Sexiness should be effortless.” Credit: Mark Liddell The Burlesque star, currently dating Matthew Rutler, also shares with Maxim her thoughts on men. Asked if a guy needs to be able to sing to turn her on, she replies, “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.” PHOTOS: Christina’s sexiest music video looks Rutler and son Max are of course the top two boys in Aguilera’s life right now, but she’s known her fair share of heartthrobs in the past.

When asked by a viewer to share her opinion of the “Your Body” singer, 32, Gaga only had nice things to say. “I’m a very big fan of Christina Aguilera,” she said. “From the very beginning of when my career started there was all this controversy about the two of us, and I always felt that it was very unfair to her.” PHOTOS: Lady Gaga’s craziest VMAs looks “The controversy was that people said that she released an album that was kind of chasing your sound,” Cohen said. “Is that what it was?” “All I know was that people were talking about Christina Aguilera and Lady Gaga in the same sentence . . . and I was nobody,” Gaga explained of her status in the industry five years ago. “I just think it’s very unfair of anyone to pit another woman against another woman especially in the space of music when we are all just trying to be taken seriously at all . . . as females because we’re not taken seriously as real musicians. And Christina is an incredible vocalist and an incredible artist.
