Adam Levine is going to bat for his co-star, Christina Aguilera. "The Voice" judge defended Christina against criticisms about her recent weight gain.
Adam has equated the criticisms to "bullying" and said that that they need to "grow up."
As he explained, "It's not cool. I've never liked it. I think it's horrible and I'll totally defend [Christina] when people say things like that because it's no-one's business. 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."
XTina is trying not to let the criticisms get to her. As she told People, "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."
XTina is not the only star dealing with weight critics. Who else is tired of being called fat?
Don't call her "full-figured"! The "Mad Men" star interrupted an interview when the the interviewers asked, "You have been an inspiration as a full-figured woman; what is the most inspiring story you can remember?" When Christina deflected the question, the interviewer asked again.
Later, off-camera, Hendricks commented, "I think calling me full-figured is just rude."
This month, the "Girls" star showed up to a charity event wearing an oversized turquoise blouse and short shorts that made it look like she wasn't wearing wearing any pants.
After receiving some criticism for the ensemble, Lena pointed out what she saw as a double standard. As she explained, "If Olivia Wilde had gone to a party in . . . little shorts, she might have been on a 'weird dressed list' or been told her outfit was cute. I don't think a girl with tiny thighs would have received such no-pants attention."
The Girls Aloud singer is tired of her size 6 body being called fat. As she told Glamour UK, "You can't call someone who's a size 6 fat. An average woman is a size 10 to 12, so if you're calling me fat because I'm a size 6, and I have never ever been bigger than an 8, you're causing women some serious issues," Cheryl says. "When you're on the receiving end of it, it's nothing short of bullying in the workplace."
