Christina Aguilera: Neither of us were 'angels'

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.”

    P.s. Not all mormons are bad in fact most of my family is mormon however the goverment and business' here are controlled mainly by mormons who do shelter themselves and try to shelter the entire state... someone earlier wrote that 'god was stopping the spread of mormonism' in fact morminism is getting bigger by the day they spread their message throughout the world and have more missionaries than most other religions. their jaded views are their own plus those who keep the whole poligamyst thing running in this blog dont seem to realize that plural marriage has been throughout the world and goes back into ancient times not just the fundamentalist mormons... in fact certain muslims have multiple wives in todays age why no ranting on them? i dont know why one would want that many women nagging at them but whatever floats your boat

    Im 20 so it has nothing to do with being old because i strongly believe the media should be WAY more cencered. its sad when you can watch almost any movie, show, or look at any magazine without seeing a half naked or more woman. i may just be old school but what happened to the good ol days when people had respect for themselves, others, and our children. its very concerning to think of the kind of things that will be out there when my son grows up.

    For the mormon comment- I was raised mormon (although I am not practicing anymore) and there is nothing in The Voice that would be considered inappropriate by the church beyond random flirty comments.
    This is probably one of the best new shows out there. The people are actually very talented and the format really gives them a chance to learn from their mentors. Not that what she makes is really any of our business...but if Christina can make that much per episode...good for her. If I had a chance to do the same thing, I would.

    Christina doesn't engage. Try all she may, she just isn't really into people. She should hang it up on this bore of a show, find a new producer and get to making "qaulity" music – and I don't mean more depressing ballad crap. She also needs to ditch the 1930-40's hairstyle and makeup and get back to the natural, pastelish look. She looks cheap and cold, and that is not a good thing when you're cold towards people to begin with.

    I'm not hating. I'm telling the truth and I used to be a huge fan of her "quality" music.

    Two things never cease to amaze me. One how this article wasnt about politics Mitt Romney or mormons and yet that is what 65 per cent of you baffoons discussed and this happens rather regularly on these blogs. Stay on topic people!!!. The other 35 per cent complained and said derogatory things about Christina.
    It never ceases to amaze when a white!!! girl is doing well and making lots of money everybody whines and bi""" that they suck or they are talentless SK"ks ie Kim K, Lady Gaga, Lilo shall I go on!!!!
    I never hear one derogatory word about black woman who do some of the same things, no one ever calls them out of their name or says they are talentless SK"KS all the time whats wrong with you people are ya scarred!!!
    So unless these are all black people making these complaints (if thats the case they are displaying racism) then you white people are just disgraceful chewing up your own again. Totally shameful get a life!!! and stop this constant complaining and degrading your own kind all the time

You are the reason why God is stifling your Mormon church growth. Ignorance is no excuse for your racism and offensive views. I think we need to put all ignorant people like you in a place worse than Australia when the British left the worst of their criminals there. Australia even as it was at that time is too good for ignorant people like you. The tea party sucks! People like you survived on the sweat of slaves in the past and only long for that era because you're illiterate, ignorant and no better than the Nazis. Please don't post comments on CNN, I don't want the world to realise how many ignorant people are in the US.

A lot easier and nicer if we just act respectfully and kindly towards each other. I also do not believe everyone who lives in Utah is a mormon and while I do not agree with Mormon beliefs and practices I thinks its a shame to attack like that

    Somehow these comments are taking on a life of their own. Unless I misunderstood the article, it was about how much Christina makes per episode. Cora LDS, if they don't show the Voice in Utah, then how do you know it's trash? It's much better then American Idol. The contestants on The Voice are chosen for how they sing and not how they look. That would be why the judges have their backs turned toward the contestants. Some of the contestants have incredible voices. The judges are all singers who want to help the contestants further their careers. What is so wrong about that? If you don't like Christina that's fine but why you're bringing Mitt Romney into this is beyond me. Is it the fact that he's a Mormon that is running for president. If so I don't see what that has to do with this show. To each their own.

      key words there are "supposed to"...let's be real, there is no seperation nor can there be. People's religions shape their beliefs/morals and they in turn elect people with the same or similair beliefs/morals. Granted this is not a one size fits all kind of description, for example my mother is catholic and supports the right to choose and marriage equality, but in general it's how it works.

This is just someone trying to poke fun at the LDS faith and bring out all of the bigots. By the look at the resposnes, it worked just like she wanted it to.

      Mormon beliefs are DUMB. If you ever actually sit down and rationally think about their belief system, you can come to know other conclusion than mass delusion. Mormons take the ridiculousness of Christian belief and add a whole other lever of crazy. No respect should be given.

    Hey! CORA LDS!

    1) "Morals" cannot be legislated.

    2) You hold a funny view of "morals" coming from a religion that encourages its MEN to see themselves as literal GODS, take many wives, often underage, commit pedophilia with them in the name of your "God" and reproduce wildly to the extent public resources are strained. So, CORA LDS, lots of us think YOUR "MORALS" SUCK!

    • Donna

      TO JehseaLynn: Your remarks goes to prove just how ignorant people tend to be about the Mormon religion in today's world. FYI, the only reason the more than 1 wife situation was started in the first place was because back in the 1800's or earlier, many of the men were killed for their beliefs, again ignorance abounded even in those days, and since there were no jobs back then for women to support themselves or their families, the surviving men married more than one in order to give support and help raise their children without having any out of wedlock, etc and so forth. Now, today, it isn't practiced anymore with the exception of those few who still believe in continuing that particular practice of the faith for whatever reason and they are excommunicated from the church. I would suggest that you learn your FACTS before making such ignorant remarks and making yourself look like an idiot.

      to me Christians are hypocrites ? They sin time and time, over and over, and believe one "forgive me" excuses their behavior and the slate is wiped clean, and they start all over again. Ever notice that Christians shake their head side to side over non believers, but non believers never demonstrate that ignorance. Christians make the Bible out to be their crutch as they do with their beliefs. I honestly don;t know one Christian that lives by the Bible, they pick and chose, and have an opinion on everything, self rightous hypocrites.
