Christina Aguilera

This month, power vocalist and pop superstar Christina Aguilera stars on the November cover of REDBOOK. In the issue, the coach of NBC’s smash hit, The Voice, opens up about her co-stars on the reality singing competition, her decision to leave last season and her new workout philosophy.

Why she left The Voice:

I needed to decompress, wind down the clock and just breathe. I needed to find out who I am outside of that red chair.

On why working out is not her priority:

If I have to choose between working out and spending time with my son after a hard day, it’s not even a question.

On how she looks at her co-stars on The Voice as family:

I know these guys so well, they really are like my brothers, no joke. There’s a 12 year-old-boy in me who loves to come out and play with them.
