|Wishin' On A Star - Oct 1999|
|At just 18, Christina Aguilera is already a number-one singing sensation! So how did she make her wish come true?|
Q: Your new single, Genie In A Bottle, was a number one in the US. What's it about?
A: Well, in the past, a genie has always been portrayed as a slave for a man. But in my song, we've changed it around. It's like 'I'm not coming out of my bottle until you do what I want!' I make the wishes come true, too.
Q: Do you remember wishing you could be a star?
A: Oh, yeah! At ten-years-old, I wished so hard to be famous. I made lots of wishes about boys, too. I'd say, 'This year, let tha...
|United States of Aguilera - Oct 1999|
|Roll over Britney. Classmate Christina Aguilera’s already conquered America. Now she’s about to conquer us. |
You’ve probably seen the video by now. Night-time on a beach somewhere dead exotic. An incredibly blonde woman/girl is wishing around in a sparkly Chloe T-shirt and hotpants pleading with you to “rub me the right way”. Or maybe you’ve heard it on the radio.

|Teen Genie - Oct 02, 1999|
|Christina Aguilera talks about the trials and triumphs of being a teenage idol.|
In the flesh, Christina Aguilera looks and sounds like an immature American teenager -- not the older sex symbol she appears to be in music videos and photographs: 'Every time I see myself in magazines, it never looks like me,' she admits. For the 18-year-old, who has sold more than three million singles and albums in the US in the first weeks of her career, has been styled, groomed and blowdried to within an inch of her pop life. 'I like my hair better curly, but the record company wants it straight for now,' she...
