lead role in the musical Annie before moving to Los Angeles,
California at 13 to pursue an acting career; Her father didn't move

Acting career
Milian's first significant role was as a reporter on the Disney

this role, she also appeared in minor roles in the movies A Bug's
Life and American Pie and in guest appearances on the television
series Charmed, Clueless, Get Real, and The Amanda Show.

In 2002, Milian was appointed to host of the television show

Wannabes who suggested she audition for a lead role in the film
Torque opposite Ice Cube. Her audition was successful leading in
turn to a lead role in Love Don't Cost a Thing in 2003. In 2005, she
had roles in the films Man of the House opposite Tommy Lee Jones and
Be Cool with John Travolta and Uma Thurman.

Music career
It's About Time (2004) In 2000, Milian performed vocals on Ja Rule's
song Between Me and You from his album Rule. The song became a hit
building her reputation as a singer. She also co-wrote and provided
extensive backing vocals for the track "Play" for Jennifer
Lopez's 2001 album J. Lo which became another big hit, and co-wrote
"Same Ol' Same Ol", the first single from girl group PYT's
album Down With Me.

In 2001, Milian released her first solo single, "AM To
PM", off her self-titled debut album. It became a worldwide hit
reaching the top 5 in the UK and Denmark, top 10 in the Netherlands,
and top 40 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and in Australia. The
success of "AM To PM" sparked the international release of
the Christina Milian album, although not in the U.S. The second
single "When You Look At Me" was another international hit
reaching the top 5 in the UK, Netherlands, and Ireland and making
the top 40 in Denmark, Australia, and France. She was also featured
on the track "It's All Gravy", a duet with Romeo of the
garage group So Solid Crew. It was another UK top ten hit single in
2002. She also wrote and sang the theme song for the Disney series
Kim Possible, "Call Me Beep Me" later that year.

So Amazin (2006) In 2003, Milian recorded songs for her first U.S.
album, It's About Time, which is a reference to how long it had
taken for one of her albums to be released in the U.S. The first
single, "Dip It Low", was written by Polli Paul, who has
also written songs for the Black Eyed Peas. The first single reached
#1 on a world composite dance chart (compiled on data from the U.S.,
UK, Germany, Japan, Italy, and Australia), #2 in the UK, #5 in the
U.S., and the top 40 in Australia. The second single, "Whatever
U Want", features Joe Budden and once again reached the top 10
in the UK as well as charting on the Billboard Hot 100. Controversy
occurred when Milian changed her look when the album was released.
Many people saw it as her trying to look more like Beyonc Knowles
who had a similar look. All of this has been looked at as a
coincedence by Milian.

Her third album So Amazin' is scheduled for a May release. The
entire production was done by Cool & Dre, with additional help
from Rich Harrison. The record's first single Say I has been
released in March as a single and video; it features Young Jeezy.
The single currently is on his latest mixtape, "Can't Ban the
Snowman, and is having success within the mixtape scene causing many
DJ's to place it on their compilations too ("Southern
Smoke"). Two confirmed tracks,Gonna Tell Everybody and Who's
Gonna Ride featuring Three 6 Mafiaand Lil Wayne will appear on her
third album So Amazin'. According to MTV, Christina recored a track
dissing her ex-boyfriend. It was due to the reason they broke up.
Nick says even though the track was recorded, he still considers
being her friend.

Personal life
In the summer of 2005, Milian broke up with actor Nick Cannon after
being together for nearly two & a half years. In an interview
with Angie Martinez, she spoke about how she found out about Cannon
cheating on her. Apparently while she was away filming a movie in
Romania, she attempted to log in to his T-Mobile.com account by
entering in random passwords. After lucking out with one of the
passwords, she was able to read all of the messages he sent out and
received to and from other women. When she returned back to the
states, she decided to play it cool before hitting him with the news
that she knew he was cheating.

Weeks after their break up, Milian was spotted with actor Eric West
during New York's Olympus Fashion Week leading to many claims that
the two are dating. Eric confirmed on American radio station Y100
that the two are just friends. The New York Daily News claims she is
now dating hip-hop producer Dre.
