Christina Aguilera Talks About Abusive Childhood

Christina Aguilera Talks About Abusive Childhood

Christina Aguilera opens up about her abusive childhood in a new documentary.

The Beautiful singer, who is mom to 20-month-old son Max Liron, reveals that she turned to music to escape the fear she felt growing up with an abusive father.

“I witnessed a lot of unpleasant things – a lot of pushing and shoving and fighting and quarrelling,” she tells E!. “Growing up I did not feel safe. Feeling powerless is the worst feeling in the world. I turned to singing as an outlet. The pain at home is where my love for music came from.”

This isn’t the first time Christina has talked about her difficult childhood – it’s even been the subject of songs such as I’m OK and Oh Mother.

The Grammy-winner has said in the past, “It’s therapeutic for me to talk about it. It gives me a reason to understand why I went through what I did.”

Christina’s mom Shelley also describes a horrifying incident when she returned home to find Christina, then 4, with blood on her face.

“I scooped her up and said, ‘Oh my God. What’s wrong?’ She told me, ‘Daddy wanted to take a nap and I made too much noise.'”

It brings tears to my eyes to think of any child going through something so awful. Kudos to Christina for speaking up about it.

    Maggie Gyllenhaal & Ramona Go Hand In Hand

    She’s such a big girl now! Maggie Gyllenhaal was spotted strolling hand in hand with her daughter Ramona Sarsgaard, who turns 3 next month, in Brooklyn on Friday (Sept. 18).

    The 31-year-old Dark Knight star recently shared her struggles with working outside of the home:

    Now that I have my own daughter, there are definitely times I think, Why do I have a job? Sometimes I fantasize about staying home with Ramona all day, so that I don’t miss a thing in this amazing 2-year-old’s life.”

    Rob Lowe & Sons At The Emmys

    Rob Lowe & Sons At The Emmys

    Actor Rob Lowe and his sons Edward Matthew, 16, and John Owen, 14, were looking dapper on the red carpet at last night’s Emmy awards in LA. What a handsome bunch!

    Rob told USA Today it was their first trip to the awards show, saying, “We’ve never been to Emmys. Duiring The West Wing era, they were too young to come. This is boys’ night out, and after the show we’re going to Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles. That’s a tradition.”

    During his acceptance speech, award-winner Alec Baldwin joked of the 45-year-old Brothers & Sisters star, who was a presenter, “I’d trade this to look like him.”
