Adding to the singing competition’s long list of changes, Shakira announced that she is stepping away from “The Voice.”

After CeeLo Green revealed he is finished with the NBC series and Christina Aguilera stated Gwen Stefani is her replacement, the “Hips Don’t Lie” beauty is ready to move on too.

"This was always a temporary thing for me to do," Shakira told reporters. "For now, no, I don't have any plans of coming back."

The mother of son Milan said that her busy schedule to the reason behind her exit from “The Voice.” She gave birth to her baby boy last year and just dropped her 10th studio album in March, so she definitely has a lot on her plate.

"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."

When asked if she would consider returning if NBC asked her back, she replied, “You never know.”
