Tyra Banks recently opened up about how she struggled to gain weight as a skinny 11-year-old. But now the America's Next Top Model boss is claiming to have a tad extra jiggle on her body as she showed off her 'muffin top' on Twitter.

The 38-year-old star drew attention to the sides of her stomach and back by sharing a picture of herself during a photo shoot. She told over 7.2 million followers on the micro-blogging website: "Check the juicy muffintop on my back!".

In the shot, Banks flaunts her midriff in a pair of blue jeans with a co-ordinating denim top which is tied at the top of her waist. But it seems she's her own toughest critic — there was barely an inch to pinch on her waist. Although she was naturally trim when she was younger, Tyra's weight has yo-yoed over the years. She now works hard at staying fit and was recently spotted strenuously jogging around New York City.

The naked truth

Christina Aguilera proved she still has plenty of naked ambition as she unveiled the cover for her new album, Lotus.

The pop star and current coach on The Voice revealed the new artwork through her Twitter account on Friday. The former Disney star puts her bare curves on show as she emerges from a Lotus flower, in keeping with the album title. With her hair covering her chest, the star seems to have taken inspiration from Botticelli's famous 1486 Renaissance painting, The Birth of Venus.

Discussing the album, the 31-year-old revealed on Twitter: "Conceptually I didn't target one particular sound/genre. I made music that felt good," about the album. As previously reported, Aguilera will be taking next season of The Voice off to focus on her music career. Discussing the break Christina told E! Online, "In order to be the best coach I can be on that show it's a good idea to go out and be able to have the experience as an artist."

Aguilera also described her break from The Voice as bittersweet, adding that she will miss fellow coach Adam Levine despite their alleged feud last season.

"It's like we have definitely become brother and sister," she said. "We goof around and play around. I'm going to miss it."

Rihanna storms UK singles chart

Rihanna has scored her sixth number one in the UK singles charts after her new song Diamonds entered in at first place on Sunday.

The Barbadian beauty's new song toppled rapper Psy's Gangnam Style off the top spot. Surprisingly, One Direction's Live While We're Young landed in at third place.

The band was leading the midweek chart, and many were expecting the pop group to claim chart glory. On Wednesday, One Direction was almost 250 copies ahead of Rihanna's Diamonds.

However, Rihanna not only showed she was too strong for the boys, but she was also more than a match for superspy James Bond. The new Bond theme by Adele debuted in at fourth place, despite only going on sale on Friday.

Rihanna was understandably happy with her chart success, tweeting: "Diamonds debuts at NUMBER ONE on the UK charts!!!! #thatdamnRihannaReign !!!! UK is hard body."
