Christina Aguilera Goes for the Way-Hot “Terminator Sexy” Look on Her New Album Cover

Half woman, half machine, all sexy—that’s Christina Aguilera on the over of Bionic, the “Genie in a Bottle” singer’s fourth studio album. And we have to say, it’s a lot more eye-pleasing than some of the album art we’ve seen lately.

Guess she’s abandoned the whole retro Back to Basics thing, huh? Yup, she sure is—and the former Mouseketeer notes on her official Web site that the cover provides a pretty good indication of what to expect from the music when Bionic drops this summer:

“I was able to explore and create a fresh, sexy feel using both electronic and organic elements with subject matter ranging from playful to introspective. I am so excited for my fans to hear the new sound. It is something I don’t think anyone will expect.”

Nice to see her branching out and delivering some musical surprises. We just hope that her two-year-old son, Max Liron Bratman, isn’t traumatized when he sees the artwork for mommy’s latest masterpiece.
