Christina Aguil­era’s new al­bum ti­tle says it all: Lib­er­a­tion. Two years af­ter she left The Voice, the “Beau­ti­ful” singer, 37, is open­ing up about why she needed to break free of the hit sing­ing com­pe­ti­tion show. “I didn’t get into this busi­ness to be a tele­vi­sion show host and to be given all these [rules],” she re­cently told Bill­board. “You re­al­ize it’s not about music. It’s about mak­ing good TV mo­ments and mas­sag­ing a story.” So the song­bird is get­ting back to her roots with her first stu­dio al­bum since 2012’s Lo­tus and her first tour in a decade. “She spent most of her time on The Voice feel­ing trapped, and she’s happy to leave it all be­hind,” a music in­dus­try source tells Life & Style. “She’s a great singer and en­ter­tainer, first and fore­most, and she never wants to be com­pla­cent again. She’s never go­ing back to The Voice. She’s mak­ing that very clear.”

Christina was a coach on The Voice on and off from 2011 to 2016, “but she was suf­fo­cat­ing in the TV en­vi­ron­ment,” says a source.
