Was Christina Aguilera Channeling My Little Pony When She Visited TRL In 2000? (PHOTOS)

Christina Aguilera looks JUST like My Little Pony.

My little genie, my little genie…

Happy Throwback Thursday, everybody! Today, we dive deep into the international photo archives to try to understand the worldwide atrocities that can result from an overly aggressive foreign policy strategy. JK! We’re gushing over Christina Aguilera‘s 2000 visit to MTV’s era-defining music countdown show, “TRL,” and how her jewel-tone hair extensions made her look EXACTLY like a My Little Pony! EASILY CONFUSED, WE KNOW.

Check out more #tbt photos of Christina Aguilera after the jump.

Christina Aguilera looks JUST like My Little Pony.

You may not be able to SEE the fingers fluttering, but you can FEEL them.

On hand to sing a special live duet with He of the Perpetual Dreamboatery, Brian McKnight, Christina’s just too much here! Xtina is only, like, 19 or 20 years old, and yet she looks like she’s belting whichever song she was singing just as powerfully as if it were “Let There Be Love” in 2013!

Christina’s clearly VERY OK with being turned into a My Little Pony doll.

Hmmmm, now if Maxim’s October cover girl were an actual My Little Pony, which one do you think she’d be? Wind Whistler? Magic Star? Princess Sparkle? Majesty? No, there’s only one option: If Christina Aguilera were a My Little Pony, she would be Forget-Me-Not, because — HELLO! — it’s 2013, and we’re still talking about this onetime live TV appearance she made back in 2000. Q.E.D., motherf***er.

(WARNING: Do not take your My Little Xtina into the bathtub with you. HER HAIR WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.)
