Christina Aguilera has explained her decision to to appear naked on the cover of her new album Lotus.

Asked by Billboard if she felt the decision was a risk, she responded: "Have I ever been scared to take risks?"

She added: "I'm very comfortable with my body. I've always said, 'No matter what hairstyle, crazy look, make-up, I've always done [the] exciting thing'.
"Whether people love it or hate it, at least I know I was staying true to myself."
On the music itself, she continued: "There are some songs that I vocally went for, being inspired off of being a coach from The Voice, to inspire the new generation of singers.
"There's a bunch of 6-year-olds that weren't around [for my first hit single] 'Genie in a Bottle', so it's very interesting and fun for me to release this particular record, let them know what I'm about as an artist."
Lotus is out next month.
