Boy, give a guy a hit TV show and a chart-topping single and all of a sudden he thinks the world is his for the flipping-off. A few months after Adam Levine (of Maroon 5 and The Voice) made headlines for tweeting obscenity-laden truthbombs at MTV for the charade he perceived the Video Music Awards to be (“one day a year when MTV pretends to still care about music…fuck you VMA’s“). Now, another cultural institution has drawn Levine’s ire—for a thus-unspecified reason, though the Huffington Post may see a connection with how in previous tweets he “pointed out that Kelsey Grammer and Chelsea Handlers’ names sounded alike and notified fans that he was listening to early 90s hip hop on his way to Valencia”—and once again, he has taken to the bluebird to vent his bile:
BOOM. Adam Levine, laying it on the line, pulling no punches like his name was That Guy Who Just Beat Up Shia LaBoeuf in Vancouver. In case you didn’t get the full impact of his 140-characters-or-less diatribe against the right-wing-leaning TV news channel, here it is a couple more times.
Got it? Yes? Well, how about one more time just to be on the safe side.
And who says that punk rock is dead, exactly? Maybe you’re just not looking for it on the right major networks. Ever think of that, tough guy?
