Singer Christina Aguilera said she wants her children to grow up as confident people with a mind of their own.
The 37-year-old singer, who has son Max, 10, with Jordan Bratman and daughter Summer, three, with Matthew Rutler, said she does not want them to be overexposed to her career.
“I don’t want to inject too much upon her as to how I’m choosing to live my life and what I’ve done in my career. I just hope I can allow what I’m doing to influence her to be her own person. That’s truly what I hope for her.
“I really want to make sure my children are both very confident in the sense that they know who they are and that they won’t be easily swayed by outside opinion,” Aguilera told Paper magazine.
The “Infatuation” hitmaker said social media comes with its advantages and disadvantages but believes things are changing.
“There’s always gonna be the good and the evil, the dark and the light. I think now is the time, more than ever, that we’re seeing that in every sense of the word…
“There’s always gonna be those trolls out there or people that have their own definition and ideals of beauty, but I think we’re progressing to a place of pushback and more people coming out,” she said.
