Christina Aguilera burst out into the scene like a Genie in a Bottle, and everyone wanted to see what was next for the former Mickey Mouse Club Mousketeer. She was a beauty on so many magazine covers, but that took a lot of work to maintain.
In a recent interview with Health, Christina Aguilera admitted that she hated that “super skinny” look that she kept throughout the 1990’s. There was so much pressure on her and she “hated being super skinny.”
Now Christina Aguilera is enjoying this stage of her career much more where a body positive outlook overcomes any extreme dieting measures.
“I think we all have our good days and our bad days in how we feel about ourselves. Entering this business, I hated being super skinny,”
“Once I turned 21, I started filling out a little bit, and I was loving my new curves. I appreciated having a booty.”
“I have a hard time looking at the early pictures of myself because I remember feeling so insecure. I would never want to relive my 20s — you’re so in your own head and finding your confidence.”
“As you age, you stop comparing yourself to other people and start appreciating your own body and owning it.”
“With age, you figure out that life is too short to waste time thinking about what other people think about you. I’ve realized I am making memories for myself and that I shouldn’t worry about what other people think.”
The mother of two can be a source of inspiration for others now. Too many people go through life worrying about what others think about how they look that it takes enjoyment out of things. Christina realizes the struggle, and she is a prime example that you don’t have to hold yourself to any of those standards.
