Access Hollywood?s Billy Bush spent a day with Christina Aguilera back in 2002, and now four years later, Christina?s will to titillate is still there.
But gone are the chaps and bikini top, and in their place ? nothing.
We caught up with the ?Dirrty? diva as she bared all for a GQ photo shoot.
?It felt good. It was great and I had lots of fun today,? Christina said. ?I think it’s important for women to feel comfortable in their own skin and be able to show their sensual side.?
Indeed, Christina certainly shows off hers in the June issue of GQ (on newsstands June 23).
?Each setup had a little sex appeal to it,? she explained.
A little?! Certainly an understatement as the pop diva was posing nearly naked.
With just a pillow and a sheet, the 25-year-old Grammy winner posed on a white bed paying homage to Jean Harlow. But as it turns out, beauty has its price.
?My back kinda hurts from arching a lot, but it’s good,? Christina joked
In the GQ article, Christina had wonderful things to say about her new husband Jordan Bratman.
?Before Jordy I don?t think I?d ever really encountered what a real man is,? she said. ?Most men that I?ve known in my life ? and growing up with an abusive father, trying to find a father figure in sketch guys ? tended to be guys twenty years my senior, often married, and generally just dogs. That?s what I thought men were. He?s the first guy that treated me like I feel like a woman should be treated.?
Aguilera provided GQ even more insight as to what it must have been like for her before Bratman.
?He?s a very strong person, a strong man, who will carry me through any difficult time in my life, who is always there to save me. He can get me out of my own box, my own depression. He?s my angel. He saves me in so many ways,? she added.
Christina also offered some praise for fellow pop songstress Kelly Clarkson, telling GQ ?I think Kelly Clarkson has a really powerful voice. She?s really good. And when I met her, she was a real sweetheart.?
And while it was nothing but glowing remarks for her husband and Kelly, the claws came out when asked about Mariah Carey.
?She was never cool to me? to the point that one time we were at a party and I think she got really drunk, and she had just really derogatory things to say to me?But it was at that time that she had that breakdown, so she might have been very medicated,? Christina told GQ.
But Mariah did not take the remarks sitting down.
?I had hoped that Christina was in a better place now than the last time I saw her when she showed up uninvited at one of my parties and displayed questionable behavior,? Mariah said in a statement to Access Hollywood. ?It is sad yet predictable that she would use my name at this time to reinvent past incidents for her promotional gain. It is in my heart to forgive and I will keep her in my prayers.”
Nothing like a good celebrity feud. But we give the final word to Christina who responded, telling Access ?At this point in my life, I do not want any bad energy with anyone. My intentions where not to upset Mariah with any statements that were published or taken out of context. I have all the respect in the world for her.?
