Christina Aguilera may have settled into a cushy position as a judge on NBC's "The Voice," but the 31-year-old singer wasn't always so family-friendly. The former "Mickey Mouse" star appeared alongside Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears as a young teenager in the early '90s and has weathered her fair share of controversies since. Provocative attire? Check. Flubbing the National Anthem? Check. Mysterious, is-that-tanning-spray accidents? Check, check and check.
But one thing's for sure: through it all, Aguilera's biggest offense has always been her astonishing voice. On the weekend before the pop diva drops her seventh studio album, "Lotus," Aguilera has wedged herself firmly into the history of American music and pop culture consciousness more than ever. Take a look through the slideshow below to see the woman better known as Xtina's most outrageous moments.
"Genie in the Bottle"
Christina releases "Genie in the Bottle" at age 19. The song's lyrics of "My body's saying let's go... but my heart is saying no," and "rub me the right way" had some parents concerned that the song was encouraging teenage sex.
Christina "strips" herself of her pop soda image by undergoing some serious new hair and spray tan around the time she released 2002's album, "Stripped." She also begins to refer to herself as "Xtina."
Who can forget the singer's shocking chaps-and-not-much-else attire for the<a href="http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x15swc_christina-aguilera-dirrty_music"> music video</a> of "Dirrty," the lead single off "Stripped"?
2003 MTV VMAs
Much ado was made about Britney Spears' snog with Madonna at the MTV Video Music Awards, but Christina Aguilera shared an onstage kiss too. The trio were performing "Like a Virgin" in tribute to Madonna.
2011 Super Bowl
Even singing greats can mess up time to time. <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/02/06/super-bowl-2011-national-anthem-singer-christina-aguilera_n_819311.html">Christina famously forgot the lyrics</a> to the National Anthem, belting out "Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight, what so proudly we watched at the twilight's last reaming." The song's proper lyrics are: "Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight, o'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming."
Michael Jackson Tribute
Surely, Christina's had better hair days than this one, at <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/10/10/christina-aguilera-looks-rough-at-michael-jackson-concert_n_1003347.html">Michael Jackson's tribute performance</a> in October 2011.
Etta James' Funeral
The singer sounded gorgeous while<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TO7XywZSZdc"> singing a powerful rendition of "At Last" </a>at the music legend's funeral in early January 2012. But what. was. that. dripping down her leg?
Christina's near-wardrobe malfunction while performing with her mentee Chris Mann was more distracting than it was encouraging on last spring's season of "The Voice."
