It became a job: Cee Lo Green on decision to leave The Voice

Los Angeles: Rapper Cee Lo Green says the reason he decided to leave singing reality show `The Voice` was because of the workload.

The `Crazy` hit-maker announced that he would not return to the singing competition in February for its seventh season, reported Us Magazine.

"It easily and quickly became a job," the 40-year-old said.

"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. 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," Green said.

Pharrell Williams will replace Green as a coach on the competition, alongside Levine, Usher, and fellow new recruit Gwen Stefani.
