Christina Aguilera Attended ‘The Addams Family’ Premiere Dressed As Morticia Addams and Now Some Fans Are Calling Her The ‘Queen of Halloween’
Christina Aguilera is looking scary good. On Sunday, the iconic pop-star arrived at the premiere of the Addams Family movie dressed very similar to the grande dame of the Addams family herself, Morticia. Never one to phone it in on the red carpet, Aguilera fully committed to the look, wearing a long, slinky black dress with a laced-up plunging neckline. She paired the look with a soft smokey eye and a matching black manicure. Her signature blonde hair was styled into a center part with blunt bangs.
Not only did Xtina look incredible, but she also looked like she was having a great time.
Aguilera was attending the Addams Family premiere to promote the song “Haunted Heart” that she wrote and recorded for the film.
“Haunted Heart” is a haunting, jazzy track that puts Xtina’s powerhouse vocals to good use. The song has been described as “dramatic” and “soulful”, and definitely catches the essence of this story of an offbeat family while also staying true to Aguilera’s pop roots. Not only is the song a bop, but Aguilera also appears to be having the time of her life promoting it. Aguilera took to her social media accounts to share behind-the-scenes pictures of the big night. “Growing up, I always loved the #AddamsFamily. It’s been so fun to watch the story of this classic family evolve over time,” Aguilera captioned one of her pictures. “That’s why it meant so much to record my latest single #HauntedHeart for this new rendition of the movie”.
Aguilera indeed made the “Addams Family” premiere a family affair, walking the red carpet along with her partner and two kids–all of whom happened to be dressed as members of the Addams Family too. Aguilera’s fiancé, Matthew Rutler, dressed in a simple pin-striped black suit that was almost an exact replica of Gomez Addams’. Meanwhile, her children, Max and Summer Rain, dressed up in near-identical outfits Pugsly and Wednesday Addams. We applaud Aguilera for convincing her children to agree to a group family costume. Basically, the entire Aguilera brood was embodying #familygoals, and her fans were living for it.
The red carpet premiere of “The Addams Family” isn’t the only place Aguilera has been having fun creating spooky looks.
Her social media accounts are also filled with other appearances where she is impressively pulling off the Halloween aesthetic. On Saturday, she wore a sexy gothic pin-up ensemble complete with dark lipstick and finger waves, to her performance of “Haunted Heart” at Freeform’s “31 Nights Of Halloween Fan Fest”. The all-black outfit with dramatic winged liner gave off major silent-film-star vibes. We can always count on Xtina to serve us with some old Hollywood glamour.
Excitingly, Aguilera is not the only Latinx person involved in “The Addams Family”. For the new animated movie, Guatemalan actor Oscar Isaac lends his voice to the role of Gomez Addams–a role previously made famous by Puerto Rican actor Raul Julia in 1991. Needless to say, it’s refreshing to see Latinxs consistently involved in such a long-lasting and durable franchise.
As for Christina’s fans, they were blown away by her Morticia Addams-inspired look.
There’s nothing the people love more than one icon paying tribute to another, and Christina and Moritcia have more in common than meets the eye. Like Morticia, Aguilera has never been shy about unabashedly expressing her sexuality. Both women prove that a woman can be seductive and sensual in addition to being a fully-formed human being. We call that a match made in heaven.
Some fans felt moved to christen Christina with a new title:
If Mariah Carey is the Latina Queen of Christmas, then Xtina is definitely the Latina Queen of Halloween we didn’t even know we deserved.
This Twitter user loved how Xtina’s family seem as committed to embracing the Halloween spirit as she is.
You know the old saying: “The family that dresses up in costumes together stays together”. Or something like that.
A lot of fans were living for the way in which her children were posing–especially her daughter, Summer
It looks like Xtina might have to keep an eye on her throne–her daughter might be coming to snatch it.
This fan made an accurate point about how comfortable Aguilera looks in her Morticia costume.
Can we expect anything less from a superstar who has been performing since she was a little girl? Sat what you want about Xtina, but everything she does, she does 100%.
