Shakira is getting back to her music.
After coaching singers on The Voice for two seasons, the "Dare" crooner announced she'll be leaving the NBC reality competition show and not returning anytime soon. "This was always a temporary thing for me to do," Shakira said. "For now, no, I don't have any plans of coming back."
According to the Huffington Post, Shakira's busy schedule is the main reason for her early departure, considering she released her 10th studio album in March and is also mom to 15-month-old son Milan.
"Honestly, I've had a blast," Shakira said. "But right now, I have to go on with my life as an artist. I'm not really a TV celebrity and I have to prep a tour and also do other stuff, like being a mother."
Now that Gwen Stefani and Pharrell have both announced they'll be the new judges on the show next season, we can't help but wonder who will fill Shakira's seat.
