Christina Aguilera addresses the rumors about whether she and/or her now ex-husband strayed during the marriage – sort of.
“At one time or another, we were both not angels," the singer told W. " It got to a point where my life at home was reminding me of my own childhood. I will not have my son grow up in a tension-filled home...”
"The Voice" coach has a spread in the new issue of W where she she says she has never watched an entire episode of the show's major competitor "American Idol" because "it's too mean."
"Why would anyone want to go on a show to be ripped apart," Aguilera said. "I don’t want to be tough with my singers, but I do want to tell them on 'The Voice' that if you really want this, you’ll be kicked when you’re down."
The hit NBC show has proved to be lucrative for the singer/actress. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Aguilera is paid more than $250,000 per episode to appear on "The Voice."
Perhaps such a hefty payday helps the star encourage her team of singers to aspire to win. Aguilera said competing on the show takes dedication.
"You have to be willing to roll with those punches," she said. "You have to really want it.”
