Christina Aguilera on Why She's

We're going to be seeing, and hearing, a lot of Christina Aguilera in the weeks to come.

The hot mom, who has a new album to promote, Bionic, is going to be doing the promo rounds all over NY, LA and UK.

Xtina made an appearance on Oprah's show today where she talked about her new album, her inspirations, and motherhood. Here are some highlights from the interview:

Christina on Bionic, first release in four years: “I like to take time in between records to just live life for a moment, gather my thoughts and inspirations for what the next record’s going to be.”

On how one of the major inspirations for her new album was giving birth to her son: “As women, our bodies go through such amazing things and we are superhuman. We give life, we give birth, we are our child’s source of everything. Our bodies are not our own for a time period, and we givingly and willingly do so for our child. But then when we get them back, you feel that much stronger. I think it’s pretty superhuman, and that’s where the inspiration for Bionic came from.”

On how she feels sexier now that she’s a mom: “Sure, I have a difference in my body than I had before, but I’m more confident in that knowing where I’ve been and coming full circle with that and feeling more comfortable in my own body. As a woman, you know what you want more, and you know how to get it.”

On becoming a United Nations ambassador for world hunger with the World Food Program: “A child dies every six seconds of hunger, which was a huge statistic for me and one that, after having my own child, I was like, ‘I have to be a part of this, do my part in some way.’”

On her recent trip to Guatemala and her plans to visit Haiti to help with relief efforts: “We just helped deliver food. I visit orphanages and the schools there and try to do my part to help.”
