Grammy award winner Christina Aguilera in a toned-down, makeup-free look for the cover of Paper Magazine, can be considered as a change for her much expected next era of music.
In the amazing photographs, we see the 37-year-old, totally barefaced and stripped of any beauty product, displaying her spots and light blue eyes.
Christina talked about how her image has developed throughout the years, the legacy she plans to leave behind for her kids and her new era of music.
On the advice she’ll share with her 3-year-old daughter: I don’t want to inject too much upon her as to how I’m choosing to live my life and what I’ve done in my career, I just hope I can allow what I’m doing to influence her to be her own person. That’s truly what I hope for her. I really want to make sure my children are both very confident in the sense that they know who they are and that they won’t be easily swayed by outside opinion.
On why it is important to her to speak up for the LGBTQ community: These are people who I grew up with and who are brilliant, talented and strong that deserve for their voice to be heard and fought for, as well.
