Christina Aguilera’s Message to the Entertainment Industry: “You’re Working With a Fat Girl, Get Over It”
We all know the pressure celebrities feel to be thin and gorgeous. Heck, we even feel the pressure to look as good as a celebrity sometimes. Well, Christina Aguilera says she’s had enough of being “skinny”.
Christina has been busy finishing up her new album, Loutus (out November 13th), and while in the studio she told the label execs how she felt about her body.
“I told them, ‘You are working with a fat girl. Know it now and get over it.’ They need a reminder sometimes that I don’t belong to them. It’s my body. My body can’t put anyone in jeopardy of not making money anymore . . . my body is just not on the table that way anymore.”
That’s right Christina! It should be about the music, not about what you look like in the first place! During the promotion of her 2002 album “Stripped”, she says,
“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.”
It was around that time when she gained 15 pounds, and everyone was telling her to lose the weight.
“They called this serious emergency meeting about how there was a lot of backlash about my weight. Basically, they told me I would affect a lot of people if I gained weight . . . the production, musical directors.”
She ended up losing weight for her 2006 “Back to Basics” album and tour, but now she’s finally decided to take control of her own body. If you’ve watched the voice you will notice she’s not as thin as she used to be, but I personally think she still looks fabulous. She could cover up the girls more.
So what do you think. Is it about the music, or the look?
