AMP Music Minute: Drake Tops Hip Hop Records With 11th No. 1, Madonna Gives MDNA Release Date And Adam Levine Responds To Randy Jackson Critisicm (page 3)
Maroon 5 front man and “The Voice” judge, Adam Levine has always been vocal when he feels he’s been wronged. (remember that time he told FOX News to “never use his band’s @#%^@#$@!!! music again” or something to that effect?)
[photogallerylink id=143974 align=right]Well this time, the tatted pop crooner goes after “American Idol” judge Randy Jackson who criticized “The Voice” for allowing people with former careers to audition. During an interview on “The Ellen Show” alongside the other “Voice” judges Levine responded.
“Randy said that ‘The Voice’ is basically kind of a second-chance place. People that don’t get in someplace else go to ‘The Voice’,” pointed out Ellen. Adam quickly retorted, “I heard about this. Shame on Randy Jackson for saying that.” He continued on, “Because he, out of anybody, should know that if you’re in this business you need second, third, fourth and fifth chances. So we love and embrace that being part of the show, he is a household name now. It was an irresponsible thing to say that.”
We rarely expect Adam to hold his tongue anymore, which is a trait we certainly respect about him. And frankly, in this case we agree. Where would anyone be without second chances?
The Voice’s second season debuted immediately after the Superbowl. You can catch the next episode tonight, and every Monday at 8pm on NBC.
