Christina Aguilera ‘No Soccer Mom,’ Slams Backlash Over Video

Christina Aguilera is not willing to “settle down” like some say she should now that she is a mother of one. According to Aguilera, her son will understand and respect a woman’s right to express herself and not be ashamed — a message she attempts to push through in the video for “Not Myself Tonight” and one she has campaigned for before on songs like “Can’t Hold Us Down”. “I never claimed to be a cookie-cutter soccer mom. That’s all good for some people. Not for me,” Aguilera told Access Hollywood recently. “[My son is] going to grow up in a household where he knows mommy expresses herself artistically and some of that will have to reflect itself sexually too at times. He’s going to learn to respect the fact that women are allowed to express themselves and not feel shameful about their bodies or their sexuality.” As previously reported, Aguilera’s video for “Not Myself Tonight” premiered April 30. It is the lead single for her forthcoming album, “Bionic,” due in stores this June.
