Bionic is Christina's 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," she says.

Christina says 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," she says. "I think it's pretty superhuman, and that's where the inspiration for Bionic came from."

Christina says she also 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," she says. "As a woman, you know what you want more, and you know how to get it."
