"It's not my year [to have the kids], so I'll be in London doing [The Voice U.K.], because I'm a coach," Rossdale told ET at the A Place Called Home Gala in Los Angeles on Thursday. "I commute. When I don't have my kids, I go to London."
While he might not get to celebrate with his three sons -- Kingston, 10, Zuma, 8, and Apollo, 2 -- Rossdale says he still wants to instill in them the spirit of giving back. Specifically, with the A Place Called Home organization, which works to provide at-risk youth with a secure, positive family environment.
"It's a fantastic charity. I'm looking forward to getting my children involved in some of the things they're doing over Christmas," he shared. "Because, you know, for all of us who are lucky enough to have made these lives for ourselves, our children don't get the perspective that maybe we grew up with."
"So organizations like this, who do such great work for the inner cities, South Central L.A., my kids need to know about that stuff, so that's why I'm here," he added.
Rossdale is also gearing up to work with Jay Z and his Roc Nation label, which the rocker called "one of the greatest honors."
"I've joined the company and [I'm] trying to write some songs for myself and for other people and really move into that whole world," Rossdale shared. "The power of Roc Nation is undeniable."
