Maroon 5 frontman, Adam Levine, was pressured to announce an apology to his country after a comment he made in his judge seat during a live segment on the hit show The Voice US.
After two contestants were eliminated from his team on The Voice the other night, Adam Levine muttered “I hate this country” in utter frustration. Many US viewers were offended by the unpatriotic remark and complained to the network.
After the show aired, Levine turned to Twitter to reassure the public the light-hearted intentions behind the comment by tweeting definitions of ‘joke’, ‘misunderstood’ and other similar words. Despite his online efforts, the continous uproar left Levine no choice but to publically apologise and clarify the tone behind the comment.
“I obviously love my country very much and my comments last night were made purely out of frustration,” Levine confesses to popular daily magazine US Weekly. “Being a part of The Voice, I am passionately invested in my team and want to see my artists succeed. Last night’s elimination of Judith and Sarah was confusing and downright emotional for me and my comments were made based on my personal dissatisfaction with the results.”
Moral of the story: Never challenge an American crowd’s patriotism…especially on live television.
What do you guys think? Was America too hard on Adam Levine or did he bring this on himself? Let us know below!
Are you getting tired of Nicki Minaj and her criticism on American Idol?
No need to worry anymore because the pop star has announced that she’ll be parting from the beloved series after rumours were being passed around of the show planning to axe the entire judging panel in order to try and boost ratings.
Original judge, Randy Jackson, also confirmed of departing from the show after judging countless performances for 12 years since its debut back in 2001.
Along with Minaj and Jackson, other celebrity TV judges are also following suit.
Shakira and Usher will be saying farewell to their judge seats on the hit-show The Voice, however, the show plans on re-unitung the original judge panel members Cee-Lo Green and Christina Aguilera with Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.
Kelly Rowland and Mexican superstar, Paulina Rubio will also join the US show The X Factor to replace famous popstar Britney Spears and L.A.
