Christina Aguilera says that she hated being super skinny during the peak of her career. The chart topper, who has since learned how to embrace her curves, opened up about her body image and how she learned how to love herself just the way she is in a new interview. Here’s what you need to know.
“I think we all have our good days and our bad days in how we feel about ourselves. Entering this business, I hated being super skinny,” Christina Aguilera, 40, told Health Magazine.
Christina said that it wasn’t until 2002 that she began to embrace her body during the same time she filmed her music video for Stripped. “Once I turned 21, I started filling out a little bit, and I was loving my new curves,” she recalled. “I appreciated having a booty.”

With that said, Christina added that she doesn’t like to share throwback photos of herself from the earlier years of her career, just because it brings back some very emotional, and if not also painful memories, from her past.
“I have a hard time looking at the early pictures of myself because I remember feeling so insecure,” she confessed. “I would never want to relive my 20s — you’re so in your own head and finding your confidence.”
Thankfully, Christina has since found her groove – and there is no way she’s losing it.
“With age, you figure out that life is too short to waste time thinking about what other people think about you,” she said. “I’ve realized I am making memories for myself and that I shouldn’t worry about what other people think.”
