Christina and beau Matthew Rutler took her son Max to the Pumpkin Patch over the weekend, and we couldn't take our eyes off of Xtina's hot pink hair! Wonder what little Max thinks about it? Maybe he's used to mommy's wild style?
Not only did Christina debut her sexy music video for "Your Body" last week, but she appeared completely naked on the cover of her new album, Lotus. So what does she have to say about flaunting her curves for the world to see? Last week she told Ryan Seacrest, "It’s very tongue-in-cheek, very playful, it’s very fun. It’s kind of comedic in a way." She continued, "I'm kind of playing this character it's very much like a character outside of myself. It’s just fun, it’s like a little mini movie."
Christina Aguilera appears on the Sept. 29 cover of Billboard magazine, and the Grammy winning singer opened up about the scrutiny over her weight and the pressure she was put under to stay a certain size.
"During the promotion of my album Stripped [in 2002], 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. The next time my label saw me, I was heavier, darker and full of piercings! Let me tell you, that wasn't an easy pill for them to swallow. I had gained about 15 pounds during promotion and during my Stripped tour [with Justin Timberlake]. They called this serious emergency meeting about how there was a lot of backlash about my weight. Basically, they told me I would effect a lot of people if I gained weight - the production, musical directors," she explained of the criticism from the music industry.
"[They claimed] people I toured with would also miss out if I gained weight because I would sell no records or tickets for my shows. I was so young, so I lost the weight quickly and was toothpick thin during Back to Basics promos and touring," she adds.
Now that she's older and wiser, the blonde beauty is taking back ownership of her appearance and refusing to let anyone muscle her around.
"I told them during this Lotus recording, '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," she confesses of her independence making her new record.
So what can we expect from The Voice coach's new tunes?
"Once I started writing my own songs, beginning with Stripped, I tried to infuse as much as I could to promote strength and inspire people with that message. And now I'm at a place at 31, where the last time I felt this way was when I was 21 with Stripped and I had a lot to say and a lot to express," she reveals.
Christina Aguilera dined at Spago in Beverly Hills last night with her boyfriend Matt Rutler, and we're not sure if it was a combination of cocktails or high heels, but the 31-year-old singer needed quite a bit of assistance getting to her car -- at one point she seemed to have no less than three people helping her walk!
Xtina showed off her newly dyed pink and purple hair, and as always, she wore her bright red lipstick and a form-fitting dress. Maybe she was celebrating the release of her music video for "Your Body"? Party on!
Christina Aguilera has released a second clip from her upcoming music video, "Your Body," and thankfully we get to see the complete masterpiece this week. “Wanted you to be the first to see,” Xtina tweeted on Tuesday night. “New clip for #YourBody video. Premieres on @VEVO in a few days!!! XoXtina.”
“Your Body” is the first single off of her upcoming Lotus album, which will be released on November 13.
