Us Weekly: Christina Aguilera’s leg dribble was just sweat, y’all

True story: yesterday’s Christina Aguilera story grossed me out. Christina performed at Etta James’s funeral, and the whole thing was arguably disastrous. My take was that Christina made the funeral about her drunken wailing, her sketchy, gross-looking bolt-ons, and the fact that she had something dripping down her legs. Oh, and she probably wasn’t wearing panties. That’s the gross part – worst case scenario, she was dribbling urine or menstruation, which likely means Christina was going commando to a FUNERAL. Best case scenario, Christina was drunk and overheated, and she sweated off several layers of body makeup/fake-tan. Anyway, Christina has heard our cries of “EWWwwww” and she (an “insider”) tells Us Weekly what was really going on:

Xtina did Etta proud. Christina Aguilera sang at Saturday’s memorial service at an L.A. church for the late Etta James — crooning the legendary blues’ singer’s classic “At Last” for hundreds of mourners. (Stevie Wonder sang with the church choir, while Rev. Al Sharpton delivered the eulogy.)

In photos of Aguilera’s incredible tribute to James — who passed away Jan. 20 — fans noticed odd streaks running down her legs.

“She sang her heart out. It was a memorial service for her idol and she was nervous,” an insider explains to Us of the performance. (Aguilera, 31, has been covering “At Last” for years and called James “a true gift to music and a woman of great spirit and courage” on her website after James’ death.”

“It was her proudest moment,” the source explains. “The sweat caused her spray tan to streak.”

[From Us Weekly]

Do you like how Us Weekly broke up that quote? “She was nervous…” AND? She was nervous, so she piddled on herself? She was nervous so she had diarrhea? She was nervous because she wasn’t wearing drawers in church?!?! TELL ME. Ah, she was nervous and sweating. Got it. That’s what I originally thought too, but in other photos I’ve seen of the sketchy liquid, I have to admit… (ugh)… I think she might have gotten her period. I don’t know.

These are new photos of Christina, her son and Matt Rutler from Sunday. Are those her period leggings?

    i STILL BELIEVE IT WASN’T SWEAT!!!

    • Sam says:

      When my legs sweat, they sweat everywhere not just “up there” so I’m either thinking she isnt wearing underwear and tinkled or had her monthly visit. Still…. I wouldnt wish either on anyone when they are at a funeral for their idol (and in front of million megapixel cameras) even if i disliked them

      • Petunia says:

        I wouldn’t either but that’s what undies are for.

      • JenJen says:

        I hate myself for defending her, but when I’m overheated or anxious and sweating, my ass sweats (under the cheeks, not the crack) and if I’m wearing a skirt or loose shorts, will run down my leg EXACTLY like that. It runs down from the back around the insides. Her legs are a little lumpy now, and the fat on the upper thigh would cause the sweat to kind of angle forward and not necessarily just drip straight down.
        I want to hit her for making me come to her defense.

    • Vanden says:

      No matter what it is I have no sympathy for her. Can’t help but feel that none of this would have happened if she’d dressed appropriately to the funeral. Yeah Christina, it was a FUNERAL. Etta James’ no less. She looked cheap and tacky and considering the occasion i thought it was a bit disrespectful.

    • Jaxx says:

      Whatever it is running down her leg– it wouldn’t have been there if the trashy, disrespectful cow had worn underwear to the FUNERAL for her friend. I have been a fan of Xtina’s but lately she is just so low class and gross that I am done. Her howling, overwrought vocals and cleavage hanging out every time she purposely bent over to shake them at the audience was just so tasteless and crass. This wasn’t a concert. It was a tribute at a funeral service.

      And whatever was running down her leg is just the last straw. She has just become a pig and appears to be proud of it.

  2. Katie says:

    I really wish she’d stop bleaching her hair and spray tanning. She looks terribly cheap and trashy.

    • Steph says:

      Agreed, I also think all that heavy make up just makes her look older and not in a good way. Retire those leggings! She has enough money to buy jeans fitted to her!

    • Molly says:

      I totally agree. She looked so much better during her vintage phase. And usually Im the last person to comment on someones weight, but she either needs to loose some or start dresssing for her new one.

    • The Truth Fairy says:

      Agreed. If anyone is in need of a make-over, it’s her. She has kept the same look for way too long and it is terribly outdated.

      If she ever wants to make a comeback, she should disappear for a bit, lose weight, change her hair and makeup and clothing style, and release and album of dance or pop hits à la Britney.

      Otherwise, she will continue on the fast track to Has Been Land where she will stay forever.

  3. Sue says:

    This tote and bag are heavy you carry them! I am tired of holding his hand you carry him….. Looks like he is one of the help. hehe….

  4. mln76 says:

    It was sweat AND spray tan. I think Xtina is a mess and the performance was unwatchable but I think people should remember just how hot stage lights are then take into consideration Xtinas full figure.

  5. Helen says:

    It wasn’t sweat, this is just damage control. She either leaked or was menstruating. It’s gross but she should probably admit it (indirectly or not) because I see women online sympathize with her. Dunno why, something THIS gross has never happened to me, so I can’t say I relate… Then again, I never sang at funerals so, yeah, I guess I’m just jealous, lmao!

    To think that I used to love the bitch…

    • Petunia says:

      Yes we woman can relate! I have a friend who visited a client at their home once during a very heavy mense cycle. She was wearing pad, undies, stockings, etc. BUT managed to leak through onto a white piece of furniture. Can you imagine how awful and embarrassed she must have felt? I think we all have that “what if” fantasy so yeah, I think she’d get sympathy. But she should NOT admit to going commando if she did so because my sympathy vote would pretty much dissolve.

  6. Franny says:

    for what its worth, I don’t think it was blood or urine. Its almost a brown color, like her awful fake skin, so I’m sure its just a fresh spray tan.

    I’m sure the worst part for her is the weight gain to her face. There’s no masking face weight, and for some its the hardest to get rid of.

  7. Helen says:

    Also, and I apologize for being such a bitch, if you look at the pics, you can see it’s something coming out of her. I’ve NEVER heard of a woman to sweat THIS much and I’ve seen a share of them.

  8. Justalark says:

    It’s a Christina Fashion Conundrum!

    On the one hand, those tacky, shiny, girdle leggings are disgustingly tight, and she’s not fooling anyone that she’s gained a few sizes…

    On the other hand, if she had worn them (or a boy-short version) under her skirt at Etta’s funeral, there would be no speculation about the trickle of urine/diarrhea/menstrual fluid running down her leg…

    Sadly, Christina really does look like the “Before” model in a Makeover contest!

  9. Luise says:

    What has happened to this woman?

  10. Jayna says:

    She had a spray tan going. I believe it was her tan running. Older churches usually are very warm. Etta was her idol since she was a child, sona huge honor and was probably very nervous. I don’t like her rendition, but it is basically the way she always sang it in concert and Etta liked it and her.

    No reason to be so mean calling it blood and urine.

    And you people saying she had nothing on underneath are delusional. Christina was in heavy-duty Spanx to be in that skirt.

    • mln76 says:

      ITA about the Spanx she was probably stuffed in so tight with the lights, the heat, the extra weight, the make up was just too darn much.

    • heatheradair says:

      I’m with you.

      Handful of years ago I spray tanned in the summer — the next day (so, not immediately — probably 18 hours later) I thought it would be safe to put on some white pants and drive in a hot car.

      Arrived at my destination with rivers of orange-ee brown “not-quite-set” spray tan running down my legs, staining my white pants…..SUPER SEXY.

      SO — stands to reason she probably went for a “tan refresher” immediately before the big appearance (the girl’s hooked on the orange, after all — gotta keep the orange fresh).

      Then you add nerves, spanx, full church-o-people, tight black suit, the gravity of singing at your idol’s funeral, and if you’re a back-of-the-leg sweater (I am) you’ll have brown drips.

      Been there.

  11. bea says:

    If your sweat is orange, please see a doctor.

  12. Gina says:

    if she had a period i feel bad for her, all of us women have overflown at some point.
    On another note she looks unhealthy and pasty and so does that boyfriend of hers. Doesn’t he look exactly like her ex husband by the way?

  13. bea says:

    She sang “At Last”? That is a totally romantic song despite the word “heaven” in it – completely wrong song to sing at a funeral.

    I feel sorry for her. She’s at her fattest, everything is a mess, she’s with a crappy guy, she’s trying to “maintain” (and thinking she is). Someone needs to step in and call her out.

    • Jayna says:

      It was Etta’s most recognizable song. Christina sings it. I am sure she was invited solely to sing that song because Etta always liked her rendition. I didn’t like her rendition, but Christina got a standing ovation from Etta’s family and friends. So if they were moved and happy, that’s all that matters, not any of us.

  14. Marjalane says:

    I live in the south and the summers are nasty; I sweat everywhere when I run, and it’s never run down my legs like that….

  15. Quest says:

    Whatever it was running down her leg, it was still gross.

  16. SHEDA says:

    i love her music, but nowadays she looks as if all she does is sweat & fart.

  17. Maria says:

    even if my period was not expected…if i was going to perform in front of hundreds of peoople, not to mention being broadcast on cnn around the world, i would wear a tampon and panties ‘just in case’…. this is why i think it might be spray tan, NO ONE can not approx know when their period is due…or feel ‘some’ sort of symptom, cramp, something…..I suppose it could happen, but to me, this would be such dense behavior that NO ONE could be so unaware. she is heavier, it was hot, and her thighs probably rub together, so the sweat and spray tan is a possibility. I feel for her, she just doesn’t seem put together. I remember long ago she did a black and white music video with Ricky Martin..hair in a soft bob, slim..she was so beautiful!

  18. Asli says:

    I think it was sweat blended with her spray tan and that gave it that brown-ish color. Besides, no matter what she was doing she would’ve ran outta there if it was her period. Anyone would have, no matter how professional you are.

  19. I.want.shoes says:

    She is starting to look like Boy George with a blond wig on.

  20. Mel says:

    Omg. If she started her period I feel so bad for her. Show a little empathy woman to woman ! How embarrassing.

  21. Me says:

    I have NEVER menstruated down my leg in all my years. I never even bled down my legs after having two babies, and you know the bleeding is incredibly heavy. This was sweat and spray tan for sure. The girl is practically neon orange its not all that far fetched. Who just suddenly gets a period and then blammo its running down the leg? The girl was shrieking her heart out in a suit in front of bright lights and cameras… Id be sweating too.

  22. Justaposter says:

    If it wasn’t for bad luck, this chick wouldn’t have any luck.

    So lets play the ‘it was self tanner’ game.

    We can even say ‘it was a new type of self tanner she was testing out’

    Then one has to ask, what type of stoopid girl tries out a ‘new product’ on such a big event?

    We can even play the ‘oops got my period early’ game..

    Once again, you have to ask what kind of stoopid girl doesn’t throw on a pantyliner for ‘just in case’?

    I guess we have our answer.

  23. tmbg says:

    It really looked like sweat to me. She probably uses a body bronzer like George Hamilton to enhance the fake tan, and it ran off when she started sweating. It’s an odd place to sweat, but you never know.

    I guess it’s possible she started her period, but it looked kind of watery for that.

    I’ve never quite seen legs like hers. She has no indent in the knee area. I’d be peddling backwards on the exercise bike pronto to try and get some muscle definition.

  24. Nicole says:

    I was listening to the radio and the entertainment reporter who was there said it was her period, but who knows. You really don’t want to address the issue in any way. Saying it’s spray tan is a nice cover. I’m black, I wouldn’t have that excuse to offer. It would just be a gross discovery and hugely embarassing.

  25. serena says:

    Am I the only one that can’t see anything?

  26. Smokinjo says:

    Shoulda had Josh Kracjik sing this song, he gave me goosebumps when he sang it on American Idol, Xtina’s virsion just made me cringe when she started. Poor Etta. rip.

  27. Lisa says:

    OMG…PERIOD LEGGINGS!!! I HAVE THOSE!!!

    I just feel BAD about this chile…just…BAD!!!

  28. Cathy says:

    Whatever it was it was gross. I almost feel bad for her. She needs to get some new people around her, she’s just been going from one p.r. disaster to another. Someone needs to tell her no, no more spray tan, no you can’t dress like you have a size 7 body, no more leather bodysuits. Remember the Michael Jackson tribute concert she looked like hell. She needs to put down the alcohol, concentrate on her kid and perhaps lose a few pounds

    • Petunia says:

      You know, if she wanted to dress in the same style, even if she chose the correct size, it would help so much. The too-tight look isn’t sexy. She’s probably afraid to admit she’s gone up in size (buying bigger sizes is scary) but she’d be surprised how much THINNER she’d look with the right size in clothing.

  29. Shoeaddict says:

    Grossness aside, I love those black and white shoes in the last picture!! WHERE CAN I FIND THEM?!?!

  30. Gast says:

    It’s sweat and fake tan/body bronzer whatever, but not her period. The brown-orange colour is not blood. If any of you is bleeding in that kind of colour, please go and see a Doctor. Blood does not immediately turn brown when it’s “leaving” the body. I don’t even like Christina, but I feel really bad for her. It just seems like, she can’t get it right in the last couple of months.

  31. Cerulean says:

    Well guess lunch won’t be happening today. Just ewwwww. Ewwwww. Ewwwww.

  32. imabrat says:

    Aside from the dribble, she should be embarrassed for having shown such cleavage and giving a “performance” at a funeral. What an unclassy rather trashy person.

  33. Julie says:

    For the love of God what in the hell is going on with this woman? Bloat hardly describes this mess; her arms in pics here yesterday looked like she is using a needle. And I heard on Inside Edition yesterday that it was her tanners that was dripping. Uh, I don’t think they drip….but whatever was dripping may have dragged that orange stuff along as well.

    • Petunia says:

      OMG, Julie, that last comment makes the most sense of anything. It would explain the look and the placement of the splatterings.

      Sorry but if what you suggest is true, this makes anything Brit Brit did seem pretty tame by comparison, coupled with the awful boobs and the supposedly awful performance.

  34. Natasha says:

    I’ll buy that it is spray tan. Maybe she just got it done but it’s embarrassing no matter what. Also, I watched her in Burlesque for the first time last week. OMG she looks like a totally different person. Weight issues aside, she looked amazing in that movie and should take some styling and make up tips from that. She looks so much better with less make up

  35. Mitzie Martin says:

    Poor girl – anyway, more to the point people at A FUNERAL were recording her on their cellphones then gave her a standing ovation, tacky much?

  36. Bobbie says:

    I say its liquidy poop- diahrea (spelling?). My sister who is a drug counselor says that people who use drugs have more trouble controlling such things. It could be a period too. No way is that sweat or her other leg would be sweaty too. It’s too big of a glob and too limited to one stream.

  37. HoustonGrl says:

    Can I just say I feel SO BAD for her that this happened. Whatever the source of this liquid, it is MORTIFYING. I would want to crawl into a hole in the ground if I were her. That said, she desperately needs a makeover. I think her hair must be screaming “Please God not another round of bleach,” and the fake tan is absolutely gross.

    I do think she is very talented, but often goes overboard in live performance.

    • Natasha says:

      Absolutely mortifying!!!! Totally agree on the make over, although she really needs a make under. It’s all too much…see my post above. Her hair is just fried and the make up is atrocious and makes her look so trashy.
      She really is a talented singer. I saw her on her Back to Basics tour and she wasn’t lip synching like most pop stars but definitely goes a little overboard sometimes.

  38. juju says:

    Sweat my a__ !! GROSS GROSS GROSS THAT’S ALL I’AM SAYING !!!!!!!!

  39. Jezi says:

    Her outfit was inappropriate for a funeral and whatever was dripping made me nauseous. I’m starting to feel very bad for her. She looks extremely unhealthy and I’m not just talking about her weight gain. She looks bloated in the face. She didn’t put on that much weight to look that swollen.

  40. lolas says:

    I agree with the Spanx posters – I can’t believe she WASN’T wearing them, she probably buys them in bulk. In which case, I find it hard to believe she could leak through them. When your period leaks it generally leaks in your clothes (sorry to be so graphic) and wouldn’t make its way down your leg, unless you were commando, and I can’t believe she was. Not for proprietary sake, as much as for suck the fat in a pencil skirt. I would say more damning is her narcissistic over the top performance and ridiculous cleavage.

  41. MissyA says:

    I don’t care if it was sweat, blood or tears running down her leg. it’s just a shame that Christina’s own ego ruined a touching tribute to her idol. Bummer.

  42. HappyJoyJoy says:

    I think it was period AND tanner. I think she doesn’t feel like wearing underwear because now that she’s put on a significant amount of lbs (for her normally slender frame) they must be uncomfortable, so she goes commando. I think if she wasn’t whatever she is all the time (drunk?) she’d remember the track of her cycle.

  43. mew says:

    Wow she looks unhealthy and I’m not talking about her curves. There’s just that kind of unhealthy bloatedness that alcoholics and bulimics share. Not a good look!

  44. skuddles says:

    Well whatever that was running down her legs, maybe this will force her to stop spray painting herself into a peculiar shade of pumpkin?

  45. Jules says:

    It probably was boob sweat, swamp ass and spray tan running down her leg. Eewww!!!

    Fatty McGee needs to stop going braless and pantyless to funerals!

  46. Camille (The original) says:

    The woman needs a major make-under stat! Where’s POD when you need it?

  47. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I avoided posting about this story because it literally makes me feel like throwing up but I’m here to say: I think it was sweat but if it was period-related, I feel REALLY bad for her. Honestly. It would be embarassing if it was just a small funeral and she WASN’T famous but.. I just feel really bad for her to the point where I wish people would stop talking about it.

  48. B says:

    Why does she insist on wearing a fedora over that blond mess? She looks like Cousin It. Coupled with the awful tights and t-shirt, it seems to be a favorite ensemble of hers. Fug as all get out.

    I’m right there with whomever said they miss her pin-up look.

  49. Lauren says:

    I am a size 4, and I hate jeans! I discovered Lulu leggings, and they feel silky + no chafing. If i was Christina i would prefer leggings too. Her weight gain is quite shocking. If she wasn’t so damn nasty i would feel sorry for her.

  50. laura says:

    she’s so ghastly looking with all that makeup piled on her face and her hair bleached within an inch of its life….i don’t care how much she weighs, but she looks bloated, not just heavy. get it together girl!

    and she should have taken a cue from her hero and noted how understated ms. etta james performed ‘at last’. etta’s version will give you goose bumps; xtina’s version will make your skin crawl.

  51. dhurga says:

    Again, really folks. What kind of retard judges a vocal performance on appearance? Really? How unnatural of people to find fault with a women who MIGHT have had the natural happen? Maybe y’all prefer anorexic steroided girls who won’t offend you so much. My goodness, GROW UP. It was a lovely vocal performance. All these posts just show how lumpen and coarse the masses are. She’ll end up in history as one of the great voices of our times. Suck it up.

    • Annie says:

      I’m in the too mortified to comment on the mysterious liquid..train.
      However, I do take exception to her performance of the incomparable “At Last” sung by the late, but never forgotten.
      Christina’s version was designed to appeal to the cheap seats…all vibrato no connection..
      The melody and meaning carry the song and you need to let those elements shine.
      She’s incapable of this …her performances are always “look at me” and that is a disservice to Etta James, the song and the occasion..shame on her

    • KLaw says:

      Thank you Dhurga – I thought she did a phenomenal job, and I have some musical education and know every word and note of “At Last”. I was expecting to hate her rendition, but she blew it out of the water. What a voice and what a talent! I don’t know much about her personality, but she’s one of the few female singers out there (in the pop world) that actually has a great voice and TALENT.

      I don’t think she’s inappropriately dressed. Etta was a performer and she would understand. It’s part of the role.

      Oh, and that is totally sweat on her leg. It happens to me anytime I am in a hot environment, and I’m very skinny (and always wearing panties). I just happen to sweat there, and that is exactly how it drips. The worst part is it happens quite suddenly – practically no warning whatsoever. Poor Christina… I’ve been pretty embarrassed in private, so I can’t imagine having it happen on stage…

  52. aprayerforthewildatheart says:

    I think Xtina had her monthly visitor, if it was heavy flow underwear wouldn’t have stopped what happened, very unfortunate and embarrassing for her.

    As for the way she looks, I don’t care that she isn’t thin anymore, but I do think she would be more comfortable if she dressed for her size.

    She doesn’t look as if she’s gained a ton of weight, as in “fat”. This looks like bloat, she looks unhealthy, and like she drinks too much alcohol. She never looks happy, and hasn’t for a while now. There is more going on than just what we see.

    Personally I don’t like it when any celebrity invokes the style of the likes of Marylin Monroe as their go-to look. If it’s for a few performances or a video fine, but these celebs should at least try different looks. So sick of the over-processed bleached blond hair, it looks so unhealthy.

    I’d like to see her get it together as she is very talented.

  53. Meanchick says:

    I think she has an amazing voice and the comments are funny as hell, but I won’t comment only because she did Miss Etta proud at the funeral.

  54. leala says:

    Anal leakage is a common side effect of xenical usage. She has gained a lot if weight and she’s taking a lot if heat for it. The poor girl us likely desperate … you would have to be to use that stuff. I feel sorry for her but I also agree with other posters that her appearance was not appropriate or respectful for a funeral …

  55. Rachel says:

    I still think the most disgusting thing about her performance at the funeral was the vulgar way she oversang every single phrase of that beautiful song!
