Last week Lady Gaga hit back at the thinly-veiled criticism she received from the media, after putting on weight. This week another pop star tells the body fascist record industry where they can stick it.

Christina Aguilera is currently promoting her fifth studio album, and image-wise, she's been through a lot of changes since her self-titled debut in 1999.

In an interview with the latest issue of Billboard magazine, she tells of how she's finally asserted herself with the record industry money men: "I told them during this Lotus recording, "You are working with a fat girl. Know it now and get over it." They need a reminder sometimes that I don't belong to them. It's my body. My body can't put anyone in jeopardy of not making money anymore-my body is just not on the table that way anymore."
