Christina Aguilera won't put movies first

September 18th, 2011

Christina Aguilera will never put movies before her music career.

The 30-year-old star made her film debut last year in 'Burlesque', and while she is looking for more cinematic projects, she insists her main focus will always be as a singer.

She said: "I'm always reading scripts. 'Burlesque' was something that came to my door that I was truly inspired to do. It was the right time and place for me to dive into that world I've always been inspired by.

"But I'm not going to do back-to-back movies just to do them. Music is always my first love and where my time and attention will remain.

"But film is something that will be on my mind and I am looking for the next project."

Christina split from her husband Jordan Bratman - the father of her three-year-old son Max - last year and she admits their break-up and subsequent divorce has inspired some tracks for her next album.

She told Britain's Hello! magazine: "I'm in the studio now working on my next album and I'm writing so much. I've been inspired by a lot over the past year, the experiences I've had, the good, the bad, the highs, the lows - it will all be apparent in the lyrics.

"The mood of the album will be very introspective, heartfelt and deep rooted."
