Christina Aguilera: 'I Embrace My Body' Through Aging and Motherhood

People Magazine on Christina Aguilera, Published Oct. 16, 2012

She’s taken her knocks, but Christina Aguilera remains defiant on the subject of her body – saying she loves everything about herself as a mother in her 30s. 

“Some people are afraid of change and [feel] that getting older is a bad thing, but I really love maturing and gaining wisdom,” the 31-year-old pop star, Voice coach and mother of son Max, 4, tells PEOPLE. “And the experience of being pregnant and having a child and seeing what a woman’s body can do is amazing.” 

If you’re going to be a hater, so be it – it won’t faze her. 

“I’ve always been one to make it very clear, love me or hate me, take it or leave it, this is who I am,” she says. “I embrace my body, and I embrace everything about myself. Coming full circle is a celebration of freedom and happiness because that’s what [my new album] Lotus is representing. I’m embracing everything that I’ve grown to be and learned to be.”
