Pop superstar Christina Aguilera is celebrating her birthday in her actual birthday suit.
The Grammy award-winning artist posted a series of topless photos to mark the special occasion. Aguilera turned 41 years old on December 18.
With a black curtain used as the background, a bleached-blonde Aguilera – in full makeup –seductively posed for the camera from the waist up wearing only a pair of long leather gloves. She used her gloved arms and hands to cover herself from full exposure.
In a few of the photos, Aguilera also sported a pair of oversized, black sunglasses. She tagged everyone who worked with her on the photoshoot, including makeup and hairstylist Etienne Ortega, hairstylist Jesus Guerrero, and stylist Dani Levi. She added the words “XTINA XLI” to the post. “XLI” is 41 in Roman numerals.
Argentine singer Nathy Peluso, who collaborated with Aguilera on the track “Pa’ Mis Muchachas,” took time to wish her fellow Latina musician on her special day. “Feliz cumple mamasita,” Peluso wrote.
Musician Kathleen Hanna of The Julie Ruin also shared some heartfelt thoughts about what Aguilera has meant to her over the years.
“Happy Birthday Beautiful!,” Hanna tweeted. “Thank you for all the songs and for all your amazing live performances. Deep diving you singing live on youtube is how I get thru the bad times and celebrate the good ones!”
Plenty of fans also took to social media to let Aguilera know how they’ve impacted their lives.
Earlier this month, Aguilera accepted the Music Icon Award at the People’s Choice Awards. In November, she revealed that her upcoming Spanish-language album would be released “in three different chapters” throughout 2022.
