5 facts about the ‘00s star Christina Aguilera.
While being the fuel for recent bubbling aesthetics, 2021 Xtina still got the same aura and voice from the ‘00s — better than wine, if we dare say so.
For those who grew up listening to Can't Hold Us Down, Lady Marmelade & Candyman, there’s no doubt why Aguilera’s star is still burning bright, and these 5 facts couldn’t let us lie anyway.
1 - No one can beat her powerhouse vocals.
Name a stronger voice, we swear we’ll wait.
Having owned 5 Grammys and recently impacted the audience with a powerful medley at the 2021 People's Choice Awards, she was also named Music Icon during the event.
2 - She’s a Y2K aesthetics icon for sure.
Chunky highlights, belly chains, and other ‘00s elements that represent a not-so-distant but already nostalgic reality were all embraced by Xtina during her early days. Twenty years or so later, some of Dua Lipa’s hairstyles, TikTok's subcultures, and streetwear snaps bring us the freshest versions of our teenage year’s fave stars.
3 - But her style followed her rising growth effortlessly.
If once top crops and low-rise pants were all we could picture Christina wearing, now she can’t seem to be bothered while wearing the boldest leather silhouettes and opulent shapes. Using her body as a sculptural canvas, her fierce attitude leaves us all speechless.
4 - She is releasing her 1st Spanish-language album.
Somos Nada & Pa Mis Muchachas are singles from Xtina’s upcoming album, which not only represents a new step in her career but also brings her closer to the message she wants to spread — let it be thru her fits or music.
5 - She knows people can’t hold her or any other minority down.
While presenting the medley at the PCA, the 40-year-old singer brought this strong reflection between her most inspirational hits.
"We've been singing this message a long time. And this message still holds so true today. This is not just for the women or the fighters, but for everybody who has a voice to be heard."
