Christina Milian Covers 'Latina' February 2011

Christina Milian graces the cover of Latina magazine’s February 2011 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (January 11)!

Here’s what the 29-year-old singer had to share:

On the end of her marriage to The-Dream: “No matter what, you can’t change who you are. I know that now. I tried to be someone I wasn’t because I wanted my marriage to work. But ultimately, if it’s not working, it’s not working.”

On the cheating scandal: “I didn’t know anything. But looking back, my gut was telling me something was off. But I thought I could fix it.”

On lessons learned: “I learned a lot about myself this year. I learned what I can handle. I learned how much I can take. I learned who I am and what I will accept for myself and my daughter.”

On becoming a mom: “Being a new mother definitely makes me feel so much sexier than ever before. There’s a certain responsibility that I carry being a mom that makes me feel very confident and so blessed. Being a mom is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”

On what’s next: “I feel brand new. I’ve been to hell and back, but I survived. I’m stronger for it and now I’m ready for the next phase of my life.”

  • Courtney

  • mimi

  • psychic

    she deserved it… gold digger

  • Tell Me Why

    This Girl is Beautiful.

  • Nat

    Great dress!

  • lovebuttons@gmail.com

    She is NOT a REAL Latina! she is black. I have noticed this with Latina mag as of late, they focus more on afro-latins than Latinas.

  • Soledad

    She doesn’t look latina, maybe Central American or African American.

  • Soledad

    @lovebuttons@gmail.com:
    wow, I didn’t read your comment before posting mine, but I agree with you. US people have no idea about South America, we are not all like this woman.

  • WHITE LATINA

    There is no such thing as a black and brown Latina all Latinas are white. Descended from European Spaniards. The United States try to lump all people with Spanish surnames into the same box but they are wrong! The brown and black Spanish speakers are descendants of the slaves the White Spaniards owned. IF YOU ARE NOT A WHITE LATINA YOU ARE NOT THE RIGHT LATINA! ESPECIALLY THE PUERTORICANS WHO WERE SLAVES MORE THAN ANY OTHER GROUP IN THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE. Brown and Black Spanish speakers are never accepted in Hollywood or society and they are despised by White Latinas!!!

  • Marisol

    Shakira is part Arab.
    Jessica Alba is half Swedish.
    Selena Gomez is part Irish.
    Salma Hayak is part Arab white.
    No real Latina is a Puerto or Dominican I agree. America tries to be politically correct but they are wrong. Look at the Telemundo and Univision and all of the Spanish speaking novelas…you will never find a brown or black Puerto representing the Latino people because they are not Latino.

  • Nadal

    Argentina is 85% European. People should learn the facts about South America and not rely on the U.S media to tell the history of our countries. If you are in America you should see how real Latino people look and are portrayed.

  • MEL GIPSON

    She looks like your typical PuertoRican hoodrat to me.

  • reba

    @Nadal: That’s only after the European decendants killed off the indigenous natives and mass-migrated there after WWII, right? So, what you are saying is that Argentines are mostly Jewish, Italian, and German? Interesting, if I do say so myself.

  • reba

    @WHITE LATINA: So do you tell the brown-skinned natives in Mexico, Ecuador, Colombia, and venezuela that they are not latinos since they are not white? How do you justify stripping them of the culture they grew up in just because they are not of predoninantly European decent? They are probably saying the same about you if you grew up in the States – you are not Latino – you are American! How does that make you feel when the shoe is on the other foot?

  • ZAHARA

    @lovebuttons@gmail.com: THE IGNORANCE ON THIS THREAD!!

    #1 – LATIN/LATINA is an ethnocity! That means that you can be black, white, Asian, Native and be a LATINO!!

    #2 – I think her parents are Cuban, so technically Cristina is LATINA!!
    Anyone with heritage from Latin America (Central, South America and the Caribbean are Latin! – Jamaicans and Haitians too…)

    #3 – I assure you, Eva Mendes and Jennifer Lopez have African heritage in their family just like Cristina does.

    Your comments sound so ignorant. Thank God you are hiding behind your screen.

  • ZAHARA

    @Nadal: I think people see J-Lo, Michelle Rodriguez, or Shakira and think all Latinos look that way.

    Most people are unaware that there large African populations in most of Central and S. America. Even Argentin had a big Afro population before war and the influx of Europeans in the 1900′s.

    There are more 3x more people of African decent in Brazil than there is in the U.S.
    In fact, in Miami, most Cubans look European, but in Cuba there is a huge African/mixed population. 40% of Colombia is African, Most Puerto Ricans have African blood, 80% of DR is African/Spanish mixed. Uraguay was a slave port and has an African population.
    They are even investigation where the 1 million African Mexicans disappeared too.. THey are mostlikely blended in (mixed).

    It is easy to make generalizations when people don’t know what they are talking about.

  • ZAHARA

    @Marisol: The novelas don’t have brown or black people because they are racists. You are confusing Spaniards with Latinos. Get a clue!

  • Lalalove

    She’s a beautiful woman! I’ve always admired her. She’ll be okay. Good luck to you and your daughter, Chris!

  • SHILOH

    I agree, only White people are Latin. The brown and black natives of PuertoRico are from slaves. The Mexicans,and people from Ecuador, Venezuela and other Latin American countries are conquered short Indians. Latin is simply a genetic term without meaning. First the ignorant Hispanics in America claim it is all Spanish speaking peoples then they claim it is all people from South America when their are millions of people from South America who do not have Spanish heritage or speak Spanish. Latinos are white, end of.

  • WHITELATINA

    A DRESSED UP MAID NOTHING MORE.

  • J

    @WHITE LATINA Oh if you were in front of me right now, I would punch you in the face, women or men you ignorant fool.

  • Songbirdie

    @lovebuttons@gmail.com: Latino is latino regardless if their African rooted, indigneous or european…stop the ignorance!!!

  • http://Koumishi Koumishi

    @WHITE LATINA You are a ignorant latin mess. I am also Afro-cuban like Miss Milian here and I want to let you know that I, as well as her, am a LATINO! If you want to take a look at some other afro latin artists please look up : Celia Cruz, Los Van Van, Don Omar, Buena Vista Club. Then please take a second read your dumb ass comments and erase them, and repost some comments that are at least correct and if you cant do that please allow J to beat you senseless =) tu pinga fula!
