Used to be that once a Top 40 diva outgrew bubblegum pop, she went on to make adult-appropriate albums and adopt more age-appropriate, sophisticated styles. But all you have to do is look at moms-in-fishnets Britney Spears, Madonna, J. Lo, and Christina Aguilera to see that snorefest formula is no more! Now, divas can feel free to go pantless right on up through their 40s and 50s! Apparently, someone in charge seems to think these ladies just can't sell records anymore without doing their best impression of a half-naked hooker.
For example, take Christina Aguilera's latest get-up in the forthcoming music video for her new single, "Your Body." I guess desperate times call for desperate ... mesh?
Photos from the set show The Voice judge hittin' the street in a skin-tight mini-dress complete with huge mesh cutouts that reveal side boob and lots of rear end. Add pink ombre wig and ginormous Nicki Minaj-esque pink suede heels, and it's clear the designer's inspiration had to have been something like, "Vivian at the beginning of Pretty Woman plus fetish porn star." Hot!
Or not. I love that she appears to be embracing her curvier figure, but she could flaunt it in a much classier way.
Oh well. Being that Aguilera appears to be wielding a bat in the pics, I'm sure this crazy outfit ties in to some kind of greater storyline ... Maybe in which she's a stripper-turned-convenience store robber?! Or stripper-turned-jaded ex-girlfriend seeking revenge (or hot make-up sex?!). I know! Christina Aguilera-turned-Britney Spears in "Womanizer"! Not sure. But hopefully there's a rhyme or reason to the madness. Because out of context, this look on the 31-year-old mama is completely cringe-worthy.

Do you think Christina Aguilera should keep rockin' these skin-tight stripper-tastic get-ups?
