Christina Aguilera dropped f her eighth studio album Liberation back in June that was equipped with features from Ty Dolla $ign, GoldLink, 2 Chainz and Kanye West. The 15-track tape reminded fans what X-Tina’s still got and after a few months letting the music do its thing, she’s now the latest cover star for Cosmopolitan‘s October issue.
The 37-year-old mother one opened up to the publication about dating and how she could never be with someone in the business. “I’ve had opportunities, but it isn’t my style to date another person in the business,” she said. “There’s gotta be something wrong with you if you want to be in this business. I mean, hi! I definitely have my issues. I think that I can only handle one celebrity] in the relationship, and I need to be it.”
Christina is currently engaged to Matthew Rutler with who she shares her daughter, Summer Rain, with. She previously divorced music manager Jordan Bratman in 2010 and had a relationship with backup dancer Jorge Santos but then revealed he was into men more than women.
Back in February Christina Aguilera shared a photo her posing all sexy in her bathtub. That was before she dropped f her latest tape, Liberation, so it’s safe to say this new bathtub photo sees her feeling way more relaxed, especially since her tape landed her another Top 10 album on the Billboard 200.
The “Pipe” singer’s caption for the bubble bath photo also comes with a caption that fers advice for self-appreciation: “Don’t forget to exhale & love yourself “
As for the title her album, X-Tina previously explained what exactly it means to her.
“I wanted to have a title that meant freeing myself from anything that wasn’t my truth,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “That’s a constant I think in everyone’s life: every time you feel stifled in a current situation where you feel you’re not quite yourself or being bogged down by other people’s opinions. Or when you feel like you’re stuck in a stagnant place. I kinda felt like I was asleep at the wheel and going in autopilot for the past few years, not living up to my full potential and the purpose why I’m living on this Earth: to sing and make music. So I’m getting back to that and getting back to my own personal truth. It’s almost like a new shedding skin.”
