In a career resurrection the likes of Jennifer Lopez’s post-Idol comeback, Christina Aguilera parlays her success as a judge on The Voice into a new album, after 2010’s failed Bionic (though it did spawn the single “Not Myself Tonight”, which I unashamedly loved). This time, though, she’s told her record executives that they’re “working with a fat girl. Know it and get over it.”
When I think of Christina Aguilera I don’t think “fat”, but she tells the mag that “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.” Think: any of her pre-Stripped videos.
In the theme of her newest single off the album Lotus, “Your Body”, she says:
“My body can’t put anyone in jeopardy of not making money anymore. My body is just not on the table that way anymore.”
Rock “Your Body”, Christina!
