Christina Aguilera felt trapped on The Voice

Christina Aguilera felt trapped on The Voice

"I'm sorry to my own reflection, I'm sorry for putting you down", she says in a voiceover. "I've stepped so far away from that little girl, and if that means going away for a little while and figuring out who you are again and what you need to say, then that's what you need to do".

Speaking to Billboard, she said: "I was longing for freedom". "You realize it's not about music". It's about making good TV moments and massaging a narrative. The singer-songwriter just slammed the reality singing competition after confirming that she's never returning to be one of the coaches ever again. After filming shows, Aguilera shares that she would take off her makeup and blast music to try and snap herself out of the "tv mode". "It was my only kind of outlet", she said.

Despite her lack of happiness in doing the series, Aguilera shared that she continued to be a coach for the sake of her children: Max, 10, and Summer, 3.

Christina then begins talking about her past and gets emotional while recounting how her mom gave up her dreams to be with her father. The Zooey Grossman-directed visual includes the pop singer lapping up milk, singing through glitter-covered lips, and drenched in a clear viscous goo as she asks her partner to "pick up your speed", because it is indeed what she needs.

She concludes the short with a message to her younger self: "I'm sorry for covering your freckles, I'm sorry for hiding your scars, I'm sorry that I put you down", she laments. "I'm looking forward to getting back out and actually showing my kids what Mommy really does!" The Voice provided a cushy job that let her and her family stay in one place. "Christina was an incredibly valuable member of "The Voice" for many seasons and we appreciate all she did for the show".

The "Accelerate" singer admits she is a different person on stage to the mother her kids know at home. "When I'm onstage, there's not a bigger high, when I'm in connection with my voice and my heart and my soul", she gushes. "But at the end [of a performance], I want to wipe it all off, get in my sweatpants, make silly noises with my kids and have someone comfort and cuddle me".
