|The Pop Wars? - Apr 21, 2001|
|Just one month after pop sensation Britney Spears announced a massive sponsorship deal with Pepsi, fellow teen diva Christina Aguilera (pictured) has signed on the dotted line with rival soft drink maker Coca Cola. According to Worldpop.com, Aguilera's contract is worth a whopping $70 million (U.S.), and will follow up on her previous spots in Latin America with a full-out U.S. campaign this summer.|
Aguilera, 20, and Spears, 19, got their start together on "The New Mickey Mouse Club" back in 1992. Since 1999, they've both parlayed their perky personalities and revealing dress sense ...
|Christina's Court Fight - Oct 18, 2000|
|This girl sure knows what she wants: A manager she can trust! |
Christina Aguilera, the bubblegum pop star of the moment, is suing her ex-manager, Steven E. Kurtz of Marquee Management, for exercising "improper, undue and inappropriate influence" over her personal and professional activities.
The genie says Kurtz took more than his fair share of her ample profits.
In the Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit, which was filed last Friday, Aguilera claims Kurtz convinced the then-17-year-old ex-Mouseketeer to sign an agreement that made Kurtz her personal manager and entitled him to a m...
|Christina Aguilera Gives Crowd What It Wants - Jul 02, 2000|
|Singer impresses Summerfest audience with vocal abilities. |
Singer Christina Aguilera commanded the stage at the Marcus Amphitheater on Saturday night with the showmanship of a seasoned pro.
But the minute she spoke to the crowd, she sounded like she could have been any one of the thousands of teenage girls in the audience.
"God, you guys, this is my first headlining tour," Aguilera, 19, told the audience of 17,000, in the same tone she used when accepting her Best New Artist Grammy in March.
Saturday's show — part of Milwaukee's 10-day Summerfest music festival — was the kickoff...
|Christina Aguilera Plans Endless Summer - May 18, 2000|
|Pop singer Christina Aguilera, who was honored with this year's Grammy for Best New Artist, has tacked on 12 shows to 41 planned concerts, extending her summer tour into October.|
Previously planning to wrap with a Sept. 25 show in West Palm Beach, Fla., Aguilera will now continue deeper into the fall, performing in New Orleans, Dallas, Salt Lake City, Portland, Ore., and Southern California before finishing Oct. 15 in Phoenix.
The singer, who had a runaway hit last year with "Genie in a Bottle" (RealAudio excerpt), has a busy summer ahead of her. After a few shows in late May and J...
|Christina Aguilera Gets Voice Back In Time For Tour - 2000|
|And other than being "nervous" about appearing on the MTV Video Music Awards show Thursday (Sept. 7), Christina Aguilera was just fine during her Wednesday concert in front of 17,000 at the PNC Bank Arts Center — her first since doctors ordered her to rest her singing voice.|
"I'm so nervous," Aguilera told the audience, referring to her MTV awards show appearance. "[But] I know I wouldn't be there performing without you guys." (Sonicnet.com's parent company, Viacom, also owns MTV.)
Aguilera told the audience — made up largely of glow-stick waving girls — that sh...
|Who's Next? Top 40's Next Wave - Apr 18, 1999|
|Glancing at a young artist's resume in these ironic times, it seems almost too easy to dismiss an entry entitled "The New Mickey Mouse Club" as somehow frivolous; not a first or even seventh choice to seriously boost one's budding career. Not so fast. In the company of Britney Spears, Felicity actress Keri Russell and both Justin and JC from N Sync, you have to stop and wonder what sort of cosmic forces are at work here. Now, get a bigger piece of paper and add the name Christina Aguilera, another "Mouse" vet who made her initial impact felt last year when she sang "Re...|
|Motorola and PTN Media reach out to entertainment market with Christina Aguilera - Apr 23, 2002|
|Motorola (NYSE: MOT) and PTN Media (OTC: PTNM) today announced a Christina Aguilera faceplate and battery cover set for Motorola i50sx mobile phones. Additionally, subscribers will be able to receive daily text messages on subjects ranging from music to fashion, giving fans a way to keep in touch with the star. |

|SIX FLAGS OVER GEORGIA WANTS TO SEND YOU TO SEE A CONCERT THAT CAN'T BE MISSED! - Jun 20, 2003|
|Atlanta, Ga. - Win tickets at Six Flags Over Georgia to see some of the hottest artists this summer, Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera. You may recognize Justin Timberlake from the group 'N Sync and Christina Aguilera from her pop hits. Timberlake and Aguilera are on tour and will perform at Phillips Arena Saturday, July 12.|

|Area Critic Admits New Christina Album "Better Than He Expected." - Nov 16, 2002|
|Ok, let's get one thing straight from the start - Christina Aguilera looks like an all-out tramp in her video for "Dirrty." It's a horrible song, being promoted by an even more horrible video. The bright side, however, is "Dirrty" is absolutely nothing like the rest of Chrstina's new album, Stripped. |
It kind of makes sense though, for her to start out promoting her new album with a pure pop nugget. After all, that's where her audience is; she was born out of the teen-pop phenomenon of the late 90s and it'd be foolish to ignore her pre-established fanbase. Sure, "Dirr...
|Pop's Dirrty Little Secret-Christina Aguilera - Jan 23, 2003|
|It seems incorrect to place Christina Aguilera in the pop category. For the sake of argument, she is one that can only be classified as extraordinary. When people think of Aguilera, they think of the dirty, ex-genie in a bottle that took the world by storm in 1999. |
With her Latin background and hip-hop influences, young little X-tina has revamped the music industry showing the world just how simutaneously beautiful and strong all women can be. Raised from a young abused and rejected child to an independent charismatic woman, Aguilera has a light that will forever shine.
Boldly going where ...
|PEOPLE: Justin, Christina postpone Xcel show - Aug 15, 2003|
|The Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera "Justified and Stripped" tour date, originally set for Xcel Energy Center on Aug. 24, has been postponed until 7:30 p.m. Sept. 2. All remaining dates of the "Justified and Stripped" tour have been postponed to accommodate the rebuilding of the show's production. The delays were needed to restore the show's extensive production to its original magnitude.|
On Saturday afternoon, three stagehands were injured when a lighting grid above the stage at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall collapsed.
Refunds will be given at the place of purc...
|CD Review: Christina Aguilera's 'Stripped' - Oct 31, 2002|
|It's hard to take Christina Aguilera seriously these days. The former teen queen's new single "Dirrty," from her album "Stripped," comes off like a desperate bid for musical relevance, with its shrill hip-hop groove and a guest spot from rapper Redman. And lately, the barely clad star looks like she stepped out of HBO's "Hookers at the Point."|
This perception is what makes "Stripped" such a complex surprise. Far from being a one-note come-on, the album is a vulnerable exploration of one young woman's struggle to understand her sexuality. She's not a tea...
|Aguilera releases Spanish album - Sep 2000|
|Christina Aguilera's moves on stage don't require translation. But the pop singer wants to make sure her Spanish-language fans understand the lyrics. Aguilera this week released a Spanish-language album, 'Mi Reflejo,' that includes five translated versions of songs from her debut album and six new songs, including a duet with Latin pop star Luis Fonsi. 'This will make my grandparents proud,' she said. Aguilera's father is from Ecuador, and her U.S.-born mother worked as a Spanish translator. Aguilera, born and raised in the United States, says she spoke Spanish at home for the first five years...|
|A True Talent, in English and Spanish - Sep 2000|
|One can never accuse singer Christina Aguilera of playing it safe. After all, she's decided to follow up her eponymous 1999 multiplatinum debut disc with "Mi Reflejo," an all- Spanish-language album on RCA Records. The result is pure pop pleasure.|
Five of the album's songs are Spanish re-recordings of previous Aguilera hits.
So "Genie in a Bottle" becomes "Genio Atrapado," "I Turn to You" is now "Por Siempre Tu," "Come On Over" is "Ven Conmigo" and "What a Girl Wants" mutates into "Una Mujer." But Aguil...
|Christina Aguilera 'Mi Reflejo' - Sep 2000|
|Like many Latin artists who have crossed into the English market, Christina Aguilera's foray into Spanish has yielded a mostly mainstream pop album with Latin inflections. This is to be expected on a disc that includes six adaptations of previous Aguilera hits in English, including 'Genio Atrapado' ('Genie in a Bottle').|
What makes Aguilera's effort commendable is not the occasional salsa beat or the use of acoustic guitars now heard in every album by a Latin artist. Instead, Aguilera breaks rank by virtue of her magnificent voice and by refusing to leave behind her R&B inflections, which...
|'Mi Reflejo' - Sep 2000|
|Much to the delight of Grandma Aguilera, pretty young Christina acknowledges her Ecuadorian heritage with a spicy dance-floor friendly disc totally in Spanish. Considering Miss Aguilera doesn't speak the language, the recording is an impressive accomplishment. Ballads and even her peppy fan-faves like "Genie In a Bottle," "What A Girl Wants" and "Come On Over" ("Genio Atrapado," "Una Mujer" and "Ven Conmigo" respectively) translate flawlessly.|
This album will certainly be a major contender at next year's Latin Grammys since no other ...
|Christina's Latin CD 'Mi Reflejo' - Sep 2000|
|In 1999, Spanish-speaking Latin pop stars like Ricky Martin, Marc Anthony, and Enrique Iglesias showed they could live la vida just as loca in English. Now, teen R&B diva Christina Aguilera flips the script back with her Spanish-language album, 'Mi Reflejo.' This isn't just another Boyz II Men en espanol. Aguilera exquisitely turns out her inner Ecuadorian and transcends her suburban Pittsburgh origins with remarkably authentic Latin feeling.|
'Mi Reflejo' features the obligatory remakes of Aguilera hits like 'Come On Over,' 'I Turn To You,' and 'Genie In A Bottle,' but the songs seem to m...
|Christina Aguilera Prepares Spanish Debut - Aug 17, 2000|
|There was a time when Christina Aguilera's main asset was her voice, a strong, supple instrument mature and dynamic beyond her teen years.|
These days, Aguilera -- who in February won the Grammy for best new artist -- has found an equally valuable asset in her surname, the stamp of authenticity her label is banking on to make her Spanish-language debut a success.
At a time of intense crossover from the Latin market to the English-speaking world, "Mi Reflejo," marks her as one of few mainstream pop superstars to release an entire album in Spanish. Moreover, while crossovers in either...
|Polished Aguilera gives fans what they want and more - Oct 20, 2000|
|During a three-hour screamfest Thursday night at KeyArena, some of Christina Aguilera's finest moments were nearly drowned out by adolescent exuberance. Wave after wave of piercing screams provided a constant sonic backdrop to Aguilera's often exquisite vocals. But with the firepower of an arena-rock sound system behind her, the blond teenage singing star managed to keep the upper hand. She was cool, confident and totally in control.|
Aguilera's first headlining Seattle show since the release last year of her blockbuster debut album was a colorfully staged and elaborately choreographed perform...
|It's 'All Right Now' for Aguilera - Oct 04, 2000|
|Unlike some of the other teen performers of pop, there was nothing gimmicky about Christina Aguilera's first headlining tour that pulled into the Universal Amphitheatre on Wednesday.|
After all, who needs cutesy lines, choreographed dance moves or silly skits when you're a 19-year-old with one of the biggest and most distinct voices in the industry?
Certainly not Aguilera.
All anyone had to do was be there for the start of her concert, which was signaled by the moaning line from "Genie in a Bottle." Aguilera, dressed in white from head to toe, piped out the opening lines with all t...
|This teen pop diva keeps it real - Sep 23, 2000|
|OK, ninth-graders. Today's theme, compare and contrast the September T.D. Waterhouse concerts by dueling teen divas Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera in 500 words or less.|
Of course, it's like comparing Gouda with Cheez Whiz. Britney was all over-choreographed, pre-packaged, and tape-recorded. Christina, on the other hand, is the real deal.
Real stage banter. Real stage presence. Heck, real singing. What a relief to hear a bubble-gummer with real pipes tear into her tunes, letting six back-up dancers do the heavy lifting and leaving the tape recording to NBC's Olympics coverage.
|Aguilera satisfies fans at State Fair of Texas - Sep 02, 2000|
|The concert season at this year's State Fair of Texas opened quite impressively with a femme-centered double bill starring Christina Aguilera and Destiny's Child, who performed Saturday afternoon.|
Houston trio Destiny's Child did a quick set early in the afternoon. By the time Ms. Aguilera hit the stage at 5:30 pm, the place was packed, with a crowd so large as to be uncountable thousands of people at the very least, swarming around the stage. Kids climbed atop anything that was climbable, whether it be an ATM machine, picnic table or tiny-limbed tree. Catching sight of the stage itself was d...
|Aguilera wows them with awe-inspiring vocals - Jul 27, 2000|
|Last Monday, exactly a day before Christina Aguilera's debut album was certified seven-times platinum, Britney Spears, a ghost from Aguilera's Mouseketeers days, drew a crowd of more than 23,000 to a sold-out Post-Gazette Pavilion.|
Last night, Aguilera, having beaten Spears on Grammy night to walk away with best new artist honors, pulled in half that many fans, despite the fact that a portion of the lawn was sold as "buy one, get one free."
And in her own back yard.
As the Battle of the Mouseketeases rages on, with Britney's latest effort breaking records every day, it's clear tha...
|Aguilera skirts the Mistakes of Pop Artists - Aug 25, 2000|
|The screams, the green glow sticks, the teen girls who haven't quite figured out how to gracefully operate a pair of high heels -- it sure felt like another bubblegum pop show Thursday night.|
But with Christina Aguilera onstage at Pine Knob, it certainly didn't sound like one. By the time the 19-year-old rookie star had wrapped up her 70-minute set, she had pushed herself well out of today's crowded pop pack, proving she's less a successor to flimsy acts like Britney Spears than to enduring voices like Mariah Carey.
A capacity crowd of 15,200 was on hand as Aguilera opened her set with the u...
|Aguilera shows fans what a girl wants - Aug 19, 2000|
|She's no genie in a bottle but Christina Aguilera definitely knows how to rub her Kentucky fans the right way.|
Hundreds of screaming pubescent teens -- many dressed in the singer's trademark tight synthetic leather pants and midriff-baring halter tops -- filled Freedom Hall last night for an unforgettable yet entertaining concert.
The diva-in-training opened her first headline concert tour, sponsored by powerhouses Sears and Levis, with her first No. 1 hit single, "Genie In a Bottle."
Wearing a tight white leather cape-like outfit which revealed her small frame, she burst onto sta...
