‘Bionic’ Woman Christina Aguilera Sits Down With Fuse

For some reason when Christina Aguilera sat down with Fuse, “Dirrty”—a song that’s now eight years old—repeatedly came up throughout the 19-minute conversation (“I’m proud that I had the balls to do it!”). Of course, the lyrics to that one make some of the ones on Bionic seem like Shakespeare. But the standout quote of the entire gab fest (aside from her interviewer coining the word “patrillion”)? “If I’m a bitch then I’m a bitch!” Watch below.

Xtina discusses how she got the role in Burlesque (“They had seen the work that I did when I hosted SNL.”). She also talks about her son and her husband (who she says is “that one solid thing down the center that just seemed to bring everything into focus.”), as well as the provocative imagery in her “Not Myself Tonight” video (“I can’t think about that. It’s not really on my agenda to worry about what are people going to think of it.”).

Thankfully, the sexy S&M-clad singer was spared any questions about Lady Gaga comparisons.

So did you pick up Bionic this week?
