Christina Aguilera debuted a pretty slimmed down bod at the Billboard Music Awards earlier this month, which got everyone talking, of course. After all, a lady’s body is only good insofar as being good to look at, and we all know it’s more desirable to look at a skinny body than a “fat” (normal sized) one. Blah blah blah.
Anyway, some “insiders” have now claimed that Christina – who has famously been outspoken about how much she loves her curves – decided to drop the weight after pretty much being harassed by the general public about her weight.
From US Weekly (via DS):
“A lot of people were on her about her weight and it depressed her,” a friend said. “She went through a bad time because of the criticism.”
Aguilera is said to have signed up for the 1,600-calorie-a-day Fresh Diet program, which offers users different nutritious food options.
“She did it all on her own,” said the source. “She goes online and picks out her food.”
Here’s one thing I will never, ever understand: why the fuck you would pay someone to bring you fresh food instead of… going shopping for fresh food. I guarantee you that “fresh diet” costs about $300 per week – which she could easily get a month’s worth of healthy food for one on. As someone who’s working on shedding some pounds myself (and more than Xtina’s 20), I still relish my laziness but I can at least bring myself to pick out some healthy food options. Lord.
Anyway, it’s a shame that people still bully women about their bodies (no one harasses James Gandolfini about his massive gut) and that it got to her enough to change. Losing weight and being healthy as great, but it should be for the right reasons – health, YOURSELF – rather than anyone else or it’ll just come right back when the outside world inevitably doesn’t like something else about you. Bullshit.
