Out is the inhibited, enigmatic girl we used to know. In is the promiscuous, sultry woman that is in pursuit of transforming the pop music scene as we know it. Christina Aguilera returns on October 29 with ?Stripped.?
If there was any mystery to this ?Genie in the Bottle,? it was certainly revealed in her first single off the album, ?Dirrty.? This is undoubtedly the most revealing Aguilera music video ever produced, perhaps even the most revealing pop music video of all time. In fact, some music stations had to air the video edited.
Aguilera was allowed more control over this album then she was on her 1999 debut self-titled album.
?When you?re seventeen years old, green and inexperienced, you?re grateful for any guidance and direction you can get,? she says. ?I was under the thumb of people who were mostly interested in keeping me doing exactly the same thing. But I?m not blaming anyone. You learn fast in this business and, once I knew where I wanted to go, I didn?t let anyone get in my way.?
This new image currently being portrayed by the singer represents the real Aguilera, she says.
?This music is who I am. You can take it or leave it, but I?m not going to change, not for anyone.?
