''I grew up in a very chaotic and abusive home where I didn't feel very safe. I started writing music, both melodies and lyrics, when I was 15. In retrospect, I realize I used it as a release, a therapeutic outlet. It was the way I found my voice.'' - Christina Aguilera
''In school, I was picked on and alienated because of my passion for music. So I harbored a little personal pain but the seemingly negative things made me smarter and stronger.'' - Christina Aguilera
''We can all look at our pasts, childhoods, home lives and it's easy to be a victim or victimize yourself - but I didn't want to do that. I was feeling lots of pent up emotions and they all came to a head in ''Fighter.'' - Christina Aguilera
