Five minutes with Xtina: Christina Aguilera takes a look back at a decade on top

Target_christinashoot2 To say that Christina Aguilera has had a remarkable career is an understatement.  The chart-topping songstress is now a bona-fide brand and arguably the heir to Mariah Carey's R&B throne.

While fans eagerly await a new record -- tipped as "futuristic" and perhaps marking a return to dance-floor bangers such as "Dirrty" -- Xtina today (Nov. 11) releases a greatest-hits collection, "Keeps Gettin' Better: A Decade of Hits," exclusively through Target and the retailer's website.

Pop & Hiss had a five minute chat via phone with the "Beautiful" singer late last week, when she shared a few thoughts on the last decade.  Suffice it to say, this new mother is not looking back in anger.

How does it feel to release a greatest-hits package already?  You’ve had such a remarkable career, yet it doesn’t feel like you’ve been here a decade.

I feel so fortunate. I can’t believe it’s been a decade already.  It’s not that new to me to revisit my catalog because on tour I do reinvent old hits of mine and sort of give them a new life.  But hearing the original versions in their radio form, was a trip down memory lane for me. It’s kind of crazy!

Is there
