|Unknown - Sep 1999|
|Christina Aguilera is biting her nails. Despite her outwardly confident demeanor, the 18-year-old admits to being a nervous wreck. "What if people don't get it? I've worked too hard for everything to unravel because of misconceptions," she says with a deep exhale. Aguilera is referring to "Genie in a Bottle," the smoldering pop shuffler that previews her appealing self-titled debut. Framed by the kind of stick-sweet chorus that megahits are made of, the tune is punctuated by a breathy, oh-so-suggestive command to "rub me the right way." |
"The song is not abo...
|Aguilera 'Bottles' Up The Top Spot - Sep 01, 1999|
|Watch out Britney, there's a new Mousketeer in town, and she means business. New teen phenom and former Mickey Mouse Club member Christina Aguilera is following in Spears's golden footsteps by entering the charts at a cool No. 1 with her self-titled debut, a feat Spears achieved at the beginning of the year with ...Baby One More Time (LAUNCH, 1/21/99).|
Aguilera's "Genie"-fueled debut, which sold over 252,800 copies, won out over another hotly ancipated release this week--Puff Daddy's Forever, which debuted at a close No. 2 for sales of approximately 205,343. These two impressive bow...
|Christina Aguilera Breaks Backstreet - Sep 01, 1999|
|Who's the leader of club, that's made for you and me...? This week it's Christina Aguilera.|
Yes, yet another act bred on the Disney Channel's Mickey Mouse Club has topped, as Aguilera's self-titled debut album bows at No. 1 for the week ended August 29, knocking out an entrenched Backstreet Boys and besting the new effort from hip-hop superstar Puff Daddy.

|Christina Aguilera, Puff Daddy Displace Backstreet Boys, Limp Bizkit - Sep 01, 1999|
|Who knew the Mickey Mouse Club would be a launching pad for late-Nineties pop sensations? For the second time this year a former Mousketeer has hit the No. 1 spot. The self-titled debut from Christina Aguilera, following in the footsteps of Disney alum Britney Spears, sold 252,000 copies for the week ending Aug. 29, according to SoundScan. That's an eye-popping debut considering Spears sold 120,000 copies her first week in stores back in January. |
Clearly, the sultry singer's radio smash "Genie in a Bottle" helped fuel her break-out success. That and the fact the assembly-line teen ...

"The difference between doing a video and perfo...
|Aguilera has shelf life - Sep 05, 1999|
|Yes, she is another comely former New Mouseketeer with a chart-topping debut single (Genie in a Bottle), but expect Aguilera to have a longer shelf life than Britney Spears. She has a sultry, expressive voice that could give Mariah Carey a run for her money, and that voice is put through its paces on this debut, which ranges from simmering dance-pop ditties to sleek Motowny numbers and an over-the-top showtune from Disney's Mulan. |
Like Carey and her diva ilk, however, Aguilera has a tendency to over-emote. The 18-year-old also could broaden her subject matter, which tends to dwell on being t...

|Christina Aguilera's not all pop - Sep 27, 1999|
|TORONTO -- "I don't want to be a typical pop singer, because I'm not," says Christina Aguilera, who has a No. 1 hit with "Genie In A Bottle" from her self-titled debut album. |
"A lot of this record, if you listen past the surface of it being a pop record, it's got many soul, gospel and R&B inflections to it."
As witnessed by her recent performance on "Late Night With David Letterman", the 18-year-old Staten Island native -- in Toronto on Thursday to appear on the MuchMusic Video Awards broadcast -- can belt it out with a force that belies her peti...
|Uncorking the Genie - Sep 27, 1999|
|Christina Aguilera just wants to be like all the other girls her age, she says. So when the 18-year-old singer, who has been home-schooled since 8th grade, got invited to her boyfriend's suburban Pittsburgh high school prom in May, she leapt at the chance. But when she arrived, Aguilera met with frosty glares from some of the other girls. Even worse, they left the dance floor en masse when the DJ started spinning Aguilera's just-released single "Genie in a Bottle." "It was kind of sad," says Aguilera. "All I want to do is be normal. But really, it's other people who wo...|
|Christina Aguilera carving out her own niche - Sep 29, 1999|
|Christina Aguilera, the latest Lolita-like pop sensation with a No. 1 hit -- Genie In A Bottle -- understands the comparisons to fellow teen music queen Britney Spears. |
She just doesn't agree with them.
"Everybody gets compared to someone," says the 18-year-old suburban Pittsburgh native while in town last week on a promotional trip. "But we are two very different artists. The way we approach what we do vocally and the way we approach music in general -- it's coming from two completely different areas. She sticks to pop the way it is -- and that's great. She's really talente...
