OK, Christina - so you deny, evade, elude - even when the obvious was, well, obvious - refusing to answer questions about your burgeoning belly.
Then what do you do?
Well, the logical step, of course.
Yes, that's right. Following in the child heavy footsteps of Demi Moore and Britney Spears, Ms. Aguilera has decided that the proper way to acknowledge her pregnancy to the world is to appear nude on the cover, and in the pages, of Marie Claire magazine.
I feel so foolish. All I did was send birth announcements.
Can someone please explain to me the ego involved in this? I mean, seriously, it has to be gargantuan.
I'm not a prude by any means. You people know that. I just cannot understand the thinking behind thinking that the world has some burning desire to see you pregged out and naked.
Don't get me wrong. I think a pregnant woman is beautiful, natural, all that other PC BS, but I honestly couldn't care less about seeing a celebrity in all her airbrushed distended glory.
Yes, I thought Demi rocked - the first time she did it (the second time she appeared on Vanity Fair in a painted on suit - no child within).
And when Britney came along? Well, that was just plain wannabe-poseur-please-look-at-me-copycatting.
And now Christina? Like I said, it's a tad hypocritical to go from complete radio silence to all butt the full Monty.
Do it for your spouse. Get a pic taken for personal posterity. Hell, have your stomach molded and turned into a sculpture for Junior to roll his/her eyes at when they are old enough to understand.
But enough already. Christina, I'm happy for you and your hubby. I'm happy for anyone who is starting off down the life altering path of parenthood. It's a wonderful ride.
But to you, and all the female celebs who will procreate in the future? Keep it in your maternity pants, will ya?
(Now, if the Dads-to-be want to take their skivvies off, that's a whole other topic ... and magazine. Like I said...I'm no prude.)
