Well, not her new hair, that’s not awesome. Look at that mess. And not her new music, either. Ok, so really, the only reason that I’m officially declaring Christina Aguilera‘s awesomeness is because of this one thing she said in this interview she did with Billboard.
Here’s the quote, via Celebitchy:
“I told them during this Lotus recording, ‘You are working with a fat girl. Know it now and get over it.’ They need a reminder sometimes that I don’t belong to them. It’s my body. My body can’t put anyone in jeopardy of not making money anymore-my body is just not on the table that way anymore.”
YES. GIRL. YES.
I love this. I love it so hard. I am so, so proud of Christina for being a lady in Hollywood and being brave enough to say “it’s my body.” I am so proud of her for taking the word “fat” for what it is: an adjective, not an insult. I am so amazingly happy that a woman as famous as Christina Aguilera is making statements like these. You guys, I’m just seriously, seriously happy about this.
I just think it’s so important that Christina Aguilera is saying things like this, because if she says it, then maybe people will actually hear it. Her body is her body, and she can do whatever she wants with it. She doesn’t owe anyone anything when it comes to her body. She doesn’t owe it to you to be thin. She’s not hurting you in any way, shape, or form by gaining weight. To quote Christina herself, “know it now and get over it.”
And I’ll let my good friends Salt-n-Pepa really drive the point home:
