Whether it’s sexual tension as Cee Lo Green says, or just playful banter, one thing’s clear: Adam Levine definitely has his Voice co-star Christina Aguilera‘s back! In a recent interview with shock jock and new America’s Got Talent judge Howard Stern, the Maroon 5 front man came to Aguilera’s defense when the conversation turned to her weight. What did he say? Keep reading for all the details.
Christina Aguilera’s weight has been media fodder for many months, but as the Grammy-winning singer says, “As long as I’m happy in my own skin, that’s all I need. I’m happy with where I’m at. I have a boyfriend that loves my body. I love my body.”
But apparently, Howard Stern’s not feeling the love.
During his show, the shock jock asked rocker and fellow NBC reality star Adam Levine about Aguilera’s new, fuller figure, saying, “Why do you think she’s got so heavy, is she upset? She used to be so f**king hot! And her clothes are too tight, am I right?”
Levine responded, “Her clothes are tight, she likes to wear tight clothes,” adding, “She clearly likes to talk about being comfortable with being a woman, and snapping her fingers and doing the whole [diva] thing.”
Stern then declared, “When you’re a plus sized woman, you can’t wear the tight clothes anymore,” but Adam quickly interrupted, “I wouldn’t go that far actually.”
Were Howard Stern’s comments about Christina Aguilera’s weight out of line, or is it to be expected from the controversial radio host? Did Levine do enough to defend Christina, or should he have said more? Share your thoughts below!
