Aguilera talks about her simple decision not to announce her pregnancy. Somehow it figures that the criminally uncircumspect Paris Hilton would be the one to spill the beans, at an MTV Video Music Awards party. [When asked] if Hiltons faux pas angered her, she shrugs it off. Because I hadnt said anything, people thought I was trying to keep it this big, bad secret, and thats not the case at all. I just wasnt commenting. Im not being like, Hey, everybody, Im pregnant! Im not that girl.
Aguilera says she likes the idea of a big family, although she doesnt have a set number of kids in mind. But the domestication of Christina Aguilera is likely to be complicated. What will it mean for someone who has treated her confrontational sexuality as both a rallying cry and a right?
Were so labeled. If youre too sexual, youre slutty. If youre not sexual enough, youre a prude. I like to put it out there as a topic of conversation. Why does it bother you? Whats your problem with it? Am I really hurting you? Lets get to the root of it. I have more than one side of me that likes to get out on a stage and sing. Sometimes I want to be aggressive, sometimes I want to feel empowered in my sexuality and my vulnerability. I want to put all that out there.
