Born: 18th December 1980, Staten Island, New York, U.S.
Writer Des Devlin re-worked one of Christina Aguilera's early hits, "What A Girl Wants," for this segment of "Totally Repulsed Live," a parody of MTV's "Total Request Live" that ran in MAD #399 (November '00).
There's no denying her singing chops but occasionally the vocal gymnastics have me agreeing with Russ Cooper's assessment of Christina Aguilera's early work. Rick Tulka caricatured her for "Instant Music Reviews," which ran in MAD #404 (May '01).
Rivalry? What rivalry? John Cuneo caricatured Christina Aguilera for the Dave Croatto two-pager "Hidden In The Liner Notes" (MAD #419, July '02). The gag on the facing page featured Britney Spears liner notes that suggested she wished Aguilera nothing but the best and hoped she would get help "for the eating disorder she's obviously hiding."
Believe it or not, Christina Aguilera is among a very small list of public figures who have appeared on two consecutive MAD covers. Here she is on Scott Bricher's cover for MAD #433 (September '03), and - as mentioned in the previous image - she made a cameo on Mark Fredrickson's cover for MAD #434 (October '03). Aguilera also showed up in Bricher's Sgt. Pepper-inspired mob shot for the "50 Worst Things About Music" cover of MAD #420 (August '02).
Hermann Mejia's caricature of Christina Aguilera not only landed in the Des Devlin-Frank Jacobs collaboration "MAD's Deck of Least-Wanted Americans" (#434, September '03), it also wound up on the front cover, which depicted a Mark Fredrickson-rendered Alfred unsuccessfully flipping his way through the deck.
