Don’t look for Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine this Sunday during the MTV Video Music Awards, giving his hatred for the event it’s likely he won’t be in attendance.
The lead singer and co-host of the popular NBC talent show The Voice had this to say about MTV’s attempt to still be relevant in the music world:
“The VMAs [are the] one day a year when MTV pretends to still care about music. I’m drawing a line in the sand. Fuck you, VMAs.”
Levine later went on to add:
“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 responded with a tweet of their own:
“Soooo you’ll be tuning in at 9/8C tomorrow right? (BTW, bonus points if you TwitPic your 2004 Moonman!)”
Not surprisingly a bunch of other music artists tweeted their support for Adam who made a very valid point.
The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards will air live in Los Angeles tonight @ 9 PM ET.
Do you think the MTV VMAs are still relevant? If nothing else I watch for the musical acts and could care less what MTV thinks about musical artists they barely have any contact with as they focus on Jersey Shore and pregnant teenagers.
