Christina Aguilera wants "meaty" new film roles: 'I'd love to play a crackhead'

'Your Body' sensation Christina Aguilera has admitted that she is interested in continuing her film career, but would love to broaden her acting horizons by portraying an edgy or unexpected role.

The singer, who starred in 'Burlesque' alongside music icon Cher back in 2010, explained that she wants to pursue more hands on characters and hopes that she can build on her involvement in movies in the future:

"I do want to do more acting. I want to do something where I can really sink my teeth into something a little more challenging. Really outside of myself, outside of music. I sort of had this personal aspiration to do film, but I said, 'I never want to do a musical! It's too much like myself."

Aguilera added that it would be great to surprise both an audience along with her fans by doing something they wouldn't expect, such as playing a "drug addict":

"I want it to be honest and genuine in expanding my wings and doing something really, really different. A crackhead on the street or a drug addict. Or something crazy and meaty and juicy. Something that really took me out of myself."
