Timberlake, Aguilera Prove They’re Grown-Up

Joan Anderman of Boston Daily Globe reviewed and Justin Timberlake’s Justified and Stripped Tour stop at FleetCenter on Tuesday night (August 5). She said of the *NSYNC star, “For all his estimable polish and well-learned licks, Timberlake in the end came off as candy — a semihip pop tart whose glowing resume has more to do with good taste and good luck than artistic depth and breadth.” As for Aguilera, she added, “This girl can sing. She sings with God-given pipes and real heart. It’s a heart that’s been broken, and not by a high-school sweetheart. Beneath the soft-porn veneer ‘Stripped’ is a revealing chronicle of an abusive childhood and a remarkably clear-eyed portrait of an artist, one who has the talent and fortitude to transcend whatever life and music-handlers toss her way.”

    Yeah Christina Aguilera is one of the best singer out there. She need a song that can really show her vocal chord like I will always love you or something like that but she still very talented.

The Human Beat Box was outstanding.. but his lip started to fall off!! As for Aguilera, “This girl can suck. She sucks with God-given mouth and real heart. It’s a heart that’s craving for sex, not from guys only, girls too.” LMAO! Hee Haw

    I agree with this article 100%, behind the fiasco of “DIRRTY”, is a painful CD detailing of a Broken heart, a f-ed up relationship, and a abusive father and the fight for self-worth. Stripped is a masterpiece. I was completely shocked when I heard this CD, how did she do it, how the hell did this 22 year old put together a CD that out-weighs anything Madonna, Celine, Whitney, Britney, Gloria, Shania have done in the last 10 years.

    Christina Aguilera has a voice with a heart. You can tell that with her eye-point-of-view ballads that truly opens the outlet of her life with the social abuse she suffered because of her talent, and the power and the unity she has achieved through this point of her life where she’s being “STRIPPED” from the image she didn’t like, and truly showing the real Christina. She sings with a heart that hasn’t been broken by a high school crush, but by silence, or something that involved with disrespect of one’s beauty. She sings to speak for gays, for girls that are troubled and uncomfortable with their looks, and for people that are misunderstood or different, and shines a new light for them. She brings so much exception to everyone. It’s a joy of issue that’s quite rare in a pop artists. She has her say in her music (unlike Britney Spears who seems to have no say in anything but her image), and speaks her mind with no regrets. She’s a beautiful person and truly a very emotional, growing human being.
