|Cutting the strings and flying solo - Oct 15, 2003|
|Timberlake’s solo album, Justified, has sold more copies than Carter’s and Lachey’s. His videos consistently reached number one on TRL, and he won several MTV Video Music Awards. He did not play in front of audiences of 1,000 like Carter; rather, he co-headlined the Justified and Stripped tour with Christina Aguilera, and filled venues like America West Arena with thousands of crazed teens.|
|Thrifty costumes bring fright to Halloween - Oct 24, 2002|

|Walt Disney rolling in his grave over 'Dirrty' video - Oct 10, 2002|
|Recently, my friends and I were watching MTV's "Making the Video." |
The video being made was for Christina Aguilera's latest song "Dirrty." I was in shock. I do not remember one positive comment my friends or I said about the video.
Music artists and producers have sunk to an all-time low. They no longer care about their integrity and only want to give people what they crave most: sex appeal.
It was such a dramatic change from the days when she was a featured singer and actor on Disney's "Mickey Mouse Club."
The message behind Disney is wholesome and family or...
|Back in the school with the VMAs - Sep 04, 2002|
|The VMA MTV Music Awards pre-show was a parade of the most popular girls in school trying to top one another with revealing prom dresses. Christina Aguilera pranced around with her cut-off denim mini-skirt and scarf/shirt. Pink and Britney Spears both wore black leather Hell's Angels' attire. Evidently, the clothing themes of the evening were trailer trash and dominatrix.|

|As protective power tool for women, flirting has had key role - Oct 18, 2003|

|Aguilera's Alcohol in Sweden - Sep 29, 2003|
|Pop superstar Christina Aguilera reportedly drank so much vodka during a meal in Sweden last week, she was unable to walk.|
According to Website MSNBC, the "Dirrty" singer and a female pal got so inebriated they spent three and a half hours cuddling each other.
And when she left for her hotel, Christina had to be carried out by her bodyguards.
One source says, "She laughed loudly at an art collection they had at the restaurant that showed hidden surveillance pictures of toilet models."
Aguilera then canceled planned appointments later that day, with one source telling...

|Aguilera Parties Hard at Gay Club - Sep 04, 2003|
|Pop superstar Christina Aguilera has been enjoying herself in New York by partying in a gay club with Pamela Anderson.|
The singer showed up at Plaid's weekly Buckingham night with the former "Baywatch" babe, as well as photographer David LaChapelle -- who directed her raunchy "Dirrty" video -- and transsexual icon Amanda Lepore.
Christina has reportedly begged Lapore to "take me somewhere I can see guys getting into it," according to the Page Six.
She then spent the night on the dancefloor while LaChapelle took photos of her grinding....
|Aguilera Steps in for J-Lo in MTV's Ladies Night - Aug 28, 2003|
|Christina Aguilera is slated to replace Jennifer Lopez in the MTV Video Music Awards' big pop performance, teaming up with Madonna and old pal Britney Spears.|
J.Lo was originally lined up to perform "Like a Virgin" with Brit and Madge at the beginning of tonight's show in New York, but she had to pull out due to filming problems in Winnipeg, Canada.
Lopez had to film an extra week of scenes on the set of "Shall We Dance?" and couldn't make rehearsals for what is being billed as the pop event of the year.
J.Lo is keeping everyone guessing after she was spotted dining in...

|Today's young girls know less about sex than a decade ago - Oct 19, 2003|
|"They show girls now like Christina Aguilera ... she's totally showing everything. How many little girls watch it? How many people my age watch it?" says Katrina. "They see it as like, `if she can do it, why can't we? If she's popular, this is how we become popular. (Girls) feel more comfortable doing it now that they see someone they look up to doing it."|
|Shaking Things Up - Nov 2003|
|Who would have believed two years ago that self-confessed “problem child” Pink would change the pop landscape forever? Yet today Christina Aguilera and Avril Lavigne dance to the beat of her drum. How did she do it? “I went out on a limb,” she tells Blender, “and I never thought about it twice.”|

|R-rated homecomings prompt cultural clash - Oct 19, 2003|
|Welcome to the Eminem and Christina Aguilera generation. Hip-hop reigns, tank tops rule and "freaking" -- dancing suggestively against your partner in a way that sometimes looks like sex -- often is the dance of choice.|
Kids insist they're just wearing and doing what's hip. But school districts across Metro Detroit are cracking down at dances and in hallways because they say certain clothes interfere with the job of educating children.

|Capisce - Jun 26, 2003|
|Christina Aguilera's web site helpfully includes a section called "Rumor Mill," over which her mom, Shelly, presides. It's a smart idea -- controversy seems to cling to Aguilera like a Versace dress, so why shouldn't Shelly tackle the gossip head-on? She answers it all: Is Christina dating Dave Grohl? No. Nose job? No. Doesn't like to make eye contact? Sometimes. Are she and Justin Timberlake together? Only onstage, for this summer's ballyhooed hooed Justified and Stripped tour. "There is only a working relationship, not a romantic relationship," Shelly writes. Capisce? |
|Pink Slams Christina Fling Rumors - Jul 28, 2003|
|Pink is great friends with fellow pop idol Christina Aguilera -- but slams tabloid reports the two enjoyed a lesbian fling at the star's 23rd birthday party. |
The "Feel Good Time" rocker admits the "Dirrty" singer was at the raucous party, but denies reports of a sexual attraction between the pair.
She says, "I love to party with Christina, she's really cool. There have been so many wild nights recently, my 23rd birthday party got pretty crazy.
"The only people who ever come to my parties are true party animals and that night we played a game of spin the bott...
|Aguilera's Environment Angst - Jul 09, 2003|
|Pop princess Christina Aquilera has been spotted throwing another diva tantrum -- but this time it was for saving the environment.|
The revamped singer enjoyed a recent meal at a posh Hollywood restaurant, and asked waiters to pop her remaining food into a doggy bag before she left -- but when the unfinished morsels were returned in a styrofoam box, Christina lost her cool.
The petite singer was furious that the establishment was using such environmentally dangerous material, and tried to explain to the waiter exactly why styrofoam is bad. Unfortunately, the poor server spoke barely a word o...
|Mandy Moore Shows She Knows How to Deal - Jul 06, 2003|
|"Mandy presents a very positive image," Seventeen's Morgan says. "She's the young, smart girl. Readers admire her fashion sense. Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera have such a big superstar vibe that they seem untouchable, and the life they lead is so different from the average girl's. Mandy is someone our readers would like to be friends with. She gives off a girl-next- door vibe. She's not pretentious."|
|'Stripped' scary stuff - Nov 05, 2002|
|Frankly, Christina Aguilera's new album Stripped scares the hell out of us. |
No, not because of her aggressively skanky new image - if Christina wants to pierce her lip and nose, pioneer the use of hair extensions as a halter top and include pictures of her deep-throating a sausage in her CD, well, she's 21 and it's a free country, you know?
And it's certainly not because of her music - because honestly, Stripped may be self-indulgent, but it isn't half-bad.
Thankfully, she's pretty much ditched the whole teen-pop sound along with her look. Instead of all those dance ditties, Stripped has...
|Aguilera's a Bandwagoner - Sep 03, 2000|
|Anybody out there know the Spanish word for "cash-grab?" How about the translation of "jumping on the bandwagon?" 'Cause those are about the two nicest things we can say about the shameful silliness of Christina Aguilera's new Spanish-language album. And it's not just because the part-Ecuadoran singer reportedly had to take Spanish lessons and then sing these tracks phonetically. Or that she re-recorded Genie in a Bottle and other hits from her debut album instead of taking a chance on all-new material. |
No, it's because for someone who is supposedly eager to reconnect wit...
|Aguilera in Secret Affair - May 27, 2003|
|Pop star Christina Aguilera has been enjoying a secret love affair with a member of her management team, reports claim.|
The singer, 22, famous for her flesh-baring antics, is reportedly a "smitten kitten" after an eight-month relationship with Jordan Bratman, 25, whom she met at a management meeting last October.
A source tells British magazine Heat, "At their first encounter Jordan asked Christina if she wanted to get something to eat and, here we are, eight months later, and they are still head over heels.
"He really could be the perfect one for Christina. He may not...
|Christina Aguilera Buys Glass House - May 20, 2003|
|Christina Aguilera has bought a $5.5 million all-glass house overlooking Hollywood's Sunset Strip.|
The singer splashed out on the extravagant abode -- once owned by Liza Minnelli's ex-husband Jack Haley Jr. -- but will face trouble if she throws a house-warming party.
The mansion is at the end of a cul-de-sac with no room for parking -- so guests who trek there by car will have to pay valets to take their vehicles down to the other end of Sunset Strip to park....
|More fun than it has a right to be - Aug 19, 2001|
|Aguilera unsuccessfully went to court to prevent this early collection, recorded when the pop tart was a mere 14 and 15 years old, from being released on Tuesday. |
But after listening to it, you might think she doth protest too much.
The combination of dance songs -- actually a lot more fun than they have any right to be -- and overwrought balladry is hardly a far cry from the music she's putting out today, albeit a lot less polished.
Sure there are a few spotty moments, like her off-key delivery of the ballad Dream A Dream, or when you can hear her ask "Is that all?" during the...
|Just don't buy it - Aug 17, 2003|
|It's hard to say what's more wickedly enjoyable: Listening to a young, inexperienced Christina warbling inexpertly on this set of cheesy, unfinished disco demos (You can hear her ask, "Something like that?" during one take) that she cut years ago with two strugging songwriters; imagining her pitching a nuclear-powered diva fit when she found out her lawyers couldn't block this blatant cash-in crapfest; or reading the barely concealed contempt in the disclaimer-style liner notes ("I did not intend that the recordings would be widely released, especially after I signed with a majo...|
|Pop princess - Jun 18, 2000|
|CALGARY -- If the rows of empty seats at the Saddledome last night were anything to go by, pop princess Christina Aguilera has a bit more work to do in order to topple Queen Britney from her throne. |
But that doesn't mean the 7,500 fans who came to see Aguilera during the Calgary stop of her cross-Canada Psykoblast Tour weren't completely under her spell.
The diminutive 19-year-old ex-Mousketeer strolled confidently down a metal staircase, launching into her first hit, Genie In a Bottle.
Flanked by six co-ed dancers and joined onstage by two female backup singers and a six-piece backing b...
|Pop queen holds court - Jun 16, 2000|
|EDMONTON -- Psykoblast turned out to be a long ordeal of bubblegum for a short payoff of flash - if you were a guy, that is. |
"I was dragged here by my girlfriend," one bored young fellow shrugged. Hey, get used to it, man.
Most of the 7,000 people who screamed their lungs out and waved glowsticks in Skyreach Centre last night were young girls, pleased as only young girls can be with the opening quartet of boy bands, topped by the one and only Christina Aguilera.
It was a long night. From McMaster & James "rocking the house" to the first appearance of the 19-year-o...
|Aguilera's Weight Gain Explained - May 12, 2003|
|Christina Aguilera's weight gain has been explained -- she's loading up on fattening foods to prepare for her upcoming tour.|
The 22-year-old singer surprised fans with her recently acquired curves -- a big departure from her pencil-thin days -- which led to rumors that the star was pregnant.
But her trainer Ashley Borden says the former Mouseketeer is deliberately munching on carbohydrate-laden foods to give her more energy for when she hits the road with pop hunk Justin Timberlake this summer.
Borden, who says Aguilera was "underfed" before her recent diet changes, explains, &q...
|At 22, pop star's already on her third house - May 11, 2003|
|Pop star Christina Aguilera has purchased a Hollywood Hills home for $5 million. |
The five-bedroom, 6,500-square-foot house, built in 1960, underwent an extensive renovation by designer Steve Hermann. It has a home theater with a bar, a bathroom and a lounge. The house also has a pool, a spa, a 25-foot waterfall and unobstructed city views.
This is not the first home that the 22-year-old singer from Pittsburgh has owned in the L.A. area. In September, she bought a smaller, Beverly Hills-area house, which she had been leasing, for just under $3 million. In January 2001, she bought a home in ...
|Spears Shape Up to Win Back Pop Crown - May 07, 2003|
|A source adds, "Anyone who thinks seeing Christina and Justin's success hasn't been hard on Britney is wrong. Britney was the star, Justin was the boyfriend and Christina the dowdier rival -- but now they've all but eclipsed Britney's fame."|
|Aguilera's Million Dollar House - Apr 28, 2003|
|Pop star Christina Aguilera is making the most of her musical success -- by buying herself a plush $5 million mansion in the Hollywood Hills.|
The 22-year-old singer's new five-bedroom home boasts a theater with a bar, bathroom and lounge. The house also has a pool, spa, 25-foot waterfall and stunning views of the city.
In September, Aguilera bought a smaller Beverly Hills-area house, which she had been leasing, for just under $3 million. In January 2001, she bought a home in a gated community which she later sold -- without ever moving into it....
|Charting the pop tarts - 2003|
|Fashionistas tuning into the 45th Annual Grammy Awards tomorrow night will be doing so as much to see what the stars will wear as what they'll win. |
Unlike the Oscars, where celebs work the red carpet into a couture frenzy of glamour gowns dripping in Harry Winston diamonds, the Grammys are the place to count bare-midriffs and check out the eclectic styles of music's edgiest pop, rock, hip-hop, rap and R&B artists.
On the trend-o-metre, who will be topping the pop tart Grammy charts? Which nominees will be Monday's neckline and beltline news?

|Skin on show at Latin Grammys - Sep 22, 2000|
|The Jennifer Lopez effect dominated fashion at the inaugural Latin Grammy Awards: The less you wore, the more attention you drew. |
Jaws dropped earlier this year when the actress-singer appeared at the traditional Grammy awards show in February in a now-infamous Versace gown, which opened in a deep V all the way to her navel.
This time Christina Aguilera, Colombian songstress Shakira and Latin rocker Alejandra Guzman pushed the boundaries of what they can show off in public.
Their shimmering skintight gowns revealed more than they covered.

|Z103.5's Hollywood Headlines - May 17, 2002|
|The battle of the pop-princesses has begun. Recently Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears were at the same club in Los Angeles. A photographer asked the 2 to pose for a picture together. This is where it gets messy. Christina Aguilera refused to pose because she wasn't willing to quote "be in the same picture as that teenybopper trash". |
She then went on to say that her music is just as good as Britney's, if not better but Britney gets more publicity. No comment from Britney, but she did over-hear the slag but stormed off before any hair was pulled, clothes were ripped off, or Yo M...
|Osbourne War Over Christina - Mar 17, 2003|
|Siblings Kelly and Jack Osbourne are at loggerheads over his friendship with Kelly's nemesis, singer Christina Aguilera.|
The reality TV stars of MTV's "The Osbournes" are at war because Jack has been frequenting LA's hottest clubs with Christina, who Kelly has dubbed "one of the most disgusting human beings in the world."
Christina, 22, says of her new-found friendship with Jack, "He's the coolest. When we first met I said, 'Yo, what's your sister's beef with me?' Jack's great. He just had so many complimentary things to say to me.
"He was like, 'I have no be...
|Schoolgirl antics, from Russia with lust - Mar 09, 2003|
|It's the video for the single that's causing the real stir. If Christina Aguilera's piercings and Britney Spears' cantering through a high school flexing her thighs were deemed provocative, Volkova and Katina in their schoolgirl uniforms are incendiary -- or at least as incendiary as two girls can be while cavorting in a rainstorm. Wet and wild, the pair spends the video performing such shocking acts as holding hands, chastely locking lips and cuddling behind a chain-link fence while a crowd of scandalized adults looks on.|

Christina Aguilera and Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters. They met at an LA Hotel and started making out (yah, it happened that fast!?!), and ever since they've been attached at the ... hip! Yah, that's it, the hip! Christina was dating Jorge Santo (back up dancer) but that ended in January...

|Aguilera to Face Versace - Mar 05, 2003|
|Raunchy pop babe Christina Aguilera will soon dominate top fashion magazines -- as the new face of Italian label Versace.|
The "Dirrty" singer is already a hot topic for celebrity magazines -- often slated for her saucy image and revealing outfits.
But the 22-year-old pop star has silenced her critics by fronting one of the world's most respected labels.
She says, "It's just so great. I've got this ad campaign coming up with Donatella and Versace.
"So I'm very excited and this is a whole new world for me, so that's very exciting."

|Tied Up - 2002|
|Who wants to be saddled with a bothersome blouse? At the MTV Movie Awards, pop diva Christina Aguilera, who sings on the Moulin Rouge soundtrack, goes for a bustier that might have been lifted from the film's costume department. She downplays the sexy top with laced-up blue-gray jeans. Hey, at least she finally tames her wild mane into cute tight curls....|
|Belly Up - Feb 28, 2002|
|Will the day ever come when Christina Aguilera finally gets enough of chokers and newsboy caps? At the LOTTA Fall Collection during L.A. Fashion Week, she picks a pink suede chapeau to match her lipstick and rose and black lace bra--but wait, were we supposed to see that? Seriously, would it kill the girl to zip up occasionally? Or is that too much to ask of a teen pop star these days?...|
|Haute Tamale - May 01, 2002|
|Christina Aguilera slithers into the Maxim Hot 100 party in Los Angeles wearing just the right sexy guise for a men's-mag bash. Love the sizzling red halter top, denim miniskirt, ankle strap heels and oversize black leather jacket. But those stiff platinum ringlets look like they could snap off any minute. And is Little Miss Pop Star applying makeup with a trowel these days? It must take hours to get down to the bare skin before bed....|

|Starboards - 2001|
|Just when it looked like The Mickey Mouse Club couldn't possibly churn out any more success stories, along comes Christina Aguilera. |
The 19-year-old singing, dancing, video-making whiz kid became pop music's latest teen queen this summer with the release of her first single, "Genie in a Bottle."
The surprising success of her self-titled album, which debuted at number one in June and has remained in the top five since then, only confirms what Christina has known all along--that she was destined for stardom.
Although she calls the Pittsburgh suburb of Wexford, Pennsylvania, home,...

|Armed Forces - Nov 13, 2002|
|War! What is it good for? Well, maybe a few street fashion trends. That's why Jada Pinkett Smith, hubby Will Smith and Christina Aguilera look ready for active duty at MTV's Spanking New Music Week in New York. From Jada's safety-pinned Run DMC tee, fatigues and boots to Will's Run DMC tee, '76er cap and shirt and suede desert boots to Christina's low-rider olive khakis, bullet belt and gray boxing tee, this special forces trio is ready for the front lines. We suggest losing the jaunty pink hat, though. Way too easy a target....|
|Demon in a Bottle - 2002|
|Looks like Christina Aguilera made a deal with Satan--and lost--at the MTV Video Music Awards in New York. Her devilish new designer apparently gives her clothes with a mind of their own, and now they're shriveling to try and suffocate her. That scarf hitched around her breasts, the itty-bitty denim skirt with a silver chain belt and the lace-up boots prove once again that you don't mess with the Dark Prince or you'll get "Dirrty."...|
|The Skin Crowd - Sep 04, 2002|
|Christina Aquilera is hangin' out (literally) at the MTV Video Music Awards in New York. Her life--or body, at least--is an open book in nothing but a scarf tied around her breasts and an itty-bitty denim skirt with a silver chain belt, lace-up boots, skunk highlights, a white captain's cap and a few extra pounds of flesh. Sure, her new single is called "Dirty," but does she have to dress the part?...|
|Full Service - Mar 23, 2003|
|Christina Aguilera is ready for her tune-up at the Spun premiere party. She revs things up in a mechanic-style black jumpsuit, strategically unzipped to show off her front bumpers in a red-trimmed tank. She tops off the look with an "at your service" cap, diamond star necklace, red belt and matching boots. Hey, think she's got time for a lube?...|

We can't say what she'll catch, though, with these yellow-and-black leather biker chaps over crotch-high boots and a matching bikini top. And we won't belabor the fact that Shakira did this Dirt Bike Babe bit first--and better. That would be, like, totally low tide....|

|Talk about getting back to your roots! Check out new brunette Christina Aguilera at the 12th annual Music Video Awards, wearing a hot pink graffiti-emblazoned slip, black pumps and giant hoop earrings. She pops up again spouting messages at the Teen People 25 Under 25 party, stretching the boundaries of good taste in a red lycra cut-to-there halter body suit, cropped graffiti jeans and wedges. Not one to be shy about speaking her mind, for some reason Christina feels the need to let her duds do the talking....|

This really is Aguilera, poured into Scott's "Venus of Passion" pink, satin, halter-neck dress, which looks like it was inspired by the Barbie Dream Prom collection. Better watch out, Christina. Walk into a sex-toy shop like that and some perv with $95 might take you home....|
|Where's the Fire? - Dec 11, 2002|
|Christina Aguilera is wrapped up tighter than a pork link at the VH1 Big in 2002 Awards. The pop tart's swathed in a snug hook-front fire engine-red leather minidress and lace-up stilettos, with smudged black eye shadow that actually works with her skunky black 'n' white hair. And hey, you can even see her scalp, which is usually hidden beneath hip hats and scarves. Now, if only we could scrape off a few layers of that pancake makeup. Bet there's a pretty girl trapped in there....|

Are they the only two suffering from bad attitude in this week's chat? No way! There's Julia Roberts, who may be suffering heartbreak with her recent breakup from beau Bratt, but who is still known to be a little difficult toward fans. Ted is giving his insight into that Run...

|You might not know Ryan Gosling's name--yet. But his childhood buddies' should ring a bell. Ever heard of Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake or Keri Russell?|
Slay anything: Getting all fired up with Michael Pitt in Murder.
Yep, Gosling--who's now starring in Murder by Numbers--is the next Mickey Mouse Club alum to shimmy back into the limelight. But this time around, you're more likely to see him in a straitjacket than goofy mouse ears. Unlike his fellow Mouseketeers, who took the bright, shiny high road to mainstream pop-culture success, the 21-year-old Canadian has be...
|The Not So Standard Eyes Have It - Oct 11, 2001|
|Christina Aguilera, holding court at a primo table inside the ultra-exclusive Standard Lounge. City of the Fallen Hip-huggers. No boyfriend-unit in sight, the pop princess surrounded her petite physique with many male pals and one fawning female. Decked out in low-riders, a white one-shoulder top and a too trendy red beret (plus enough sparkly eye shadow to light up the shady spot), the "Genie in a Bottle" opener guzzled down a mega-refreshment. The 20-year-old crooner (who turns legal in two short months) kept to her cushy corner, only getting up to visit the loo with her lady in to...|

|The Eyes Have It - Jan 11, 2001|
|Christina Aguilera was throwing her 'tude around at Houston's. Century City Shopping Center, Los Angeles. While stomping out of the meatery, C.A. pivoted around, nearly smacking waiting diners with her abundant Streisand-esque demeanor. The gal then grabbed a hoodlum-looking guy's hand and continued to flounce out the door. The singing rail simply couldn't have consumed any of the joint's slabs of steak, so slight was her bod. And she sure showed it off in her belly-baring top. No such behavior would be tolerated by...|
|Christmas at hip tchotchke shop Wacko - Jan 03, 2002|
|Christina Aguilera, on a late-night stroll the week before Christmas at hip tchotchke shop Wacko. Hollywood Boulevard. The edge of Silverlake. Joined by an attractive blond handler type and a beefy bod-guard, the "Genie in a Bottle" babe was quite well behaved on this gift-getting jaunt. Winter cazh in a downtown-style jacket, sweater, light blue low-rider sweats and sneaks. With heavy makeup (natch) and her hair tucked under a gray and black Paul Frank knit cap, the sultry songstress bought everything from dolls to art books to toys. The quiet glam gal only spoke to her rep and boug...|
|To know her thoughts - Dec 07, 2000|
|Britney Spears, flying solo from her home state of Louisiana to Los Angeles after Thanksgiving. Nestled in a United Airlines first-class seat, Brit-babe sweetly signed autographs for passengers and crew. Even went out of her way not to wake up her napping next-seat neighbor. The wannabe fashionista sported plaid hip-huggers with a zipper in the front and back, a big white belt, black top and snakeskin boots--plus a lush black fur-collared sweater over the ensemble. Whipped through the latest In Style mag, pausing to check out a shot of Christina Aguilera. (Oh, to know her thoughts...) Though B|

So what if moxie music types say Christina Aguilera has more It than her tube-topped counterpart--who's getting more airplay? Clearly, C.A. has a career beyond satisfying teens who stampede stadiums. Do Brit and Just? Well, they'll always have each other. I hear marriage is in the cuties' cards. But, don't listen to me. I'm one of those half-assed Tarot Terribles--got it wrong on Brad 'n' Jen, but right on the Vegas money for...|
|Raw Fish? - Jul 27, 2000|
|Christina Aguilera, who herself was munching on raw fish (why does Gwyneth Paltrow dripping in wasabi come to mind right about now?) at Sushi on Sunset (on Sunset Boulevard, natch) on a Friday night. The girl's no bigger than a tiger shrimp these days. And since that older woman who was with her looked like she was the singer's mother, let's hope the gal told poor Christina to eat something--at least, get the tempura next time and grease things up, already.|

|Why don't you stop spreading rumors about Christina Aguilera's "attitude"? I think it's sad that it's the only thing you can get on her.

|Christina Aguilera, at the Key Club. Sunset Strip. Fashionistas, get ready for a screeching halt couture: light-denim jeans, tan heels with white straps, pink fluffy hat with a small trim, white tank with sprayed-on red lips with "SEXY" written across them. No hair extensions, though--must have been feeling low-key. Sipped Coronas (lime and all--trés chic) as she watched the crowd and stage below at the monthly Choreographers' Carnival. Sweet and mellow despite Erin Brockovich-esque trappings. Maybe she's just a sweet lamb in wolverine's warble-wear? Don't count on it. After al|

|When it comes to Christina Aguilera and doggie bags, what a girl wants is no Styrofoam! The songbird was eating a vegetarian meal at a Persian restaurant in Hollywood and asked for a container to bring the remains home -- then tossed a fit when the waiter brought her a Styrofoam box. She called for the manager and tried to lecture him about the environmental dangers of Styrofoam, but the guy had no idea who she was and barely spoke English. An exasperated Christina finally gave up and left without her leftovers....|

"What gets me is that Christina thinks she is doing something clever, but anyone can strip," says Delcie Fidler, grandmother of the pop queen.
"I nearly died when I saw she was wearing so little," said Fidler of Christina's outfit in the video for "Lady Marmalade." "I rang her mom and said, 'Oh my God, what is Christina doing?' "
Christina is used to her grandmother vocalizing her opinions, however -- even about her love life. She says that last year, grandma asked her, "'Why didn't y...

If you think that Christina Aguilera is a diva or a power bitch - as many in America's tabloid media clearly do - she's not entirely surprised.
I read this story, she says, that was like 'Christina Aguilera threw a tantrum because her room wasn't perfect' "I don't know why I got pinned with that image. I think maybe some people saw me, in the past, interacting with certain people not in a healthy, good way." Her entourage has left her room at the M...
|Timberlake & Aguilera, The Boyish And the Bare - Aug 27, 2003|
|No matter what one thinks of the art of Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake, it's impressive that the pair, having survived both Mousketeering and teen idoldom, are now filling arenas. Wasn't Annette Funicello an oldies act by their age? Judging by the three-hour concert/dance party they hosted Monday at a packed and shaking MCI Center, Xtina and JT, as they now call themselves, aren't going away anytime soon. |
The D.C. show, originally scheduled for Aug. 19, was postponed after the jungle-gym-like stage rig crashed to the ground before an Atlantic City gig on Aug. 9. The good speakers m...

|Justin Timberlake scarcely needed Christina Aguilera's help in selling out the MCI Center Monday night. The 'N Sync singer gone solo was a force unto himself. |
The girls cooed and shrieked their lungs out, and so did the boys, during Mr. Timberlake's show-closing set. The 22-year-old Tennessean heartthrob with a slinky falsetto is straddling the poles of hetero- and homosexual glamour: He's at once Liza Minnelli and David Cassidy.
Miss Aguilera, no slouch in the vocal department herself (her cover of the Etta James classic "At Last" was particularly strong), got lost in the shadow...

SHELLY'S RESPONSE: Actually, we've never really thought about 'why' she likes Marilyn anymore than anyone analyzes why they are fascinated by their own hobbies or interests. Good question, though. I don't even think she's given much thought as to why Marilyn fascinates her. I would assume that it is the whole aura surrounding Marilyn's story. At least, that's it for me. It's well known that Maril...

|Christina Aguilera might have taken it as a sign from above when the new millenium began with her second single, "What a Girl Wants," sitting at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts. If anything, it was a clear sign of things to come. But, that song wasn't even part of the reason that Christina was eligible for a Grammy award for 1999. Only "Genie in a Bottle" earned the young singer from Wexford, PA a nomination for Best New Artist. That's the award that Christina always wanted growing up. It's the one that she set her sights on.

So when the 18-year-old singer, who has been home-schooled since 8th grade, got invited to her boyfriend's suburban Pittsburgh high school prom in May, she leapt at the chance. But when she arrived, Aguilera met with frosty glares from some of the other girls. Even worse, they left the dance floor en masse when the DJ started spinning Aguilera's just-released single "Genie in a Bottle." "It was kind of sad," says Aguilera. "All I want to do is be normal.

She was there to belt out the national anthem, as she has done for years for the Steelers, Penguins and Pirates.

CHRISTINA: I began performing at local block parties and pool parties around age six or seven, just locally around my home town of Pittsburgh.

CHRISTINA: My parents were definitely supportive, but, you know, people always ask me, 'Did you have, like, the typical stage-mom thing?' or whatever. But, really, maybe I was like a stage-child 'cause I pushed my parents all the way and they have been so supportive and so great. My mom now runs my fan-club, so it's great.

|"What a girl wants ..." - Jul 30, 2000|
|It's a piece of cloth, spritzed with a little perfume, and Christina Aguilera keeps it in a little wooden box. As the singer embarks on her first headlining concert tour this week, that cloth is her prized possession. "It's the scent of my mother's perfume," she says. "She gave it to me so I'll be reminded of her on the road." |
At 19, of course, Aguilera is still moving from childhood to womanhood.
In her sexy outfits, with her omnipresent navel winking at the world, it's easy to forget she's just a few years from her stint as Britney Spears' preteen pal on Disney's The ...

|Pop singer Christina Aguilera released a self-titled album last year that made her and her record company rich. |
More than 8 million people own a copy of the disc, which has spawned two No. 1 singles: Genie in a Bottle and What a Girl Wants.
For a performer as commercially successful as the 1999 winner of the Grammy Award for best new artist, what could be sweeter than an afternoon full of 10-minute chats with reporters?
