First, we disclosed the news of Orlando Bloom battling with dyslexia, but we now have another huge star disclosing her secret.

During her interview with Vh1′s Behind the Music, which premiered on June 13, Christina Aguilera showed her vulnerable side by admitting that she is currently battling with depression.

She continues to say that, “it’s something that is always right below the surface, and it’s almost seductive to go to a place of sadness and darkness.” That possibly explains her sad singles, “Hurt” and “Beautiful.”

It may come shocking to you that this beautiful latina has depression, but many other celebrities have also dealt (or is currently dealing) with depression (i.e., Kurt Kobain, J.K. Rowling – author of The Harry Potter series, and Heath Ledger).

Many critics will criticize Christina for using this as a “ploy” to get album sales since she did just release an album. But, for any person, it takes a lot of courage to disclose to the public what you’re currently dealing with. We applaud her for that.

What do you think of this news? Does it come shocking, or is this just the norm?
