There will be love!
And Adam Levine wants America to know that he has nothing but admiration for the US-of-A, despite making an un-patriotic remark on “The Voice” on Tuesday night after his contestants, Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons were voted off.
The Maroon 5 musician muttered “I hate this country” after two of his strong singers got the boot, but America opted to save his third — country singer Amber Carrington.
The statement was picked up under the hot microphone on live television.
After facing a barrage of abuse on Twitter, with some people calling for him be to fired from his position as judge on the NBC show, while others absurdly called for him to deported (he was born and raised in LA), the 34-year-old singer blames the comment on his passion for his contestants and their talent.
“I obviously love my country very much and my comments last night were made purely out of frustration,” he explained to Us Weekly on Wednesday.
“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,” he said.
“I am very connected to my artists and know they have long careers ahead, regardless of their outcome on the show,” he continued.
And there you have it! Is that a good enough explanation to silence the public outcry?
