On her last album Bionic, Christina Aguilera encouraged listeners to “Desnudate”… But on her latest studio effort, she’s the one getting naked.
The 31-year-old half-Ecuadorian songstress has released the oh-so-revealing cover artwork for her forthcoming album Lotus.
Aguilera wears nothing to cover her skin but her long, flowing blond hair to cover her breasts, while a white light effect conceals her lower body part. She stands at the center of a lotus flower as if she’s blossoming from it.
When discussing album, she explained the meaning behind the title, “Album title: Lotus. Representing an unbreakable flower that survives under the hardest conditions and still thrives.”
“If you love ‘Fighter‘, you’re going to love my new album,” she gushed about the new record in an interview with Lucky magazine. “As a 31-year-old woman, I’ve been uncovering my independence, and it’s been really fun to explore in the new songs.”
On another occasion, she told Ryan Seacrest, “This album is about self-expression and freedom. There is a lot I have gone through personally over the past few years, and this record represents a rebirth for me. The record is about freedom and getting back to the root of who I am and what I love to do.”
Aguilera’s seventh studio album will be released on November 13, with “Your Body” as its lead single.
Proving she’s the ultimate fighter with some serious pipes, Christina Aguilera took to The Voice stage on Monday night’s live episode.
The 31-year-old half-Ecuadorian singer and coach of NBC’s hit singing competition performed her empowerment anthem “Fighter” with her four remaining contestants.
But Aguilera didn’t break into her Top 20 single, right away… First, the Grammy-winning singer teased her fellow Voice coach Blake Shelton.
Wearing a blinged-out leotard, fishnets and a cowboy hat, Aguilera ribbed Shelton with his own song “Hillbilly Bone” and later tossed a wad of cash at the country star as bare-chested cowboys danced next to his chair.
Then Aguilera’s team members Chris Mann, Ashley De La Rosa, Jesse Campbell and Lindsey Pavao joined their coach and the Crenshaw High School choir on stage to perform a rousing rendition of “Fighter.”
The performance brought a little levity to the night as Aguilera and Shelton would each be forced to send one of their singers home at the end of the quarterfinals performance episode.
In the end, Aguilera elected to send Jesse Campbell packing, but not before reassuring her team members that no matter the results this would be just the beginning of bigger and better things for each of them.
