Christina Aguilera offered $3m to be the face of plus-size dating website

Remember when Caroline Flack – the Xtra Factor presenter who dated One Direction’s Harry Styles, 14 years her junior – was offered £500,000 to become the face of a ‘cougar’ dating website?
Well, in a similar vein, TMZ has reported that Christina Aguilera has been offered $3m to be the face of a dating website for “big and beautiful” women, highlighting her weight gain in recent years.
Whitney Thompson, the founder of the site and America’s Next Top Model’s first plus-size winner, sent Aguilera a letter, saying she’d like the Dirrty singer to front the website.
Just as the Caroline Flack stunt was never likely to go ahead, I doubt Aguilera will take the money, though if she did it’d certainly be calling the site’s PR bluff.
According to TMZ, as part of the deal, Aguilera would agree to at least one TV commercial, one radio commercial, two photo shoots, and four public appearances for the site, thebigandthebeautiful.com. She also wants Christina to sing a jingle for the website.
