Oh Max! I’m sure he will really appreciate this interview when he gets older.
Christina Aguilera says her son inspired her new album. The ‘Beautiful’ singer – who will release her fourth CD, ‘Bionic’, in March – says her sound has changed dramatically since she became a mother thanks to her 23-month-old son Max. She told Marie Claire magazine:
“I had a really hard time being light before. I’d get a little weird about it being too cliched. My first record was very cliched pop – what everyone else wanted.
“‘Stripped’ was inspired by a lot of pain and ‘Back to Basics’ still had some sort of relation to my past.
“My new one is just about the future – my son in my life, motivating me to want to play and have fun.
“Things that maybe I’ve been afraid to do in the past, to allow myself to go to a place of ‘less singing’. I’m more vulnerable and stronger at the same time.”
Has motherhood affected her creativity?
“As far as motherhood affecting me creatively goes – like, I shouldn’t be wearing that because I’m a mom – it hasn’t. That wouldn’t be fair to me.
“It’s important to keep a strong sense of yourself when you’re a mom. You’re still you.”
Bionic isn’t the only thing on Christina’s plate. The singer is also currently filming ‘Burlesque‘ which hits theatres this November. Looks like this is Christina’s year!
