At 32 years old, Christina Aguilera is more Beautiful than ever!
The Voice coach, who gained fame in the 1990s on The Mickey Mouse Club and later became an international star in 1999 with the release of her debut studio album, Christina Aguilera, is celebrating her special day, and RadarOnline.com is feting the superstar by bringing you photos of her transformation throughout the years.
Her first big break occurred in 1998, when her song, Reflection was featured in the animated movie Mulan and was subsequently nominated for a Golden Globe Award.
In 1999, her self-titled debut album was released, with Genie in a Bottle, as well as several other songs on the album, reaching number one on the Billboard Charts. Aguilera also scored a Grammy Award for Best New Artist.
After releasing a Latin album and collaborating with Lil’ Kim, Mya and Pink for the hit song Lady Marmalade, the pop star decided to switch up her image from pop tartlet to dirty girl, releasing Stripped in 2002.
After a few years of her edgy look and several hit songs later, Aguilera transformed into an old Hollywood bombshell for her next role, wife and mother, marrying music executive Jordan Bratman in 2005 and welcoming their first child, Max, in 2008.
Aguilera released her fifth album, Back to Basics, in 2006, which featured the hit song Ain’t No Other Man and scored several awards.
2010 was a big year for Aguilera, who released her sixth album Bionic and also starred in her first blockbuster movie, Burlesque, which was a commercial failure. She also split from Bratman and immediately started dating a production assistant from her movie, Matt Rutler.
Christina, who had maintained a clean image for several years, seemingly went off the rails around this time and was photographed looking really drunk leaving nightclubs and even got into trouble with the law on a wild night out with her beau.
Aguilera scored her judging gig on The Voice in 2011, collaborating with Adam Levine on the hit song Moves Like Jagger, which became one of the best selling singles of all time. Around the same time, she started adding swerve to her curves, getting blasted by the media for her fuller figure.
Aguilera released her latest album, Lotus, in November 2012.
