Ever since Christina Aguilera started her career on the Mickey Mouse Club in 1993 and made her solo singing debut with “Reflection” from the Mulan soundtrack in 1998, she’s been a chart-topping, Grammy-winning pop music icon.

Of course, Aguilera went on to release the No. 1 hit single “Genie in a Bottle” from her self-titled debut album, the first of her five total No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 so far. Beyond her immense success in music, Xtina also stars in the cult favorite film Burlesque.

As Burlesque finds additional success on Netflix with its March 2023 return to Netflix, fans new and old are looking to reacquaint themselves with its iconic leading star. What is Aguilera’s net worth, how many records has she sold, and how old was she when she starred as Ali? We’re sharing everything you need to know about the singer-songwriter and actress!

What is Christina Aguilera’s net worth?

For six seasons, Aguilera starred in the NBC singing competition series The Voice as one of the four original coaches. She appeared in seasons 1-3, 5, 8, and 10 and reportedly made a then-groundbreaking $17 million salary, though later made $12.5 million for later seasons.

Is Christina Aguilera Latina?

Yes, Aguilera is Latina. She’s half Ecuadorian on her father’s side, as her father Fausto Aguilera was born in Ecuador. While she’s not a fluent Spanish speaker and ethnically Latina, she’s racially white with her signature platinum blonde hair and striking bright blue eyes, which may cause people to dismiss her Latin heritage.
