Is Christina Aguilera's 'Lotus' the Hottest Nude Album Cover Ever? (PHOTOS)

christina aguileraSo Christina Aguilera is naked on the cover of her new album, "Lotus," and everybody's all, Omg, Christina Aguilera is naked on the cover of her new album, "Lotus!" Except I'm not really sure why, because she's usually at least half-naked on the covers of her albums and/or in her videos. Why all the fuss this time? (Is it because of that whole thing with the faked "fat girl" quotes, maybe?)

I don't know. But at least we know one thing for sure -- musicians sure do like stripping down for album covers. Hey, sex sells: "Look at me! I'm naked! Buy my album!" Aguilera is hardly the first to employ this marketing tactic, and she won't be the last -- but is she the best? Let's take a look at some other nudie-pants pop stars and find out!

Which of these gets your vote for the hottest album cover?
