    The season premiere of ‘The Voice’ will occur on February 5th and NBC has kicked promotional efforts into high gear. In addition to her recent appearance on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, coach Christina Aguilera scored a feature in the March issue of Latina magazine.

    In this special edition of Latina, Aguilera flaunted her glamourous persona for the camera before addressing some serious personal issues. Watch behind the scenes footage of her photoshoot and read excerpts from her interview below:

    On getting married and divorced at a young age: “Was I too young? Not at all. I did the exact right thing at the time….I definitely wasn’t too young. I have always been older than my age.”

    On growing older: “I was on the set of a film and the choreographer was 19 and I looked around at all the dancers and I was like, ‘Whoa! I’m the oldest person in this room. When did that happen?’”

    On reconnecting with her father:  “I’ve talked about how rough things were for me and I’m sure he’s heard it. He can’t be thrilled about it. So maybe one day we can do lunch…I’m 31 years old now. Maybe it’s time.”

    On resting up from the intensity of shooting The Voice:  “When I’m shooting The Voice, it’s intense. On a day like today, my ex has my son and we are not shooting, so I slept and I just slept. I love doing everything in my bed.  Eating, sleeping…It’s my domain and my throne…I do it all in my bed.”

    On how she handles gossip and brutal reviews:  “I don’t read them. Ever…Why read what people are saying—good or bad?”

    On criticisms of not being Latina enough:  “I’ve dealt with that my whole life. I don’t speak the language fluently. And I’m split right down the middle, half Irish and half Ecuadorean. I should not have to prove my ethnicity to anyone. I know who I am.”

    On planning another Spanish-language album: “All I know is no one can tell me I’m not a proud Latina woman…I dove headfirst into a Spanish-language album for that reason and I’m planning another one even though I don’t speak the language. I’m sure that doesn’t sit well with some people.”

      Hell, if Beyonce, who is not Latina in any sense of the word, can make a Spanish speaking album, why do people feel the need to give Christina such a hard time? I have never understood that bullshit! Anyway, I love Ms. Aguilera and I support anything, and everything that she does! <3

      Xtina looks so beautiful!!!

      As far as non Latino(a) people making Spanish speaking albums I see nothing wrong with it. It’s all about connecting with everyone! These artists have fans in Spanish speaking countries that can’t even speak English so why not do something for them?

      As far as Christina , I think people have a problem with it because she is Latina and identifies herself as Latina and doesn’t speak Spanish which I find ridiculous. I have a Cuban friend born to TWO Cuban parents and can’t speak Spanish but people don’t look down on her for that. I truly feel that Christina’s fans in those Spanish speaking countries care more about her making an album for them than her not speaking the language

      People will give this woman a hard time for anything. It just comes with the business. One of the reasons I admire her is because she’s so headstrong and confident. Nothing can phase her.

      And the bit about her father.. http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lxze3139Bl1qdlkgg.gif
