Season 3 of NBC’s The Voice premiered to huge ratings but that’s not enough to keep Christina Aguilera on as judge / mentor. Her focus is on her music and, for that to be perfect, she needs to take a step back from the show.
With these words, Christina is announcing her departure from The Voice next season. The quote comes from Billboard
magazine via TGJ
, but the Billboard link doesn’t seem to be working right now.
“[The Voice] kept me away from my heart, which is creating my own music. It’s been a joy to be a part of other people’s journey, to be able to inspire and be a part of new singers coming up in this business … but I was starting to get really worried and concerned that I wouldn’t have the time to go and be an artist again,” Christina says.
“I’ll probably be back. I just need to do my thing for a minute then I can come back and be that much better of a coach. I just need a second to get back to me,” the singer adds.
