Christina Aguilera was glam goddess for most of her singing career, but she strips off the makeup for a new photo spread in Paper magazine and goes au natural. The new nude look is not only stunning, but shows off her raw natural beauty. Who knew she has freckles?
It’s unclear whether her new look will mark a new direction with her music, but it could. She explains:
“I’ve always been someone that obviously loves to experiment, loves theatrics, loves to create a storyline and play a character in a video or through stage. I’m a performer, that’s who I am by nature. But I’m at the place, even musically, where it’s a liberating feeling to be able to strip it all back and appreciate who you are and your raw beauty.”
Aguilera was all about glam when she launched a comeback seven years ago. She’d just gone through the break up of her marriage to Jordan Bratman after a four-year lay-off to have a child.
“It’s hard, definitely. It’s hard just even being a working mom and trying to balance and juggle everything on your plate,” she said at the time.
The same year she went through a nude photo scandal.
She was in the spotlight constantly for six seasons as a judge on “The Voice.” She took a leave of absence from the show back in 2013 to work on her music.
Her new look is also a far cry from her days as alter-ego X-Tina. She dyed her hair black, debuted tattoos and piercings and wore next to nothing.
She introduced the persona to promote her 2003 album Stripped. The music “lyrically revolved around the theme of self-esteem while also discussing sex and gender equality,” according to reports.
She’s currently working on a new album, her first since 2012’s Lotus. Whether her new look will go hand-in-hand with her new music remains to be seen.
