Christina Aguilera To Record With Her Idol

Amidst rumors of being dissed on rapper Eminem's upcoming LP, Christina Aguilera has plenty of plans to keep herself busy, including an upcoming recording session with one of her heroes.

The singer will be heading to Los Angeles later this spring to work on a Christmas album, and on May 6, the songstress is scheduled to record with blues belter and Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Etta James, whose "At Last" is a staple of Aguilera's live show.

The holiday album will also see the teen Grammy Award-winner working with a 60-piece orchestra.

Aguilera is currently in Miami with producer Rudy Perez working on her first Spanish language album, which is expected out in the summer.

On April 27 and 28, Aguilera will be in Orlando, Florida to tape a "Disney Summer Jams" special, and the singer will also be appearing at the World Music Awards.

The songstress also plans to begin her first-ever headlining tour on July 31, and she'll be bringing

Destiny's Child along on the outing (see "Aguilera Taps Destiny's Child For Tour"). Full details surrounding the tour will be released on April 27.

And as if that weren't enough, Christina can be seen on VH1's "Men Strike Back," airing Tuesday night at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on VH1.
