Aguilera also praised Madonna, saying she influenced herself as a young artist.
“Madonna is, first and foremost, a great inspiration to the Queen to rediscover herself,” he said. “When I was little, I was not allowed to listen to her or watch any of her videos. It’s like a no-no, but when you were growing up, I found her list and her videos. There was such a message.”
