Maybe what a girl wants is a little recuperation.
Christina Aguilera is on the mend after accidentally slicing two tendons in her right arm just over a week ago.
But the wound has nothing to do with a drunken fan and a Paris nightclub, as widely reported last week. Instead, says publicist Jill Fritzo, the triple Grammy'd popster cut herself on glass shards in her Los Angeles home.
The former Mouseketeer, 24, sustained the injury while picking up a broken vase knocked over by one of her dogs. There was no immediate word on which of Aguilera's pooches was the perp: her bull mastiff, Koko, or one of her papillons, Chewy and Stinky.
The "Beautiful" songstress will continue sporting a cast and sling for the next few weeks so the injuries can heal properly.
"It is uncomfortable and she has a sling to rest it," Fritzo told the Associated Press. "Her arm is in a cast because of the way it has to heal."
Fritzo says tabloid reports of a nightclub altercation came from a two-year-old story and "had nothing to do with a fan."
The saucy singer was in Paris last week, however, to attend designer Christian Lacroix's Fashion Week couture show.
"He aces in wedding gowns, so I'm looking forward to seeing what he has in store," Britain's Daily Mirror quoted the pint-sized power singer as saying. "It's just a fun trip to see what's out there for the upcoming wedding."
Aguilera got engaged on Feb. 11 to music executive Jordan Bratman, 26. Bratman is a principal member of the Soundproof music agency with Aguilera's manager, Irving Azoff. He and Aguilera have been dating for more than two years. No official wedding date has been set, but the couple is rumored to be planning December nuptials.
The big-voiced pop star is currently in the studio working on her follow-up album to last year's Grammy-winning Stripped with Courtney Love.
"It's very special for me," Aguilera said of her album to MTV earlier this year. "It's a retro blues/jazz/soul record, but a really meaty, gritty, real raw record of soul. So it'll feel good--a feel-good record."
The album is slated for an early 2006 release.
