All Made by Bee49
song was written by Aguilera, Claude Kelly and Ester Dean, while production was handled by Dean. It is a dance-pop song, with elements of electropop. Lyrically, it is about loving one's self-image, beauty, and being vain.

The song received favorable reviews from music critics; many critics praised the tongue-in-cheek lyrics, Aguilera's vocals in the end of the song and named it a "concise and raunchy dance song". The song charted at number 58 on the Gaon International Download Chart.

BackgroundEdit

One of the co-writers of the song Claude Kelly talked about the album, saying: "Christina has an album that’s going to slap people in the face. The music still has her signature, big note vocals and emotions, but the sound is definitely more aggressive, more futuristic than the last album." During an interview with Kimbel Bouwman for HitQuarters, Kelly revealed: "I can say that the sound of the album on a whole is very futuristic and very fun. The records I did for her are all up-tempo and fun, they’re party anthems but at the same time have underlying messages. It’s all very edgy stuff." On May 13, 2010, the songwriter Ester Dean revealed through her Twitter that she had produced her first song, revealing that it was "Vanity".

CompositionEdit

"Vanity" was written by Aguilera, Claude Kelly and co-written and produced by Ester Dean. It is a dance-pop song, with elements of electropop.

The song positions her as a harmless, mirror-kissing vamp. In the beginning, she talks: "I'm not cocky, I just loooove myself, bitch!". "Every day I see myself/I love me even more," sings Aguilera. It features tongue-in-cheek lyricism. "Mirror mirror, on the wall, Who’s the flyest bitch of them all?, Never mind, I am," Aguilera taunts off the top of the track. In the middle, she interrupts the proceedings to hum "Here Comes the Bride," then snarls, "Now, I take myself to be my Lawfully. Wedded. Bee-itch!". Towards the song’s final line, Aguilera asks: "Let us not forget, who owns the throne?" which is followed by her son, who replies "You do, mommy."
