CHRISTINA AGUILERA: NATIONAL BESTSELLER - It is the first and the best analytical, serious and uncensored look at Christina's life and her rise to the pinnacle of the pop world. A controversial and elusive figure, Christina Aguilera has polarized and mesmerized audiences since the beginning. While fans praise her sultry, soulful voice, other artists, including Eminem have openly proclaimed their dislike of her; and her idol, Mariah Carey, refused to talk to her. Love her or hate her, Christina's success is without precedent. Millions and millions of her albums sold worldwide. It seems that everything she touches turns platinum. In Christina Aguilera: A Star is Made, author Pier Dominguez traces the construction of a 21st century star and provides a shrewd, psychological portrait - the first analytical look at her life and rise to the pinnacle of the pop world. This biography reveals Christina Aguilera in a most intimate light, chronicling her early years, exploring her motivations and tracing the development of her career. It strips away the media hoopla and exposes the Real Christina. Christina Aguilera: A Star is Made gives you all the details about how Christina fled her abusive father at age 5; cut out her first manager and later refused to give her credit; dropped her first boyfriend as her fame was reaching its most glorious crescendo; became the puppet of her record label, which attempted to downplay her ethnicity and helped her keep her romantic life secret and fired the manager who took her to the top of the charts. After an almost two-year hiatus, and after having her stardom carefully constructed by the RCA label, Christina has come back with an album; that is almost entirely her own creation. PHOTOS
