Christina Aguilera has admitted that she struggles with depression and that sad feelings can be “seductive”. The ‘Not Myself Tonight’ singer said that she suffers from the disorder, but often finds that some of her most creative moments come during her darker days.
Speaking on VH1’s Behind The Music, she explained: “I do battle with depression. It’s something that is always right below the surface. And it’s almost seductive to go to a place of sadness and darkness. I’m truly thankful for the darkest times in my life. “I definitely don’t choose the safe way of living or expressing myself but I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
