This is very mature of Xtina to say.
"In light of the past year, there have been obvious setbacks. I've gone through a really hard divorce, and anyone who has gone through a divorce will speak about how hard the journey is from start to finish."
"It's a life-uprooting time and there have been hiccups along the way that unfortunately the whole world gets to witness and judge."
"I can laugh about my own hiccups and my own experiences in life because I'm getting through it. But I get to share these experiences with these people and I get to say not every performance day is going to be a great day."
More from Xtina:
"Sometimes you could be having the worst day of your life and you have to get up on that stage and you have to give to your fans in a way that they would never know the difference. You have to lose yourself in that moment and you have to be so involved. Take yourself out of your own headspace or use whatever you're going through and put it into the passion of your song."
And Xtina on her upcoming coaching gig on NBC's The Voice:
"There have been things that have happened on stage that any performer can absolutely relate to and I'm so happy that I get to share these moments with them in such an intimate environment."
"I'm actually revealing a lot about myself during this show — a side of myself that I think a lot of people have never seen before, that only my closest friends see when the cameras go off. I just wanted to approach this show very openly. I'm human, too, and people make mistakes and go through things in life and I'm definitely taking that into the show."
All sounds great, Xtina! Thanks for opening up and sharing with us.
And good luck with The Voice! Very, very exciting!
