Christina Aguilera Talks Naked 'Lotus' Album Cover: "It's About Embracing Freedom"
Christina Aguilera's been in the public eye for over two decades and we've seen the singer go through a multitude of artistic, creative and body transformations.
"I've always been one to make it very clear, love me or hate me, take it or leave it, this is who I am," she says. "I embrace my body, and I embrace everything about myself. Coming full circle is a celebration of freedom and happiness because that's what [my new album] Lotus is representing. I'm embracing everything that I've grown to be and learned to be."
So is that why she chose to strip down completely naked for the cover?
"It's very interesting, because I don't see that album cover as being nude at all," she says. "I actually feel very covered and it's all about embracing white light and freedom, and I didn't want it to be about too much fashion. I wanted it to be raw, real and free and a celebration of life and the woman I've become."
Body shape aside, the performer said that after experiencing pregnancy and motherhood (she has one son, Max) she finds the female body "amazing."
