Adam Levine on Perceived Adam Lambert Diss: No Apology Necessary!

by at . Comments

Adam Levine may have angered countless Adam Lambert fans on Tuesday night, but the Maroon 5 frontman isn't sorry.

That's because he says he was simply being honest in his assessment of Nakia, a contestant on The Voice who covered Lambert's "Whataya Want From Me." Praising the aspiring singer, Levine said:

“I’m pretty sure, although I’ve never heard that song before, that you probably sang it better than the person that sang it originally."

It was definitely an odd phrasing - if you're unfamiliar with the original artist, why go out of your way to say Nakia sang it better than this unknown individual? - but Levine said it was the truth, not a passive aggressive jab.

"I had honestly never heard that song before," he Tweeted yesterday. "I thought that @nakia made me like a song that would have otherwise fallen flat. I'm NOT sorry.. No disrespect intended for @adamlambert... I honesty had never heard the song before. I'm not one to take cheap shots like that."

Case closed? You tell us: Do you think Levine meant his critique as a diss of Lambert?

I could have cared less he didn't know the song, you can't expect him to know every song ( even if it is on the grammy C/d with his song).Ceelo just got done saying the name of the song and by Adam Lambert and he acted like he never heard of him.The more I thought about it I just don't think Adam Levine was paying attention to the segment before his comment, not being arrogant.JMO @ Caron, I think Adam Lambert wished we would have just shut up.lol

More importantly, what did Adam think. Has he been asked to comment?

Nakia doesn't come close to Adam Lambert, can't even touch him.
