Eau de … eat crow? Adam Levine is likely feeling a little sheepish today after pal Christina Aguilera caught him contradicting himself on Twitter.

On Wednesday, the Maroon 5 singer announced plans for his first fragrances for men and women, both called 222. According to a release, the scents will “reflect [his] personality and style” and retail for $36-$65.

However, Aguilera must have a fabulous memory or a Twitter-savvy friend: Friday she Tweeted a link back to a March 2011 Tweet of Levine’s, which read, “I also would like to put an official ban on celebrity fragrances. Punishable by death from this point forward.”

“Haha @AdamLevine,” Aguilera wrote in reply. “What a difference a year makes …”

However, her detective work wasn’t totally mean-spirited; Levine’s fellow Voice mentor, who has several scents of her own, sent him her best wishes, too, writing, “Welcome to the celebrity fragrance family!” Tell us: Would you still consider buying Levine’s fragrances?

Sounds to me like he was all sorts of jealous that everyone else was gettings deals he couldn’t get so he had a big pout. Then when he got an offer he jumped on it. Sounds like he was a bit butthurt. Never really been a fan but didn’t dislike him either. But rants like that show a type of person I don’t care to support.

I don’t care what he said…I have never wanted to buy something just because a celebrity’s name is attached, BUT I would buy whatever he is selling. He is HOT. Love him on ‘The Voice’ and go see him every chance I can in concert. Recent concert in ATL with Train was AMAZING!! Tell me where to preorder!!
