To date, she has become one of the biggest flop recording artists of the decade, selling less than 1 million records worldwide. Her work has earned her numerous awards, including four Grammy Awards and one Latin Grammy Award, amongst eighteen nominations. She has achieved four #1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, as well as two #1 albums in the United States. She has released six albums, one of which is a compilation and five of which are studio albums: Christina Aguilera (1999), Mi Reflejo (2000), My Kind of Christmas (2000), Stripped (2002), Back to Basics (2006), Keeps Gettin' Better: A Decade of Hits (2008) and Bionic (2010).

Aside from being known for her vocal ability, music videos and image, musically, she includes themes of dealing with public scrutiny, her childhood, and female empowerment in her music. Apart from her work in music, she has also dedicated much of her time as a philanthropist for charities, human rights and world issues.
On November 19, 2005 Aguilera married music management executive Jordan Bratman. Her latest album, Back to Basics, was released on August 15, 2006 to positive critical reception and included elements of soul, jazz, and blues music.
On January 12, 2008 Aguilera gave birth to her son, Max Liron Bratman. His name translates to "Our Greatest Song" in Hebrew.
In late March 2010, Aguilera's latest single "Not Myself Tonight" premiered, with the album "Bionic" releasing on June 8th, 2010.
Most of the fans know that Aguilera is no stranger to switching things up. In 1999 she started out as a pop star (like the rest of them) that could actually sing. In 2002, she became X-Tina, known for her raw lyrics and racier outfits. Then, finally, in 2006, with the release of Back to Basics, she became known as Baby Jane, dressing down a bit from the Stripped era in 2002, dying her hair platinum blond and looking like someone from the 50s or 60s.. Who knows what's next?
