Spears falls in slimelight again

Christina Aguilera has accused stars such as Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan of lacking the self-control necessary to shun drugs and alcohol.

Christina Aguilera has accused stars such as Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan of lacking the self-control necessary to shun drugs and alcohol.

The pregnant singer is critical of stars who lead wild lifestyles and are not worried about the effect their behaviour will have on their careers. She said she had managed to avoid life's excesses because of discipline.

"When you hit 20 or 21 and you're around drugs and alcohol, everyone has a moment when they like to dabble in it and express themselves. It's called being young but there is a boundary," Aguilera told Glamour magazine.

"You see all these horror stories about people who have died of drug overdoses, people who have taken it too far and ruined their lives, and for me, I had so many things that I had yet to accomplish. It was just a matter of thinking, I don't want to waste any time and am sticking to the plan."

She insists Spears should have stayed in the night before her MTV Video Music Awards performance in September to ensure her comeback was a success.

"Everyone has their own ways of choosing what's best for them. I have no problem with telling someone, 'Hey, I have to do a show tomorrow. I want to do a good job and be on my game'," she added.

"Sometimes I wish I could go out to a party or a club and just be able to be free, but there's a consequence with the temptation.

"You know you'll feel it the next day when you wake up."- Wenn
