Just yesterday, we reported on the Christina Aguilera Billboard Magazine cover and story, wherein the songstress allegedly commented on her weight, calling herself a “fat girl.”
However, it turns out the reported quotes weren’t even Christina’s own words!
Xtina’s representative recently confirmed to Just Jared that Billboard’s quotes of Christina talking about her weight are completely false.
The rep plainly said: “They are fake.”
The original quotes from the magazine showed Christina going into detail about her struggle with weight over the past 10 years of her career.
The magazine wrote:
“I got tired of being a skinny white girl. I am Ecuadorian but people felt so safe passing me off as a skinny, blue-eyed white girl… [In 2002,] I had gained about 15 pounds during promotion and during my Stripped tour. They called this serious emergency meeting about how there was a lot of backlash about my weight. Basically, they told me I would effect [sic] a lot of people if I gained weight — the production, musical directors. I told them during this Lotus recording, ‘You are working with a fat girl. Know it now and get over it. They need a reminder sometimes that I don’t belong to them. It’s my body. My body can’t put anyone in jeopardy of not making money anymore — my body is just not on the table that way anymore.”
While Christina’s weight has been under close watch by the media over the past few years, at least she’s trying to ignore the negative comments.
We’re not sure what Xtina thinks about her body, but apparently it wasn’t what Billboard reported!
