From a recent interview with MTV News:  MTV: “Why don’t you begin by telling a little about yourself.”

Christina Aguilera: “I was born in Staten Island, New York. But I call my hometown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, because that’s basically where I ended up from age eight on. But right after Staten Island… I’ve lived everywhere from Texas, to Japan for three years, to New Jersey. I’m this traveling girl. My father was in the Army, so I guess I’m an Army brat.”
