It’s not every day that Christina Aguilera and video games pop up in the same sentence. It’s even safe to call it a one-off. However, last week, the famous pop star teamed up with Nintendo for a virtual session in which she highlighted her interest in and affection for colorful, family-oriented games, and even raced over some of the freshly upgraded courses in one of her favorite games, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
The singer’s fondness for video games isn’t new. Aguilera’s Instagram account has a snapshot of gaming hangouts with her kids, Max and Summer, as well as solitary tournaments of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, in between postings dedicated to new and old songs, and instruments, touring photographs, and memories.
