Christina Aguilera's embarrassing photo op

Posted on

Christina Aguilera‘s life in the public eye is starting to play out like every possible nightmare scenario of every kid in high school, isn’t it?  She went through a questionable fashion phase, constantly vied for the spotlight against her rival, messed up the national anthem during a big game, fell down in front of everyone, endured a painful split, was picked on for her weight, and then got in, like, so much trouble. And while Aguilera has graduated to full-fledged adult, the nightmare still hasn’t ended there, seeing as life is one endless loop of high school hell. (No one tells you that, kids!)

Over the weekend The Voice mentor sang at the memorial service for the late, great Etta James. But, it wasn’t her rendition of the legend’s classic song “At Last” or even her cleavage-baring funeral wear that’s had people talking. In a widely seen photo that’s so embarrassing you will want to move towns, it appears a liquid is running down the Grammy-winning pop star’s leg. Some are speculating that it’s menstrual blood (a theory that made the coolest guy in school Neil Patrick Harris gag), but an insider assured US Weekly that it was nothing more than a spray tan runoff. (“It was her proudest moment [singing for Etta James.] The sweat caused her spray tan to streak,” the source explained.)

Still, even if the latter is the truth, Aguilera likely won’t get to live this one down anytime soon. Such are the perils of adulthood. Come on, guys, give the poor girl a break. For once.

Do you sorta feel bad for Christina Aguilera after this picture, too, PopWatchers? At this point would The Voice‘s spinning chair have to go haywire and fling her across the stage to make the least embarrassing thing to happen to her this year? Wasn’t high school the freakin’ worst? Share in the comments section below.
