As an adult, she is entitled to make her own decisions and do as she pleases. I know that the "role model" scenario played over in your mind when your 2-year-old asked you about that Rolling Stone cover, but Christina appearing on the cover nude does not make her a skank. It sells magazines. Maybe she, like the rest of the world, has grown out of her Mouseketeer phase and become something a bit more mature?

What Christina Aguilera wants is to talk about: her new all-Spanish album Mi Reflejo, the holiday disc My Kind of Christmas, due out next month, and her tour, which arrives at the E-Centre tonight, with hip-hop/R&B trio Destiny's Child opening. And she's only got 10 minutes. But never fear.
