Singer says she had 'to be myself'

Christina Aguilera has admitted to infidelities in her marriage to Jordan Bratman.

The two separated in 2010 and were married in 2005.

Speaking to W Magazine the singer, when asked about her infidelity said: “At one time or another, we were both not angels.”

The singer also described the end of the union. She said: “It got to a point where our life at home was reminding me of my own childhood. I will not have my son grow up in a tension-filled home.”

“I knew there would be a negative reaction in the press to my divorce, but I am not going to live my life because of something someone might say. That goes against everything I sing [about] on my records. I have to be myself.”

Aguilera also defended her drunken arrest in March, by saying: “The police knew my recent history and wanted to jump on the bandwagon. I don’t mean to martyr myself, but I think I was a victim of celebrity.”

“I don’t drive, I wasn’t driving, and I committed no crimes, but they put me in jail. They called me a ‘political hot potato’. They said, ‘What are we going to do with this woman?’ I think they were bored that night.”
