Celebuzz sizes up Team Christina and Team Cee Lo.
It wasn’t a smooth start between Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera on NBC’s The Voice, but the tables have turned. Levine defended his counterpart during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday.

“There were some squabbles and things like that, ” Levine confessed. “But, we’re fine now – very, very close.”

So close in fact, that Levine defended Aguilera after seeing criticisms about her weight.

Levine quipped to naysayers of Aguilera’s curvy figure, “Leave her alone.”

“She should be left alone,” he added. “No one should bother or [heckle] her about her weight. That’s it. That’s how I feel about that.”

When asked about how the Maroon 5 singer feels about the newest judges for the third and fourth season, Shakira and Usher, Levine admitted that it’s been “confusing” at times.

“I’m cheating on the original fabulous four a little bit. I remember thinking to myself, ‘I love [Usher and Shakira] but I miss Cee Lo and Christina.”
