LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Don’t expect to see Adam Levine rubbing elbows with Britney Spears and Beyonce at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles.
The Maroon 5 frontman and “The Voice” mentor took to Twitter over the weekend slamming the annual awards show.
“the VMA’s. one day a year when MTV pretends to still care about music. I’m drawing a line in the sand. [expletive] you VMA’s,” Adam wrote on Saturday.
He also told his Twitter followers not to expect him to backtrack on his outspoken Tweet.
“still waiting to have my ‘jerry macguire mission statement moment of deep regret…’ not happening. phew!,” he wrote in another Tweet, followed by, “i may be a pop singer. but every once in a while the angsty teenager in me just blurts out some raw honesty. it’s a reflex.”
MTV hoped that the singer, whose band, Maroon 5, took home the Best New Artist Moonman award in 2004, would at least watch the big show.
“Soooo you’ll be tuning in at 9/8C tomorrow right? (BTW, bonus points if you TwitPic your 2004 Moonman!),” the network Tweeted to the singer.
