Ms Blog: I have to ask about the Christina Aguilera album Bionic: You contributed to the “My Girls” track.
JD Samson: Christina is a fan of Le Tigre. She was making a record of collaborations with other people that she respects and that she’s inspired by, which I think is so cool. We always have loved Christina. She’s an outright feminist in everything she does, and she speaks her mind and she is an incredible woman. She also is an incredibly hard worker and knows her craft better than anyone I’ve ever experienced. Johanna [Fateman, from Le Tigre] and I went to L.A. and worked with her for a week and spent, like, 10 hours a day in the studio, just the three of us and an engineer. People don’t expect that; they think there is going to be all these producers around and the truth is we were right in it all and we felt very comfortable. Now we’ve been writing music for other people a little bit and trying to change our world.
