Reflecting on the music I was idolizing, now I would not let myself listen to it let alone a 15 year old girl. With her first single "Genie in a Bottle" it was cute and catchy enough to overlook the underling message of subservient femininity to dominating masculinity.
With her Lotus Album I actually see a flower growing through the crack of the asphalt. To break down that metaphor lets look at the true spelling of ASS FAULT. Who is to blame, or better yet where does the program come from that runs through the music industry of demeaning the feminine? From some ASS hole, that's who's FAULT it is. From a demented masculine energy that has been controlling the mainstream music industry, that only creates successes out of those that follow their distorted agenda to degrade the feminine. Whether an artists knows it our not they have to play that game to be successful. Christina played it and is still playing it through even this album. With the super catchy cute song "Your Body." It's actually a great song when you hold it in the purity of loving someone and appreciating the ability to give them love through their body. Ahh that's an amazing and beautiful feeling, isn't it? To love someone with all your heart and to be able to express that on the physical plain is awesome!!!
Yet in Christina's music video for the song she murders every guy she comes in contact with but only after getting her sexual satisfaction from them. It went from in her early career, giving her power away to men to now having so much power over them that she doesn't need them and they are disposable that she can express her heartlessness over it. That is a demented femininity that was set forth by the ASS FAULT to be bought by young teens coming into their femininity to distort it before they even know what they goddesses essence truly is.
Yet some how within the album of Lotus I can feel what songs Christina pushed for to be on the record. I can feel her true femininity being expressed as the innate rightful goddesses she is. I hear it through "Lotus Intro," "Let There Be Love," "Make the World Move," and "Light Up the Sky."
Naming her album Lotus reveals the true aspects of femininity. The Lotus flower's meaning is one of spiritual transformation.
The Lotus Flower grows in the deep mud, far away from the sun. But, sooner or later, the Lotus reaches the light becoming the most beautiful flower ever.

I think Christina is in a great place in her career, where she can balance the dark and rise to become her own Lotus Flower. She looks beautiful in the video from the American Music Awards, below. She is portraying a health body image, loving her curves, herself and exuding self confidence, but from a true source of Femininity.
