Christina Aguilera On Her Weight: 'My Boyfriend Loves My Body': [ send to a friend ]
"You got to be a strong, powerful, very confident woman," Aguilera explained at the Television Critics Association event for 'The Voice'.
"As women, we are definitely under a microscope and under massive scrutiny," said the 31-year-old. "As long as I am happy in my own skin, that is all that is all the confirmation I need."
"As long as I'm happy in my own skin, that's all I need. I'm happy with where I'm at. I have a boyfriend that loves my body. I love my body. My son is healthy and happy. That's all that matters."
"I've been on all spectrums. I've been in this for a long time. I came out on the scene when I was 17 years old. You can never be too much of anything."
"You can never be too perfect, too thin, too curvy, voluptuous, this, that. I've been on all sides of the spectrum as far as any female in this business."
"I think my video works over the years have spoken to that. As you know, 'Dirty', 'Lady Marmalade,' and so on. I've been no stranger to being very comfortable in my own skin to take those risks, to take those chances."
'The Voice''s second season will premiere on NBC after the Super Bowl on February 5.
