Christina Aguilera - Christina Aguilera shuns commercial success

Christina Aguilera is not worried about 'Lotus' being commercially successful.

The 31-year-old singer - whose last studio album 'Bionic' flopped - doesn't care if the general public don't buy her seventh record as she finds it more important to take risks and push herself creatively.

She told MTV News: ''I've already put out a greatest hits record, so I've been in this business for a while, and I'm a risk taker, that's just who I am at heart. It's who I can't help but be. It's who I always am in nature, as a person and as an artist.

''With that comes hurdles and certain areas where people aren't going to get it and understand it artistically; sometimes it will go over their heads and it will not be as commercially successful.''

The 'Candyman' singer reinvented herself as a mentor on TV show 'The Voice' in 2011, and hopes 'Lotus' will appeal to new fans who have been introduced to her music through that, as well as to those who have followed her since her self-titled 1999 debut album.

She added: ''I wanted to make a record that speaks to those fans who grew up listening to my music and yet reintroduce new fans, watching me on 'The Voice' at six years old who don't know about my first record. This is a really exciting time to show them both sides.

''Personally, I'm someone that's always growing and evolving. I feel that I've reached a place where I'm completely embracing everything about who I am, and I have more of an understanding of myself.''

'Lotus' is released in November.
