Does Christina Aguilera wear ‘silicone butt pads’ to make her booty look rounder?

When we saw those photos of Christina Aguilera at the American Music Awards a few weeks ago, several things became increasingly clear: one, Christina does not go for “quality” with her wigs or weaves, because that sh-t looks like discount Barbie hair. Two, Christina couldn’t find a flattering dress if you paid her a billion dollars. Three, Christina has gained weight. I’m trying not to be body-shaming about it, but it is an empirical fact: Christina has gained weight. She admits as much herself, although she talks about her weight gain not in terms of “I eat horribly and drink like sailor” but more of “I gained weight, girl power!” Still, it was kind of odd to see her weight gain at the AMAs, because from the waist up, she looked like the same Christina we had been covering for months, and from the waist down, it was like “OMG BADONKADONK.” So what caused this assy surge? (Gross.) Star Mag has some theories!

Binge-drinking and emotional eating may be to blame for turning Christina Aguilera into a plus-sized woman in recent months. But far from worrying about her increasing size, Christina has seemingly embraced it, constantly telling interviewers how much she loves her body – and her booty in particular.

Aguilera may be changing her tune however. On November 18, at the American Music Awards, she wore a form-fitting Pamella Roland gown that showed off a new, bizarrely perky bubble butt (like Kim Kardashian) and experts are now speculating that she’s recently spent some quality time with a plastic surgeon.

“It could be likely that she has had liposuction to the waist and fat injection to the buttocks,” says Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Garo Kassabian. “This would create a more shapely rear and a thinner waist for a sexier silhouette.”

Insiders say that Christina could have also been sporting foam or silicone “butt pads” under her dress.

The “butt pads” idea is enchanting me. I believe (strongly believe) that Pippa Middleton’s famous ass was made of lies during the royal wedding, and I wrongly assumed that the only women who would go for butt pads would have similar, Pippa-esque body types. But what if Christina, in the midst of a whirlwind, two-year bender of Scotch and Doritos, was like, “Yeah, I want my ass to look BIGGER”? It feels like something she would totally do. And it’s less of an ordeal that getting lipo and having the fat injected into your butt. Right?

    Hmm…there is so much wrong happening here I better just go pour myself another cup of coffee instead.

  2. I.want.shoes says:

    Spanx makes undergarments that come with a padded ass.

    But Xtina’s is all natural (booze) and has been that size for a while (as we’ve all had the pleasure of witnessing in those leggings she constantly wears).

  3. Rhea says:

    At least she could…ehmm…looks better in here than usual..

  4. anneesezz says:

    If so, it’s only to make her tummy, arms and thighs look smaller. She is HUGE!

  5. daz says:

    The doctors spoilt for choice when it comes to taking the fat from a part of her body and shoving it in ass.

  6. Ellie66 says:

    She looks like a Disco Oompa Loompa.

  7. marta says:

    She is hollywood fat but in the real world shes the size of the average woman in the mall.

    • pau says:

      I certainly wouldn’t call her fat. She is out of shape. But that’s not even the problem! The problem is that SHE WEARS CLOTHES THAT ARE TOO SMALL AND UNFLATTERING. I honestly don’t care how much weight she puts on, as long as she makes it look good.

  8. HadleyB says:

    She never had a nice high round booty though even thin. They used to photoshop it to make it appear bigger, higher and rounder.

    Just because one gains weight doesn’t mean you get a booty that everyone wants… I am sure it got bigger/wider but she doesn’t appear to be working out so its not a nice butt.

    I can see her wearing the pads, even with the weight gain. Because it’s probably just a fat flat booty instead of a small flat booty.

  9. Pnnylne says:

    She needed it. Her booty looked like Spongebob was chilling in the back of her pants.

  10. serena says:

    Oh god she’s so ridiculous with that than and make up -wtf is that brown blush?- oh, and of course the wig.. god her stylist and make-up person must be really dumb or hate her.

  11. Mrsgarrett11 says:

    So I’ve been following Christina since she first appeared all those years ago and she has never had a booty when she gained weight she gained hips and thighs still had a flat bottom now I’ve watched the voice from the beginning and this last season when she got on stage I almost dropped my martini lol I was like where she get that butt now if you ask me she did a Kim k and everyone else with the butt craze and got micro fat injections which FYI can’t be detected in an X-ray lol .. By the way my butt is natural plump :-)

  12. roxy750 says:

    She is “utterly” gross. Sorry, but I can’t believe this is the same girl that was so adorable and sexy in her “genie in a bottle” days. She was awesome…now, ugh she is going down the Lohan path, looking older than what she really is. Ugh….gross. (and I really don’t like being negative towards other women’s looks but ….I mean…ya know).

  13. jessiesgirl says:

    She absolutely has butt pads. Its an attempt to make her waist looks smaller. She started adding for pap shots too. But, just like her wigs, she does not go for quality, hence the odd shape.

  14. Hillshmill says:

    What’s going on with the inside of her left elbow/arm? Is that a tattoo or something else? Looks sketchy to me.

  15. cc says:

    What is wrong with her skin? O_O

    • Lady Satan says:

      CC: Constant exposure to the chemical soup that is self-tanner would be my best guess.

      I really can’t see how constantly covering your skin, head to toe, in some chemical concoction is healthy. I think I’ll stick to (lightly) tanning the natural way!

  16. yolo says:

    ..she makes my eyes hurt..

    those brown streaks across her cheeks are just the tip of the iceberg of awfulness going on in these pics. it’s so sad, she has so much potential to be great…but she need a prison style scrub down first and then a STYLIST asap!..can you even imagine all that brown spray tan and glitter circling the drain?! *ew*

    • victoria1 says:

      The “contouring” is supposed to make her face thinner. Of course she wears pounds of makeup for the lighting she’ll be exposed to on the red carpet.
      Reason I’m defending her, I feel bad for her. She is trying to rock a curvy look and be “empowered” or whatever. If she wants to stay this way, fine. Just go on what not to wear and Stacy and Clinton can give her a make-under.
      The butt pads theory is hilarious to me, after seeing the youtube video the other day I can’t even imagine the lengths women go to get an ass when most are trying to lose theirs.

  17. Lady Satan says:

    It’s a shame, if she wasn’t orange, bought clothes that fit & flattered (lose the leggings!), and lost about 1/2 pound of the make-up she’d be a curvy attractive woman.

  18. KellyinSeattle says:

    Giving Kim K. a run for her money.
    I can’t stand the Cleopatra-bangs/her entire hair.
    I get the impression she’s trying to portray that she’s a real siren….Christina, leave that to Mariah Carey.

  19. megan says:

    ummm…i like how the shading of her eyeshadow closely follows the shading in her dress.

  20. TheOneAndOnly says:

    Here’s a radical thought; instead of worrying over this cosmetic bs, why hasn’t she learned, after all these years, to compose her own songs and perform them live in at minimum two hour concerts before thousands; isn’t that what singers live to do, not play act on some pointless staged “talent” show? Just my take. (No, I’m not a fan of generic overproduced dance pop where the lyrics, outfits, and presentation are now pretty much interchangeable.)

      You’re either very young or you ‘were’ very young between 1999 to 2006 during Christina’s hey day. Say what you will personally about the woman, but she was always praised for giving great live concerts, where she even danced on stage while singing (do you hear that, Britney?). And she wrote or co-wrote every song on her ‘Dirrty’ CD except for “Beautiful.”

      Speaking of her ass … girl has always had it, even during her ‘skinny’ days.

      • TheOneAndOnly says:

        If that’s true i take some of it back; but here’s the thing, and I know this is apples to oranges or something, Robert Plant and the band of Joy, Eric Clapton, and yes Pete Townsend and Roger Daltry of the WHo, are still cranking it out and haven’t gone done this cheezy path, and yes I know it’s different for male rock icons than a female pop star (sorry, she’ll never compare to Robert Plant and Zep; not even close), but surely why can’t someone close to her point her back on track and away from this fakery. Dancing on stage and singing is expected check out James Brown, Ike and Tina turner or Jimi at Woodstock. They could sing/dance circles around Xtina, and their music was way better. I know different genres and time periods, but still?

    Look how small her frame is in the 3rd photo down. Her shoulders are so small and narrow. This weight gain does not suit her natural shape. It looks so weird on her.

    • Amanda G says:

      I agree with this! I know we are all supposed to say she’s not fat and she’s a “normal” weight in the real world, but it isn’t true. She looks TERRIBLE. She does not carry the weight well. She’s too short and her frame is too slender to pull off the weight gain. I’m not saying she has to be stick thin again like she was 2 years ago for Burlesque, but a 15lb loss would do wonders!! And of course a style and personality makeover…

  22. Jayna says:

    A couple of us already said this on another article. I am a huge Christina fan (minus her messy looks and unnecessary runs these days in singing live), and she never had a butt before, ever. These butt pads just makes her look heavier than she is.

    But I am here to say I love love love her new album, Lotus. I am shocked at how much I like it and it should be doing better than it is saleswise. Sadly, I think it’s her messy looks and unflattering clothes making her weight gain look worse is what didn’t help it. She just looks like a mess half the time and not in a cool way. That’s the problem. Her album has lots of heartfelt ballads, but also pop dance songs and she wants to come out with no clothes on and boots looking like a mess. If you want to do this kind of album and performance, the public isn’t buying a hot mess up on stage stuffed into barely anything, pantless.

    Plus, her vocals live have been iffy a few times. Drop a few pounds, but mostly get in shape, and eat right and don’t drink heavily, Christina, and don’t shout, just belt. There’s a difference live and you can get it back with work or your lessers will keep sounding better singing live. On the album she sounds amazing and it’s fantastic.

      I’m a huge Christina Aguilera fan as well, and I say girl has always had butt. Don’t believe me? Just pull up her “Dirrty” video at YouTube. Even that tiny, she had ass.

  23. Samigirl says:

    Oh absolutely! I guess that’s the big thing to do now? Have a big, round booty? I see it on jerseylicious too. I just don’t see why people can’t be happy with their own shape? And if she wants her waist to be smaller…she could stop drinking and hit the gym!

  24. Emma - the JP Lover says:

    People without certain features or body attributes ‘must’ stop assuming that no body else can have these things naturally just because ‘they’ aren’t so blessed … be it full lips, high cheek bones, smooth skin, great hair, nice nose, or a firm round butt.

    Christina is carrying her weight in her stomach, ass, and thighs. We can ‘all’ see that, so why the surprise about how much bigger her butt has gotten?

  25. Mean Hannah says:

    All I can think of is, where can you get butt pads? I have a bony butt and could use the cushioning.

  26. darth says:

    If she is tweaking her ass on purpose she’s a damn idiot, because her ass looks disproportionate and disgusting. Same with K. Kardashian. I think I’m too embarrassed to be a Christina Aguilera fan any more. If her new album kicked ass it would be one thing. But if even her music is going down the shitter then what’s left to like?
