christina aguilera maxim october 2013 Christina Aguilera can't choose between Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake in Maxim's October issueChristina Aguilera is showing off a beautiful figure in the October issue of Maxim magazine, gracing its cover and being featured in photographs inside. She also talks about her definition of sexiness and who she thinks was cooler back in the day, Ryan Gosling or Justin Timberlake.

How do you define sexy?

“I’m such a down-to-earth girl, I’m comfortable in just a jersey and boy’s underwear. Trying too hard to be sexy is the worst thing you can do. Sexiness should be effortless.”

Does a guy need to be able to sing to turn you on?

“Not at all! 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.”

So what guys do you like?

“I love genuine guys; that’s why I pretty much stay away from celebrities. I don’t care about money, because, trust me, I can support myself.”

Who was cooler back in the Mickey Mouse Club days, Ryan Gosling or Justin Timberlake?
“They were both very charismatic, but I think I have to shy away from the question. I don’t want this to bite me in the butt later. They were tight, you know. They’d walk around together all the time, same as me and Britney would. Now look at us. It’s funny how that played out.”

Maxim’s October issue is on newsstands now and Aguilera returns to “The Voice” on Monday, Sept. 23 on NBC.
