Christina Aguilera Gives Epic L.A. Pride Performance With Multiple Star Guests

Over the weekend, Christina Aguilera headlined L.A. Pride on June 11, and her performance was packed full of surprises — including a duet with Mya and wearing a bedazzled strap-on dildo. The star also brought out Kim Petras and Paris Hilton to assist with the fun-filled set.

Ahead of the performance, Variety announced that Aguilera had planned to bring out Mya for a mini “Lady Marmalade” reunion, and the two did just that. Xtina donned a neon yellow bedazzled jumpsuit and a peacock-style feathered accessory, while Mya wore a matching yellow leotard with fringe accents on the arm. The crowd sang to every word and even tried mimicking Xtina’s iconic run.

The fun didn’t stop there as Aguilera did an outfit change to a green look and accessorized with a large, bedazzled strap-on dildo to perform with Kim Petras. The two sang “XXX” from Petras’ EP Slut Pop, which the crowd seemed to really enjoy. Aguilera’s shocking outfit choice was the talk of Twitter as it caught many people by surprise, but social media seemed to enjoy it. “Christina Aguilera wearing a strap on at Pride is gay rights,” one person tweeted.

One of her surprise guests didn’t have to travel too far as she was recently spotted at Britney Spear’s wedding this past Thursday. Xtina brought out Paris Hilton, where she DJ’d and her first song was “Toxic.” Hilton also sang “Stars are Blind” with Aguilera and gave a shoutout to Spears for being a “free woman.”

Aguilera ended the festivities with a performance of “Beautiful” and thanked the LGBTQ+ community for their continued support over the years. “Thank you so much for having me tonight. I am so honored. I am so grateful. I am so humbled by your love and your support over the last 20-plus years,” she ended the show by saying, “I am so happy to always give back to you and give a voice, or try to, to anybody that feels like they’re suppressed, that feels like an outcast. I love these shows more than anything, because you know what? We represent freedom – freedom of expression, owning who you are, fearlessness, and also fantasy.”
