Christina Aguilera goes from Xtina to X-treme

Burlesque star Christina Aguilera has tweeted a teaser pic from the photoshoot of her forthcoming album.

The photo suggests that a real change of direction is on the cards for the blonde bombshell after her lowest performing album to date, Bionic, was released in 2010.

Aguilera has remained tight-lipped about the project, despite her high-profile appearances on US talent show The Voice.

Gone is her signature blonde look, which even survived the extreme Moulin Rouge music video stylists, to be replaced with a head of pink curls – more akin to her Lady Marmalade co-star P!nk, or rapper Nicki Minaj who appeared on her 2010 single Woohoo.

Fans of the 31-year-old singer will be pleased to see that her heavy eye make-up looks set to remain though.

The star famously did away with her blonde look once before while on tour promoting her second studio album, Stripped, in 2003, when she opted for long jet-black hair.

The Dirrty singer has long hinted at her appreciation of the female form, and her open approach to sexuality.

Aguilera, who propelled to fame on the Mickey Mouse Club in the 1990s alongside Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, confirmed in Rolling Stone magazine earlier this year that the first single on her new record would be called ‘Your Body’, and is expected for release later this month.
