|Phony Christina Aguilera song is exposed.|
PLOY Surprise! ''The Real Slim Shady (My Reply)'' isn't real.

More than 8 million people own a copy of the disc, which has spawned two No. 1 singles: Genie in a Bottle and What a Girl Wants.
For a performer as commercially successful as the 1999 winner of the Grammy Award for best new artist, what could be sweeter than an afternoon full of 10-minute chats with reporters?

|Sonicnet Music News|
On her upcoming Spanish-language album, "Mi Reflejo," Christina Aguilera delves into her Latin roots, covering a traditional tune alongside Spanish versions of her multiplatinum hits.

The album, due September 12, will feature Spanish-sung versions of five songs from her 1999 self-titled debut album, with five originals and on...
|Christina Aguilera Prepares Spanish Debut - Aug 17, 2000|
|There was a time when Christina Aguilera's main asset was her voice, a strong, supple instrument mature and dynamic beyond her teen years.|
These days, Aguilera -- who in February won the Grammy for best new artist -- has found an equally valuable asset in her surname, the stamp of authenticity her label is banking on to make her Spanish-language debut a success.
At a time of intense crossover from the Latin market to the English-speaking world, "Mi Reflejo," marks her as one of few mainstream pop superstars to release an entire album in Spanish. Moreover, while crossovers in either...
|Christina Aguilera: What a girl wants - Aug 17, 2000|
|So, Christina Aguilera, you're just 19 and you've already won the Grammy Award for best new artist. What are you going to do now?|
Don't sell her short. Ms. Aguilera, described often by critics as having the best voice among the current crop of teen-age heartthrobs, began preparing for that best-new-artist Grammy more than a decade ago.
Now she is looking ahead to a career as a songwriter; her next album, a collection of songs in Spanish due out in the fall, will reflect her Latin heritage (her father is from Ecuador).

|Can you believe it was almost exactly a year ago that a then little known Christina Aguilera performed at Riverbend as part of Lilith Fair.

Her set that day was a short one, complaining she had tonsillitis.|

|Aguilera Records In Spanish For The Fans - Aug 25, 2000|
|As hard as it may seem to believe, Christina Aguilera's self-titled debut album was released one year ago yesterday (August 24, 1999).

|The screams, the green glow sticks, the teen girls who haven't quite figured out how to gracefully operate a pair of high heels -- it sure felt like another bubblegum pop show Thursday night.|
But with Christina Aguilera onstage at Pine Knob, it certainly didn't sound like one. By the time the 19-year-old rookie star had wrapped up her 70-minute set, she had pushed herself well out of today's crowded pop pack, proving she's less a successor to flimsy acts like Britney Spears than to enduring voices like Mariah Carey.
A capacity crowd of 15,200 was on hand as Aguilera opened her set with the u...
