David Wild of Rolling Stone spoke with Christina Aguilera before the release of her new album this fall. “We’re in the home stretch,” she said. Aguilera calls this album a declaration of independence from her teen pop past. “When you’re seventeen, you’re green,” she admitted. “I fell into something that wasn’t quite me. Being twenty-one now, I’ve grown into more of what I feel like as a woman. This record is definitely my baby.” Any thought that she’s still a teenybopper pop queen vanish when she utters the line, “I don’t need anyone to make me over/Save your bullsh** for another day” on ‘Make Me Over’.
