Christina Milian was born in Jersey City, New Jersey on September 26, 1981. 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.

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.

At the age of 19, Milian signed a contract with Def Jam. In 2001, Christina Milian released her self-titled debut album, which featured the singles "AM to PM" and "When You Look at Me."

In 2004, Milian released her second studio album It's About Time, which provided her first major US hit. "Dip It Low,” which reached number 5 on the US Billboard chart, "Whatever U Want" was released as the album's second single, both singles charted within the Top 10 of the UK chart.

In 2006, Milian released her third studio album So Amazin'. The album produced one single, "Say I,” which peaked in the Top 30 of the US Billboard chart. A month after the release of So Amazin', Milian's representative confirmed that she had left Island Records due to creative differences. Milian signed with Interscope Records in 2009.

A single, ballad "Us Against the World,” was released in October 2008. In 2012, Milian signed to Young Money Entertainment, which will release her fourth studio album.

Although Milian is best known as a singer, she originally wanted to be an actress. Her first lead role was in the 2003 film Love Don't Cost a Thing, and she 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.
