A pretty woman with a powerful voice, who has managed to conquer the world with her music, but Christina Aguilera’s personal life is far from being as pretty and easy as her songs. If you are a celebrity, you have to face the great pressure by media, and Christina Aguilera decided to bear it all in the June issue of W Magazine, where she talks about her divorce, new relationship and music.
Christina Aguilera was involved in the sphere of music since she was a child, but it wasn’t that easy for her then. Her life was quite difficult and she found her escape route in music, particularly in “The Sound of Music”. “The Sound of Music looked like a form of release. I would open my bedroom window to sing out like Maria. In my own way, I’d be in those hills,” says Christina.
Along the years, Christina won numerous prizes and awards, thus building a brilliant music career, but things in her personal life weren’t as shiny and fabulous as her music. She had to face a divorce, numerous rumors and scandals, which even led her to be arrested.
Everything started still in October 2010, when the singer announced she was getting divorced from her husband of 5 years, music producer Jordan Bratman, with whom she’s got a son, Max. The reason of such a decision was that she didn’t want her son to be brought up in a tension-filled family, just like she did, and when things got worse she decided to end up with a divorce.
“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,” Christina told the magazine.
About her role in the movie “Burlesque”, where she starred with Cher, Christina says she’s very happy, even thought the movie wasn’t a great success. She says:
“I was sad, but I’m still glad that I did the movie,”
“During production, I was going through a lot of self-discovery. As a quote-unquote pop star, you have your entourage with you at all times. When you enter and leave a place, backstage, even at home, you always have your team. On the movie set, I didn’t have anyone around me. And it felt good. When I first met my husband, I needed that helping hand to take the reins and look after me. After the movie, I grew out of being that little girl: I became more of an adult.”
Now Christina is in a relationship with Matt Rutler, who attracted her for his great support in everything and everywhere. He was there, when Christina nearly fell on stage of the Grammy’s and when there were lots of rumors about her alcohol problems, which actually had no foundation to back up.
Things started to change for the better, when she accepted to be a judge at “The Voice” along with Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green.
No wonder, Christina Aguilera still has got a sea of talent to surprise the world and her multioctave voice will go on charming everyone.
