and subsequently had main roles in Be Cool and the horror film Pulse. Milian had
a minor role in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, and starred as the lead role in the
straight-to-DVD film Bring It On: Fight to the Finish. On September 4, 2009,

Early life and Life Beginnings
Milian was born in Jersey City, New Jersey to Cuban parents Carmen Milian and
Don Flores. Named Christine Flores at birth, Milian changed her name and
adopted her mother's maiden name in the hopes of landing a wider range of acting
roles. The oldest of three sisters, including Danielle and Elizabeth, she
moved with her family to Waldorf, Maryland soon after her birth. Milian was only
four years old when she showed an interest in show business, and when her
family realized that she was a talented actress, she became determined to pursue
an entertainment career. As a child, Milian was "very imaginative and very
creative", and watching television and listening to the radio became her life.
They inspired her to have fun, and she convinced her parents that she "did not
want to be inside the TV", although it took some time to convince them. By
the time she was nine years old, Milian had begun auditioning with local talent
agencies, shot commercials for Wendy's and Honeycomb, and played the lead
role in the musical Annie. Milian's mother noticed her daughter's potential and
moved to Los Angeles with her three daughters when Milian was 13 years old.
Milian's father stayed in Maryland and divorced her mother soon after the
Milian describes her family as her "first, her last, her everything", and says
that although she got along with everyone as a child, she did not have many
friends. Acting at a young age, Milian says that "people knew about it. It was
the talk. Even the teachers were talking about it." When Milian moved to Los
Angeles, her only desire was to be an actress. She always wanted to be in the
record business, but did not know how to obtain a recording contract During this
time she met and dated actor Jerry Gaona, she was also a host for the Disney
Channel during this time. After living in Los Angeles for six months, Milian
moved into the same apartment complex as songwriter and producer Rodney
"Darkchild" Jerkins. Jerkins heard about Milian from a boy band he was working
with and once he heard her sing, they began working together. For a year and a
half, Milian went into a studio everyday and worked with Jerkins, which is where
she started meeting people in the record business. She began writing songs
at the age of 17 because she needed a demo to help her obtain a recording
contract. According to Milian, every time she recorded a song, the producer
would refuse to give her the demo, or would write lyrics that she did not agree
with. She felt that she had to write a song, record a demo, and send it out on
Christina Milian, Record deal and Minor Acting
Milian made her first professional musical appearance on rapper Ja Rule's second
studio album Rule 3:36 (2000), performing vocals on the song "Between Me and
You". The song was released as the album's lead single in 2000, peaking at
number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100, and in the top 30 of the UK Singles
Chart. Milian co-wrote and performed backing vocals for the track "Play" for
Jennifer Lopez's album J. Lo (2001), and co-wrote "Same Ol' Same Ol'", the first
single from girl group PYT's debut album PYT (Down with Me) (2001). Milian's
collaboration with Ja Rule led to a record deal with Def Soul Records, prompted
by his affiliation with Murder Inc. Records, an imprint of The. Inc Records that
was distributed through Def Jam, the parent label of Def Soul Records. She
travelled to Sweden and recorded her self-titled debut album. The album was
released on October 9, 2001 in the UK, peaking at number 23 and selling a
total of 101,986 copies. Internationally, the album peaked at number 36 in
the Netherlands, and number 98 in Sweden. The album's domestic release was
postponed because of the September 11 attacks, which occurred just two weeks
before its release date. Her label opted to release it later that year, in the
fourth quarter, but as Milian explained, new artists generally do not release
their albums during that time. As a result, the album was again delayed until
the first quarter of 2002; however, Milian eventually opted not to release
it. Two singles were taken from the album, "AM to PM" and "When You Look at
Me", both of which charted worldwide. A music video for the track "Get
Away" was filmed in Paris, although it was not officially released as a
The critical response to the album was mixed to generally positive. Imran Ahmed
of the New Musical Express predicted that based on the record, "genius can't be
more than a few albums away". Contrastingly, entertainment.ie writer Andrew
Lynch suggested that Milian needed original ideas. Milian believed that the
public expected "a certain thing" from her when she first appeared with Ja Rule,
however she wanted to record the type of music she was signed to do. She said
that "AM to PM" was a "cool record," but it was not what the public expected.
Milian approached the executives at her record company, Island Def Jam, and
"cussed them all out", telling them that they were not listening to her. She
felt that she had gained their respect by explaining that she was serious about
her musical career. In the following years, she was featured on the track
"It's All Gravy", a duet with British rapper Romeo, which was a UK top ten
hit; provided the theme song for the hit Disney series Kim Possible, "Call
Me, Beep Me!"; and collaborated with Hilary Duff on Duff's Christmas album
Santa Claus Lane (2002), on the song "I Heard Santa on the Radio".
Although Milian is best known for her singing career, she originally wanted
to be an actress. When asked whether she prefers singing or acting, Milian
said that "they're both my passion. But, honestly, if I had to choose, it would
probably be my music. I love writing. I love listening. I love the challenge of
it." Milian has also stated that she loves "performing live on the stage ...
above all else. It's my favorite."
Milian's first significant acting role was offered by the Disney Channel to join
The Mickey Mouse Club; however, she did not accept and opted to star as a
reporter on Movie Surfers. During this time, she had minor roles in film and
television, including Sister, Sister, Smart Guy, The Steve Harvey Show, Get
Real, The Wood and American Pie. In 2002, Milian was appointed the host of
the live competitive music series Wannabe on MTV, where she met director Joseph
Kahn. Kahn suggested she audition for a lead role in the film Torque. Her
audition was successful and she played a minor role in the film. She was
subsequently cast in her first lead role in Love Don't Cost a Thing. Milian
has been described as a role model to young girls; she has said that there are a
lot of people who young girls look up to, but "at the end of the day you have to
be your own person and love yourself." Milian worked with the Children
Uniting Nations charity, in which she was a big sister to foster children,
and says her favorite charity is the Penny Lane Foundation. Milian was
awarded with a humanitarian award at The Reign fundraiser from the Elton John
AIDS Foundation for being a role model for young children. Milian said, "I've
never been rewarded that way and never been acknowledged like that. That was
really nice of them, and I was happy I was able to show up for the kids."
Milian co-hosted The Reign event with Eric West and singer Mariah Carey, and
soon after, various media outlets reported that Milian was dating West. Both
denied they were dating, and Milian posted on her MySpace that she has no idea
who Eric West is.
It's About Time and Acting Debut
Milian felt that Island Def Jam was confused as to how they wanted her image to
be portrayed; one second she was young and singing "AM to PM", and next she was
a grown woman singing "Get Away". She realized that the change confused the
audience, and that "nobody was buying it". In 2003, Milian's label Def Soul
was shut down and absorbed by its parent Def Jam, although Milian was instead
moved over to Island Records. After the international release of her debut
album, Milian went back into the recording studio. The singer felt that music
trends had changed into rock music, hardcore hip hop and tribute songs, and her
music did not fall into those categories. Milian decided to stop recording and
toured overseas for a year and a half. When she returned to the US, she decided
not to release her previous album domestically, and started working on a new
album. Milian traveled the world, working with the popular producers
Bloodshy & Avant, "Darkchild", Cory Rooney, Warryn Campbell, Bryan-Michael Cox
and Polli Paul.
Milian's second studio album, It's About Time, was released on July 13, 2004 in
the US. The critical response to the album was mixed; the club tracks, most
notably lead single "Dip It Low", were praised while the ballads were said to be
disappointing. The style and sound of the album was compared to that of
Beyoncé Knowles and Jennifer Lopez by several critics. Milian later
admitted that her new sexy image for "Dip It Low" and the whole album was mainly
for shock value. She had to make her way back into the US market, and by
choosing a sexier image, she made a name for herself. "Dip It Low" was also
meant to show that she was not the same eighteen year old girl in the "AM to PM"
video. To create her new image, Milian also decided to change her appearance
and lightened her hair. Taking inspiration from Janet Jackson who constantly
changed her image, Milian thought to herself, "'When did I like Janet Jackson
the most?' It was when she had her lightened hair."
Milian believed that the album was more R&B when compared to her "bubble-gum"
pop debut album. The change was reflected in the album's lead single, "Dip It
Low", which was more of a club and R&B track than her previous pop release "AM
to PM". Milian performed as an opening act on the Usher and Kanye West tour
to promote her album. The album debuted and peaked at number 14 on the
Billboard 200 album chart and number 21 in the UK, selling a total of 382,000
and 63,708 copies respectively, and received a Grammy Award nomination
for "Best Contemporary R&B Album" in 2005. The album's first single, "Dip It
Low", became Milian's biggest hit to date, reaching number two in the UK and
number five in the US. The single was certified Gold by the RIAA for
digital sales, and earned a Grammy Award nomination for "Best Rap/Sung
Collaboration". The album's second and final single, "Whatever U Want",
featuring Joe Budden, failed to reprise the success of the lead single but
reached the top ten in the UK.
Milian starred in Be Cool, the sequel to Get Shorty, with John Travolta and Uma
Thurman, and recorded two songs for its soundtrack. She was then cast in
a lead role in the horror film Pulse, starring alongside Kristen Bell and Ian
Somerhalder. The film was a remake of the Japanese film Kairo (2001), and was
adapted by Wes Craven and Ray Wright. Filming took place in Romania, which
Milian said made for very rough conditions. Milian has also appeared in two
video games: Def Jam Vendetta (2003), where she plays Angel, a mob boss'
girlfriend, Milian met actor Nick Cannon on the set of their film, Love
Don't Cost a Thing, in 2003, and they began dating. After being together for
two and a half years, Milian ended her relationship with Cannon in 2005 when she
found out he was cheating on her. Cannon revealed that he refused to stay
faithful to Milian because their relationship was becoming too much like a
"Christian romance". When Cannon married Mariah Carey on April 30, 2008,
Milian said, "regardless of what I felt in the past at the time, I actually
forgive him and I'm very much over that."
So Amazin' and record departure
Whereas Milian's previous albums had pop stylings, she was encouraged by Island
Def Jam to target a new audience and release an urban record. Explaining the
change, Milian said that one of her main problems was that previous releases
would often find mainstream success, but would be relatively unsuccessful on
urban radio. As an R&B artist, she wanted to build her core audience–a true fan
base that would support her through time–to increase her career's longevity. The
main purpose of her genre change was to go back to the streets and add to her
core audience. To create a more urban record, Milian had a list of producers
that she wanted to work with. L.A. Reid suggested to Milian that she should
work with Cool & Dre, with whom she ended up working with as the first people to
start off the album. Although Milian was originally supposed to work with
several different music producers, she felt that the chemistry they had in the
first week was so "instant and real" that she felt she could not get a better
"vibe" with anybody else other than them. Milian ended up working with
Cool & Dre on the majority of the production of the album, producing ten of
the album's eleven tracks together. The album completed within a three month
period, whereas Milian's previous albums would take six months to a year.
Milian's third studio album, So Amazin', was released on May 16, 2006. The
album's lead single, "Say I", featured rapper Young Jeezy. The single saw
peak positions of number four in the UK, and number 21 in the US. So
Amazin' debuted and peaked at number eleven on the Billboard 200 albums
chart, selling 54,000 copies in its first week and 163,000 copies in
total. Internationally, the album peaked at number 55 on the Swiss
Albums Chart, 67 on the UK Albums Chart, and 139 on the France Albums Chart.
Reviews of So Amazin' were mixed; critics felt that while Milian claimed that
she was displaying the various sides of her personality, the album could "only
[scratch] the surface of who she really is." "Say I" was praised by
several critics, and was described as "instantly rousing" and
"intoxicating". In June 2006, Milian's representative confirmed that she
had left Island Def Jam. In an interview with Rap-Up, Milian revealed she
was dropped a week after her album was released. The singer believed it was a
"budget cut", and that Island Def Jam Music Group wanted to spend more money on
label mate Rihanna. She said, "it was embarrassing. It was a week after my album
got put out. I would be in my room a lot of the time crying by myself."
After leaving Def Jam, Milian released her first compilation album, The Best of
Christina Milian (2006).
After the production of So Amazin' in 2006, Milian began dating Andre Lyon from
the production group Cool & Dre. The pair dated until February 2009, when
they decided to go on a break. Milian said that they were still really close,
and decided to break up because it was "hard to grow together when you live on
two different coasts". The singer wanted to take more opportunities and learn
more about herself, which she often let go when in a relationship, but felt that
she was in a now-or-never situation. Milian described Lyon as an amazing guy,
and said that although there was a chance for the couple in the future, she
needed to focus on herself.
Dream in Color, Elope, marriage and motherhood
Following her departure from Island Def Jam Music Group, Milian signed with
MySpace Records in 2008. She began writing songs and recording in the studio
with numerous different producers, including Cool & Dre, J. R. Rotem, The
Runners, Danja, Madd Scientist, T-Pain, Jim Jonsin and Toby Gad. Milian
was featured on the cover of Rap-Up's 2008 Winter issue, in which she announced
that the album's title was Dream in Color. A single was released in October
2008, ballad "Us Against the World". It was written by Milian and produced by
Madd Scientist. The single, described by Milian as a "cinematic power ballad",
premiered via MySpace on October 6, 2008, and was made available by digital
download the next day. Milian felt that Madd Scientist "brought the best out
of me" while producing "Us Against the World", and "was really able to do some
amazing things with my vocals".
After recording songs with the aforementioned producers, Milian took a break
from music and started filming Bring It On: Fight to the Finish. When Milian
returned to music, she concentrated on promoting her single "Us Against the
World", and shot its music video. Since then, Milian said that she became "a
little bit more meticulous with what I feel deserved to be on the album", and
resumed recording. Songs recorded for the album included the 1990s
Madonna-styled ballad "Stay", Euro-club record "Tug of War" and the feel-good
song "Diamonds", which featured Kanye West. Other features included Rick
Ross on the Cool & Dre produced track "Blissful", and Pitbull. In early
2009, Milian began working with The-Dream, Tricky Stewart, and L.O.S. Da
Maestro, which led to her signing a deal with Radio Killa Records.
Milian revealed that aside from "Us Against the World", The-Dream and Tricky
Stewart would be producing all the songs on her album. In March 2009, Milian
changed the album's title to Elope. Regarding the album's title change, Milian
explained, "the definition of elope is to run away secretly with one's beloved.
This next album is about taking responsibility for yourself and making your own
decisions." In June 2009, The-Dream said that the album was finished.
Upon completion of the album, Milian said it represented "independence, not
having to answer to any type of 'authority', being a woman at her best and
feeling very confident". She said that fans could expect an "edgy sound with
lots of strong powerful anthems. Big up tempos, R&B and Pop at it's [sic] best
and two big ballads". In August 2009, Milian confirmed that she had signed a
deal to release Elope through Interscope Records, with a 2010 release date.
Originally scheduled to be released in 2009, Tricky Stewart explained the delay,
saying "we just got our label deals done, so the reason why some of these
projects got delayed had to do with technicalities and things of that nature".
The album has been furthered delayed because of Milian's marriage to The-Dream
and her pregnancy. In January 2010, Milian said that she was going back into
the studio in the summer to record more material. Although the album had already
been finished when Milian took a break for her pregnancy, she wanted to "go back
and re-do some of the music and make some new songs and find my new
inspiration". In October 2009, Tricky Stewart said that another single
had yet to be chosen, and that it would be the first single off Elope.
Reported choices for the first single include "Zipper", "I'm a Cheat", and
Milian starred as the main character in the Christmas television movie for the
ABC Family channel entitled Snowglobe, alongside Lorraine Bracco. She was to
be a leading character in The CW's new show Eight Days a Week as Olivia,
alongside Mario Lopez, but The CW decided not to pick up the series due to
the Writers Guild of America strike. Milian had a minor role in Ghosts of
Girlfriends Past alongside Matthew McConaughey, and starred as the lead role
in the straight-to-DVD film Bring It On: Fight to the Finish. and as one of
the female leads, Carmen Mendez, in the video game Need for Speed: Undercover
In February 2009, reports emerged that Milian was dating Nicholas Turman.
Dre said that he supported Milian's relationship with Nicholas Turman, "I think
it's gonna be a good fit for her". He stated that he had "nothing but love for
her and her family", and that he "wish[ed] her the best and we're definitely
looking forward to what she's got going on". In late May 2009, it was
reported that Milian and Nicholas Turman were getting married, and the
couple celebrated their engagement party in Las Vegas in June. On September
4, 2009, Milian and Nicholas Turman eloped at the Little White Chapel in Las
Vegas, Nevada. MTV reported that Milian and Nicholas Turman would get
married again in Rome, Italy, and then renew their vows in the US in front of
family and friends. On September 11, 2009, it was announced that Milian and
Nicholas Turman were expecting their first child together. The Daily Mail
reported that "the pregnancy was a surprise, but they were getting married
regardless". On February 26, 2010, Milian gave birth to their daughter
Violet Madison Nash, who had "a full head of hair." Violet was Milian's first
child, and the fourth for Nicholas Turman, who had three children with ex-wife
Draya Michelle. In July

Milian and The-Dream continued to "work together and write together". At the
2010 Los Angeles Fashion Week, Milian performed "Zipper" and "Dip It Low".
Milian has worked on a fourth studio album since 2008, but its release has

Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming at NBC said:
“Christina’s extensive musical background and widespread recognition make her
the perfect choice for the role of Social Media Correspondent on ‘The Voice’.
Her experience as a singer will provide a comfort level to our artists when they
speak to her about the ins and outs of the competition. She is a hugely valuable
addition as we prepare for another spectacular season.”
On February 12, 2012, Lil' Wayne said that Christina Milian had joined Young
Money, and will release her fourth album through Young Money Entertainment. The
next day, a song titled "Mr. Valentine" leaked onto the internet. Milian
told Carson Daly on 97.1 AMP Radio. “Yeah, I’ve signed with Young Money. It was
pretty awesome. This weekend we had a big party, a big YMCMB party, and Drake
was performing and we were all up on the stage and Wayne got up there and he
announced it himself. And so I was kind of surprised and I was like, ‘Oh my
gosh, this is awesome!’” Milian is currently recording her fourth album. “We’re
just getting started on it,” she said. “I’ve already halfway gotten there and
when my mom and I went to Wayne and we played him some of the music, off the
second song, he was like, ‘I love it. Let’s do this deal.’ I have some music
that’s already going to be on it and the second half I’m working with them now.”
"When they did a little background check, they saw even the songwriting, all
that kind of stuff adds on top of, alright, she’s an actress, she’s a pretty
face, she can actually sing, but not to mention she’s a songwriter. I thought
that was cool that they even saw that.” “They all get on each other’s records,
so all I have to do is be home with everybody and we’ll just do lots of
In February 2010, it was announced that Milian had signed an Australian music
