Christina Aguilera Aims to Empower

by at . Comments

With her face plastered on tabloids and with a recent arrest on record, Christina Aguilera faced the press yesterday.

The singer made her first public appearance since being booked for public intoxication, telling journalists gathered for an event to hype NBC's The Voice that life can be difficult in the spotlight.

"We're only able to be seen through the microscope of the media and what people gossip about," Aguilera said.

On the panel, Christina joked around with fellow judge Adam Levine and played with son Max throughout the interview. She continued:

"You take the good with the bad. It's by telling our stories, sharing our experiences and really giving a first hand look at us as human beings [that shows] who we really are, apart from what we seem to be."

Her goal as a judge on this American Idol-like competition? To inspire contestants.

"The Voice isn't about tearing people down. I want to bring people up. I want to empower them and give them all the tools I had. I love that I get to be apart of that."
