|One Talented Teen - Aug 15, 1998|
|A self-possessed 17-year-old named Christina Aguilera stopped in the office late last month on a promotional tour organized by the Providence-based music promotion firm Big Noise.|
Aguilera, who is working on her debut record, scored a coup by being chosen to sing the big ballad, 'Reflection', from the soundtrack for the latest animated Disney movie, 'Mulan.'
Born in Staten Island, NY, Aguilera said she grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and has wanted to sing 'since I've been in diapers.' She made her TV debut at age 8 on Star Search.
She was on the brink of signing a record deal with RCA when she h...
|Pittsburgh goes Disney - Aug 25, 1998|
|In a modest white house in Wexford, a tiny blonde girl walks from a back room. She's dressed in the styles of today, with form-fitting black pants, a black crop top with zippered 50s-style jacket/shirt over it, along with black and white wedge-heeled sneakers. Hair and make-up are fixed to perfection. She seems comfortable - and used to being in the spotlight.|
Seventeen-year-old Christina Aguilera may just be Pittsburgh's next claim to fame. She signed with RCA records in April, and in the very same week, was asked to record the pop version of Disney's newest animated film's theme song. 'Refl...
|Weekend Cover Story: Blessed by a 'Genie' - Aug 13, 1999|
|With the summer's hottest single, the girl who grew up singing the national anthem for the Pirates and Penguins could be pop music's next superstar |
Someday soon, if all goes well, she hopes to buy a pair of shoes she swears are nothing short of "totally amazing."
It would be her "little splurge," she says.
For now, there is no time for such frivolity -- with all the photo shoots, the interviews, the live performances, the TV special tapings and, of course, the travel time that comes with being No. 1.
She's lucky she's able to make it home to Wexford once...

|Christina in Rock and Roll Hall exhibit - Aug 08, 2001|
|A major exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, OH will trace teen idols from Frank Sinatra to 'N Sync. 'We're going to look at the phenomenon from the past to the present,' said Jim Henke, the Hall's chief curator. The exhibit likely will span from the early days of Sinatra in the 1940s to current youth sensations 'such as the Backstreet Boys and Christina Aguilera,' Henke said. |
The exhibit is scheduled to open in Spring 2002. The museum already has obtained memorabilia from several teen idols, including David Cassidy, Debbie Gibson, New Kids on the Block, Neil Se...
|Christina joins tribute to Whitney Houston - Jun 19, 2001|
|Christina performed along with Luther Vandross to honor Whitney Houston at the First Annual BET Awards in Las Vegas. Houston joined the duo onstage and was the first artist ever to be given a BET Lifetime Achievement Award. |
Houston, a long time idol of Christina's, and who personally picked Christina for the event, said she was thrilled to accept her award. 'I see this prestigious award as another major milestone in my career,' she said in a statement released by BET. Other performers at the 2001 BET Awards include Destiny's Child, Lil' Bow Wow, Eve with Gwen Stefani, Missy Elliott and Outka...
|Christina makes 'Top 100 Irish In America' - May 01, 2001|
|There are girls who scream at the sight of a mouse, and then there are girls who count the little rodents among their best friends.|
Christina Aguilera might not be mad about mice in general, but she must be feeling more than a little kindly disposed towards one particular mouse - the guy they call Mickey.
After all, it was on the New Mickey Mouse Club television show that Christina, then only 12, got her first big break.
Now the former Mouseketeer is up there with the best of them, singing her heart out alongside such teen faves as Britney Spears and 'N Sync.
In June of 1999, her self-tit...
|Steve Kipner co-writes hits For Christina - Feb 12, 2001|
|With a career now spanning more than three decades, Steve Kipner remains one of the most successful songwriters in the business. Kipner, who has written 13 Top 20 Billboard hits (including the classics "Physical" and "Hard Habit To Break"), is on a new, hot streak. During the past three years, he has co-written and co-produced three, breakthrough Top 5 pop hits: "Genie In A Bottle" for Christina Aguilera (a #1 hit); "He Loves U Not" for Dream; and "The Hardest Thing" for 98 Degrees.|
Celebrating the #1 hit, "Genie In A Bottle" (pictur...
|Christina's Site: Best of the 21st Century - Nov 21, 2000|
|Entertainment Weekly has named Christina's site one of the 'Best Sites of the 21st Century' in its 'Ultimate Guide to Entertainment on the Net.' |
Here's what they had to say:
'It's Official: You cannot escape Christina Aguliera. Besides her countless MTV drop-ins, her new holiday CD ('My Kind of Christmas'), and her website (The Christina Aguilera Experience), the heir to Britney's throne knows how to rub fans the right way.'
Writer Nicholas Fonseca and the EW editors cited their reasons for choosing Christina's site as a standout among pop entertainer sites: 1) the thoroughness of the con...
|Christina: the genie out of the bottle - Aug 25, 2000|
|Whoever said it was easy being a celebrity probably never spent a day with one. |
Try keeping up with Christina Aguilera.
The pop sensation from Wexford, performing at the Post-Gazette Pavilion tomorrow night, was in Cleveland for a whirlwind Wednesday that started with Christmas songs in a recording studio at midnight and ended almost 24 hours later with the Genie act on stage at Gund Arena.
Aguilera, at 19, is on her first major headlining tour and, unlike rival Britney, is drawing rave reviews for her vocal talent. In fact, about the only criticism of her show is that that remarkable voi...
|Forget the genie - these Christina fans were looking for tickets in a bottle - Aug 01, 2000|
|KEARNEY, Neb. - At the Hilltop Mall on Saturday, July 30, 2000 contestants lined up to dig their way through a tub with 100 pounds of pork and beans in search of a pair of tickets to a local concert by the teen pop singer.|
Thirty bottles were buried somewhere in the beans. Half of them contained a pair of tickets to Thursday's concert at the Buffalo County Fair.
It was about the only choice for the fans of Aguilera, whose debut single 'Genie In A Bottle' reached No. 1. All 5,800 tickets for the show have sold out....
|Christina supports anti-piracy campaign - Jul 11, 2000|
|Nearly 70 artists, including Christina Aguilera and Blink-182, lent their names to a full-page ad appearing in papers across the country Tuesday (July 11), paid for by a coalition supporting the rights of artists to determine how their music is distributed online.|
"If a song means a lot to you, imagine what it means to us," the bold print reads. Near the bottom of the ad, under a list of artists involved with the campaign, the same words are followed with "That's why we believe that when our music is available online our rights should be respected."
Timed to coincide with...
|Christina one of Teen People's - Jun 22, 2000|
|"It's really hard being a 19-year-old girl in this business -- you just feel so misunderstood and not taken seriously," says Christina Aguilera. Now that the Staten Island, N.Y.-born singer has won the Grammy for Best New Artist, she can expect a boost in credibility.|
"It puts you on a whole new level," she says. And in her case, fulfills a childhood dream. "That was the award I wanted since I was a little girl. When I was eight or nine, my mom even made me a fake Grammy."
Christina's obviously got a prophetic streak: It was her idea to release a punchier, remix...
|Building a 21st century star - Mar 06, 2000|
|Not long after winning the award for Best New Artist at the Grammys, Christina Aguilera steps inside a black superstretch limo and drives off into the Los Angeles night. Breathless (was it the respectful nods she got from Elton John backstage?), she picks up her cell phone and talks to her mom and then to MTV's Total Request Live host Carson Daly - you know, the people who really count on a night like this. Then she turns to the reporter in the car with her. "Did I sound OK onstage?" she asks. "I was in shock. I was preparing at that moment to put on my loser face." She's g...|
|Grammys 2000 coverage - Jan 22, 2000|
|The biggest star is Britney Spears, but teen-pop voters may feel better throwing their support behind Wexford's own Christina Aguilera, who's actually got some vocal chops to go with the poster. Anyhow, Christina's really hot at the moment (aside from which her record's been selling incredibly well)....|
|Best New Artist: Christina Aguilera - Jan 22, 2000|
|Gear up for the battle of the former Mouseketeers. In one corner is Britney Spears, who charmed the pop charts with "...Baby One More Time." And weighing in with more than 6 million copies sold of her self-titled debut album is pop songstress Christina Aguilera. This "most likely to succeed award" could go to either teen diva, with both possessing fat album sales and popularity. But in a head-to-head match, NARAS may lean toward Aguilera. Aguilera's more powerful voice has the flexibility to lend itself to more poignant material....|
|Christina Aguilera's fast track - Feb 13, 2000|
|Ex-Mouseketeer Has the Voice to Pull Away From Teenpop Pack|
A year ago, who knew Christina Aguilera?
Maybe a few Disney kids, remembering Mouseketeer Christina from "The New Mickey Mouse Club" in the early '90s, where Aguilera was the little 12-year-old with the big voice.
Now, who doesn't know Christina Aguilera?
Her self-titled debut album, released in June, opened at No. 1 and is closing in on sales of 7 million. She's just finished touring with TLC, probably the last time Aguilera will be second-billed and not headlining.
She's all over television, including star turns on th...

Later this month Aguilera and Redman will shoot a video for the track in Los Angeles with Paul Hunter, who has directed clips for the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Lenny Kravitz, and Eminem. Hunter will make his feature film directing debut next year with...
|Surprise, surprise (not): At 20, MTV's awards show still likes to shock - Aug 29, 2003|
|MTV's Video Music Awards celebrated their 20th year with predictable outrageousness Thursday night, from feigned lesbianism to puppet-pummeling rappers.|
The show, telecast from Radio City Music Hall in New York, paid homage to its past repeatedly, starting and ending with acts whose success has been entwined with the network since the '80s.
It also made up for its past mistakes, finally honoring rapper Missy Elliott with her first, and then her second, Moonman trophy.
Madonna set the evening's arch, sexual tone. The queen of music videos was joined for a medley of songs by Britney Spears, C...
|Maturing teen idols deliver grown-up thrills in Oakland - Jun 09, 2003|
|Pop stars can grow up, too -- even dirty ones -- as Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera proved at their concert Saturday night at the Oakland Coliseum ArenaThese 22-year-olds were the same age as their audience, setting them apart from Timberlake's famous ex, Britney Spears, and Avril Lavigne, whose audiences are barely teenagers.|
``Thank you so much for growing up with me,'' said Aguilera. As proof of their coming of age, Aguilera is now ``Xtina'' and Timberlake, ``JT.''
Not to say it wasn't a pop show anymore. Eye candy still abounded, with plenty of pyrotechnics and leather costume c...
