|How to be sexy by Christina Aguilera - Jun 2006|
|Whatever look she's working, Christina Aguilera's style and attitude ensure she's always gorgeous. Here, the dirrty girl shares her secrets...|
1 Break out from the mould.
When Christina appeared on the pop scene in 1999, she looked just like her chart rival Britney Spears. With blonde hair, baggy pants and crop tops, she was the clean cut girl next door. But it wasn't her. "I remember turnig up at a photo shoot and there was a clothing rack in front of me full of all kinds of floral and 'pretty' clothes," she says now. "And I was like, 'This is VERY not what I to be! It's n...

Working with Christina taught me a lot; it was like going back to school. I had first became acquainted with her in 2002 through musical director extraordinaire Rickey Minor, who had called me to audition for her upcoming tour. After becoming her musical director and touring with her for the entire year, she called on me to arrange her Grammy performance...

|Christina Aguilera - Ain't No Other Man - Jun 2006|
|Rating: 4.5 out of 5|
From the opening sax tones and vocal fanfare, we know we're in for a hot, funky ride. This is an invigorating, welcome return by Christina Aguilera. She has returned from some of the bewildering shifts in style of the album Stripped to a confident strut shamelessly showing off one of the most powerful set of pipes in the music business, and it's all in praise of her husband and life partner.

|Snap Judgment: Christina Aguilera's new video - Jun 2006|
|Say what you want about Christina Aguilera's new single, "Ain't No Other Man" (although, frankly, you should just admit it's frackin' genius), but even haters are going to be hard-pressed to find fault with the accompanying video that got leaked on YouTube yesterday. (Click here to see if it's still up.)|
The clip leaves the singer's men's-room-romping, chaps-sporting Xtina alter ego in the past, and reimagines her as jazz-club chanteuse Baby Jane, who rocks seven classy-sexy looks in just under five minutes, each more flawless than the one before it (especially that final silver dre...
|MorleyView: Linda Perry - Jun 2006|

What was running through your mind when you were on stage with her playing "Beautiful" at the Grammies? Was there a part of you that was going that should be me over there singing that? That's my song. |
Linda: No. The hard part about "Beautiful" is that it's so deeply personal. That song, I didn't mean to give it to Christina at all. In fact, the way it actually happened was the first time Christina came to my house for the very first time, because at the time I had a stu...

|This may wind up being my last blog item of the afternoon, seeing that as soon as I finish posting it, I've got to shut my office door and engage in a little bit of light, Da Vinci Code-style corporal mortification. And what sin would require such a rousing bout of self-abuse, you might ask? Well, earlier this afternoon, I got my first earful of Christina Aguilera's new single, ''Ain't No Other Man,'' (check it out here) and my response was one of only mild enthusiasm, something along the lines of ''Hey, that's pretty good.''|

Christina Aguilera premiered her new single "Ain't No Other Man" on radio stations across the country today. I was driving into work listening to Ryan Seacrest on his morning radio show, KIIS-FM, when I heard it. And for those amongst you who have also heard it -- you probably already believe me when I say this: along with Rihanna's "S.O.S.," Mary J.

|Christina Aguilera: "Ain't No Other Man" - Jun 06, 2006|
|A lot of people scoffed at the potential of a DJ Premier/X-Tina hook-up. Jordan Bratman-hitching is proof-positive of her questionable taste, so the decision to let Primo work on some sample-delic jams for her new album was met simultaneously by aghast hip-hop heads and pop-freak fright. Obviously, it's a damn good song. Built on a familiar horn loop and a tick quicker rhythm than Premier is used to rolling with, Aguilera's often histrionic vocals are not just curtailed, limiting showboating, but sped-up. Her strident, rap-like tone dovetails wonderfully with the beat.|

|It's been a surefire recipe for a summer jam since 2003: Take a snippet of a '70s soul corker, twist it until it loops around on itself, then heat up the concoction with a spitfire vocal performance. (See also: "Crazy in Love," "1 Thing.") Hip-hop mastermind DJ Premier uses that plot to terrific effect on Christina Aguilera's new single, which leaked last week—"Ain't No Other Man" is so urgently amped, it makes poor Beyonce and Amerie seem like shy types who spend the hottest days of the year doing crosswords at the kitchen table.

SINGLE: AIN'T NO OTHER MAN
NEW YORK (Billboard) - Christina Aguilera has come a long way from the youth pop class of 2000. Upcoming album "Back to Basics," a "modern take on vintage jazz and blues," may test her core, but first single "Ain't No Other Man" is primed for radio saturation, with its hip, melodic imprint and the world-class diva's instantly recognizable vocals.

Christina Aguilera has come a long way from the youth pop class of 2000.

|Christina gets 'Back to Basics' - Jun 13, 2006|
|She's calling her new album Back to Basics but there is nothing basic about Christina Aguilera. |
She was a star at seven (singing the national anthem at parties and ice hockey home games), a TV performer at 12 (as part of The All New Mickey Mouse Club with Britney, JC and Justin) and a breakout phenomenon at 18 (with her number one hit 'Genie in a Bottle').
She sang 'Lady Marmalade' (with Pink, Mya and Lil' Kim), won Grammys and sold over 20 million albums.

|With her considerable vocal talents, Christina Aguilera could've easily played it safe-releasing a ballad or a dance track as the first single off her upcoming album "Back to Basics."|
Instead, she took a risk -- not only mixing genres -- but generations. And the result is a brilliant pop gem that is destined to become a classic.
The song is called "Ain't No Other Man"-- and rather than walking a straight line-it veers off into Philly soul, hip hop and modern pop -- deftly mixing an old-school horn section with cutting edge production. The combination is both unexpected an...

|She might have gone through a more demure phase after her marriage last year, but Christina Aguilera seems to be back to her Dirrty girl form. The diva was sporting a red hot look as she arrived to film The Late Show With David Letterman in New York. |
The blonde bombshell stepped out in skin-tight red pedal-pushers and a black shirt unbuttoned to reveal a leopard-print bra, as she made her way to the TV studios this week. Glamorous as ever in huge shades and toting a white Chanel handbag, the petite starlet showed no signs of reverting to the toned-down look she's adopted of late.
|Christina Aguilera Makes EW Party a Must - Jun 22, 2006|
|New York, June 22, 2006 – "Entertainment Weekly" did it up big at its annual “Must List” party, featuring a performance by Christina Aguilera. The other hot songbird of the moment, Nelly Furtado, had everyone so entranced – and flashbulbs popping – that The Sopranos’ Steve Schirripa went virtually unnoticed as he followed her down the red carpet. “I have a better ass than Nelly Furtado”, Schirripa quipped, and turned and shook it for us. His daughters, Bria and Ciara, were duly mortified. |
Robert Downey, Jr. got there late, around 11 PM, and told the screaming paparazzi to calm down...
|Xtina Packs A Summer Punch Too - Jun 22, 2006|
|Christina Aguilera is also riding high with her new song ''Ain't No Other Man.'' All it takes is one listen to reveal why it's another strong contender to be Song of Summer 2006. The funky horns, swaggering beats and Aguilera's celebratory attitude make the classic-styled R&B stomper the perfect genre-bending summer jam, along the lines of Beyonce's ''Crazy in Love'' from three years back. It's also an enticing preview of Aguilera's third album, Back to Basics, hitting stores August 15. Aguilera set out to revive and slightly modernize the sound of vintage jazz and soul from the greats tha...|
|James Jams With Aguilera For Photo Shoot - Jun 23, 2006|
|Jazz legend ETTA JAMES was shocked when she met CHRISTINA AGUILERA, because she couldn't believe such a powerful voice came out of her tiny body.|
The two singing sensations came together for a photo shoot for the July (06) issue
of InStyle magazine, and James was astounded at her slight build.
She says, "At my age, 68-years-old, to run into a lady like this...

|Music Musings: Grammy Predictions (June 23, 2006) - Jun 23, 2006|
|Article about Grammy nod predictions. Christina mentioned.|
It may seem early to start talking about next year's Grammys, but there is only three months left in the eligibility period (which runs from October 2005 thru the end of September, 2006) and there are some early frontrunners worth noting right now.
"Hips Don't Lie"-Shakira's infectious, Latin-inflected duet with Wyclef Jean--seems like a shoo-in for a Record of the Year nomination (the category honors performance while Song of the Year is awarded for songwriting). It may not be groundbreaking-but it sure is catchy which has...

|Like, when I’m pregnant, OK? - Jun 25, 2006|
|CHRISTINA AGUILERA voiced her frustration with being a newlywed to this week’s Entertainment Weekly, because everyone wants to know when she and her hubby, Jordan Bratman, will have kids! |
“Everyone’s like, ‘Oh, since you’re married now are you gonna have children?’ ” said the 25-year-old singer, whose two-disc set “Back to Basics” is due out Aug. 15.

|Divas duking it out this season on charts - Jun 27, 2006|
|Get ready for diva warfare on the radio this summer, as Beyonce, Janet Jackson and Jessica Simpson scramble into the ring next to early arrivals Christina Aguilera and Shakira.|
Beyonce’s new single “Deja Vu” (Sony Urban/Columbia) doesn’t club you over the head with its hotness the way “Crazy in Love” did. This one’s smoother, with a jazzier vocal take over the Stevie Wonder-soul horns and the midtempo groove. Then Jay-Z drops a couple of hot verses (“I don’t make the list, don’t be mad at me/I just make the hits, like a factory”) and knocks it out of the park.
Jackson’s new single “Call on M...

|Christina Aguilera Can Die Happy — She's Bonded With 'Bad Girl' Idol, Etta James - Jun 28, 2006|
|At photo shoot, Aguilera dismisses studio 'technology' in favor of 'raw heart.' |
Christina Aguilera says she can die happy now — because she's met her idol, legendary R&B singer Etta James.
The two posed together for a photo spread in the July issue of InStyle, which matched up singers with their musical mentors. The pairings include Mary J. Blige with Chaka Khan, John Legend with Quincy Jones, Fergie with Rita Marley, and Faith Hill with Aretha Franklin.
But Aguilera's coupling with James nearly brought the singer to tears because James seemed to idolize her too.
"Etta is my all...

|Beyoncé, Aguilera, Jackson, Simpson and Jewel: Seeking Another Turn in the Spotl - Jun 29, 2006|
|By accident or by design, it's comeback season on the pop charts. Which means that right now five A-list (or formerly A-list) pop stars are clamoring for our attention. They are, in the order their pleas were quoted, Beyoncé, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, Janet Jackson and Jewel. And they are, all of them, telling us how much they missed us, in hopes that we'll tell them the same thing.|
For Beyoncé and Ms. Aguilera, both of whom are returning after hit albums, the task is simple: they just have to prove they can still do what they did last time. That explains "Deja Vu" (Colum...
|Scott Storch's Outrageous Fortune - Jun 29, 2006|
|An article on Scott Storch. He mentions Christina.|
"I worked with Beyoncé on her last album," Storch says. "I wasn't invited to the new album. I only delivered three hit records last time. But a lot of artists figure they want to try something different. Whatever. There's certain artists who are loyal and certain ones don't really care and don't give you the opportunity to follow through with them again. I'm insulted by a lot of the artists I delivered hits to."
"Like Christina Aguilera." Storch made seven songs for her most recent album, Stripped, tw...
|Christina Channels Marilyn Monroe For Intimate Album Cover - Jun 29, 2006|
|Singer relaxes in bed on front of Back to Basics.|
When Christina Aguilera started working on her bluesy, soulful follow-up to Stripped in February 2005, the singer was inspired not only by the sounds of the 1920s, '30s and '40s, but the look of those eras as well.
So when it came time to shoot the artwork for Back to Basics a year later, Aguilera knew exactly what she wanted.
"The glamour from those eras was so amazing as well [as the music], so I'm referencing Marlene Dietrich ... Marilyn [Monroe] ... Carole Lombard ... Greta Garbo, Veronica Lake, there's so many," Aguilera said ...
|MUSIC COLUMN - THE BEAT: A swing, some misses - Jun 29, 2006|
"Ain't No Other Man"
From: "Back To Basics"
Due: Aug. 14
Since she's been gone, Aguilera's place as the pop tart who can sing has been severely threatened by Kelly Clarkson, whose grip on the charts isn't loosening anytime soon.
So now that Aguilera has reinvented herself as the anti-skank, crooning Billie Holiday songs and flaunting a waxy blonde mane and curve-hugging gowns, you had to wonder -- with a bit of worry -- what type of music she would concoct.
Her first example is a thick summertime jam full of funk and sass. It's still coated with that...
|Xtina Fans Want a Refund! - Jun 29, 2006|
|As Christina Aguilera returns to the music scene and tops the charts with her new single "Ain't No Other Man," fans are wondering when they'll get their money back for tickets they bought for her concerts in 2003 and 2004 that she canceled, blaming strained vocal chords.|
FansRule, the company the pop diva hired to run her website and fan club, is said to be responsible for the lack of refund situation. FansRule is currently being run by a bankruptcy court since filing for Chapter 11 in November of 2003, and still owes fans refunds for the canceled shows.
On her official website, Ch...
