I confirmed it tonight – we’re headed to see Christina Aguilera in concert on April 20th for her Back To Basics tour! I’m pretty jazzed about it, too!
If you would have talked to me during her Genie in a Bottle phase – I would have said “Christina, who??” — But, I happen to think her Stripped album is one of my top tens; musically, vocally and lyrically. And her latest Back to Basics release? Damn that girl has got some pipes!
I simply love the fact that she’s gotten into this whole jazz and blues genre of music because her voice and style are simply suited for it and really gives spotlight to that voice.
During her tour – Christina will be featured in various scenarios, from a good girl gospel choir, to a sultry strip tease in which she removes a flapper dress to reveal a vintage 20s swimsuit. In one of the racier numbers, “Nasty Naughty Boy,” Christina, dressed in a bra and shorts, brings a male audience member onstage and shows off her S&M side by using five whips and a burning Wheel of Death. Subtle. Despite her current glamorous old Hollywood look, Christina proves she’s “Still Dirrty” by donning some hot lace chaps and riding a carousel horse that comes with its own built-in stripper pole. Yow!

X-tina has the entire package.. the looks, the bod and all of that extreme talent wrapped up into one person. I love her transformation. I love that she’s happy with her marriage to Jordan Bratman. I love the songs that she has written and performed for him and how cute they are together. She gives hope in a world of ridiculous celebrity antics (coughBritneycough).
Did you happen to see her performance at the Grammy’s this year? She absolutely NAILED this rendition of “Its a Mans World” as a tribute to James Brown?:
Or her video for her song, “Hurt”:
Something about that song…the way she sings it – - the emotional tone of the song, just gets me every single time. Put together with the video – I’m damn near in tears.
Yea, I’m a sap. So, sue me. I’m a sucker for artists who open themselves up like Christina does in both “Stripped” and “Back to Basics”.
I can’t wait for this concert! The opening act is The Pussycat Dolls, which I’m thrilled about; and Danity Kane, which I could take or leave. Feh.
Did you see how Christina and hubby Jordan spent a special Valentine’s Day at Disney World? Back at the place where it all started for her. The former Mouseketeer and her husband celebrated Valentine’s Day at Disneyland where they checked out some rides and met up with Mickey himself, who presented the singer with a personalized Valentine’s Day heart.
This isn’t the first time Aguilera, who picked up her fourth Grammy on Sunday, has turned to Mickey and friends for a celebration. The locale for her 24th birthday bash? Yup, Disneyland. She was part of Disneyland’s 50th Anniversary soiree in 2005 as well.
Her fomer Mouseketeer buddies could learn a thing or two from this diva.
