Christina Aguilera Makes Solid Case For Weight Gain In Imaginary Comments

Comments thought to be made by Christina Aguilera to Billboard magazine about her weight gain in 2002 during her Stripped tour with Justin Timberlake turned out to be false, according to her rep.

Disappointing because I legitimately thought for a second that she’d made some really great points and illustrated a non-hypocritical message. The quotes, which may have originated on Tumblr, referred to a frantic meeting her label had to discuss her new look.

“During the promotion of my album Stripped, 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,” she said in the excellently crafted fake interview.

“The next time my label saw me, I was heavier, darker and full of piercings! Let me tell you, that wasn’t an easy pill for them to swallow. I had gained about 15 pounds during promotion.” 

“They called this serious emergency meeting about how there was a lot of backlash about my weight. Basically, they told me I would affect 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.”
Where’s the fake interview with Britney about her label’s meeting over the marbles she lost in 2004? I want to read that one too.
