|Just Not A Fan - Sep 30, 2003|
|Evanescence's Amy Lee has plenty to say about the other women in music industry. |
She told Stepping Out magazine that she’s no fan of two of the biggest female names in music. "Britney Spears doesn't rock. She's a mechanical pop robot. Basically she's a puppet," said Lee.
And don’t even get her started on Christina Aguilera. "Britney isn't as bad as Christina when it comes to showing skin, Christina shows a lot more. They both seem to be competing with each other," Lee said....

|Xtreem X-tina - Sep 27, 2003|
|Ok, as for different looks she doesn't come close to Madonna, but Christina Aguilera did experiment a lot with make-up, scissors and haircolor through the years.|
1990 - Christina, aproximately 9 years old (when she was still cute and sweet...).
1998 - The 'Genie in a Bottle' is still a little slumpy.
1999 - Say cheese... X-tina has found out that all you need to do is smile a lot.
2000 - Christina has exchanged the long trousers and t-shirts for short tops and matching kinky hair.
2001 - It's obvious that X-tina's hairdresser smokes crack. Or are these twisted cornrows rolled in so ugly o...
|Beasties! - Oct 04, 2003|
|Man's Best Friend is of course you! World Animal Day is coming up on October 4th, and to us that is a good reason to look for the inner beast inside our favourite celebs.|
Looking at the many metamorphoses she went through in the last couple of years, you could compare Christina Aguilera to a chameleon. But with this outfit she's closer to applying for a job in Artis (a Zoo in Holland) as a Flamingo. If she had this outfit in blue, she could always try out as Pino from Sesame Street.

|'Justified and Stripped' rings hollow - Sep 03, 2003|
|So which one was justified and which was stripped?|
You couldn't be blamed for asking that if you attended Tuesday night's closing concert of the Justin Timberlake/Christina Aguilera "Justified and Stripped" tour at St. Paul's Xcel Energy Center. Though Aguilera brought most of the elaborate set pieces and pyrotechnics, she also came across as the more accomplished vocalist, and she'd be justified in transforming her image next into a soul stylist.
Meanwhile, Timberlake was the one with the stripped-down, simply staged show. He impressed more with his dancing skills than his voice.

|The Musical Divide:Black -vs- White - Sep 30, 2003|
|The state of music has changed. More and more, artists are crossing genres and capturing the loyalty of those not necessarily in their original target audience. While some welcome this change as is, others find inequality when it comes to white artists who have an easier time crossing over into the black audience than black artists tend to have crossing over into white audiences.|
When tuning into any radio or television station, it is apparent that a number of white artists are very successful performing "black" music. Artists like Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera are embrace...

|The battle-weary music industry surveyed the wreckage of another dismal six months on Wednesday as global data showed music sales tumbled 10.9 percent, piling more pressure on music companies to do deals to survive.|
Despite big hits from pop queen Christina Aguilera and rapper 50 Cent, Internet downloading and CD-burning continued to ravage the industry, dragging music sales down to $12.7 billion in the first half of this year, a leading industry body said.

|While the recording industry hopes a trove of lawsuits will discourage downloading, local music listeners aren't sweating the prospect of getting sued -- even though the price could be up to $150,000 per song.|
With millions of downloaders out there, any one person is more likely to garner a huge recording contract than a court summons.

|Britney's Kiss Catfight - Sep 07, 2003|
|Raunchy singer Christina Aguilera has angrily confronted pop princess Britney Spears over their controversial kisses with Madonna.|
The steamy scenes stunned guests at the recent MTV Video Music Awards - but Aguilera now claims Britney is trying to muscle in on her image.
The pair are reported to have had a bust-up in a Hollywood nightclub last weekend following the New York bash.
The Daily Star said Christina was angry that she had helped Britney "sex-up" her image.
She accused her former Mousketeer colleague of mimicking her saucy style in an attempt to boost record sales.

|From "Dirrty" Girl to 21st Century Icon - Oct 2003|
|The dressing room door shuts behind me.|
I am no longer in the presence of Christina Aguilera, who is soft, gentle, sweet, a little on the intense, nervy side, prone to giggle, an all-American mall girl who thanks God a lot, who says “Whatever” even more. I have had my 40 minutes with someone who gives away her time very rarely indeed. You could feel the weight of the time tick away, time she would rather be doing something else. Something other than the diluted version of therapy that the celebrity interview is.
Her politeness, as I asked the obvious, the difficult and the silly, was a demo...

|He and fellow pop sensation Christina Aguilera's "Stripped/Justified Tour" is hitting the Jersey shore Saturday and then heading north to Continental Arena in East Rutherford and Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y. |
It stands out as this summer's lone true pop-music tour.
"I don't think there is anything quite like what we're doing now on the road," Timberlake said during a teleconference from Orlando, Fla. "It's like two shows for the price of one."

|Justin Enjoys busy Night With Christina, Post-concert Show - Aug 07, 2003|
|Reprinted from late editions of yesterday's Globe.|
There are several escape routes from the perilous shores of teen-pop. Justin Timberlake -- one fifth of wholesome, harmonizing 'N Sync -- has chosen the path of credibility, hitching his wagon to cutting-edge producers and songwriters for his hopefully titled solo debut ''Justified.'' Christina Aguilera -- whose 1999 debut was built on innocent pop hooks and a girl's prerogative to take her time -- has chosen the path of sex, trading power ballads for booty anthems on her brashly titled album ''Stripped.''
The pair of 22-year-olds has teame...
|Christina Aguilera Puts Mississippi Company on the Map - Aug 01, 2003|
|A Hernando lamp company is getting a lot of attention from People Magazine and MTV. That's because singer Christina Aguilera saw a Stylecraft lamp while staying at a Dallas hotel.

|Justin, Christina make leap from teen idols to entertainers - Jul 28, 2003|
|Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera have come a long way since their teen idol days. They've become full-fledged entertainers. Think it's a stretch? If you had been at U.S. Bank Arena Saturday night, you'd think twice. |
Watching Aguilera through the eyes of an 8-year-old in blonde pigtails really puts this artist - and she is an artist - in perspective.
Yes, she sells sex dirtier than Britney Spears once did, but the awe in the eyes of a little girl in the front row says what this artist is really all about. Beyond the skimpy outfits, the stripper dancing routines and the piercings, th...
|Aguilera and Timberlake get down and dirty at the Palace - Jul 25, 2003|
|If the hierarchy of high school students was applicable in life, pop stars Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake wouldn't share a concert bill, much less a ZIP code. |
In high school, Aguilera would be the misunderstood Goth-trollop and Timberlake, a male cheerleader.
But in the world of entertainment, the only rule is "whatever makes money, works."
The Justified and Stripped tour featuring Timberlake and Aguilera is selling. Although numbers in cities such as Denver and San Antonio have been lackluster, fans have bought all but 1,000 of the 15,000 available seats for tonight'...
|Christina's out to get real - Jul 24, 2003|
|True to its title, "Stripped," the audacious new RCA Records release from Christina Aguilera, strips away the last remnants of her previous teen idol persona and what's left is as real as it gets. |
The 16 new tracks that comprise "Stripped," including her sensational debut single "Dirrty," showcases an unadorned, unfettered and fearlessly outspoken artist who has liberated herself, her soul and her music on an album that is as much a declaration of independence as it is a convincing demonstration of her fierce and original talent. Simply put, this is the real dea...

|POP REVIEW; A Maturity In Being 22, As the Fans Come Along - Jun 05, 2003|
|They said teen pop wouldn't last. But not only did it last; it also evolved. On Wednesday night, Justin Timberlake (of 'N Sync), the golden boy of teen pop, and Christina Aguilera, its black sheep, began their 45-date Justified and Stripped Tour at the America West Arena here. |
But before going any further, here are some quick answers to the pressing questions fans and pop-obsessives have been asking about the tour:
Yes, Mr. Timberlake played 'N Sync songs; no, the two didn't sing together; yes, Ms. Aguilera has filled out a little around the middle; no, the audience was not full of squeal...
|Christina Aguilera: 'Fighter' - Jun 05, 2003|
|She's a smart girl is our Xtina. 'Dirrty' was an inspired role reversal (and a great pop song) but just as her fans were lamenting the loss of their prom queen to some seedy underground boxing cartel, she bounced back with 'Beautiful' (another great pop song) proving she still had a heart. Albeit somewhat battered and bruised.|
And now she's releasing 'Fighter' - what is it with her and violence? - in which little Christina punches above her weight yet again with a feisty display of bareknuckle musical fisticuffs. Dave Narravo's on hand for some epic geeetar to match the ball-crushing crescend...

|She's been corn-rowed, frizzed, blond and brunette. He's tried shaggy, curly and shaved. Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake, both 22, have experimented with every trend known to mankind's hairstylists.|
All signs indicate she'll be dark brunette and he'll be closely cropped when the singers kick off their summer-long Justified and Stripped tour tonight in Phoenix.
No one doubts the marketing genius behind combining the tours. These two young pop stars have spent half their lives in the public eye, sharing all the growth spurts and tantrums associated with growing up.

|Justin and Christina - Jun 02, 2003|
|It's a super pop photo op as Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera get up close and personal, striking some seriously sexy poses for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. |
Justin says, "It was cool. Christina's cool. No drama. It was easy."
Both Justin and Christina were more than ready for their close-ups and as Rolling Stone music editor Joe Levy sees it, they're also ready to shatter that "teeny bopper" title.

Call it X-tina strikes back. in the video for "Can't Hold Us Down," Christina and Lil Kim take on a gang of guys in New York's Lower East Side. And in the vein of J.Lo's "I'm Glad" clip, the video takes place circa 1984.

She was reported to have gone for a radical change to copy Britney and Madonna's new brunette styles.

|It's hard not to feel sympathy for Christina Aguilera. She can sing circles around any of the other female pop singers, and that includes her one-time archrival Britney Spears. She was "there" first -- before Britney -- but her timing was off. Her 1999 self-titled debut didn't come out until seven months after Britney's debut, and it's as if Ms. Aguilera has been trying to play catch-up ever since. |
This has to at least partially explain why she's felt the need to get so very tarty these days. Her skimpy awards-show get-ups reek of one-upmanship, as if she needs to outdo all the oth...
