|RCA's Christina Aguilera, A Rising Star with a Powerhouse Voice - Aug 1999|
|With the Top 20 A/C Hit "Reflection" from the Disney animation film "Mulan" already under her belt, Christina Aguilera's knockout voice is quickly getting the attention of both fans and critics alike. While her outstanding vocal ability has been compared to Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, Aguilera continues to define and showcase her powerful voice on her recently released self-titled debut album for RCA Records. The first single, "Genie In A Bottle," entered Billboard's Hot 100 Singles chart at Number 12 with multi-format airplay quickly climbing across the U.S...|
|Sexy Rex Wrecks Britney & Christina's Friendship - Aug 06, 2003|
|Here's one fight for which I'd pay more than the exaggerated price of a watered-down nightclub cocktail: Christina Aguilera vs. Britney Spears.|
Couldn't happen, you say? Think again. The two popsters came into a Miami Beach club as best friends -- but Spears left an hour later after a long argument with Aguilera. I'm told they were fighting over oh-so-pretty actor Simon Rex.
"The music was too loud to hear them," says an eyewitness. "But it looked pretty serious. There was a lot of finger-pointing and flailing arms. A couple of beefy guys were standing by in case they needed t...
|Cyndi Lauper Interviews Christina Aguilera - Jul 19, 2003|
|Cyndi Lauper interviewed Christina Aguilera for Interview magazine. Asked about how she is able to sing and dance around on stage, Aguilera responded, "Well, to me, the choreography is secondary to the music. The other night I came offstage and was like, 'I don't care if I missed a dance step, but my voice was weak!' This show is very different from what you might've envisioned having seen [the video for] 'Genie in a Bottle' and all that choreographed stuff from the last album. This show is theatrical, and it's about getting into a character and getting to play someone who's vulnerable in...|

|Piping Up - Jul 03, 2003|
|Songbird Christina Aguilera is causing a ruckus in her new Beverly Hills neighborhood -- and her neighbors love it. When she's in town, Christina keeps her pipes in tiptop shape by doing vocal exercises late at night. I asked one of her neighbors if it bothered them. "Not at all," she said. "We open our French doors and listen. It's like a free concert in our bedroom!"...|
|What A Girl Wants - Jun 02, 2003|
|Apparently Christina Aguilera thinks she's a bigger star than Tom Cruise, J.Lo and Ben Affleck. When she and two girlfriends were dining at The Ivy in L.A., a favorite eatery among celebs, she insisted that her patio table be roped off from the rest of the restaurant. The Genie in The Bottle star's demand was granted....|
|Covergirl - Feb 20, 2003|
|Looks like it's dawning on Christina Aguilera that her many tattoos could blot out dreams of an acting career. The pop diva was spotted at Rexall Drugs in L.A. talking about an audition and trying on industrial-strength makeup to cover her tats. We hear Home Depot is having a sale on spackle....|
|The Dish - Feb 11, 2003|
|The new reigning queen of raunch, CHRISTINA AGUILERA, has heeded warnings to get her act together. She's hired acclaimed British hypnotist PAUL MCKENNA to help her drink in moderation. No one's saying she has a problem, mind you. But just in case, Paul's now on her payroll....|
|Aguilera Critical Of J.Lo's Political Punt - Jun 15, 2003|
|In her interview with Nylon magazine, Christina Aguilera was critical of an Jennifer Lopez's non-view on the war in Iraq. "I just read this article where they asked her, 'So what are your views on the war?' And she said, 'Oh, I don’t really think about that kind of stuff. I leave it up to him’—and she points to [her fiance Ben Affleck]," Aguilera said, rolling her eyes. "I understand if you say, ‘I’d rather keep my opinions to myself,' but to admit you don’t have any opinion of what’s going on in your country and the world? I was just like, wow. So what, I’m just here to look pr...|

|POP TART AVRIL LAVIGNE IS NOT SO INNOCENT - Feb 05, 2003|
|Watch out, Britney! Move over, Christina! There's a new wild woman in the 'hood. Her name's Avril Lavigne. And don't you forget it!|
We, the public, have watched virginal Britney Spears evolve over the past couple years from a supposed virgin to someone who isn't averse to making out with a boy, or two, and chugging an apple martini, or two.
Then came Christina Aguilera. The singer of Genie in a Bottle never went through the virginal stage, but headed straight for the partying stage.
Until recently, 18-year-old Lavigne stood apart from her post-pubescent pop-tart contemporaries. Even though ...
|Timberlake Makes Smoother Transition Than Aguilera - Jul 25, 2003|
|Joshua Klein of the Chicago Tribune reviewed the Justified & Stripped tour stop at the Allstate Arena on Tuesday (July 22). Klein says Christina Aguilera's "voice, not to mention the charisma-deficient singer herself, was lost amid all the mechanical thrills." As for *NSYNC star Justin Timberlake, Klein says the singer "has made a much smoother transition to maturity... Timberlake had eight dancers as well, but unlike Aguilera, he didn't seem lost without them."...|
|What made Britney cry? - Feb 07, 2003|
|POP princess Britney Spears was all geared up to sing Baby One More Time with former boyfriend Justin Timberlake - until she left his 22nd birthday party in tears.|
Britney, 21, wasn't the only beautiful babe invited to the Jan. 31 bash at Dublin's Irish Whiskey Pub on Sunset Boulevard in L.A. Dirrty gal Christina Aguilera, Charmed star Alyssa Milano and American Pie party animal Tara Reid were among the 200 revelers in attendance.
But love rivals Christina, Alyssa, Tara and their bodyguards made such a tight circle around Justin that Britney couldn't get near him, say eyewitnesses. And that'...
|Christina Out Of Control - Jan 09, 2003|
|Uncle pleads with boozing pop diva to get help - fast |
CHRISTINA AGUILERA'S worried uncle is begging her to stop partying, get help and sober up - before it's too late.
"I think she's out of control!" declares the 22-year-old pop diva's loving uncle, Johann Aguilera, after hearing news stories about her wild antics. "I can't reach her, but maybe Star can get a message to her. I'm afraid for her. This is my lovely little niece, who was a caring, good girl. But she's acting crazy. Christina, we love you. Get some help, please, for your sake and your family's sake!"
|British TV To Christina: Cover Up Or Go Home! - Jan 08, 2003|
|Christina Aguilera has been told by TV execs in the UK that she needs to tone it down, or else.|
The last time Aguilera appeared on British television, she caused quite a stir in her outfit -- a bikini top, chaps and teeny-tiny bottoms with the word NASTY across the cheeks. According to reports, hundreds of viewers complained, causing an investigation by the Independent Television Commission (ITC).
"We are always keen to have Christina on the show but the skimpy knickers and bottom have been banned," says a source at the show CD:UK. "Her last performance caused such an uproar t...
|Cold as Nice - Dec 19, 2002|
|Christina Aguilera's handsome new dark-haired boyfriend is nothing to sneeze at, but you'd never know it by the way she was acting. The singer had a raging cold and phlegmy cough when they dined recently at the Hotel Bel-Air, and pulled out multiple tissues to blow her nose. But that didn't stop the two from smooching and cuddling throughout the meal....|
|On Guard - Jan 14, 2003|
|Christina Aguilera arrived with half a dozen bodyguards for a late-night get together at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in L.A., thrown by Sopranos star Drea De Matteo. Christina's burly guys scoped out the place before Christina entered and made sure Drea had ingredients for Sex on the Beach, Christina's favorite cocktail. When Drea told the burly guys she "wasn't a bartender" the saucy singer bought her drinks at the hotel bar and brought them in. The bodyguards' last assignment: carrying out a very woozy Christina at 4 a.m....|
|Christina Aguilera: Empowered By Piercing - Nov 12, 2002|
|In a recent interview, Christina Aguilera reveals the reason behind her prolific piercings.|
In total, she has 11 piercings ranging from the most common of places, her ears, to some not-so public places on her body.
"If I was having a bad day, or if something was really getting me down -- boy troubles, whatever -- I wanted to go out and get a new piercing," she says in the interview.
"It was definitely a release for me. Something that made me feel a little more strong or empowered. Because it was something that had to do with me and no one else."...
|Christina Aguilera's Anguish - Nov 05, 2002|
|Pop superstar's new song accuses dad of beating her and strangling her mom |
CHRISTINA AGUILERA says she's emotionally scarred from abuse at her father's hands, and she's purging the pain in the song I'm Okay on her new disc, Stripped.
Christina, 21, claims her father, ex-Army sergeant Fausto Aguilera, had a hair-trigger temper that he took out on her and her mother, Shelly Kearns. Christina sings about a fight in which he once tried to strangle her mom with an army jacket.
"The track is about my past and my father and that whole situation," she explains. "It was very hard to ...
|Bronzed Beauties - Nov 01, 2002|
|Attention fans! The latest hangout to spot stars at is not a bar or restaurant - it's the Uvasun tanning center in West Hollywood. Tanning beds are passé among the health-conscious. The latest craze is the center's safe airbrush spray-tan called Mystic Tan. Celebs like Jessica Simpson, Christina Aguilera and Paula Abdul are regulars. But you'll have to look closely or you might not recognize the stars in the waiting room - no makeup is allowed!...|
|What This Girl Wants - Aug 27, 2002|
|Christina Aguilera has beaten her own record for diva-ness. Instead of waiting on a long line for the ladies' room at a Hollywood party, the singer marched up to the attendant and announced: "I'm sick - I have to cut in line!" The worker protested, but Lady Marmalade and her pals butted ahead anyway and monopolized the locked facility for 20 minutes. Wait, it gets worse. On her way out, she snapped at the attendant: "You were SO rude!" At least when Christina had to use the bathroom again later, she apologized and handed the attendant a $100 tip....|

|What A Guy Wants - Dec 06, 2001|
|Pop tart Christina Aguilera was steaming at the opening of the Living Room Downtown, an after-hours club in Miami.|
From the look of things, Christina's dancer boyfriend, Jorge Santos, was more interested in the club's genetically blessed eye candy than he was with the visibly ticked-off songbird.
Christina pouted and sulked through the entire evening....
|Christina Rocked by Sex Video - Jan 10, 2002|
|SEXY songbird Christina Aguilera is furious about an X-rated porno videotape that is being offered for sale around Tinseltown. |
POP TART: Christina's Lady Marmalade performance at the MTV music awards is mild compared to the antics on an X-rated video.
Sources tell Star that an L.A. based hustler is showing friends the tape and bragging that it contains a racy sex scene between him and the blonde diva!
Although Aguilera's spokesman tells Star that no "sex tape" exists, pals close to the pop princess say that What a Girl really Wants is to nip this scandal in the bud - fast.
|Poop Princess - Apr 10, 2002|
|Pop singer Christina Aguilera was browsing in the lingerie department at Neiman Marcus in the company of her terrier-mix dog. Suddenly Christina wrinkled up her nose and looked down to see that her pooch had "left a little present" on the carpet. She shrieked and dug in her purse to find paper to clean it up. When she couldn't find any, she ran and got tissue paper from the gift wrap desk. The star then bent down, scooped the poop up and made a hasty getaway, apologizing as she went....|
|Hard Partying Christina Banned From L.A. Hotel - Jun 11, 2002|
|Pint-size songbird Christina Aguilera sure packs some partying punch. And the folks at the Sunset Strip's chichi Standard hotel in West Hollywood, Calif., know that all too well.|
"TAKE IT SOMEWHERE ELSE!" Hotel managers asked Christina to leave.
Early last month, they actually had to cork the little genie back in her bottle by banning Aguilera and her extensive entourage from there - permanently.
"A truckload of cash wouldn't get her into a suite," a hotel insider tells Confidential. "She is out."
So what happened? Too much of everything! Troubles began earl...
|Christina Says, Leave The Genie In The Bottle - Please! - May 23, 2001|
|Here's what the girl wants. She wants her tapes back and she's willing to go to federal court to get them. |
Christina Aguilera recorded a demo disc waaaaay before she hit the big time with Genie in a Bottle. Now she's going to fight to prevent the release of the disc, but it may be too late.
The lawsuit, which names producers Robert Alleca and Michael Brown, Warlock Records, JFB Music and the Platinum Recording Group, charges improper use of Christina's name, likeness, voice and the breach of an implied contract to keep the demo - just that - a demo.
But, whether it's good or bad, Amazon.co...
|Clothes Call! - May 18, 2001|
|Poor Christina Aguilera nearly fainted when bells rang as she exited Abercrombie & Fitch at Century City mall in L.A., and a security guard pulled her aside. She rummaged around, but couldn't find the receipt for her purchases.|
The middle-aged guard, who had no idea who she was, marched the potential thief back into the store. How embarrassing!
The cashier DID know who Christina was and realized he was so excited he had forgotten to remove one of her security tags. He apologized profusely, and Christina was a good sport and autographed a store catalog for the nervous cashier....
|CHRISTINA AGUILERA: I'M NO VIRGIN - May 17, 2001|
|Christina Aguilera is no virgin -- and proud of it!|
Unlike her former Mickey Mouse Club counterparts, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, Aguilera relishes her sexuality and doesn't care who knows it.
"I'm a proud, sexual girl -- a woman, actually," she says. "All this do-not-touch nonsense is not me. I'm no virgin, I'm all for female sexuality and taking the sexual power away from the guys. They've had it for way too long."
Aguilera also denies reports that she is difficult, volatile and diva-like.
"I'm not a spoiled brat or diva like they say I am. I keep heari...
|Christina To Hawk Coca-Cola - Mar 21, 2001|
|Could Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears have been separated at birth? The two teen superstars have been following eerily similar career tracks since their days in the Mickey Mouse Club.|
Britney just debuted her Pepsi ad during Sunday's Oscar ceremony, and now it's been announced that rival Christina will be the face of (what else?) Coke beginning in May.
The "Come On Over, Baby" singer will also be part of a summer promotion for the soft-drink giant, in which winners will have a shot at meeting the diva-in-training and hanging out with her at a video shoot.

|Oops! They're At It again -- Christina Disses Britney - May 08, 2002|
|The battle of the bubble-gum babes took on a nasty new flavor recently when Christina Aguilera blasted archrival Britney Spears as "teenybopper trash" - something that got Britney's thong into a huge knot. |
"They just hate each other," says one source close to the Hollywood teen crowd. "Christina has always disliked Britney's goody-two-shoes image, and Britney is jealous that the critics like Christina's talent better."
Virginal Spears, 20, and bottle-blonde Lady Marmalade vixen Aguilera, 21, had both agreed to attend a party last month for a mutual friend at th...
|What A Girl Wants - Oct 17, 2000|
|Christina Aguilera, 19, apparently isn't used to hearing the word no. |
She made a late-night dash into a West Hollywood store to stock up on party supplies and piled up potato chips, a bottle of expensive champagne, beer and cigarettes on the counter.
The cashier recognized the underage pop star with blue streaks in her hair and reminded her she had to be 21 to purchase liquor. Christina pleaded that the items were for an adult pal waiting in the car, but the clerk refused to budge.
Christina stormed out, but returned in a few minutes with her legal-age pal to complete the transaction....
|Christina Romancing One Of Her Dancers - Sep 27, 2000|
|GENIE in a Bottle singer Christina Aguilera's secret is out -- she's carrying on a steamy love affair with a member of her touring group.|
Star has learned that Christina, 19, is dating dancer Jorge Santos, 24, a handsome Brooklyn, N.Y., native.
"She likes having a behind-the-scenes love affair with him,"says a friend. "She didn't even tell her mother when her tour recently wound its way through her hometown of Pittsburgh, Pa.
"Christina introduced her mom to Jorge, but said nothing about them being a couple."
But those close to the singer sa...
|Eminem's Obsession With Sexy Christina Aguilera - Sep 14, 2000|
|WILD MAN rapper Eminem lusted after teen singing sensation Christina Aguilera until she spurned his sleazy advances - then he turned around and savaged her in song, says his former bodyguard.|

|Genie In A Paint Can - Jan 01, 2001|
|Teen singing sensation Christina Aguilera was thrilled when her backup dancer boyfriend, Jorge Santos, volunteered to paint her West Hollywood apartment.|
But after a few weeks of breathing in paint fumes, she feared Jorge had bitten off more than he could chew.
So she came up with the perfect plan -- she whisked her honey off to the Argyle Hotel on Sunset Strip and hired a professional painter to finish the job while they enjoyed a romantic weekend....
|Who are these girls? - Jul 03, 2003|

Aguilera called for the manager and tried to lecture him about the environmental dangers of Styrofoam, but since the guy barely spoke English, he had no idea what she was trying to stay. Frustrated, Christina left without her leftovers....|
