Christina Aguilera Opens Up To Redbook

Christina Aguilera may be dealing with a major life change as she divorces her husband, Jordan Bratman, but the show must go on, and her first movie, ‘Burlesque,’ is about to be released. So it sounds like she just decided to be honest when she sat down with Redbook Magazine for an interview.

On having it all:

“Every woman has the ability or the drive to do it all and have it all,” says Christina, who separated from her husband, Jordan Bratman, just two days before REDBOOK’s photos were taken. “Men aren’t as strong and capable as we are. We’re machines.”

On balancing work and motherhood:

“My life is cyclical. First it’s album time, then it’s touring time. I go through phases, so we roll with the punches. I’m not a 9-to-5 woman who has the same kind of lifestyle for years on end. I couldn’t do it. I need the spontaneity, that thrill of change. That’s part of how I get inspired. You know, this is what the cards have in store for Max. We put it into his brain early on that he’s a traveling guy. He adapts well when we go from hotel to hotel.”

Here’s what close friend Nicole Richie had to say about Christina:

“It’s very clear through Christina’s music what a strong woman she is,” Nicole told REDBOOK. “But to watch her as a mother only skyrockets the respect I have for her. She is the woman who’s recording until 4 a.m. and up at 7 to be with her son. Her dedication to Max is incredible.”

Women are machines… I think I’ll be reading this entire interview! It’ll be in the December issue of Redbook, which hits newsstands on November 16.

Video: Christina Aguilera Sings ‘You Lost Me’ Live

Here’s a video of Christina Aguilera singing ‘You Lost Me‘ live. I never heard of the song before and did a little Googling. Seems that quite a few people think this is a confession of some sorts.

Did Christina cheat on her husband Jordan? The other way around? Is this the cause for their divorce? Or are people looking too deeply into things. A song is just a song – right?

What’s your take?

Christina Aguilera “Just Wants To Have Fun”

A lot of people wear t shirts as a means of expression. There’s a HUGE market for one-liners. Here’s Christina Aguilera heading into a medical building while wearing a shirt that says “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”.

Is this her way of warning the press about what’s to come? Once this divorce is finalized are we going to get a peek at the old Christina?

Christina Aguilera Wants Jordan Bratman Out Of The House

Things are awkward between Christina Aguilera and her estranged husband, Jordan Bratman, if TMZ’s story is accurate. TMZ reports that Christina is ready for Jordan to move out of their family home.

It’s hard enough getting a bad tenant out of an apartment. So just imagine Christina Aguilera’s dilemma — her hubby is still living in the family home with no plan to move and it’s really awkward … sources tell TMZ.

But despite the fact they’ve been separated since September 11, neither has moved out of their Bev Hills home. Our sources say it’s so uncomfortable for Christina, she’s been staying in a hotel.

Ouch. I know normally the guy is the one to move, but I’m guessing Christina might be the one with more money… maybe she needs to start shopping for a place while they figure everything out?

UPDATED: Christina Aguilera Visited ER Days Before Split From Husband

Here go the rumors and speculation (since I don’t think anyone had an inkling this split was about to happen). Radar Online reports that Christina Aguilera went to the ER just before she and husband Jordan Bratman split.

Christina was bleeding from her mouth and had a bit of a busted lip,” a source, who saw the couple at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, said. “Jordan told the nurses she had fallen down.”

According to the witness, Aguilera was sporting “bumps and red bruises” along with her bloodied lip. “Shortly after they arrived to Cedars, Christina’s ‘private surgeon’ arrived to put a few stitches in her lip,” the source added.

I do NOT want to believe what this story implies (domestic violence). The pictures here were taken right after the split was announced, and in the picture above there does appear to be some type of cut under her lower lip :(, but that can be from a lot of things.

Do you think there’s any truth to this?

UPDATE: According to TMZ, sources close to Christina say her visit to the ER was not a result of domestic violence and that the injury had nothing to do with her filing for divorce. No official word from Christina’s camp, though.

Christina Aguilera Opens Up To Redbook About Divorce

Christina Aguilera spoke exclusively to REDBOOK, the day after news of her separation from husband Jordan Bratman broke last week.

It’s not easy, and there have been a lot of tears and sadness,” she said.

“It’s impossible to redefine yourself and your life overnight. Thankfully, I have my mom and a small group of close friends who are there for me 24/7 and whom I can trust and depend on. On days when it feels impossible to even get out of bed, much less function as a mother, their support and encouragement have kept me moving forward.

It always helps to have such support. Nice to hear Christina is surrounded by good people.

A Christina Aguilera / Samantha Ronson Romance? Never Happened

Christina Aguilera’s reps have released a statement denying that their client was somehow romantically involved with Samantha Ronson.

“It is a good, longtime friendship and nothing more than that.”

Do you find it interesting that all of these scandalous stories are coming out about Christina days before her ‘Burlesque’ movie releases? PR is PR is PR.
