In the late 90s, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears battled it out on the Billboard charts. This Fall, the two pop divas will face off against each other on television with competing reality singing shows. Before we get the Nielsen ratings for their Fall premieres, the blonds go head-to-head on newsstands everywhere. Earlier today, Patrick shared Britney Spears’ Elle October 2012 issue, and now I bring you Christina’s Lucky magazine cover.
The 31-year-old Voice judge dons denim shirts, jean vests and lace tops for her photo spread snapped by Robert Erdmann. Apparently it’s the 1980s all over again ;) Inside the issue, X-Tina discusses her new album, achieving success at an early age and her body issues. Check out her photos below, along with a few quotes. Don’t forget to vote on which former Mickey Mouse Club alum has the better October 2012 cover in our poll.
On Fame At A Young Age
“When you’re young, it’s so easy to get bull-dozed. There were these two ladies who worked at the record label who always wanted to come to fittings and dress me up like a Barbie doll. It was disgusting.”
On Stripped’s Success
“I was 21 and fearless. It was a really great turning point for me to be the artist I’d always wanted to be.”
On New Album
“If you love “Fighter”, you’re going to love my new album. As a 30-year-old woman, I’ve been uncovering my independence, and it’s been really fun to explore in the new songs.”
On Challenges With Her Body
“Actually, the challenge I’ve always had is being too thin, so I love that now I have a booty, and obviously I love showing my cleavage.”
