This genie in a bottle has been rubbed the WRONG way. Usually through a tangled web of contractual obligations stars reflect on previous projects like a Magic 8-Ball limited to the responses "It Is OK" and "Cannot Tell Now," but sexy songstress Christina Aguilera went IN on her stint on the reality singing competition The Voice. In the new issue of Billboard, Aguilera voices her frustration at being censored by the show's producers:
It became something that I didn’t feel was what I had signed up for in season one…You realize it’s not about music. It’s about making good TV moments and massaging a story…I didn’t get into this business to be a television show host and to be given all these [rules]…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.
And considering some of the bodytastic outfits we've seen Aguilera squeezed into, fashion censorship is not something we're co-signing either. This is about more than just self-expression. This is about cleavage and underboob. But the thirty-seven-year-old - who recently released her first single lead single in over a half decade - "Accelerate" - isn't stopping at The Voice, and also dishes to Billboard about working with energized dragon Kanye West on her new album:
I’ve always been a huge fan of Kanye…Outside of, you know, his controversial aspects, I just think he’s a great artist and musicmaker and beatmaker. The artists that he chooses to pluck from different walks of life are so interesting.
You want to, you know, expand on those "controversial aspects" Christina? JK. If you haven't already, check out the goopy goodness in her new video for "Accelerate" below.
