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

Published: Monday 1st Oct 2012 by Sam

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…

    I liked the skinnier Xtina but I LOVE the voluptous Xtina more just for taking control of her body,her life and her career..

  3. Miguel October 1, 2012

    Um, I read the Billboard Mag interview on paper, she said nothing like that

    Seriously, these days some people can post something on the internet, some tabloid will buy into it without even checking it out and all of a sudden it becomes true LOL

    I Like Christina she can sing

  6. honest October 1, 2012

    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.

    • Sleazy October 1, 2012

      That because she was a fat druggie w**** !!!!!!! She was mean to xtina so she got what came to her hahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahh *hands her and you a crack pipe*

    • Dave October 1, 2012

      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.

  7. Sleazy October 1, 2012

    Go Xtina!!!!!!! But still Your old body slayed life!!!!!!!!! *p**** pops like you in dirrty *

    • Navy Pressed H*** October 1, 2012

      you’re a funny c*** but i just throw up in my mouth a lil ewww 🙁

  8. MC October 1, 2012

    Do you Xtina. If your healthy and happy, who the f*** is here to judge? Xtina go and slay those skinny b****** and teach them how its done. I get that your trying to compare “Louts” and “Stripped” so it better be that great. I’m waiting for Stripped 2.0

  9. skintightjeans October 1, 2012

    B**** please…..don’t nobody care about this has been fat cow. Go out and graze in the pasture with the rest of the cows!

  10. Lax October 1, 2012

    christina fat is where it’s at and
    thin is In, so either way it’s a win, win, for U, XTINA.

  11. JER October 1, 2012

    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

  12. Let’s Be Real October 1, 2012

    I hope all these people staning so hard will be there when lotus comes out…I just …I can’t this in all reality doesn’t look like slayage.jmo

  13. christinastherealtalent October 1, 2012

    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 Lunatic October 1, 2012

      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.

    • jo October 1, 2012

      Christina is a nasty joke. Pathetic is what you call anyone who looks up to her.

  14. kimberly October 1, 2012

    The same XXL tina fans who come out to call mariah f****** is now tryng to make themselves feel good about XXXL tina weight gain. I can’t with you guys, I am keeping an eye on the hypocracy on TGJ.

  15. ASIA October 1, 2012

    Christina is NOT curvy! J Lo is curvy, Beyonce is curvy, Shakira is curvy, Nicki Minaj (although fake) is curvy. Christina is FAT! There’s a difference!!!!

    • mr.m October 1, 2012

      IN YOUR FACE 😀

    • CURLY SUE October 1, 2012

      Haha. Christina you are not full blooded Latina darling so you were not blessed with our curves. Us Latina and Black girls are most definitely blessed in that department 🙂 Christina has a narrow white girl figure so when she gains weight it looks extremely nasty & sloppy ewww!!!! :-X

  16. truthtruth(i DRAAAAGGS a FUNKY b****) October 1, 2012

  18. media is full of lies and fiction October 1, 2012


    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??


  19. Suicide Blonde October 1, 2012

    Oh Girl!…no…just no.

  20. Malibongwe October 1, 2012

    I just read the interview on BillBoard and Xtina made no mention of her weight. It was strictly about her music and her stint on The Voice. This post is based on a fake interview.. -__________-

  21. chrystal October 1, 2012

    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.

  22. Joy October 1, 2012

    You go girl! I love it!

  23. jo October 1, 2012

    chritine is dumb. She is half white so how can she say shes ecuadorian. she is garbage. she just thinks its cool to say not white (even though she is). your a joke christina

  24. lola October 2, 2012

    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.

  25. Mphasha November 21, 2012

    I love Xtina, the girl is so talented! she can sing no don’t come across a voice like hers all the time. I like the fact that she’s not letting all the negative comments about her weight get to her like some people do. Big up Christina. From your no 1 South African fan
