Christina Aguilera has had a bumpy past several months: She split up from her husband Jordan Bratman, has gone down in recent history as the singer who notably flubbed the National Anthem, took a fall while performing at the Grammys and was arrested for public intoxication.
But through it all, she says she’s keeping a sense of humor.
"In light of the past year, there have been obvious setbacks," Aguilera, who divorced Bratman last year, tells Us Weekly. "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."
The 30-year-old mom added that it’s been "a life-uprooting time and there have been hiccups along the way that unfortunately the whole world gets to witness and judge.”
Aguilera will be doing some judging of her own, however, on NBC’s singing competition series “The Voice,” and has said she plans on using some of these experiences as she coaches the contestants of the show.
"I can laugh about my own hiccups and my own experiences in life because I'm getting through it," Aguilera went on. "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."
“I'm human, too, and people make mistakes and go through things in life,” Aguilera adds. “I'm definitely taking that into the show."
