Christina wasn't afraid of getting down, dirty*, and sexy and unapologetically showed that women can do whatever the fuck they want.
But these aren't the only reasons why Stripped is so goddamn iconic. The album also touched on important emotional and societal issues – like the domestic violence she experienced and witnessed as a kid in "I'm OK"...
... and the emotional manipulation she faced in a previous relationship in "Walk Away".
And then came songs like "Fighter", the powerful anthem to help anyone get back on track...
... and of course "Beautiful" with the overall message that it's OK to be different.
And when people came to criticise her about her "promiscuous" image she wasn't having a bar of it.
Oh, let's not forget the interlude, "Stripped Pt. 2".
Legendtina, thank you from the bottom of my heart, for the blessing that was Stripped.
Now no pressure or anything, but I'll just sit here and wait for the next release.
