Christina Aguilera On Weight Gain: “You Are Working With A Fat Girl…Get Over It”

chrisitna aguilera weight Christina Aguilera On Weight Gain: You Are Working With A Fat Girl...Get Over It

For the last two years, much ado has been made about Christina Aguilera‘s notable weight gain. Indeed, after spending much of her career as a petite Pop star, recent times have seen Aguilera sport a more voluptuous figure.

Predictably, the singer’s curvier frame has become a public Hot Topic; with some defending her right to be her, while others charge that Pop stars are ultimately selling products (“themselves”) and should put their best foot (or in this case, “weight”) forward.

Never one to hold her tongue, Xtina has addressed the issue head-on in the latest edition of Billboard magazine. Lets just say, her response makes for an intriguing and telling read.

Her words after the jump…

On Her Body Issues In The Past:

“During the promotion of my album Stripped [in 2002], I got tired of being a skinny, white girl. I am Ecuadorian but people felt so safe passing me off as a skinny, blue-eyed white girl. The next time my label saw me, I was heavier, darker and full of piercings! [Laughs] Let me tell you, that wasn’t an easy pill for them to swallow. I had gained about 15 pounds during promotion and during my Stripped tour [with Justin Timberlake, 31]. They called this serious emergency meeting about how there was a lot of backlash about my weight. Basically, they told me I would effect a lot of people if I gained weight — the production, musical directors. [They claimed] people I toured with would also miss out if I gained weight because I would sell no records or tickets for my shows, I was young, so I lost the weight quickly and was toothpick thin during Back to Basics promos and touring.”

On “Re-Claiming” Her Body:

 “I told them during this Lotus recording, ‘You are working with a fat girl. Know it now and get over it.’ They need a reminder sometimes that I don’t belong to them. It’s my body, My body can’t put anyone in jeopardy of not making money anymore—my body is just not on the table that way anymore.”

On Her New Album ‘Lotus':

 “This album represents a celebration of the new me, and to me the lotus has always represented this unbreakable flower that withstands any harsh weather conditions in its surroundings, that withstands time and remains beautiful and strong throughout the years. Once I could start writing my own songs, beginning with Stripped, I tried to infuse as much as I could to promote strength and inspire people with that message. And now I’m at a place at 31, where the last time I felt this way was when I was 21 with Stripped and I had a lot to say and a lot to express.”

**********

Go Xtina!

For us, the importance doesn’t lie with the size of her waist; it lies with maintaining a healthy lifestyle. So long as she’s doing that,  she has every right to say what did to Billboard.

Unfortunately, we’re in era where image outranks talent. Hence to sustain, it’s important Christina (whatever her size) continues to show that she’s happy, healthy, and most importantly, still able to deliver when and where it matters. She’s already done that with the stellar ‘Your Body’ video, it’s now a case of continuing along that path as she heads into her ‘Lotus’ promotional run.

All else aside, we’re still holding out for some killer choreography at some point during this campaign…

    THE PROBLEM ISN’T SO MUCH HER WEIGHT BUT HER TRYING TO STILL WEAR THE SAME ISH SHE WAS WEARING WHEN SHE WAS SMALLER WHICH ONLY AMPLIFIES HER WEIGHT GAIN. IF HER PEOPLE, ADVERTISERS & FANS HAVE TO ADJUST THEN SO SHOULD SHE & HER WARDROBE. STOP WEARING THOSE SKINNY GIRL OUTFITS XTINA B/C JILL SCOTT & QUEEN LATIFAH ARE THICK GIRLS WHO DRESS HOTT & LOOK GREAT!!!………..JENNY JONES!!!

    I would get over it but 10 years ago around this time you were making front of Kelly Osbourne for being fat. Now you see how it feels. Even if I don’t like a persons weight I wont comment on it unless they are family or friend.

    I’m still waiting for the proof of that. It is being claimed, but where is the “proof”? & she actually did not say this. ThatGrapejuice just wants hits. Christina fans posted this on Tumblr, & someone broke the rumor because they said in the cover story she actually didn’t speak on that at all.

    Doth she protest too much? As she continues to have 30 pounds airbrushed off her fat in every photo. At least she’s stimulating the economy. I mean the team of professional technicians working round the clock to make sure that mass is under control deserves a medal

    She continues to prove why I love her sooooo much and that explains why she had a gained a little during her Stripped era then came back stick then for her back to Basics one.

    Anyway, what annoys me is now Lady Gaga is trying to address her weight gain and trying to get people to criticze it so she can get some attention. Nobody knew about Gagas weight gain until she said something about it and starting posting pics of her half naked body online. It’s like Gaga is the perpetuating her own criticism just get people talking about her.

    Lady Caca wants to do anything Christina does.

    If Christina talks about loving her own body, so will Lady Lunatic, of course!!

    Lady Caca wishes she was Xtina and the voice of the generation. But she isn’t.

    She can stay jealous and mad.

    LMAO.

    Journalists today are all foking dumb idiots!!!!!!!

    I read the Billboard interview, it’s a FANTASTIC interview about her music and her TV show.

    She doesn’t say anything about her weight in it!!

    These quotes are all fabricated!!!!
    And we all know Christina is more eloquent than that!!!!! She’d never call herself “fat”.

    What a foking mess.

    Christina has already said she loved her body in the past, and felt comfortable in her own skin at any size. Wasn’t that enough??

    Now people have to invent and make up these stupid quotes??

    smh

    I read the interview days ago. She didn’t say those things about her body and the label. someone on tumblr inserted thos comments an a site and spread it around. it’s sad that journalist today will post anything/everything on their sites without going to the source first. How sad.

    Christina is a damn liar! She is just like many of the fat women who are in denial. Christina… you look like a fat, old witch! There is nothing attractive about that. She is so ugly now-a-days and has a bad sense of style. Of course you should be comfortable in your own skin, but you are in the spotlight, not only that, you still like to wear stripper clothes and showing all that stank is not a good look.
