In the interview, Aguilera opens up about her failed marriage to music producer Jordan Bratman, with whom she has a three-year-old son, Max. "At one time or another we were not angels," she says candidly. "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."

PHOTOS: Stars go Burlesque

Since her split with Bratman, Aguilera's found love in the arms of her new beau, Matt Rutler, who was a production assistant on the set of Burlesque. "He was so supportive. He still is," she says. "We've been through a lot in the past year."

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
