Christina Aguilera subdued the clown makeup, lost weight, and looks great

Christina Aguilera

I’ve been harshly judging Christina Aguilera for months now. Maybe it’s even been a year? At some point, Christina stopped with the pretenses and she just became a complete and total wreck. It’s not even about her weight, although she is the poster girl for what nonstop alcohol consumption does to your body. Christina’s whole vibe changed. Suddenly she was pap’ing herself pantsless and getting into liquor-soaked catastrophes with her boy-toy, Matt Rutler. Her clown makeup got more and more extreme. She started wearing one pair of leggings for every occasion. She made Etta James’s funeral all about her and her weird sweat/period dribble. She also claimed (repeatedly) that she was very happy with the way she looked, which… I claimed was BS. I thought that whenever Christina lost some weight, all of a sudden we would hear about how happy she was with her weight loss, etc.

So these are some new photos of Christina and her boy Matthew Rutler, last night in LA. Do they both look sh-tfaced? Sure. But Christina is looking SO MUCH better, right? She’s lost a little weight, she bought a new dress that fits (sort of), she decided to wear some “foundation garments” (Spanx), and her hair and makeup is notably improved. Of course, her boobs are still kind of out of control, but isn’t it nice to see them harnessed in and supported? Is this the start of a whole new Christina? I will be very happy if her days as a hot mess are over.

    Now lose that hair color! It doesn’t work for you or Gwen Stefani.

    • kristiner says:

      Actually it does work on Gwen because she’s pale. Who told Christina orange looked good on her?

      Before the yucky tans blond looked good on Christina.

    • Leigh says:

      Yeah. No. It totally works on Gwen Stefani.

    • HA! says:

      I think she looks great! i don’t are abot the hair color, what matters is that she actually looks healthy and that liht makeup is great on jer. She looks like she is relater to Amy Adams…lol…like a cousin or smthg.

  2. duncecap says:

    she looks so much younger without the clown spackle. Her weight has always gone up and down. The horrendous makeup was my biggest pet peeve. Still caked on like crazy, but much better.

    • gg says:

      It is still caked on, but better. I say losing the orange would make the biggest difference.

      Also: Girlfriend needs to just ditch all the dresses. She does NOT have the legs for short dresses. at. all. Hell, Snookie has better legs than Xtina. And hey, it’s okay, I don’t either, and guess what – I refuse to wear dresses, and no probs.

  3. Maya says:

    She is looking better, but I hate the dress.

  4. Rux says:

    She’s look a hair better but I can’t stop looking at her sausage feet trying to burst out of those shoes.

    • Seymour Butts says:

      She doesn’t have the legs for Louboutins.

      • Mimi says:

        But she has the money and the whole rest just doesn’t matter. BTW I think she look lovely and healthy. She is grown up woman and not teenager anymore. I don’t get it why some people just don’t get it and compare her old photos to current ones. It’s stupid.

    • BabyCakes says:

      What Mimi said. I’d be trying to wear the Red Bottoms if I had the money as we all would. I think she looks great. I guess average sized women have no right to wear knee length dresses OR heels. *eyes touching the heavens. The vamp is cut low, it’s supposed to show toe cleavage.

  5. Bite me says:

    baby steps

  6. JB says:

    I was wondering if ya’ll were going to say something- she looked gorgeous last night on The Voice. Quite the transformation.

    • marie says:

      I didn’t watch last nights, but I thought the same think when she was coaching her contestants Monday. And then they showed her live with that black eye shadow that was NOT doing her any favors. She should stick to the lighter colors I think..

    • atorontogal says:

      I agree. I thought she looked great last night. Her toned down hair/makeup are a real step up! Sidebar: that dress makes her boobs look wonky!

    • lucy2 says:

      I agree, on the two episodes this week, she looked really pretty. Cutting off the extensions helped quite a bit too.

    • Jezi says:

      I noticed the night before when she was wearing the black and white dress that she had lost some weight. She removed those nasty extensions and she lightened up on the bronzer. She looked really good and much improved. Someone must’ve pulled her aside and said “girl, you need a makeover and quick”. Or maybe she took a look at herself in that little hat and said, “shit, I gotta do something”.

    • Anna says:

      I totally agree! She looked really nice on Monday, too, and I was thinking, “Good for you! You put ‘the girls’ away and don’t look like a hooker!”

    • Sisi says:

      Apparently she has a new makeup stylist

  7. LittleFATMe says:

    Did she lose weight or is she dressed better. In most of the “fat” pictures of her all I could think was, “Yeah, she gained some weight but if she was dressed nice it wouldn’t looks like SO much!” She still looks heavier than her teeny young adult self, but she doesn’t look huge by any means. She may have finally accepted that going up a size actually can make you look smaller than a small size or spandex. As far as her face, thank God the bloat or over drinking seems to be a thing of the past and I really think she is so cute without the extreme clown makeup!

  8. Marjalane says:

    I noticed that she did look quite a bit better on the voice, but that was TOTALLY negated by her complete BITCH attitude. She is awful- just the cattiest, self absorbed, little snot going. At one point I thought Blake Shelton was going to reach over and slap the bitch right off her face.

    • dj says:

      Ditto. She looks so much better. However, it is difficult for me to watch The Voice because she is so disruptive (interrupting everyone, taking too long to answer) and so rude. Blake just stopped talking the first night because I too thought he was going to go off on her! She is getting super difficult and even sandbagging his team remarks.

    • jermsmom says:

      i think a lot of that between Christina, Blake and Adam is stage – much the same way it was with Simon and Paula. It is supposed to be a competition between teams, right? I think she plays up her diva attitude on purpose. Face it, she does know what she is talking about.
      I think she looks so much better now. I am pulling for her.
      But did anyone catch that comment she made about being the only sober coach up there??? I died laughing!!!

  9. Minky says:

    I think she looks lovely here! I hope this is a turn around and that her days as a hot mess really are over.

  10. Nanz says:

    Honest to goodness question: are false eyelashes an every-occasion accessory now? I wore some on my wedding day and *I think* to senior prom. But every celebrity pic I see involves falsies. So I just want to know if (once again/per usual) I’m behind the fashion eight ball.

    Ps she looks great!

  11. heatheradair says:

    The hair is SUCH an enourmous improvement — I spy NO foundation on the hair in these pics, either…..

    It’s about damn time. yep, she always yo-yo’s (I think back to her dark-haired days of touring with Justin Timberlake and she was quite thick back then, too), and I never knock a girl who’s weight fluctuates (who’s doesn’t?), but the constant “got dressed drunk” look she’d been doing was the issue.

    Clown makeup, bulgy, ill-fitting clothes, spray-tanned hair. No good.

    This: better.

  12. Blue says:

    She looks so much better. I missed this Christina. Those are not her shoes though.

  13. apsutter says:

    She looked great on The Voice on monday! As soon as I saw her I thought she looked sooo much better! She didn’t have crazy make-up on and you can really tell from her face that she lost some weight. I feel kind of bad for her because she’s a pear shape so it’s so much more difficult to hide a little extra weight.

  14. Holden says:

    Didn’t she go to rehab after a recent shitastrophe?

  15. Jackie says:

    soooo much better. yay!

  16. Amanda G says:

    She looks amazing in those pictures! I think the new weave is the biggest improvement. I’ve been angry with her for the last two years, but I am still rooting for her because of her amazing voice! I hope she’s putting together a great “comeback” album. She should really be capitalizing on The Voice’s success.

  17. Tiffany says:

    I don’t think they look sh-tfaced at all.

    • venny says:

      Neither do I. They look more like they’re trying not to be temporarily blinded by the camera flashes.

  18. MrsBarneyStinson says:

    I really hope she is turning her life around. She looks so great here. :)

  19. jess says:

    She looks alot better. I think that the hair color should be a darker blonde.

  20. Incredulous says:

    She has hypnoboobs!

    • Lola says:

      Lol! What a perfect way to describe it.

    • Kennedy says:

      Haha that second picture is playing some serious tricks on my eyes!

      It’s a shame she’s in train-wreck mode or has been for the past few years because she was one of the only genuinely talented young pop stars during that Britney/Jessica/Xtina/Mandy Moore (lolz) era. Her voice was truly amazing.

  21. velourazure says:

    other than more industrial strength spanx, i don’t see much difference. her face is still orange and her hair is still hideous.

  22. Maria says:

    finally!! an improvement… and no bright, red, clown lips. Now all she needs if a soft bob cut, and the hair darkened to a slightly darker shade of a more natural hue…. she has SUCH potential..she used to be so pretty….and she will be again…she just needs proper styling.

  23. Sara says:

    I can’t tell if she lost weight or if she’s just wearing a dress that isn’t two sizes too small.

    Her hair and make up look WAY better though.

  24. Cleveland Girl says:

    She looks wasted and still awful. The ONLY difference is no lipstick, which probably came off on her martini glass.

  25. Daisy says:

    Maybe her boyfriend manned up and told her she looks better without the clown face and it woke her up! I had a boyfriend do that many years ago and the makeup went bye-bye.

  26. yoyo says:


    I’d forgotten what her actual faced looked like without the 3 inches of drag queen make up.

    She looks so nice in these pics! She’s quite beautiful without all that crap on her face.

  27. Anna says:

    Looks so great! Loved her on the latest Voice episodes.

  28. Beachi206 says:

    YES Christina! I saw about two minutes of The Voice and noticed her hair is shorter and looks much better and her makeup too. So much prettier!

  29. erin says:

    her waist looks tiny–do spanx really do that?? damn!

  30. Ruth says:

    Its amazing what taking off some eyeliner will do for a girl..

  31. John 4rd says:

    well, you can wear rose-colored glasses or whatevs but she’s still got a way to go to simply look healthy. She looks far too heavy in those massive sausage legs, when you can see what she was like before pregnancy. She’s not a heavy woman, dont confuse the fake boobs with where her natural weight should be. She started out averaging much less. She should cut out the alc for sure.

  32. kibbles says:

    Wow. She looks great now. Glad she ditched the 10 pounds of makeup. I always thought she was naturally pretty. The weight loss looks great on her too. She would look perfect without the breast implants. When will women realize that most of them look better all natural? I hope she doesn’t fall off the bandwagon again.

  33. Lauren says:

    She looks great! Dont be jealous you cant pull of that hair color! Sorrrrrryyyy

  34. Cleo says:

    She looks so much more Irish with that tiny little rosebud mouth like the girl in Lovely Bones.

  35. Christina's fan says:

    She looks great Christina.

  36. Jennifer12 says:

    The grown up clothes are a huge help and the softer makeup is so much better. It’s still heavy, but not in tranny territory. The hair color has to go, but at least the extensions aren’t so obvious. Now, if she’d just lose that human accessory and spend some time with her son, it’d be great.

  37. Laura says:

    I love that dress, looks like I’m alone there 😞

  38. Ravensdaughter says:

    Excellent-I bet this means she kicked the bottle-mostly-along with discovering Spanx, etc.
    Nothing makes a woman fat faster (men, too, but not as noticeable) than drinking alcohol and eating and laying around.
    She’s still with that same dorky guy-now there’s some loyalty!
