Inspirational Women in the Entertainment Industry: Christina Aguilera...

And now... a word from Christina Aguilera:

"I've been on all spectrums. I've been in this for a long time. I came out on the scene when I was 17 years old. You can never be too much of anything. You can never be too perfect, too thin, too curvy, voluptuous, this, that. I've been on all sides of the spectrum as far as any female in this business at one time or another has had criticism due to a flaw in a hairstyle...and I'm always a risk‑taker too. I'm very confident in my body. I think my video works over the years have spoken to that.

"I've been no stranger to being very comfortable in my own skin to take risks, to take those chances, whether it be crazy cotton-candy hair or interesting theatrical makeup, you know, adding those theatrics to my stage and things like that...We [women] are definitely under a microscope and under massive scrutiny [but] as long as I'm happy in my own skin, that's all I need‑‑ that's all the confirmation I need. I'm happy with where I'm at.

"You basically know what you're in for [in this business], you know? You know that you're going to be under the microscope, and that's what you sign up to do, and you know you've got to be a strong, powerful, very confident woman. So in coaching and being in a position to coach these young girls coming up too [on NBC's The Voice], it is really a great thing for me to be able to share that with them, and also share, you know, my highs and lows along the way. I'm very open on the show about all of that. So it's a really good outlet for me."
