Here’s the sitch:
Over her career, Christina Milian has worked with everyone from Matthew McConaughey to Kanye West, starring in movies, releasing hit albums and even singing the “Kim Possible” theme song. Now, the singer is making a comeback! Well … sort of: “I mean, I never really left to be honest with you,” Milian said in a recent interview. “I’ve always been in the studio. I think it’s the business that technically we’re talking about a comeback.”
As part of her “comeback,” Milian, who also goes by the nickname Tina Turn Up, is on her way to E! in a new reality show called “Christina Milian Turned Up.” The series gives an inside look at her day-to-day life with her sisters and mom as she works on a new album. On why she wanted to do the series, Milian said, “In the world’s eyes, what they know of me is from the blogs. What they know is from the media. But for me, by doing this show and by making this album, it’s presenting who the real me is, and I know for once that’s for sure.”
Milian recently spoke with HuffPost Entertainment about her show, her new music and, yes, even that classic Disney theme song. But first, check out the first few minutes of “Christina Milian Turned Up”:

What can fans expect from the show?
You know, it’s passionate and emotional, but at the same time it’s fun, heartfelt and filled with laughter. It’s a family show. When you come from a household of women, and we all have different personalities and transitional phases in our lives right now, you either get scared and cower away from life or you take the bull by the horns and live life to the fullest and be ready for whatever is out there and what’s to come.
Why should people watch?
One reason people have to watch this show is the realness. I think it can really relate to somebody … and I’m glad that people will get to see that because there’s no faking it. We’re going through real things in life, and I think people sometimes need to see that on television to help them get through their own life and let them know, “Hey, I’m normal.”
