Christina Aguilera Opened The Floodgates For Curious Twitter Fans And Her Answers Were Honest And Real
Just six weeks after Christina Aguilera released her first album in six years, “Liberation,” she’s opened the floodgates to curious Twitter fans to ask her any question they want. Clearly Latino fans and internet users couldn’t resist answering the call for questions.
Here are all the answers to all the questions you never thought to ask the infamous Xtina.
First things first, Aguilera put her heart and soul into “Liberation.”
She actually started recording the album in late 2014. While Pharrell Williams and Linda Perry were in the studio in the early days, they didn’t end up on the album.
Some fans threw it all the way back.
We wish there was video footage, but sadly the closest thing to live social media at the time would have been a point and shoot digital camera video posted on MySpace.
And @xtina became a human before our very eyes.
If I could not express myself anything less of a hoarse hyena when I sing, it would feel like people could hear the real me.
There were zero product placements to be seen.
It’s a rarity, and Aguilera has shied away from those kinds of collabs. In June 2016, she released the song “Change,” dedicated to the victims of the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting.
She owned the ways that she failed her authentic self in the past and validated her truth today.
Maybe it’s because we’re living in a #MeToo age where women in entertainment (and hopefully, everywhere else) feel more empowered to say no and be heard. She wrote “Fall in Line” years before the #MeToo movement picked up steam.
When asked, she said, “It was the song that needed to be heard. Because of what I witnessed when I was growing up I always felt really driven to have a voice that my mom kind of never had in my childhood. So I’ve always wanted to be that advocate for women and anybody that was struggling to have their own voice.”
She didn’t confirm nor deny a possible world tour.
We have no idea what that means, but she is a master at skirting the real questions. She made this album in her own way and nothing is going to change how she performs it.
Aguilera stood her ground when some fans asked questions she didn’t want to answer.
First, Xtina was polite, but firm. Translation: “Bish, I don’t need to prove sh*t to noone.”
She laid out the new path for her career. All about artistry, less about numbers.
Literally, people only had respect for her. That thread is just a bunch of Meryl Streep gifs applauding her.
Some threw plenty of shade though: “That’s nice and all but we don’t care about numbers or chart positions. We care about seeing our fave artist perform LIVE for us,” @XAHuGo85 wrote. “Not just for private events for Billionaires. You’ve abandoned your last 2 albums and we finally thought this would be different. Guess we were wrong.”
She explained why the album took so long to be released.
Like, yeah, becoming a mother and judging in a reality competition show takes actual time away from your life. The world needed her music to cook for six years in order to get the layered masterpiece that is “María.”
Xtina took a moment to name drop her son, Max, as the future Aguilera to watch.
“Maria” is her personal favorite on the track, which is both a tribute to her middle name and to Julie Andrews’ character in “The Sound of Music.”
She also gave a shoutout to the perks of motherhood: child’s play.
If Christina Aguilera was my mom, life would be cozy af. I was team Aguilera all the way in the Aguilera-Spears showdown of the 2000’s, and it is truly crazy that my teen idol is now a mom idol.
Pop stars like horror? Que horror.
I won’t do horror, but I will do the fact that Xtina’s love for horror is tied to the score. Halloween mash-up coming out soon? Por favor?
Over six years, she wrote a lot of songs that we may never hear.
All we know is that she started writing the album while she was pregnant, so it’s kind of a testament to her motherhood.
There were moments when her Latinidad truly shined.
How can you limit something so deep to only three words? Describing one self is a journey to the truth and a testament to your self-worth.
We do know that a tour is in the works.
The whole world started begging her to come to their corner del mundo to perform. And some fans even got upset that she might not make it there.
Aguilera, while being super open, did stay vague and mysterious.
Hmmm…how long until the fans find the vocal warm up and spam it all over social media?
Some of the questions did bring out a fun side fo the pop star.
“Genie in the Butthole.” #DEAD That was the first song I ever recorded on my boom box karaoke cassette tape. We’re not in Kansas anymore, María.
Her answer left all of her fans shook up af.
Note the fan that immediately changed their handle name to ‘genie in the butthole.’ Mad respect.
Aguilera ended the debate with #Lubrication.
May #Lubrication spread to all corners of the world, to every fan whose begged for some live #Lubrication, and may Christina María Aguilera forever show us how to harness our stardom until we’re all viejos.
