With time away, Christina Aguilera does not play.

Instead, she gets her body in a serious shape that is fitted like jeans. The singer showed off her new figure via a Twitter picture, making it known that she hit the gym during her seasonal absence from NBC's The Voice and will be camera-ready come next season when she is back in the judge's chair.

Xtina showed off her hourglass figure in a charcaol bra top and clingy, hip-hugging skirt while standing on a beautifully done terrace overlooking an ocean vista. As part of shooting her new music video for the song, "Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti (Today I Want You For Me)," the blonde songstress flaunted the sultry-meets-sexy look, according to MSN. She completes it with sky-scaping heels, loosely bumped platinum blonde locks and rose red lips. 

But the pin-up pose is alluring because of Aguilera's sexy confidence, exuded in spades. The singer, who was a tabloid target due to weight gain last year, appears to have gotten it together and silenced critics. And she looks so fresh and so clean, with an expression oozing the kind of cool that no amount of hate can stop.

A guess it's true that a picture can be worth a thousand words. Tell us what you think below!
