Christina Aguilera has always been criticized for her weight, but as long as she’s happy with her figure, others’ opinions don’t matter.
At a TCA conference Friday, she told reporters:
“I’ve been on all spectrums. I’ve been in this [business] for a long time. I came out on the scene when I was 17 years old. You can never be too much of anything. You can never be too perfect, too thin, too curvy, voluptuous, this, that. I’ve been on all sides of the spectrum as far as any female in this business.”
Aguilera is confident in her body no matter what, though:
“I think my video works over the years have spoken to that… As you know, ‘Dirty’ and so on, and ‘Lady Marmalade.’ I’ve been no stranger to being very comfortable in my own skin to take those risks, to take those chances.”
A mom to almost 3-year-old Max, the 31-year old singer feels that women are “definitely under a microscope and under massive scrutiny.”
Why get in a fuss over what others think?
“As long as I’m happy in my own skin, that’s all I need. I’m happy with where I’m at. I have a boyfriend that loves my body. I love my body. My son is healthy and happy. That’s all that matters.”
Kudos to you, Ms. Aguilera. I feel like a lot of women could take your advice into mind.
