Christina Aguilera: You Can't Be Poor If You've Got Talent

Saturday, 10 July 2010

Christina Aguilera To some extent, we all have an idea of the so-called «American dream». If you need to give a succinct definition of this concept, it will be something like «strive to achieve success, find the idea that would bring such success, put in a lot of work, and sacrifice a lot to eventually earn your million dollars which is universally recognized equivalent to success».

However, as we know, nothing is eternal under the moon, so that the traditional American dream in the third millennium has undergone some changes. Today, it can be paraphrased as follows: «discover in yourself any talent as early as possible (ideally - as early as preschool age), deprive yourself of a normal childhood, find your way to any TV show, make a career in show business, earn your ten million dollars before you're thirteen, become famous with your disorderly sex life and wild parties, and then - after us, the deluge». Though both ways to the upper floor of success include 7 figure amounts of money, these dreams are different like night and day. For the personification of the «new American dream» names of many younger generation celebrities spring to mind, but only Christina Aguilera cuts it, as an unorthodox sense of fashion combined with amazing vocals sets apart Christina from her peers.

However, a concession should be made - Christina Aguilera is really a talented singer who is often compared to Madonna for her notorious behavior though Aguilera is probably a more gifted singer than the pop icon. A devout catholic, Christina was born in December 18, 1980 to a U.S. Army sergeant and a teacher of the Spanish language. From her early years she knew exactly what she wanted to do in life and what heights wanted to reach aiming at that elusive «American dream». As a child, Aguilera aspired to be a singer. She was known locally as «the little girl with the big voice», singing in local talent shows and competitions.

Along with Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, Aguilera hosted The Mickey Mouse TV Show in the early 90's. She had many musical influences in her life while she was growing up, some of her inspirations were Madonna, Etta James, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Aretha Franklin and the hit musical The Sound of Music.  She gained media attention very early, all because of her voice and at one time she was dubbed as «the little girl with the big voice». When The Mickey Mouse Show ultimately came to an end in the year 1994, Christina started recording demo songs in an attempt to be signed up by a recording company. In 1998, Aguilera was selected to record the song «Reflection» for the Disney production of Mulan. Recording «Reflection» led to Aguilera earning a contract with RCA Records the same week. «Reflection» peaked within the top twenty on the Adult Contemporary Singles Chart, and it was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song in 1998. Under the exclusive representation of Steve Kurtz, Aguilera's self-titled debut album Christina Aguilera was released in 1999. It reached the top of the Billboard 200 and Canadian album charts, selling eight million copies in the U.S. and over seventeen million copies worldwide.

And it was only the beginning, as each of her next albums sold several million copies, and she has become one of the most successful recording artists of the decade, selling more than 43 million records worldwide. Some of the other major albums recorded by Christina are Stripped, Back to Basics, Mi Reflejo, Just be Free and My Kind of Christmas. She has done numerous television appearances, but till now has not made any movie appearances.  In 2007 Aguilera was named the 19th richest woman in entertainment by Forbes magazine, with a net worth of $60 million.

Through Procter and Gamble Aguilera released her signature fragrance, Simply Christina in 2007 which became the number one perfume in the UK, and later in 2009 it became the 4th best selling perfume in the UK and Germany where it topped sales for the year. In 2008, Aguilera released her third fragrance, Inspire, accompanied with a body care collection.  

Aguilera often took part in photoshoots for magazines; many of these photographs featured her nude or semi-nude. For instance, her cover for Rolling Stone featured the singer only wearing boots and a well-placed electric guitar. It was during this time Aguilera referred to herself as «Xtina», even getting a tattoo of her nickname on the back of her neck and several piercings. In May 2006, she posed nude for a Marilyn Monroe-inspired photoshoot in GQ magazine where she re-created several photographs done by Monroe.

In 2008, Aguilera earned another $20 million thus becoming the 7-th richest woman in the world with Madonna being number one with $72 million. However, after starting a family with a music marketing executive Jordan Bratman in 2005 and giving birth to a son, Max Liron Bratman (Latin first name and Hebrew middle name roughly translate into «My Greatest Song») in 2008, Aguilera's capital slightly reduced and her current net worth is estimated at $75 million. However, this number is kilely to change quickly as Aguilera's performance is rumored to cost you $2.25 million.
