"Entering this business, I hated being super skinny. Once I turned 21, I started filling out a little bit, and I was loving my new curves. I appreciated having a booty," Aguilera revealed.

The former child star confessed that looking at early photos of herself was tough because of the insecurities she experienced. "I would never want to relive my 20s โ€” you're so in your own head and finding your confidence," she said.

However, she also discovered the importance of self-love. "As you age, you stop comparing yourself to other people and start appreciating your own body and owning it," she shared.

Aguilera's confidence in her body had grown, as she revealed in a 2012 interview. Despite facing criticism for her fluctuating weight, she remained focused on loving her body and embracing her unique physique.

"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," she said.

Although it took time for her to embrace it, Aguilera is now at peace with her figure. "I don't weigh myself โ€” it's all about how I feel in my clothes. What looks good on one person might not look good on another body type. I happen to be very confident in my own skin," she explained.

In 2022, Aguilera released a new version of his iconic song "Beautiful," highlighting its relevance to today's social media-driven body image issues. The music video highlighted the link between social media use, body image problems, self-harm, and disordered eating among children and teens, emphasizing the urgent need for change.

While championing self-acceptance and body positivity, Christina Aguilera has also been refreshingly open about her views on cosmetic enhancements, particularly injectable treatments. Describing herself as "pretty preserved," Aguilera acknowledges the benefits these treatments offer in maintaining a natural appearance.

She also stressed the significance of personal choice and honesty about one's decisions within their comfort zone, urging others to refrain from judgment. Given her dynamic lifestyle, she prioritizes the safety of any substances introduced into her body.

Despite differing opinions, Aguilera stays true to her journey of self-acceptance, promoting body positivity and personal empowerment. Her transparency regarding cosmetic enhancements highlights her dedication to authenticity and self-expression, making a strong impact in the entertainment world.
