After seeing Christina at the 2012 AMA's, I realized something. She must have a stylist who doesn't know when to tell her "No."
Christina is one of my favorite singers. "Beautiful" helped me come out in high school with little to no brouhaha amongst my peers, and Bionic is one of my favorite albums- I wish that people would accept that sometimes musicians change their sound. "You Lost Me" is a fantastic ballad, and "Bionic" is a well polished electronic introduction to the new Christina she wanted to introduce.
That idea of change... leads me to her clothing. Like I said, new Christina. A suggestion I have right off the bat is that its time she consulted Tadashi Shoji, master of dressing all figures. Other designers seem to not really care about famous girls who arent shaped like Rooney Mara. Our bodies all change when we're older, and whoever is choosing her clothing for her must have a screenshot of her "Genie in a Bottle" video.
Christina is just. so. pretty. It would be SO inspiring to people who were skinnier in their younger days (read: everyone on earth) if she (or her me, as her stylist) would accept the new her and know that she cannot wear the same things that she wore when her Candyman single was out. Which is fine! I want to be her gay, and dress her, and gossip.
It just makes me so mad when gorgeous, talented, successful people, with access to all the finest things on earth, try to shove themselves into a myopic ideal of what Hollywood thinks is beautiful.
Christina, e-mail me, seriously. I have your best interests at heart, and you need someone to give you some real talk. And this gay man of color from Our Nation's Capital is just the kind of person to do it. :) I ❤ ya lots, girl.
PS: My name is real- it's wonderful, right? Who doesn't want to say their stylist's name is Joseph Lamour?
