Christina Aguilera: 2011 Was “Rough Year”

(Marie Claire)

Christina Aguilera is the first to admit she’s gone through a bad patch.

In 2011, the singer infamously botched the national anthem at the Super Bowl, finalized her divorce, got hacked, and was arrested for public intoxication.

“That was a rough year,” she tells Marie Claire for the magazine’s February 2012 cover story.

She adds, “It’s hard for anyone to go through that in public. But when you’re a celebrity and under a microscope, it’s 58 million times harder. I grew an even thicker skin after that hard year.”

Recently, Aguilera has been mocked for her weight.

“I’ve been through the gamut of all things in this business,” she explains. “Being too thin. Being bigger. I’ve been criticized for being on both sides of the scale.”

Her strategy is to tune out the haters.

“It’s noise I block out automatically,” says Aguilera, adding, “I love my body. My boyfriend loooves my body. My son is healthy and happy, so that’s all that matters to me.”

Of course, Aguilera also has a hit show – “The Voice” – about to return.

Here’s hoping 2012 proves to be a happier, healthier year for her.
