|After the collapse: Tour goes on; so will lawsuits - Aug 15, 2003|
|The Justified/Stripped tour will apparently go on after Saturday's equipment collapse at Boardwalk Hall.|
And so will the lawsuits, unless show business and the insurance business go through some radical transformation.
Steven Rosenfeld, a New York City lawyer who deals with entertainment insurance issues, said it's impossible at this point to know who will be sued - and who will be found liable - for the mishap that kept pop stars Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera from taking the Boardwalk Hall stage Saturday.
A Timberlake representative said this week that the Atlantic City show wil...
|Theater of the adored - Aug 15, 2003|
|The Justin & Christina variety show|
Once upon a time, in the age before rock and roll, Americans went to theatrical musicals for their pop thrills. Now, in the tabloid age of American Idol, Behind the Music, Making the Band, and The Osbournes, we increasingly look to pop musicians for our theatrical drama, to satisfy the place in our collective imagination once filled by the great Broadway stage and Hollywood screen musicals of yesteryear. Every now and then there’s a Moulin Rouge or a Chicago, and the lights of the Great White Way haven’t dimmed, but the shows put on by blockbuster pop a...

|Transcript: Stripped |
August 10, 2003
Reporter: Chris Cuomo (20/20)
Producer: Marc Dorian
RICHARD CARLETON: She was the all-American girl with an all-American success story, the working-class kid with the big voice who made the really big time. But then the nice girl-next-door turned naughty. Christina Aguilera got down and dirty with a raunchy new image and an entirely new sound. The new album was called Stripped and that pretty much described the new look too. And as Chris Cuomo reports, Christina Aguilera has now bared her soul as well, revealing for the first time all the pain of a tr...
|Allyson Hannigan mentions Christina in Glamour magazine!! - Aug 2003|
|It's in the new issue with Beyonce on the cover. I can't scan it 'cuz I only read it in the store, but Allyson Hannigan was being interviewed with 3 other girls on p.148. Anyways she said, "I like silly crazy dancing to Christina Aguilera. Only one man in the world would love me for that." I'm not sure what she meant or what the context of the interview was.

|Christina's 'Can't Hold Us Down' Brought To Life On MTV Show - Aug 16, 2003|
|Christina Aguilera, Ja Rule, Jennifer Lopez, Craig David, Good Charlotte and other celebrities weigh in on the gender gap and how it affects the differences between the sexes on MTV's 'Fight For Your Rights: Busting The Double Standard'. The show takes an in-depth look at the double standard that exists between guys and girls when it comes to dating and sexual relationships. The first half-hour will deal with the girl's side of the gender gap, exploring what it means to be a lady and how sexuality does not fit into that picture. It will also take a look at how an emerging female sexuality in p...|
|Christina Aguilera invites one of her biggest fans - Jul 25, 2003|
|Christina Aguilera has invited one of her biggest fans, 13-year-old cancer victim Kayla Sansone, backstage when the Justified and Stripped tour hits her hometown of Pittsburgh on July 28. The visit — as well as a $1,000 donation to the Kayla Sansone fund — was coordinated in conjunction with a charity softball tournament. ......|
|Brittany Murphy, Christina Aguilera Turn Out For 'Spun' Premiere - Mar 18, 2003|
|"It's a really racy and gritty film. You either get it or you don't." — Mena Suvari|
Surrounded by celebrities like Christina Aguilera, Rose McGowan, Brittany Murphy and Mena Suvari, perennial sourpuss Mickey Rourke was his usual cranky self at the premiere of "Spun" on Monday. (Click to see photos on the red carpet.)
"I really didn't care for the material, and there was no money," confessed Rourke, who plays a speed dealer nicknamed "The Cook" in "Spun."
"I'm sort of listening to my agent right now, and I never really did that before...
|Christina Shows Up At '8 Mile' Premiere, Praises Eminem - Nov 07, 2002|
|Though Moby, Chris Kirkpatrick and Fred Durst were understandably absent at Eminem's "8 Mile" premiere Wednesday, another of his targets did turn up, belly shirt, big hat, blonde locks and all. (Click for photos from the red carpet.)|
"I hear great things [about Eminem's acting ability], I really do," Christina Aguilera insisted on her way up the red carpet. "I wouldn't be here if I didn't. I heard that the movie's great. I heard it's directed wonderfully. I heard that he's great in it, so I'm really excited."
Part of where X-Tina heard all that was from the seem...
|Christina Aguilera : Platinum Blonde - Oct 01, 1999|
|Most of us were tempted to dismiss Christina Aguilera as just another young, pre-packaged, just-add-water superstar. Sure, she's got "the look." Yeah, she first made her name in that star-making factory, the new "Mickey Mouse Club." But then we really listened to her voice, and we realized that Aguilera has the makings of a true diva, someone who can back up the hype with some world-class pipes. The girl can just flat-out sing.|
Her self-titled debut went straight to number one, topping Puff Daddy's "Forever;" it went gold within a week of release (and as of press...
|TLC and Christina Are Together On Tour - 2000|
|Some wags swore it'd never happen.|
But sure enough, the ladies of TLC have proven them all wrong with a return to the road for the second leg of their "Fanmail" tour, the first go-round of which was plagued by poor promotion, slow sales, and much-ballyhooed intra-group squabbling.
In-fighting that was blown out of proportion by the press, as the trio insisted to MTV News' Chris Connelly when he met up with TLC for an exclusive backstage interview on the second date of their freshly relaunched road trip. T-Boz, Chilli, and Left Eye displayed their sisterly solidarity as only they ca...
|Christina Aguilera's Inner Visions - Sep 14, 2000|
|The teen pop vocalist rediscovers her Latin side on her new CD, 'Mi Reflejo' |
Christina Aguilera seems too small to contain her voice. The 19-year-old singer's bare waist — so thin you'd think it could fit between two parentheses — looks too tiny to support the strong, soulful melismata that flow from her lips. In fact, Aguilera's talent seems to require more space than the teen-pop world can provide. While Mandy Moore and the like go comfortably about the business of churning out plastic pop — and Britney Spears manufactures successful distractions like her striptease at the recent MTV Vid...
|Christina's World - Aug 16, 1999|
|A new teen star has a voice that goes way beyond mere kid stuff |
Sometimes the gods of pop music like to play a little joke. Browsing the aisles of a Times Square record store the other day, Christina Aguilera got quite a surprise. Unrecognized amid the hurly-burly of fellow shoppers stood one of her heroes, Fred Durst, leader of the red-hot rock-hop band Limp Bizkit. Aguilera zeroed in, angling for an autograph, but it was not to be: her quarry slipped into the crowd and scurried away. What Durst didn't know is that the petite blond with the big eyes was not just another fan but one of the m...

|Dreaming Of Genie - May 15, 1999|
|"I get a lot of comparisons these days," says blonde, blue-eyed bombshell Christina Aguilera, as she attempts to explain where she fits into today's musical landscape. "And usually they go in two totally different directions: It's either the Britney [Spears] comparisons from people who just look at things on the surface, or I get compared to people like Mariah Carey, which is amazing, and I think that comes from [the ones] who are more aware of my vocal abilities and what I can really do." |
Since the success of her seductive single "Genie In A Bottle" has made Ch...

|Kelly: "Christina Aguilera is one of the most disgusting human beings in the world."|
The Punch: Kelly O "hocked several lugies"on Christina's Bentley while the two were recording at the same studio because "she's not very nice." Mom Sharon says Kelly also "put boogers on all the handles." That is beyond dirrty - that's nsty! Another jab: "Christina is despicable for so many reasons. She has an amazing voice, but that doesn't change the fact that she's one of the world biggest cu**s."
The Counter Punch: "Personally, I think Kelly has a cr...

It wasn't really planned that way... but I don't know... The next single is called "Fighter"! [laughs] But you know, I think it's good to keep it simple and straight to the point.

|Smash Hits's "Beautiful" Review - Feb 2003|
|In just three short years, Christina Aguilera has gone from a rather cute pop princess to a pierced, tattooed, dreadlocked, burn-bearing walking fashion disaster. But despite her progressively, erm, interesting get-up, one thing has remained constant- the strength of Christina's voice which she uses to full effect on this nicely restrained ballad.|
Resisting the whooping and vocal gymnastics we're used to hearing. Christina interprets "Beautiful" and gives it a whole lot of meaning with her heartfelt delivery. Not surprisingly, this is penned by Linda Perry, the ex-4 Non Blondes singe...
|Christina on where is stuffier, the UK or the USA - Feb 2003|
|Christina on where is stuffier, the UK or the USA:|
Well, the UK has actually been a little bit more open-minded than the States. The song "Dirrty" has done pretty well there. I think it has more to do with the person. I haven't quite figured that one out yet... who's stuffier. but the UK is definitely received the song better. It was really really shocking for a lot of people in the States but they will get it. They will understand, the more interviews and the more times they see me talk, that this is just me and this is being 22. It's kind of surprising, too, just because I came ou...
|Cleo "Stripped" Review - Jan 2003|
|She's back and much dirrtier than before. Despite the controversy suround her recent video for "Dirrty", this album goes to show that Aguilera truly posseses a great voice and superb talent. this new "rockier" edge that laces her music sees the pop princess trying on new music styles and adapting to them quite well, too. A track to look out for is "Loving Me 4 Me", a mellow hypnotic tune that is truly fantastic, and will likely surprise you with yet another facet to Aguilera's talent. Other noteworthy tracks including "Impossible" where alicia keys backs...|
|Christina Aguilera Shows Off Her Natural Beauty - Apr 28, 2003|
|Pop megastar Christina Aguilera has had a radical change of image, shedding her trademark platinum locks for a new dark look.|
The 22-year-old, who was recently voted the world's most desirable woman, stunned waiting fans when she turned up for an award ceremony in Hollywood with a new brunette coiffeur.
Wearing noticeably less make-up than normal, she seems to have swapped her glamorous image for a more natural beauty. The singer hasn't completely changed her ways, however, as her white corset dress was characteristically raunchy.
While brunette is Christina's natural colour, her sudden c...

|Christina Aguilera has told how she still suffers panic attacks after being beaten by her father when she was a child.|
The singer says US Army sergeant Fausto Aguilera put her entire family through mental hell.
She told US Weekly that her mother, Shelly Kearns, suffered the brunt of his temper when they lived together in Japan, where he was stationed.
Ms Kearns, 42, said domestic violence was a regular occurrence and she was so terrified she once slept with the anti-attack spray Mace under her pillow.
On one occasion she returned home to find four-year-old Christina with blood dripping fro...
|Christina AguileraL Not Your Puppet - Feb 28, 2002|
|"I have a lot of aggression in me that needs to come out in a not-very-precise or articulate way," says the petite blonde in the pink sleeveless sweater. "Like, there's one track where I'm screaming at the top of my lungs, kind of like Courtney Love. It's crazy."|
Pushing up her Lil' Kim shades, Christina Aguilera sits back in her chair inside an L.A. recording studio. She adjusts the collection of slender gold chains around her neck; a Playboy bunny logo charm dangles off one, while another bears a flashy b-girl nameplate reading "X-tina," her nickname.

|Nelly, Aguilera, Blink-182 Raise VMA Roof With Live Sets.|
The final hour of the 2000 Video Music Awards was all about the performers reaching out to those in the audience, with some in the crowd deciding to reach back.
While his performance didn't exactly fill up the stage, Nelly more than admirably filled the slot originally intended for DMX as he took his St. Lou-loving rhymes out into the orchestra pit of the Radio City Music Hall.
Nelly's baggy pants threatened to drop around his ankles during the call-and-response rhymes of "Country Grammar," but the rapper managed to keep hi...
|Aguilera Postpones Shows, Rests For Latin Grammys - Sep 12, 2000|
|After wowing audiences with her performance at last week's MTV Video Music Awards, singer Christina Aguilera was forced to pull the plug on a show this past Saturday in Boston and another show in Virginia Beach, Virginia, on Monday because of problems with her voice.|
According to a message posted on the teen singer's official Web site after the Boston date was nixed, Aguilera "intends to rest her voice further over the next few days," a decision that eventually led to the Virginia show's cancellation as well.
Aguilera is hoping to reschedule the two concerts, although makeup dates ...
|Limp's Durst Explains Aguilera Duet - Oct 03, 2000|
|It was a performance designed to provoke, but even those behind the union of Fred Durst and Christina Aguilera at last month's MTV Video Music Awards had to be taken aback at the reactions the onstage duet inspired.|
While some saw the move as a step toward unity in the pop world, many others (including Filter frontman Richard Patrick) viewed the Limp Bizkit singer's stage time with Aguilera as a major embarrassment to the rock world.
"Fred getting onstage with Christina Aguilera embarrassed us all," Patrick told MTV News in the wake of the performance (see "Family Values To Si...

|Ricky In Hot Pursuit Of Christina In New Video - Jan 11, 2001|
|Besides topping the charts, Ricky Martin and Fred Durst have something else in common — neither can catch Christina Aguilera.|
Martin plays a game of cat-and-mouse with the sultry songstress in the video for their dance version of his song, "Nobody Wants to Be Lonely." The ex-Mouseketeer and the former Menudo member pursue each other in the clip, but never quite connect.
"Nobody Wants to Be Lonely" appears as a solo ballad on Martin's Sound Loaded album. He and Aguilera re-recorded the song as a dance duet in Las Vegas in December; the number arrived at radio stations on T...
|MTV News Now: "When Sex Goes Pop: Not That Innocent" - Dec 11, 2000|
|Eager to keep pace with an increasingly sexualized culture, young female pop stars have amped up their raciness with bare skin and bold moves in live performances and videos that delight some and shock others.|
Is this a death knell for the unspoiled innocence of American youth, or a case of young women grabbing the power that the free expression of their sensuality provides them? Is the heat generated by Britney, Beyoncé and Christina a good thing or a bad thing? And do booty videos celebrate women ... or exploit them? What do you think? You Tell Us!

Aguilera filed suit against her former manager, Steven Kurtz, on Friday in Los Angeles claiming fraud and breach of fiduciary duty.

Aguilera wants to void her contract with Kurtz, and has recently signed on with Don Henley's longtime manager, Irving Azoff.

Other artists, such as 'NSYNC, are a bit more cutthroat when it comes to VMA night. Apparently, despite...

|Sonicnet Music News|
On her upcoming Spanish-language album, "Mi Reflejo," Christina Aguilera delves into her Latin roots, covering a traditional tune alongside Spanish versions of her multiplatinum hits.
"This is very much a Latin-sounding record, but vocally, she does bring her more R&B sound to it," Aguilera's manager, Steven Kurtz, said. "I don't think there's anyone singing in Spanish the way Christina does it."
The album, due September 12, will feature Spanish-sung versions of five songs from her 1999 self-titled debut album, with five originals and on...

|They really need to get it together.|
Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera are two of the most unfocused acts in pop right now. Their sound, their look, their kiss-my-you-know-what attitude - all so embarrassingly contrived. As the two try on different guises, we wait, hoping that in the midst of their search they find something that resembles authenticity - or better yet, the former Mouseketeers learn to just embrace whatever exists behind the masks.
But that could take a while. "JT" and "Xtina," whose much-ballyhooed summer tour stops at MCI on Tuesday, have been on ...
