I made a top ten list of all the things I miss
Your lying eyes and lips, they didn't make it
And when I'm cold at night, I know that I'll survive
Until I feel alright, I'm gonna fake it Breathe in. Breathe out.
Looking at the pics posted in this thread, and comparing X to other pop stars that came out around the same time as her cements the fact that our bodies are God's, and our temple, and we should love, and take care of them like her instead of ruing ourselves like those other pop stars.
Though many credit her joining The Voice for reigniting her career, Christina Aguilera attributes her divorce as a "rebirth." With her film debut in Burlesque and 2010's Bionic receiving mediocre reviews, it seemed like Aguilera's seventh studio album would determine her future. Lotus is a dazzling comeback. Where Bionic came off as too conceptually tired, these songs sound organic in contrast, starting on the earthy "Lotus Intro" with Aguilera's soliloquy likening her inner strength to that of the resilient flower. The following "Army Of Me" is a modern disco laced anthem of empowerment. As she sings, "Now I've found my second wind/Now I've found my second skin", she sounds honestly comfortable in that skin. And why shouldn't she? Lotus was recorded in the comfort of her home studio where her friend Cee Lo Green dropped by to pipe-in on the grandiose "Make The World Move" before she and Blake Shelton duet with vocal pyrotechnics in "Just A Fool".
