Christina Aguilera shared some "Dirrty" secrets during her Oct. 18 appearance on E!'s "Chelsea Lately."

The "Your Body" singer, 31, agreed to appear on the show if host Chelsea Handler, 37, promised to be pantsless during their interview. "I've heard all about the (vulgar) Chelsea has talked about me not being a fan of wearing pants," Aguilera explained. "So when they asked me to come on I thought, 'I'll do it, if Chelsea does one thing for me....'"

Handler obliged, wearing fishnet stockings and hot pants during their chat. "You look hot," Aguilera told the "Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang" author. "It's a good look for you."

During their sit-down, Aguilera also explained why she prefers to go commando.

"I don't like to wear underwear," the five-time Grammy Award winner said. "I like to be as free as possible at all times. It's just who I am."

"It's empowering," she added. "It's (vulgar) power!"
