You know, we have to give her a lot of credit for being able to take this one in stride! It couldn't have been easy!

Christina Aguilera will be appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today to promote her new show, The Voice, and during the interview, the singer opened up about the now-infamous Super Bowl National Anthem lyric flub, and is remarkably clear-headed about the incident!

She explains:

"I had been singing that song my entire life. I was the youngest anthem singer in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. I sang for The Steelers as a child. I think 7 or 8 years old. I would sing for them. I think had a moment where I was at the Super Bowl at 30 years old. I took in the moment a little bit too much. Shoot me for appreciating the moment but here I am at the Super Bowl…singing for a team and in front of the world. And remembering what it was like to be that young and look where I made it now. And then it was like, oh. That night I knew, I just made myself a Trivial Pursuit question…In 2011 what female singer, ya know, flubbed the lyrics. It's just insane. But I have a really good laugh about it and you get over things. You get back up again and you just prove to yourself and to everyone you that much stronger."

That's the spirit, gurl!

We're sure it was mortifying at the time, but we can't blame you for getting caught up in the moment and losing your train of thought!

And look! You've already come leaps and bounds since then, and are a part of what looks to be an AMAZING TV Show!

Keep that focus on the positive!

    i would be more embarassed about that whore hair than mesing up at the super bowl. at lest htats an honest mistake



  2. 2

    Nope… I'm pretty sure it's still unacceptable



  3. 3

    Translation: I was drunk off my ass.



  4. 4

    That was brave of her. All the fuss about Gaga imitating Madonna reminds me of when everyone was saying Aguilera was trying to imitate Britney. But she has stood firm in her own right as an artist. Gaga will too.



  5. 5

    I love her :)



  6. 6

    I knew that Christina would pick her self up and use this as motivation for something epic!! Her next albullm will be amazing!!!



  7. 7

    get over yourself people at least she sang live unlike some singers. and she isn't the first to mess it up and she won't be the last either



  8. 8

    Messing up the lyrics is forgivable. Turning the national anthem into a showcase for her vocal acrobatics is not. I love Christina's voice, but I wish she would have sung the song as it was written.



  9. 9

    She's so cool, I love her!



  10. 10

    My god , shes HUGE!!! looks like a she male with all that makeup

    Re: Crabbey – Don't hold your breath.. gaga already cried and cracked over the imitating Madonna thing… you didn't see Christina getting all wimpy and woe is me on everyone…. She just kept doing her and didn't sit around thinking up fake gimmicks and stupid freak show acts in order to prove how different she was.



  12. 12

    Funny u commend her for focusing on the positive when u were one of the people punking her out and making fun



  13. 13

    Christina is a Diva,unlike Gaga,who will never be… she has a status of a true female celeb and nothing can take it from her,even low-selling album (which is amazing,by the way) and lyric messes…..true star

    People need to get over it. It was only one line that she repeated. The rest of it, she sang beautifully. I have to give her props for keep going on. If it were somebody else, they would stop dead in their tracks. Also, she sang live. Whitney, Beyonce and Jennfer Hudson all lipsynched. She did a great job at the NBA semi final and was asked by the lakers to come back for the final becuse they thought she was their goodluck charm. The girl is atleast admitting her mistake unlike others who think their shit dont stink!!

    GaGa > Xtina

    Re: MVPnis – If you see her as huge then you have a really messed up view of womens bodies



  17. 17

    Re: Crabbey – Yeah except Christina became an artist in her own right cause of her amazing voice, not for being a freak like your caca



  18. 18

    SHE LOOKS FUCKING HOT SEXY MAMA !! I LOVE XTINA I CANT WAIT FOR HER UP COMING ALBUM:) AND TONIGTH IM READY FOR THE VOICE!!! FUCK YES :)

    Re: starstrukk47 – No, she became a star becasue Disney saw an effed up and mildly talented kid whose parents were willing to exploit her for cash.



  20. 20

    oh perez STFU! your so fake



  21. 21

    Re: PrincessSilverThong – Shut the fuck up, lame bitch!



  22. 22

    Re: PrincessSilverThong – MILDLY TALENTED? hahahahaha you're retarded! she's got a 4 octave singing ability (even LIVE!), is an amazing performer, and writes and produces her own music! she has more talent in her throat than most people have in their whole bodies. i don't care if someone hates her or her music, but nothing pisses me off more than when people say she's not talented…she is. best voice of her generation! without question.



  23. 23

    its really not a big deal at ALL. it doesnt matter at all what she is saying with that voice..



  24. 24

    drunkard



  25. 25

    People made way too much about that. It was a slip-up… no big deal. She sounded good. Why do some people have to make such a big deal over little things…. they just made her feel worse and she shouldn't have felt bad at all.

    CLMspartan says – reply to this

    2Nope… I'm pretty sure it's still unacceptable

    ^ Twat!! Get over yourself! Its a freaking song! Its people like YOU that are harming this country.

    Re: chunkeh
    I agree. She is not huge. And we wonder why our teenage girls starve themselves. Xtina looks fine.



  28. 28

    So what? Half of you people commenting that say that it's unacceptable probably don't know the lyrics at all.

    I used to think she was a negative bitch but I like her now after seeing her on The Voice. I'm glad she's on that show, she makes it for me. She actually seems much nicer and happier than I thought.
