For anyone that watches NBC's popular show, The Voice, it's clear that celebrity judge, Christina Aguilera, has some pretty strong opinions. While she is she taking Season 4 off to focus on her new alubm, Lotus (set for release on November 13th), she now turns her battle effort from Adam Levine to her label company.
Aguilera has had that blonde haired blue eyes look from the beginning, despite her Ecuadorian heritage, along with an extremely petite frame. While Christina's weight has long been a favored topic of the media, she's not at all ashamed of her new, voluptuous figure. She's been pressured to be "toothpick thin" for the majority of her music career, but now she's staying just the way she is. Her record company fought with her and called an "emergency meeting" about the need to maintain her skinny appearance during her Stripped (2002) and Back to Basics (2006) tours. But for her new album, Lotus, she is standing firm and told her label that her body weight was not up for discussion.
"I told them during this Lotus recording, 'You are working with a fat girl. Know it now and get over it," she said. "My body can't put anyone in jeopardy of not making money anymore–my body is just not on the table that way anymore. (Huffington Post)
So far the label hasn't demanded she alter her appearance and her new album is set to release on November 13th. We're proud of Christina for sticking up for new full figure and we can't wait to hear the new songs!
