A Tradition Unlike Any Other: Adam Levine Complaining About Coachella
Posted by Newson 04/15/2012 at 12:44 PM
Being so enormously too cool for school can’t be easy, but Maroon 5 frontman and Voice coach Adam Levine manages to keep on trucking. Levine caused some mild controversy back in September when he called out the Video Music Awards, calling them the “one day a year when MTV pretends to care about music” and concluding “fuck you vmas.” Now, Levine has a new source for his scorn: The Coachella Music Festival. By most accounts, the first two days of the festival have been a decent time, but Levine is not impressed, tweeting:
Only thing better than going to coachella? NOT going to coachella!!!

Burrrrn. Some cursory Googling reveals that this isn’t even the first time that Levine has sonned Coachella over the Bluebird. Levine tweeted the following around the same time last year:
It’s as if coachella means “place I need to go to find out what I’m supposed to be into”. Maybe I’m just bitter cause ive never been invited

You think, Adam? Something tells us that M5 wouldn’t necessarily fit in to the lineup so well, though maybe at Coachella 2027, Maroon 5 will get some sort of soft-rock-fetishist comeback push. Looking forward to the annual spurned-girlfriend tweets until then.
