Product description

Synopsis

It is the first analytical, serious and uncensored look at Christina's life and her rise to the pinnacle of the pop world. A controversial and elusive figure, Christina Aguilera has polarised and mesmerized audiences since the beginning. While fans praise her sultry, soulful voice, a growing contingent of detractors finds her whole persona tacky. Even other artists, including Eminem have openly proclaimed their dislike of her; and her idol, Mariah Carey, refused to talk to her. Love her or hate her, Christina's success is without precedent. Millions and millions of her albums sold worldwide. It seems that everything she touches turns platinum. Author Pier Dominguez traces the construction of a 21st century star and provides a shrewd, psychological portrait - the first analytical look at her life and rise to the pinnacle of the pop world.This biography reveals Christina Aguilera in a most intimate light, chronicling her early years, exploring her motivations and tracing the development of her career. It strips away the media hoopla and exposes the Real Christina.

"Christina Aguilera: A Star is Made" gives you all the details about how Christina fled her abusive father at age 5; cut out her first manager and later refused to give her credit; dropped her first boyfriend as her fame was reaching its most glorious crescendo; became the puppet of her record label, which attempted to downplay her ethnicity and helped her keep her romantic life secret and fired the manager who took her to the top of the charts. After an almost two-year hiatus, and after having her stardom carefully constructed by the RCA label, Christina has come back with an album "Stripped" that is almost entirely her own creation. The question Dominguez provocatively poses is, Will she shine as brightly on her own?

About the Author

When he wrote Christina Aguilera author Pier Dominguez was a nineteen-year-old student/journalist who covered the music and entertainment news for the University of Missouri's award-winning student newspaper. He has a burning desire to make it coupled with a clear vision of success.  Pier's first book Amy Fisher: Anatomy of a Scandal - the Definitive Biography on the Amy Fisher "Long Island Lolita" Story was published when he was only seventeen years old. However, his work ethic and success started long before either of his books was published. Raised in Barranquilla, Colombia, Pier attended the American-run Karl C. Parris High School, where he graduated fifth in his class.Pier's SAT II test ranked him in the 98 percentile, allowing him to become a National Hispanic Recognition Scholar.His meticulousness, along with his indefatigable energy and fine writing skills were qualities that secured the nineteen year old broadcast journalism major a publishing deal with Amber / Colossus Books.
