Aguilera’s big break came when she participated in Disney Channel’s ‘Mickey Mouse Club’ as a teenager, alongside the likes of Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling.

“You have to learn very quickly to set your boundaries and your standards. I don’t like to stand aside and just let a man dictate what we should wear, how we should speak, have an opinion but not too much of an opinion and be sexy but not too sexy,” Aguilera said, adding that she turned to music “as an outlet” due to physical abuse she suffered at home as a child.

“The pain at home is where my love for music came from. You have to embrace darkness in order to find your light. With your darkness comes your insecurities and fears and some really bad moments, but it’s ok to cry to get through those hard times,” she said.
