Pop superstar Christina Aguilera wants to prove her acting chops by playing a junkie in a "crazy and meaty" new film role.

The Dirrty singer last appeared on the big screen in 2010's movie musical Burlesque alongside Cher, but now she wants to land a darker role. Aguilera admits she would relish the chance to play a drug addict to prove her worth to audiences.

She says, "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.'

"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."
