Christina Aguilera may be a new mom with a young son at home, but she has no plans to dial down her sexy routines and racy videos.
“It’s like telling a painter, ‘don’t paint nude women now that you’ve become a parent.’ You still have to express yourself as a human being,” she tells Entertainment Tonight.
“Especially, I think as a woman, we’re so shamed of our sexuality… I have to keep in touch with myself as an artist and be able to express all sides of myself.”
When it comes to raising her son, Max Bratman, no topic is taboo: “When you shame a subject like sexuality, that’s when you raise the perverts,” she says.
And for now, she’s happy to keep her family small. “For now, I’m so good with one!” she says, adding she wants more kids “eventually, in the future.”
With her new song “You Lost Me”, Christina explains how she writes her music. “It can come from your childhood, it can come from a bad day,” she says of evoking emotions on command. “Pain is almost a comfort zone, in a way.”
