Christina Aguilera Disowns 'Fat Girl' Comments

Christina  Aguilera has disowned the comments that were published by the press earlier  this week, in which she was quoted as saying that her record  companies forced her to keep her weight in check.

The story was first published by the controversial British tabloid The  Sun, according to whom, Xtina told Billboard that the bosses  of her record labels pressurized her into keeping a slim body and fake persona  against her wishes.

The exact words associated with the “Your  Body” crooner were: “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. [In 2002] I had gained about  15 pounds during promotion and during my Stripped tour. They called this serious  emergency meeting about how there was a lot of backlash about my  weight.

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 is just not on the table that way  anymore.”

But now Aguilera’s representatives have informed the press that “the  quotes are fake” and their client made no such comment during her interview  with Billboard last month. The interviewing publication has since  verified her claim.

US Weekly had also published a similar report based on unconfirmed  quotes provided by The Sun, although they have since taken down that  story.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the quotes were originally  sourced from a post on microblogging website Tumblr.com, although it  remains unclear whether or not Aguilera was the actual poster of those  comments.
