Oh, how we love a comeback story! The longer you vacation at ‘Rock Bottom Resort’, the faster you will work your way back into the game. Fans allowed Mariah Carey to re-graduate with top honors after the only gleaming touch to her movie, ‘Glitter’, was actually its title. We also forgave Miss Janet Jackson for that infamous wardrobe malfunction that led her to a sugar binge, and the list goes on and on…
After a disastrous 2011, it seems Christina Aguilera is finally poised to make a sparkling return. These days, the songstress has been all over the news for various reasons. As if readying her new album and prepping for the star-studded second season of ‘The Voice’ were not enough, Christina Aguilera has recently opened up about her much-talked about curves in the latest issue of ‘Marie Claire’, and her sincere confessions are swirling all around the internet.
With an effortless statement that reads: “I love my body, and so does my boyfriend”, the superstar has seemingly become the unofficial spokesperson of self-confidence and self-acceptance. Christina Aguilera also shared her personal discomfort with regards to the massive scrutiny that surrounds females in the entertainment industry, something of which the world is well-aware, but seems to subsist with comfortably.
A few weeks ago, we discussed the insane rumors that claimed executives at NBC had sweet-talked Christina into shedding some pounds to showcase a healthier figure on ‘The Voice‘. Those headlines never remarked on the rest of the male-dominated mentor panel. It is undeniably true that the multi-platinum performer has put on some weight, and it is also evident her style over the last months has not exactly flattered her bigger silhouette.
That was exactly what blogs, websites, and tabloids reported on in 2011, linking her weight gain to a series of unfortunate events like the lyric flub at the Super Bowl or the silver dress she recently donned at the American Music Awards. Christina Aguilera never responded to the controversy.
If anything, her ensembles got tighter and tighter as she shrugged off the tension. Had she freaked out about her image, she would have hopped on the treadmill or run off to a plastic surgeon, as many suggested. As ludicrous as it may sound, the same voluptuous body that was repeatedly slammed by the media a few weeks ago is now an example of healthy confidence. How does that make sense?
The nature of the tabloids is just like that, unpredictable and extremely unfair. When Michael Jackson passed away, everyone seemed to be his biggest fan. Too bad the people behind all the nice articles, lovely headlines, and positive media coverage had previously shattered Michael’s career and personal life. Long story short, they will put you up on a pedestal, and they will later drag you down in the dirt.
Props to Miss Aguilera who can absolutely not care less about what people say about her body. Living up to the inspiring lyrics of her Grammy Award-winning song, ‘Beautiful’, seems to be working out just fine for the blonde talent, whose cover shot looks as slick as can be. Skinny or curvy, the Grammy winner will return to ‘The Voice’ next February 5 on NBC right after the Super Bowl, a multimillion coveted time slot that will garner tons of attention.
