More Christina Milian Bios & Profiles
Biography #2 (for Love Don't Cost A Thing)Born to Cuban-native parents in New Jersey and raised in Waldorf, Maryland, Christina Milian amassed an extensive resume at an early age. She landed a role in the musical theater play Annie Warbucks, and later became a junior journalist on the Disney Channel's Movie Surfers, all before she was a teenager.
Before igniting her musical journey, Milian appeared as a guest on several TV shows, such as Clueless; Sister, Sister; Smart Guy; Charmed; The Steve Harvey Show; and as a recurring character on Get Real. She also voiced a character in the animated film A Bug's Life, and made an appearance in the film The Wood starring Taye Diggs. Milian can also be seen as the host of MTV's hot show Becoming Presents: Wannabes.
But it was the song she wrote for Ja Rule, Between Me and You, that thrust Milian into the spotlight. When listeners caught a glimpse of R&B's next big thing, they sat up and took notice. Milian's talent for songwriting was noticed by Jennifer Lopez, and Milian later went on to co-write Lopez's hit Play, off her immensely successful 2001 album J.Lo.
Milian's energetic personality came across on her own first self-titled debut album that teamed her with production wizards Jermaine Dupri (A Girl Like Me) and hot up-and-comer Bloodshy. Island Def Jam Records is scheduled to release Milian's highly anticipated newest album, It's About Time, in March 2004.
Milian can next be seen in the Warner Bros. Pictures film Torque with Ice Cube and Jay Hernandez, and is currently in production on the Tommy Lee Jones comedy Cheer Up, to be released in 2004.
