|CHRISTINA AGUILERA – “Dirrty”: Christina, at the start of her career, just like Britney, kept her virgin state, but with time she revealed that this type of style does not bring a lot of money, so she turned to more explicit lyrics, and videos.

|Christina Aguilera's latest Tour Traipses The Globe With A Nod To Jazz And Blues|

|Aguilera gets credit for ambition, at least - May 02, 2007|
|Imagine Patti LaBelle decided that she wanted to be U2, and that's where Christina Aguilera is nowadays. Like R&B legend LaBelle, Aguilera has a massive voice that's prone to oversinging. And like U2, she invokes musical icons with a please-take-me-seriously earnestness that can border on desperate.|
That makes Aguilera's current album "Back to Basics" (RCA Records) her version of U2's "Rattle and Hum," a self-conscious roots move she hasn't quite earned yet. But she deserves credit for ambition and trying to stretch. That also goes for Aguilera's live show, which playe...

|They may look and sound sexy, but Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani have embraced old-time values. Think June Cleaver in a garter belt.|
Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani weren't always so pure, so good, so gosh-darn American.
Once, they were Bad Girls.
Christina, the former Mouseketeer, longed to be Xtina, to abandon the "Christ" and embrace the sin. "Sorry, I'm not a virgin, " she sang.
Gwen, the tank-topped tomboy, longed to break free, to strut her independence. "I'm in the mood, so come on and give it up, " she sang.
Then a funny thing happened: On t...

|Basics with a new shine - May 04, 2007|
|Christina Aguilera says one thing that has always impressed her about jazz and blues singers of earlier generations -- such as Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald or Etta James -- is their ability to affect listeners with the pure power of their voices and the way they convey lyrics and music.|
"Nowadays, sort of anybody can make a record," Aguilera said in a recent teleconference. "It's so easy to enhance a vocal just by using technology that, you know, it does make the old singers sound even more real just because they had to be able to do it (naturally). They had to be able to mo...

|Aguilera Showcases 'Back To Basics' Music - May 05, 2007|
|Perhaps only in the world of pop music could a show this splashy and entertainingly excessive be dubbed "Back to Basics."|
But if Christina Aguilera's tour is no more stripped down than the 2006 album with which it shares a name, her music shows heartening signs of looking back to the basics - R&B, blues, soul and gospel.
That, more than the choreography or costume changes, was why her performance Friday night before a St. Pete Times Forum crowd of 11,538 was a success.
Even when she was piping out teen pop such as "Genie in a Bottle," Aguilera's vocal talents were ev...
|Aguilera Goes 'Back to Basics' on Tour - May 06, 2007|
|The diverse audience of 11,538 at the St. Pete Times Forum Stadium in Tampa on Friday night didn't seem to expect Christina Aguilera to take the stage wearing roll-on glitter, ready to help them reminisce days when she was merely a "genie in a bottle," cooing along to canned pop background music.|
In fact, they had enough of a 1990s flashback with performances by the concert's opening lusty girl groups Danity Kane and The Pussycat Dolls, who flexed and stretched their way through acrobatic motions suitable for the flashiest of Las Vegas showgirls and seedy corner cabaret dancers.

Christina Aguilera is standing on stage in front of me. I can only see her silhouette but it's her alright. She's striking a pose at the top of the stair case, in all her sexy glory, and then she struts to the front of the stage. Okay, so I'm gushing but in real life the pint sized singer really is something.
This crowd in Atlanta - the home of hip hop freaks Outkast - is loud. I've never...

In Britney's defense, she has cumulatively built two years of marriage, albeit a little over 24 hours to one man and just shy of two years to the now infamous, 'K-Fed'.
