|Xtina Carbo-Loads Ahead Of Tour - May 2003|
|WENN reports Christina Aguilera's trainer Ashley Borden says the singer is deliberately loading up on carbohydrate-laden foods to give her more energy for when she hits the road with *NSYNC star Justin Timberlake this summer.

|Christina Aguilera says she's not copying her rivals Britney Spears and Madonna by dying her hair black, she's just sick of being blonde.

On Friday at the Wachovia, at least one of them succeeded.
Aguilera mounted a sophisticated and shocking show, moving through a series of outfits, some of them involving less cloth than a handkerchief. With the help of some Vegas-y dancers, she created excit...

|Justin On Xtina - Jan 2003|
|*NSYNC star Justin Timberlake was on MTV's Total Request Live on Tuesday, and had this to say about Christina Aguilera when asked about her image: "Honestly, I wouldn't put her in a category with either. I wouldn't put her in trailer trash, I wouldn't put her in clever pop chick, you know? I don't think what she's doing now is trying to be clever. And I don't think she's trying to be trash because, I mean homegirl can sing. She's bad. And that's going to translate in 5 years just like how it translates right now when you listen to 'Beautiful'.

This young girl who was compared to Christina at the begining of her career, in that time when the trend was all about teen blonde artists. Now we all see from another perspective; Christina and the rest are two separate worlds, many of them dissappeared on the way and Christina is still around. The truth is that the tracks will be two balads, Mandy Moore was left with her jaw dropped when she heard it: "she is a great artist! I admire her so much!", sayd Mandy....|

|Rock and country are heating up the summer tour season while pop and rap warm the bench. "We're seeing a changing of the guard and a shift to harder music," says Ray Waddell of Billboard.|
Christina Aguilera's summer tour with Justin Timberlake is the "only major pop tour of any significant scope."
By Marc Serota, Reuters

I mean really do you honestly think that stilett- hoes, snakeskin boots, sparkling booty pants, see through mid-drifts, provocative tanks and chartreuse mini-skirts are appropriate for an academic environment? And if we think they are, then why were only some people mistakenly informed of this competition?|

Christina Aguilera's the one who should be making a run for public office.
There's definitely an underlying — no, make that overlying — agenda at play during the 15 minutes of phone time this writer is granted with Lady Aguilera one recent, magical weekday evening.
A candid conversation, it's clear from the start, is not in the cards.
Everything that tumbles out of the former teen queen turned buttless-chaps-sporting r'n'b strumpet's mouth has the politician's calculating manner about it, as if someone's standing a few feet away with cue cards displayi...
|Justin out-points Christina - Jul 30, 2003|
|Give Justin Timberlake the edge in this summer's big battle of the former teen-pop queens.|
Just kidding, Justin. I read the paper. Nice one. Nevertheless, it was obvious mere minutes into Timberlake's closing set last night at the Air Canada Centre who belongs at the centre of a gaudy showbiz spectacle like his Justified And Stripped tour with Christina Aguilera — which returns to the ACC tomorrow after Timberlake's uptown date with the Rolling Stones this afternoon — and who doesn't.
Years of toil as a boy-band drone in 'N Sync have sharpened Timberlake into a savvy entertainer who's comple...
|Justin and Xtina live: The Sex! The Screaming! - Aug 2003|
|A summertime doubleheader featuring Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera sounds like the hottest tour of ... 1999. Still, the onetime Mouseketers have weathered the teenpop storm and emerged older and, if not wiser, or least skankier. This was never more apparent than at the June 8 show at Washington's Tacoma Dome. Despite her jet-black fright wig and dodgy feminst theory ("I pierce, therefore I am"), Christina (or, ahem, Xtina) won the night with her company, vampy spectacle topped off with real live singing, while Justin made up for his thin solo material by urging the girls to...|

That's what this Backstreet Boy's solo show Sunday night in San Francisco was all about: proving that he has what it takes to transform himself from teen pop idol to adult star.
Unfortunately, the evidence provided at this concert didn't support this point of view.
Based on this show -- as well as on his debut solo record, "Now or Never" -- Carter does not seem ready to join the ranks of Aguilera, Timberlake, Pink and other artists who have successfully transitioned from kiddie crowds to adult audienc...

Speaking to a popular teenage magazine, the petite vocalistress took a swipe at her make-up-addicted pop rival, suggesting that the 'Genie In A Bottle' crooner must tone down her style and look.
"I've seen a few outfits where she's gone too far. It's just drama," she said. "That's the word, drama! The make-up, the clothing - I'm like, 'What is she wearing?'"

|Christina Aguilera's life-long dream of gaining recognition in the music business came true in a very big way. Maybe that's because the remarkable teenager was literally signed, sealed and delivered to the pop world overnight, joining up with RCA and Disney almost simultaneously. The musical newcomer sings 'Reflection' from Disney's newest animated film, Mulan.

|Christina Aguilera is biting her nails. Despite her outwardly confident demeanor, the 18-year-old admits to being a nervous wreck. "What if people don't get it? I've worked too hard for everything to unravel because of misconceptions," she says with a deep exhale. Aguilera is referring to "Genie in a Bottle," the smoldering pop shuffler that previews her appealing self-titled debut. Framed by the kind of stick-sweet chorus that megahits are made of, the tune is punctuated by a breathy, oh-so-suggestive command to "rub me the right way." |

|Who: 18-year-old Christina Aguilera; new diva on the block |
The skinny: You might recognize her voice from the 1998 Disney film, Mulan where Christina performed the single, Reflection. Since then, she's been working on her self-titled debut album that mixes upbeat pop with powerful ballads.
Why she's cool: One listen to her voice and you'll know. Her soulful sound will make you forget Mariah and Whitney; this girl has got it goin' on. Christina says her influences are Julie Andrews, Billie Holiday and Etta James.
Betcha didn't know: Christina is another Micky Mouse Club alumni to make it ...
|The Girl at the Top - 1999|
|The day Christina Aguilera heard the news that "Genie in a Bottle" had topped the American charts, she nearly took a tumble off the edge. |
Of a Japanese bathtub. "I freaked out," she says, her voice an endearing reminder that Aguilera really is 18, no matter how mature her vocals sound on "Genie."
"So I got the news," she continues. "And I was, like, sitting on the edge of my bathtub and I almost fell backwards and, like, what-ever, but I screamed so loud, I think I woke my neighbors up. It was early in the morning and it was just an amazing ...

|Sure, Christina Aguilera came out of the New Mickey Mouse Club, just like Britney Spears, but this teen is a step above teenybopper. |
Her rich voice has range, maturity, sensuality and sexuality - and the slick R&B/pop numbers on her debut give her plenty of space to work it with true diva aplomb.
Though she never really wanders out of romantic waters, her material gives the impression that she's an adult woman - nothing that would demand and explicit lyrics sticker, but (thankfuly) she skips the cutesy-coy bit completely: "I just know when you put your hands on me I feel ready and...

|Sure, she's model gorgeous, but there's more to 18-year-old Christina Aguilera than meets the eye. For starters, she's a full time big sis to four younger siblings and she's lived all over the world. And, like so many other megastars today(think Justin and JC from 'Nsync, Britney Spears, and Kerri Russell), Christina started out on Disney's Mickey Mouse Club at age 12. The real shocker? Inside the petite package, there's a powerful voice- somewhere between Mariah and Fiona-that's impossible to ignore. |
Lame fame- "It's hard to make friends when you do what I do. I travel a lot, and when ...
|Justified/Stripped Tour Not Selling? - Jun 17, 2003|
|NY Post: THE "Stripped and Justified" tour of Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera, is running into problems. Concerts West, the promoters, are having trouble selling tickets and are looking for "more intimate" venues, said an industry source, though they won't admit it. When last Wednesday's debut concert in Vancouver was canceled abruptly, the given reason was "long delays at the U.S./Canadian border resulting in insufficient set-up time for the tour's extensive production." But Chicago's Kiss 103.5FM said many seats were unsold, and, "the 45-city tour,...|
|The pop-hop of Aguilera and Timberlake wows 'em - Aug 02, 2003|
|(August 2, 2003) — Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera have shed the Mickey Mouse ears. Are those real devils’ horns? |
This “ Justified and Stripped” tour is a smart thing. On a hip-hop landscape littered with questionable young CD-sellers, Timberlake and Aguilera are clearly the most talented. Both are one-time members of The New Mickey Mouse Club, along with Aguilera’s arch-rival Britney Spears, Timberlake’s ‘N Sync teammate J.C. Chasez and Felicity star Keri Russell. And what 14,000 mostly young people witnessed Friday night at Buffalo’s HSBC Arena is one giant Mouse makeover.

|Christina Hits Back At Family Criticism - Feb 16, 2003|
|Christina Aguilera and her mother have hit back at family claims they've made up stories about the pop star's violent dad to help her sell more records.|
Aguilera has often angered her uncle Johann, her father's brother, with stories about her dad's drunken attacks on her mom Shelly Kearns.
But it's the emotionally charged ballad I'm OK on her new album Stripped that has incensed Johann most, prompting him to claim the pop star has been "brainwashed" by her mother.
But, speaking on a TV news special in America on Friday night Kearns admits her daughter's memories of her violent you...
