Christina Aguilera Offered Big Money to Represent Plus Size Dating Site
Raise your hand if you've heard this story before: Popular female celeb either gains a little bit of weight or refuses to lose what she's got already. Celeb gets called out for her weight. Then, celeb gets offered to be the face of a plus size dating site.
Christina Aguilera is the latest celeb who refuses to conform to size 0 standards, and now she's the latest to be offered a spokeswoman gig for TheBigandTheBeautiful.com. The site's founder, 'America's Next Top Model' alum Whitney Thompson (have any truly "top models" actually come from that show? Just asking!) is offering Aguilera a whopping $3 million to be the face of their brand.
TMZ reports that Thompson sent Aguilera's agents a letter asking for her services. TheBigandTheBeautiful.com is "specifically designed for women with curves," and they want XTina to put hers to use. Thompson said in exchange for the cold hard cash, Aguilera would be asked to do one television commercial, one radio commercial, two photo shoots and four public appearances in support of the brand. Additionally, she wants Aguilera to use not just her curves, but her cords -- the vocal cords, that is, to sing a jingle for the website.
Aguilera's weight has been a target of a ton of speculation and criticism, but we think she looks great -- and so does she (and her boyfriend, Matt Rutler, too!). ”I’m very confident in my body," she said earlier this year. "I think my video works over the years have spoken to that … I've been no stranger to being very comfortable in my own skin.” Amen, sister!
