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?

Ok…have you really ever read or listened to this guy? he is an arrogant jerk. does anyone really think he could sing? come on folks….really sing or is he just image? i think the frangrance stuff speaks volumes to what he is all about….basically a jerk with a big ego.
