Christina Aguilera spent a long time talking about being proud of her curves when she was rocking a fuller figure earlier this year, and for good reason.

Now that she's slimmed down, however, she's equally proud.

Christina Aguilera Loses Weight

Life & Style claims The Voice coach lost 49 (!?) pounds.

Dubious as that seems, she's clearly winning her long struggle with weight and the intense criticism that comes with it, thanks to - gasp - diet and exercise.

It's amazing what the stars come up with, isn't it?

Christina, while gorgeous, making the cover is a bit surprising in what was clearly a busy week for this particular tabloid. Among the other big stories:

After a typically strong premiere Monday, night two of The Voice proved almost, if not just as entertaining as the first as Season 5 looks terrific so far.

On the premiere, the show-stopper was Michael Schuler. On night two, it was Tessanne Chin, a woman who Adam boldly said should win The Voice.

Yes, on night one.

Tessanne, 28, had the judges going all-in from the get go.

The final performer of the evening, singing “Try” by Pink, had all four chairs turned around and facing her before she even made it to the song’s chorus.

Adam proclaimed, “You could easily win The Voice this season.” Whether that was just a sales pitch to snag her or not, we can't say, but it worked.

Will she live up to the hype in the coming weeks? Time will tell, but the Jamaican native certainly made a name for herself on the stage Tuesday night.

Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton kicked off The Voice Season 5 premiere with a rendition of "I Love Rock & Roll" last night.

The quartet, reunited after Xtina and Cee Lo took last season off, showed no signs of rust in belting out the rock anthem by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts.

It was pretty fun. Check it out if you missed it ...

While Usher and Shakira were strong fill-ins, and will be missed in their own right, it was great to see Christina and Cee Lo back and raring to go.

Among the highlights of the fifth-season opener:

The Voice is back for a fifth season on NBC! The format remains the same, and after a one-season hiatus, Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo are back.

Was that a good thing on night one? Did you prefer Usher and Shakira or are you happy the original duo is back with Blake Shelton and Adam Levine?

More importantly, did the blind auditions live up to their billing?

Unlike ABC's Dancing With the Stars results show, there was no format change here. Just the tried and true magic that has made The Voice so great.

After the coaches came together to start the new season, they got down to business, bantering and competing for the talented singers who gave it their all.

Most notably ...

Matthew Schuler got all four coaches to turn around in like the first 15 milliseconds of his rendition of “Cough Syrup” and earned a spot on Team Christina.

Christina Aguilera stopped by The Tonight Show With Jay Leno last night to discuss her return to NBC's The Voice Season 5, kicking off next week.

Her own voice, while top-tier, was playing second fiddle Wednesday, though, thanks to a Bec & Bridge black dress she wore to the set. Just. Wow.

During her interview with Jay, the slimmed-down, five-time Grammy winner was asked to explain one of her quotes from the latest issue of Maxim.

In the magazine, Aguilera revealed that "the one place I don't need to be in control is in the bedroom." Gulp. Asked to elaborate, Christina explained:

"I'm a big micromanager. I'm a stickler about organization."

Clad in a pink dress, Christina Aguilera showed off her dramatic weight loss in the span of one year at an NBC press event this weekend in Beverly Hills.

The 32-year-old singer, who is poised to return for The Voice Season 5, will look nothing like the woman we last saw in the swiveling coach's chair.

Flashing a confident smile on the red carpet, she strutted her stuff with minimal makeup and blond tresses styled in loose waves. Simply gorgeous.

Sources close to Aguilera say she's taking a healthy approach to her makeover, which is the most critical thing, because we loved her curvy too.

She also looked fantastic with her newly-slimmed down figure, shocking fans and critics alike - in a good way. Xtina was definitely feeling this particular moment.
