Adam Levine Blasts the 2017 MTV VMAs As “Utterly Horrible”

Adam Levine isn’t afraid to voice his opinions, even when they might be unpopular — frankly, it’s one of the reasons he’s made his mark as a judge on The Voice. And he’s been particularly vocal about his feelings regarding the MTV VMAs. Back in 2011, he tweeted, “The VMAs. One day a year when MTV pretends to still care about music. I’m drawing a line in the sand. F*ck you VMAs.”

It looks like his views on the event haven’t changed much since then, as both he and his wife, model Behati Prinsloo, took aim at the 2017 VMAs last night on Twitter.

“It’s always exciting to see how utterly horrible the VMAs will be. They really delivered so far this year. #HOLYF*CK,” the Maroon 5 singer, who last attended the event in 2014, tweeted.

He also pointed out some specific grievances about the 2017 show, writing, “Julia Michaels gets cut off while she’s singing and Lorde gets to NOT sing her whole song.” It turns out that Lorde probably had a pretty good reason for not singing, but he wasn’t alone in his annoyance about what happened to Julia Michaels. Levine’s love, Behati Prinsloo, also tweeted about the perceived slight.

Prinsloo wasn’t feeling host Katy Perry, either. “Whoever wrote Katy Perry’s script for the #VMAs, I just want to let you know it’s next level cringe worthy,” she tweeted, adding “#makeitstop.”
