Christina Stripped

christina_stripped.jpgChristina Aguilera's Stripped CD has gotten a lot of playtime lately and she's taken a lot of flack lately for being, uhhh, shall we say more "out there" than other pop stars (Justin, Britney, Jessica, Mandy, Avril, Kelly, Norah, Alicia, etc.).

Christina's first album and her song on Mulan showed the world that she could sing, with a stronger voice and a bigger range than Britney. Stripped reveals her artistry and songwriting skills a bit more. From the clubby, eager "Can't Hold Us Down" to the obnoxious and sex-laced "Dirrty" and the kick-ass girl-power "Fighter" we get a sense of Christina's energy. From "I'm OK," "Walk Away," and "Infatuation" we get a sense of her sensitivity and songwriting skills.

In fact, "I'm OK," a song about her abusive father, was recorded in one take while Christina lay on her back. It contains some powerful lines:

Once upon a time there was a girl
In her early years she had to learn
How to grow up living in a war that she called home
Never know just where to turn for shelter from the storm
Hurt me to see the pain across my mother's face
Everytime my father's fist would put her in her place
Hearing all the yelling I would cry up in my room
Hoping it would be over soon

I plainly admit to having all the Aqua CDs. To having all the Mariah CDs. To having all the Britney and Mandy CDs. Poppy, peppy, "no-brainer" music is great music, for me, when I'm doing work and not trying to set a mood and don't want to think about what I'm hearing.

Christina's jumped out of that category into the kind of music I listen to when I want to listen to some good music. Yeah, she's a bit brash. Yeah, she's hyper-sexual. But dammit can she sing, and from what I've seen so far, she can write too. That's gotta get respect these days.

Why did I write this? No real reason. Just to get it out.

  1. I completely agree. I believe that christina's message is completely positive if u look at it with the right mindset. She is empowering women to take control of their sexuality and everyone is running scared. why? This is an opportunity for every single one of us to look past the walls of media frenzy how skinny you "have" to be, and just love ourselvs. And as much as we don't want to admit it we are living in a very chovanistic society and to come right out and slap that in the face is a bold gutsy thing to do. So i dare all of you to stand up for whatever you believe in becasue YOU CAN!!!

  2. I really like Christina Aguilera's music i get where shes coming from and i really like her style, its like no one elses and i really respect that. Shes awesome and a has some really good beats. And the thing i hate most is that people be trippin over her when theys don't even know her which is pretty f***ing stupid and wrong. With All my respest for Christina Aguilera Courtney

  3. Sure, she recently changed her voice and style much, but will it be enough for beating britney? Let's keep our finger crossed for her 🙂

  4. i really love Christina i think that she has a very strong lovely voice. Alex Parks and people like that are no where near as good as Christina they're not even on the first step. you have to have guts to be like Christina or else you'll be worried what people think, whereas Christina jus' goe's with the flow, doe's what she wants and dosn't let anyone else rule her career. I love her loads. xXx!
