Christina Aguilera (born 18.12.1980)
Christina Aguilera is a pop singer / songwriter who began her rise to fame after recording the song 'Reflection' for the film Mulan.
Net Worth: As of 2013, according to Celebrity Net Worth, Christina Aguilera has a net worth of 130 million USD.
Childhood: Christina Aguilera was born in Staten Island, New York. Her father, Fausto Wagner Xavier Aguilera, of Ecuadorian descent, was a Sergeant in the U.S. Army and her mother, Shelly Loraine Fidler was a Spanish teacher with an Irish heritage. Aguilera took part in many talent contests when she was growing up and her fellow competitors became jealous of her vast talent. She became the subject of ridicule and acts of vandalism were carried out on her home. As a result of this, the family relocated to another suburb. Aged 9, she appeared on Star Search, singing 'A Sunday Kind Of Love' but did not win the contest. In 1993, she joined the Disney Channel's The Mickey Mouse Club. Among her co-stars were Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Ryan Gosling. Aguilera's first recorded song was a hit: a duet with Japanese singer Keizo Nakanishi entitled 'All I Wanna Do.'
Musical Career: In 1998, Aguilera was selected to record the song ' Reflection' for Mulan. 'Reflection' was nominated for a 'Best Original Song' Golden Globe. Her debut studio album, Christina Aguilera was released the next year and reached the top of the Billboard 200 and Canadian album charts. The album sold over 14 million copies worldwide. The singles 'Genie in a Bottle,' 'What a Girl Wants' and Come on Over Baby (All I Want Is You) all topped the Billboard Hot 100. During promotion for the album, Christina was keen to display her vocal abilities and performed acoustic sets, appearing on TV shows with only piano accompaniment. Aguilera won the 'Best New Artist' Grammy in 2000. She was also nominated for 'Best Female Pop Vocal' for 'Genie in a Bottle.' The album Mi Reflejo, released in 2000, was Aguilera's way of emphasising her Latin heritage. The album contained Spanish version of her songs, as well as new Spanish tracks. In 2001, it won her a Latin Grammy for 'Best Female Pop Vocal Album.' Later on in 2000, Aguilera released a Christmas album called My Kind Of Christmas. It has sold over 3.2 million copies worldwide and is certified platinum in the US. Along with Pink, Mya and Lil' Kim, Christina Aguilera was picked to re-record the song ''Lady Marmalade' for the film Moulin Rouge! The single was produced by Missy Elliott and was number one on the Hot 100 for five weeks. It also reached number one in 11 other countries. The song also won its collaborators a 'Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals.' 2002 saw the release of the singer's second full-length English language album. Stripped sold more than 330,000 in its first week. Most of the album had been written by Aguilera (who had signed a global publishing deal with BMG). Ex-Four Non Blondes member, Linda Perry produced some of the more personal tracks on the album. Alicia Keys also wrote a song for the album. Aguilera joined Justin Timberlake on the last leg of his Justified tour and then continued to tour the world, naming the tour the 'Stripped World Tour'. It was named the best tour of the year by Rolling Stone readers. A UK performance of the tour was later released on DVD: Stripped Live in the UK. Not one to shy away from controversy, Aguilera shared an onstage kiss with Madonna during a performance of Madonna's songs 'Like A Virgin' and 'Hollywood' at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2003. Late 2004 onwards, Christina collaborated on a number of tracks, with Missy Elliott, Nelly, the jazz artist Herbie Hancock, Sean 'Diddy Combs' and opera singer Andrea Bocelli. Back To Basics, Aguilera's third English language studio album was released in 2006 and debuted at number one in the United States. The lead single, 'Ain't No Other Man,' was a huge commercial success. Linda Perry and Mark Ronson were among the producers that worked on the album. The album sold over four and a half million copies. 2010 saw the release of her sixth studio album, Bionic. The album fell flat in comparison to her previous work, with critics saying her lyrics were not particularly good. Two years later, Lotus, was released to very similar reviews.
Personal Life: Aguilera has given birth to a son, her first child, with husband Jordan Bratman. Jordan and Christina announced their engagement in 2005 and were married that same year. Max Liron Bratman was born on 12.1.2008. Aguilera and Bratman separated in September 2010, with a divorce being finalised in April 2011. Aguilera began dating Matthew Rutler while on the set of the 2010 film Burlesque.

‘The Voice’ judge channelled her fellow ex-Mouseketeer when she stopped by ‘The Tonight Show’ sofa on Monday.
Christina Aguilera might be about to make her return as a judge on NBC singing competition ‘The Voice’, but the pop diva proved she has more than a few ‘voices’ in her repertoire, when she appeared on Monday's edition of ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon'. The host challenged Xtina to a game of ‘Wheel of Musical Impressions’ while on his sofa, but Fallon probably wasn’t expecting his guest to be such an expert mimic.
Christina Aguilera could have fooled us with her Britney impression.
Aguilera was first challenged to sing the "Folgers Coffee" jingle in the style of her Burlesque co-star Cher, which she managed perfectly. Then Fallon’s turn came, where he delivered a pretty impressive impression of David Bowie, if he were to sing ‘You're a Grand Old Flag’.

Jimmy Fallon provided lots of laughs with his special filming of 'The Tonight Show'.
The Super Bowl XLIX was all anyone could talk about over the weekend - and it wasn't just about the epic win of the New England Patriots over the Seattle Seahawks. As per usual, this year provided some pretty hilarious highlights, most notably from 'The Tonight Show''s Jimmy Fallon.
Jimmy Fallon provided the comedy at Super Bowl XLIX
Fallon was shooting a Super Bowl special for 'The Tonight Show', filming at the Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix for the first time in honour of the occasion. Despite special guests Brandon LaFell, Danny Amendola and LeGarrette Blount of the Patriots making an appearance, Fallon did well to keep the attention on him with his admittedly impressive 'Super Bowl of Lip Sync Battles' skit.

Christina Aguilera is returning to the American swivel chair for the eighth season
Christina Aguilera is back in the red, swivelling chair of The Voice, USA. The platinum pop diva will be back for the eighth season, starting in early 2015, making the new line-up look suspiciously similar to the programme’s initial foursome.

There's a song in there, somewhere.
Settle down folks, Christina Aguilera and Matt Ruttler have named their baby. Of course they have, the little girl was born days ago. But now, out of the goodness of their hearts (not a need for extended publicity), the A-list couple have announced said baby name. And the newborn is called… get ready… deep breath… Summer Rain Ruttler!
As glamorous as she is, apparently Xtina has a secret inner hippie.
If you thought noone could outdo Kim, Kanye and North West… well, you’re right, but this one is definitely up there in the top ten of hippy dippy baby names. Of course, we wouldn’t expect anything less of the woman, who once chose Xtina for her stage name.
The 33 year-old singer took to Twitter to reveal her newborn daughter's adorable name.
On Saturday (Aug 16th) in Los Angeles, Christina Aguilera gave birth to a healthy baby girl. The four-time Grammy winner welcomed a newborn baby daughter, which is her second child, into the world with her fiancé Matthew Rutler.

This is Baby No. 2 for the no longer "Dirrty" performer and Rutler's first.
Christina Aguilera and Matt Rutler just welcomed a baby girl into the world this weekend! The consensus around the web is: we couldn’t be happier for the offspring of two people we’ve never met and are unlikely to ever meet. And they make a really cute family. And Christina looked stunning in her pregnancy photoshoot for V Magazine, so based on that completely unscientific evidence, we expect the little one to look as cute as the tiniest, sparkliest button in the bowl. You know, when they decide to finally sell those first baby photos.
Christina and her fiance have created a new human.
The Genie In A Bottle singer met Rutler on the set of 2010’s Burlesque, where he worked as a production assistant. So there’s one good thing that came out of that movie, at least. The two dated for a few years, before announcing their engagement in February. He proposed on Valentine’s Day, because they’re just oldschool and romantic like that. Soon after, the artist formerly known as Xtina broke news of the pregnancy and it’s been Happily Ever After since. A few weeks before the birth, Aguilera showed off her baby bump and motherly pride in the aforementioned photoshoot. She’s also apparently been working on a new album and Baby got the very first listen. The mom-to-be shared a picture from the recording session, as you do, of herself with a pair of headphones around the bump. She captioned said masterpiece: “t self in a studio with a pair of headphones placed on her baby bump. "Baby girl getting first listen to what mama's been creating in the studio.”
