SHE was a Barbie Girl, unfortunately she’s now living in an LMFAO world.
Lene Nystrom and her band of merry Danish men had provided 1997 with a novelty euro-dance soundtrack with the aforementioned Mattel-angering tune and it’s successor Dr Jones.

Aqua are now back hoping to cash in on the global fascination of 130bpm pop but Megalomania doesn’t befit its lofty title.
Make no mistake, Aqua can still deliver an dancefloor anthem, I’m just wondering whether we really care. (Someone does; the band’s Aussie tour is a sellout!).
Dirty Little Pop Song and How R U Doin sound like Black Eyed Peas rejects with Nystrom autotuned to Britney levels.
Kill Myself and Sucker For A Superstar are semi-stylish and fun while the punchy Like A Robot takes an unexpected X-rated path.
IN SHORT: Diet Britney
