Shakira could return to ‘The Voice’ – but not as a judge

Shakira might just return to American TV, but only for a visit.

The Colombian songstress told E! News that she is completely open to returning to “The Voice,” but don’t expect her to sit on the show’s red swivel chairs.

“Maybe to perform,” the 39-year-old said at the premiere of her new animated Disney flick “Zootopia.”

Shakira, who was a coach for two seasons alongside Adam Levine, Usher and Blake Shelton, admitted that she misses her fellow coaches, but left because “life had to move on.”

"I had to do other things," she said. "I had to take care of my baby. I got pregnant again. I've been operating among pacifiers and bottles and diapers and now I'm ready to make new music again. I'm really hungry and thirsty for it."

The “Hips don’t Lie” singer said the same thing to Spain’s El Pais newspaper a couple of weeks ago, though she refrained from revealing when a new album would be released.

“I live for music and in some way music lives in me,” she told El Pais. “I am made of this and for this. My every fiber. If I don’t sing and dance, I suffocate.”

Until then, her new song “Try Everything” is being featured on the “Zootopia” soundtrack.

"[It's] a song about being unafraid of your dreams and the size of your own dreams," she told ET Online, "and being able to fight for them and follow them."

The film hits theaters on March 4.
