Christina Aguilera may have been feeling a little “dirrty” because she hopped into the tub for a very public soak. 

The Grammy winner stripped down for an unexpected photo shoot in a bathroom and shared the racy photos with fans on social media Thursday. 

In the series of black and white pictures, the songstress poses in a rectangular tub with wet blond hair and a bare, dimly lit background. In one shot, the star is covered in suds while in another, Aguilera uses her arms to keep things PG-13 rated. For the final image, she’s in a rounder tub surrounded by bath goodies and sporting a dark smokey eye.

The photos popped up out of the blue and, unfortunately, Aguilera didn’t offer much of an explanation in the caption beyond an emoji of a water droplet.

Could the stripped down shots be at all related to the new album she’s been teasing for what feels like forever? Late last month, the songstress assured her devoted fans her next album is “coming b–tches” after one very curious fan left a clever message for her on her Hollywood Walk of Fame star.

“Dear Christina Aguilera,” the fan wrote using pieces of paper strategically placed on the star. “Where the f–k is the new album?”

If new music was not the inspiration for the latest images, maybe she was in a sultry mood given Valentine’s Day on Wednesday. 

Whatever the case, her fans are loving the update. 

As one follower commented, “STRIPPED 2.0.”


Kanye West has settled the $10 million lawsuit over his canceled Saint Pablo Tour, according to reports.

The Grammy winner canceled the remaining dates of his Saint Pablo Tour back in November 2016. “The remaining dates on the Saint Pablo Tour have been canceled,” a rep for West told E! News in a statement at the time. “Tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase.”

E! News later learned that exhaustion was to blame and according to an insider, West was working around the clock on various projects including fashion designs while also trying to make sure to spend time with family.

Months later in summer of 2017, West and his touring company, Very Good Touring, filed a $10 million lawsuit against Saint Pablo Tour insurers Lloyd’s of London.

In court documents obtained by E! News in August, West’s team alleged breach of contract and breach of good faith and fair dealing.

“More than eight months later, the insurers have neither paid on the multi-million dollar claim nor denied the claim,” Kanye’s team stated in court documents. “Nor have they provided anything approaching a coherent explanation about why they have not paid, or any indication if they will ever pay or even make a coverage decision.”

The attorney representing West’s touring company in the lawsuit, Howard King, told Rolling Stone in a statement Wednesday that “the dispute has been amicably resolved.”

While many outfits on New York Fashion Week runways may be hard to pull off in real life, the hair trends were surprisingly relatable.

Designers like Alexander Wang and Michael Kors traded in time-consuming looks for simple yet sleek hair that just about anyone can do and afford—hellz yes. 

Even better: You may own many of the accessories that designers are using. They’re throwbacks, and while you don’t style your hair with them anymore, they’re go-tos when you’re lounging around the house. Banana clips, thick headbands and stretch hair combs—these drugstore accessories have transformed from something you use to keep hair out of your face to the season’s hottest hair trends.
