Mistakes happen to the best of us, but Christina Aguilera suffered the most humiliating moment of her career when she flubbed the words to the Star Spangled Banner during her performance at Super Bowl XLV in Arlington, Texas this past Sunday. Somehow botching the line “O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming” with an improvised “What so proudly we watched at the twilights last gleaming,” Christina embarrassed herself in front of an estimated hundred million viewers. YouTube videos of her performance have gone viral … along with a video of her rehearsal, in which she was so confident she didn’t even finish the song.
It seems like everyone’s got something to say about the incident, including the pop diva herself. After the whole mishap occurred, she told US Weekly “I got so caught up in the moment of the song that I lost my place. I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through.” Christina’s been getting a lil wild in recent months (reports now say that she let her current boyfriend, Matt Rutler, move into her home before her ex-husband Jordan Bratman had moved out) but one thing’s for sure—her Super Bowl calamity will be mentioned for years to come.
Seen here in a pair of stunning vintage-inspired Prada sunglasses, Christina is definitely gettin her glam on. The oversized shades are available in gloss black with gray gradient lenses or Havana with brown lenses. And chin up, Christina, you’ve already been invited to redeem yourself by singing for the Brooklyn Cyclones, a minor league baseball team.
