Christina Aguilera: I'm Fat, Deal With It!

by at .  Updated at .

Christina Aguilera has been getting a lot of attention for her booty-ful figure these days, and she's the farthest thing from apologetic about any weight gain.

In fact, the "Your Body" singer proudly calls herself a "fat girl."

"During the promotion of my album Stripped [in 2002], I got tired of being a skinny, white girl," Aguilera, one of The Voice's fab four, tells Billboard in a new interview.

"I am Ecuadorian but people felt safe passing me off as a skinny, blue-eyed white girl."

"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."

"Basically, they told me I would affect a lot of people if I gained weight - the production, musical directors - that I would sell no records or tickets for my shows."

"I was young, so I lost the weight quickly and was toothpick thin during Back to Basics."

But now, she says she's done with all that:

"I told them during Lotus [her new album], 'You are working with a fat girl. Know it and get over it.' They need a reminder sometimes that I don't belong to them. It's my body."

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

With a smash hit in The Voice, a steady boyfriend in Matt Rutler and her new album and single proving she's still got it as a solo artist, whatever her weight, we say go Xtina!

UPDATE: The comments about her weight are completely false, her rep says.

“The are fake,” Christina‘s rep said about the quotes that have been attributed to the cover story in Billboard, but in reality just originated online somewhere.

Funny, because they're more in less in line with previous ones she's made. Oh well.

Christina Aguilera Quotes

It's kind of hilarious! I've never fit into an E-cup before. I look at my husband and go, 'Guess what size this bra is?' And when I tell him, he's just amazed. We keep the tags that prove it, to look back for memory's sake!

Oh, my God, candy! I had a huge craving for candy toward the end of the pregnancy, from Starbursts to Skittles. I actually took a picture of myself with my big belly in a little lingerie top, surrounded by bowls of the candy I like
