|Why Keep Mum About 'Baby' Bump? - Jul 01, 2007|
|Mum's the word when it comes to Christina Aguilera these days.|
Rumours that she's three months pregnant have been getting louder by the week, and strengthened by the fact that her reps have mysteriously refused to confirm or deny it.
The 26-year-old singing diva had already sparked further speculation she is expecting her first child with music executive husband Jordan Bratman when pictures of her performing on stage in Bangkok and Shanghai this week and looking thick in the waist were released.
Now, judging from how the coverage of her first-ever Singapore concert was controlled, it's almo...
|Korea’s Lopsided International Tax Treaty - Jul 01, 2007|
|The tour crew of international pop star Christina Aguilera pocketed $1 million (920 million won) for her first Seoul concert on June 23. This is the price that Christina, her 80 staffs and the tour crew were paid for their two-day work in Korea. |
Nonetheless, not a single penny of tax will be collected in Korea.
The Korea-U.S. Tax treaty which had come into effect in 1979 regulates that “in case an American affiliate offers labor service (i.e. music concerts) taxation is only possible if a fixed place of business exists in Korea.” The Aguilera’s concert in Korea was an one-time event which h...
|Christina Aguilera Goes Back to Basics - Jul 01, 2007|
|She's always had the pipes.|
Even back in the day, at the height of the teen idol wars when she faced off with fellow Mouseketeer Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera was known as the one who could sing.
And while her former rivals life seems to have taken a recent turn for the bizarre, her every mishap and misstep fodder for the tabloid press, Aguilera has wisely chosen to stay out of the rumor mill, focusing instead on her strengths: her incredible singing voice, topnotch musical direction and production, and tightly controlled image.
Her latest double-disc album, Back to Basics, showcases h...
|Back From Our Honeymoon - Jul 01, 2007|
|Which provides me the perfect segue to Christina Aguilera. There will be hip-hop dancing and singing for sure this Friday, July 6, at the pop superstars Back to Basics: Live in Manila Concert. This petite yet powerful Best Female Pop Vocal Performance Grammy winner will be performing songs from her new albumone that she describes as a fusion of jazz, blues and feel-good soul music with a modern twist.|
|Still Dirrty... - Jul 02, 2007|
|[Singapore] A STONE’S throw from where homegrown singer Kit Chan was belting out the nation’s goodbye to the National Stadium last Saturday, ex-Mouseketeer Christina Aguilera was holding 8,000 fans entranced in her debut Singapore gig.|
In a 90-minute set at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, the pint-sized singer showed that she is anything but a goody-two-shoes.
She may be married — she wed music executive Jordan Bratman in 2005 — but as a backing video clip for the song I Got Trouble and her on-stage choreography showed, the New York-born singer was still Dirrty.
In her formidable voice, Aguil...
|One hot Mama - Jul 02, 2007|
|IF THERE'S any truth to the baby rumours, Christina Aguilera proved herself to be one plucky, and very sexy, mother-to-be last Saturday night, during the Singapore leg of her Back To Basics tour.|
She shimmied atop a piano, table and, at one point, a suspended trapeze - pretty bold stuff for a reportedly pregnant woman - throughout a 90-minute set that was anything but basic.
Most of the 8,000-strong audience at the Singapore Indoor Stadium - a menagerie of pre-teens, families and grown women with a penchant for corset tops and spiked heels - were on their feet as soon as Aguilera made her en...
|Top 30 stars under the age of 30 for 2007 - Jul 02, 2007|

Born: December 18th, 1980.

|Christina Aguilera is like a bizarre chameleon - Jul 02, 2007|
|Christina Aguilera is like a bizarre chameleon - to browse her pop career is to browse a kind of hall of mirrors where every new song (and don't forget, it's about songs these days, the iTunes generation and all that, not albums) brings with it a new image.|
She is a canvas, this girl. She paints herself anew every time she emerges into the spotlight. You may remember the extraordinary video for the song Dirrty, from 2002, in which she writhed around with legs akimbo wearing no knickers to speak of in a wrestling ring with numerous oiled-up musclemen.
It was quite something. It was during thi...
|Christina Xpecting - Jul 03, 2007|
|Christina Aguilera is once again singing "Come On Over Baby." |
E! News confirmed Tuesday that the five-time Grammy winner and hubby Jordan Bratman are expecting their first child together. This will be baby number one for both.
There was no immediate comment from a publicist for the couple.
Deciding that there wasn't no other man for her after about three years of dating, Aguilera and her music-marketing exec other half swapped vows in November 2005 in Napa Valley, California.
The duo celebrated their first anniversary in Dublin in the midst of Aguilera's Back to Basics tour ...
|Christina for all seasons - Jul 03, 2007|
|In as many moods as outfits, Christina Aguilera bumped, grinded, cajoled and warmed her way into a hugely appreciative audience in her Back to Basics concert in Singapore. |
CHRISTINA Aguilera wanted her audience at the Singapore Indoor Stadium to use their imagination.
At her recent concert Back to Basics 2007, it was easy to do so, especially with the black-and-white video footages of Christina in seductive poses a la 1920’s Hollywood Vaudeville performers on giant screens.
They even showed her taking a bath in a wee tub that did not leave much to the imagination.
But I had mine in check,...
|Christina toughs it out - Jul 04, 2007|
|Pop diva Aguilera seals her fans' love for her with a rousing show reflecting her musical evolution and survivor's swagger|
If there were anything to complain about in Christina Aguilera's otherwise flawless performance last Thursday at Impact Arena, it would be that she didn't arrive earlier. It might have answered the question she asked years ago: "When will my reflection show who I am inside?"
Aguilera's first album opened with the pop song "Genie in a Bottle", but the genie has been on the loose ever since. She's a fighter now, and a scrappy fighter at that. At Impac...
|Christina Aguilera 'Back to Basics' Tour - Jul 04, 2007|
|What a girl wants, what a girl gets. And Christina Aguilera looks like one girl who has it all.|
Opening the show with her first single "Ain't No Other Man" off the Back to Basics album, Christina fueled the pregnancy rumors as she spotted a visible baby bump in a tight figure hugging white ensemble that flaunted (or exposed) all her curves.
Baby or no baby coming her way, Christina sang her heart out to the audience that night. Proving why she's a Grammy award winning vocalist, the singer delivered a powerhouse performance that looked effortless coming from her.
With three giant v...

|Christina Aguilera: Back to basics and going on tour - Jul 05, 2007|
|Anticipation is running high as Christina Aguilera performs in Manila tomorrow at the Bonifacio Global City.|
One of the most accomplished performers of the last decade, Aguilera has sold well over 25 million albums worldwide and cultivated a fan base that crosses generational, racial, and gender lines.
Last year, she released her third studio album Back To Basics, a modern take on vintage jazz, soul and blues from the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s.
In the following interview, Christina discusses details about her upcoming tour.
What can we expect on this tour?

Aguilera was married in November 2005 to husband Jordan Bratman and this will be their first kid together, but they’re yet to confirm the first reports.
The news will come with mixed feelings for many Australian fans who have tickets to her shows over coming weeks.

|Christina is coming - Jul 07, 2007|
|The Christina Aguilera road show rolls in to town this week and Perth audiences can look forward to glamour from the little lady and spectacle from the big set.|
She's the little lady with the big pipes. The dirrty-diva who has cleaned up her act by trading her risqué chaps for more glam retro look. She is Christina Aguilera and this week she will bring her Back To Basics World Tour to Perth.
Rumoured to be with child, Aguilera is unlikely to attempt any death-defying aerial acrobatic feats like those undertaken by her arch-rival Pink. So just what can Perth audiences expect from the 90 minute...
|Aguilera stops the rain & lights up the stage - Jul 08, 2007|
|They always said it’s impossible to make time for both personal life and work. |
It is very rare to be successful at both and, most of the time, one of these two areas wouldn’t be doing great.
Christina Aguilera started off as just one of the typical teeny boppers alongside Britney Spears during her “not-so-wild” days.
After earning her credibility through creating music filled with emotions and her powerful voice, Christina has remained strong and managed to keep herself together while others fell apart.
She has been very consistent all throughout these years. In 2005, at age 24, Christi...
|Christina Aguilera and Nicole Richie have baby fever, Britney apologizes for umb - Jul 08, 2007|
|Well, it looks like Christina Aguilera picked the wrong week to announce she's pregnant with her first child. |
Why, you ask?
Because her happy news was totally eclipsed by the much more astounding revelation that Hilary Duff's ex, Joel Madden of Good Charlotte, has managed to impregnate his rebound girlfriend, Nicole Richie.
Wow, Joel must be more fertile than even Kevin Federline. You know, we'd like to congratulate NiJoel (that's the affectionate/annoying nickname we've officially bestowed upon this It Couple).
But after reviewing achival footage from season 4 of The Simple Life (the s...

|She came, she showed, she conquered... |
If Madonna is music’s mother of reinvention then Christina Aguilera should be the daughter.
From pop princess "Reflection" to controversial "Dirrty" and from perky "Genie In A Bottle" to a surviving "Fighter," the pop world thought it has seen everything from the former blonde divette. But to witness her performing live with spectacular display of talent and visual calisthenics, one may conclude yet again, you haven’t seen them all, after all. Concert royalty may yet be the apt description for what she pulled off...
|Christina Aguilera's Abusive Father Comments On Pregnancy - Jul 08, 2007|
|Christina Aguilera's estranged father Fausto Aguilera has decided to comment on Christina's alleged pregnancy, telling Life & Style magazine, "I'm so excited. I want Christina to achieve all her goals. I wish her all the happiness in the world." Some publications are saying he's "confirming" her pregnancy, but the quote sounds more like they called him and told him the news, and he responded.|
For those who know Aguilera's story well, you'll know that the five-time Grammy winning diva barely has a relationship with her father, as her mother left him when she was a young...
|What 'Back to Basics' means - Jul 09, 2007|
|MANILA, Philippines - The music sounded almost like an orchestra and there were theatrical attempts to recreate bygone periods. But above all was an overwhelming presence whose voice redefined what basic talent meant.|
Christina Aguilera, reportedly in the early months of pregnancy, performed tirelessly in a one-night concert on Friday at the Fort Bonifacio Global City Open Field in Taguig. Although there were empty seats in the VIP section and a wider, unfilled space at the back, the organizers (Globe Telecom and MTV) said the gig drew about 18,000 people.
Anxiety was high as the show starte...

|Christina Aguilera hasn't announced it yet, but reliable insiders say the singer is expecting her first baby hubby Jordan Bratman. "Like any young couple, they don't want to say anything too soon and put a jinx on things," says one friend. |
Another states that, "Jordan is worried about her and won't let her pick up anything heavier than a gallon of milk."
He's also making sure she gets plenty of rest. The duo spent nearly $19,000 on sheets at the Frette store in Beverly Hills in mid-June. And Christina inquired about ordering custom-made linens for a baby crib, but left ...

Christina Aguilera's pregnancy is just as buzz worthy. Queries on the formerly dirrty diva jumped 57%, and related searches on "christina aguilera pregnant" and "jordan bratman" (her fella) are both growing. Grammys are great, but if you really want the buzz, get thyself knocked up. Let the baby do the work.

|White hot Aguilera tour opener - Jul 13, 2007|
|If Christina Aguilera has ever heard the old adage "less is more" it's something she simply chooses to ignore. In the 'dirrty' diva's mind, more is definitely more.|
Friday July 13
Review by: Jay Hanna, STM Music Editor
It was over the top all the way as Aguilera performed the first show of her Australian Back To Basics Tour.
The outfits weren't just sexy they were downright raunchy. The vocals weren't just strong they were relentless and the 12-piece band were loud and spectacular.
The moment the pint sized vocal powerhouse stepped on stage she di...

Dominated by young girls, the 12,000-strong audience screamed and clapped its way through a set of old hits and new songs from her latest album Back to Basics.
Others in the crowd tried to spot a tell-tale bump on her stomach as proof of entertainment media reports that the 26-year-old singer is expecting her first child with husband Jordan Bratman.
The five-time Grammy winner and Bratman, a music marketing executive, married in November 2005 after dating for three years.
|Cool, slick Christina - Jul 16, 2007|
|From squeaky clean to freak queen and back again, Christina Aguilera’s image has undergone regular makeovers since her genie popped out of the bottle in 1999.|
While her look and sound have shifted every couple of years, the diminutive pop chameleon’s massive voice has been her strongest selling point in a music industry chock-full of fakes, floozies and mimes.
Aguilera’s current look – long, tousled blonde hair – is partly inspired by Marilyn Monroe, while her sound is a pastiche of 40s harmony singing groups (think the Andrews Sisters), 60s soul (Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin) and 90s hip-...
|Christina Aguilera Not Hiding Pregnancy - Jul 16, 2007|
|It looks like Christina Aguilera has given up on trying to hide her pregnancy. The sexy singer performed on stage during her first Australian concert for her Back to Basics tour in Perth, Australia.|
During her performance Christina pointed at her growing belly and smiled insisting that there is a little person growing in her. She can't hide it even if she didn't point at her belly. A usually tiny Aguilera looks like her stomach is about 3-4 months along.
I guess she gave up hiding it after her dad blabbed to the press. Parents can't keep a good secret these days.
So how far along do you guy...

|Is she or isn't she? The pregnancy rumours continue to grow around Christina Aguilera.|
Photos from the singer's first Aussie show in Perth at the weekend show a more rounded Aguilera than we're used to.
Adding fuel to the whispers, her management is insisting journalists cannot ask her about the "P" word.

It suggests Aguilera may have done a deal with a magazine to announce a possible pregnancy, as she did with her wedding photos, and talking ...

The blonde bombshell readied herself for last night's sold-out concert with a dinner at the Argentinian Bar & Grill on Monday night. The pint-sized singer showed she had quite the appetite (perhaps eating for two?), hopping into calamari and then a steak.
She even asked her music executive hubby Jordan Bratman to cut up her steak for her?
It wasn't only Christina who was off the grog. No one in the party indulged in alcoholic bev...

|Britney reportedly is helping mom-to-be Christina on club and musical project - Jul 19, 2007|
|For years, one of the hottest ''feuds'' in the music world was the rift between former Mickey Mouse Club members Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. Now, however, it sounds like the two pop divas have made peace -- and a source close to Aguilera tells me it's likely the singer's pending motherhood (which she has yet to confirm) has something to do with it.|
Here's what we know: Aguilera reached out to Spears, and the two reportedly have spoken on the phone, e-mailed a lot and smoothed things over. So much so that Spears is both hosting the upcoming Las Vegas opening of the LAX nightclub (in...

Dirt-digging website The Smoking Gun reports a police escort (apparently she abhors traffic) is just one of the health nut's usual colossal 'rider' – or contract – demands.
See part of her demands, right, although there's some scepticism about the bells and whistles.

The blonde pop princess, showing a noticeable bump that gives away the fact she's four months pregnant, put on a showstopper to prove why she's considered one of the best female vocalists in the world.

|Big smile, cute button nose, a world-famous performer ... it's amazing the effect Mickey Mouse has had on the world of pop. Forget childhood stars who fade into oblivion, Christina Aguilera is among a group of megastars who had her grounding in the Mickey Mouse Club, the long-running American television show that began in the 1950s and had revivals in the 1970s and 1980s.|
It was the sixth and seventh seasons of the Mickey Mouse Club in the early 1990s that proved a breeding ground for superstardom. Aguilera - with her feisty voice and dance skills - was a cast member, alongside Britney Spears...

|A show pregnant with energy, musical finery - Jul 26, 2007|
Acer Arena, Olympic Park, July 24
For someone who's rumoured to be pregnant, you might think Christina Aguilera is taking a few risks with her breathlessly energetic, senses-frazzling live spectacular. The word "risk", however, might be the very thing that drives the former Mouseketeer to create such inventive and ambitious concert experiences as this. (Well, that and the fact that she doesn't quite hold the same kind of megastar status as Britney Spears or Kylie Minogue.)
This tour is in support of Back to Basics, yet another Aguilera album with more sparkling p...

It was a rare public sighting for Aguilera, whose Australian tour winds up in Melbourne.
