    From thin to voluptuous, Christina Aguilera’s weight has taken scrutiny from critics over the years but the pop diva has embraced her curvy bodycleavage and all.

    Aguilera, a judge on the “The Voice,” opens up about her weight in an interview with Lucky magazine.

    “Actually, the challenge I’ve always had is being too thin, so I love that now I have a booty, and obviously I love showing my cleavage,” the 31-year-old pop star, who graces the cover of the October issue, tells Lucky.

    Although Aguilera has been vocal about her confidence with her body, Hollywood and critics have not welcomed it. The star’s promo photo for NBC’s “The Voice” was digitally altered, cutting back Aguilera’s curves. In her interview, she talks about being “bulldozed” in the industry during the early days of her music career where she felt pressured to remain thin and maintain a certain look.

    “When you’re young, it’s so easy to get bull­dozed,” Aguilera says to Lucky. “There were these two ladies who worked at the record label who always wanted to come to fittings and dress me up like a Barbie doll. It was disgusting.”

    Aguilera says of her weight: “Hey, if you can work it and you can own it, that confidence is going to shine through.”

    The Grammy-award winning singer will debut “Your Body,” the first single from her soon-to-be released new album on the Season 3 premiere of “The Voice” on Sept 17 at 8.10 p.m. The song off her new album (no word yet on the album title), is said to be her “rebirth.”

    “If you love ‘Fighter,’ you’re going to love my new album,” Aguilera says. “As a 30-year-old woman, I’ve been uncovering my independence, and it’s been really fun to explore in the new songs.”

    Aguilera has been nominated for the 2012 Alma Awards‘ Favorite TV Reality, Variety, or Comedy Personality or Act. In her category, are former “American Idol” judge Jennifer Lopez, “Dancing with the Stars” contestant William Levy and comedians George Lopez and Gabriel Iglesias. She will receive a Special Achievement Award presented at the ALMA Awards, which will air September 21 at 8 p.m.
