Christina Aguilera Grilled By Matt Lauer (video)

By Entertainment Diva Andrea Krivelow
Christina Aguilera appeared on The Today Show Tuesday morning to promote her singing competition, The Voice.

Matt Lauer decided to throw in some personal questions during the interview, though, asking:

"There have been some tough times this year: the National Anthem thing, the fall at the Grammys, the divorce, the public intoxication. There was a time where people, your friends, the people who love you the most, tried to intervene in your life. Is that true or is that an exaggeration?"

Aguilera responded:

"I think there were some definite ex, disgruntled employees along the way. Whenever things happen like this to you, some people just want to kick you when you're down. For me, I've been in this business a very long time. . .and you're going to have your high moments and your low moments."

She continued:

"Right now I feel that I've found my true friends and people who are really there for me and have stuck by me and have just supported me. When you're going through a hard time, you don't need people judging you and ridiculing you. The people that are around you are going to be the ones to support you and love you through whatever difficult time you're going through."
