Christina Aguilera wants her fans to know that she won’t be slacking when it comes time to tour and promote her new album, “Lotus”, even if it means giving up her job on “The Voice” for a season. The album drops November 13th, and since the talent competition is filming back-to-back seasons, Aguilera is taking the next cycle off to concentrate on the release and tour.

“Being a coach on The Voice is a wonderful experience and the relationship amongst us all is like an extended family,” Aguilera said. “As I have expressed since day one of the show, that I am a singer and performer first and I am so excited to get back to that love. Since this year NBC and The Voice have decided to tape back-to-back seasons, requiring a full-year commitment, it is important for me to take Season 4 off, allowing me to support my music that my fans have been waiting for.”

Cee Lo Green will also be taking that cycle off to work on his own music and to develop a series for NBC based on his life. Filling in for the two stars will be Usher and Shakira, which has sparked rumors that Aguilera and Green are leaving permanently, but producers insist that isn’t so.

“They all have to tour,” Mark Burnett said. “We knew it from the beginning, and they told us and told me. I sat down with all of them individually before we started the show. They told me, ‘You have to realize our priority is records and tours and shows. And this is a fourth thing on our list.’”

As for Aguilera’s new album, she says she’s gone back to her roots, but the tracks had some help from a few big names, such as Sia, Alex Da Kid, and Cee Lo himself.

“This album is about self-expression and freedom,” Aguilera said. “There is a lot I have gone through personally over the past few years and this record represents a rebirth for me. The record is about freedom and getting back to the root of who I am and what I love to do.”

    She is uppity and snotty sometimes so I think it will be a breath of fresh air to see someone else in that seat.

    I LOVE TO HEAR HATERS CALLING CHRISTINA A “HAS BEEN”. HAVE TO SAY AFTER ALL THESE YEARS SHE’S MAKING MOVIES, STILL RELEASING NEW ALBUMS THAT SEEMS TO BE CONTINUOUSLY TOPPING THE THE CHARTS, AND HOT NEW SHOWS SUCH AS “THE VOICE” ARE KNOCKING DOWN HER DOOR. THAT’S A HAS-BEEN? WOW TOUGH CROWD I GUESS…???

    Her last album tour “bionic” was cancelled because of the horrible album sales. I love her voice and she has a lot of raw talent. I feel like she kind of ripped off lady gaga who I absolutely loathe in most of the songs on bionic. Lady gaga is all about making people shocked and not about music. Do people really think she can sing?? I got a chance to listen to Christina’s new album and I liked most of the tracks except the ones that sound like recycled clubby r&b, rap and techno all meshed together (which was almost the whole bionic album). I loved her 2nd and 3rd albums (stripped and back to basics) because it showed so much soul and had sensuous/sexuality meshed in but it wasn’t over kill. I hope she gets away from being so provocative because I don’t like the message it sends. Love u Christina and I’m still going to see u if this tour doesn’t get cancelled too!!
