Who blew smoke up Adam’s moonman’s @$$?!?
While many of the world’s biggest pop stars are getting ready to appear at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards tomorrow night (Aug. 28), Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine is flipping the middle finger to the network’s long-running ceremony.
Levine’s anti-VMA rant comes seven years after Maroon 5 was given the Best New Artist trophy for the music video to their hit single “This Love.” In 2004, the group trumped artists like Kanye West, Jet and Yellowcard for the Best New Artist trophy. Maroon 5 has yet to perform at the MTV VMA’s, and are not nominated for any awards this year.
“The Voice” judge also echoes a softer plea from Justin Timberlake, who implored MTV to air more music videos while accepting an award at the 2007 MTV VMAs. “Play more damn videos,” Timberlake, still fresh off the success of “Futuresex/LoveSounds,” said at the time. “We don’t want to see the Simpsons on reality television. Play more videos!”
White people have spoken MTV, bring back music videos!!
