Christina Aguilera Pens Open Letter To Fans: ‘I Am So Grateful’

Published: Thursday 29th Aug 2013 by David

As to thank them for their undying support of her in good times and in bad, ‘Just a Fool‘ performer has penned a heartfelt letter to her fans this week.

Released after Perez Hilton joined their ‘Justice for Bionic‘ campaign, the letter sees the star go a long way to thank her supporters, revealing that now- more than ever- she’s arrived at a place of peace and understanding, free of the drama many that oft threatened her public persona in the past.

Read below…

 

“Hello everyone.
I wanted to reach out to my fans out there that continuously support me and have my back relentlessly throughout the years.
I am so grateful and fortunate for your dedication. Your time & devotion. Your kindness and understanding. Your patience and compassion.
I continue to work, create and deliver my best to you.

I wanted to share with you a few thoughts that come to mind when I think of you all and the constant love I am blessed to receive from you over time.

I am so happy and at peace in life and I only want and wish you all to feel the same and live that way too!
Looking back, it’s amazing for me to be here now, today, feeling so proud and supported on my entire body of work displayed- both personally & professionally.

It has been a tremendous gift to have been able to share my work on such a large scale with all of you around the world, who have supported and appreciated my efforts through all I’ve worked tirelessly in accomplishing, for so many years now.
You’re strength encourages me to continue digging deep and searching within myself to openly offer my heart & soul to you.
As you have for me at all times and in every stage of my life and career.

Thanks for giving me a home inside your hearts and within your lives.
Its my wonderful gift back I get from you.
Its truly inspiring.
And I live to be inspired.
Thank you.
I may get quiet at times, but when I do have something to say, I mean every word.

My thoughts are always with you and my creative process always stirring within.

I decided to share my thoughts with you at length and tell you openly how I feel.

What a fantastic journey we’ve been on- full of lessons and anticipating so much more new, exciting and amazing things to look forward to in the future!

Thank you for listening to my words.
Opening your hearts.
Giving back love.
Seeing beneath the surface.
Searching for the truth.
Digging deep. Within yourselves & within your minds.
Feeling and sharing with me your own stories, your own life struggles.
And how my music may have touched you along the way.
Overcoming the hurdles and staying true to yourselves and beliefs.
You’re my inspiration and a constant reminder why I continue to give my very best and open up my heart and mind so vulnerably to you and with the best of intentions.
Thank you for appreciating the body of work I’m creating over time.

Recent and new creativity has been freshly infused and inspired in me, and I can’t wait to share with you all of my new personal growth and discoveries.
I’m writing a lot these days. Inspired thoughts overflowing first thing in the morning, onset at the Voice, and on into the night.
Pen & paper always at my side. Like an old best friend- eager and ready to take it all in.

I like to be thoughtful and take my time. I can never force anything or rush something not ready.Quality has always mattered to me over quantity.

Living in peace and contentment is the greatest gift you can give to yourself.

Thank you for filling my soul with melody and song…lyrics and love…and giving me a safe place I feel comforted in being brave enough to always bare my soul and come from an honest and genuine place.

It does my heart proud to have such spirited, passionate people in my corner and for so long.
We stand the test of time.
We brave every storm and overcome.
You with me. We are one as a team.
I love my fans deeply.

And will remind you more often. 😉

I’ve heard you guys go to bat for me, speak volumes and continue to defend and encourage what I do as an individual.
You’re so strong and I do the same for those I truly care about & believe in.
Always remember…

Greatness and quality speaks for itself.
I never feel the need to defend my own work or myself. Or my purpose behind it.
We all serve our own purpose in our own unique way, and don’t always need to explain why we are who we are, love what we love and do what we do.
Having nothing to prove to anyone.
Just having contentment and peace within ourselves. That’s all that’s really necessary.
And feeling good about knowing we’re making the right decisions for ourselves, giving our best in all we do and can do, within the moment.
The most important judge of that, can only be yourself.

Music for me at its core, lives in a place rooted in an existence all of its own.
It’s an extension of someone’s inner raw emotion and imagination.
An honest and brave place of self-expression and connection to who they are as an individual.
It can be a form of escape, an outlet for an emotion…and a place where we can all come together and connect as one. It provides a kind of home in one way or another for us.
That’s the beauty of it.
It’s why we’re drawn in and inspired by it in the first place.

It’s easy over time to get sucked into the mental “business aspect” of it all and sad that we sometimes forget the true purpose and nature of it to begin with.
Music and an artist’s truth & identity cannot be defined on a chart or a ‘review’ or with an award.
So don’t be disappointed or think in vain if things like that don’t happen.
It’s good to care, but being rewarded by material things, isn’t why I remain in this business.

Money and fame have never been the sole driving force of motivation for me to achieve what I have.
It’s the love of creating, expressing & connecting with myself and others alike through music that has always spoke to my passion and drive to be in this business.

It’s a beautiful and special thing, getting to meet who you do along the way…other writers, talented vocalists and creative beings who share the same love of being inspired as artists- inspiring each other.
Simply because we can’t live without it in our lives.

To any aspiring artists out there, just remember that judgment systems where creativity is concerned, cannot truly define what’s actually good or bad or better than something or someone else.
It can be fun and entertaining at times, but everyone has their own identity and reason to be heard. It’s good for people to have opinions and a stance on art. Everyone’s story and intention is different.
But you can’t let someone else’s interpretation of it define who you are and how you feel about it.
Or break your spirit if it’s not heard or understood at the exact moment you want it to be.

I grew up being a work horse and entering this business- earning money since I was 7, having had many successes and always priding myself on my hard work ethic.
It was always embedded in me and was all that I knew growing up.
And now that I’ve gained a deeper understanding of myself and what I want out of life moving forward…I’ve learned what’s important to me is “not to be defined by my work ethic, but by the person I am and become through my work efforts”.

I know firsthand that having success alone, is not going to fill you up.
Looking back, I recall a few career highlights that are wonderful to have had the experience of, but at the end of the day, weren’t my happiest stages in life.

I am enjoying life now more than ever before.
And discovering new things and ideas every day. Just enjoying myself, my life and appreciating all my hard work up to this point.

As an artist and music lover myself, I enjoy that music & song is appreciated and felt a different way by each individual who listens to and digests it.

Sure, it’s nice to hear when it is appreciated or understood.
Awards and accolades can be enjoyable “moments” in time. And I’ve been fortunate to have had many great ones over the course of mine thus far.
They look nice on a shelf. And is fun to celebrate with those you love on memorable nights.

But as an inspired artist, it is also ok by me and I welcome others to question my work, be disturbed by it, sometimes offended or turned off.
People have opinions. It’s life. No matter what field you may be in.
Especially in an artistic, creative subjective format- where everyone sees art with different views.
It’s great and ok to not agree on everything.
That’s what makes creative work so exciting.
To be able to inspire and open up debatable conversation.
That’s what being a true artist is about.

I started that mission, creating Stripped and never looked back.
I had to be & express who I needed to be, regardless of what anyone thought or said.
And I still have stayed true to that belief and to myself.
As I hope for all of you out there as well.
Be fearless in owning who you are. No matter what.

You have to put yourself out there and take risks. Sink or swim.
You have to give things a try.
Provoke thought. Speak from your heart.
Live in the moment.
Experience and discover the growth within yourself that challenges in life gives you.
And appreciate that gift that’s only given through times of struggle and hardship.

Be patient. And good to yourself.
We spend too much time critiquing ourselves and beating ourselves up.
For the things we may not have, or simply haven’t happened “yet”.
And sometimes aren’t able to even be realized or recognized at this present time. But will.
Everything that’s meant to happen, does.

Appreciate the courage it takes to give yourself and put yourself out there in the forefront.
Not everyone can do that.

It’s easier to judge others from the shadows, projecting one’s own negativity within themselves, than to live out loud in the spotlight, taking on whatever may come your way in the moment.
May that be successful or not.
At least you can say you did it, and was courageous enough to live through it!

Be fearless enough to be a conversation piece.
Come from genuine intentions.
Speak your own truth.

Understand and appreciate your own journey- that only you yourself can, in your shoes alone.

I’ve never been one to shy away from anything I set out to do or feel instinctively in my life, based off of any outside public opinion.

Every great legend that I personally admire and has motivated me throughout history, has been fearless to stir noise and create some controversy along the way- but they survive the good and bad times.
They’re spirit never dies. And lives on.
For future generations yet to come along and appreciate.
Music never dies. We keep it alive in us.

My voice, I appreciate as a gift that allows me to help others sometimes find theirs.
That’s reward enough for me.
Makes the journey worthwhile.
And honesty to myself and who I am, all the validation I need.
Music is a blessing. Let’s remember that.
It is a complicated and rare multifaceted art form.
Inspired by purest of intention and emotion.

As always, thank you for accepting me for who I am. Being human- flaws and all.
We’re all made up of beautiful imperfections.

And many times much stronger than we think or allow ourselves to believe in the moment.

While commentary is only temporary.
The noise fades, while my song remains the same.
One to remember and I quote…
“We are beautiful. No matter what they say.”

Sending everyone an abundance of warm light.
Feel me in your hearts, as I feel you in mine.
Together, we brightly shine.

We stand the test of time.
Always have. Always will.

* An extra side note for the fans in facing certain obstacles life may throw your way…remember this.

The mirror in front of hatred, is always an ugly reflection of one’s inner self.
It’s a projection that stems from a place of one’s own issues with themselves.
But that’s not our battle. Others have to figure that out on their own. It’s not for us to take on.

Live life in peace and enjoy what you love.
Seek the good things that make you happy.
Listen to the people and music that make you smile.
What it is that inspires you to sing, laugh and dance.
Tune out what doesn’t, and the negative people along the way. They’ll always be there.
That energy is a waste of time. Life is too short to allow a second of it to slip away that’s not enjoyed. Surround yourself and apply your energy to the people who REALLY matter around you and to you.
Every day, we all have a greater and bigger purpose to live and good things to receive.
It’s our responsibility to ourselves…to those we care about and who care about us, to stay open and keep discovering the new adventures that await us.
I love you all.
Christina/ X.”

  8. Lana the legend August 29, 2013

    Girl whos fina read all that? Im not #NEXT

  9. Kelly’sMotivation August 29, 2013

    That was very nice of her.

  10. Kisses Down Low August 29, 2013

    Nice but I never warmed to her as a person she seems very stuck up. And people have complained about her from Mary J Blige, Avril Lavign, Adam Levign, The Wanted. That says a lot.

    • BionicGlam August 29, 2013

      Why don’t you go and buy TAGG?

      • Kisses Down Low August 29, 2013

        Why didn’t you buy LOTUS?

      • #Hive August 29, 2013

        There both f****** flops.

      • BionicGlam August 29, 2013

        I bought Lotus and JAF which is Gold. How many Gold singles does Kelly have? I heard she’s never even had a Platinum album before. Is this true?

      • Kisses Down Low August 29, 2013

        Lotus is a flop though. Kelly is selling off pure R&B and your girl went from doing over 10 mill to barely scraping gold gurl bye! Kelly is more relevant than Christina at least she can have a hit on her own (Motivation). When was the last time Xtina had a hit on her own?

      • Goppit August 29, 2013

        But Lil Wayne was in ‘Motivation’, though…

      • Kisses Down Low August 29, 2013

        It was Kellys song though.

  14. Lamb 4 Life August 29, 2013

    Why is she thanking them? They dont care about her no more look how they let her albums flop.

  15. #Hive August 29, 2013

    Maybe she shoulda done this years ago so then her fans wouldn’t have abandoned her lol

  16. Shauwndapooh August 29, 2013

    I had to skim through it but that’s very nice her

  17. TurntUp4Cici August 29, 2013

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Kelly fans have no place talking trash when every other girl has had at least one era where they slayed. What Kelly’s era where she slayed?

    • Kisses Down Low August 29, 2013

      Said the Ciara fan.

    • Mary j stan August 29, 2013

      But babe Kelly has more fans then Ciara , so why are you talking?

    • JER August 29, 2013

      Once again, I see C-error stans talking s*** an dcoming for others, Kelly, Bey, Rihanna. It’s not Kelly stans I see out doing the absolute most. I actually don’t see to many Kelly stans these days on the real, but the ones I do see are happy for any shine she gets. You C-error stans are hereby banished back into eternal darkness GURLBYE!!!!!!!!

  22. Kisses Down Low August 29, 2013

    I aint trash talking Christina its called truth tea and she is not liked in the industry. And her dumb stan cant handle it I will defend Kelly when you start talking about something irrelevant to distract from the issue. So sit down Ciara fans should not be dictating anything the shade writes itself.

    • the one August 29, 2013

      Just ignore the Ciara stans their desperate for attention.

  23. rih rox((beyonce stealing Nartasha dress)) August 29, 2013

    Good Lord!!! That is a very long letter, too bad I only read the first paragraph.

      Insteada the b**** writting books she should b a spokesperson for tampons imo.

    Ok.

  26. RoyalKev August 29, 2013

    Damn Chrissy wrote that essay like she was running for major or something. It was very thoughtful and kind of her. I’m glad she has fans willing to fight for her. The Justice campaign really makes a statement! Most importantly, you can tell Christina’s in a good place and that she’d grown up a lot!

    • JER August 29, 2013

      Gurrrrrl you know she’s trying to get that free bus ticket to Washington DC from this essay!!!! She’s gonna petition congress to repeal her past 3 flops.

  27. rih rox((beyonce stealing Nartasha dress)) August 29, 2013

    I am so bored that I am actually going to scroll back up and read it.

    Wish me luck.

  28. Live for the applause August 29, 2013

    Honey you are not Beyonce GaGa Rihanna or Katy therefore the majority isn’t guna read this long ass essay you really tried it girl your fanbase is non exsistent .

  29. Bey-Minaj August 29, 2013

    “Music and an artist’s truth & identity cannot be defined on a chart or a ‘review’ or with an award.”

    This is for stupid ass TGJ commenters who always boast about chart success and who has a platinum album and who sold how many singles and who flopped and yadda yadda yadda. When will you learn to appreciate music for what it is and not how it charts?

    • Live for the applause August 29, 2013

      Its all about the charts b**** shut up!

    • JER August 29, 2013

      …. says the BeYAWNce stans after her first album flopped. How many Grammys does BIONCI have? Yal remind us of it so often yet I still fail to give a s***.

      • Lou August 29, 2013

        Clearly you do since it stays on your mind

  30. Marcy August 29, 2013

    Mary J Blige was right.

  31. christinastherealtalent August 29, 2013

    Christina doesnt have to be on the charts to inspire me. Her music catalogue speaks volumes of that and here recently i have been jammong out to Fighter. I realized i was gay, suffered from bullying and dealing with my parents separation when Srripped came out and it was her music that we got through the hard times. I am glad Christina took a different route as an artist and ventures into other projects in between albums rather than shove new muaic down our throats every year; i’d get bored with her. Her artistry and philanthropy stretches across the board which is more than what we can say for many other artists. Christina will always have a fan in me and as my throwback Thursday I will be jamming out to her entire music catalogue.

    • mother monster August 29, 2013

      Something I expect from someone who stans for a flop!

      • KENDRICK LAMAR STAN August 29, 2013

        Says the gaga stan

    • JER August 29, 2013

      Typical XXLtina f** stans trying to play the bully angle then turn around and fail trying to shade superior artists. BYE! BYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      BYEEEEEEEEEEE

  32. Kim Kardashian Stan August 29, 2013

    This shows how DESPERATE xtina is to gain her fans back…

  33. rih rox((beyonce stealing Nartasha dress)) August 29, 2013

    Once again I couldn’t finish it and I don’t need to because I think I get it now.
    It looks like a goodbye letter or a sympathy one. She’s just trying to get her fans back…

    Beyonce take notes…before your fans start giving up on your music and the whereabouts of that missing album that is long overdue.

    • SLAY_HIVE August 29, 2013

      Is Beyonce ever NOT in your thoughts?? Kiii

      You Rihject fans are anticipating the Queen’s album more than the Hive…you’d think Beyonce hasnt put out an album in 5 years, the way some of yall carry on…Beyonce has ALWAYS released albums YEARS apart….she doesnt have to release EVERY year to stay relevant….Rihject needs to take notes boo!

  34. JER August 29, 2013

    I can’t. Apparently now you can blame someone shining for why your shitty album flopped. Bionic is a terrible album, but not much worse than XXLtinas previous albums.

    All her records are mediocre but at least her older albums had songs that stood out as marketable, hence why her awful first album had so many hit singles. Her second album tried so hard to be P!nk’s M!zundastood and almost flopped, but had “Beautiful” and “Fighter” saved the day.

    We won’t discuss the massive bomb that was Back to Being Basic, althouh it’s her best album with songs like “Save Me From Myself” “Still Dirty,” “Candy Man,” “Slow Down Baby,” and “NAsty, Naughty Boy”

    But She followed her best ablum with that long ass, tired late mess that was Bionic. She took too long and didn’t make an album good enough for the wait.The best song, “Birds of Prey,” didn’t even make the album… .BYE! And “Elastic Love” was never released, one of the only good songs. Don’t try to blame Gaga.

    XXLtina and her team tried to push the trashy and “Dirty” rehash lead single and it flopped, then they tried to rush release the “Beautiful” rehash and it did even worse THEN they put out that awful song to capitalize on the Nicki Minaj craze and it backfired too. They took an era that stans say was innovative and edgy and placed it safe in every way. So how is that pushing the envelope? And they gave up too. The only real single was ‘Not Myself Tonight,” because they pulled the plug on the other two singles after the call out scores came back so negatively. Again, don’t blame Gaga.

    And we won’t even go in on the ATROCITY that is Lotus.

    So I won’t hear anymore of this “Gaga sabotaged XXLtina” when her label and her own fake lazy, uninspired fat ass didn’t need any help.

    And on ANOTHER note, you don’t see Toni Braxton stans going on saying “Mariah sabotaged Heat!!!!!” because Mariah rush released Rainbow in 1999? And you don’t see Janet tans saying that Mariah and Madonna sabotaged “Discipline” gurlbye with this!!!!

    • Fierce & all -Not here for b****** that can only slay in studios August 29, 2013

      Bionic is a terrible album but stripped, B2B are still her best.

    • all4u1 August 29, 2013

      But Christina never came out of her mouth and said the album was sabotaged. So, instead of trying to discredit her and dragg her in the dirt, you need to know the facts!

    • Legendtina August 29, 2013

      Your obsession is real. For some who constantly hates on Christina I’m surprised you listened to all of her albums and followed her career of the years. Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t that a sign of being pressed? First of all when did Christina ever blame Gaga for Bionic? Those are delusional stans, don’t get confused

      Secondly Stripped shitted on that forgotten Pink album. Like all of Pink’s work, nobody looks back at that decade and says Mizunderstood was one of the best releases of the year. Meanwhile Stripped has made many of those list. Dirrty was hugely successful in most countries except the US.

      Third WooHoo was released as a promo single, never a full single. And it came before You Lost Me, so the whole capitalize off Nicki’s success theory fails. You got it confused with Up Outta My Face honey.

      You Lost Me and Beautiful are nothing alike, not even remotely. YLM is a complete ballad that pop radio would never play. Especially at a time when California Gurls was slaying the charts.

      Furthermore this post has nothing to do with the Justice for Bionic campaign no matter which way Sam spins it. Your enitre incorrect and out dated comment was neither on topic or needed.

      Btw, the XXLtina shade is beyond tired. And void. Her weight loss made headlines. Try to keep up.

    What are xtina fans even called?

    • JER August 29, 2013

      they’re not.

    • all4u1 August 29, 2013

      Her fans are called “Fighters”! Anymore Questions?

    Hun i didn’t even read half of it! Good to see she has enough time on her hands to write book chapters to her fans! How sweet!

      Lol

    She has changed so much through the years. Some people learn from their mistakes and some not. Christina does, so her Karma is now more than OK.

    I’m so excited what’s coming next from her next year.

    And she is so true: artistry has nothing to do with manipulated charts. Go on, girl! *new fan*

    I never got ppl saying that she’s rude. What has she ever done that’s rude? I’ve looked at most if not all her videos on YouTube and she seems really sweet. It’s just her Stans that are rude….

    I like Xtina, but no way in hell will I read this long ass essay.

  40. all4u1 August 29, 2013

    This is a letter personally to her fans. I am trying to understand why is this letter posted on TGJ. I am really beginning to think that this forum is all about being popular and gaining hits. Anyway, justice will prevail for Christina who is an artist that is true to her music and herself. I appreciate her realness as a person.

  41. Mike August 29, 2013

    That was an amazing read

    One note, though: did her assistant type it? I doubt Christina would write “You’re voice” instead of “Your voice”.. lol 😉

  42. Goppit August 29, 2013

    Was this a letter or an ESSAY?

  43. Legendtina August 29, 2013

    I’m glad Christina wrote this letter. This is for her fans, not you illiterate hood rats who read at a 3rd grade level. I’m happy that she’s at a happy place in life and that she doesn’t care about chart positions and sales. She never has, you can tell. If she wanted a long and successful career she would’ve never taken 4 year breaks between albums or completely changed every album. People need to realize that Xtina isn’t in her 20s anymore. She’s not trying to compete with today’s pop stars. She’s a grown woman with a child. There is no rush to release another album especially when she doesn’t feel the need to.

    She’s addressing the sabotage of her Bionic album by Lady Gaga nd Perez hilton. Go here for more information.

    Over 10 years later and Christina still has so many people pressed and distressed. I respect her more for this letter.

  46. ISlayForX August 29, 2013

    Beyonce fans are just ranting because they know there’s a letter that they’re unable to read. Don’t be mad illeterate hoodrats, the letter is not for you so why bother?

    I guess Beyonce’s fear to her next flop has got them a lil’ funny acting.

    • Mya August 29, 2013

      Oh shut up moany b****. Its not only Beyonce stans talking about it.

  47. HOWYOULIKEIT August 29, 2013

    Eww. That was some long as letter. I thought she would expose Lady gaga

  48. boom box August 29, 2013

    Its a lengthy letter- meaning its long.. How do people not get that? Anyway I read it and its extremely heartfelt, thanking fans for being there for so many years and opening up about her life and what inspires her! Amazing. People are so quick to focus on the negatives- a lot of celebs get praise and shade from other celebs its NOT just Christina. With not much promo she did quite well, pople who dislike her can seem to name her albums so…. But overall a nice sincere letter to fans 🙂

  49. MicroPop August 29, 2013

    I think LET THERE BE LOVE is a new single!!! LOTUS Re-UP?! :O *feeling excited*

    New video @ official YouTube Channnel of Xtina!!!!
    (and just read the comments!)

  50. Mark111 August 29, 2013

    Oh shut up! She was a b**** for years, just ask MJB, Britney, Pink and Mariah (although she’s a rude b**** as well). Now that Gaga pretty much ended her career, now she wants to be humble.

  51. Justin Bobbi August 29, 2013

    i will always love Christina. She is my favorite singer because of she makes music based on her creativity in that moment and she isnt afraid of a critic or a chart. she is killer.
