After taking a break from coaching on the hit series The Voice to promo her new album, "Lotus," Christina Aguilera is thinking that it may be time to start exploring other creative ventures outside of music. Like sinking her teeth into another role; a more challenging one, after she starred in the 2010 movie Burlesque with the ever-awesome Cher, which must've been a little close to what her normal life looks like (minus the Cher, natch!)
What kind of role does Xtina want to play? What does the former Dirrty girl want to do?
According to E! News, Xtina wants to change up her creativity and channel it into another acting gig, saying, "I want to do something ... I can really sink my teeth into ... something more challenging. Really outside of music."
This makes sense, since the beautiful songbird has been busting her chops singing since she was a tiny tot.
"I want it to be honest and genuine ... expanding my wings and doing something really, really different." Makes sense to us! Xtina continued, "A crackhead on the street, or a drug addict. Or something crazy and juicy. Something that really took me out of myself."
This isn't a terribly shocking revelation for someone like Xtina who's used to pushing boundaries and changing things up for herself. Her discography goes to show how versatile an artist she is.
And we'll be interested to see how Xtina takes to acting, since it seems that people who have creativity pouring from their, well, pores, tend to be equally successful in other creative ventures. Remember Brit-Brit's "Crossroads," anyone? Okay, bad example.
Here's hoping Xtina gets the roles she wants and is able to expand her creative repertoire into an acting gig.
Do you think Xtina will do well as an actress? Is this potential career suicide for Xtina?
