Christina Aguilera has tipped her son to follow her into pop music after hearing him sing a track from her new album Liberation.
In a Twitter Q&A with fans the Genie In A Bottle hitmaker, 38, revealed she loves singing with her three-year-old daughter Summer Rain, but recently discovered her 10-year-old Max shares her vocal talent.
“Summer and I stick to our Disney songs together, BUT, my son Max actually has an incredible voice- he doesn’t showcase it a lot- but I caught him singing Maria (a track from the record) the other day, and he was pitch perfect,” she wrote in response to a fan who asked her daughter knew any of her songs.
Tipping her son as a possible future star she added: “He definitely has talent there if he ever wants to do anything w/(ith) it.”
Max is Christina’s son by her first husband, marketing executive, Jordan Bratman. She is currently engaged to Summer Rain’s dad, Matthew Rutler.
When asked by another fan what the best thing about being a mother is, she replied: “Being able to be a kid again myself, and finding pleasure in small smiles and cozy moments of everyday life.”
Liberation is her first for six years, and when quizzed about her comeback record she hinted the long delay in releasing new material had been due to her unhappiness with the demands of pop stardom.
“It’s been really rewarding to be able to focus on getting back to my love of the music & not the superficial grind of the machine or cheesy commercial demands that are put on us as artists,” she explained. “I’ve said yes to much in my career that I’ve felt uncomfortable with, and this time around I promised myself that it was about getting back to my truth moreso (sic) than anything else.”
