Christina Aguilera Calls Her Divorce And Arrest A Series Of “Hiccups”

|

In an interview with Us Magazine, Christina Aguilera has acknowledged that she’s going through a very trying time this year. The singer explained, “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.”

While it’s certainly tough to live life in the public eye while going through a divorce and rumors of a drinking problem, Aguilera says “I can laugh about my own hiccups and my own experiences in life because I’m getting through it.” Being a performer makes it more complicated, because “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 says. She plans to channel her own experiences as she advises contestants on the upcoming singing competition, The Voice. She wants the world and the aspiring singers on the show to know that she’s “human, too” and that “people make mistakes and go through things in life and I’m definitely taking that into the show.”
