If you watch NBC’s The Voice – you might have heard Adam Levine say he hates America. Apparently he assumed he was off the air – but his mic was on and he was expressing his frustration because 2 of the contestants he was coaching were just eliminated – by America. The bigger problem is how he is dealing with it. People immediately started tweeting about it – suggesting he leave the country that made his famous and rich. Initially he tried to laugh off the whole thing – tweeting dictionary definitions of words like ‘joke’ ‘misunderstanding’ but it just got worse!!
So NBC had to step in and made him formally apologize.
“I obviously love my country very much,” Levine avowed. “My comments last night were made purely out of frustration. 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. I am very connected to my artists and know they have long careers ahead, regardless of their outcome on the show.”
you can watch the whole thing here – he says it about the 1:14 mark.
