After a couple of successful seasons on the hit singing contest show “The Voice,” former show judge CeeLo Green announced that he was moving on earlier this year. In an interview with UsWeekly, the Goodie MoB member shared why he thought it was time to leave.

“It easily and quickly became a job,” CeeLo says. “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.”

CeeLo makes it clear that there was no hard feelings towards the show.

“Amicably, we parted ways,” he shared. “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.”

He shared some advice for anyone who may be considering taking the plunge and becoming a “Voice” judge.

“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.”
