Christina Aguilera No

Born in Staten Island of New York City and raised in Pennsylvania, Aguilera appeared on television shows in her early years before gaining a recording contract with RCA Records in 1998. Her self-titled debut album, released in 1999, reached number one in the US and spawned three US number-one singles: “Genie in a Bottle”, “What a Girl Wants”, and “Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)”. While recognized as a prominent figure in the contemporary teen pop scene, Aguilera sought to assume artistic control with Stripped (2002) and its lead single “Dirrty”, which displayed her sexually emancipated persona and generated considerable controversy. The second single from the album, “Beautiful”, received favorable response for its empowering lyrics and became an anthem for the LGBT community.
