During a radio interview on Howard Stern's morning show, "The Voice" judge Adam Levine was mercilessly questioned about Christina Aguilera's weight issues and wardrobe decisions.

Stern wasted no time in questioning Levine on his fellow judge and competitor, Christina Aguilera.

"Why did she get so heavy? Is she upset?" Stern asked. According to Pop Crush, Levine responded to the question by rolling his eyes.

Stern also commented that the female singer wore her clothes too tight. Levine was careful about how he responded to the question.

"She clearly likes talking about being comfortable with being a woman," Levine stated, adding that Aguilera was at liberty to do whatever she wanted.

Stern then proceeded to call Aguilera "plus-sized."

"I wouldn't go that far," Levine said, still trying to avoid the conversation. However, Stern was relentless.

A fellow radio host chimed in to ask Stern if he thought Aguilera was a size twelve. Stern decided to ask Levine instead if he knew what size the female star was. Levine finally appeared to get upset.

"I am keeping my f------ mouth shut," the Maroon Five singer responded.

Christina Aguilera gave birth to her son, Max Liron Bratman, in Los Angeles on Jan. 12, 2008.

Stern has built a reputation on his offensive remarks.

In 2010, he referred to "Precious" star Gabourey Sidibe as an "enormous, fat black chick," a comment he refused to take back, insisting instead that the actress was in need of help.

While some are offended by the radio host, others find his humor appealing.

"I admire you trying, but I've spent a lot of time in strip clubs ... I was named 'Perv of the Year' three times in a row. ... That [act] didn't have sex appeal," Stern said to a contestant while judging on America's Got Talent.

The Examiner pinned the quote as one of the five funniest things he has said since being on the show.
