Christina Aguilera is showing off her shape in the October issue of Maxim mag.
The singing star and Voice coach, who has come under fire for her yo-yo-ing weight over the years, doesn't seem to be shying away from striking sultry poses and revealing some skin. (Although, she's artfully covered on the cover.)
Some highlights from her chat in the issue, hitting newsstands Sept. 17:
How do you define sexy?
Xtina: "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."
Does a guy need to be able to sing to turn you on?
Xtina: "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."
Who was cooler back in the Mickey Mouse Club days, Ryan Gosling or Justin Timberlake?
Xtina: "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 would. Now look at us. It's funny how that played out."
Bless this Queen
