Christina Aguilera knows what she's meant to do, and the time is now.
Well, after this season of The Voice ends, that is.
There's a rumor the "Woo Hoo" singer will take the stage during the show's finale to sing a duet with a Whitney Houston hologram, but one thing's for sure... after that she'll dive back into her creative cocoon to continue working on her next studio album.
"Right after I leave my coaching duties, I will go back into my artistic self and unleash what I've been dying to for so long," Aguilera told E! this week.
Ellen is also advertising an appearance from Aguilera on May 16 where she'll reveal some exciting news about the forthcoming project.
Earlier this year, Aguilera mentioned she was "really focused on my music right now," despite DJ Premier, who is working on the new record, saying fans would need to wait awhile for the forthcoming cut because she is "not in album mode right now."
Not now, but soon.
