Adam Levine apologizes for saying 'I hate this country' on 'The Voice'
Don't go thinking that the U.K. has the market cornered on outrage: Adam Levine on Wednesday apologizing for saying "I hate this country" on Tuesday's episode of The Voice. Well, after his team members Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons were canned for lack of viewer votes, you'd think he be justified in saying that.
"I obviously love my country very much and my comments last night were made purely out of frustration," Levine told Us Weekly, stating what should be obvious. "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."
Of course, we're talking about a television viewership that shares a kindred spirit with the British one that thought Jennifer Lopez wearing a bodysuit was too much for prime time, so let's keep everything in perspective. Maybe Adam should have just said, "I hate the English-speaking TV viewership of the world." That woulda got him off the hook.
