Christina Aguilera: I'm a Fat Girl, Get Over It!

Christina Aguilera has been getting a lot of attention for her curvier figure these days -- but after years of being told to lose weight, she's comfortable with her new look.

"During the promotion of my album Stripped [in 2002, left], I got tired of being a skinny, white girl," Aguilera tells Billboard. "I am Ecuadorian but people felt so safe passing me off as a skinny, blue-eyed white girl."

"I had gained about 15 pounds during promotion and during my Stripped tour [with Justin Timberlake]. "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."

She says the record company said "people I toured with would also miss out if I gained weight because I would sell no records or tickets for my shows." She adds. "I was young, so I lost the weight quickly and was toothpick thin during Back to Basics promos and touring."

But now, she's done with catering to a standard set by executives.

"I told them during this Lotus recording [her new album], '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," she says.

"My body can't put anyone in jeopardy of not making money anymore -- my body is just not on the table that way anymore."

Aguilera appears to be in a good place right now. And good for her sticking up for herself!
