* DarkerAndEdgier: For her early videos, it was usually just a fun, typical, lighthearted video of her and some dancers doing a routine (one exception is "I Turn To You", which depicted a girl surviving a car crash). Then starting with the Stripped era, they became edgier. The second video for "Beautiful" shows a discriminated goth, an anorexic girl in her underwear frustrating over herself, a girl being bullied, a sad, skinny teen in a room plastered with pictures of body-builders, a pair of gay men hesitant on kissing, a depressed girl, and a defeated looking drag queen--all overcoming their inner anguish as Aguilera sings in a nearly deserted room. "Fighter" even ends with Christina kicking a hole in the screen. In "Your Body" she kills multiple men and acts extra "trashy".

"The Voice Within" is very bleak-looking (see Deliberately Monochrome). "Fighter" even ends with Christina kicking a hole in is pure NightmareFuel. She still makes some lighter videos like "Candyman", but for the screen. In "Your Body" she kills multiple men most part, they have depth and acts extra "trashy". edge to them that her first few lacked. Could also count as GrowingTheBeard.

'''Christina''' Maria '''Aguilera''' (1999-present) was born on December 18th, in 1980. A former member of ''TheMickeyMouseClub'' revival, Aguilera started her music career as a [[IdolSinger generic bubblegum pop singer]], then [[{{Stripperiffic}} started taking off her clothes]] when sales waned. After that, she started embracing a neo-{{Burlesque}} persona, by which time she [[GrowingTheBeard finally found a lyrical constant]]. She retired from touring in 2008 to look after her son Max. In 2010, she released the album ''Bionic'' to poor sales and speculation that her career was over, largely due to ''Bionic'''s sound and visuals drawing comparisons to the then rising Lady Gaga. In 2011, she returned the spotlight as a coach on the talent show ''Series/TheVoice'', alternating between seasons to focus on her family and prevent herself from burning out. She also released another album, ''Lotus'', which had ever poorer sales than ''Bionic'', and subsequently became CanonDiscontinuity. Aguilera has since made a return to ''The Voice'' after taking time off for her family and has made the suggestion that she will release new music in the near future.

She has featured her vocals on up to 25 vocal performances to date, by artists including, but not limited to, Music/{{Maroon 5}}, Music/CeeLoGreen, Nelly, Herbie Hancock, T.I., Diddy, Music/NickiMinaj, The Rolling Stones, Music/{{Pink}}, Ricky Martin, Mya, Missy Elliot, Music/{{Pitbull}} and A Great Big World. Aguilera is a six time UsefulNotes/GrammyAward winner who has sold 50 million albums worldwide to date. Her number one hits include: "Come On Over" (2000), "What a Girl Wants" (1999), and the ever youthful, "Genie In a Bottle" (1999). Later hits have included "Beautiful", "Candyman", and "Ain't No Other Man".

* BSide: We're A Miracle, Too Beautiful For Words.

to:

* {{Bowdlerization}}: The music video for "Dirrty" was censored in Thailand due to Thai-language posters that advertised its sex tourism (including mention of child prostitutes).
* BSide: We're A Miracle, Too Beautiful For Words.Words.
* CallBack: "Lotus" features a lot of lyrical and musical call backs to her earlier works:"Reflection" gets a shout out in the introduction, "I won't let you bring me down" in Best Of Me reminding people of Beautiful, "I'm A Fighter" in Army Of Me, pretty self explanatory, "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?." in Around The World, reminds people of Lady Marmalade, "Red Hot Kinda Love" refers to ''Infatuation'' on Stripped. "Let There Be Love" reminds many of her works on "Bionic".



[[folder:Musician Tropes]]

[[AC:Musician Tropes]]
* {{Abusive Parent|s}}: Her biological father. Her stepfather, however, was a nice guy.
* BareYourMidriff: Especially in the earlier years.
* CoverVersion: As a musician she loves to cover is "At Last" in honor of Etta James.
* DefrostingIceQueen: As a judge on "The Voice," critics have noted that she's much friendlier than they thought.
* DreamTeam: Her tour with Music/JustinTimberlake was rather special. Music/{{Madonna}} and BritneySpears have also worked with her live. Music/NickiMinaj got featured on ''Bionic'' in "Woohoo". She also did successful tracks with Pitbull and Maroon 5. Lady Marmalade is so successful and well loved and featured on all her shows since 2001.
* FormerChildStar: Ex-Mousketeer and she's fairly well-adjusted with the only real bumps in her adult life were her divorce and getting arrested for public intoxication.
* HiddenDepths: Thanks to her acting background as a cast member on ''The New Mickey Mouse Club'' and her own natural singing talent, she has an uncanny ability to pull off [[http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop-shop/6480448/hristina-aguilera-best-impressions impressions]] of her fellow celebs, including [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uD2nOjV3AaI Britney]].
** In fact, when she guest-starred on ''Saturday Night Live'', her impression of Samantha Jones from ''Series/SexAndTheCity'' was regarded as truly impressive and one of the highlights of the episode. When she appeared on ''Late Night with Seth Meyers'', he begged her to do it again, to which [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PTgexKvxOQ she happily obliged.]]
* HollywoodPudgy: Invoked by the press. One tabloid article on Christina claimed that she has spun out of control since separating from her husband with her weight supposedly ballooning from a size 2 to a size 8. That's right. A size that is not only slim, but STILL almost half the size of the average American woman is seen as "ballooning", and worthy of such snarky advice as "it's time to put down the fried chicken and get on the treadmill". E!'s "Fashion Police", features a panel of four snarky fashion judges (including Joan Rivers and longtime rival Kelly Osbourne) who repeatedly slam Aguilera for her weight and fashion choices. Even worse, this is seen as the worst indicator of her downward spiral, as compared to say, her arrest for public intoxication.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: At 5', this comes into play with any guy she stands next to, regardless if she's wearing heels. Her joint promotional appearances with Music/JustinTimberlake for their tour required them to either sit down or she use a ScullyBox in order for them to fit into frame together.
** Her ex-husband had to bend down so they could fit into frame in their wedding pictures.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's considered by some to be a bitch, but she does put a lot of work into philanthropy and does value the people who have supported her career.
* KidsAreCruel: Aguilera was bullied as a child due to clashes with her personality
* LikeIsLikeAComma: Speaks like this.
* MilitaryBrat: She moved around quite frequently due to being one.
* TheRival: Music/LadyGaga, Music/MariahCarey, Music/{{Pink}}.
** Fellow Mouseketeer BritneySpears in her IdolSinger days, though the two get along great.
* SelfTitledAlbum: Naturally her debut.
* SexySilhouette: Her "By Night" commercial where she stands behind a screen naked. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o56HeFX5u68 This "Making of" video]] brings her sexiness off the charts.
* SingingVoiceDissonance: One of the shining examples. She speaks in a very airy and light voice, but when she sings, it's a deep bellow.
* TheUnfettered: Simply doesn't care for criticism and her fans are fond of saying she's "not bothered" by anything which goes wrong in her career, as she should be.
* WolverinePublicity: She's only had hits lately as a featured artist rather than a solo artist. The most notable examples are on [[Music/MaroonFive Maroon 5]]'s "Moves Like Jagger", Music/{{Pitbull}}'s "Feel This Moment", A Great Big World's "Say Something".

** ''Bionic'' is her trying to be creative with doing mostly electro-pop. Unfortunately, this album was unsuccessful due to the hype backlash and many comparisons to LadyGaga, who was red-hot at the time.

Aguilera is considered to be the most talented and critically acclaimed out of the [[TheNineties late 1990s]] girl pop singers trend that was kicked off by Music/BritneySpears, and her peers also include Music/JessicaSimpson and Music/MandyMoore, and other rising singers.
