Christina Aguilera Steps Away From The Red Lipstick For A Mini-Makeunder

Christina Aguilera has been rocking the same platinum curls and scarlett mouth for as long as we can remember. Unfortunately, we can’t remember a day past the release of Burlesque in theaters. Frankly, we’ve been hoping for a little change. Not that Xtina can’t pull off the neo-Mae West look; it’s just that it’s a lot of look. And with a lot of look, a lot can go wrong. Which it did. Pretty frequently. Stepping out last night at L.A.’s Little Door restaurant, however, Aguilera looked refreshingly natural with a blow-out and a pale lip. Rarely would someone looking more like Amanda Bynes qualify as a makeunder, but here we are, ladies and gentlemen. Here we are.

Even Christina’s look on The Voice last night was toned down, what with the straight hair and nude lip. Then, once Xtina left her on-camera gig, she….she…she obviously took off some of her make-up! We could not be more psyched, you guys! We knew there had to be a happy medium between “Dirrty”-style leather chaps and real-life Betty Boop! So what do you think? Do you like the scaled-back Xtina, or do you miss her blond curls and bright lips already? What should Aguilera do if she really wants to look killer?

Christina Aguilera Is So In Love, She Forgot How Cameras Work

Christina Aguilera looked head over heels in love with boyfriend Matthew Rutler at the The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim launch party at the Belasco Theater in L.A. last night. However, while must of us go through the snuggly bunny phase of our relationship in the safety of our own homes, Xtina seems oblivious to the flashing lights of paparazzi as she and Rutler got their kissy face on in the middle of the red carpet. Unless…unless Aguilera walked the red carpet specifically just to show off her love? Now that we think about it, a video game premiere does seem like a pretty random event for Xtina to attend. Oh, we’re on to you, Aguilera!

Christina Aguilera Gets ‘Em Out For The Gay Walk Of Fame

You’d think they asked for her cleavage-print. Christina Aguilera was out at the Abbey in West Hollywood last night to become the first celebrity on the club’s Gay Walk Of Fame. “We applaud her for speaking out in favor of equality and working to support the community,” said Stevie St. John of the LA Gay & Lesbian Center. Christina certainly looked the part of an iconic diva outside the club, busting out of her lace top and posing in a sheer bathrobe and heels. Boyfriend Matthew Rutler was also on hand, rocking an untied bowtie and fedora—le jazz hot! Get a closer look at the pair in the gallery below.

Matthew Rutler’s DUI Charge Dropped

Here’s some new gristle for the “Christina Aguilera: rough patch or meltdown?” debate. The DUI charge against Matthew Rutler was dropped after his blood alcohol level was revealed to be under the legal limit. Christina and her Burlesque PA boyfriend were arrested for public intoxication early March 1st after he was pulled over for driving erratically. Looks like Rutler’s dad was right—Matthew wasn’t that drunk.

With Aguilera’s divorce finalized and her singing competition show The Voice to premiere next week, she may well be past the post-Bratman “hiccups” that included screwing up at the Super Bowl and being a drunken mess at Jeremy Renner‘s birthday party. But with Rutler clearly loving the cameras—he even smiled in his mugshot!—fans can still debate whether this set assistant/homewrecker is a good influence on the singer. W just hope he doesn’t want to rap.

Christina Aguilera’s Divorce Finalized Today

Any shred of hope the world had for Christina Aguilera‘s five-year-old marriage to Jordan Bratman is gone: The pair finalized their divorce in court this morning. Aguilera filed for divorce back in October and, after a required six-month waiting period (which, for so many reasons, must have seemed like the roughest six months of her life), a judge finalized the request today.

As you already know, Aguilera didn’t need an official divorce to start shacking up with her new beau, Matthew Rutler, he moved in to her California home before Bratman had even gotten a chance to move out. Aguilera and Bratman plan to share custody of their 3-year-old, Max.

Raunchy Photos Of Christina Aguilera Found In A Hotel Room Are For Sale

Christina Aguilera‘s life this year is like the Paula Abdul song “Opposites Attract.” She might take two steps forward, but then somewhere along the line, she takes two steps back. Here we thought that with her new job as a judge on The Voice she was moving forward, but it was just revealed that some raunchy photos that were taken of Aguilera are being shopped around after someone found them on a memory card in a French hotel room. Two steps back for not double-checking your room before departing, Xtina.

The card contains “hundreds of highly intimate photographs” of Aguilera, reports Radar Online. Some were taken at pal Nicole Richie‘s bachelorette party last September, some taken with boyfriend Matthew Rutler, and others are shots of Aguilera’s son Max. The man who reportedly found the card containing the photos is now trying to sell them, as any classy person would, but gave Radar a taste of what they photos were of. Allegedly, some of the photos show Aguilera dancing on tables, simulating oral sex, and hanging out with two strippers at Richie’s party (sounds pretty normal for a bachelorette party, actually), and in others, Aguilera is in bed with Rutler. No one (yet) has bought the photos, but it’s just one more setback for the pop star, (and the second set of leaked, NSFW photos of her in three months). Don’t make us buy you a fanny pack for your next vacation, girl, you can’t be losing any more pictures like these.

Matthew Rutler’s Dad Bummed His Son Was Caught Drinking And Driving

If your kid got caught drinking and driving, you’d probably be pretty upset they they put their life and the lives of others at risk, right? You’d hope, at least. But David Rutler, father to Matthew Rutler, who was arrested for DUI last week after a night of drinks with Christina Aguilera, is actually just upset that his son got caught.

In an interview with Radar Online, the elder Rutler said “I just feel bad he got into trouble like this, but it could have happened to anyone. He really didn’t have that much to drink, he just got caught. Matt was only like .01 over the legal limit…It’s not like he was that drunk.” That’s not the greatest way to look at things, but really, the entire interview with this man is sort of a mess. He goes on to say that Matthew is a qualified ocean lifeguard who’s good with children and was president of his high school’s senior class, so on paper, this guy has a great college application/online dating profile, at least, with the exception of being arrested.

Christina Aguilera To Judge On The Voice: Can She Handle It?

Well, this is most definitely a coincidence. NBC announced that Christina Aguilera will join Cee-Lo and Adam Levine as the judges for the network’s upcoming singing competition The Voice, not even 48 hours after Christina was arrested for public drunkenness with boyfriend Matthew Rutler, with People publishing juicy anonymous quotes concerning Aguilera’s drinking problem earlier today. “She’s saying she’s this strong independent woman and she’s fine, but what she’s not stepping back to realize is that moving on after a divorce is not easy,” says a friend. “She thinks she’s gotten her life together and has already moved on, when maybe she still needs to process it some more.”

It sounds like the friends would rather she wasn’t “processing” the divorce with set assistant Matthew Rutler, who seems a little too fond of the spotlight, and more importantly, the sauce. “There’s a real concern about this guy, and a lot of her friends feel she needs to get away from himl. Hopefully, what happened [on Tuesday] is a real wake up call. She feels she is embracing her freedom and enjoying life…but now friends are hoping that she takes a step back and focuses on herself for a while.” As always, the anonymous insiders seem hopeful that latest low will also be the last—and that goes double if she’s headed for a weekly gig on prime time TV. With Christina’s divorce from Jordan Bratman now settled (“Jordan has been really wonderful through all this,” says the insider. “He’s been really understanding”), there certainly seems reason to believe—and hope—she’ll be able to handle her new role.

Christina Aguilera Public Intoxication Mugshot Out

Thank you E! for Christina Aguilera‘s mugshot! As you all know, the singer and her boyfriend, Matthew Rutler, were arrested early yesterday morning on charges of  public drunkenness. Rutler also got booked for a DUI. Now apparently, this mugshot wasn’t going to be released to the public because authorities aren’t planning to press charges, but as many things do in Hollywood, it got out anyway. This isn’t helping her case exactly, with all the reports of Christina’s excessive drinking and her meltdowns doing the rounds.

The L.A. Sheriff’s Department’s rep Steve Whitmore had commented that Aguilera was quite cooperative during her arrest and “not belligerent in anyway whatsoever” through the process. For someone who was that hammered, we also have to say, that mugshot isn’t half-bad at all. Her hair looks fine, and make-up isn’t too smudged and she doesn’t seem to have a case of drunk-eye! But it’s like what Pink tweeted, “Out of Myself, Britney, and Christina- didn’t everyone think I was gonna be the troublemaker? LOOK MA!!! No CUFFS!!!” What do you say, guys? Is Christina on a downward spiral? What’s your verdict on her mugshot?

Christina Aguilera And Matthew Rutler Arrested After Night Of Drinking

Yikes! Christina Aguilera and her boyfriend Matthew Rutler were arrested last night. Aguilera was taken in by the LAPD for public drunkenness while Rutler was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. The pair was taken to the West Hollywood Sherriff’s Station at around 2:45am, TMZ reports, and a source says that Aguilera was “extremely intoxicated” and “unable to take care of herself.” This is just one more stumble for Xtina, who’s has a rough year so far after her National Anthem misstep at the Superbowl and reportedly having not-so-discreet sex with Rutler at a family party. It’s been rumored that Aguilera has refused rehab for what appears to be a worsening alcohol problem.

We’ll keep you updated on this story as more details emerge.
