She may have received a lot of flak after putting on a few pounds, but the criticism isn’t bothering The Voice judge Christina Aguilera. Instead of worrying about losing weight, Christina is busy flaunting her body in tight, cleavage-bearing ensembles. And she explains why she loves her body in the latest issue of Lucky.
Many Christina Aguilera fans lament the fact that their favorite singer no longer has the body of an 18-year-old girl. We think that’s to be expected, and apparently, Christina agrees. Not only is she enjoying playing up her curves in short dresses — she is busy telling other women to work their curves as well.
Instead of looking at old pictures of herself and mourning the ensuing weight gain, Christina is actually a bit critical of the way her figure looked ten years ago. She told Lucky, ”Actually, the challenge I’ve always had is being too thin, so I love that now I have a booty, and obviously I love showing my cleavage.” Some of that challenge may also have had to do with the pressures of the industry. It’s a lot to deal with when you’re a young star. Christina explains, “When you’re young, it’s so easy to get bull-dozed.
Christina’s advice for other curvy women? Be proud of your body! “Hey, if you can work it and you can own it, that confidence is going to shine through.”
It’s nice to see at least one star loving her body. Even if the result is the showing off of some, well, questionable fashion choices. But we definitely agree with Christina’s overarching message: thin or curvy, it’s important to love your body!
