Christina Aguilera on The Voice: ‘It’s not about music, but good TV’
Christina Aguilera unleashed a brand new song and video yesterday, ‘Accelerate‘ featuring Ty Dolla $ign and 2 Chainz
The ‘Beautiful‘ star also announced that her upcoming album, ‘Liberation‘ will be out in June.
One thing she won’t be announcing is a return to ‘The Voice‘.
Speaking to Billboard, the ‘Burlesque’ star said: “It became something that I didn’t feel was what I had signed up for in season one.
“You realize it’s not about music. It’s about making good TV moments and massaging a story.
“I didn’t get into this business to be a television show host and to be given all these [rules]. Especially as a female: You can’t wear this, can’t say that. I would find myself on that show desperately trying to express myself through clothing or makeup or hair. It was my only kind of outlet.”
Instead she’s keen to return to performing in front of her fans. The 37-year-old said: “When I’m onstage, there’s not a bigger high, when I’m in connection with my voice and my heart and my soul.
“But at the end, I want to wipe it all off, get in my sweatpants, make silly noises with my kids and have someone comfort and cuddle me.”
Liberation is out June 15. Accelerate feat. Ty Dolla $ign & 2 Chainz along with the stunning music video, directed by Zoey Grossman is out now (watch below).
Last week Aguilera took part in The Late Late Show with James Corden’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ (watch below).
