    Her tan, like her hair, lightens as it rises. It appears the gams were left in the oven a bit too long.

  • SophiaB

    Man, she really needs to lose some weight.

  • davdavdee

    She looks great!

  • Sean

    Xtina LOOKS AMAZING

    Xtina LOOKS AMAZING !!!

  • Stelenafan

    whoa…I love me some Christina but her legs are waaaaaaaaaaaay too tan here. Someone in her camp needs to wheel her in on that tanning stuff. That mess is not good for your skin anyways. And I hate to say it…this is on the verge of being offensive, like she’s trying to become of darker complexion. Me no likey. Christina, please step away from the tanning …but keep rocking your curves girl! I love that about her.

  • Marlonlp7

    Christina Aguilera = Perfection

  • Lily

    Whoa! She actually has a great body! them curves

  • christina aguilera queen best

    best so hot sexy <3 your body

  • anna

    So gorgeous. She’s a true role model who’s always shown women around the world it’s okay to be whatever you wanna be, whether it be skinny or curvy, you’re beautiful no matter what. She’s always said it and she’s always lived after her own words. I have so much respect for that. No matter what people say about her she stays strong, positive and confident.

    She’s more beautiful than ever. <3

  • Anastacia

    now I really don’t get why everyone gave britney such a hard time when she gained weigth.. I mean that was nothing compared to THIS !

  • Lady Gaga

    SO freaking gorgeous! and that ass has no mercy!!! So effin sexy!!!

  • Rihanna

    Flawless face, flawless body, flawless hair, flawless voice

  • Lady Gaga

    @Anastacia: I think it’s the way Britney handled it, she basically took in all the criticisms and had a huge meltdown, unlike Christina who still got her confidence even she’s thicker now.

  • 212

    Xtina looks GREAT

  • sillyme

    Wow, I like her with the extra weight! Is she preggers??? Interesting that both her and Gaga are putting on weight at the same time.

    As for the nominees, what a sorry bunch. Not even worth watching, except maybe to see Lionel Richie.

  • 212

    @Stelenafan: Lol it’s the light

  • jillyro

    Not seeing gorgeous when I look at these pics at all. Her body is good (she is not fat, curvy but not fat), but the overly tanned legs yuck. And her crayola hair is best suited to much younger gals and the too-blond is awful too. Her smile looks weird and stiff too. I say she can look much better than this.

  • lol

    @Rihanna:
    her hair is not real dumbass; therefore, her “hair” can’t be classified as “flawless”. Her “body” is under clothes, no one has a “flawles” body. your stupid. how do you know her body is flawless? have you seen it? wait…dont attempt to answer that…..you thought her hair was real, sorry I forgot how stupid you are.

  • Seriously

    so ugly.

  • lol

    only reason why xtina isnt losing weight is becuase she blabbed to much about how “proud” she is to be “thick”….shes too embarrassed to to go back on her word. unless im wrong, then that only means shes too lazy to excercise. she doesnt look healthy. you kow what 5lbs of fat looks like? its disgusting. imagine that on your dinner plate, xtina has about 80lbs + to lose, its excess fat she shouldnt have, its unhealthy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ozt-V0PPJaw
    and those that say it isnt, are fat and unhealthy themselves, its not good. just excercise and eat right. you can have a peice of chocolate, pizza, chips, hamburger, anything you want, just dont eat the whole bag of chips, whole box of pizza, entire chocolate box, a hmaburger with fries and large soda, its not right!! just have good portions, and have daily excercise, 15 mins doing cardio is enough to maintain, and lose weight! cut out all soda, drik diet, youll have the taste, and once you lose weight, you wont even miss soda with sugar anymore, youll feel proud of yourself. i just hate seeign people encourage such unhealthy ways. its NOT healthy, its not about being skinny, its about being HEALTHY.

  • http://samy.com sami

    aahahhahahhahahhahahhahahahhaha funny look

  • sue

    Why is her face so puffy here? Is she on some medication or something?One day her face looks normal, the next day she looks so swolen.

  • helen

    she looks like she is at her worst here, hate the hair, and the legs and her weight

  • http://samy.com sami

    ewwww body and face disgustind

  • Yohji

    I never really got the problem with her weight. She looks different than Christina Hendricks.

    But she always looks so bad regardless. The hair, the tan and the style. Not even the biggest fan could deny this.

  • Anonymousse

    THIS is exactly why Britney’s more succesful

  • Alaia

    Jeez, the very definition of tragic. Now she can add botched botox to the endless list of things that make her the tragic chick she is today!

  • somali girl

    This music awards suck now. Seriously? its garbage.

  • KissThis

    She looks cheap.

  • Audrey

    HOT!HOT!HOT!

  • somali girl

    Lol poor lardtina she heard a little tan makes you’re legs look slimmer. Looks like she called the nearest farm and booked herself to roll in with the pigs.

  • Hulkney

    Bitch looks gorgeous!!!!!!!! Love her! I wish I could age as good as she does!

  • Jade

    Xtina looks amazing!!! Love everything! Congrats to the nominee’s.

  • Klaklou

    Wow I was expecting way more comments criticizing her appearance than this ! I am honeslty surprised by the number of “OMG so hot/amazing” comments !! I mean, come on people, I am all for women being curvy and well fed but this does not look good or hot or sexy. Her face is bloated to a maximum, her dress about to explode. With such a body, she needs to evolve in style.
    As for the hair and the legs, I won’t even…

  • Toni

    That list of nominees looks horrible. I will nt be watching that award show again this year.

  • emy

    She looks like she smells of self-tanner, peroxide, pancake makeup and gin. Please don’t get me started on her overly zealous fake baked legs.

  • Dooley

    XLTina could be the Tanning Mom Long Lost Daughter.

  • Stacy

    ugh I love love love her to death but she needs a new stylist
    her dress is terrible, the color, the shape doesn’t flatter her body
    her make up is great here thou, simple not too much still shows her natural beauty :)
    but omg her legs what?
    n to Anastacia
    Britney was going through so much during her weight gain, she shaved her head, and several melt downs. do you remember her pictures during than, the mtv performance,etc
    that was nothing compared to Xtina. Christina was never a fashion fav, but I love her for her confidence how she kept her head high and always let her voice speak for everything
    anyways both ladies and wonderful and admirable,they survived through so much, why hate on either?

  • the_boyfriend

    Gross.

  • http://@dirrtymangdl Arturo

    Wowwww, She looks absolutely BEAUTIFUL and SEXY, she really looks like a HOT Latina!!! I can`t wait to see her performing at AMAs, I love her curves!!!

  • gn

    she LOOKS GORGEOUSSSSSSSSS

  • mar

    I think her weight looks good on her.

  • Toni

    @Klaklou: I agree. I am a Christina fan ( defended her many times and wrote to Perez when he was on his Christina hate spree back in 09 or 10) , but she does not look good at all. She looks tacky and she looks like she just reeks. She also does not know how to dress for her size and will wear some of the most ill fitting clothes on her. Her hair is also horrible.
    I like her best when she doesn’t try so hard (fashion wise and musically).

  • ugh

    Tone down the hair, take extensions out. Less makeup, and try a earthy color wardrobe, she looked very nice back when she was younger. Not her size, she was a little big then too, when she had black hair. She just dressed nicely. her performance in the forest green suit, was amazing.

  • :)

    I think that it’s so sad that the majority of people see a body like Christina’s as “fat” or “ugly” or unhealthy. And they use those words as insults but then people use the words “stick” and “twig” as compliments and people actually want to hear those words and they TAKE them as compliments. No. Society is a mess and I think that Christina has a beautiful body, and I’d love to have her body. I think that she’s a great role model for people with body image issues, especially because of her attitude about it.
