Christina Aguilera graces the March 2012 cover of Latina and opens up about getting married young and growing older, her estranged relationship with her father, and raising her 4-year-old son Max with ex-husband Jordan Bratman.
On getting married and divorced young: “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 co-parenting with ex-husband: “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 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 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.”
