When pop diva Christina Aguilera hit the stage at the AMA awards with Maroon 5 wearing the above ultra-form fitting dress she received a serious backlash from haters about her weight. Some went as far as to question if the Dirty singer was pregnant for a second time.
At the recent NBC TCA for The Voice Aguilera addressed all these comments about her weight and figure. The 31-year-old said:
“I’ve been on all spectrums. I’ve been in this business for a long time. I came out on the scene when I was 17 years old. You can never be too much of anything. You can never be too perfect, too thin, too curvy, voluptuous, this, that. I’ve been on all sides of the spectrum as far as any female in this business.”
The mom of 3-year-old Max acknowledged that women are, “”definitely under a microscope and under massive scrutiny.” She showed the maturity of someone who’s been in this spotlight for a long time. She added:
“As long as I’m happy in my own skin, that’s all I need. I’m happy with where I’m at. I have a boyfriend that loves my body. I love my body. My son is healthy and happy. That’s all that matters.”
I think that with her AMA performance a majority of the criticism was more about her wardrobe choice than weight but Christina reminded everyone that she’s never been afraid to “go there” fashion wise:
“I think my video works over the years have spoken to that… As you know, ‘Dirty’ and so on, and ‘Lady Marmalade.’ I’ve been no stranger to being very comfortable in my own skin to take those risks, to take those chances.”
Christina has never lacked confidence. As for this issue and these comments I think that’s a good thing.
