Christina Aguilera covers the October issue of Maxim. I do believe she’s mostly promoting her recent weight loss, and I don’t blame her one bit for doing so! The magazine certainly could have chosen a better cover shot because Christina’s blonde hair really blends into the background. Even with the power cleavage effect going on here, she looks pretty washed out. The rest of the photoshoot is much, much sultrier and in a more subtle way. That red dress slays me, and Christina looks very comfortable in her skin.
The interview isn’t all that though, but what do you expect from Maxim? The journo does, quite interestingly enough, try and force Christina to choose her favorite male co-star from her days on Disney’s “Mickey Mouse Club” show. Girlfriend takes a very diplomatic approach in answering the question:
Being sexy shouldn’t be difficult: “I’m such a down-to-earth girl, I’m comfortable in just a jersey and boy’s underwear. Trying too hard to be sexy is the worst thing you can do. Sexiness should be effortless.”
Do musicians turn her on? “Not at all! The quickest way for me to feel weird and run for the hills is if somebody sits down and serenades me with a guitar. It’s not my thing.”
Ryan Gosling or Justin Timberlake? “They were both very charismatic, but I think I have to shy away from the question. I don’t want this to bite me in the butt later. They were tight, you know. They’d walk around together all the time, same as me and Britney [Spears] would. Now look at us. It’s funny how that played out.”
“Now look at us. It’s funny how that played out.” Christina’s not throwing any shade at Britney, is she? She had better not play that game, but I think that even though there was a fair amount of rivalry between the two ladies about a decade ago, that’s mostly in the past. However, I am LOLing at Christina’s suggestion that she is a casual, totally down-to-earth girl when it comes to being sexy. She loves getting dolled up in overdone hair, makeup and spray tanner. I think she’s appealing to the Maxim fantasy of girls who are supposed to pretend they roll out of bed looking like a pinup without any further maintenance.
