Christina Aguilera has lost weight, but she’s still orange: improving & cute?

Here are some new photos of Christina Aguilera and her boyfriend Matt Rutler at LAX over the weekend. I actually think Christina has been making an effort to not get pap’d and not show up on every red carpet lately, so these photos feel like the first time I’ve seen her in a few months. I know, I know – she recently made an appearance on The Voice or something, but I don’t watch that show. Let’s see… she was on The Voice last week, showing off her new figure – you can see a photo here. Christina went on hiatus from The Voice this season to work/promote her new album, but she will return for Season 5, which will begin airing this September. Christina reportedly scored a contract of something like $17 million. Is she really worth that much? RLY?

Christina has definitely lost some weight since I’ve seen her last. Good for her. I guess at the end of the day, she wasn’t so proud of her “curves” after all. I told you that would happen. But I’m pleased that she seems to be less of a drunken mess, which is what I think the weight gain was really about: empty liquor calories. Xtina wore a t-shirt that reads “Live fast cause it won’t last”. I don’t get it. Is this along the same lines as “You might as well drink, party, do drugs and damage your body because you might be hit by a bus tomorrow”?

Last thing – you notice her unnatural orange skin even more when she’s standing next to someone without a vat of fake bronzer and foundation seeped into every pore. Gross.

    she looks great! extra weight on her looks terrible.. it makes her look deformed and disfigured.

    • what?! says:

      “deformed and disfigured”? thats a great insult especially to those who are actually deformed and disfigured. seriously, just because she was heavier? i seriously hope no one else is prone to your level of ingorance AND stupidity.

    She looks rested and healthy. I will never watch The Voice (or any other singing competition show) but for some reason I am glad that she is back on that show. She is more qualified than most people to judge singing talent.

    • Rachel says:

      For the first couple seasons, she was a really shitty judge. She was completely blase and spoke to everyone as if she really just couldn’t be bothered to actually listen to them and give constructive criticism. She was downright hateful to any woman she thought could upstage her and to a few other contestants she just didn’t like. She was pretty vile. But the last season she was on, she did pretty well. She seemed really invested in her contestants and tried to give constructive criticism. I was happy to see she had already started to dry out at that point.

      • blaize says:

        I saw all of season 2, but I only saw two episodes of season 1 and none of seasons 3 or 4. From what I saw she gave both compliments and constructive criticism to contestants on all teams and she fake-bickered with the other judges (I loved the banter and jabs between the judges).

        I remember people being mad about the things she said about Tony Lucca, but I thought everything she said about him was true and people were being oversensitive. Simon Cowell has been much harsher to contestants over the years.

        I wish I had watched more of the voice in seasons 1, 3, and 4. I feel so out of the loop. But none of their winners seem to become stars- not like on X Factor.

    This idea that being proud of your curves and losing weight are mutual exclusive doesn’t jive with me. That said, it isn’t easy to do so congrats to her. Adopting a more human shade of skin and hair would’ve been a bigger improvement though, IMO.

    • Rachel says:

      I agree with Kaiser that a great deal of her weight gain was alcohol consumption. She was so bloated and boozy. I don’t think her weight loss contradicts her stance on loving her curves. She’s still curvy. She hasn’t starved off her curves. She just looks healthy and sober. And I’m happy to see her like this. She has one of the greatest voices I’ve ever heard, and I hope now she’ll get back to making good music.

      • zizi says:

        Absolutely. Christina’s weight was definitely due to dumping empty booze calories into her system. It looked unhealthy on her not because everyone should be a size 2, but because it reflected her substance abuse.

        I also feel like interviews with celebs who have gained weight lock them into that “love my curves” answer. I mean, if they admit any insecurities about the weight gain then they’re slammed for contributing to fat-shaming, to upholding stereotypical ideas of how a woman is “supposed” to look. There’s so much pressure to be evolved and aspirational and in-control when it comes to celebrity PR. I get not wanting to slap other women in the face who are the same size or bigger even if she ultimately knew that her weight gain came from an unhealthy place and she needed to make a change.

  5. Joanna says:

    now she needs to get of the trashy blonde color and stop with the orange stuff

  6. LadyJane says:

    Lets all comment on her weight. (Sigh). She got a bit fat, now she is a bit thin. The end.

  7. Pixie says:

    She looks AMAZING, I can’t believe the transformation! Hard work pays off, it would seem.

  8. Lucy2 says:

    She does look good, I hope she’s doing it in a healthy way.
    If she’d quit with the orange and heavy makeup and go to a darker blonde, I think she’d look amazing.

    • Bee says:

      Yes, totally agree. The more she gets back to her natural self the better, imo. I wish naturally pale-skinned girls would go back to embracing their fair skin, because its certainly preferable to looking like a cheeto. And healthier!

  9. hotpockets says:

    She is glow in the dark orange! I wish she would tone it down with the orange paint.

  10. Jennifer says:

    She looks the best when she is slim tbh. She looks great and happy these days. Good for her. BTW I like that she keeps that transformation private and doesn’t make big deal about it. Respect.

  11. Murphy says:

    I wonder who got her out of that booze haze, whoever it was–good job.

    But I see it happening again in 3-5 years.

  12. Maybe my monitor is off, but I don’t think she looks orange. Definitely still needs to throw some low lights into her hair though. Girl needs some dimension. Did anyone see her Lucky spread a few years back? She looked so real and pretty..

  13. Noinin says:

    Lots of blind items say she got slimmer because she is addicted to some nasty stuff…

  14. DeltaJuliet says:

    That Barbie hair has got to go.

  15. jess says:

    I can’t believe that no one has commented on their shirts together lol. It’s like an emo short story.

    “Life is beautiful. Live fast because it won’t last.”

    hahaha

  16. Madriani's Girl says:

    I totally knew this would happen. When she was fat she kept saying how comfortable and happy she was being a big girl and how she was proud of how she looked. I said then that there was no way she was happy being that size for such a tiny woman and that she was only saying it to hide her self-loathing. Oh gee, she lost weight.

    • blaize says:

      She definitely could have been happy with her curves, since she didn’t even get that big. She went from like 110 pounds to 140-145. She certainly flaunted them enough- she didn’t suddenly start dressing modestly after she gained the weight. Plus, a few years ago when she was thin I remember her saying something about wanting to be curvier in a magazine interview.

      I don’t think her weight loss makes her a hypocrite since it was alcoholism that put the weight on her in the first place. You can be happy with being a size 6-8, but that doesn’t change the fact that alcoholism is dangerous and unhealthy and that you need to stop binge drinking.

    • Bee says:

      I NEVER buy it when a woman says that she’s totally comfortable being obese. All she’s trying to do is keep her self-esteem afloat while she’s working her butt off to lose the excess weight! And you know…maybe we should sort of drop that “I’m comfortable with it” thing. Isn’t that encouraging people to be complacent with their obesity? The emphasis should be on HEALTH. If you’re healthy, and still curvy, that’s wonderful for you. Be proud of it all you like, but don’t glorify being overweight. Ya know?

      • blaize says:

        She wasn’t obese though, she just went from being in the middle of her BMI to being about 13 pounds overweight. And since there’s evidence that people can be overweight and healthy, or slim and unhealthy, I think we should leave most matters of body and health to the individual.

        Most of the scrutiny and criticism that women like Christina, Jessica Simpson, Kim Kardashian, Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson, and some other women in Hollywood have gotten about weight hasn’t legitimately been about health concerns. It’s been about gender-based beauty standards and a sense of public entitlement.

        I was a little overweight when I was in my early teens, and I really did like the boobs, hips, and butt that came with it, but I lost the extra weight mostly through exercise. Diabetes runs in my family, and my parents and grandma started nagging me because of it. My opinion about it is mixed- on the one hand I don’t want to get diabetes, but on the other hand I think: Why should I waste my life worrying about what my health will be at 60? That’s 40 years from now, and anything could happen between now and then. That doesn’t mean I’m going to completely abandon my health, but just how much of my life and energy should I dedicate to it?

    Agree with most. I think she looks adorable here. Prefer her casual than all done up.

  18. Amanda G says:

    She looks much better at a smaller weight. Now if only she can get a personality makeover…
