Ruth Ann Daily of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette weighed in on Christina Aguilera after the singer visited the Women’s Center and Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh, donating $200,000.

Her monetary gift will immediately change some women’s and children’s lives for the better, but disavowing the degrading lyrics and images she has lately been selling would be a gift with a reach far beyond Pittsburgh. Perhaps in this new year, new wisdom will lead her to put her mouth where her money is.”
