The 32-year-old also showed off a dramatic body transformation, proving that she just “keeps getting better.” Was it a nip-tuck or a painfully strict diet that led to the star dropping a reported 40 pounds?

Xtina's tips for slimming down aren't just for the famous and photographed.

“Laughter, happiness, breathing, and I did some yoga,” Aguilera told Extra TV. Sounds simple, right?

She's also in touch with her inner kid when it comes to cardio.

“I have these paintball guns, and we’re just blowing off steam,” says Aguilera of her preferred stress buster. “It’s so much fun.”
