“[I’m] trying to be an example and speaking up about it,” the 35-year-old singer told ET’s Sophie Schillaci ahead of Monday's live episode. “Men have run the world for a while and this is the reason we don’t have another female coach because the odds are always kind of against us.”
“Next year though, finally, [we’ll have] two women together,” Aguilera said, referring to Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys joining Adam Levine and Blake Shelton in The Voice’s signature red chairs for season 11. “Kick their asses, girls!”
Aguilera says she’s also raising her 8-year-old son, Max, with the intention that he’ll “respect women.”
“I tell him sometimes after a hard day’s work, I’m like, ‘Babe, always be respectful of women. Please! Mama’s going through it,’” she said. “But he’s just great, actually. He’s really great.”
Aguilera also hinted that a possible collaboration with Porter could be in the works.
“I would totally be down for that,” she says. “I love her. I adore her. She’s just great and we had so much fun even collaborating for our duet [on Monday’s show] that for sure, it’s something we would like to do again.”
The Voice crowns its season 10 winner on Tuesday, May 24 on NBC.
