|From Mickey...To Genie - Aug 1999|
|Six years ago, the "Genie In A Bottle" singer was playing away on the set of the Mickey Mouse Club. Here's the scoop on her all-star crewmates: |
Interviewer: With all the kids on MMC, it sounds as if it was like going to summer camp on TV.
Aguilera: It was! I was there for two seasons with Britney Spears and Justin and
JC from N Sync. We all became like brothers and sisters.
Did the older kids seem cool?
Oh, yeah. Britney and I were the youngest, and we totally looked up to the older kids, especially Keri Russell, who was 15.
What was Keri like back then?
She was the firs...
|New Talent: Christina Aguilera - Aug 1999|
|Child stardom wasn't a piece of cake for Christina Aguilera. It was a piece of pie--literally. While filming Disney Channel's Mickey Mouse Club six years ago, Christina says that once, "I had to have a pie thrown at my face." She frowns, adding, "That wasn't too fun. Nevertheless the Mouse house has been quite the breeding ground for today's young singing sensations, and 18-year old Christina is ready to take her place beside fellow ex-Mouseketeers Britney Spears and *N Sync's Justin Timberlake and JC Chasez. |
The song that should launch her magic carpet, "Genie in a bottl...
|RCA's Christina Aguilera, A Rising Star with a Powerhouse Voice - Aug 1999|
|With the Top 20 A/C Hit "Reflection" from the Disney animation film "Mulan" already under her belt, Christina Aguilera's knockout voice is quickly getting the attention of both fans and critics alike. While her outstanding vocal ability has been compared to Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, Aguilera continues to define and showcase her powerful voice on her recently released self-titled debut album for RCA Records. The first single, "Genie In A Bottle," entered Billboard's Hot 100 Singles chart at Number 12 with multi-format airplay quickly climbing across the U.S...|
|Christina Aguilera: I dream of Genie - Aug 01, 1999|
|Her debut single, "Genie in a Bottle," rocketed to number one in the blink of an eye, but that doesn't mean Christina Aguilera is going to disappear just as quickly. The eighteen-year-old semi-diva has every intention of hanging around for a while.|
Cutting her showbiz teeth on "Star Search" and "The New Mickey Mouse Club" -- hasn't everyone these days? -- Christina struck gold at the age of seventeen when she got pegged to sing "Reflection" for the hit Disney flick "Mulan." RCA Records came calling around the same time, and now the soulful you...

|Christina Aguilera's Hot Video: "I Was Freezing My Butt Off" - Aug 10, 1999|
|Eighteen-year-old Christina Aguilera has chalked up a top candidate for this long, hot summer's signature song with her debut, "Genie In a Bottle," which has been vacationing at number one on the "Billboard" Hot 100 singles chart.|
The video has been a popular mainstay on MTV's "Total Request Live" as well, and the clip's idyllic, romantic portrayal of beachside fun was a pretty far cry from what Christina experienced herself, as she recounted to MTV News.
"God, first of all, I was so cold. I was freezing my butt off," Aguilera told MTV News. "It w...
|Disney To Roll Out "MMC" Marathon Featuring Britney, Christina, 'N Syn - Aug 13, 1999|
|Christina Aguilera and 'N Sync's J.C.|
M-I-C... See your favorite singers before they were superstars. K-E-Y... Why? Why not?
With a cast consisting of Britney Spears, 'N Sync's Justin and J.C., Christina Aguilera, and even Keri "Felicity" Russell, the '90s version of the "Mickey Mouse Club" turned out to be a virtual goldmine of talent. Now the Disney Channel is ready to prove its prescience with a marathon of vintage "MMC" shows which feature the pop idols in their younger, more moppet-like days.
As a public service to pop culture mavens, we're presenting a ...
|Weekend Cover Story: Blessed by a 'Genie' - Aug 13, 1999|
|With the summer's hottest single, the girl who grew up singing the national anthem for the Pirates and Penguins could be pop music's next superstar |
Someday soon, if all goes well, she hopes to buy a pair of shoes she swears are nothing short of "totally amazing."
It would be her "little splurge," she says.
For now, there is no time for such frivolity -- with all the photo shoots, the interviews, the live performances, the TV special tapings and, of course, the travel time that comes with being No. 1.
She's lucky she's able to make it home to Wexford once...
|Christina's World - Aug 16, 1999|
|A new teen star has a voice that goes way beyond mere kid stuff |
Sometimes the gods of pop music like to play a little joke. Browsing the aisles of a Times Square record store the other day, Christina Aguilera got quite a surprise. Unrecognized amid the hurly-burly of fellow shoppers stood one of her heroes, Fred Durst, leader of the red-hot rock-hop band Limp Bizkit. Aguilera zeroed in, angling for an autograph, but it was not to be: her quarry slipped into the crowd and scurried away. What Durst didn't know is that the petite blond with the big eyes was not just another fan but one of the m...
|Christina Aguilera - Aug 16, 1999|
|Aguilera's sexy, soulful ''Genie in a Bottle'' has already granted her hit-single status. But the powers that be aren't taking any chances with this 18-year-old, preternaturally piped ex-Mouseketeer (yes, another one). They've corralled a magic carpet full of writers and producers for Christina Aguilera, a cannily made pop debut that's meant to reel in both kids and the grown-ups driving them to those 'N Sync and Brandy concerts.|
When Aguilera straddles the crossover-appeal fault line (''So Emotional'') she delivers giddily delicious radio pop. But more often, she plays intergenerational Ping...

|Teen Genie - Aug 21, 1999|
|There was Christina at the trendy MAC cosmetics shop in Los Angeles’s tony Beverly Center when, she says, “Suddenly, these girls come up to me and they’re screaming, ‘Are you Christina Aguilera? “Genie in a Bottle”?’ They had jus bought my single and had it with them. Then they went out and bought a disposable camera to take my picture.”|
|Mary J. Blige Bested by Backstreet - Aug 25, 1999|
|She captured the No. 2 slot with sales of 239,000, just a hair behind the Boys in the band, who sold another 243,000 copies of Millennium. However, their days at No. 1 may be numbered as new releases from rappers Puff Daddy and Noreaga and popster Christina Aguilera are expected to open strong next week.|
