Christina Aguilera says she’s a fan of Lil Nas X’s Saturday Night Live performance, where he kissed a male dancer on stage.
“He did really great,” she told TooFab. “I mean, it’s hard growing up in this business, I know firsthand, and getting backlash and criticism … you’re under a microscope whenever you’re in this business in general.”

“Just because you’re strong and you present an image of strength that doesn’t mean certain things don’t hurt or the criticism can be a lot and take its toll over some time,” she continued, “but it’s nice to see this generation be so strong and so strong in their own power and the power of their expression. You can’t fault someone or criticize anybody for going through anything that they feel is best in their life.”
Christina says people should be able to live their lives the way they choose.
“I explored and I’ve been so open and supportive of everyone just living their best lives,” she added, “so you know, cheers to anyone who’s just living their best life and owning it. It’s great … we’re allowed to do whatever we want as artists, change our mind and if it’s not for you, flip the station, it’s fine.”
