Christina Aguilera - Stripped - Controversial Album Cover

Posted by Matt Lehman on Nov 27th 2023

Christina Aguilera - Stripped 

It was released on October 22, 2002. This was her second studio album and she was looking to breakout from the Teen pop Disney star into a serious sex-goddess. This album also introduced her alter ego - Xtina.

The Photographer was Miranda Penn Turin - She took the cover shots for Jody Watley, Paul Westerberg. Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, and even Tori Amos.

Linda Perry Produced, composed, and wrote 4 tracks on this album.

This album cover was altered, or more correctly - poorly photoshopped before it was allowed to be released in Saudi Arabia.and 6 tracks were also removed.

Originally when I started this series a long time ago and this record made the list because it was more of an asterisk or humourous addition because of the bad photoshop job on the cover or that they removed 6 tracks from the album, because at the time this series was created I thought we had or were moving forward from this type of oppression but it appears we are slip sliding away.

Other Artists altered by Saudia Arabia, or the Arab states include but are not limited to; Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Shakira, Ariana Grande, Mariah Carey Billie Eilish
