Christina Aguilera Has 'Taken Risks' On New Album
Star tells MTV News that some people may not understand Lotus...
And now, she's back with a brand-new album ... and if you thought she was about to play things safe, well, then you don't know Christina Aguilera.
"I've already put out a greatest hits record, so I've been in this business for a while, and ... I'm a risk taker, that's just who I am at heart. It's who I can't help but be. It's who I always am in nature, as a person and as an artist," she told MTV News.
"And with that comes hurdles and certain areas where people aren't going to get it and understand it artistically; sometimes it will go over their heads and it will not be as commercially successful."
Xtina continued: "[And] personally, I'm someone that's always growing and evolving," she continued, "And at this point of my life, I feel that I've reached a place where I'm completely embracing everything about who I am, and I'm having more of an understanding of myself."
And based on Lotus' first single, Your Body, Aguilera seems poised to once again regain her spot amongst the pop elite.
She's not hiding from her past, or letting everything that happened in the aftermath of Bionic slow her down ... if anything, she's embracing everything, and moving forward. Fearlessly so.
"I wanted to make a record that speaks to those fans who grew up listening to my music and yet reintroduce new fans ... watching me on The Voice at 6 years old who don't know about my first record," she said. "This is a really exciting time to show them both sides."
Earlier this week, Aguilera compared her latest effort to smash hit record Stripped, even claiming that it will have a Fighter 2.0 song called Army of Me.
