Levine, 33, even goes so far as to stand up for Aguilera, 31, who has been the object of criticism for her weight. He says the naysayers should "grow up.""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 says. "She gets a lot and it pisses me off. Of course I have her back and of course I defend her."Aguilera herself recently spoke out about her body, telling 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."
Good for her. First, for showing what it means to own yourself, and secondly for refusing to apologize. She has gained weight, but not so much that she's a health risk or unsafe. She doesn't owe the world a perfect ass forever. Why would anyone feel she has to explain this phase of her life? I say she's worked out her entire life, if she wants to laze a bit and enjoy carbs with her new motherhood, so be it.
