Adam Levine’s Mouth Lands Him in Hot Water After ‘I Hate This Country’ Rant

Game show drama makes all the wrong kind of headlines for Maroon 5 frontman

Oh no. Say it ain’t so.

Adam Levine, the hunky mouthpiece on NBC’s The Voice and the leading man for Maroon 5, is now embroiled in a world of Dixie Chicks funk after he expressed his dismay over America’s voting choices this week when two of his female vocalists were giving the boot from his team. Surely it was shocking to see crowd favorite Judith Hill and country girl Sarah Simmons eliminated from the show, but Levine’s comments may be the biggest shock of all.

Like a freak of nature, his reaction to the news – delivered out of a quick impulse sense of humor – revealed him to be unpatriotic, at least in that moment. He muttered “I hate this country” during their elimination. He took to his Twitter account to clarify some things and to clear the air that he was misunderstood.














While searching for redemption, the English lesson from Webster’s textbook seemed apropos. But that simply wasn’t enough.

Voters choose to keep Amber Carrington in this season’s competition of The Voice, sending two of Levine’s vocalists Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons (on far right) home.

Levine spoke with Us Weekly to express the passion he has for the competition, and that his off-the-cuff remarks were not meant to be taken seriously. “I obviously love my country very much and my comments last night were made purely out of frustration,” Levine told 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.” He now vows to do everything he can to make his remaining team member country singer Amber Carrington the winner of this season. Once again, that fate will be left up to the voters. If this dark cloud looms over the competition, conservatives with a lack of sense of humor will definitely be pulling for the other contestants.

Levine is no stranger to tweeting his rougher-than-tough opinions. Check out some of his most outrageous comments and his peculiar food for thought in this write-up  by Entertainment Weekly.

Oh, this love has taken a major toll on us all.

So what do you think?
Bad timing on Levine’s part?
Does America lack a sense of humor?
