adam levine snapple getty Adam Levine vs. the MTV Video Music AwardsMaroon 5’s frontman Adam Levine is not shy about expressing his opinions. Earlier this month, he took “American Idol” to task in an Out interview for not letting their contestants be open about being gay while on the show.

Now he has expressed his displeasure over the MTV Video Music Awards. On Saturday (Aug. 27), Levine took to Twitter with, “the VMA’s. one day a year when MTV pretends to still care about music. I’m drawing a line in the sand. f*** you VMA’s.” [editing added]

The official MTV Twitter account responded with, “.@adamlevine Soooo you’ll be tuning in at 9/8C tomorrow right? (BTW, bonus points if you TwitPic your 2004 Moonman!) #VMA.”  (Maroon 5 won a Moonman in 2004 for Best New Artist.)

And Levine followed up with, “still waiting to have my “jerry macguire mission statement moment of deep regret…” not happening. phew!” and “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.”

Who’s side are you on? Love the VMAs or think MTV is pretending to care about music, as Levine claims?
