Daily Fail: ‘Unapologetic’ Awards Show Outfits Aren’t An Excuse For Christina Aguilera Weight Jabs

christina aguilera weightChristina Aguilera wore two outfits that revealed her body shape at the American Music Awards last night. But what does it all mean? A chance to go on a Christina Aguilera weight snark at The Daily Mail, of course! Their interpretation of her “unapologetic” wardrobe is that it was an act of “defiance to the skinny”–because obviously, Christina Aguilera should be apologizing for her weight and wearing muumuus while she whittles herself back down to teen Christina Aguilera weight.

Her outfits have been earning her the title of “Worst Dressed” since last night’s show, but The Daily Mail took the occasion to squeeze in some nasty Christina Aguilera weight jabs. Their headline alone is surprisingly offensive: “Christina Aguilera is unapologetic about her curvy figure as she spills out of two costume changes at the AMAs,” but as always with the DM, there’s more: “It’s fair to say Christina Aguilera burst onto the AMA’s on Sunday evening – showing an unapologetic air of defiance to the skinny as she embraced her fuller figure,” the article begins.

The rest of the article basically just uses “fashion commentary” as an excuse to call Christina Aguilera fat. They spend far more time talking about her body, tan, and new blonde bob than her actual clothing, of course–but that’s not that new or surprising. It’s the shaming tone and implications of their comments that really take the cake.

It might be true that Christina Aguilera’s “worst dressed” outfits showed off her curvy figure, but it isn’t true that women should apologize for their bodies if they don’t meet media standards. And revealing your body (whatever it looks like) isn’t an act of defiance against other body types: It’s just called being comfortable with yourself. And kudos to Christina Aguilera for maintaining her self-esteem despite nasty headlines like The Daily Mail‘s.

UPDATE: The Daily Mail still takes the cake for worst offender, but check out some of the media’s other weird Christina Aguilera weight euphemisms invented after her performance at the AMAs.

      She looks like a woman to me! Not a teenager or little boy with no curves. I think she looks amazing.

      I’m so sick of people calling this woman fat! She might not be teeny tiny but she is BY NO MEANS fat. You want to see fat, go google “woman eating mayo on bus”. That is fat. Christina Aguilera is an adult woman with hips and breasts. She’s not 18 and tiny anymore. She has had a child, and I’m sure years of dieting to meet standards severely slowed her metabolism. Not to mention the fact that aging just changes your body! She’s not fat! I wish I could scream it to the rooftops because this crap in the press (not BlissTree, Daily Mail) is what makes women feel like utter shit about themselves. I used to look like teenage Christina, and now I look more like adult Christina, although she’s a little bigger. I’m having SUCH a hard time coming to terms with my more womanly body precisely because all I ever see is the media bashing women who look like women. I love this website because you guys call it out. Thank you!

      I think she looks fuckin’ sexy. The dress fits her body EXTREMELY well, & I think it looks sexy but not provacative. Skinny or not skinny, she’s still an extremely beautiful & amazingly talented woman. But I think her having a more thicker, curvier figure makes her even sexier. Hell, if I was straight & rich in Hollywood, I’d try to get with her….;-)
