It’s clear that Christina Aguilera has put on some weight, and the gossip bloggers and fashion critics have not given her any slack. But the according to her camp she is cool with the weight gain and is feeling fine in her body. I have to say she must be as she has been wearing an assortment of leggings and tights, and form fitting costumes that show of her curves (and at times just about everything else!) here’s what one of her friends had to say:
“She is 100% NOT pregnant! She wore a tight fitting dress and that’s all. Christina loves her curves. She’s a Latina woman with curves and since when is it not ok to have curves?
She feels like she is setting an example for women and young girls, especially Latinas. She’s very proud of her curves. Christina thinks she is a good role model – not everyone is super skinny and she wants girls to embrace their body type.”
Perhaps she just got tired of trying to be a size nothing, and is just honoring her body’s desire to be more curvy. There is nothing wrong with that. AND thick or thin Christina has an authentic voice and THAT is what should matter most, not the size of her hips!
I wonder if this is a new trend of female performers taking back their body images by not adhering to the status quo, both Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus have come out and told people to layoff of them and their bodies. I certainly hope so. We as women have a right, a responsibility to honor ourselves and our bodies, and not be beholden to fitting into an almost impossible, sometimes unhealthy standard or size!!!
