Christina Aguilera landed the cover of Marie Claire possibly so that she could promote the upcoming season of the show that has made her relevant again, NBC’s The Voice. In her exclusive, Christina says that 2011 “was a rough year.”
She explained: “Between my divorce and the other things I went through, a lot happened. It’s hard for anyone to go through that in public… I grew an even thicker skin after that hard year.”
Christina says that she’s had her highs and lows.
“I’ve been through the gamut of all things in this business. Being too thin. Being bigger. I’ve been criticized for being on both sides of the scale. It’s noise I block out automatically. I love my body. My boyfriend loooves my body.”
She added: “I happen to be very confident in my own skin. It takes time to get to that place, but it’s all about embracing yourself and your body.”
I only wish that all this “embracing” that Xtina talks about meant that she’d wear clothes that actually fit.
