Christina Aguilera Says Son Keeps Her Focused

Christina Aguilera made her first public television appearance since her divorce from husband Jordan Bratman, making the rounds on Ellen and opening up about the split.

During her interview, Aguilera said that while the divorce is certainly painful and difficult, there’s one thing that’s keeping her focused:

My focus first and foremost is my son Max. More power to single moms and those out there doing it. I was raised by a single mom. But you know what, at the end of the day….He’s the love of my life. I adore him and he’s such a character and he’s so happy and at the end of the day, that’s what’s most important.

Aguilera, who’s starring in Burlesque (which opens next week), will also be turning 30 years old in December and is embracing the milestone. She says that as compared to turning 20, “you’re more comfortable in your own skin as a woman. You have a better idea of what you want and how to get it. At this time in my life, it’s a huge turning point, it’s a transitional stage and I’m ready. I’m ready.”
