Christina Aguilera got candid about the inspiration behind her song “Infatuation” from her 2002 album “Stripped” on the first episode of “RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked.”

Contestant Vanessa Vanjie Mateo asks Aguilera who she was referencing in the song which describes a Puerto Rican lover.

“Who was Puerto Rican? ‘Cause you know I might be related to him,” Mateo asks.

“It was heartbreaking because I found out he played for your team, not mine,” Aguilera responds.

“He’s going to see this and he’s gonna be mad,” Mateo says.

Aguilera replies, “I hope so, girl.”

In 2002, Aguilera revealed to MTV News that the song was inspired by her ex-boyfriend, dancer Jorge Santos.

The singer also addressed the ex behind her hit single “Fighter.”

“Was that about someone?” contestant Monique Heart asks. “Girl, you read him for the back room. When you said, ‘You tried to take a joy ride and came down in flames,’ I said, ‘Oooh.’ She read him.’”

“Of course it was,” Aguilera says.

“When you said, ‘You tried to take a joyride just came down in flames,’ I said, ‘She read him. No alimony, bitch,’” Heart continued.

“He deserved it. He deserved it,” Aguilera adds.
