Christina Aguilera On Son Max: He Wants Me All To Himself

Christina Aguilera has had a rough year so far – first there was the flubbing of the lyrics to the National Anthem at the Super Bowl, then her onstage fall at the Grammys, then in March came her arrest, along with boyfriend Matt Rutler, for public intoxication. But through it all the singer has had one person in her corner – son Max, 3. And Christina says he doesn’t care a thing about her public life.

“He doesn’t really like to see mommy in work mode quite yet,” the Candyman singer told Parade magazine. “He’s so used to when he sees mommy, I’m in mommy mode, and mommy mode is all about Max. So as he grows up, he’ll understand that side of mommy as a good example of being positive and driven and focused. But for now, he definitely wants mommy all to himself!”

Christina, who has joined NBC’s reality show, The Voice, as a judge, says she’s taking her latest setbacks in stride and using those experiences to mentor young talent on the show. “I can laugh about my own hiccups and my own experiences in life because I’m getting through it,” she says. “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.

“Sometimes 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, seeming to speak from experience. “You have to lose yourself in that moment and you have to be so involved. Take yourself out of your own headspace or use whatever you’re going through and put it into the passion of your song.

“If you make a mistake, you know what? You’re human and you’re going to catch flack for it and that’s just the way it is,” she continues. “The best thing at the end of the day is that you can prove to not only everyone else, but most importantly yourself, that you’re strong enough to get back up on that stage and be fearless enough to try again and know within yourself that it will be better.”

    He will understand mommy needing to work but mommy needing to spend all her time with her boyfriend, instead of alone with her son (like she does) will be harder for him to understand.

      I meant spend all her time with her boyfriend (like she does), instead of alone with her son… case that didn’t make sense.

        Yes, because if there’s one thing that benefits a child, it’s a parent who gives up their entire life for their child and ends up being resentful of the child. Newsflash – a happy parent is a good parent, and that means sometimes taking time away from the child to do things with other adults.

      “knows where she spent Valentine’s Day? with Max in Legoland! she could be with her ​​boyfriend, but was spending time with his son ..”

      Honey that’s what she was supposed to do, you don’t get a pat on the back for spending time with your kid. It’s not like she was doing her son a favor or something, she was doing what she was supposed to be doing.

    Maybe if she stays sober for a day or more she can parent her son better.

    Its called separation angst and given all the changes in his life that occured lately I am not suprised to hear that he is clingging onto her.
