  • Drew Barrymore says her daughter brings up her "Playboy" cover whenever she's told she can't wear a crop top.

  • Barrymore discussed the challenges of motherhood on "The Drew Barrymore Show" with guest Christina Aguilera.

  • "I knew it was coming the day I wore chaps," Aguilera said of her own experience with her daughter's clothing choices.

It's not easy being a mother — especially if you have a past like Drew Barrymore.

On Tuesday's episode of "The Drew Barrymore Show," Barrymore and her guest star Christina Aguilera discussed the challenges of raising daughters.

"My daughter wants to wear a crop top, I'll say, 'No,' and she'll go, 'You were on the cover of 'Playboy,'" Barrymore told Aguilera. She posed for the magazine when she was 19, in January 1995.

Barrymore has two daughters with her ex Will Kopelman: Olive, 11, and Frankie, 9.

Upon hearing what Barrymore said, Aguilera shared that she had a similar experience with her own daughter, Summer Rain, 9.

"I knew it was coming the day I wore chaps," Aguilera said. "My daughter wants to wear a crop top too. And I'm just like, 'Can we just pull it down?' I see myself doing that."

But instead of instilling fear, the "Dirrty" singer says she wants her daughter to know that different people can have different intentions.

Aguilera added that what matters most is that her daughter learns to be true to herself as she grows older.

"I think it's important for her to have a strong sense of self, but also to be very empowered with her body, and eventually it'll be her sexuality," Aguilera said. "So I want her to just really know herself first."

Looking back at her own past, Aguilera said all the choices she made back then had always been for herself, and not anyone else.

"Even when you take it back to chaps, or even 'Playboy,' we were expressing ourselves and how we felt was best for us, I think, at that time," Aguilera said. "It's empowering being a female and embracing your body, and everything that makes you feel good or womanly. However, that is for yourself to be able to embrace that."

Representatives for Barrymore and Aguilera did not immediately respond to requests for comment sent outside regular business hours.
