Absolutely ridiculous. Christina Aguilera looks insanely hot on the current issue of Maxim magazine. With a svelte new body, I don’t blame her for showing off all her hard work at the gym. It’s sexy without being too trashy like her previous editorials with the publication. Remember her slut-tastic one during her “Dirty” era?

In addition to posing for photographer Mark Liddell, the 32-year-old singer opens up about what she finds sexy in guys. Speaking of sexy guys, Maxim asks her which of her former Mickey Mouse Club co-stars was cooler, Justin Timberlake or Ryan Gosling? Find out her answer below, along with a few other memorable quotes and more photos from her sizzling photo shoot. Side note: Love the headline, “Hear the Voice, See the Body!” Preach Maxim, preach.

How do you define sexy?

I’m such a down-to-earth girl, I’m comfortable in just a jersey and boy’s underwear. Trying too hard to be sexy is the worst thing you can do. Sexiness should be effortless.

Does a guy need to be able to sing to turn you on?

“Not at all! 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.”

So what guys do you like?

I love genuine guys; that’s why I pretty much stay away from celebrities. I don’t care about money, because, trust me, I can support myself.

Who was cooler back in the Mickey Mouse Club days, Ryan Gosling or Justin Timberlake?

They were both very charismatic, but I think I have to shy away from the question. I don’t want this to bite me in the butt later. 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.
