[Rolling Stone] ‘There’s Been a Lot to Say:’ Christina Aguilera Opens Up on New MasterClass
Promoting her new online class, the singer gets candid about finding confidence on stage, and teases what fans can expect on her next full-length album

Christina Aguilera continues to prep for her big comeback, and while a new album is forthcoming, her first project is decidedly a little more interactive.

The Grammy-winning singer is returning to MasterClass next month for a brand new class on “How to Elevate Your Singing & Stage Presence.” Available to sign up now on MasterClass.com, the new curriculum is part of the streaming platform’s “Sessions by MasterClass” program, which features a more structured curriculum designed to be taken and finished in 30 days.
 
Whereas most MasterClass courses can be taken on-demand and at your own pace, Aguilera’s latest session goes live August 3 and members are encouraged to take the course together in an effort to build community and engagement.

In addition to learning about personalizing a song and telling a story through your voice, Aguilera will talk about the power of visualization, helping students prepare for a performance with mood boards, journal entries and collages. Members will then have the opportunity actually record a performance from the session.

Aguilera will offer plenty of “hands-on” training too, with a custom vocal warm-up created exclusively for MasterClass. You’ll also get a first-hand account into the making of the singer’s latest Spanish-language album, La Fuerza, and hear her talk about performing one of her favorite songs, “At Last” by Etta James. There are five video sessions in total and everything is designed to be taken at home or on the go with the MasterClass app. Pricing for the Christina Aguilera MasterClass starts at just $15/month.

This is the second time Aguilera has worked with MasterClass. She was one of the first celebrities to sign on with the platform when it launched more than seven years ago and her “Christina Aguilera Teaches Singing” class continues to be a popular pick on the site.

Rolling Stone caught up with Aguilera to find out more about her return to MasterClass, how she learned to find confidence on stage, and what fans can expect on her next full-length album.

What made you want to return to MasterClass and work with them again?

I believe in platforms that encourage and inspire creative voices to be heard. It’s great that MasterClass allows people to share insight and personal experiences in easy-to-access bites of information.

I was an early believer and investor in the company, and am so proud of the work that’s been done, especially the library of education that’s been built by the instructors. There’s also no one way of teaching or learning. Everyone and everybody’s experience is different and unique. And that’s what’s so great about the classes – they are built around individual stories and journeys, and all it takes is that one little line or lesson or word of encouragement that can trigger inspiration for someone… opening the floodgate for an aspiring talent.


How is this Sessions by MasterClass different from your first class on the platform?

I never got any formal training growing up in the business, and I wasn’t taught in any structured school setting. Instead, I was taught by listening and feeling and learning to dig into my own stories and past, to create my vocal sound and future lyrics and albums.

My lessons not only walk you through [the] ways I’ve learned over the years, but to technically open, warm up and sustain my vocal ability. Also, you’ll learn the ways in how I manage the nerves and mental anxieties that come with being a performer, which can be half the battle!

The session in particular dives deeper into breaking down the insight I give and honing in on things I’ve experienced since my last class was offered.


What do you like about a platform like MasterClass? How does it let you connect with your fans?

My fans are already so creative, and I know they appreciate authenticity, being a place that’s important for me to come from. I love sharing and hopefully inspiring future generations through what I’ve built over decades and how they can build from that.

Given that I also grew up in a generation where privacy is valued to the fullest, and not overly sharing on social media or putting out too much content, they know that when I do speak up or release something, it’s something I value and believe in fully.


You didn’t have platforms like MasterClass when you were starting out.. so who did you go to for advice?

On the flip side of that, when I was coming up, there was a huge lack of information that came directly from artists themselves, whereas now we live in a time where we are inundated with information and access to everything. So I had to really travel and navigate on my own, which is super tricky and hard being a young female doing it alone.

I guess it’s for the best as it really internalized that “fighter” mentality that I have and perform and sing with…which now my fans have related to and call themselves “fighters” too.


What advice do you have for people who want to find confidence to improve their stage presence?

Some of the most introverted, sensitive and shy people are ones that have to perform on a stage or share ideas to get them heard or created. It’s why coming from a place of intention within your own authenticity is so important as your grounding factor for what you put out there.

Getting in touch with what it is you want to say and stand for is important; digging into who has inspired you and understanding why that is, will help develop your skill and make it easier to make those bigger moves in knowing who you are first, before anyone else.

Everyone will have an opinion of you that you cannot control. It makes it hard to put yourself out there for sure, but when you believe in what you’re doing, others will resonate with that confidence. I touch on this in one of the lessons I teach.


Last time you took the stage was at LA Pride — how did it feel to be performing live again after two years of Covid?
 
Pride shows are some of my ultimate favorites to do because it is always an environment where I get to feel super free and have fun and explore fantasy, play and freedom!

The costumes were a different level on this one and we had so much fun transitioning with all the themes. And I got to do LA Pride with some fun special guests, reuniting with Mya for Lady Marmalade and [performing with] Kim Petras and Paris Hilton.

And after pandemic restrictions, yes! It’s been fun getting back out there for festivals and shows. There’s nothing like getting to experience fans and music LIVE in person!


What can you tease about new music from you?

Getting back into my Spanish music releases this year has been such a beautiful, long-awaited moment. It had been 20 years since my first Latin debut, Mi Reflejo, and I’d wanted to give fans a substantial follow up for so long.

That is also why I’ve wanted to release the music in chapter form, starting with La Fuerza, La Tormenta and I will be following with La Luz releasing – and ultimately the main comprehensive album, Aguilera— acknowledging, embracing and engaging with my roots in a way I’ve never done. The final chapter shares some closure in relation to my father, and shedding light on any darkness to be left in the past and moved on from.

And of course for the fans that don’t speak Spanish, an English-language album has been in the making and will be released when I feel it’s super solid and of course the most “authentic” work I have to share and offer. I want to give the fans the best of me!

There has been a lot to say… a lot has accumulated and has happened in the past few years… changes in me that will all be voiced and brought to life on the next record.

[People] Christina Aguilera Is 'Completely Open' to 'Collaborating' with One of Her MasterClass Students

"I'm constantly inspired by my fans and the things they share with me, and I'm constantly learning," Aguilera tells PEOPLE in an interview about her new Sessions by MasterClass course

Christina Aguilera's MasterClass is back in session.

On Tuesday, the Grammy-winning powerhouse vocalist announced a new Sessions by MasterClass online course titled Elevate Your Singing and Stage Presence that'll see Aguilera teach students to warm their voices up, craft their own unique version of a song and confidently perform with ease over a 30-day period.

The course marks Aguilera's second with MasterClass following an introductory 2016 series on singing, and this time around she's taking her lessons to the next level. "We're honing in on specific details, from vocal warmups I've never fully explored my own versions of to tools that I've evolved since my first MasterClass," the 41-year-old musician tells PEOPLE. "I take a moment to hone in on how to ease certain anxieties about live performing — as that sometimes is half the battle — breathing, what helps me and also really honing into who you may be, authentically."

Aguilera's been performing since she was a young child, and with decades of experience and countless hits from "Genie in a Bottle" to "Say Something" under her belt, she brings a unique perspective to the table as a teacher.

"I, for one, was never formally and personally trained on a technical aspect growing up, but sometimes all the technical training in the world doesn't mean as much as keywords or key stories and experiences from people that you look up to," she explains. "All it takes is that one little thing that you know you can say that can affect someone greatly and inspire the next future creator and generation to come."

In fact, she's already heard stories from students who've taken her first MasterClass on how her teachings have influenced their musical journeys. "You never know who you're touching and how you're affecting someone," says Aguilera. "There are a lot of parents who gift [MasterClass] to their kids or students for upcoming performances for how to deal with a gamut of different things from vocal technique, to your own nerves, to breathing, the physical aspects of what that involves, calming yourself and being prepared."

Throughout the new course, for which enrollment is open on the MasterClass website through its Aug. 3 start date, Aguilera will show students how to take a preexisting song and put their own signature spin on it. She'll lead by example with a live rendition of Etta James' "At Last," which she's already performed everywhere from her debut 2000 concert tour to the legendary R&B singer's 2012 funeral.

"I've reinterpreted my own versions of ['At Last'] time and time again on stage, and it's one that — like, even when I'm singing 'Beautiful,' ['At Last'] is just one of those songs that truly connects me, no matter how bad of a day I'm having," she says of James' signature 1960 hit. "I wanted to share that in hopes that it'll inspire other people to gravitate toward something they feel really speaks to them."

While the class is taught virtually through a series of pre-recorded videos, students should ensure they're putting forth their best effort, as Aguilera may be scouting her roster for potential future duet partners.

"I'm completely open to collaborating with someone that's taken my MasterClass," she reveals. "I thoroughly enjoy listening to other people's stories and getting inspired by them. I'm constantly inspired by my fans and the things they share with me, and I'm constantly learning. It's a fluid relationship."

Aside from MasterClass, Aguilera's currently in the midst of rolling out her Spanish language trilogy of EPs — La Fuerza, La Tormenta, and the forthcoming La Luz — all of which are part of a larger album titled Aguilera, her first full-length Latin music project since 2000's Mi Reflejo.

"To now approach the new Spanish music at a time in my life where I've survived this business over decades and am a mother to my children, who I want to share a part of themselves, a part of their roots, a part of their heritage, has been such a beautiful blessing within itself," says the musician, whose 7-year-old daughter Summer is an especially huge fan of the new material.

"My daughter listens to all of the new Spanish music in the car and requests it," Aguilera says with a laugh. "Sometimes I have to be like, 'Ugh, I don't want to think about work right now. Let's listen to Encanto.' But it's just been beautiful to see her resonate with the music and know that it's a part of her."

In order to provide fans with enough of the Spanish language music they've been requesting for decades, Aguilera decided to release the project in its three installments. Ahead of the third EP's release, she tells PEOPLE fans can expect deep reflections on her life and family in its lyrics, including her relationship with her estranged father, Fausto, the root of her Ecuadorian heritage.

"So starting with La Fuerza, the strength, [then] La Tormenta takes you through some of life's hardships. We're closing [the trilogy] with La Luz — and ultimately the main comprehensive album, Aguilera — acknowledging, embracing and engaging with my roots in a way that I've never done," she says. "The final chapter shares some closure in relation to my father, and sheds light on any darkness to be left in the past."
