Christina Aguilera: 'I won't diet for anyone!'
Tuesday 27 November 2012
She spoke about loving her fuller figure recently, and Christina Aguilera looked confident and happy when she was pictured in a clingy wrap-around dress at the American Music Awards in LA last week.
Christina has said that flaunting her size 14 curves is 'liberating'
Thought to be a size 14, the defiant star has told pals she has no intention of dieting her curves away, declaring: “It’s liberating!”
The singer, who turns 32 next month, has yo-yoed over the years. She lost 2st 8lbs in four months after having son Max in 2008. She worked out for 90 mins, five days a week, and watched her diet to fit into her “extra small” jeans, thought to be a size 6.
However, she appeared to have put on about 1st within three months in 2010 and, earlier this year, was reported to have gained over 4st since she first found fame as a size 6-8 in 2002.
But Christina – who is dating production assistant Matthew Rutler after divorcing Max’s dad, music mogul Jordan Bratman, last year – said recently: “The challenge I’ve always had is being too thin, so I love that I have a booty now.”
A source says: “Christina says she has never felt sexier and loves her bum, stomach and thighs. She says she feels more womanly and is getting male attention – not least from Matthew! She says her sex life is better than ever. She’s eating hearty dinners and can’t resist pulled pork and cheesy mash.”

The star has had a turbulent couple of years. She was arrested in 2011 for public intoxication and there have been several reports this year of excessive drinking and “out of control” behaviour. Although she’s reported to have told her record company: “You’re working with a fat girl. Get over it,” she denied saying the comment.
However, she said recently: “I have spoken about embracing curves. It’s always been something that I’m comfortable with.”
Now pals say Christina – who was reportedly offered £1.85m to be the face of a dating website for plus-size women – wants to have another baby.
A source says: “Christina says she’s always watched her diet and this is the first time in years she can enjoy herself. She won’t be pressured into losing weight – especially as she hopes to fall pregnant.”
