This genie has a new bottle. Christina Aguilera has purchased a new home, but the question is, Will she actually move in? In 2001 the singer shelled out about $2.75 million for a house in the gated community that claims Tom Arnold and Brian Wilson as residents, but never crossed the threshold. She sold the property this year, and set her sights on this 4,500-square-foot home, which she leased before buying. Built in 1953, the new digs include a library, a gourmet kitchen, and a gym. The abode’s best feature, says one real estate source, is the ”spectacular view” of the city and ocean. Could L.A.’s notoriously smoggy skyline be the real inspiration for Aguilera’s new single ”Dirrty”?
