Adam Levine may have quickly leapt to defend his Voice contestant Tony Lucca Monday after Christina Aguilera trashed his "99 Problems" performance, but the Maroon 5 front man hasn't totally written Aguilera off.
"I just want to say, I love you Christina," Levine told Aguilera after she dissed Lucca Monday, slamming his final performance of Jay-Z's hip-hop hit as "derogatory towards women."
"Just to clarify, just so you all know, the intent behind the song…we talked about this for hours. The '… ain't one' [lyric] is life getting at you, things bringing you down," Levine reasoned, justifying his and Lucca's decision to go ahead with the controversial track, which originally included the lyrics 'bitch ain't one.' "We're not referring to women, we're referring to everything."
