Christina Aguilera Wants To Further Her Acting Career By Playing A Crackhead, Says She Knows She's Hard To Work With
It almost looks like Christina Aguilera will not be returning for the fifth season of The Voice. The singer recently confirmed she will stay out for the fourth season so that she can focus on her music career and tour around the world but now it seems she also wants to get back into acting and if the right role comes along, The Voice could be be history for Xtina.
