The Maroon 5 frontman said it's the one day when MTV pretends to care about music and MTV tweeted back a cool response.
There is one person who would be in the black list of this year's MTV Video Music Awards. Adam Levine of Maroon 5 has slammed the award show on Twitter, writing "The VMA's. one day a year when MTV pretends to still care about music. I'm drawing a line in the sand. f*ck you VMA's."
Levine's band are not nominated this year but won a Moonman in 2004 for Best New Artist. Levine and his bandmates still attended the 2007 ceremony in Las Vegas. The "The Voice" mentor, however, did not regret his bold statement, tweeting an hour later, "Still waiting to have my "Jerry Macguire mission statement moment of deep regret…' Not happening. Phew!"
Then he explained, "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 to his tweet, "Soooo you'll be tuning in at 9/8C tomorrow right? BTW, bonus points if you TwitPic your 2004 Moonman!"
