Christina Aguilera won’t be returning as judge on The Voice and she hasn’t held back detailing why!
The singer called the show an “energy sucker” and compared the program to a “churning hamster wheel” in a damning interview with Billboard.
Despite being one of the original judges on the show she said she didn’t enjoy her stint on it complaining, “I was longing for freedom.”
From 2011 to 2016 hen she had breaks from shooting she said “I would just take everything off—the makeup, all of it—and would blast hip-hop, or Nirvana, ‘Creep,’ Slayer. Anything like that to get me out of that zone, that TV mode.”
The Genie in a Bottle singer said, “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.”
She slammed the show’s purpose which she found herself at odds with remarking, “It became something that I didn’t feel was what I had signed up for in Season 1. You realize it’s not about music. It’s about making good TV moments and massaging a story.”
