Christina Aguilera might be one of the most talented singers there is, but don't try to win her over with a song. The singer — set to make her return to The Voice this fall — is Maxim's newest cover girl.
And she's not just showing off her new, slimmed-down figure. In the interview, Aguilera reveals what she considers to be a cheesy romantic gesture.
"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," she told the magazine.
Hear that? It's the sound of a million potential suitors breaking their guitars.
I can totally understand that sentiment. Call me crazy, but any sort of dating gesture that involves a guitar, poetry or a heartfelt love letter makes me uncomfortable. However, giving me a massage — or taking over a huge chore that I hate — puts a potential BF on my good list in no time flat.
The secret to dating, Aguilera says, is to be honest and open all the time.
"I love genuine guys; that's why I pretty much stay away from celebrities," she tells the magazine. "I don't care about money, because, trust me, I can support myself."
And sexy is all a state of mind.
"Trying too hard to be sexy is the worst thing you can do," she says. "Sexiness should be effortless."
