Christina Aguilera looks unrecognizable in makeup-free photo shoot for "Paper" Magazine.

The 37-year-old said she is not completely ditching make-up and wore a dirty blonde wig during the photo shoot.

The singer told the publication she enjoyed the "theatrics" of dressing up, saying: "I'm a performer, that's who I am by nature".

The world has seen Christina Aguilera pull off a headline-generating makeover before-most notoriously when she made a decision to overhaul her image with more-is-more eyeliner and a less-is-more bikini top for her second, breakthrough album Stripped in 2002 -but her latest transformation is about to become her most memorable hit yet.

And while the pop star says she's still "a girl that likes a beat face, let's not get it twisted" - we're totally loving her stripped down look (below) even more!

She's serving all the looks and all the wisdom: "Be fearless in breaking new boundaries and don't be afraid to go against the grain of criticism along the way".

Christina has gone through multiple transformations over the years, and another one is expected when she releases her eighth album this year - her first since 2012's Lotus. Aguilera is also returning to the big screen with Drake Doremus' science fiction movie Zoe and plays herself in Melissa McCarthy's Life of the Party.

Adding: "I hate when people say, "Why doesn't she just leave?" "I need movement, I need to go explore, be an artist, create and transform".

I remember Aguilera from her song "Dirrty" and that general era. She's a fan of Childish Gambino, Chance the Rapper and Cardi B. Get Aguilera on a song with Cardi B. That'll be good.
