WHY CHRISTINA AGUILERA HATED WORKING ON ‘THE VOICE’

For six seasons, Christina Aguilera owned her red chair on The Voice.

But as it turns out the pop diva found working on the NBC singing competition series to be a “churning hamster wheel” and an “energy sucker.” Dirrrrrrrty!

“It became something that I didn’t feel was what I had signed up for in season one,” she told Billboard about her five years on the TV show. “You realize it’s not about music. It’s about making good TV moments and massaging a story.”

While she was used to calling the shots in her successful music career, there was too much on-set micro-managing for Christina’s tastes.

“I didn’t get into this business to be a television show host and to be given all these [rules],” she added. “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.”

Since Christina’s departure from The Voice, Gwen Stefani, Shakira, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys and Kelly Clarkson have also spent time in the coach’s chair.

But the “Accelerate” singer is putting it all behind her by releasing her first album in six years entitled Liberation and she’s not letting anything hold her back.
