Where were you when you first heard “Genie in a Bottle”? If you’re a Christina Aguilera fan, you can probably recall that very moment ? and many others throughout her career ? when her star power truly spoke to you.
Here at VH1, we have been following her career since those very early days, which is why we?re so thrilled to have her on tap for the next chapter of VH1 Storytellers: Christina Aguilera. Now, here’s the part where YOU come in. Share your own story with us about the Christina Aguilera songs you love most, and your video or written submission may become part of the Storytellers legacy and make their way into the program, which premieres on June 13!
Was an Xtina song ever your anthem? With so many amazing hits and videos to choose from, we’re guessing that there has to be at least one that holds special meaning for you. Did the self confidence-building mantra from “Beautiful” lift your spirits when you were down? Did you stay strong after a bad breakup because “Fighter? helped to pull you through? Did ?Ain?t No Other Man? make you realize how much you loved that someone special in your life? Let us know!
For me, it was the one-two punch of controversial ?Dirrty? and ?Can?t Hold Us Down? that hit home most. With the support of Lil? Kim, Xtina looked society?s double standards dead in the eye and proclaimed, “Enough!” Her message was empowering because it allowed women to see beyond the media?s idea of how they should conduct themselves and, instead, encourage women to stay true to themselves and their own personal style. A gift like that is priceless. And, of course, who could forget the chaps she wore?
So what are you waiting for? Head over to storytellers.vh1.com, where you can share your own Christina stories either by uploading a video or via the written word. Don?t hold back, either — we want you to fully express yourself, dish the details, and share memories that made you come to love Xtina.
