Did US Weekly Fabricate Xtina's "Fat" Quotes?

Earlier today the Internet was flooded with headlines reading "Christina Aguilera: I Was Forced To Be 'Toothpick Thin' In 2002" and "Christina Aguilera tired of being 'skinny, white girl."

Intrigued, many flocked to the articles in which Xtina allegedly opened up about her weight gain.

USA Today attributed the article to US Weekly who said the article came from Billboard. Currently Billboard's cover girl, it made sense. But, Billboard had no quotes from Christina on her weight within it's feature Q&A. When CBS Local reached out to the magazine a rep said, "It appears some of these quotes have been misattributed to Billboard. We are trying to get to the bottom of this and to have it corrected where possible."
