Christina Aguilera Tells Jimmy Kimmel That She Doesn’t Drive, Loves Arcade Games
Christina Aguilera seems like she can do anything: sing, dance, raise her son, mentor vocalists on ‘The Voice,’ look stunning at all times. However, the one thing she doesn’t do is drive.
“I don’t drive,” Aguilera told Jimmy Kimmel while she was the couch guest on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ last night. “Well, I have a driver’s license and I got it when I was 21. I am 30 now. I am terrified of driving in L.A., with paparazzi, running them over, you hear stories.” When Kimmel joked that celebs should try to run invasive paps over, she bantered right back, saying, “You don’t want to run them over. There’s that little thing called ‘suing’ or ‘being sued.’”
Aguilera has a driver to get around, which she acknowledged makes her sound “spoiled,” but she maintains that she is down to earth! She also joked that if she was still living out in Western Pennsylvania, where she is from originally from, she’d probably be more accustomed to getting behind the wheel.
Xtina also spoke about her son Max, now 3, who is in the protective phase. “If he was here right now, he’d say, ‘Don’t touch my mommy,’” the singer said about the way Kimmel greeted her. “He doesn’t get the whole thing, that mommy is a public personality. He is very protective. When I am getting my makeup done, he says, ‘No, don’t touch’ and cuddles with me.”
Aguilera also said that she took her toddler to the studio recently, once again confirming that she is in the studio and working on new material after last summer’s ‘Bionic’ failed to ignite with fans, or spark a single on the radio.
Kimmel made sure to show Aguilera shots of people with tattoos of her and she blushed, admitting, “It’s so sweet and so flattering. I don’t know what to say.”
Her lyrical gaffe at the Super Bowl was not off-limits as a topic of conversation, either. The miscue actually earned the singer her very own Trivial Pursuit card in a case of turning a sour pop culture lemon moment into a tall, refreshing glass of lemonade.
“I made a joke after the Super Bowl mishap,” Aguilera said. “I knew the heat I was going to get from the press and made a comment, that I just made myself a Trivial Pursuit category question.” The company responded by giving her her own card!
She also copped to being a massive gamer with a mini arcade in her house, but it’s not high tech and modern. Aguilera kicks it old school with Super Mario Brothers and Donkey Kong. “I hold the record for all of them,” she said. “Any time anyone who has a gamer in them comes over, they try to beat my score. I get competitive.” Aguilera swears she doesn’t rig the machines in her favor.
Aguilera can be seen every Tuesday on NBC’s ‘The Voice.’
