Christina Aguilera has released a music video for “Your Body,” the first single off her upcoming Lotus album and wasn’t afraid to show off her own body regardless of a few extra pounds.
The “Dirrty” girl did her pink and lavender hair justice by creating an entire video centered around pastel colors and vintage props.
Originals by D*Face, Shephard Fairey, and Banksy filled the trailer park home and added some artistic “flare” to the video.
One of the original pieces of art work portrayed Queen Victoria sitting on another woman’s face.
Christina paid a lot of attention to the visuals of the video and the rest of her album by hiring the hipster street style photographer Mark Hunter, or The Cobrasnake, to put together the unique images and quirky visual touches.
While the video may come across as “trashy” to the Huffington Post, the pop mistress finds the video and her album to be “ahead of its time.”
Aguilera actually didn’t seem to be surprised that not everyone was being receptive to her personal form of art, admitting that the album is definitely a new direction for her.
“I took an entirely different approach as typically I go for one look, one sound and a very distinct genre,” the Voice coach explained. “For the album I really wanted to put music on the record that felt good, that moved me and just let myself be less limiting.”
Xtina has also revealed that the new album, named after a symbolic flower that “can withstand even the harshest conditions and still remain strong and beautiful,” represented her current state of mind.
“I really feel free and not as serious as I have been in the past,” the 31-year-old told ABC. “This album represents a rebirth for me, going through a few interesting years and coming out stronger… I have always been one to encourage perseverance. This album represents that.”
The album shows off her perseverance, and it also reflects just how comfortable the singer is in her own skin.
Throughout the “Your Body” video, the “Fighter” crooner was dressed in a variety of risqué outfits and had several love scenes with men before they ultimately fell to the soulful crooner’s demise.
As if it were a sexy portrayal of a black widow love story, Xtina made love to several men before she decided to quit them by killing them.
In an interview with Billboard, Aguilera revealed that she wasn’t just comfortable filming the scandalous love scenes, but she was also comfortable being a “fat girl” now.
“You are working with a fat girl. Know it now and get over it,” the 31-year-old Voice coach told her record label. “They need a reminder sometimes that I don’t belong to them. It’s my body.”
The mother of one admitted she was actually tired of being “toothpick thin” and was glad to have a body with a lot more curves, but of course her label didn’t agree.
“The called this serious emergency meeting about how there was a lot backlash about my weight,” the powerhouse vocalist told Billboard. “Basically, they told me I would affect a lot of people if I gained weight – the production, musical directors.”
The curvaceous beauty certainly isn’t over weight, and nothing about her body is unhealthy or unnatural. It seems as if Hollywood’s obsession with a perfectly thin woman still hasn’t faded away and by criticizing a body like Christina’s the media will only make younger women who aren’t a size two feel worse about their own bodies.
Stepping up for all women with a little curve, the “Candyman” singer was proud to reveal that she loved her new body and insisted that her body “can’t put anyone in jeopardy of not making money anymore.”
