Christina Aguilera has a late-in-the-year birthday, and this year in particular was special as she celebrated her 40th. She did so with some wicked nails and a catsuit, but while her birthday may have been a couple of weeks ago, it looks as if she kept the party going into the new year. This time, she didn’t even bother with the catsuit, choosing to celebrate in a nude bubble bath… with some champagne, of course. Now, that’s my kind of celebration.
Following a video Christina Aguilera posted to her Instagram on New Year’s Day in which she noted, ‘I’m not turning 40; I’m arriving at 40,” the popular The Voice mentor decided to take some me time in a bathtub. She did so while wearing a cowboy hat and sipping champagne, as one is wont to do.
Normally New Year’s is spent out with friends, possibly doing something that requires fancy dress. The year 2020 has been a little different all around, and while some of y’all may have dressed up, we also saw a litany of celebrities who seemed to spend the holiday social distancing, including S.W.A.T.’s Shemar Moore, who is currently fighting Covid-19. I’m certainly not begrudging anyone who took some “me” time as part of their 2021 celebrations.
Christina Aguilera’s not the only who’s been spending time in the buff lately, as Dune’s Josh Brolin got nude in nature before the big ball dropped on live TV this past year. In his case, the actor was missing the bubbles and the cowboy hat, though.
Meanwhile, although Christina Aguilera’s post dropped after New Year’s Eve, she certainly at least kicked off the year in a memorable way, also noting on social media that it’s a New Year and she’s bringing a new “energy.” She's said about 40 that she's "embraced" the number as well.
This ever-present social stigma exists around getting older, but I have ALWAYS embraced it! I am forever an old soul and I appreciate the wisdom, grace and beauty that comes with each new year of life. I treasure the growth that comes with age and I welcome the knowledge from the greats that came before me.
After the long year we’ve had, she’s not the only one with resolve as we’ve hit 2021. Candace Cameron Bure also revealed she’s looking forward to “respect[ing] my family time more” than she had previously with her busy career in an interview with Us Magazine. And James Corden joined Weight Watchers, resolving to get healthy in 2021.
We’ll have to wait and see if various celebrities end up sticking with their resolutions over the long haul, though the goals we've seen so far have been admirable. Regardless, Christina Aguilera isn’t the type of person to sit around and wait for things to happen to her. The singer kept busy in 2020 by recording a track for Disney’s Mulan live-action remake and headlining a Las Vegas residency before the pandemic struck. What lies ahead remains to be seen, but we'll keep you posted every step of the way.
