It’s an exciting time in pop icon Christina Aguilera‘s professional life. The singer is appearing on the third season of the NBC reality singing competition show, The Voice, that she helped to make a smash hit and she also has a new album ready for release. Xtina talked about both projects during her appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
During the interview, Christina talked about her brand new music video for her newest single, “Your Body,” and says she had so much fun playing the feisty, seductress character in the clip. Of the album, she says the title “Lotus” (due in stores on November 13) represents “the unbreakable flower that withstands the test of time. Through the harshest of weather conditions and tough surroundings, it thrives and survives and stays strong.”
Xtina also talked about her future on The Voice and explains her decision to take a hiatus during season four. “I think what makes the show really special and why people appreciate it is the four of us are artists. And we have to go out there and we have to experience our fans, do our shows, record our records and be artists ourselves so that we can be great coaches,” she said. “So it’s important for me to take a moment especially since it is now back to back seasons like twice a year.” Aguilera says she’ll definitely be back but that for now, she has to “fulfill my creative soul.”
Other topics Christina covered included her loss on Star Search as a kid, her new The Voice team namely cutie Dez Duron’s return and more. Watch the full interview below.
