|Dirrty's Director Apologized - Oct 2002|
|David LaChapelle, the director to Christina Aguilera's latest video 'Dirrty' has responded to criticism that posters in the video say 'Thailand's Sex Tourism' and 'Young Underage Girls' in Thai'.|
"I had absolutely no knowledge that this poster contained such offensive words, and I sincerely regret the insult," LaChapelle said in a statement. "Thailand is a beautiful country with a long cultural history that I truly respect. I would never intentionally do anything to insult the people of Thailand. Please accept my deepest apologies."

|Aguilera, Christina: "Stripped" - Oct 2002|
|In Late 1999 the world was cast under the spell of 'Genie In A Bottle' - and its parent self-titled debut album... 10 million albums later and another multi-million selling single as part of the Moulin Rouge extravaganza - CHRISTINA uncovers a sexy, sassy and uncompromisingly brazen new album of her characteristic brand of cutting edge urban groove. |

|Review on Stripped - Oct 2002|
|To call this album preposterous would be a grand understatement. Circus acts featuring a hundred unicycling elephants juggling flaming torches to the theme tune from 'The Dambusters' are preposterous. Ten-hour rock operas about the fall of the Roman Empire, acted by knife wielding octogenarians and sung entirely in Icelandic are preposterous. This twenty track, seventy-seven minute, magnum opus of a career reinvention is so ridiculously, unbelievably, fantastically over the top you can't help looking for the name Jim Steinman on the sleeve.|
Forget all you know about Christina Aguilera. She's ...
|The Fall Album Line Up - Oct 01, 2002|
|Christina, "act 2" to Britney, hopes to flip the switch towards adulthood on the new CD. She's already started, with the "Lady Marmalade" single, and her "groupie chiq" look at the recent VMA's. She also wants to be called "Xtina". RCA GM Richard Sanderssays that "she never had that goody two shoes image, so the leap is not as great for as some of the others." Rumor also has it that she co wrote a coupe of songs. |
The Mainstream Thought
Rumors of a duet with Redman are apparent, but all bets are off as to weather the image change will take.

|NEW YORK — Offered her first peek at the new video from Christina Aguilera, Mashati Valez squinted into a small video screen perched on a Manhattan sidewalk and took in the pop star in all her "Dirrty" glory.|
"My goodness, she's changed," Valez declared.
The New Yorker quickly and neatly summed up the reaction that most had after Aguilera's latest clip hit the airwaves on Monday. The David LaChapelle-directed video sees the young singer — clad in red panties, chaps and a bikini top — spar with a masked female boxer and writhe against an armload of female dancers while a s...

|BRITNEY Spears may be only 21 but she is already starting to sound old to her target audiences. "I'm quite sick of her music and videos. Maybe she should sit still and sing a proper song," says junior college student Jennifer Lai, 18.|
In fact, while Spears and clones like Jessica Simpson, Christina Aguilera, Mandy Moore and Willa Ford ruled MTV over the last three years, a new breed of photogenic songbird is taking flight.
They don't dance, they go easy on the make-up and, more tellingly, they wear clothes that don't shout for attention – and keep them on.
But perhaps what's most ...

Artist Joanne Gair apologizes to a guest who complains of sensory overload in her presence. "I have that effect on people," she says. She is a ball of fire in Chinese pajama pants; she is a whirling dervish, a Nepalese tonka with a million faces, a human mandala.
Heidi Klum, Naomi Campbell, Madonna, Christina Aguilera, Demi Moore, Elle Macpherson, Cindy Crawford (shall we go on?)--she's painted them all. Their bodies are Gair's canvas. "I'm an illusionist," sh...

|I'm happy now I'm raunchy, says Aguilera - Oct 10, 2002|
|Christina Aguilera has spoken of how she's emerged from a "breakdown" with a new-found sense of freedom.|
The singer, in the UK to launch her new album Stripped, told how she is now in the business on her own terms.
And she says she is more comfortable with her new raunchy image rather than pretending she is sweet and innocent.
The 21-year-old said: "I got to a point where I just couldn't do it anymore. I'm not great at faking my way through trying to live up to the perfect American virginal sweetheart kind of thing.
"I just have to be me. I have to do my thing."
|Christina Aguilera: Daring to be "Dirrty" - Oct 10, 2002|
|Christina Aguilera is getting "dirty" -- literally. "Dirrty" is the title of her new single, and in the video Christina didn't leave much to the imagination, shaking, bumping and grinding in a barely-there outfit that would make even Madonna blush. Just two months shy of 22, Christina is no longer an innocent "Genie in a Bottle." With her upcoming album, Stripped, Christina is striving to "strip" away the teen-queen past that made her a Grammy-winning superstar. Access Hollywood's Billy Bush sat down with her and talked about the changing image. |
|Walt Disney rolling in his grave over 'Dirrty' video - Oct 10, 2002|
|Recently, my friends and I were watching MTV's "Making the Video." |
The video being made was for Christina Aguilera's latest song "Dirrty." I was in shock. I do not remember one positive comment my friends or I said about the video.
Music artists and producers have sunk to an all-time low. They no longer care about their integrity and only want to give people what they crave most: sex appeal.
It was such a dramatic change from the days when she was a featured singer and actor on Disney's "Mickey Mouse Club."
The message behind Disney is wholesome and family or...

The video surpasses even the offerings of Madonna in her prime for scandal value as Christina gets into the boxing ring wearing minimal attire and proceeds to gyrate her way through the track.
'Dirrty' shifts Aguilera right into the hip-hop/R&B arena trading blows with heavyweight microphone specialist Redman and 'Lady Marmalade' producer, Rockwilder.

The beauty, 21, credits her forthcoming album Stripped with saving her from insanity and is bouncing back into the charts with a new sense of freedom. Christina says, "I've had to learn the hard way, through backstabbings and betrayal.

|Busty pop queen Christina Aguilera admits she is recovering from a nervous breakdown.|
Betrayed by close friends and burned out by the brutality of the record business, the 21-year-old revealed how she hit rock bottom in April.
She says her new album, Stripped, was the circuit-breaker that brought her back from the brink of abandoning her pop career.
"This record saved me from insanity," Aguilera said.

After a steamy dance session with model Lucy Mans and an encounter with MOBO Award Winner Ms Dynamite, the London Mirror reports that Timberlake was spotted late night with his infamous ex's arch rival, Christina Aguilera. Aguilera arrived at the Mayfair Club with her 12-man entourage and proceeded to enter into a champagne buying contest with Timberlake.

|Pop star Christina Aguilera's latest video has caused outrage in Thailand, because it alludes to the country's sex industry. |
Marketing chiefs in the country have decided not to use the promo, which features the scantily-clad 22-year-old dancing next to a wall with posters in Thai which read "Thailand's sex tourism" and "Young underage girls".

|'Dirrty' Christina Aguilera Video Thai-ed To Sex Industry - Oct 18, 2002|
|Scenes in Christina Aguilera's "Dirrty" video contain images that are suggestive, sexy and downright lewd. One particular moment, however, advertises something that's simply illegal.|
Two posters seen in the video feature Thai script that translates to read "Thailand's Sex Tourism" and "Young Underage Girls" — references to Thailand's much-criticized, tourist-driven sex industry. The signs can be seen during Aguilera's boxing-ring sequence (see "Christina's 'Dirrty' Makes Some Fans Ill, Others Hot To Eat Her Toes").

|Christina Aguilera in Trouble With Thailand - Oct 18, 2002|
|Christina Aguilera’s raunchy video for her hit single Dirrty has been banned from local TV in Thailand, but the controversy isn’t over the near-naked costuming – the pop diva alternates between bum-baring chaps and a microscopic miniskirt – nor the sweaty bump-and-grind dance moves. The criticism stems from a set of posters included in the Mad Max-like set in the background of the clip.|
The southeast Asian country’s government has aimed their complaints at messages that read “Thailand’s sex tourism” and “Young underage girls” in Thai on the walls behind a boxing ring in the video – and have s...
|The New Mainstream "Work." - Oct 18, 2002|
|Christina Agulierra: The ever-present no. 2 in the female pop music game had no choice but to evolve or have her career die. She was coy at first about starting "the new work" as a member of that unholy quartet that did the "Moloun Rouge" single. After laying low for a while, Christina came back to the game by using the "grown up" card which was a perfect excuse to show up semi naked at events. Like Pink, the 2002 model is also "street wise;" she now prefers to be called "x-tina." The once teen pop star gimmick was now "an act that I was t...|

No, they Thais aren't shocked by Christina's lack of clothing or numerous crotch shots, they're offended by the set designer's choice to use posters that paint Thailand as a haven for underage sex trade workers. |

In the clip, the pop tart writhes about in revealing costumes and gets very close with several of her dancers (click for photos from the video). While that's pretty much de rigeur for pop music videos these days, a few of the concepts are a little more out-there (see "Christina's 'Dirrty' Makes Some Fans Ill, Others Hot To Eat Her Toes"). While Aguilera and director David LaChapelle may be familiar with the...

The video shows a (surprise!) scantily clad Aguilera in a boxing ring with a bevy of oiled up studs. But it is neither Aguilera’s sexy clothes nor the racy dancing that has angered officials - it is the fact that posters displayed in the video translate to "Thailand’s sex tourism" and "young underage girls."

|Christina Aguilera has a right to sing the blues. Just ask her. Sure, the 21-year-old found pop stardom seemingly overnight back in 1999, when her self-titled debut album launched the chart-topping hits Genie in a Bottle and What a Girl Wants. The subsequent smash success of her remake of Lady Marmalade— a single that also featured Pink, Mya and Lil' Kim — confirmed Aguilera's status as the hottest teen diva since her fellow Mickey Mouse Club alumna Britney Spears.|

|Sometimes having a Grammy winning voice just isn’t enough. Add some creative freedom, a team of certified hit makers to collaborate with, and a wardrobe that would make a Burlesque dancer blush, and you have Christina Aguilera’s new and cleverly titled album “Stripped.” Co-writing and co-producing with such heavy hitters as Rockwilder and Alicia Keys, Aguilera seems to have achieved what she’s been searching for: street credibility.|
“I’ve been waiting a long time for this,” Christina announces in her “Stripped Interlude,” which marks the beginning of the record’s trend of Christina speaking h...
|Aguilera Explains New Image - Oct 25, 2002|
|Christina Aguilera is surprised by the uproar over her raunchy new image.|
The former Mickey Mouse Club star, 21, has invoked controversy with her scantily-clad appearance in the video for her new single "Dirrty," but she explains that all she's done is mature.
She says, "Everybody grows from ages 17 to 21 so this has been my growth. I do have a sexual side, who doesn't? In the video I kinda portrayed that.
"It's shocking for people, I think, coming off an image which, at the height of the teen pop phenomenon, was so cookie cutter and clean-cut. It was an image that reall...

|Christina Aguilera Loves Kiddy Porn - Oct 26, 2002|
|In the new video for Aguilera’s song “Dirty,” there are posters in the background, written in Thai, that say “Thailand’s sex tourism” and “Young Underage Girls.” |
Ok, first off, why would they have posters written in Thai in this video? I haven’t seen the video, and I sure as hell won’t go out looking for it on MTV, but can someone explain that to me? As for the messages on the posters, at least they’re not lying to ya! You want to bang a 13 year old, Thailand’s the place to go! Damn, I knew that my fiancé and I should’ve looked into some more “exotic” locations for our honeymoon!...
|One Man's Trash Is Another's Treasure - Oct 27, 2002|
|Christina Aguilera likes to get body piercings when she has a bad day, and since you don't see any on her face it would lead you to believe her private places are pierced. She only has 11, which is annoying. I would kill for 11 bad days total in my young life. What does she do at metal detectors? I would love to be that security guard, "Spread your legs!" Its in the good section because it made me feel fuzzy.|
|Reviews of "Stripped," "Scarlet's Walk" and more - Oct 28, 2002|
|Christina Aguilera Stripped (RCA)|
It's a shame that the first single from Stripped is "Dirrty." It's hard to hear the song without conjuring up that Girls Gone Wild: Beyond Thunderdome video. And more important, "Dirrty" completely misrepresents the rest of the album. The title of Stripped screams "Look at my privates!" but the quieter message is "Be true to yourself."
With its lack of gimmickry and surplus of sweet Seventies soul, Stripped is an album for grown-ups. The sophisticated fare includes the torchy can't-let-go number "Walk Away,"...
|New Releases: Christina Aguilera, '8 Mile,' Bone Thugs, Nirvana, Nick Carter... - Oct 29, 2002|
We've seen her get dirrty; now it's time for Christina Aguilera to get Stripped.
The former genie releases her second album proper, one she calls more personal and authentically X-tina, featuring collaborations with Lil' Kim and Redman and production by Alicia Keys, Linda Perry and Scott Storch.
In other pop-gone-mature news, Nick Carter steps out as the latest boy band member to release a solo album. Now or Never finds a more down-home Carter playing guitar as well as performing some of his own material.
Also out Tuesday is the "8 Mile" soundtr...

|Censoring the revolution - Oct 29, 2002|
|Our society allows women to subject their bodies to endless scrutiny for magazine ads -- only to have them airbrushed over -- and then wonders why anorexia and bulimia are such problems for teenage girls; MTV loves Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, both of whom sing, as Jones calls it, "the illegitimate child of hip-hop: hip-pop." And yet, they ignore a strong, multitalented woman like Jones.|
|'Dirrty' Work - Oct 29, 2002|
|The inside story of Christina Aguilera's new album. Producers Rockwilder and Linda Perry explain how Aguilera tried to get real on ''Stripped's" singles.|
What a girl really wants is artistic control. Or so it seems with Christina Aguilera's new album, ''Stripped,'' due Oct. 29. The album's 20 new tracks offer an updated version of the 21-year-old singer's musical tastes and personality. ''She carefully chose the lyrics and the songs,'' says Bob Jamieson, chairman of Aguilera's label, RCA, ''because they represent her outlook and perspective on life.'' Here's the story behind the album's ...
|Liza Minnelli, Ben and J-Lo and Christina Aguilera - Oct 30, 2002|
|NEW YORK — Liza Minnelli, Ben and J-Lo and Christina Aguilera in the tawdry video glare of The Foxlight. |
Liza with a "Z" now stands for zero beccause that's how much footage we're going to see of her home life in a planned reality series. VH1 pulled the plug on an Osbournes-style show because Liza's husband/producer David Gest was more producer than husband. The small amount of freak show footage that was shot was done under weird conditions. For example, crew members shooting the bizarre couple had to wear surgical booties. And VH1 complains they didn't get to see much of Liza.
|Christina Aguilera, Naughty but Nice - Oct 30, 2002|
|Say this for Christina Aguilera: In the trollop-pop race to bare the most flesh, shake the most rump and carry on like a $50 ho, she's now comfortably in the lead. |
On the cover of her new album, "Stripped," she's naked from the waist up, a couple of strategically placed hair extensions the only thing standing between her and a guest spot on the next "Girls Gone Wild" video. She's flat-out starkers in latest issue of Rolling Stone, save for a pair of pleather boots and a guitar that's doubling, sort of, as a bra. And for the video of her first single, "Dirrty," h...
|Christina Stands Up For The Ladies, Discusses Father's Abuse - Oct 31, 2002|
|Those who've watched Christina Aguilera prance about in her revealing video for "Dirrty" might be shocked at the pop singer's new look, but she says she's just being herself and won't apologize for it.|
Still, she begins her new album, Stripped (November 5), with an apology. "Sorry you can't define me/ Sorry I break the mold/ Sorry that I speak my mind/ Sorry don't do what I'm told," she sings on "Stripped Part 1."
While she may not really be breaking the musical mold, Aguilera is dead set on breaking away from teen pop, and she stretches the genre's boundaries t...
|CD Review: Christina Aguilera's 'Stripped' - Oct 31, 2002|
|It's hard to take Christina Aguilera seriously these days. The former teen queen's new single "Dirrty," from her album "Stripped," comes off like a desperate bid for musical relevance, with its shrill hip-hop groove and a guest spot from rapper Redman. And lately, the barely clad star looks like she stepped out of HBO's "Hookers at the Point."|
This perception is what makes "Stripped" such a complex surprise. Far from being a one-note come-on, the album is a vulnerable exploration of one young woman's struggle to understand her sexuality. She's not a tea...
|Stripped - Hiponline Music Review - Oct 31, 2002|
|artist: christina aguilera |
Everyone seemed to wonder what happened to Christina Aguilera. The press has trashed her, she’s tried to shed her pop artist skin, and the question is whether she’s come out of it unscathed. The intro to the record shows she wants to put it all behind her.
“Can’t Hold Us Down (featuring Lil’ Kim) – Aside from the stellar vocals this track is hot and lets her flex her lyrical and vocal muscles.
“Walk Away” and “Beautiful” – The slow pace doesn’t take away from her chance to shine. This could keep Etta James in suspens...
