On New Year's Eve, five-time Grammy winner Christina 'Xtina' Aguilera shared a funny snap of herself clutching a massive champagne bottle captioned: 'New year, this energy.'

The platinum-blonde pop diva was technically sharing footage from December 18 when she celebrated turning the big 4-0 at her $10M Mulholland Estates mansion.

As Karol G's 2020 track Bichota played in the background, Christina - who boasts 56.8M social media followers - announced: 'I'm not turning 40. I'm arriving at 40!'

Not a mask was to be seen on Aguilera's guests - including make-up artist Etienne Ortega - as she posed with them under a sign reading 'Forty.'

COVID-19 is spiking nationwide, and there have been over 770K confirmed cases in Los Angeles leading to 10,345 deaths as of Thursday - according to Johns Hopkins University.

On Tuesday alone, 7,181 people were hospitalized with the coronavirus - an increase of nearly 1,000% from two months ago, according to the County of Los Angeles Public Health.

Mayor Eric Garcetti signed an executive order on December 2 forcing residents to remain in their homes and all non-essential travel is prohibited (including on foot, bicycle, or scooter).    

'Failure to comply with this order shall constitute a misdemeanor subject to fines and imprisonment,' read the public order.

The former Mouseketeer eulogized 2020 in a funny in memoriam sequence during Amazon Prime's Yearly Departed comedy special, which started streaming Wednesday.

In a clip she posted, Christina used her unmistakable four-octave soprano pipes to belt a cover of Sarah McLachlan's 1993 song I Will Remember You to mourners.

'At the end of this year, I think we all need to have a good cry and a good laugh and put it to bed,' Aguilera told ELLE on Thursday.  

'But if I were to remember some positives, it would definitely be getting to spend some quality time with my kids. Making sure I got to stay in one place and hibernate for a minute and process the past and look forward.  

'I think many of us reflected on changes we want to make for the future. I think we can at least take away some positives on that note. But it's been a very individual process for everybody, very personal. So, short and sweet, "Out with the old, in with the new."'

On January 12, the Loyal Brave True singer will celebrate the 13th birthday of her son Max Liron from her six-year marriage to marketing executive Jordan Bratman, which ended in 2011.

Christina is also mother to six-year-old daughter Summer Rain with her Burlesque PA-turned-fiancé Matthew Rutler.   

There's still no date set for Aguilera's long-awaited nuptials to the 35-year-old MasterClass investor, who popped the question way back on February 14, 2014.

'This year has been really challenging in so many ways, but one of the few silver linings has been spending it with you @xtina and our family,' Matthew gushed last Friday.

'I love you more than words. You always make the holidays ultra festive and filled with laughter and love. With 2020 about to be in the rearview "our troubles will be miles away."'

Career-wise, the Staten Island-born, half-Ecuadorian belter hasn't released a full-blown record since her eighth studio album, Liberation, back in 2018.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
