Christina Aguilera is unrecognizable in new photos: See her transformation for PAPER magazine

With Christina Aguilera, you never know quite what to expect.

Xtina stripped down, draped herself in wax and scrubbed off her makeup in a series of snaps for PAPER magazine, and in some of the photos, she's nearly unrecognizable.

A few of the images are more jarring than others: In one, Aguilera appears to lick own reflection in a mirror; in another, her nude body is clothed only by some sort of sheer gelatin substance. But one shot, in which Aguilera's bare face shows off her rarely-seen freckles, is perhaps the most eye-catching of the bunch.

Another jarring photo shows Aguilera's face dripping in clear and colored wax. Definitely a statement, although we're not quite sure what it's saying!

The photos come a month since her last revealing snaps -- she shared a series of black-and-white photos of herself in a bathtub.

She's certainly not the only star to go nude on social media this year, as you can see in the gallery below.

It’s out! So thrilled to share my brand new Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur campaign with @peta! I’ve dreamt of shooting this for as long as I can remember. 💘 If you don’t truly know what goes into making fur, please educate yourself. Fur is cruel no matter what. If you wouldn’t skin and wear your own dog, then you shouldn’t wear fur at all because all animals are created equal. Save our animals, save our planet and join me and #Peta in making more conscious choices ❤️🐺🦊🐻❤️
