Christina Aguilera Talks About Balancing Work and Motherhood

This past Sunday Target teamed up with Christina Aguilera to celebrate 'A Night of Music' at the grand opening of the Target Terrace at LA LIVE in Los Angeles.

Hollyscoop was on hand at the red carpet where we got an exclusive one-on-one interview with Aguilera, where she discusses her new album, balancing motherhood and a career, and fellow new mom Nicole Richie. Check out the exclusive interview below:

Hollyscoop: Tell us a little about this album.
Christina Aguilera: The album is really for my fans and I look forward to the next 10 years.
HS: Was it hard to narrow it down?
Aguilera: I tried to pay attention to what my fans responded to the most. I tried to put together the album that I feel they would love to hear most. That is what I came up with.

HS: What does your son mean in your life?
Aguilera: It is hard to go to work and know that I am not going to be with him 100 percent. I know that I am leading my example.
HS: You are a full time star and a full time mom do you find it hard to balance both?
Aguilera: It is definitely a balancing act, but I knew that going into it. Part of motherhood is being that example but not letting go of the person I was before I gave birth. It is important to me to be a great example, but letting him keep his goals and passions for what he wants in life.

HS: What do you think of the slack Nicole Richie has been getting for going out?
Aguilera: She doesn't go out so much! She goes to dinners and stuff. That is a funny question. I really appreciate people that exude a lot of talent and hard work. Because our little ones were born one day apart, I have had the opportunity of getting to know her. I was blown away by how great of a mom Nicole is. I really am. She is a great woman and I think that having a child has made her grow so much, as it made me grow as well. It is inevitable that you are going to grow when you have a child. Anyone that wants to give anybody grief about going out is trying to be negative and trying to stir up some drama. But I have nothing but good things to say about Nicole. Thank you.

Hollyscoop to husband Jordan: Are you guys planning on having another one anytime soon?
Jordan Bratman: "Another what? Kid? No."
