Christina Aguilera Covers Marie Claire

by at . Comments

Christina Aguilera's eyes look downright mesmerizing on the February 2010 issue of Marie Claire. The pop star claims she's mellowed a bit since her early years.

“In this crazy business, it’s so easy to build up a lot of walls and a lot of bitterness. And that's just no way to live," the four-time Grammy Award winner said.

“[I can now use softer tones] I’ve been afraid to in the past, allow myself to go to a place of ‘less singing.’ I’m more vulnerable and strong at the same time.”

Christina Aguilera is turning over a new leaf musically.

The 29-year-old mom says her son Max also inspires her to be lighter in her music, despite the fact that “I had a really hard time being light before."

"I’d get a little weird about it being too cliché. My first record was very clichéd pop - what everyone else wanted. [My second album Stripped] inspired by a lot of pain. [My third, Back to Basics,] still had some sort of relation to my past."

"[My new album] is just about the future, having my son in my life, motivating me to want to play and have fun.” Sounds like a great combo to us.

X-tina’s new album is called Bionic, and it's due out in March. We can't wait. Click to enlarge more Christina Aguilera pictures from the magazine ...

It's kind of hilarious! I've never fit into an E-cup before. I look at my husband and go, 'Guess what size this bra is?' And when I tell him, he's just amazed. We keep the tags that prove it, to look back for memory's sake!
