Adam Levine is a super successful musician with millions of dollars in the bank, a hit TV show, and a Rolodex filled with virtually every beautiful model on the planet. But the man hates this country! So he muttered on The Voice last night after two of his three remaining singers were voted off the show. Hey, Adam, you probably own a private jet! Nothing is stopping you from taking a one-way trip outta Dodge.
Adam tried to explain his remark on Twitter today -- with a bunch of dictionary definitions. He wrote:
joke- noun 1. something said or done to provoke laughter or cause amusement, as a witticism, a short and amusing anecdote, or prankish act
hu·mor·less (hymr-ls) adj. 1. Lacking a sense of humor. 2. Said or done without humor
Err, last I remembered, muttering, "I hate this country" isn't exactly side-splitting. Keep your day job, Adam. The comedy world is just fine without you.
STILL. I think we know what Adam really meant. He really meant, "I hate the people in this country who dared not to vote to keep my singers on the show!" At least I think that's what he meant.
Either way, one of the great things about this country is being able to say "I hate this country" -- whether in jest, slip of the tongue, or even with complete sincerity -- and not having the Gestapo (or the Twitterverse) come bang down your door. Unless you're making threats, you get to say what you like in this country -- the country that Adam hates.
But Adam, next time might want to watch what you say. We didn't deport you over "Moves Like Jagger" but our patience is wearing thin.
What do you think about what Adam said?
