CeeLo recently revealed the reason behind why he left The Voice. 

“It easily and quickly became a job,” CeeLo says in an interview with UsWeekly. “Very, very obligating… Taxing and tiring… I still tip my hat to Adam [Levine] and Blake [Shelton] and those guys who continuously do it, but I think I ran my course there just naturally.

“Amicably, we parted ways,” he adds. “I’ve got some very great memories there. It really has everything to do with me having the leverage to go elsewhere and be a success as well.”

During the interview, CeeLo also offered advice for those who remain with The Voice.

“Just kind of pace yourself,” he says. “Find a happy space… Just find it enjoyable, and as long as you’re passionate about discovering new talent and really helping people and encouraging them to be themselves and live out loud and follow their dreams, then you should have no problem.”

The Voice earned an Emmy nomination today (July 10).
