Blake Says He Loves Being on The Voice, But . . .
"Something's gotta give at some point," he says.
Blake Shelton starts taping a second 2012 season of NBC's The Voice in just a week or two. And Blake tells reporters he loves it—but two seasons a year might be too much in the long run.
"At some point, something's gotta give at some point," Blake says. "And I don't like it. I've been very vocal with the network and Mark Burnett's production company. It's like, 'Man, this sucks.'"
Blake will return with the other three artists, Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green.
"The reason that you want the four of us is because we're viable artists right now, current. And we can't do both if we do back-to-back seasons," he said.
"I've been hammering them about it, but we are gonna do this fall. We've already committed to that . . . and I look forward to it. I love it, and I can't imagine not being a part of The Voice ever.
"I mean, I'd love to do it from now on, but it just needs to work in a way that I can still [tour] and do that at the same time. So, something's gotta give, you know."
