Happy birthday to Christina Aguilera!
The “Dirty” singer celebrated her 40th turn around the sun by showing fans that she’s still as sexy as ever, along with an essay on ageing.
“The ever-present social stigma exists around getting older, but I have ALWAYS embraced it,” Aguilera wrote.
After speaking about the challenges everyone has faced in 2020, she noted that she faces her “life challenges head on.”
“Now as a grown woman who has endured, overcome, created and powered through so much…I am not just turning 30, but ARRIVING at 40,” she continued. “I am at a place in my life where I own who I have been, I embrace the new woman I am today, and I look forward to the new chapter that will shape who I become.”
