"But at the end [of a performance], I want to wipe it all off, get in my sweatpants, make silly noises with my kids and have someone comfort and cuddle me."
  • Aguilera told Paper magazine her go-to films are ones that are "mood-driven and inspiring," like Frida, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, Amadeus, Elizabeth and Basquiat.

  • Anonymous from Hudson NhChristina is my second favorite singer. Just because you are jealous; don't put her down. She has worked hard for everything she has. SHE IS GREAT....
  • Marija from Belgrade, SerbiaI just love Christina Aguilera!!Vocally,she is my idol!I love singing as well,and not to brag but I can totally copy her voice.Btw,as for her voice,all of you who claim she has no one,better take your words back,because she has an incredible 4-octave vocal range!Musically,she is spinto soprano and can sing in whistle register,just as Mariah!
  • Laura from London, EnglandSo, Don and Sam, what you are saying is men only respond to a singer if she looks and acts like a skank? So it's your fault really, that women are made this was by the record companys. If you didn't buy it, It wouldnt sell, so the record companys would have to find someone with talent....Blame yourselves!
  • Erin from Pittsburgh, PaChristina Aguilara is a very talented singer with a powerful voice. I hated how she changed her image for her "Stripped" album. It was digrating and made her look like a slave for men. Since she's been married, she has changed her image to a more classy yet sassy look.
  • Fuckoff from Milwaukee, WiWHORE thats all i can say
  • Sam from Sydney, Australiayeah, dons right. these girls look and act like skanks in order to get a male audience. they dont actually sing at concerts and their albums are masked by so many layers of electronic crap. they have no talent, the only reason record companies would sign them up is to break into the male audience.
  • Don from Pittsburgh, PaMaybe in person she casts a plastic facade. But, from what I have seen,she looks so good I would eat her, You know what I mean guys!!!! Musically, I would'nt spend one thin dime on her albums. Her and Brittany have minimal talent at best, but they look soooooooooo, GOOD. Hey girls,before you call me a dog,remember, these women dress and act like this because THEY WANT MEN TO RESPOND. Enough.
  • Metalrose from St Paul, MnChristina's nickname is wrong.

    Xtina actually translates to ChrisTTina.

    "X" in the sense she is using it stands for Christ. Not Chris.

    Used correctly it would be Xina.
  • Kayls from Telford, Englandi think christina vioce is amazing i have a simular voice 2 hers (im not acting big headed or trying 2 show off!) i wud love 2 no where she got a record deal from so i can follow in her footsteps.
  • Kc from Hong Kong, Hong KongJust right after she released Genie In A Bottle, she came to Hong Kong for promotion,and Hong Kong records company described that she's the coming new Britney and more. She just looked as a yeenage girl at that time.
