Christina Aguilera's pared-down beauty in the heartbreaking video for ‘Say Something’

Christina Aguilera is famous for her wild style and heavy makeup, but the pop star debuted a decidedly understated look in the heartbreaking new video for "Say Something," featuring indie duo A Great Big World.


The 33-year-old, a judge on The Voice, wears her blond locks pulled back and dons a simple black dress, showcasing her most dramatically slimmed-down figure yet.

Christina can be seen on the verge of tears as she belts out the emotional ballad. The viewer is then shown a series of couples who are forced to say goodbye to one another, including an elderly gentleman who bids farewell to his dying wife.


Christina’s performance in the video is also subdued, as she sings in a quieter, less aggressive voice.
