Christina Aguilera On How “The Sound Of Music” Inspired Her To Sing

“I felt caged by my childhood. And unsafe: Bad things happened in my home; there was violence. ‘The Sound of Music’ looked like a form of release. I watched [Maria] twirl around those mountains, and she was just so free … I would open my bedroom window to sing out like Maria. In my own way, I’d be in those hills.”

Christina Aguilera talks to W Magazine about the rollercoaster ride of the past year (a divorce, a new boyfriend, “Burlesque,” “The Voice”) and also gives us a peek into what made her want to sing in the first place. Somehow, I can just see little Christina belting out, “The hilllllllllls are aliiiiiive…” [W Magazine]

After the jump, Christina on how she came to laugh about the infamous Super Bowl flub.

“Everything on the field at the Super Bowl was vividly bright, and I was having a moment. I got lost in the emotion of being there and I messed up the lyrics to the song. I knew the press would glom onto it. I went to dinner after the Super Bowl with Matt and I laughed about how I’d made myself into a Trivial ­Pursuit question: ‘In 2011 what female singer flubbed the lyrics to the national anthem?’” 

Ha. Love that. And I bet she could also score a few Scrabble points with the word “glom.”
