No Plans To Return To 'The Voice'
In May, Aguilera made headlines after she had shared her thoughts about The Voice. The singer served as a judge on the hit NBC reality TV competition for five years. However, Aguilera saw the show as an energy sucker, and she decided to leave because she wanted more freedom to do whatever she wants.
When she comes home from set, Aguilera said that she takes off her makeup, blasts hip-hop or Nirvana and tries to get out of the TV mode. During her interview, Aguilera was also asked if she would ever consider returning to The Voice, and she said that she prefers to talk about more positive things.
"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," said Aguilera.
Aguilera also dished on Liberation at the time and said that "Maria" is her favorite track from the album. The singer teamed up with Kanye West on the song. The two artists fell out of touch due to the rapper's hospitalization in 2016.
