AIBU to think that Christina Aguilera actually looks good here?

DM link warning Christina Aguilera dares to be seen in public heavier than usual

I think she looks quite nice, really! Despite the DM insinuation that she should be apologetic.

Her face looks nice. She has boobs, hips and a bum and a good waist. I'm pretty sure the men I know would be attracted to her.

And if she's able to give a good, high-energy performance in front of all those people then she's almost certainly fit and healthy, even if she is bigger than when she was 20.

I thought she was a singer. How do her hips affect her singing ability? Let's not get suckered into the misogynistic trap of judging fellow women by their appearance. We're better than that.

I think she looks puffy - looks like booze bloat to me

Mrsjay Mon 19-Nov-12 11:02:08

yabu to link to something that says dares to go out whatever shape although yanbu she looks amazing but she always does, I hate hate hate that women in entertainment are judged and praised about how fabulous they look ,

BupcakesAndCunting Mon 19-Nov-12 11:03:07

She is a singer not a stripper so WHY does she have to perform in a basque and fishnets?

Meh, she's asking for people to comment on her appearance, IMO, and my opinion is that she looks like a chunky drag queen.

FreudiansSlipper Mon 19-Nov-12 11:07:26

No I do not think she looks good she looks too orange

body wise she is similar shape and height to me a few pouns shows i have big boobs too. I personally look better 15lbs lighter have no idea if she does or if she thinks she does

she is a singer but she has also stripped down to very little to promote herself in doing that you will be judged on what you look like

Mousefunk Mon 19-Nov-12 11:08:36

Yes to the drag queen comment. She wears far too much orange make up/tan and doesn't need it, nor does she need the excess eye make up. She by far looked the most beautiful and glamorous when she went through the 1950s phase- she was paler, a little bit of red lipstick, strip of black eyeliner with a small flick and a tad pink blusher.

Not about her weight, she's very pretty and I think curves suit her but she needs to cut down on the make up and her hair in first pic is blah.

I think she overweight and dosnt look better for it but that dosnt impact on her voice, her body shape is her business

FreudiansSlipper Mon 19-Nov-12 11:11:51

in a few months time she will loose weight claim she was binging as she was unhappy then put the weight back on again because she feels more womanly and her partner prefers her that way and be happy again

her very blonde hair, her dress style and the orangeness she is morphing into Miss Piggy though will never be as beautiful

Nancy66 Mon 19-Nov-12 11:13:05

In fairness I hate her voice as well.

all that roaring and warbling and 'ohhh look at me, I can hold onto a note for 30 seconds'....no thanks.

FannyFifer Mon 19-Nov-12 11:16:17

I think she looks fab, much better a bit heavier, not sure about the orange tan though.

Chrysanthemum5 Mon 19-Nov-12 11:19:01

I'm fairly certain if someone were to take hundreds of pictures of me, or any one of us, (as they do on the red carpet) they would have no problem finding some that make me look fat, or ugly or whatever story they wanted to push. I expect in real life she's very happy, and fine with how she looks so why does anyone else care?

Tryharder Mon 19-Nov-12 11:25:24

I agree with Op, I think she looks good. My Dh would almost certainly fancy her!

But I agree with the poster who said it was booze bloat. I saw her on tv last year and she looked dreadful; blowsy and bloated. She looks better now. I quite like her!

suburbandream Mon 19-Nov-12 11:26:19

Give the poor girl a break, she looks gorgeous. If she had always been that size no-one would be commenting, but because she has DARED to put on weight the papers feel free to criticise her.

Halfling Mon 19-Nov-12 11:27:38

No she doesn't. I have no issues with her body though. It's just her heavy handed makeup. Her face seems to be melting.

I think that a breezy natural look will complement her current persona better.

Mintyy Mon 19-Nov-12 11:29:33

I just can't get past the amount of makeup she wears and her godawful porny look I'm afraid. I always notice that about her before anything else.

LessMissAbs Mon 19-Nov-12 11:30:23

Shes a performer surely, not just a singer Cogito? Whether she looks good or not is subjective, I certainly wouldn't want to look like her and I hope shes not viewed as a role model because her she is carrying a lot of flab (equally Nikki Minaj further down has been apparantly cosmetically enhanced to achieve her odd shape).

I think the whole image of Chritina Aguilera is overdone, from the excessively blond hair, the overdone make up, the orange tan, even the voice and the way she sings.

However I suspect most overweight people in their early thirties could look as "good" as she does with a make up team and stage lighting.

I don't think she is fat, but she looks bloody awful. Too much orange makeup and blonde hair.
Didn't she once slate Kelly Osbourne for being fat.

squeakytoy Mon 19-Nov-12 11:36:37

She looks fine, but there is no denying that she is carrying excess weight on her hips, backside and thighs..

Alisvolatpropiis Mon 19-Nov-12 11:37:31

She looks overweight. And orange.

It doesn't impact her voice though so <shrug>

whiteandyelloworchid Mon 19-Nov-12 11:38:43

its just depressing another female singer dress in next to nothing, men dont have to lower themselves to this

Alisvolatpropiis Mon 19-Nov-12 11:39:08

forehead yes she did. I read an interview by the now v slim Kelly O and she said (paraphrasing) "she called me fat when I was really young and vulnerable. She's fat now. So she can fuck right off. Gutted"

LessMissAbs Mon 19-Nov-12 11:49:54

To balance it out, the men (whose pictures you can see on another DM online article) - Will I Am, Sean Kingston and Psy - are hardly prime athletic physical specimens either. They all just look like people you would see in any high street, but primped and primed by backstage teams. Though tbh you would think that amount of primping and priming would produce a better result!

fromparistoberlin Mon 19-Nov-12 12:52:13

yabu for the phrase: DM link warning

if people want to link I dont care, but dont apologise! if you want to read celeb gossip and immigrant bashing, hold your head up high!!

2muchtimeonmyhands Mon 19-Nov-12 13:06:09

Figure wise i think she carries it well (maybes not in the corset) my only critisism would be, that when shes singing in that photo she looks like vanessa felts, that and she needs to lose the orange glow.
