April 28, 2000 - The National
Enquirer reports this week that Christina Aguilera recently said in an
interview "One part of why I wanted fame so bad was to use it to spread
the word about domestic violence and child abuse. It was something
that I had been exposed to." The tabloid goes on to say Aguilera's
father, Fausto Aguilera, finally met with Christina for the first time
in 12 years earlier this year backstage after a New York concert appearance
in January. What turned out to be a pleasant reunion could be short lived
according to Christina's grandfather, who says the charges are untrue,
though Aguilera's close friend Ashley Hickcox suggests Christina indeed
27, 2000 - MTV got a hold of Fred Durst to comment on Christina, here's
what he had to say "For one thing, Christina's amazing, I really like that
girl. I think she's an amazing singer. She's gonna have longevity. She's
going to be one of those amazing icon women. I'm really attracted to her,
I like her, and I've talked to her a couple of times, and that's that.
I haven't had any type of relationship with her, or any type of intercourse
with her. She's never sucked my d***, she's never sucked Carson's." [now
this is the kind of frankness we appreciate... besides, Fred's got his
hands full with a chain of Playboy playmates, and trying to cover up that
bald spot on his head! Lose the cap buddy!]
April 27, 2000 - Christina's
summer concert tour dates were announced today, for a full rundown (some
don't have dates set yet), click here.
April 27, 2000 - MTV had
the making of and the debut of Eminem's Real Slim Shady, Christina is depicted
at the Grammys as a blow up doll. [ask yourself this, if he hates pop bands
as much as he says, why the hell did he pick up on Christina in front of
a worldwide TV audience earlier?]
April 27, 2000 - Christina
Aguilera was on a Sonicnet/Yahoo/Doritos chat tonight but it only lasted
about 25 minutes and in general was fluff. She did address concerns about
MP3 destroying the music industry and how she wishes that the medium would
disappear. No questions (allowed I assume) about Em, Fred, Carson, Enrique,
etc. and was generally fluff. Side note, Christina didn't handle the spontaneous
nature of the questioning very well, particularly when asked about her
3 best qualities, maybe that's why *NSYNC at Britney had/will have a more
active roll in their SNL appearances?
April 27, 2000 - Well New
York Post blind items and Eminem be damned, Christina was voted #4 in Maxim's
100 sexiest women issue, well above Britney who came in at 36th.
April 26, 2000 - Well the
internet is abuzz about the Christina vs. Eminem controversy, and none
moreso than Groupiecentral.com, who's posters are laying into Christina
bigtime. Some quick quotes: "I heard that she was in fact with Fred - my
girlfriend works with a music firm based out of LA" ...more trash "Her
attitude is the worst I've seen in any star in a long time and I say this
from meeting her although it's also pretty obvious from seeing how she
is on TV." and "actions do speak for themselves, and Christina is not a
good example I don't care how great her voice is, she gives herself a BAAD
name" ...from someone who's claimed to met her "when I met her at an awards
show last summer, (even BEFORE she was famous) was totally obnoxious and
conceited."...and finally "She looks to me like she is mini me for
Donatella Versace. Everytime that girl opens her mouth I despise her more
April 24, 2000 - You may
have noticed Christina Aguilera singing on Sonicnet.com commercials that
have been appearing on MTV. Sonicnet, by the way, is owned by MTV Internet,
though so far they haven't overlapped the two site's content we've noticed.
April 24, 2000 - Christina
as you may know will be singing at Greenbrier High School's prom on April
28. There's a lot of talk that the girls at the school don't like the idea
since she'll take all the attention away from them.
April 23, 2000 - popcentric.com
is reporting a new Christina rumor, saying that she was 'shunned by the
cast' of SNL for asking them "I'm thinking of going to the Cannes Film
Festival, does anyone know where it will it will be held this year?" It's
always held in Cannes, France. [clever rumor but we doubt its truthfulness]
April 22, 2000 - Christina's
mom has addressed several more rumors on the christina-a.com site. Quick
rundown, her and Enrique are just "friends" (she doesn't have a celeb boyfriend),
the Mariah TOTP comment never occurred, she's not warring against Britney,
she was asked by Playboy to pose nude but declined. The Enrique
part seems to be sideskirting the issue, we put merit in that one.
April 22, 2000 - The New
York Daily News had a recap of our earlier comments about Christina and
Eminem. Apparently she did consider going to court but decided against
a suit because suing for slander requires that somebody takes him seriously.
It's obvious in the song that he's making this stuff up about a lot of
people." This did cause the column's writers to comment later on their
eYada.com program that perhaps there may be some truth to what Eminem is
saying and that is why she doesn't want to sue.
April 20, 2000 - We had a
chance to listen to the new Eminem song today, basically he's claiming
he'd hate to win a grammy because he'd have to sit next to Britney and
then listen to Fred Durst and Carson Daly argue over who got [oral sex]
from Christina first. Then he says he might play an MP3 of him getting
it from her. [on this note, stay tuned for a new abstracts Eminem page
in the next few weeks! Yeah, we'll dig up all the dirt!]
April 20, 2000 - If you thought
the Britney vs. Christina rivalry wasn't heated enough as it is, we're
hearing that Germany's Bravo magazine is revealing a possible relationship
between Justin Timberlake and Christina. It's said that the big diamond
ring that Christina was wearing on Men Strike Back was a friendship ring
April 20, 2000 - We wonder
if Christina will forever be bashed by others. This time South Park had
pig like Christina monsters that were a side effect from the kids getting
a dose of Ritalin.
April 20, 2000 - Ok, we have
no clue why the damn poll keeps resetting. Geez, we pray it's a programming
glitch and not someone actually deleting the data file, can't imagine who'd
bother! Anyways, Britney won poll's #1 and 2. Vote quickly, coz we
don't even know when it'll reset again!
April 20, 2000 - Music legend
Carole King tells E! Online's Ted Casablanca that music's preoccupation
with looks, Britney and Christina being specifically mentioned, is anything
new. She says "That's the way it's always been, but I don't think it keeps
the talent from getting out." Ted later dissed Britney re: the comment.
April 18, 2000 - Christina
Aguilera will record her Christmas album in May with her one of her idols
Etta James, who's At Last is part of Aguilera's live show set list.
April 18, 2000 - Eminem is
continuing to bash Christina and is telling exactly why, as MTV reports
appearance on a recent MTV video countdown in which Aguilera discusses
Eminem's cute-babe factor, marital status, violent lyrics, and rocky lovelife.
Eminem tells "NME," "I respected her until she said this about me.... She
totally blew it." [geez, what's the matta 'Em, truth hurt? Apparently
the wannabe can dish it but can't take it.]
April 18, 2000 - More fallout
on the Christina SNL appearance. As expected, Christina-a.com posted a
flat denial and the foxnews.com columnist retracted earlier remarks, though
not without trashing Christina's style of dress. [btw, did anyone notice
that Sisqo's mic died on him on SNL last week while singing thong song?
After this past week, one almost wonders if this was planned?]
April 18, 2000 - For some
reason our poll reset, though the voting trends weren't effected much...
We're looking into it, could be that it was rolled over?
April 17, 2000 - Christina
won New Entertainer of the Year award at the fifth annual American Latino
Media Arts Awards Sunday. Access Hollywood also had pictures of her arriving
with George Santos who was her date for the evening (no, we have no clue
who he is, perhaps a Latin actor?).
April 16, 2000 - Another
picture from Christina's performance on Men Strike Back in New York, Tuesday.
April 16, 2000 - Sears and
Levi's will sponsor Christina's 37 city concert tour that will hit the
US and Canada. Exact tour dates and cities will be announced April 27,
and first tier tickets will go on sale April 29.
April 16, 2000 - Christina
sang the opening anthem for the first Pittsburgh Pirates home game (her
home town) this season on April 4th.
April 14, 2000 - In the what
Aguilera rumor isn't true bin, z100 today claims that Mariah wasn't the
reason Christina sang with the boys, but rather it was a marketing decision
to have her on to draw a heterosexual male crowd as well. This seems reasonable,
though it still leaves open the photo snub we reported earlier.
April 14, 2000 - In VH1's
review of Christina's Men Strike Back performance they say "Young Christina
Aguilera has a diva's pipes already and can cram more notes into a single
line than a trio of Mariahs."
April 14, 2000 - Worldpop
today claimed the person responsible for hitting Christina over the head
with a flowerpot was Mariah Carey... don't worry, they were joking.
April 14, 2000 - Richard
Johnson today claimed on eYada.com that eyewitnesses saw that Enrique left
Nell's 10 minutes before Christina and her entourage did, though he speculated
that perhaps that was to throw off those same witnesses. [besides, if the
two were to start dating, could you think of a better match for Christina?
April 13, 2000 - More details
from Richard Johnson on Pagesix.com, where he reports that Christina and
Enrique "ended up entwined in a lusty liplock after a steamy dirty-dancing
session at Nell's Wednesday." A witness told Johnson "They just started
going at it, they were kissing very deeply, very passionately. They weren't
trying to hide it at all."
April 13, 2000 - Christina
was bashed over the head (yeah, just like Britney) by a flower pot which
fell at New York's Pastis after yesterday's Men Strike Back performance.
April 13, 2000 - eYada.com's
Richard Johnson today reported that Christina Aguilera was "all over Enrique
like a 'cheap suit'" during the Men Strike Back post party at Pastis.
April 13, 2000 - We're hearing
that Eminem's new CD will include tracks that take shots at Britney, 'N
Sync, Puff Daddy, and Christina. Christina has said that Em's accusation
that she is promiscuous is untrue and that he is upset over comments she
said she made at him in jest. We hear these comments were that Eminem was
an AAWB (African American WannaBe).
April 13, 2000 - Christina
will be doing a headlining tour this summer and MTV reports she will have
Destiny's Child open for her. She told MTV news "I'm really a huge fan
of Destiny's Child."
April 12, 2000 - SPECIAL
REPORT - Christina Aguilera SNL Scandal. Click
here for full details.
April 11, 2000 - We're proud
to announce Abstracts.net is the #1 search result (for now anyways) for
the term christina aguilera on aolsearch. This may put Britney's
#1 position on our poll in jeopardy, as she's #25 (was #11) and Jessica
Simpson drops to #3 (was #1).
April 11, 2000 - We're getting
additional word on the rift between Mariah and Christina, apparently the
reason she got moved from the Divas to the Men Strike Back in the VH1 specials
is that Mariah requested that Christina not be allowed to perform with
April 11, 2000 - eYada.com's
internet radio gossip host Lori Kramer absolutely slammed Christina Aguilera
today, saying she was "skinny as a bone" and was "an unattractive girl
hidden behind 4 pounds of makeup" after seeing her on TV over the weekend
(we presume SNL). Though she did say she is "very talented" and "has a
10 times better voice than Britney". Kramer's co-host Richard Johnson added
"her breasts are definitely fake". Those wanting to listen go to Tuesday's
archive about 1 hr. 45 mins. through.
April 11, 2000 - In a follow
up to our Saturday Night Live report earlier, we're hearing that Z100 is
saying the people that were booing Christina after her second song on SNL
were crew members. What we wonder is what she did to make these
guys put their jobs on the line to pull this?
April 11, 2000 - Rick Dees
is reporting last Tuesday that Christina Aguilera
is parting way too much
according to her record company. Partying,
April 11, 2000 - Rick Dees
reported last Monday that Christina Aguilera has
been dumped by Carson Daly
in favor of Tara Reid.
April 11, 2000 - The New
York Daily News is reporting that Carson Daly will
be taking Tara Reid with
him around the country as he does TRL in remote
locations. The paper added
"Christina Aguilera, who had a real crush on
Daly, must be heartsick."
April 9, 2000 - Another autographed
pic of Christina this time an after performance picture from a Chicago
show. The 8x10 (item #302626282) currently is bid at $11.50 and ends April
April 9, 2000 - Christina
was on SNL last night. She performed I Turn To You and later What
a Girl Wants. What we wanna know is what the hell was the crowd doing
at the end of the second song? It sounded like a moose call or some weird
sort of booing. Hopefully these punks were quickly escorted out the building,
although the show was over at that point anyways.
April 9, 2000 - Christina
has an autographed picture up for bids on eBay. The 8x10 picture (item
#302610020) runs until April 16 and has an opening bid of $9.99.
April 8, 2000 - MTV had Making
the Video on tonight for I Turn To You, it was the first I'd seen
it so I'm not sure if it was the premiere or not, but they filmed late
into the night to finish and once again she plugged Wendy's [note to Dave
Thomas, hire this girl to endorse your product, I'm sure it'll be an easy
sell as she plugs your burgers all the time anyways!]
April 8, 2000 - Popcentric.com
is reporting second hand (thus treat as RUMOR) that Top of the Pops
interviewed Christina (well we know this part is true, it's on their site)
and apparently Mariah Carey refused to be photographed with Aguilera. Christina
was quoted as saying "It was actually hard for me to take at first because
I have idolised her for so long and I just wonder why?"
April 6, 2000 - More confirmation
on the Tara Reid + Carson Daly lovematch as Pagesix.com confirms the two
their first appearance in public as a couple for the premiere of Black
and White in New York.
April 6, 2000 - E! Online's
Ted Casablanca slams Christina (though more Britney than her) in is reader
feedback section, saying in response to "Wannabe singer starlets like Britney
and Christina could learn something from" Sheryl Crow, saying "Yeah, singing
lessons, for starters. (Certainly Britney.)"
April 6, 2000 - Christina
was on Access Hollywood tonight talking about her new video and they mentioned
the Latin Grammy awards may have a few nominations in store for her, and
will be held at Staples Center like the Grammys were.
April 4, 2000 - Rick Dees
reported last week that Christina said in a recent interview her biggest
turn on was men who make her laugh and that her biggest turn-off were men
who have facial hair and don't shower.
April 2, 2000 - Christina
Aguilera will be the sole woman performing in VH1 Special Men Strike Back,
where she will be doing duets with the likes of Sting, Backstreet Boys,
Tom Jones, D'Angelo and Enrique Iglesias. The show will premiere Tuesday,
April 18 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT).
April 2, 2000 - Sonicnet.com
has an article about Christina talking about how she is striving for a
long career in the music biz and her Spanish album. Supposedly the Spanish
album will include fresh material rather than just a Spanish translation
of her English album. She also talks about the frustrations that MMC has
caused, saying "It frustrates me when people don't take a minute to recognize
the differences between all of us. They just lump us all together, just
because we're about the same age and have similar backgrounds."
April 2, 2000 - The New York
Post today is reporting that Carson Daly is now dating fellow MTV personality
Tara Reid, who is said to be gaga over Carson after meeting him at Spring
Break in Cancun. She's left LA to live in New York to be closer to Carson,
so we guess this means Christina is out of the picture, if she ever was
here for March news headlines and links
