Pop star Christina Aguilera turned her back on romance as a young child - because she wanted to focus all her energies on achieving her dream of superstardom.
The Beautiful hitmaker, who married music executive Jordan Bratman in 2005, admits she has never been "boy crazy", and is glad she never let puppy love get in the way of her ambitions.
She says, "I never went through that completely boy crazy phase because I was always so goal orientated in what I wanted as a performer, and I think knowing that was my form of independence."
