Christina Aguilera will be leaving The Voice saying “[The Voice] kept me away from my heart”
Sitting on the judging panel on America’s favorite shows like “The Voice” and “American Idol” once upon a time seemed like the perfect career move for music artist, until now…
Singers like Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler & now Christina Aguilera are giving up their judging thrones and have promised to focus on what they love most… their own careers.
While many think its easy to sit on a throne, judge and help potentially jump start the career of new coming hopefuls, artist like X-Tina says it kept her away from her heart. She reveals to Billboard.com that:
“['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 staring to get really worried and concerned that I wouldn’t have the time to go and be an artist again.”
The singer continued, stating “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,” she says. “I just need a second to get back to me.”
While many will be sad that Christina’s leaving after the third season of The Voice, I personally praise her for making the decision.
Christina has a god given gift which is her VOICE and our ears are still due for her vocal treatment. I’m not ready for her to melt away on a judging throne.
