"My Kind Of Christmas" (RCA/BMG)
In Summary: Sure, Christina sounds like Mariah, but where's the Christmas spirit?

We Fancy: Christina's ability to sound like Mariah, hitting all the notes in the scale. And we really like the faster stuff like "This ...
|Grammy 2001 Fashion Police - 2001|
|What's with the Bo Derek do? First the blotched leopard spots, then the pink highlights, now Christina Aguilera seemed to have been watching "10" with her braided hair. And that outfit would have looked alright without the lacy cape. Honestly, what this girl wants is a good stylist and to start to dress her age more.|

|Sanity Just Be Free Review - 2001|
|"Just Be Free was recorded when I was only 14 and 15 years old... did not intend that the recordings would be widely released, especially after I signed with a major record label. I have not updated or finished the versions recorded in my childhood and they are being released 'as is,' although I tried to prevent the release for several years. The recordings do not in any way reflect my current musical taste and where I am as an artist. The growth and vocal development I experienced as I matured into young adulthood is not reflected in the recordings. The album of new recordings that I int...|
|Christina Aguilera - 2001|
|Where is she from?|
Christina grew up just outside Pittsburgh, USA.
What do I need to know about her?
Her first single wasn't the hugely successful "Genie In A Bottle". Christina sang the mega successful ballad "Reflection" from the soundtrack to the Disney movie Mulan. When Christina was younger she starred in the Mickey Mouse Club with Britney Spears and while there are rumours the two don't get along they recently presented an award together on MTV and put a stop to all the gossip!
What is she up to in 2001?
Christina will be going global in 2001, she plans to recor...
|Christina complains about Monte Carlo - 2001|
|While Ricky was quite happy with his trip to Monte carlo (he picked up three awards), Christina Aguilera was less than impressed. First she growled on her arrival at the overcast skies ("I came here for a tan" she said. "What on earth has happened to the weather?"), then about the size of her hotel room ("It's too small," she reportedly complained, adding that someone who's sold "millions of records" should have a bigger room)....|
|Star Wars - Jessica Simpson VS The World - 2001|
|What’s with those little pop girls, huh? Sweet lil’ Jessica Simpson recently had a go at her rivals…what prompted the mean outburst remains unclear.|
Victim 1: Christina Aguilera. Jess said, “Christina and I talk and I think she’s a great person underneath the façade. She is very big right now, she definitely knows she has sold eight million records and I don’t really like that in people. It’s important to stay normal, but people lose their heads in this business. I knew Christina before her stuff came out, but she hit so fast and some people just can’t handle it.” Ouch!
Victim 2: Britney Spe...

|Chrissy-fit! - 2001|
|Diva-in-training, Christina Aguilera reportedly got a tad upset at the recent World Music Awards in Monte Carlo. Apparently when she saw her $1,500 a night suite, Chris complained the room was too small and insisted on being moved to a more luxurious room!...|
|Christina criticised for comment at Grammys - 2001|
|Christina Aguilera may have won the Best New Talent Grammy, but she wins no awards for her memory! Speaking at the Grammy's - with reference to Britney - she said "ballads are more important than a pop song with a catchy hook". Excuse us, but wasn't it a 'pop song' called "Genie In A Bottle" that got you there? Watch your ego, girl!...|
|Christina Convert - 2001|
|Thanks heaps for your article on Christina Aguilera in the June issue of GF. I was never really a fan of hers, but after reading your article I realised she is, in fact, a talented performing artist, not just a 'blonde bimbo'. Because Britney had world usccess with her baby-doll looks and sexy publicity photos, I feel Christina is forced to follow in Britney's tracks and make herself cute, or tacky. Britney rakes in millions of dollars with her successful formula of a gorgeous body but sickly sweet candy voice. After listening to Christina's songs like "Lady Maramlade" and "Nobo...|

|Where will they be? - 2001|
|Their mutual identity crises. Christina looks and sounds just like that other teen singing sensation, Britney what's-her-name, while Eminem worries we might forget him and is constantly reminding us, "My name's Slim Shady, and I'm Slim Shady." We got it, Slim Slady.|
|Starboards - 2001|
|Just when it looked like The Mickey Mouse Club couldn't possibly churn out any more success stories, along comes Christina Aguilera. |
The 19-year-old singing, dancing, video-making whiz kid became pop music's latest teen queen this summer with the release of her first single, "Genie in a Bottle."
The surprising success of her self-titled album, which debuted at number one in June and has remained in the top five since then, only confirms what Christina has known all along--that she was destined for stardom.
Although she calls the Pittsburgh suburb of Wexford, Pennsylvania, home,...

|The Breast Within - 2001|
|Perhaps using some sort of strong potion, Christina Aguilera is growing larger by the second at the Grammy Awards. In her Trish Summerville crushed-silk frock, she's definitely expanding globally. And it looks like those snakelike braids are holding her captive. Quick, someone save her before she explodes!...|
|People En Español's 2001 Worst Dressed List - 2001|
|She has a perfect body, a beautiful face and a voice that has conquered the whole world. However, when it's about her appearance, this 20 year old successful north American pop singer, can't hit the mark on any. |
"This is a nightmare overdose," states Samy, about Aguilera's style, who jumped to success with her catchy single "Genie in a Bottle," and later, with her spanish album titled Mi Reflejo.
"In her search to stand out, she has become a clown." adds Sammy. He is not the only one thinking this way. "She's like a small Cher," comments Rowinsky abo...
|Soultrain Interview (Transcript) - 2001|
|Soul Train : At what age did you begin performing?|
CHRISTINA: I began performing at local block parties and pool parties around age six or seven, just locally around my home town of Pittsburgh.
ST: And did your parents encourage you?
CHRISTINA: My parents were definitely supportive, but, you know, people always ask me, 'Did you have, like, the typical stage-mom thing?' or whatever. But, really, maybe I was like a stage-child 'cause I pushed my parents all the way and they have been so supportive and so great. My mom now runs my fan-club, so it's great.

|Fate of Christina album unsure - 2001|
|The fate of a Christina Aguilera album made when she was just 14 years old could be resolved by Wednesday afternoon. |
"Just Be Free" was recorded by Aguilera's early producers, Platinum Recording, long before the pop diva signed her current deal with BMG.
Now Aguilera is suing Warlock Records -- the company that is planning to release "Just Be Free", along with Platinum Recordings and JFB Music -- for improper use of her name and likeness for their own profit.
"They [Warlock] do not have the right to distribute those early recordings," Aguilera's lawyer, Carl...
|Christina insulted again - 2001|
|Once again, Christina Aguilera feels insulted. |
Just when the tiny blond pop star was recovering form Eminem's insults in "The Real Slim Shady," Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst has offended her, MTV reports.
After Fred performed with Christina at the MTV awards, the rock singer claimed he only did the duet "for the nookie".
"I want that girl, that's that," he said.
But Christina, who heard Durst say that on TV, was quick to set the record straight.
"You wish you got some nookie from it," Christina told MTV in response to the comment. "He got no no...
|Aguilera, Christina : Just Be Free - 2001|
|Before Christina Aguilerabecame an over-made-up harpy, she made a really terrible album. This is it. Recorded pre-'Genie In A Bottle', her breakthrough hit, 'Just Be Free' combines lame 'dance' grooves with lyrics that would disgrace a Hallmark card, delivered inAguilera's teeth-grinding vocal style. Granted, she was only in her mid-teens when she wrote and recorded this stuff, but it's not so much juvenile as remedial. |
The title track (which, like two other songs, appears again in a slightly different version) could almost be construed as a postmodernist joke - a song composed entirely of p...
|Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mya & Pink : Lady Marmalade - 2001|
|In an ironic twist, the guest stars of this update of Labelle's classic (no, you dink, All Saints's DIDN'T record it first) have succeeded in making a video that renders their release somewhat unforgettable.|
Why? Because they all look like a bunch of ropey old wenches; the sort of over-done whore-bags that strutted around the bar while Doris Day's Calamity Jane went through her identity crisis. But what's most worrying of all is that its all deliberate! The make-up artist and wardrobe mistress weren't on crack! In fairness, they're supposed to look like whores, showgirls, whatever, cos this s...
|Christina Does Coke, Pam Gets High - 2001|
|It seems that Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera have been following virtually the same career path as they're both blonde, scantily clad, musical top-sellers, and now, they're both promoting colas. Just after Britney's Pepsi commercial aired during the Oscar ceremony, it was announced that Christina would become Coca-cola's spokesperson. |
To be fair, Chrissie had already signed a deal with Coke, although it was originally only for Latin America. But because the commercials were such a success, Coke conveniently decided to show off the soul-voiced beauty across North America.

|You’re Not Going Out Like That! - 2001|
|They may be millionaire pop gals, but even Britney and Christina can’t escape the wrath of their elders every now and then. First to flip out in a parental stylee is Britney’s ma, who’s in a tizz over her daughter’s er, hair. She’s concerned her blonde locks may fall out, due to over processing at the hairdressers! |
Meanwhile, chez Aguilera, Christina’s gran was reportedly livid to see her granddaughter’s new saucy image for the Moulin Rouge song. ‘Feisty’ Grandma Fidler (Christina’s mum’s mum) pointed out the look was more laydee-of-the-night than Lady Marmalade… to which Christina quipped, ...

|Thousands of fans get an eyeful when pop babe opens her legs!|
Chart-topping pop pertlet Christina Aguilera got 60,000 fans ROCK HARD with the help of this sizzling outfit.
Kitted out like a French hooker, the 20-year-old beauty sent the male members of the crowd into a frenzy as she performed her raunchy new song Lady Marmalade.
The song, launched in the UK yesterday, is all about a famous French prostitute whose life has been retold in new film Moulin Rouge, starring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor.
Curvy Christina decided to get into the spirit of the character by wearing white fishnet...
|She Rocks.. She Shocks! - 2001|
|Christina Aguilera is keen to recognize her Hispanic roots and produce music which reflects her maturity. And why not. She has acquired a fair bit of experience for one so young, as Honie Stevens found out.|
No doubt about it, Christina Aguilera loves the Caribbean. She’s fascinated by Puerto Rico, having visited the island more than ten times and recorded much of her Spanish album, Mi Reflejo, there. She has also made trips to the Bahamas, particularly Sol Kerzner’s Atlantis Hotel in Paradise Island. In fact, Christina received the demo of her chart topper hit while vacationing on St. Barts, ...
|Hair To Eternity - 2001|
|This year’s motto of the stars: the more hair, the merrier. Hey, why spend months growing yours out when it takes mere minutes with you’ll-swear-it’s-your-own-hair extensions. Faith Hill transformed herself from short – shorn pixie to long-hair goddess. Christina Aguilera even looked sexier after adding a few inches to her shoulder-length style. Serena Altschul replaced her tousled, boyish cut with wild dreadlock-like spiral curls. And Angelina Jolie looked positively goth at the Oscars with her sweeping Morticia-inspired jet-black hair. The best part of this trend: a drastic change without th...|
|Platinum Blonde - 2001|
|Y2K was a dream come true for Christina Aguilera. As she prepares to plot her next move, the superstar opens up about Fred Durst, Britney Spears and her year to remember. |
Christina Aguilera has a way of standing out in a crowd – even when she’s sitting down. Take today, for instance, at her Teen People cover shoot. She’s the one in the makeup chair, getting a foot massage from her personal assistant. Taking a sip from her jumbo cup of coffee, she reminisces wearily about the events that immediately preceded her entry into pop music’s platinum club. But one event in particular brings a specia...
|Christina Aguilera at No. 11 - 2001|
|11 Christina Aguilera|
Dirrty Last Year: 66
FHM says: Ah, mother’s worst fears come true…and all the better for it! Think about it. The proud New Yorker – just 23 – loves steak, regularly blesses our man world with knee-weakening-videos, refuses to “cover up” and has more metal in her naughty bits than airport security might comfortably permit through the gate. She all woman!
She says: Bite her, and you may get away with it. “One of my dancers but my nipple really hard – I don’t even know how that happened.”...
|Christina and Ricky Martin - 2001|
|Ricky Martina and Christina Aguilera recently teamed up to record, "Nobody wants to be lonely", which originally appeared on Ricky's Sound Loaded CD, and cut one of the most memorable videos of the year. |
Last year's Best New Artist at the Grammys was nominated for two more this year, and is also looking forward to dropping another new solo CD later this year. Christina sure is ready to blow the top off the recording industry with her electrifying stage presence and her booming voice. This girl has gotten so big that BMG is creating the Christina credit card, which will donate money...
|Label Settles With Aguilera, Will Release Demos - 2001|
|A blast from Christina Aguilera's past is scheduled to hit stores Aug. 21. |
A lawsuit had been filed in an attempt to block Warlock Records from releasing some of Aguilera's early demo recordings. The pop singer (pictured, right, from her Web site) made them when she was 14 and 15.
However, a settlement has been reached and the songs will be available in stores on a compact disc called "Just Be Free."
Included in the CD will be a letter from Aguilera, explaining that she has grown professionally and personally since the songs were recorded, and they do not reflect her current mu...
|Just Be Free - 2001|
|For those who've ever wondered what Aguilera was doing four years ago, here's the answer: applying her nascent pipes to low-budget, cookie-cutter house tracks. As she informs us in her disclaimer-heavy liner notes, these recordings (the release of which she initially attempted to block) were ''a possible stepping stone'' and never intended to come out. Now we know why. Historical reference point: The way the 14-year-old Aguilera tepidly growls lines like ''Why don't you stay with me tonight?'' clearly set the stage for her teen-jailbait persona. |
|Will the Genie get more steamy? - 2001|
|Will the Genie get more Steamy?|
If you’re shocked by Christina Aguilera when she release new studio album, that’s cool with her. The “Lady Marmalade” singer wants to kick the showgirl look up a notch, promising that her next video and CD will be even more racier than Britney. “To be honest, I’d really like to go too far,” she says. “I feel like I can flirt with the limits for many years.”
|What A Woman Wants - 2001|
|Two years ago, Christina Aguilera was just another teenager. Since then, the Pittsburgh native's self-titled debut CD and singles like Genie in a Bottle and What a Girl Wants have elevated her to one of the princesses of teen pop. Last year Aguilera released Mi Reflejo, a Spanish-language CD. In her new Beverly Hills, Calif., home, Aguilera, 20, relaxes with her puppy Stinky and talks to TIME about her next album and her new life as an adult star. |
Q. What's going on with your new CD? We hear you're writing for the first time.
A. I'm getting credited for my writing. I actually had some contr...
|Christina Aguilera Mi Reflejo - 2001|
|You go, girl! Riding on the coattails of the Latin explosion, teen sensation Christina Aguilera decided to tap into her Ecuadorian roots (on her father's side) and brush up on her Spanish. With her newfound tongue, she translates five tracks of her multiplatinum self-titled debut. "Genie in a Bottle" becomes "Genie Atrapado," "Come On Over" becomes "Ven Conmigo," and her other major hits get code-switched and granted the added value of Spanish guitar and dizzied-up Latin disco beats. Fans, especially those who understand the language, should rush to pick...|
|Christina says: "Go for it!" - 2001|
|Have a crazy idea? Like to wear your hair wild? Christina says it’s cool to be unique!|
Sure, there are fun things about being a star, but sometimes celeb life can be tough when you’re dealing with criticism. Christina is used to it. “Everyone has an opinion on what I’m saying, doing, wearing. I go with my gut instinct. I say what I’m feeling,” she says.
A brave look
Even if you don’t always love Christina’s flashy fashions and hair choices, you can admire her for doing what she wants and not what other want. “Nobody is perfect. I’m just living my life.” she says.
Risks aren’t easy
