As if we didn’t love Adam Levine enough already.
The Voice coach recently sat down with Ellen DeGeneres to talk about his hit talent show, but something very obviously struck a nerve in the singer during their chat—Christina Aguilera’s weight.
“You actually defended her, I read, when someone was making a comment about her weight,” Ellen said to the Maroon 5 frontman of Christina’s criticized curves.
“Yeah, just leave her alone,” he said firmly. “It’s a very basic thing. Just leave her alone. She should be left alone and no one should bother her or haggle her over her weight— or anything that she does or says.”
In recent months, Xtina has been increasingly scrutinized for her weight gain, but if there’s one Hollywood star who approves of her curvy bod, it’s Adam.
"There are two kinds of men,” Adam told Details magazine earlier this year. “There are men who are f**king misogynist pigs, and then there are men who really love women, who think they're the most amazing people in the world. And that's me.”
Check out Adam and Christina on The Voice Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
