Christina talks to Glamour
In the next issue of GLAMOUR magazine Christina Aguilera talks on her tough childhood, being mother and keeping up sex life in ‘Without All The Drama’ interview.
GLAMOUR: Despite your tough childhood, you grew up into a solid person. What do you think when you see people in your industry, like Amy Winehouse, self-destruct?
I’m not a judgmental person, so I can’t comment on someone else’s background. [As for me], I think I’ve always had a strong sense of self. My mom brought me up to believe that my talent is a gift and a blessing. But I have definitely made some mistakes that I would never do again.”
GLAMOUR: Like what?
CA: When I was 21 and made Stripped, I was pretty distraught about some personal issues coming up from my past. I was going out and partying a lot–as people do at that age–and did some very unhealthy things to deal with the pain. But I was able to say, “OK, hold on.”
GLAMOUR: But for some reason, you weren’t caught on camera doing it.
CA: Thank God! [Laughs.]
GLAMOUR: You probably couldn’t have gotten away with that now.
CA: I don’t think so. [It wasn't until] the wave of reality TV that [our culture's] obsession with celebrity got so crazy. I think a lot of people thrive on that stuff.
GLAMOUR: So how do you manage nowadays to avoid paparazzi?
CA: A lot of people go out of their way [to be photographed]; I make a conscious effort to keep me and my family out of the limelight. The other day a paparazzo actually pulled up to my husband on the street and said, “Geez, I know the new house is big, but I’ve been trying to get a picture of you for months–you never leave the house!” And it’s true: I’ll go out at night after spending time with my son, but [during the day] I just hang out on my grounds, taking him for walks in the stroller in the backyard where we won’t be seen.
GLAMOUR: Has having a child changed your relationship with your own mother?
CA: It’s given me a deeper understanding of the things she went through. She had a difficult childhood, and I think she wanted to make sure [I didn't go through that]–[yet] she ended up marrying an abuser. My mom was so giving, almost too much, that she almost forgot about herself many times. So I’m careful to make time for myself. Rather than change who I am for Max, I bring the life lessons I’ve learned to the table.
GLAMOUR: How has your relationship with Jordan changed since the baby?
CA: It’s brought us closer–we’re bonded together for life. Relationships and great marriages are a whole learning and growing process. We’re just great teammates.
GLAMOUR: So, how do you guys keep things sexy these days?
CA: We make sure we have Mommy and Daddy nights out. Our child comes first, obviously, but there are certain things you can do: Once we know he’s in good hands, we go out late at night and have a few drinks. Then we’ll come home, dim the lights and do our thing–and I’m not going into any more detail than that!
