Christina Aguilera on National Anthem Debacle: Caught Up in the Moment!

by at . Comments

Give Christina Aguilera credit for taking it all in stride.

It's been a rough few months for the star, who's gotten divorced, been involved a melee with Julianne Hough, arrested for public drunkenness and more.

She also forgot the lyrics to the National Anthem before the Super Bowl, which was mortifying at the time, but she's shrugging it all off pretty well now.

Christina appeared on Ellen today to promote her new show (follow the link for a long preview for The Voice) and addressed the Star Spangled Bungle:

"I had been singing that song my entire life. I was the youngest anthem singer in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. I sang for The Steelers as a child."

"I think 7 or 8. I would sing for them. I think had a moment where I was at the Super Bowl at 30 years old. I took in the moment a little too much."

"Shoot me for appreciating the moment but here I am at the Super Bowl ... singing for my team and in front of the world. And remembering what it was like to be that young and look where I made it now. And then it was like, oh."

"That night I knew, I just made myself a Trivial Pursuit question ... In 2011 what female singer, ya know, flubbed the lyrics. It's just insane. But I have a really good laugh about it and you get over things. You get back up again."

"You just prove to yourself and to everyone you that much stronger."

Well put. Here's hoping she lives by that mantra in all facets of life.

Fuckin' Ellen was gawking at X-Tina's big ol' hot titties, lickin' her chops like they were the steak and lobster dinner being delivered on a silver platter by a tuxedoed waiter at god damn Musso & Franks! Judging by Ellen's sordid glances, I bet she'd eat through a heaping stack of dicks and maybe even take a little bukake on the chin just to nibble on one of those voluptuous nipples like a baby binkie. And who could fucking blame that shriveled up ol' dyke? I bet that asshole ex-hubby of X-Tina's cries himself to sleep every night thinking about how another man's slab-o-meat is being laid between those greased-up titties every night. Hell, I might even she a tear on his behalf if I wasn't such a cold-hearted mother fucker, but we all know that ain't gonna happen.
