Iconic songbird Christina Aguilera is planning to bring her studded diaper back to the swiveling chair for another year: According to The Hollywood Reporter, after taking a year off to work on promoting her album Lotus (which, yikes, didn’t work out very well for her, did it?), the Legend Of The United States is in talks to return to The Voice for a fifth season — and rumor has it that she’s asking for $12 million.
While, as THR notes, there’s been a positive response to new coaches Usher and Shakira, Legendtina’s three-season reign on the show was unrivaled — and, diplomatically, she’s encountered much more success as a coach on The Voice than she has as a recording artist as of late, the success of her Pitbull collab “Feel This Moment” notwithstanding. While Aguilera has managed to notch a dance hit with “Let There Be Love,” mainstream radio success as a solo artist has continued to elude her, and she may be better off returning to where she’s now loved best.
Whether or not she can really command $12 million seems suspect, but if so: Stack that paper, Christina, and let there be love.
