Christina Aguilera admits she's her own worst critic when it comes to her music.
The 'Not Myself Tonight' singer admits she is very harsh on herself because she's such a perfectionist and often relies on husband Jordan Bratman to get her through her tough times.
She said: "Having someone that's your rock and your backbone really helps in my weakest times. He always says to me, 'Your creative process is to s**t all over yourself and then what comes out is gold!' Ha ha!
"Because I do. I'm my own worst critic sometimes. Because I'm such an extreme perfectionist when I'm in the midst of creating what I do. So it's a little bit of a tug of war with myself. And Jordan always is that guy that's there to lift me out of my dark hole and let me see the glass is definitely fuller than empty."
Despite being harsh on her ability, the mother-of-one is thrilled with her latest album, 'Bionic', because it has gone back to her roots.
She told the Scotsman newspaper: "'Bionic' is something I'm so proud of. It's an accumulation of all my old records. It revisits my early pop days because it goes into a full-throttle, fun pop record where I can get in touch with that again.
"And my son really allowed me that. Because when I had him, he brought out my more playful side again. 'Stripped' went to a little bit of a darker place for me because I had so many stories to tell. A lot of it was very pain-driven."
