Christina Aguilera opens up about her “rough year” in Marie Claire

Christina Aguilera graces the February cover of Marie Claire, and she looks absolutely amazing! Just goes to show you what the right makeup can do for you. She looks so much pretty without the ton of makeup she’s usually wearing. She looks great! In the article she opens up about her body, her rough year, and her NBC hit ‘The Voice’.

On 2011:

“That was a rough year,” Aguilera admits, shaking her head. “Between my divorce and the other things I went through, a lot happened. It’s hard for anyone to go through that in public. But when you’re a celebrity and under a microscope, it’s 58 million times harder. I grew an even thicker skin after that hard year.” The scrutiny seems to have shown no signs of abating: Lately, she’s been subjected to cruel tabloid headlines about her fluctuating weight. (“I was never that fat,” crowed Kelly Osbourne on E! Fashion Police.) Aguilera’s response, she says, is to ignore the static. “I’ve been through my highs, I’ve been through my lows; I’ve been through the gamut of all things in this business. Being too thin. Being bigger. I’ve been criticized for being on both sides of the scale. It’s noise I block out automatically. I love my body. My boyfriend loooves my body. My son is healthy and happy, so that’s all that matters to me.”

On her body:

“I have certain physical features that I favor over others. We all have our areas,” she says. “When I worked on Burlesque, I lost so much weight that I was too skinny. I don’t weigh myself — it’s all about how I feel in my clothes. What looks good on one person might not look good on another body type. I happen to be very confident in my own skin. It takes time to get to that place, but it’s all about embracing yourself and your body.”

FIRST LOOK! Angelina Jolie’s Marie Claire January 2012 cover!!

Angelina Jolie graces yet another magazine cover, and this time it’s Marie Claire! The stunning beauty is busy promoting her new movie, “In the Land of Blood and Honey.”

Angelina looks beautiful in a blue sweater, staring into the camera with her trademark bee-stung lips and brandishing a gold statement ring.

In the interview, Angie comments on the different styles of her super cute twins, Knox and Vivienne:

Knox is very much a dude. Very physical, tough. He loves dinosaurs and swords. She [Vivienne] is so elegant and delicate. Vivi will pick flowers from the garden and put them in her hair. She likes to get her nails done and collects stuffed animals. It’s very funny for me to have to buy all things pink and watch princess movies!

Amy Adams: “Since having Aviana, I have a muffin top, and that’s okay”

Amy Adams is InStyle’s December girl. Amy is promoting her new movie, ‘The Muppets’. I love Amy Adams. She’s one of my favorite celebrity moms. She’s just so cute and down to earth! She looks like she actually takes care of her kids herself, doesn’t walk to the park with the nanny…but I could be wrong.

Balancing her career, her engagement and motherood: “I have to trust that I can prioritize my family and myself while still finding the energy and focus for my work. And I believe I can. I know I can.”

Losing the pregnancy weight: “I read about these actresses who get on a stationary bike two weeks after giving birth and I’m like, ‘What? Where did you push your baby out of?’ Since having Aviana, I have a muffin top, and that’s okay right now.”

Motherhood: For Adams, motherhood has meant forgoing the makeup, putting off the pampering, and embracing the dried cereal all over her car. Fortunately, she adds, it has all paid off in the long run. “I’m definitely not one of those women who make it look easy. I’m always running late — and look, there’s guacamole on my purse! But I’m more patient than I ever thought I would be, and I’m not so hard on myself anymore.”

She will marry Darren Le Gallo: They have yet to tie the knot, the couple — who divide household duties between themselves; Adams does laundry while he washes bottles — admit the nuptials are likely to be sooner rather than later. “I’ll say to Darren, ‘What do you think of May?’ and he’ll say, ‘May. Ha, ha. You just let me know.’ I just can’t decide!” she laughs, despite her opinion that marriage is not “the only way to sustain a relationship. I am putting more pressure on myself now that we have Avi. I’ll figure it out soon.”

Date nights: “[They include] a lot of food and maybe a glass of wine,” she reveals. “We’re always like, ‘It’s 11:30! Woo-hoo! We’re crazy!’”

Defining herself: “There’s danger in defining your identity. I accept that life is a series of transitions. You think you know who you are, but then something comes along to make you question everything.”

Keeping clothes from her movies: “I do have a pair of gorgeous Christian Louboutins that I wore in Leap Year. They’re stored in their little dust covers in a box in my closet.”
