WHOA. Guys! Adam Levine, adult frontman of popular rock group Maroon 5 and one of the judges on the consistently-confusing-for-a-very-infrequent-viewer television talent contest The Voice, has some strong opinions about a certain television show that everyone has kind of stopped talking about already! Let’s listen to them, I guess! I don’t know! Who cares, at this point! We’re all going to die someday, remember that while you’re reading this! From PopWatch:

Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine is officially driving the “I hate Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” bandwagon. Well, hate is an understatement. The Voice judge told GQ “Honey Boo Boo is the DECAY of Western civilization.”

After describing the show as an atrocity, the singer proceeds to drop a few f-bombs. “That show is literally The. Worst. Thing. That’s. Ever. Happened. It’s complete f—ing ignorance and the most despicable way to treat your kids. F— those people. You can put that in the magazine: F— those idiots. They’re just the worst. Sorry, I’m so sensitive to that — like, I don’t know, man, it’s upsetting. Just to clarify, I said, “F— THOSE PEOPLE.”

“The DECAY of Western civilization” and literally the worst thing that has ever happend? Strong words. “I’ve never read a newspaper and I never let anyone tell me about current or past events, but I did catch Here Comes Honey Boo Boo the other night and that shit is much worse than being on TV shows and being in a band. As far as I know, it was the worst thing that has ever happened. Fuck those people.” More on this story as it develops. Please enjoy your day!

  1. Here Comes Honey Boo Hoo. That’s Adam Levine. He’s crying.

  2. Coming from the guy on American Horror Story?

  3. Sorry, Adam – you don’t get to write “Moves Like Jagger” and get to call other people out for making crap. It’s one or the other.

    • You also don’t get to call out Adam Levine for hypocrisy when you don’t even close your html tags.

      • Oh God, you guys. I don’t know what kind of voodoo this is, but I just went to my author page and everything listed below that comment is now italicized. So if Videogum breaks and you’re looking for someone to blame, it was probably my fault.

    • yep. ditto this with The Voice.

    • When I book a wedding DJ, I’m including a rider that stipulates that if, at any point during the ceremony, “moves like jagger” or anything by Train is played it will immediately result in the forfeiture of the deposit.

      • Our wedding DJ was awesome. They had a list of songs that they would not play unless specifically requested by the bride or groom. (YMCA, We Are a Family, Electric Slide, etc.). We got to give them a DO NOT PLAY list which included but was not limited to Black Eyed Peas and Rhianna.

        One of our guests begged her to play Creed for him and his lady (yikes!) and she refused. She told us ahead of time that if a drunk guest came up to her to request the Chicken Dance, she would tell that they must have missed it while they were in the bathroom.

        Do not hire any DJ that doesn’t let you pick the music you want (if you care what type of music is played). It was worth every penny.

      • You will want a long, LONG list of do not play. My friends did it and it was lovely. My brother, meanwhile, had that John Cougar Mellencamp song about statutory rape play during his wedding. By a band. So it was on a set list and okayed??? I thought it was creepy and my mom told me not to be such a music snob. Then I told her to listen to the lyrics for a bit and she was like “yeah, this is pretty inappropriate.”

        Long list.

        • Yeah. There’s gonna be a long list. I was just at a wedding where the DJ played 4 (!!!) train songs. I didn’t even know they had 4 songs! He also refused to play “Baby got back” because it was “inappropriate.” ARE YOU JOKING ME WITH THAT NONSENSE?????

          Also there was an amazing moment when we were all dancing then a Dave Matthews song came on and we all cleared the dance floor. Like literally not one person was left. He then quickly transitioned to some MJ.

        • Holy Crap?! What John Cougar Mellencamp song is that?

  4. The View is a talent contest? that IS confusing!

  5. Relax, she’s just a child, dude.

  6. My dog is the best. Over the last week, I decided to give him couch privileges and now he just sleeps in or near my lap all day. My dog is just the best. He is super cute and his ears are made of warm velvet and I love him. Just to clarify – I said, “My dog is the best.”

  7. That show is literally The. Worst. Thing. That’s. Ever. Happened.

    Um. Literally? I mean, do you really want to put that down as your answer to Single Most Awful Thing In The History Of Time And Everything? Because I am pretty sure that there are, or have been, other things that are actually worse than Honey Boo Boo.

  8. Years from now we’ll all remember exactly where we were when Honey Boo Boo.


  9. I’m going to have to take issue with referring to Maroon 5 as a “rock group”.

  10. Who’s the guy with the weird mustache? -Adam Levine

  11. Holy moly, you guys, I just watched the video/heard the song “Moves Like Jagger” for the first time. It short-circuited me. This was actually popular?? #1 according to Wikipedia?!? The song is completely awful and yikes: Do the girl-kids today look at Shirtless Adam Levine and think, “He’s hot”? Does he seem cool to the guy-kids?? I just felt embarrassed for him. Someone throw a blanket over that guy. I DON’T GET IT.

  12. Oh Adam Levine, you sexy piece of skinny white handsomeness with the horrible tattoos and the music that makes my ears bleed, you still are just a piece of meat to me and now I just want to hear you speak even less.

  13. I’ve never seen Honey Boo Boo, but have heard this guy’s songs on the radio ten million times one summer at work and was the worst Summer. I mean his songs are just sooooooo bad!

  14. I remember watching a promo for the Voice and it had a shot of Adam Levine smashing a guitar like he was Pete Townsend. In slo-mo. That was probably worse than Honey Boo Boo.

  15. Reality TV star says Reality TV show is worst thing ever.
