Christina Aguilera Covers 'Marie Claire' February 2012

Christina Aguilera Covers 'Marie Claire' February 2012

Christina Aguilera takes the cover of Marie Claire‘s February 2012 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (January 17).

Here’s what the 31-year-old singer and celebrity coach on The Voice had to share:

On her body: “I’ve been through my highs, I’ve been through my lows; I’ve been through the gamut of all things in this business. Being too thin. Being bigger. I’ve been criticized for being on both sides of the scale. It’s noise I block out automatically. I love my body. My boyfriend loooves my body. My son is healthy and happy, so that’s all that matters to me.”

On single motherhood: “It’s hard not having the consistency of a partnership on a daily basis. It’s a struggle. But I can’t single out my ex-husband [as the problem] because he’s a devoted father and great with my son. We always make sure that we put Max first. I have help from family and good people around me in support of my career. I couldn’t do what I do without a strong team behind me.”

FYI: Christina rocked an Emporio Armani blazer and a Marlies Dekkers bodysuit for her shoot.

    she loves her body but doesnt mind photoshoping it for magazine cover?

  • Balisandra

    @blah:

    EVERY SINGLE photo in magazines is photoshoped.

    Christina is drop-dead Gorgeous.

  • Amelie

    WOOOOOOW!
    She looks so beautiful in these pictures!
    I wish she was so natural all the time!
    Can’t wait to see her on The Voice!

  • squared

    She looks great here!

  • GoGurl

    @blah:

    She’s not that humongous, you know. You make it seem like she’s as big as Africa.

    Anyway, she’s such a stunning woman. Who cares about her weight – look at that face! It’s flawless with less make up. Funny how girls use make up to look pretty but in her case she doesn’t seem to need it much.

  • christinalover

    her body and her face are just soooooo great and beautiful. like this a lot more than all those topmodel shootings!

  • Josie

    I’m not her fan but I must say that I really like her comment about single motherhood. I hate when divorced mothers, for example Reese Witherspoon, who raises her children together with her ex-husband, talk like they were all alone and their lives were so hard, like for the “real” single mothers who have no support from the fathers. I’ve read some inteviews with Reese and she talked like father of her children wasn’t there and dramatized her hard single mother life without the help. Christina acknowledges her ex-husband’s devotion to their son and doesn’t do usual bad-mouthing or public dirty laundry and it’s refreshing, although it should be the norm.

  • Female

    Really, really bad photoshopping. It’s a shocker that the Editor-in-Chief actually saw and approved this. It’s like they tried to thin out her face.

  • Rocky

    @Josie:

    ITAWU!

  • OHNO

    she seriously looks gorgeous and i think she has grown up a lot since she has had her child and divorced.
    wish her all the best

  • sara

    lmao. she isn’t the one who photoshop the pics loser. the photographer does.

    She looks really good. I love her body too

  • britt

    i think shes stunning and a really beautiful person on the inside and out. people need to stop judging her on her image and focus on her talent. shes got curves and shes embracing them, brilliant rolemodel to girls and ladies all around the world. she represents girl power, love her!

  • Callie

    She looks so much better when she wears clothing that fits and goes with subtle makeup. I wish she’d darken her hair a little bit too. She should stick with this look.

  • Erica

    Looking good Xtina!!!! I like it when she goes easy on the makeup!!!

  • Danielle

    Want to see what happens when paparazzi get bored with chasing celebs and turn the cameras on each other? It’s Hilarious!!! http://exposarazzi.blogspot.com/2012/01/when-paps-get-bored-they-film-each.html

  • jessa

    ok WOW that cover is STUNNING.
    it’s really something to be said when someone actually looks their absolute BEST with minimal makeup.
    AMAZING!

  • blah

    paid comments much? or xtina have too much time commenting about herself? U there Xtina?

  • WTH

    For once a woman ( or human) that doesn’t dishes on her ex for the sake of her child. good.

  • PARTY TIME

    CHRISTINA DOOKIE’S IN THE SHOWER!!!!!!! HAHAHA

    LOVE,
    HAHA NO LIE!!!!! HAHAHA

  • jess

    so damn beautiful.

  • speaktruth

    I know she said “I love my body” first, but I still get the feeling that her boyfriend’s approval is more important to her about her body than her own, which is sad to me. I think she kind of just blew the opportunity of self-embracing her figure by saying she likes it because her boyfriends loves it.

  • fan megan fox

    in fact looks very old

  • Annie

    She’s soooo right about how weight is so criticised from both sides. Some people on gossip boards seem so incredible fussy about a woman’s weight, like 125lb = OMG too skinny eat a cheeseburger but 129lb= whoa, porking up, go work out! Christina fluctuates quite dramatically from skinny to voluptous and back which is bound to attract comments, but the thing is the media don’t just *comment* they go on and on and on when all Christina wants is to be known for her singing. It has to get frustrating, I think I’d be paranoidly trying to gain weight one minute and paranoidly trying to lose it the next.

  • Guy

    She looks really nice and it’s cool to know there are females in the industry not obsessed with being a size zero. I think that she looks nice in this picture, I know she might have been photoshopped (not hate but you know they photoshop everything) but she’s not squished into it. She looks awesome bigger, hopefully she will set a healthier trend in Hollywood.

  • Dooley

    In a lot of interviews she says I Love my Curves…What you have Xtina is Fat not Curves..But if you Love your Fat dress for the body you have now..You can’t photo shop LIVE Performances…Also to bad she doesn’t Love her Skin the way she loves her Fat because that color she has been spraying on for years doesn’t exist on this Planet.

  • sea

    Rachel Weisz, Charlize Theron and Paz Vega are beautiful women. Aguilera is just embarassing, pretending to like her bloated body and face.

  • [~Fug Face Man!ston~]

    …she’s fat.

  • ovn2

    I liked reading this interview

  • chris

    it is funny! people are always saying that you shouldn´t judge others by their looks, and look everyone is judging. It doesn´t how she looks as long as she keeps doing what she is good at, which is singing. Everyone that is critiizing her should think twice because people are beautiful now matter what others say!!!!

  • Lady

    @sea, way to prove everyone’s point about beauty by slamming a beautiful woman like Christina, yet praising pencil-thin, Hollywood ideals like the three women you named. So, I guess a woman thicker and shorter than Charlize cannot possibly be beautiful. This woman is such an inspiration and I really hope that this next era of her career, people start to realize it. She’s one of the few non-phony people in Hollywood. She puts her family before her career and cares about the quality of her life, not just material. Very inspiring role model for women and girls (and men too) around the world!

  • Jojo

    She is a disgusting pig
    A total hasbeen,
    She is photoshopped to an inch of her life on
    That magazine cover it looks NOTHING like her!
    That no talent hog needs to fall back.

  • XxX

    I can’t stand this stupid girl! She always acts like she’s the only one that goes through any of life’s little problems , She makes such a big deal out of stupid stuff and tells everyone how great she is!
    She is SO unrelatable and unlikable.
    Not to mention her voice is completely obnoxious.
    HATE her!

  • Goddess

    Ok, There is “photoshop” and then there is Airbrushing someone beyond recognition! They shaved off about 10 inches off her waist and gut, shortened her long boobs about a foot and a half , Eraced three of her chins and re shaped her fat face!
    How embarrassing! She still has to walk around all flabby and gross while this is on the newstands.
    Yuck!

  • Moves

    LOVE HER ! a smart, talented, beautiful woman

  • http://@72 ella

    I hate how she referred to Max as ‘my son’ just after talking about how great a father her ex-husband is…they might not be married still but that little boy is still ‘their’ son not just hers…

  • Aguilera is the best

    Christina Aguilera is the most sane, smart, talented, epic of all her peers.

    I cannot wait for her new album!

    0,0000000001 pound or 99999,9999999999999 pounds, Christina Aguilera remains the most incredible of singers!!!!!!

    The haters can stay mad and jealous!!!!!!!!! Poor haters, they know Christina Aguilera always makes their favorite artists sound like pure crap in comparison!!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHHAHAHA. Christina, the queen of vocals!!!!! Queen of singing and music!!!!!!!!!!! For nearly TWO DECADES, now!!!!!!!!

    HAHHAHAHA!!!!!!
    I am a proud fan of Aguilera.

  • Xtina poops on stupid haters

    @blah:

    People who work in graphics and computers photoshop pictures all the time. That’s their f*cking job. Christina Aguilera has no say in this, it has nothing to do with her!! The way they make their magazines and print their magazines HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH CHRISTINA, you clueless dumb@ss.

    Every single freaking picture you see in billboards, posters, poscards, magazines, newspapers, ETC is always photoshopped for esthetic or technical reasons and whatnot. It’s not just people that are photoshopped, either. It’s EVERYTHING. Landscapes, animals, objects, ETC!!!!!!

    Can everybody stop f*cking crying over Photoshop, already???

    Christina Aguilera still very much looks like her real self in real life in these pictures ANYWAY!!!!!! So why the f*ck are the haters crying, I don’t even know. You haters are all so nuts and bitter. You can stay like that!!!!!!!

  • Lord

    She is a sad human being. So hatful and ugly from the inside out.
    Truly disgusting
