True to its title, 'Stripped', the audacious new album from Christina Aguilera, strips away the last remnants of her previous teen idol persona, and what's left is as real as it gets. The sixteen new tracks that comprise 'Stripped', including the sensational single, 'Dirrty', showcase an unadorned, unfettered and fearlessly outspoken artist who has liberated herself, her soul and her music on an album that is as much a declaration of independence as it is a convincing demonstration of her fierce and original talent. Simply put, this is the real deal.
"When you're seventeen, you're green. I fell into something that wasn't quite me. Being twenty-one now, I've grown into more of what I feel like as a woman. This record is definitely my baby ... I wanted to make a record that was about me completely. Nothing superficial, no hype, no gloss" - Christina Aguilera
