christina aguilera weight loss the voice Christina Aguilera debuts weight loss showing significantly slimmer figure

Christina Aguilera has had her share of weight loss ups and downs over the years, and it looks like she’s on a down again. After slimming down an estimated 20 pounds back in June for the Season 4 finale of “The Voice,” Aguilera showed that she’s continued to drop the pounds at a TCA presentation of the NBC reality show.

The above pictures show side-by-side comparisons of Aguilera at the July 27 TCA “The Voice” presentation and of the pop star at a March 20 “The Voice” premiere screening. The change is pretty dramatic, but Aguilera is no stranger to having her weight fluctuate.

Back in the fall, Aguilera got a lot of heat for debuting a thicker figure. It got to the point that her fellow “The Voice” coach Adam Levine had to stick up for her and admit the criticism “pisses me off. Of course I have her back, of course I defend her.”

During the TCA press day, Aguilera hinted that the key to her new body is having some time to herself. “I’m the type of person that I cannot live in front of a camera 24 hours a day,” she says. “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.”
