Christina Aguilera embraces the booty

Baby Got Back: Christina Aguilera Says She Loves Her Booty

You might have noticed that Christina Aguilera has gained some weight recently, but that doesn’t really hurt her looks. The singer is cutting a far more voluptuous and curvy figure lately, and, in a recent interview, she basically admitted what I’ve been saying all along: Christina Aguilera’s new booty is awesome.

Aguilera’s pipes made her career, but having the total package doesn’t hurt. Though The Voice judge has faced some criticism from idiots over her recent weight gain, the singer is embracing her curves, talking about her new body — and booty — in a recent interview with Lucky.

“Actually, the challenge I’ve always had is being too thin, so I love that now I have a booty, and obviously I love showing my cleavage.” Aguilera also had a bit of advice for curvier girls. “Hey, if you can work it and you can own it, that confidence is going to shine through.”

The freedom Aguilera experiences in her career now is something she has had to fight for as the curvy figure and artistic independence haven’t always been the way:

“When you’re young, it’s so easy to get bull­dozed,” she said. She was surrounded by people who advised her on what to say, what to sing, how to look, and what to wear early in her career, and it’s clear that Aguilera doesn’t miss those days. “There were these two ladies who worked at the record label who always wanted to come to fittings and dress me up like a Barbie doll. It was disgusting.”

Still Aguilera admits she has learned from past mistakes:

“Difficult moments in life can either get you down or they can inspire you,” she said. Also, Aguilera dropped a hint about her upcoming album. “If you love ‘Fighter,’ ” she says, “you’re going to love my new album. As a 30-year-old woman, I’ve been uncovering my independence, and it’s been really fun to explore in the new songs.”

What do you think of Christina Aguilera? Do you think she looks better with a booty?
