Xtina Speaks! Opens Up About Personal Life And New Gig On The Voice

christina aguilera opens up

This is very mature of Xtina to say.

During a recent interview, Christina Aguilera opened up about her personal life, and explained that she can have a sense of humor about it:

"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!

Ted "Golden Voice" Williams Talks Rehab & Relapse

Filed under: DrugsRehabHealthAlcoholAddiction

ted williams relapsed before rehab

Looks like Ted Williams, the former homeless man with the golden voice, ran into some trouble before checking into rehab.

While speaking with Dr. Phil, Williams admitted to having had a relapse a few days before getting the help he needs.

Here's what Ted had to say about it:

"I wasn't staggering around in the hallways or anything or behaving badly. I was a little tipsy, a celebratory tipsy. I know that doesn't make sense but you're probably waiting for me to say, 'Yes, Dr. Phil, I got drunk. I was very composed."

When asked if he did drugs, Ted had the following to say:

"Yes sir. I did a little bit of pot."

And then when Dr. Phil asked if he did anything other than alcohol and pot, Ted simply said:

"Yes sir."

After everything that Ted's been through, we're not shocked that he would experience some setbacks on his road to recovery.

Let's just hope he takes his time in rehab seriously and commits himself to getting better.

He's got so much potential, and he's come SO far. We'd hate to see it go to waste!
