This hasn’t been the greatest of months for Christina Aguilera. But now, the singer — who, within one month’s time butchered the National Anthem during the Super Bowl, collapsed onstage at the Grammy Awards, and was arrested for public intoxication — says she’s ready to turn things around.
“In light of the past year, there have been obvious setbacks,” she told UsMagazine.com. “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,” said the 30 year old pop star.
Christina went on to say that her recent slip-ups have been a blessing in disguise.
“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,” she continued. “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.”
Aguilera said she plans to use her recent experiences to mentor contestants on NBC’s “The Voice,” where she’ll coach aspiring singers alongside Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green.
“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,” she explained.
“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,” Aguilera said. “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.”
Good for you, Ms. Aguilera. Good for you.
