Christina Aguilera is in the middle of her worldwide Back to Basics tour.

But that doesn't mean she and husband Jordan Bratman don't knowshow to keep the romance alive despite the distance.

Hi, Xtina!

"He'll fill my room with balloons and I won't be expecting it," she told People magazine Wednesday at a party in New York City for her Nylon magazine cover. "I'll come in the room and there will be balloons everywhere and a card and my favorite chocolates all around â€" and I'm always sending cards when I can, just cute little love notes."

What else makes their marriage work?

"Naked Sundays definitely keep it spicy! And we make sure that we always have fun together and keep it fun and sexy. We went to Disneyland with a couple of friends on Valentines Day, keeping it super fun and light."

"We go out to romantic dinners a lot. We always make key spots, dim, sexy spots. We do anything your average couple would do, but with an interesting twist."

X-tina says her and her hubby do plan on having a family - but like Gisele Bundchen said, don't expect any little ones just yet.

Bratman, a music exec, was on hand to support his wife Wednesday night at the Hotel Gansevoort, where other party guests included Eve, Lance Bass, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Amber Tamblyn, Alan Cumming, Joss Stone and Joel Madden.

Justin Timberlake also stopped by to chat with his former touring mate.

They've already done battle over who looks better in a tiara.

But now Christina Aguilera and Fergie are really getting down and dirty. The sexy singers recently rocked the same dress for different occasions, forcing The Hollywood Gossip to ask readers who looks the best in it.

We know who Josh Duhamel would pick, but he doesn't get a vote. Neither does Xtina's husband, Jordan Bratman. It's up to you, the unbiased fan, to show Fergie some love - or let Aguilera know just how awesome you think she is.

As far as our Photo Finish comparisons go, this is a tough one. No doubt. Past competitions, such as whether Matthew McConaughey topless looks better than a half-nude Owen Wilson, were no-brainers compared to this fasion face-off.

So take your time and make a decision. It may be the most important vote you cast until the 2008 Presidential Election.

We've already showed you near nude Christina Aguilera photos from Maxim. Now, here's the interview that goes along with them:

A lot has changed since the last time we talked, eh? You're officially off the market. Is your husband cool with your sex symbol status?
That's partly why I fell in love with him. In my art I tend to be very sexual. I've always felt connected with my sexuality. I love [Jordan Bratman] because he has his own goals. He doesn't latch on to what I do. And because there are so many double standards, it's very important to me as a female to play upon sexuality and be very strong while incorporating that in my art and work.

Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera

What kind of double standards do you encounter in the music business?
Well, imagine if a woman released an album with the word sex in it, like Justin Timberlake's FutureSex/LoveSounds. Instead of feeling liberated by it, she'd be labled and called names…That's not to say I wouldn't do it.

How did a regular guy manage to score such a hot, gutsy superstar?
I've always liked normal guys. Guys in the entertainment business tend to be self-absorbed. They can also overlove what I do or get intimidated by it, which makes it difficult.

Is it hard to maintain your privacy - and keep your music under wraps - these days?
Yes, and it makes me sad for the entire music industry. You can download anything for free. You can look at anything, anytime, anywhere. The business is definitely more tabloid-driven than it was five years ago.

The Hollywood Gossip note: We think Antonella Barba understands.

There seems to be a new celebrity divorce in the tabloids every week. How do you guys keep it going? Role-playing? Costumes?
How did you get into my bedroom? [laughs] We always have fun. I like to play doctor.

Back to Basics has a track called "Still Dirrty," but some people say you're softening up. True?
Never!

But in the past you were always feuding with people like Pink, Eminem, and Jennifer Love Hewitt…
So much of that is a tabloid thing. When the media saw that my image was more aggressive, they ran with it. So many things get misconstrued. I have no interest in it. Life is dramatic enough. I don't need to create drama.

Then why did you write the song "F.U.S.S.," which stands for "F-ck You, Scott Storch," directed at your former producer?
That's a way of burying my experience with him. We did great work on Stripped. He was like a brother. Then he started working with other solo artists, and I felt like there should have been a little loyalty. When I tried to work with him again, he made uncalled-for demands. It was disappointing that someone would get affected like that.

Do you ever listen to your own music during sex?
There's no way I could do that. I'd be too busy analyzing my voice. I get very nitpicky. I like listening to Thom Yorke from Radiohead; that's good sexy-time music.

Good tip. What's next for you? Kids? Politics? Christina Aguilera, movie star?
I want to do movies more than ever. I've been reading scripts, but nothing has interested me. I don't want to play a singer - unless it's completely different from me and my music. When I step into acting, I really want to be acting.

Note to Britney Spears:

It's possible to look sexy without looking trashy.

Christina Aguilera Nude for W

Don't believe us? Just ask former Mouseketeer pal, Christina Aguilera.

Here is the recent Grammy Award winner, posing for a photo spread in Maxim.

It's tasteful. It's attractive. It makes Xtina a role model for desperate women, such as Kim Kardashian, who think you need to put out a sex tape in order to gain attention.

Sheer talent is typically enough. Let's hope newcomers like Robyn Troup keep that in mind.

Let's also hope cameras catch the "Ain't No Other Man" singer on a Sunday next time. That would lead to some Christina Aguilera nude shots.

We're just sayin.

No, this isn't the tagline for her latest tour.

Instead, it's what lucky husband Jordan Bratman gets to see at least once a week: Christina Aguilera nude. All day. In every activity.

Christina in Paris

"We claim ourselves to be coziest couple ever," the 26-year-old Grammy nominee tells Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show Wednesday. "We have something called naked Sundays."

"Excuse me?" DeGeneres asks, perhaps wishing to steal the idea for herself and Portia de Rossi. "Did you say naked Sundays?"

"You have to keep marriage alive, spice it up," says Aguilera, admitting that some added heat is required even though the two have only been married for "a big whole year."

"[In November] we just celebrated our first anniversary, and on Sundays we just do everything in the house, and we're just cozy and laid back," she says. "We don't need to go anywhere, we're just with each other." We do everything naked. We cook naked."

Sounds like this gal is nude more often tha Kim Kardashian on screen with Ray J.

Christina Aguilera loves babies.

First, she sent a holiday package to Britney Spears and her two tykes: Sean Preston and Jayden James.

Xtina for Extra

Now, the singer has purchased a gift basket for the new loves in the life of Diddy: daughter D'Lila Star and Jessie James.

Aguilera contacted baby boutique Petit Tresor on Tuesday and had over $1,000 worth of girly things shipped to the music mogul's mansion, reports TMZ.com.
The basket, which included two of every item for Diddy's kiddies, consisted of frog slippers, hand-embroidered clothing sets, musical teddy bears, pink cherry shoes, chenille pillows, mobiles, and leather diaper bags.

It's the sort of gesture that might make The Sports Gal actually like Xtina.

Beside being friends, Christina and Diddy share a business relationship; Christina is featured on Diddy's latest single "Tell Me," while his girl group, Danity Kane, will open for Aguilera on her upcoming tour.

Diddy and girlfriend Kim Porter welcomed the twins on December 21.

Don't worry if Britney Spears is too busy with new boy toy, JR Rotem, to remember about her two actual boys at home. A former friend/rival has the commando queen covered.

Reports state that Christina Aguilera is playing Santa for the Spears' spawns, after ordering them Christmas gifts for them from a posh Los Angeles store.

Christina Aguilera: A Fresh Start!

The singer may be on tour in Europe, but she called hip celebrity baby boutique Petit Tresor to make sure the presents would arrive in time for the holidays.

Meanwhile, Britney is on tour of clubs with Paris Hilton and may not remember there even are holidays coming up.

Boutique owner Nina Takesh quoted Aguilera as saying: "I want to give them something adorable for the colder weather".

The star chose two blue cashmere schoolboy sweaters for $129 each for Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline.

No word yet on what K-Fed has picked out for his two kids, but hope Kendra Jade got a say in the matter. It's never too early to talk about the birds and the bees.

The cover of Blender is about to get mighty dirrrty. In the best possible way.

Indeed, of one The Gossip's favorites, Christina Aguilera, gave the magazine an interview recently. Here are some excerpts from it:

Madrid Premiere Pic

On getting props from Guns N' Roses:
"Axl Rose was backstage in the greenroom at the VMAs … and I heard that he made everyone in the room quiet down so he could hear my performance. When I met him backstage, he shook my hand and said, ‘You are one of the greatest vocalists of our time.'"

On taking charge of her own career
:
"It's really true: With freedom comes a ton of responsibility. I'm the only one in charge of the ship now. And if it sinks, it's my fault."

On the inspiration behind her new look
(ogle over Christina Aguilera pictures now):

"I watched tons of old movies. Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn, some Fellini. It was a real risk for me to go to this more glamorous place. But I wanted a different take on sexuality: more coy, more playful, more light, more tongue in cheek.

If a makeup artist would have handed me a red lipstick a few years ago…how do I put this? I would have wiped it off right then and there â€" that's the polite way of putting it."

On her marriage to Jordan Bratman:
"It used to be, the only good relationships I ever had were with gay men. That was before I met Jordy."

On having Jewish in-laws:
"I've been learning lots of Jewish words … Schlep. Like, I have so much stuff I have to schlep with me. And oy. And, of course, shiksa."

On her new more mature image:
"When you get married, you tune out a lot of the old bull$hit that used to bother you."

On Jessica Simpson slipping a note beneath her hotel suite door when they stayed in the same hotel during the MTV VMAs:
"She said the sweetest things about my work. Women are so supercatty sometimes … But Jessica is supersweet and noncompetitive. I sent her a big bouquet of flowers."

Once again, we heart X-tina. Instead of remaining catty with her competition, such as Jessica and Britney, she gives them props ... and presents for babies such as Sutton Pierce Federline.

She's good people.

If there was any sizzle left in the alleged feud between pop stars Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, it appears to have been put to bed.

The Gossip has learned that Christina took the high road and purchased a $570 gift bag for Sutton Pierce, the second little bundle of love Britney brought into this world recently.

A Spears Smile

The bag of goodies, according to MSNBC, includes a hooded towel, overalls, slippers, and a crockery set… though we're not entirely sure what a two-week-old child needs with a crockery set. This is one of those gifts that's more for the parents â€" we all know Kevin Federline's career is a crock.

[Ba-dum-ching!]

The gifts will make a nice addition to the lavish room Sutton Pierce shares with his older brother, Sean Preston, which reportedly cost the Federlines $100,000 to redecorate in blue with nautical themes and a large SPF â€" the initials of both tykes (and perhaps a subtle reminder to always use sunblock?) â€" stenciled on the wall.

"Britney worked with two designers to make the nursery state of the art," said a friend of hers.

"She told the decorators to spare no expense. She's indulging herself and her new son. This is definitely the most joyous time of her life."

The most joyous time of our lives? When we saw this Britney Spears picture.

Let us go on record:

We love Christina Aguilera. The beauty can actually sing, doesn't seem to desperately crave the spotlight and even married a kind of ugly dude.

Burlesque Premiere Pic

We also love Fergie. The solo artist and front woman for the Black Eyed Peas kicked an addiction to crystal meth and is now speaking out against the drug. She also enjoys the occasional London Bridge. Gotta respect that.

But here's the thing: Only one star can be the true princess of the pop world. As you can see from the image below, each singer is trying to wear this crown. Literally.

Let us know, readers: Xtina or Fergie? (And, no, you can't vote for Brooke Hogan.)

Christina Aguilera Quotes

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!

Oh, my God, candy! I had a huge craving for candy toward the end of the pregnancy, from Starbursts to Skittles. I actually took a picture of myself with my big belly in a little lingerie top, surrounded by bowls of the candy I like
