Quotable: Christina Aguilera Is Not Ashamed Of Her Dirrty Days

“No, I think looking back, I’m actually more pleased that I did it, because I got it out of my system. And I think it was very brave, in the face of a lot of closed minds. I try to motivate women and make them feel empowered by their sexuality — anything that a man likes to make a woman feel weak about.”

– Christina Aguilera, on whether she regrets her assless chaps-wearing Xtina days, in Marie Claire. Her new album, Bionic, is due out this spring.
