Paul Croughton of Arena magazine was on hand for Christina Aguilera’s ‘Back To Basics’ media launch, and wasn’t impressed with the singer’s smell. “She’s tiny. Big heels, white calf-length jeans, tank top, white vest, Fifties blonde ‘do’, lots of lipstick: hot,” he writes. “But my God she stunk like a 12-year-old girl’s bedroom on school-disco night. Why do women do that? It was a perfectly pleasant smell, you understand, but unnecessarily pungent – you could practically see the fog of eau de parfum that surrounded her, like mosquitoes at twilight, through the spotlights on stage.”
