Christina Aguilera definitely knows how to make her haters eat their words. The returning Voice coach turned heads at an NBC press event in Beverly Hills on Saturday, July 27, when she rocked the carpet in a tight pink minidress that revealed some major weight loss and a new, fit figure.
The 32-year-old singer looked tan and rested in a clingy pink frock as she struck poses on the red carpet, her long blonde hair down in loose waves. A source tells Us that Aguilera has managed her slim-down with a combination of healthy eating and working out.
“It’s more of a mind-body thing for her,” a source previously told Us of Aguilera’s commitment to shedding the pounds. “She believes in exercise that she enjoys, doing strength work as opposed to intense cardio.”
The singer has been showing off a slimmer figure in recent weeks, and made headlines when she debuted an estimated 20-pound weight loss on The Voice season four finale on June 18, when she performed opposite Pitbull for her No.1 hit “Feel This Moment.”
“I’m the type of person that I cannot live in front of a camera 24 hours a day,” the “Your Body” singer told reporters on Saturday. “I have to take breaks and stay connected with myself, and I think it’s important so that you can then be your best on-camera and find your own happiness with it.”
Last fall, Aguilera faced major scrutiny over her fluctuating weight, leading co-coach Adam Levine to speak up in her defense during a Q&A in New York City on Oct. 26.
“The one thing about culture right now, celebrity culture particularly, is people feel like they can just say nasty things about other people, whether it’s Christina or whether it’s me,” he said at the time. “She gets a lot and it pisses me off. Of course I have her back and of course I defend her.”
“It’s not cool. I’ve never liked it,” he said of celebrity bullying. “I think it’s horrible and I’ll totally defend her when people say things like that because it’s no one’s business.”
