Just in time for the weekend, Christina Aguilera debuted her new single “Your Body” on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show. The single is a track from her upcoming album titled Lotus, which is due out November 13, 2012. “Your Body” is going to be available for download on iTunes this coming Monday, September 14.

The pop track is very catchy and sassy, and showcases Christina’s vocals and I am totally loving it. I’m sure there will be some killer remixes to this song in no time, but even without a remix, the song is very refreshing. I’m eager to hear the rest of her album and certainly can’t wait to see her music video which she’ll apparently give a teaser for on The Voice on Monday.

Aguilera told Seacrest, “This album is about self-expression and freedom. There is a lot I have gone through personally over the past few years and this record represents a rebirth for me. The record is about freedom and getting back to the root of who I am and what I love to do.”

Are you watching the third season of The Voice? If so, you better enjoy the current judging panel while you still can. Come 2013, those red swivel chairs might have new occupants. Did Britney Spears scare Xtina off television? Nope. Christina Aguilera revealed to Billboard magazine, that she wants to take a break to get back to making music. A similar sentiment shared by Jennifer Lopez as to why she left American Idol. The “Genie In A Bottle” singer did leave the door open and commented, that she’ll probably be back after doing her own thing for a while. That’s assuming that The Voice is still on the air

“[The Voice] kept me away from my heart, which is creating my own music,” Christina said. “It’s been a joy to be a part of other people’s journey, to be able to inspire and be a part of new singers coming up in this business … but I was starting to get really worried and concerned that I wouldn’t have the time to go and be an artist again.”

Aguilera’s imminent departure shouldn’t come too much of a surprise. Executive producer Mark Burnett expressed during a press conference a couple of months ago, he’d like to have a rotating roster of judges for upcoming seasons. Given that the initial ratings for the NBC show are down from their previous two outings, it looks like the show may have reached its peak in the Spring. I maintain airing another season so soon after Season 2 was a mistake. That said, I’ve watched the first couple of episodes and really enjoyed a few of the blind auditions. Check out my Top 5 performances so far below.

My Top 10 Favorite MTV VMA Performances

In: Matt, Music, Videos

Every year at the end of summer, MTV hosts the Video Music Awards, all an out spectacle celebrating the best music videos of the past year. Each year the VMAs turn out some of the most exciting and theatrical performances.

With this year’s awards show airing tonight, I decided to compile a list of my personal favorite VMA performances. Keep in mind I have a thing for female artists, drama, powerful voices, and train wrecks.

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.”

Christina Aguilera is about to return to your playlists with a new collaboration with hit-maker Max Martin called “Your Body“. The diva has been shooting the music video and working on her album cover shoot as well. I’ve included a couple pictures that she posted below.

The leaked demo of “Your Body” hit the web today and I think it’s definitely in the right direction for Christina. Although it’s a dance track, this demo version is a bit too slow for me so I’m hoping the real version will pick up the pace. I’m pretty sure that was the same thing that happened with Britney Spears “Hold It Against Me,” with the demo being slow and the real one being much more up beat. Regardless, the track sounds hot and I love the lyrics.

Listen to the demo version of “Your Body and let me know what you think!

The Voice Season 3: Some Mentors Revealed

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Even though, I think airing two seasons of “The Voice” back-to-back for the 2012-2013 television season is a horrible, NBC is doing it anyway. No wonder they’re perpetually in fourth place among the big networks. They seriously need me on staff. I’ll whip them back into “Must See Television” shape. Think of me as the Asian Andy Cohen 😉 Well enough of my daydreaming, let’s talk “The Voice”.

For Season 1, Sia, Monica, Reba McEntire and Adam Blackstone assisted the judges in mentoring the contestants. Last time around Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton needed double the star power. Each judge called upon two of their famous friends to advise the singers. Kelly Clarkson & Miranda Lambert (Shelton), Alanis Morissette & Robin Thicke (Levine), Ne-Yo & Babyface (Green), and Lionel Richie & Jewel (Aguilera) were all “trusted advisers”. Find out who’s on tap for Season 3 below.

It seems that Christina Aguilera can’t seem to get herself out of the clutches of those catty women over at “Fashion Police.” Xtina has had a feud with Kelly Osbourne for years, but now it looks like the feud has spilled over into the hands of another member of the panel. Last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, none other than Joan Rivers took a little stab at the blonde pop star and Voice judge.

After roasting Winona Ryder on her shoplifting past, Joan took a saunter over to the Xtina side of life and told a little story about a “recent experience.” She says, “I’m at Spago’s with [daughter] Melissa, and we’re eating dinner, and Fatso is across the way, and she comes lumbering over with that ‘no-neck’ look. And I go, ‘Here it comes.’ She comes over to my table and says, ‘You gonna finish that?’” Ouch! That’s quite a low blow, even for the legendary comic. Check out the video below.

Billboard: Summer Songs Of The 1990s

In: Donovan, Music

With the race officially on for summer song of this year, I thought it was the perfect time to revisit some former “summer song” title holders. The good folks over at Billboard.com have dug up the archives and tabulated the best summer songs of 1990s. Taking into account airplay and sales, they’ve listed the Top Ten songs of each year during the 90s decade.

What is about summer songs that bring forth a unique sense of nostalgia? Browsing through the Billboard list brought forth a flood of memories upon reading the songs of each year. I could literally recall the smell and visual the sights and experiences of that respective summer. If I could dig up my old mixtapes of yesteryear, 90% of these songs would’ve probably been on there.

Take a trip down memory lane and check out what teenagers were pumping out of boomboxes (does anyone still use that word) on the beach during the 90s. It’s interesting to see who’s still around and which artists have faded into music obscurity. Don’t forget to VOTE on which year in the 90s had the best summer songs.
