Adam Levine Issues Statement, Totally Loves His Country

by at . Comments

A few Tweets apparently were not enough for Adam Levine.

After being caught muttering "I hate this country" during last night's Voice results show, the Maroon 5 singer listed a number of dictionary definitions on his Twitter feed, all of which relayed the same message:

He was just making a joke.

But with the backlash continuing, The Voice coach has now issued an official statement through NBC:

“I obviously love my country very much and 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.”

Can we all move on now, people, and focus on the important thing here: Judith and Sarah were eliminated?!?


He made a mistake. He was upset/ticked that two of his singers were sent home. If you were him, how would you feel if that happened to you?


America is being too sensitive over an american hating his country a little bit?!? come on..


michelle is correct. adam is a great American. it is a remark anyone could make when pissed off. how ridiculous people are. anything to start vile gossip. adam, you are wonderful. and the intelligent people know exactly what you meant when you said that remark. trust me, we know you love this wonderful America.


He's just a sore loser because he won't be winning this year...again! I wasn't a fan of Judith or big loss!


I can't believe this is getting press nor can I believe that people are upset over a throwaway remark. Adam could easily move, if he really disliked the good ol' USA, but that's not the case. It was a remark, thrown out by him, in frustration. He's not a bomb carrying, threat to our nation...he's an amazing singer, and lately a judge on The Voice and it makes me angry at American's who take this kind of remark seriously. People...levity. Have some fun. Let go of the anger!

Seriously, I'm so tired of this paparazzi garbage. Anything to get paper/page/channel views with zero consideration for the target of the topic...and always /always/ blown out of proportion and context. Seriously people, get over it already. When exactly did this country get so carebear-sensitive over everything? Grow some skin, some common sense, and take things with the grain of salt they were intended to be taken with...sheesh.
