DALLAS - Christina Aguilera said that she had sung the "Stars Spangled Banner" dozens and dozens of times at football games, baseball games, basketball games, and even at The Laramie Cowpoke & Cowpokette Lassoing Finals and Rustic Rodeo and that she had never messed up the words as bad as she did in Cowboy Stadium before Super Bowl XLV (45).
The 30-year-old singer of such hits as "Genie In A Wino's Bottle," Lady Marmalade, Sir Boysenberry," and her latest hit "Woo Hoo, Woo Woo, Hooha, Ha Ha" added that she first learned the words to the National Anthem when she was only seven.
She said that it was the third song she ever learned.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: The very first song that Christina ever learned was "Lola" by the Kinks. The second song she ever learned was "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" by Iron Butterfly.]
Christina revealed that the reason she messed up the words so horribly was because she was extremely depressed at the fact that she is getting divorced from her husband of nearly five years Jordan Bratman.
In the song instead of singing What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming she sang What so proudly we hailed at the Twilight's New Moon Eclipse Breaking Dawn.
Aguilera was asked afterward if she perhaps had recently seen one of the three Twilight movies. She paused for a second and replied, "Well...hmmm...that sounds like it certainly could explain my awful flub, but I'm not Britney Spears. I can't lie. The last movie I saw was The Little Fockers.
So long after everyone has forgotten that the Green Bay Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV, many will certainly recall that Christina Aguilera messed up the song that Francis Scott Key and Bob Dylan co-wrote back so many years ago.
