It’s been a big month for Christina Aguilera fans who have grown impatient over the years. The singer-songwriter announced details of her new album “Liberation,” which is her first in six years, while sharing a sultry video of the single “Accelerate.” Produced by Kanye West and featuring Ty Dolla $ign and 2 Chainz, fans are excited about its R&B edge. She later shared another track titled “Twice,” which rings more like a reflective ballad.
In support of the album, set to be released on June 15, Xtina will embark on her first North American tour in 10 years. To announce the news, she posted a beautiful barefaced photo on Instagram, writing: “The Liberation Tour Tickets on sale May 18.” And while this isn’t the first time we’ve seen the superstar’s freckles on display — she graced the cover of Paper’s Spring 2018 Transformation issue wearing nearly no makeup — we’ve become so used to seeing her in full-on glam that she is almost unrecognizable.
Known for her platinum blond hair, defined eyes, contoured cheeks, and bold red lip, the 37-year-old is embracing her natural beauty and looks amazing in the process. Her complexion is clear, radiant, and line-free – clearly, she ages in reverse. Her blunt haircut with brow-grazing bangs blows in the wind.
Still, don’t expect her to ditch the makeup palettes or curlers anytime soon. "I've always been someone that obviously loves to experiment, loves theatrics, loves to create a storyline and play a character in a video or through stage," she told Paper. "I mean, I'm a girl that likes a beat face, let's not get it twisted."
We can't wait to see what look Xtina slays next.
