On October 29 (2002), exactly 15 years ago, @xtina released “Stripped” - I was 12 when this album came out. Since the day I saw the "Dirrty" music video I was completely in love.
That same year, on christmas, my brother gave me "Stripped" as a gift, it was my first CD (he always encouraged me to listen to and buy music CDs, even if it was not the kind of music he liked).
At that time I was dealing with problems at school and also at home, bullying, my parents getting divorced, it was too much for a 12 year old kid and "Stripped" just became my shelter.
My Discman (yep, Discman!) was always with me. "Stripped" taught me to be myself, showed me a different world, made me grow, made me stronger... so I want to say, “thanks for making me a fighter”. I wouldn't be the person I am today without this record. ♥️ #christinaaguileracollection
