Christina Aguilera isn't taking the criticism that she's spending too little time in the nursery with baby Max Liron Bratman and too much in the club lying down. The new mom is lashing out at those casting judgment when they see her steppin' out: "I spend all day with my son and once in a while if I want to go out and have a mommy-daddy night with my husband [Jordan Bratman], I am more than allowed to do that," Christina tells Access Hollywood.
"They never air [footage] of the paparazzi actually pulling up beside my husband and being like, 'When is she going to leave the house? I have been trying to get a picture of her for weeks,'" she adds. "Everybody has an opinion and everybody sometimes wants to cause drama and be mean spirited, but it’s something that comes with what you do and I learned that very early on."
We can't say we blame Xtina for wanting to get out once in a while and show off her amazing new body—considering how hard she worked to get it. "It’s all mental,” Christina says of how she keeps up her greuling workout routine. "I am not someone that likes to work out. I would love to just relax or do something else you but I do because I feel good afterwards. It makes me feel good to see muscle definition and to just feel better health wise."
Christina stresses that discipline and dedication are the only ways to achieve results. "I went through a whole course of weight training and cardio and boxing and things like that but it is also your food and making sure that you eat pretty clean throughout."
If we worked as hard as Christina we'd want to reap the rewards too. So do your thing, girl, and the next round of drinks is on us!
