We all have our ups and downs, Xtina! Perfectly normal!
During a recent interview, Christina Aguilera opened up about her less-than-fantastic year.
"Sometimes, especially in the last six months, I still feel like going to the window and singing out all my troubles. I laugh a lot lately. People expect me to cry, but I always laugh when things go wrong."
Xtina on her failed marriage with Jordan Bratman:
"At one time or another we were both not angels. It got to a point where our life at home was reminding me of my own childhood. I will not have my son grow up in a tension-filled home. I knew there would be a negative reaction in the press to my divorce, but I am not going to live my life because of something someone might say. That goes against everything I sing on my records. I have to be myself."
Good for you! Here's Xtina on her questionable behavior at Jeremy Renner's 40th b-day:
"At one point I sat on the edge of a bed. It was a guest room. But it only takes one person to start the negativity, and then everyone wants to hop aboard and continue the story."
And here's Xtina on her Super Bowl mess-up:
"I got lost in the emotion of being there and I messed up the lyrics to the song. I went to dinner after the Super Bowl with Matt and I laughed about how I'd made myself into a Trivial Pursuit question: 'In 2011 what female singer flubbed the lyrics to the national anthem?'"
Xtina on her Grammys appearance:
"I know what everyone was saying, and during that Grammy moment, when I nearly collapsed, I was thinking, Are you kidding me? I've always been really good with my heels. Even pregnant, I could perform in heels. Note to self: Never wear a train onstage. My heel got caught in my train, and if it wasn't for Jennifer Hudson, who picked me up as I went down, I would have fallen to the floor. When it happened, it was just like, What else, God?! What else?! I threw my hands up in the air and started smiling, because what else could go wrong?"
Thanks for sharing, Xtina! We've got a feeling things will get better next year!
What do U think about all of this? Is it all uphill from here for Ms. Aguilera?
