Christina Aguilera Kicks Off Comeback On Cover Of Paper Magazine

Published: Monday 26th Mar 2018 by Sam

Christina Aguilera is getting stripped all over again.

But this time, there’s no butt-baring chaps in sight. Xtina has unveiled a much more scaled back, ethereal image in the newest issue of Paper Magazine – which she also covers.

Within its pages, she expands on her fresh aesthetic, being inspired by the Childish Gamibo and Cardi B, and body image.

The feature arrives as anticipation for her new album – her first since 2012’s ‘Lotus’ – escalates.

Peep pics and quotes below…

On Her New Look:

“I’ve always been someone that obviously loves to experiment, loves theatrics, loves to create a storyline and play a character in a video or through stage. I’m a performer, that’s who I am by nature. But I’m at the place, even musically, where it’s a liberating feeling to be able to strip it all back and appreciate who you are and your raw beauty.”

[That said] I’m a girl that likes a beat face, let’s not get it twisted [laughs].”


On Defying Society’s Standards Of Beauty:

“There’s always gonna be those trolls out there or people that have their own definition and ideals of beauty, but I think we’re progressing to a place of pushback and more people coming out.

It’s like my Instagram says right now. Everybody that can’t hop on that train can suck our d*cks.”


On New Artists She’s Inspired By:

Childish Gambino. He’s genius.

Chance the Rapper too. He’s made it without a label, without any strings attached, and being so charismatic at the same time. And Cardi B – she makes people really crack up just by being herself, and it’s genuine.”


Stunning shoot!

It was a touch grating that she didn’t spill on new music. But it’s safe to presume that this is the official era launch; meaning that the material can’t be far off.

Your thoughts?

  2. SuxMyCockiness =o March 26, 2018

    Beautiful 😄 I hope she sticks with this, she looks great with less makeup.

  3. I HATE WHYTE…N BLACCCK BITCHECCZZ March 26, 2018

    All that makeup she wears on The Voice ages her and looks horrible on her I’m glad she’s making her a fresh face girl again…. Christina can sing. … she’s no Fantasia but I’m curious how her Mariah and pink will Fair this year…..

  4. mam March 26, 2018

    • FireBomb March 26, 2018

      Did she break up with Rutler ?

      • to ny March 26, 2018

        No still with him. it was jorge santos he ex boyfriend and former dancer she was talking about

  5. Puh-leeeeese March 26, 2018

    Great….so now can she start making her Pop/R&B Music again?

  6. Francis March 26, 2018

    She looks gorgeous on that cover! I don’t understand why she uses so much make up on The Voice, she has a beautiful face.

  7. China March 26, 2018

    She refuses to give her Fans what they want….a Stripped Style RnB soulful CD. The record buying public DOES NOT WANT TO HEAR HER NEW GAGA-STYLED MUSIC — IT DOES NOT SELL. Christina always sings SOULFUL music at these shows and then releases GARBAGE. FUSS. Loving me 4 me. Soar. Beautiful. Cant hold us down. S** for breakfast. So Emotional. Girl, stop playing and get the CD done……..

  8. Haters Gon’ Hate March 26, 2018

    Wow, she looks great stripped back…. 😲 makes her look much MUCH younger. I love the first 3 pix. Will be interesting to see how this aesthetic fits in with her new sound… still pissed at the wait but it does feel like she’s evolving her aesthetic for the new era….

  9. Jasmine March 26, 2018

    She looks nice. Just don’t go overboard with the lip injections pls

  10. Erica March 26, 2018

    The lips work on here I love it!!!

  11. JOHNVIDAL March 26, 2018

    How can she look so bad nowadays with the make up then? I really thought she had ruined her face completely by now to be honest. Unless this is retouched to death she looks amazing make up-less.

    • Fancy BISH March 26, 2018

      “Retouched to death” lmao 😂

    • mr.m March 26, 2018

      She always looks AMAZING with less make-up .. always
      She just loves heavy make-up and admitted that several times

  12. SMH March 26, 2018

    Yes, Yes, and YES. Cannot WAIT for Xtina’s new music. Music has been soooo stale for the last few years, she’s gonna be a refreshing, well needed return to the scene.

  13. mr.m March 26, 2018

    I said it before….. SHE IS COMING….. HARD.
    She is NOT messing around this era, period.
    She is coming for some basic ass overrated wigs
    Show them how it’s done visionary/musically/vocally..

  14. Marcel March 26, 2018

    She looks like Gaga in some of those pics … and that’s not a compliment

  15. LB March 26, 2018

    Those lips are a mess. They’re almost as bad as Lady Gaga’s new lips

    • mr.m March 26, 2018

      Britney, gaga and xtina all got the same duck lips lol
      I prefer xtina without them .. but I don’t mind them too

  16. BeyJayBlu March 26, 2018

    Dr Miami with the youth injec… serums yassss

    Slay a bit Tina! though stripped Alicia, stripped Justin, Stripped Christina… is it a rite of passage for every artist deep in their thirties?

  17. Brenda Lindsey March 26, 2018

    Stunningly beautiful!!

  18. DanYiel Iman March 27, 2018

    Christina Aguilera is a voice to be reckoned with!! “Change” is my jam still!!

  19. Olusheyi March 27, 2018

    Hurry up and give us some good music Xtina. No garbage like Lotus was

  20. RealNegro March 28, 2018

    I love her. Im gonna need less bionic this time around. Give me some soul because her voice is unmatched.

  21. 4everRod April 11, 2018

    Everyone be talking that s*** about “Bionic” but it was actually better than Lotus, visually, vocally, & production wise. She had some standout tracks on that album it was just poorly promoted. But now Lotus I only really liked shut the f*** up & my body. The rest just wasn’t catchy or didn’t stick enough for me to be interested.
