Pop star, Christina Aguilera has been getting a lot of flack lately about her changing weight. But being the self-confident and secure woman she is, she just lets the comments roll off her back. However, fellow judge on The Voice, Adam Levine says, “it’s not cool; I think it’s horrible,” and “I’ll totally defend Christina.”
If you watch The Voice, you know Aguilera and Levine spar like brother and sister giving each other a hard time, but in actuality, they are friends. According to People, Levine said, “The fights that everyone thought we were having, were fictional. We never hated each other.” He added, “We never had these secret battles that everyone thought we were having.”
In fact, Levine actually stands up for Aguilera amid the criticisms surrounding her weight saying “grow up” to those who have a problem with Aguilera’s body. He explains, “The one thing about the culture right now, celebrity culture particularly, is people feel like they can just say nasty things about other people whether it’s Christina or whether it’s me,” Levine says. “She gets a lot and it p*sses me off. Of course I have her back and of course I defend her.”
Aguilera recently spoke out about her body saying, “Some people are afraid of change and [feel] that getting older is a bad thing, but I really love maturing and gaining wisdom. And the experience of being pregnant and having a child and seeing what a woman’s body can do is amazing.” She continues, “I’ve always been one to make it very clear, love me, or hate me, take it or leave it, this is who I am,” she says. “I embrace my body, and I embrace everything about myself. Coming full circle is a celebration of freedom and happiness because that’s what [new album] Lotus is representing. I’m embracing everything that I’ve grown to be and learned to be.”
It doesn’t much sound like Aguilera needs Levine’s help but it’s always nice to know you’re loved and supported and that a friend’s got your back.
