Haha...you're kinda feisty, there, Artemis.
Anyhoo, let's not shroud our words in politcally correct or naive rhetoric --
she dresses racy because she likes the attention. Lots of girls do that, and like lots of
women, she's attractive and she knows it. And the bottom line is that her act, in the
end, helps her sell records. Christina knows that, too, and so should you.
Does she have talent? No one ever said that she didn't -- in fact, she does have
a nice voice, unlike Britney. But c'mon, Artemis! If the "Dirty" video is a form of
self-expression, then she is basically telling us that she is a slut (listen to the words
to this song, for crying out loud!). If it's not a form of self-expression, then she's
showing us at the very least that she'll do anything for attention.
Now, you say that she is using her individuality to sell records, yet her "individuality"
follows the path of commercialism and the path of so many before her -- using sex to
sell. In light of that, I wouldn't really call it "individualism", but that's a semantical/
philosophical argument. The true individual wouldn't really care what the rest of the
world thought and probably wouldn't be too curious regarding the reactions of John
Q. Public. (Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix are probably the closest people to true
individuals that we've seen in a while.) One of the problems with our society is that
words like "individualism" have become sacred. As I said before, I can do almost
anything under the guise of "individualism" or self-expression, but my self-expression
need not be benevolent or genuine in either content or method.
Anyway, happy listening Artmeis. I mean you no harm or insult, just want to tell you
that if you lay off the crack pipe for a while, my opposing point of view might make
sense to ya...

I don't smoke crack, btw...But i see your point, but don't get me wrong, she's not my favorite artist in the whole world. That spot goes to Green Day/Led Zepplin/Tom Petty....etc.
Her act changes constantly. Dirrty is the only video where she acts like a whore. But they are videos, not reflections of her real life. You are still not understanding, she knows that she is talented and beautiful, and she wants to see how different she can be, but still have plenty of fans.
ugh.....this is getting boring
me and this guy named Emoboy made a new page, i think people would like you, you seem like an intelligent fellow.
go to www.gnoosic.con/discussion/about+any+old+crap.html
i am not bull shitting you. That is the actual name ( my idea-ish...long story)
but we are in need of intelligent types to talk to
>>By Artemis (Tuesday, 15 Jul 2003 19:47)
Thanks for the compliment Artemis. And don't take the crack thing seriously...I was just poking a bit of fun, which I tend to do sometimes.
Glad you like Tom Petty and Zep, by the way.
Might stop by sometime...thanks for the invite once again :)

Although I'm not a fan, I think Christina has a great singing talent. I wonder why people are comparing her with Britney Spears who is obviously the worst artist ever discovered on earth. The only thing i don't like from Christina is the video "Dirrty", "Fighter" and her look since the album "Stripped". I always hate it when "the girl next door" changed into "the diva" or whatever you might want to call it. why the hell she changed that way????
>>By cyber eyes (Wednesday, 16 Jul 2003 16:48)
To me all the singers these days are trying to be " bad asses " Whats with the song dirty. Yes I agree she is very Pretty and can sing very well, but the way she dresses and stuff just bothers me. My mom use to like Christina when she did songs liek Jeanie in a Bottle and her first songs now she just doesn't like her anymore and thats sad:(
>>By Jane (Wednesday, 16 Jul 2003 17:08)
hey guys! ok. Christina is a very talented girl, she is pretty, has a real boost of confidence and has a gr8 bod so why not show it off? I'm sure many peeps would love to be like her but they arent are they? Christina has her own style. She is a very sweet, well mannered girl and she has been through a lot. She deserves a lot of credit for all that she has done.
Why does everyone say she is a whore? If you say she acts like a whore then doesn't that mean she is a whore?? but she doesnt act like a whore so she isnt a whore. dressing like a whore does not however make her a whore but she doesn't dress like a whore. i do not know if you have actually ever met a whore but do you really think whores go around dressing in all the classy and expensive clothes she wears? do you really think they would have the confidence to do that? no, i didnt think so. neway would you quit comparing Christina to britney. They are two very differnt people with two very different personalities and you can not compare them.
I didnt used to like christina i mean i liked her but not her music now i am totally in love with her (im no dyke). I love her clothes but i wouldn't copy her for the world because that is her style not mine. i have my own style just like evry1. Her new albumn is really inspirational especially for us girls and us girls who have had to suffer through domestic violence. well that's my opinion, feel free to e mail me if you like at email@example.com (yes i love the lyrics in this song).
>>By rachiepops (Monday, 21 Jul 2003 18:36)
I for one like the way christina dresses. I like her skimpy little outfits and her nipple rings. I think she if one of the hottest women around. Brittney is cute but christina has two things that brittney doesn't. A beautiful singing voice and real tits. The reason why she is so big though is because she is a very talented singer. I don't even like that kind of music, but he definately has a LOT of talent.

>>By MightyAfroWhitey (Monday, 18 Aug 2003 22:50)
she has a very strong voice though 8^)
>>By jack_is_hot6 (Thursday, 21 Aug 2003 04:45)
yeah,it's true that she has a great voice,but she doesn't always know how to use it!
Anyway,she 's ruining it all with that "new attitude"I mean-look at her-she's ridiculous.
she obviously doesn't seem to understand the difference between sexy and slutty!
She didn't want to be on the "losers"'s side anymore(cause in highschools here,people who liked her or britney were considered losers),so she decided to become "cool"!Well,in my opinion she didn't-she became a fool!!!:))))I mean-I can consider Britney cooler than Christina cause at least she's honest,and she's not pretending to be someone she's not!!!Plus-look at the guys with whom Britney was-they are cool!!!Frankly-I consider Colin Farrell the coolest!!!
And people-don't take anything personal-I'm not attacking anyone-I'm just sharing my opinion,no hard feelings!
>>By Eli_Molko (Friday, 22 Aug 2003 23:36)
i have her unavailble mix on video & man have i missed out on a lot of her live performances. I also loved the biography segment--wow, she went through a lot of hate before she was popular.
>>By star (Sunday, 19 Oct 2003 19:50)
im still here btw. jst wanted to say i looooooove CHRISTINA. she really has helped me thru a lot this year. for instance my muma dn brother were having an argument and i wa slistenign to 'the voice within' and 'im ok' and i jst had to ahve acry. the stroy she tells could practically b my own. i love christina, and... sorry im actually crying here, i gotta go now, im a bit emotional you know.
>>By rachiepops (Friday, 24 Oct 2003 21:11)
omg- how fake did i sound??? sorry bout that. i do actually love her- dw. o yer and im 14!!
>>By rachiepops (Wednesday, 29 Oct 2003 14:21)
Wow there is so much I could say in this whole matter I just dont know where to begin. First I agree with almost everything Davidos said. Now to get one thing clear I dont hate Christina however, I hate the image she puts out now. And the reason for that is weather you guys want to see it or not. Is that in the music world you have to change your look to sell records. And believe or not but most of the time your record label and evryone else will tell you to change or look or say you need to do this or change that for a video. Plain and simple sex sells so they do it. Although to me there are ways to stay fresh and still sell many cd's and not having to degrade yourself while doing it. And for all the people who are always saying that she does it for individuality. And that shes being herself and only dressing like that because she is testing people. LOL Give me a break every discussion I tend to go to people talk like they know the person. Do you really know these people. It would be like walking down a street and picking someone out and saying you know what there intentions are in wearing what they are wearing. Stop talking like you all know the real christina and that shes such a nice person and dresses for herself. It's right in front of your faces almost with every big female artist. That they all change and dress more sexy to sell music. It's been said many times as well on national tv by some artists. Jessica was told to lose pounds and dress and sincert way for a video. Then she did then they told her to get a six pack for the next video. She amitted to all of it. So dont sit there and say you know that she is doing it for herself when you have no real clue if she is. Most of you people sit here and talk about famous people like you really know them. When there like anyone else in this whole. I give props to her voice and even have some of her music. But doesn't mean I have to give her props where it isn't needed. She could easily be more talented and more respected if she kept a classy look maybe with a little skin but in a appealing way which you can do. And sell just as much music if not more. Cause people would look at her different. The whole world plain and simple is based on image weather people want to amitt it or not. I'm not saying it's right but it is true. And people will use your image aganist you. Either way all the female artists who stoop low to change there image and get a low sense of sexy style are the followers and are looking at one another and trying to compete. It's sad that the music business is that way. But it is and you either stand up for yourself and not go with it or degrade and be like all the rest of the trash.
>>By MissTrix (Sunday, 21 Dec 2003 00:03)
i hate pop music, but just being honest here, i luv christina's voice. "the voice within" is a great song, i'm glad she sings it. but why the hell did she sing "dirrty"? it's such a shit song. christina don't need to be in the front page of magazines. people who really loves music and her talent will go on liking her even if she doesn't make news kissing madonna and bitchney spears.
>>By forgetmenot (Thursday, 25 Dec 2003 20:28)
she looks so bad without make up!!!!! but ya she has a good voice.
>>By Jane (Friday, 26 Dec 2003 05:08)
She can sing like crazy hit some of the best notes that no other can. But damn girl get rid of that image that seems to get worse and worse every second I look at you.
>>By MissTrix (Tuesday, 30 Dec 2003 23:00)
wow i luv christina! she is a great artist,an inspiration and a beautiful person!!
She has a wonerful voice and my nan even likes her!

>>By therion (Tuesday, 30 Mar 2004 16:29)
She used to look so nice and now she turns into some 80's looking person. Anyways i checked her height and she's as tall as an average japanese singer (5'2") that's not that much taller than me im only an inch shorter than her!
>>By Azureluck (Sunday, 18 Apr 2004 04:10)
was sup erbody all i have 2 say iz that christina aguilera and Aaliyah r # 1 and u kno what fuck all u haters "kelly osborne ashanti" i luv u christina aguilera and Aaliyah rip 1979-2001
>>By curve (Sunday, 18 Apr 2004 15:09)
Christina Aguilera sucks!!!!
she is such a dumb slut without any brains!
ans she is so small i could crush her if im going to sit on her.. and that says a lot, because im absolutely not fat!! (1,69m / 60 kg )
so i just want to say that if you want to hear a great and supersexy voice you had to listen to Rammstein. their singer is the sexiest man on the whole world.
he is just God... a sexgod!
or listen to RHCP or the Guns n Roses.
>>By Milou Lindemann (Tuesday, 4 May 2004 20:17)
that's a little strange to be comparing Christina to Guns n Roses, etc....you can't really do that. And was is the purpose of the statement that she is really small? She can't reall help that, i mean jesus, why don't you come out of the shallow end for a while. And i like the cliche' *dumb slut without any brains*....she is a woman in her early 20's, don't you honestly expect her to be the perfect angel? I mean, yeah, some of the stuff she does is pretty risque' but damn. And, she does write most of her songs, especially her latest album, so i doubt that she doesn't have any brains. And don't try to deny the fact that she has a beautiful voice, ok, that is just ridiculous. Oh, and glad to know that you weigh 60 kg, i am sure everyone was just dieing to know.
>>By Artemis7.0 (Thursday, 10 Jun 2004 18:35)
Christina makes me want to vomit.... What with her wailing voice and her slutty clothes... if you want to call them that... What a sell out.
>>By punk_child_8713 (Friday, 13 Aug 2004 19:29)
i honestly don't know what else to call them besides...uh...slutty clothes. But that is such a trite statement, she dresses how she wants to dress, much in the same way that you or me dress the way we want to dress. And don't be thick, she has a beautiful voice. Its so interesting to see all these new-fangled emo/punk revival kids who always complain that no one understands and "we dress the way we want to dress because we have individuality". Well where the hell is your logic in bashing her for doing the same thing that all the rest of you kids do which is doing what you love and dressing however the hell you damn please. So what if she shows skin, pre-civilization people walked around naked. Its just skin, its her preference. And what is your definition of slutty, eh? I think that you, deep down, wish that you could pull off the individual style that she has, but you are projecting that frustration of not being able to in the form of bashing her and saying that she is fake, slutty, has a sucky voice, etc. Get a grip. She is more talented and motivated and individualistic than you will ever be.
