Christina Aguilera seemed to have experienced a little accident at Etta James' funeral. When the "Beautiful" hitmaker performed a rendition of the late R&B legend's hit song "At Last" at the Greater Bethany Community Church City of Refuge in Gardena, California last Saturday, January 28, mystery fluid was caught on camera streaming down her leg.

Several blogs were quick to speculate that the talk-about fluid might be menstrual blood. There are yet words of clarification, but the mentor/judge of "The Voice" was seen wiping something off her leg with her other leg at the 3:50 mark in a video of her Saturday performance.

The accident aside, Aguilera has expressed how honored she is on being chosen to sing at James' funeral. To PEOPLE, the 31-year-old singer said, "It isn't every day that an artist can meet the person who inspired them and their career. Not only did I have the incredible opportunity of meeting my idol, the legendary Ms. Etta James, but to be asked by her family to perform at her memorial was so very touching and yet bitter sweet."

"Etta wasn't just any performer, she was a strong woman whose talent came from a place so deep it moved people in ways they never felt before," she continued. "Losing her was, to me, like losing a part of my soul. I can only hope that she felt the love in the room as we all came together to pay tribute to her and celebrate her life as a person and as an artist. She will be deeply missed and I thank her family for allowing me such a great honor."

It's been forgotten now and it clearly was self tanner. If it were blood there would be a bright red liquid not orangy brown.

Even if it IS menstrual blood, honestly, what is the big deal? ALL OF US GIRLS HAVE OUR PERIODS ONCE A MONTH. It can get messy, but please stop acting like it's super gross. No one would be fussing about the blood if she had a nose bleed.

Anyone knows this tramp everythings calculated to fit for her performance since she's been doing the Marilyn Monroe wannabe thing from the look ,the weight gain the whole transformation includes doing what Marilyn DOES as well since Christina is Obsessed with everything Marilyn that includes letting her period run down her legs and on her skirt. Marilyn use to run around doing the same thing and it was reported that she would have it on her skirt or pants or whatever she was wearing.Christina needs to stop having an identity crisis and stop staging these Marilyn Monroe same antics to get attention. What a poser Marilyn wannabe.

A tampon and some underwear would be far more hygienic that wiping the drips off....reminds me of walking down the street in Alice Springs...ehww...

Guess what? We ate human beings! We burp, fart, vomit, poop, and ladies sometimes have accidents. It's a part of life! The first person I showed this to was my teenaged daughter, who has just started having her period. I can't tell you how empowering or helpful it is to young women to see that celebrities are just normal people, too! Christina is not exactly known for good judgment. That outfit alone with her big, fake breasts hanging out? And the way she OVERsang Etta's song, making it more of a showcase for herself? Please. Accidents happen and it did here. You put yourself out there and make a spectacle of yourself, you've got to expect it.

Don't shoot the messenger! Christina was the one who probably wasn't wearing underwear & at the start or end of her period! No way is that self tanner. Like it would drip from only between her legs & from no where else? Give me a break.

Worst-ever case of "looky-here". Misogynistic bullying ought to be a crime.

First of all it was obviously her self tanner streaking from being sweaty, not menstrual blood. If you honestly think she would just stand there wiping away blood from her period while singing at her idol's funeral you are crazy. Second of all the fact that anyone is trying to focus on tan sweat, when she is up there pouring her heart out is really sad and disgusting. She gave a powerful and heartfelt performance, try focusing on that.

Some things should be edited, not put for public viewing. This was not a moment that required integrity, not sleazy notoriety. You must be getting fired and this website going out of business!! Pathetic and tasteless

I'd really like to now what is wrong with this website, that you would write a story to embarrass someone like that!! You should be ashamed of yourself, whomever wrote this story. It must have been a man who took this pic to think that this is a funny story!!!
