Detailed : Christina Maria Aguilera (born December
18, 1980) is an American pop singer and ex-Mouseketeer who rose to fame
in the late 1990s with her debut hit song Genie in a Bottle.
She was born in Staten Island, New York, USA.
Her first song recorded was in Japan, but she only caught the attention
of Americans when she released the song reflection for the Disney animated
production of Mulan. The video clip featured a young Christina with
a bob hair cut, who did not know what was ahead of her young career.
Catering to the fresh pop sound that was popular of the era, her career
is still going strong in the year 2002, although her image has become
In the year 2000 she emphasized her Latino heritage, following the Latino
trend of the time, by releasing her first Latin album, Mi Reflejo. At
this time she claimed to have been learning Spanish.
By the year 2002, however, her previously heralded vocals were much

banned the video from national television, because a pair of posters
that appear in the background of the boxing ring advertise, in Thai
language, the sex tourism and underage girls of Thailand. The producers
and director of the video claimed to be ignorant of the meaning of the
posters. She is currently banned from entering Thailand as it offended
the Thai people.
Her 2nd official English speaking album, Stripped, was ranked one of
the worst albums to have been released by many charts, but fans beg
to differ. Stripped features many interludes, one before the track,
Infatuation, which features her speaking fluent Spanish.
Aguilera's voice has been complemented with brilliance several times,
and even in comparison to diva, Mariah Carey.
