Adam Levine Silent On Twitter After VMAs

Aug 29, 2011 08:20 AM

LevineVMAsTwitter230.jpgMaroon 5 frontman and The Voice coach Adam Levine started a Twitter feud with MTV before the Video Music Awards on Sunday, but post-show he's got nothing to say!

The feud started on Saturday with this exchange:

    Levine: "the VMA’s. one day a year when MTV pretends to still care about music. I’m drawing a line in the sand. [expletive] you VMA’s."

    MTV: "Soooo you’ll be tuning in at 9/8C tomorrow right? (BTW, bonus points if you TwitPic your 2004 Moonman!)"

    Levine: "still waiting to have my ‘jerry macguire mission statement moment of deep regret…’ not happening. phew! ... i may be a pop singer. but every once in a while the angsty teenager in me just blurts out some raw honesty. it’s a reflex."

The VMAs ended around 11:15 PST Sunday night, and Levine has yet to give a review.

The show opened with a performance by Lady Gaga (dressed as her male alter ego), and included performances from Jay-Z and Kanye West, Beyonce, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne and a tribute to Amy Winehouse ... along with a whole lot of the Jersey Shore cast sprinkled in. Tell us in our poll below -- what did you think of the show?

Adam Levine: I Don't Mind If People Think I'm Gay

Aug 16, 2011 08:15 AM

adam-levine-230.jpgAdam Levine is embracing his sexuality ... even if fans think he's gay.

The 32-year-old rocker admits to Out magazine:

    "If people didn't think there was a small chance I was gay, then I wouldn't be doing my job very well. I wouldn't be the front man of a band if that question hadn't come up at some point."

Levine says that some of the greatest rockers have had their sexuality questions including Mick Jagger and David Bowie. Although he says there's "no way to hide my straightness," the Voice judge does say he can admit if a guy looks good. Adam adds:

    "I'm extremely comfortable in my sexuality. So I can think, 'Oh, that's a good-looking dude.' Acknowledging that someone's attractive and wanting to [sleep with them] are two different things."

Sounds like a true rockstar!

Adam Levine is loved by both men and women, and after checking out his sexy, lean and tatted up rocker bod in the new issue of Out, we're not surprised!

The Maroon 5 singer opened up about growing up with a younger gay brother. He tells the mag:

    “I can single-handedly dispel any ideas that sexuality is acquired. Trust me, you’re born with it. My brother is gay, and we knew when he was two. We all knew.”

As for how his family handled it, The Voice star adds:

    “We all really wanted to provide some cushion for him and constantly let him know that it’s OK. A lot of people don’t want their kid to be gay and will fight it at all costs. But I’ve got news for you—it’s a losing f***ing battle. The more you fight it, the more f****d-up your kid’s gonna be. You’ve just gotta embrace it from the beginning. That’s the only way to deal with it as a family. Otherwise, you’re just screwing yourself over, and you’re gonna make your kid miserable.”

Well said, Adam.

Cee-Lo Green And Adam Levine In Talks To Join Mark Burnett Singing Competition

Feb 23, 2011 01:04 PM

ceeadam460WM.jpg

Survivor producer Mark Burnett has his eyes on Cee-Lo Green and Maroon 5's Adam Levine to join his upcoming singing competition The Voice.

The show, to be aired on NBC, focuses on a singer's talent, rather than their looks.

As for how The Voice works, the judges make a decision on the singer after hearing their voice only, then once they decide on whether or not to keep the contestant, their chair swivels around ... allowing them to see the singer's appearance. The show, based on a Dutch program, is hoping to attract a similar audience as American Idol.

In addition to the F**k You singer and Levine being looked at for a judges spot, Burnett is also reportedly wooing Christina Aguilera.

Other singers that have been considered: Mary J. Blige, Enrique Iglesias and Lenny Kravitz.
