Favorite Christina Aguilera Music Video – Readers Poll
Christina Aguilera has a ton of clips within her vast videography, which spans all the way from her career beginning’s with ‘Genie in a Bottle’ up until the present day with ‘Your Body.’ In honor of the songstress’ knack for creating captivating clips, and to celebrate her 32nd birthday today (Dec. 18), we want all of Xtina’s fans to weigh in on the best music video from the ‘Voice‘ coach.
In 1999, Ms. Aguilera made her breakthrough with ‘Genie in a Bottle,’ and the accompanying clip introduced us to the sexy little songstress with seductive beach shots. Every girl in the world was also jealous of her orange pants and midriff-bearing, beaded top. She followed up the success with her chart-topping singles ‘What a Girl Wants‘ and ‘Come on Over Baby (All I Want Is You),’ and with them came some colorful, choreographed, uber ’90s clips that make us feel nostalgic.
‘I Turn to You‘ hit the airwaves next, with Aguilera singing into the camera as a mother-daughter relationship is tested in a separate storyline. Xtina’s collaborative clip for ‘Lady Marmlade,’ which she recorded with Mya, Pink and Lil Kim, followed, and the sexed-up, dressed-down video is still one of the most memorable from that time period. Aguilera kept the doses of carnal knowledge coming with ‘Dirrty,’ the video where Aguilera takes over a depraved nightclub and boxes in a–less chaps. Too hot for TV almost!
After ditching her booty-bearing ‘Dirrty’ pants, Aguilera got a little darker for her ‘Beautiful‘ and ‘Fighter‘ videos, but in very different ways — ‘Beautiful’ tells the heart-wrenching stories of young people who are trying to overcome disease, prejudice and hatred, while ‘Fighter’ totally creeps us out with its freaky, transformative costumes and horror movie-esque scenery.
Meanwhile, the vocalist kept her black locks but ditched the somber themes for ‘Can’t Hold Us Down,’ an ’80s-themed clip that finds Aguilera and Lil Kim shooting down cat-callers and partying it up on the Lower East Side. The raven-haired songstress also released ‘The Voice Within‘ around this time, a simple, black-and-white clip that finds a scantily clad Aguilera singing into the camera within a dilapidated warehouse.
In 2006, Christina Aguilera went ‘Back to Basics’ and back to blonde with her super fun, retro videos for ‘Ain’t No Other Man‘ and ‘Candyman,’ which find Aguilera portraying a glam, old Hollywood chanteuse and a series of sexy USO entertainers circa WWII, respectively. She kept up the vintage vibe for ‘Hurt,’ where viewers follow the beautiful Aguilera to a traveling circus some time in the ’30s.
Finally, in more recent years, Aguilera has churned out a handful of videos. ‘Keeps Gettin’ Better,’ which appeared on her ‘Decade of Hits’ compilation LP, finds Aguilera playing a mad scientist and a series of buxom, mechanically-engineered super babes. And while she was criticized for ripping off shock-pop stars like Lady Gaga for ‘Not Myself Tonight,’ the first single off of her ill-fated ‘Bionic’ album, she looks utterly fantastic in her glittery bondage gear and couture lingerie. Then there’s ‘Your Body,’ the 2012 video where the multi-colored Aguilera has an insatiable taste for men and murder.
