London: Pop star Christina Aguilera, who recently split from husband Jordan Bratman, said she wears her wounds with pride and is looking forward to turning 30.

The `Burlesque` star reaches the landmark age later this month but rather than worry about getting older she is using all the lessons she has learned over the past 29 years to have a great next decade, reported a website.

"In this business, people get really scared of age but I wear my wounds as something I`m proud of. You learn so much more about yourself and now I couldn`t even imagine being 20 again," said Aguilera.

The `Genie in a Bottle` hitmaker, who is currently dating set assistant Matthew Rutler, said she is ready to turn a new chapter in life.

"Now I just feel that I`ve arrived at a place where I`m experiencing a lot of change for myself in a great way. I`m growing as a person and as a woman, and I think that this is the beginning of a new chapter for me."
