Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera haven’t always been friendly with each other on The Voice, but Levine says that it’s like a brother-sister relationship and that he wants people to stop talking about her.
Christina Aguilera has had to defend herself a lot lately, over her weight and how she has acted in her career. But an unlikely supporter has come to her defense against her critics — her The Voice co-mentor, Adam Levine.
“People shouldn’t say those kind of things, because, f—k you! Come on guys, grow up!” Adam Levine told WetPaint, according to The Huffington Post. “It pisses me off, and of course I have her back, of course I defend her. It’s not nice to just have your bread and butter be trashing other people. That’s bullying.”
The Maroon 5 singer has been in the public eye for almost ten years now, and he feels he understands what Aguilera is going through. He said he is also attacked and likens it to what he has seen happen to Aguilera.
“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,” he told People magazine.
But Aguilera doesn’t seem to be taking the comments too personally. She has been through a lot since being a Mouseketeer as a child, and she seems to really like who she is now.
“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 told People. “I embrace my body, and I embrace everything about myself.”
The comments might come as a surprise to a lot of The Voice viewers because of the fights Levine and Aguilera seem to have had on the show, but Levine said that was all for show.
“The fights that everyone thought we were having were fictional,” Levine told People. “We never hated each other. We never were having some sort of secret battles that everyone thought we were having.”
