Xtina Opens Up In Redbook

christina in december redbook

Although she only separated from hubby Jordan Bratman two days before these photos were taken, Christina Aguilera gives Redbook the deets on what keeps her strong, focus and inspired.

Here are some HIGHlights:

On the power of women:
"Every woman has the ability or the drive to do it all and have it all. Men aren't as strong and capable as we are. We're machines."

On balancing work and motherhood:
"My life is cyclical. First it's album time, then it's touring time. I go through phases, so we roll with the punches. I'm not a 9-to-5 woman who has the same kind of lifestyle for years on end. I couldn't do it. I need the spontaneity, that thrill of change. That's part of how I get inspired. You know, this is what the cards have in store for Max. We put it into his brain early on that he's a traveling guy. He adapts well when we go from hotel to hotel."

Nicole Richie on Xtina:
"It's very clear through Christina's music what a strong woman she is. But to watch her as a mother only skyrockets the respect I have for her. She is the woman who's recording until 4 a.m. and up at 7 to be with her son. Her dedication to Max is incredible."

Wonder how she's really holding up!

    She is such a strong role model for all hetrosexual women



  2. 2

    love her no matter what ! :*:*



  3. 3

    yeah, she's superwoman, we get it. I refuse to make this woman a victim, when it was she who broke up her marraige by cheating. It sure was GREAT timing publicity for her shitty album or her new movie. She's so calculated and planned out….there is nothing spontaneous about her.



  4. 4

    yeah, well those hard working, 9-5 women (who keep this dumbass relevant nonetheless) bust their asses doing real work 365 days a year to keep a roof over their families heads, food in their stomachs and cloths on their backs —- sorry their "spontaneity" of picking up ill children at school or having hot dogs and mac n cheese cuz they forget to get the steak out of the freezer isn't exciting enough for her egotistical, ugly self.



  5. 5

    i love her so much



  6. 6

    shes probably handling things just fine. this divorce isnt as fresh to her as it is to the rest of us. they were seperated for what a month and a half before they annouced it to the world. shes had time to deal with it privately.



  7. 7

    she looks great on the cover….. love her simple look,without bright make-up

    wOWW she´s absolutely beautiful!!!! Can´t believe her bauty!!
    And we all know that she´s a good mother and very very mature!!Re: April 20th – It´s pretty clear that you hate her so much… cuz in every post of her you comment and talk shit about her!
    GET A LIFE LOOSER!!



  9. 9

    As a woman I feel her words insultant towards my husband. My husband is as strong and capable of many things as me. And we both have our special things.
    She pisses me off, go cheat on some more on your couples. Obviously you have no respect for nobody except yourself-absorved ass.



  10. 10

    No one cares. Her husband was ugly. She's dumb, and worthless. End of story.

    Re: bleahf – the comment wont apply to all men, but after growing up with 4 older brothers, i understand what shes saying. i can honestly say i am mentally & emotionally stronger then all 4 of them put together. at the end of the day, i can handle a lot more then them.



  12. 12

    I kind of agree with Bleahf, I am a 22 year old woman and I am sick of her going on about how superior we apparently are to men. There are things my fiance can do that I can't do, he's equally as talented as me and he's just as strong an individual as the next person. We all have our faults and our weaknesses, our strengths and our talents. I am not a machine I am a human being, I rely on my fiance the same way he relies on me, it's about equality not superiority. There are fathers who are better parents than mothers just as there are mothers who are better parents than fathers, there are guys who are better more devoted lovers and partners than women and vice versa. She comes off as a man-hater whenever she opens her mouth - it's a jaded and unnecessary attitude to take.

    Re: pig-perez – i'm offended by her words so fuck you



  14. 14

  15. 15

    I love her, she truly is an amazing role model for women. I truly look up to her power as a female and go by it.



  16. 16

    Re: April 20th – YES… YOU TAKE YOUR TIME TO COMMENT ABOUT HER!!!! YOU TAKE YOUR TIME READING HER COMMENTS HAHAHAHA YOU HATE HER AND YOU ALWAYS ARE LOOKING FOR WHAT SHE DOES…. AND SHE DOESN´T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT YOU… CUZ U DON´T EXIST IN HER LIFE SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO……………GET A LIFE LOOSERR!!



  17. 17

    This "CHRISTINA" nonsense is the Hollywood marketing machine preparing for her new movie Burlesque……

    Don't you fools see it?



  18. 18

    i don't think she's saying men aren't strong or anything . but obviously in her life experience it was her mother that carried her family on her back . she's never had a strong male figure in her life, she's only seen the women fight and work hard though a mess of events. as a teenager who grew up with three siblings and a single mom i'm not offended by what she said. she's right. women are very powerful. i don't know why you all are offended it's been known that she's a feminist and has always been very clear in wanting to give women the strength and confidence they deserve which is one of the reasons i've been a fan. i don't see her playing the victim card at all. she's handeling it very well in my opinion of course it's gonna suck even for the person who filed for divorce. we don't know why she did, all we know is the rumors and rumors aren't right 90% percent of the time. she clearly still has respect for her husband and some kind of love because it's not like she's running around bashing him and going "oh boohoo he broke my heart, this is awful feel bad for me" she's being very private about the matter and taking it in stride so it's whatever….. with that note she looks SO good normal but her december instyle uk pictures are way more beautiful she should stop with all that crazy wear. she's too old less makes her look fresh.

    LOVE HER.

    Holy airbrushing batman - is that Paris Hilton!?!

    Re: Valentina – She's allowed to be feminist if she wants to. What she means by "machines" is that women for the most part are more diligent, proactive, and don't act like crybabies when the shit hits the fan. Women have dreaded periods every month (until menopause) and bear the weight of a new baby for 9 months. Men are riding the gravy train, especially since they as a gender did not have to struggle for the right to vote, to own property, and to have respectable professions. See, we women FIGHT to earn what we already should've had long ago, and still face double standards. And you wonder why the female life expectancy is higher than the male. She doesn't hate all men, and neither do I, it's the public who's misogynist. Get with the program, people!

    BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL ♥

    whatever didnt read this, just wanna say taht I Love her as an artist and shes got hella of a voice



  24. 24

    Re: Luke Warm – And how do you know she cheated? Were you there? Do you personally know her or her husband? Don't believe everything you hear.



  25. 25

    Yes, Christina is pretty, always has been, loved the whole Genie in a bottle and that era. I wish she had maintained it! Somewhere along the way her image got really screwed up (for me it was Fighter) (just like britney)(next, miley?)

    Really, when was the last time she was presented with a *wholesome* image, rather than some made up sunset blvd version? To be perfectly honest I was thrown off that she had so many clothes on. That's pretty bad. I prefer the clean image, as I have grown tired of the "in your face look at my boobs, fake tan, pamela anderson bullshit."

    The question is really if this an image change, or are we just looking at some public relations work over the crapness of her last album (granted that is purely based on public review - I did not listen to it) and the fact that she is going through a divorce and there are custody issues surfacing.

    blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

    If men aren't as strong as women why do they fight in the front lines in all our wars and get their faces blown off. All you do is sing, big fuckin deal.



  27. 27

    Does no one see how WEIRDLY photoshopped her right arm is?



  28. 28

    BEAUTIFUL!

    Re: Luke Warm – And where is the proof that she cheated on Jordan? Your just assuming and making shit up which proves that every statement you make about Christina are completely invalid. So…stop talking (made up) shit and you won't look like such a dumbass all the time! And according to you she also filed for divorce for publicity for her upcoming film….right. First of all that is the most idiotic thing I have ever heard! Who does that? "Yes, I'm going to end my marriage so I can get more publicity so my first movie will do well….what fucking sense does that make. Is that something you would? Yup, that must be it since the idea came from your stupid head and came out of your herpes infected lips…..Seriously, who the fuck would do that? Not Christina….she has a family that she loves and not to mention she has been with Jordan for 8 years. This was not "planned", she loves him, but hey shit happens. Thats life! Speaking of "life" why don't you get one you fuktard!

    All this talk about Christian bashing men and how women are superior to them is bullshit. If you haven't heard the song "Can't hold us down" then listen to it…closely. She is talking about being equals and that women she be able to do the same thing as men without being called names like "slut" and "bitch". God, you people really know how to flip shit around and hear what you want to hear and it couldn't be further from the truth! Listen before you talk shit about it….and also make sure you actually understand it too. People really know how to flip shit around and hear what they want to hear and it is so incredibly fucking annoying!!!!!!



  31. 31

    And Christina you should know this! Throughout all the recent negativity and shit talking that has been surrounding you lately one thing remains constant through it all…. My love for Xtina! Love you girl…rock on!
    xoxo - Nick

    Re: April 20th – Her success offends your misery. We get it.

    Re: Midnight Empress – Agreed and i am a man.



  34. 34

    Re: Midnight Empress – Women are useless. Men are superior. We are bigger/stronger and faster than women. Women has never done anything in the history of mankind that has been significant. The invention of electricity/light bulb,airplanes,simple medicines that killed people by the millions back in the day..All done by men. Women use their vagina as a commodity and has been since the beginning of time. We're genetically programmed to want to boink anything in site. It's not that men are dumb..It's just science. Girls exploit that. All women are prostitutes to a certain extent. A early 20 something male does not want a serious relationship. He wants to finish school and start a career. But the guy is expected to pay for everything. Give rides,etc. What is the only thing a girl has to offer in that relationship? Exactly.



  35. 35

    Most women will date guys based on income and that is why women will never be equal. I sign into aim everyday and see the Aim today pop up with its typical news stuff and sometimes a poll. I saw one that was about relationships and income. It had a poll up that said "How important is spousal income to you, and a large percent said important. Then the next page it asked women whats the ideal house size and they the majority said "Large 4+ bedrooms"..I thought that was funny. I just find it funny that feminist argue so hard about women not having equal opportunity in the workplace or fair wages,etc but then polls like that pop up. Sucks for them. So sorry girls, You can't complain about that but then turn around and say a mans income in very important to you and that a large house is ideal. THAT the MAN has to pay for.

    But why are women so successful at being a "gold digger"? Because men are stupid. They are so easily manipulated by a girls vagina and looks thous allowing the girl to basically get whatever she wants. But this is because of science and nature. How men are programmed to just enjoy sex. So it basically boils down to is "Hey I'm a girl I have a vagina I have the power" and it's true. You have guys that still always have the maturity of a frat boy with them their lifetime. Im talking about the type of guys, that crowd around hot chicks and saying stupid stuff. For some reason, Men can't live without sex. But a woman can.



  36. 36

    But then you have the smart guys like me that pick up on girls with ease because we understand it. Then we laugh at the typical guy for being a dumbass. I mean all girls are attention whores its just what extent are they an attention whore and gorgeous girls have an ego to them. So for guys like me its really easy to pick them up. Basically theres 3 rules to picking up a girl way outside your attractiveness range. 1) Make her feel insecure. 2) Knock her ego down to size and 3) Don't show her any attention.

    Ask yourself this girls, Don't you find it weird that the guy you like the most is normally the one that treats you like crap if hes even paying attention to you at that giving time? Or the one that ignores you? Yeah, that saying "nice guys always finish last" is so true.

    Basically girls are dumb. Men are stronger,faster, generally smarter than girls. But of course you're going to say "LOL men are the stupid ones"..Well you base that off of relationships. The guy does dumb stuff while in a relationship,etc. Im talking about actual education and intelligence wise not by doing retarded stuff in relationships. But want to know why? Because we don't care. So basically, Women should be chasing men around not the other way around.



  37. 37

    You girls are lucky you have that wet spot between your legs and you have desperate vagina manipulated men eating out of your hand. Because if suddenly every guy in the world woke up and was able to control his hormones and also realized what was actually happening. You girls would have one major problem on your hands.

    So basically most women unknowingly and sometimes indirectly basically exploit science and nature and then some girls..Know how to get what they want and we call that gold digging whores.
