Striking a sultry pose and showing off her new figure on Maxim’s October cover, Christina Aguilera shares her thoughts on what defines sexy. “Trying too hard to be sexy is the worst thing you can do. Sexiness should be effortless.” And when it comes to love, the part Bolivian songstress doesn’t require her man to carry a tune. “The quickest way for me to feel weird and run for the hills is if somebody sits down and serenades me with a guitar. It’s not my thing.” Speaking of men, the once-again Voice judge remembers her Mickey Mouse Club male co-stars, and even one special friend. Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake “were both very charismatic. They were tight, you know. They’d walk around together all the time, same as me and Britney would. Now look at us. It’s funny how that played out.” The full Maxim story hits stands September 17th.
