Season 4 of The Voice hasn’t even started yet, but apparently judges Shakira and Blake Shelton are already butting heads. Just ask their co-star Adam Levine. While on The Ellen Degeneres Show, the pop star who slammed critics over Christina Aguilera’s weight gain, revealed that the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer and country star already have their differences.

“She’s so sweet,” he told Ellen. “The only thing is, Shakira and Blake have a hard time because they don’t understand each other’s language. And even though Blake is speaking English, surprisingly enough, he just says ‘What are you talking about? What are you even saying? I don’t even know.’”

Adam also admitted, “They just don’t understand the accents. It’s funny.”

Weird, we are sure Shakira is also speaking in English during the tapings. No entendemos, we’ve been able to understand the Colombian singer just fine over the years! At least she has been getting along with co-judges Adam and Usher.

Do you consider the language barrier offensive? Watch Adam Levine's interview on Ellen below and let us know what you think!
