Artists discuss the 13 records that shaped their lives

7. Christina AguileraStripped

Stripped is another gay moment for me. I didn’t like the singles too much; ‘Beautiful’, ‘Can’t Hold Us Down’ with Lil Kim; but when i heard ‘Walk Away’ I was like: ‘oooo, this bitch can sing’. This is one of the first times I listened to an album of this kind of pop. It was always more hip0hop or R&B before. I was always interested in strong voices. Style aside, she does have a strong voice. I kind of like ‘Fighter’ but I was like: ‘what’s she sayin?" So much growling. But I like the album as a whole. ‘Dirty’ is obviously a classic. Just some gay shit, I dunno what else to say.
