Christina Fights Against Domestic Violence

Christina definitely seems to have her stuff together these days. It could have gone the other way considering she had a very rough childhood. She has spoken in the past of coming from an abusive home. She even wrote about the time her father threw her against a set of stairs in the song, I'm Okay. She went through her dirrty stage but now she's cleaned up and stronger than ever. She's even trying to help other victims of domestic violence. Here's highlights:

On her homelife:
"I was brought up in a household of chaos and I never felt stable at home. At a really young age, I decided I was never going to feel helpless, I was never going to feel weak around a man, and I was never going to rely on anyone. Independence was a big, big thing for me. I saw my voice as a way out - when my parents fought, I'd run up to my room, put on The Sound of Music, open the window and sing out. My voice was my escape."

On her work with victims of domestic violence:
"I work very closely with a shelter near Pittsburgh. One day I hope to open a shelter of my own. I think it's really important to share my own story with women who've been abused, because going through that experience has lead me to where I am today: It's given me the strength and motivation to be the best that I can be."

It's great that she's taken something so painful in her own life and used it as a motivation to help others. For the whole article just

I think it's great that she speaks up about this, and even if she does talk about it all the time, at least she's talking about a real issue, not about how she likes to have lots of boyfriends(ie LL).

as a victim of domestic violence I think it is a very important topic. For a long time I didn't think there was anything wrong w/ the relationship I was in & it took alot to end it. Lots of women don't realize that they are in a toxic relationship.

Good for her!!! Finally a MATURE acting young Hollywood!!! I like her new approach!! Much more flattering on and to herself!!

I guess I can see that... I've never gotten the feeling that the reason why she brings it up is for pity, so I guess being a role model makes sense.

Nomerz, I think the reason she talks about it so much is that it's a topic that most women are afraid to talk about or come forward with, and as a celebrity, she can be a role model for women who have suffered from abuse in their lives.

she also has a great publicist, Britney really needs to get on Popsugar and see how it should be done! LOL I think Xtina is super talented, but she just has this look on her face that seems like she thinks she is above other people. I am glad to see her doing good things, and I am also proud that she did not end up on the pole!

My sentiments exactly halo! This is why *I* love Christina

Nomerz - I think she just wants to get the word out for the various organizations that she works with. In my opinion it is much better than just talking about partying, etc.

I DON'T CONDONE VIOLENCE AND I FEEL FOR HER-- but it's all she ever talks about in interviews! Seriously! She (or the interviewer) brings it up in every single interview. I think it's great that she has risen above it so well and I get that it is something that will always define her, but I find it a tad annoying...

love the cover photo - her lips look so much better without the red lipstick

Good for her! She's doing something good and making a difference in the USA. Helping those in need in America is not the popular trend right now in H-wood. Fighting against domestic violence is a great cause. It affects so many women and children. Selma H. is helping with domestic violence too, I believe.
