He shouldn't have had to do it, but good for Adam Levine. After Aguilera's weight has caused of a frenzy of fat blasting, Levine stepped up to say enough!
The singer, who is often seen bickering with Aguilera on The Voice, totally has her back when it comes to people picking on her for her weight. He told WetPaint this weekend that he believes it's "bullying" and that her critics should "grow up."
People shouldn’t say those kind of things, because, f—k you! Come on guys, grow up! 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.
Good for him. Too often it's left up to women to defend ourselves, so it's nice to see a man step forward and acknowledge just how vile such behavior is. He continued, "Sure, we may be confident, successful people who can take a punch, but it’s just not cool."
It's one thing to wonder if someone has a little baby bump, because we really want to know if they're pregnant. But it's an entirely different thing to just call people names and mock them for their weight.
Yes, Aguilera is in the public eye, and she should expect a certain amount of scrutiny, but she should also be able to expect a certain amount of human decency. She's a singer, and it's her talent that we should judge not her figure.
Besides, I think her figure still looks great. She's not stick thin, but neither are most women. And look how incredibly well she fills out her Halloween costume in the picture above. She's curvy and sexy, and fortunately, she knows it. She told People recently:
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. I embrace my body, and I embrace everything about myself.
Rock on Christina.
