Adam Levine on Honey Boo Boo: “literally the worst thing that’s ever happened”


Adam Levine must not get out much. He must not read the newspaper or watch the news or pay attention to much outside the celebrity and entertainment bubble. He must not watch The Soup. Or else why would he call TLC’s Honey Boo Boo show “literally the worst thing that’s ever happened” and “the decay of Western civilization.” He didn’t even say the show is “the worst thing that’s ever happened to television,” he said it was the worst thing ever – literally. (I hate when people use that term incorrectly to make their asinine point. “Literally” means actually. So “Honey Boo Boo” is “literally” the worst thing that’s ever happened in Adam Levine’s entire worldview.) There are much worse things on television, particularly on TLC, I’m not going to get into the broader meaning that Levine used, like wars and plagues and natural disasters. Granted I’m not a fan but the family seemed pretty harmless to me in the pilot, and I’ve seen the mom act graciously in interviews. She could use some manners, but they’re not the worst people. Television gets much trashier than Honey Boo Boo, but Adam went off on the show in a new interview, with GQ. They asked him what was scarier, which was a nod to his bit part on American Horror Story this season. (AHS is worse than Honey Boo Boo, IMO, that show really went off the rails recently.)

Here’s what he said:

GQ: Waking up not famous or waking up as one of Honey Boo Boo’s parents? Adam Levine: Seriously, Honey Boo Boo is the DECAY of Western civilization. Just because so many people watch the show doesn’t mean it’s good. So many people witness atrocities and can’t take their eyes away from them, but that doesn’t mean they’re good. 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.”

[From GQ via US Weekly]

Tell us how you really think Adam. So it’s ok to brag about having unprotected sex, but some family that got famous for beings rednecks is somehow the worst thing that’s ever happened – ever, and Adam Levine hates them. Why does he care so much?

I shouldn’t pay too much attention to what this guy says. He regularly acts like a douche, both in interviews and in his personal life. Unlike Adam I don’t get too worked up about it though. Now we know one of his weaknesses. If you want to hurt Adam Levine’s widdle feelings, just mock him and tell him that Honey Boo Boo is more famous.

    Adam Levine is one of the worst things to happen in music. How much longer until this reedy voiced douchebag is no longer relevant?

    Honey Boo Boo might be a trashy show, but I think that family is awesome. They make me laugh.

  2. Agnes says:

    it does seem like one of the signs of the apocalypse but, really, who cares?

  3. Sisi says:

    yeah the misuse of the word ‘literally’ is also a peeve of mine

    Does Levine think that the term western civilization only applies to the USA? Because they don’t even broadcast the Honey BooBoo show here

    and those socks are ugly!

  4. Mimi says:

    “If you want to hurt Adam Levine’s widdle feelings, just mock him and tell him that Honey Boo Boo is more famous.”

    Bahahaha THIS!!^^ I think I’d take Honey Boo Boo over Adam Levine any day of the week.

  5. LisaMarie says:

    Interestingly, this is somehow the same way I feel about Adam Levine.

  6. Chatcat says:

    In a perfect world there would be no Adam Levin or Honey boo boo … now that whole end of the mayan calendar thing isn’t look so dreadful.

  7. aims says:

    I love honey boo boo! I went into the show with my prejudices about the stereo types that they were representing. However, i came out of it with a real respect towards them. At the end of the day they’re a good family. They love each other, their home is full of laughter. Whats wrong with that? As for Adam, stop being a tool! Stop taking yourself so seriously! You’re a singer that got lucky.

    • judyjudy says:

      I agree, the Boo-Boo family are really great people.

      I wish they were healthier, though. I worry about their diet and what that means for them down the road.

    • Beep says:

      Exactly! They love each other, they laugh, they are a close knit family, they are completely accepting of other (like “uncle Poodle”). The mother is not stupid, has stated many times that she has put the money they are making into trusts for the kids, so they aren’t blowing it. Money and fame haven’t changed them. . So they burp and fart, that is the worst thing they do.Hateing on someone just for being themselves says a lot more about Adam than Honey-boo-boo

  8. gee says:

    Honey Boo Boo – Literally worse than World Wars, massive tax debts, disease, famine, human trafficking, hate crimes, drought, etc. Sounds about right. A six year old girl is literally worse. Literally.

  9. bluhare says:

    No, Adam. That honor belongs to Move Like Jagger.

  10. MerryHappy says:

    A socially progressive hillbilly family with an overweight child is hardly the worst thing to happen to the western world, you judgmental douche nozzle. Wars and genocides are less offensive and worrisome to him that one little girl? Seriously?

  11. busy ramone says:

    I think the Kardashians and the Bachelor/Bachelorette are far worse, actually.

  12. Scarlet Vixen says:

    Okay Adam, calm down. I totally hate the Honey Boo Boo-type of reality tv (and the Real Housewives/Kardashian type of reality tv, etc) but I hardly think Honey Boo Boo will single-handedly cause the eventual fall of Western Civilization or something.

    One thing I will say for Adam Levine tho–I know he’s probably a total d-bag for the most part, but I watch the Voice (*sigh* I did just admit that) and he always seems genuinely invested in his team members and appears to be a great coach/mentor.

    • Lisa says:

      Really? He gave me the opposite impression. I saw him talking about it on Ellen, and he struck me as insincere. :\

      • Scarlet Vixen says:

        @Lisa: I really think so. I’ve watched all 3 seasons of The Voice, and of all 4 of the judges I think he is the most respectful of each of his team member’s individual style and talents and sees himself more as a guide than a boss/manager (followed closely by Blake Shelton). Unlike other judges he lets them pick their own songs and embraces their own quirkiness/individuality. He’s also very self-deprecating about his voice and how he–as he puts it–”sings like a girl” which I also appreciate.

  13. Tuxedo Cat says:

    Wow, nice ride, Adam…

    I love love Honey Boo Boo. I think that show will help children in the end.

    I believe Honey Boo Boo is a gifted child, and it’s good for Americans to see that working class families love and hurt like everyone else.

  14. HotPockets says:

    I started watching the second season of AHS and he is the worst thing in that show, what were they thinking casting him?

    Him saying this also makes me like Honey Boo boo, even though I have yet to watch her show, but I’ll start now!

  15. BengalCat2000 says:

    I “literally” think Adam Levine’s ego (and shite music) is the decay of civilization. He is “literally” the King of Douchebaggery.

  16. Sam says:

    Ugh. This post just sets me off today. My husband’s family just arrived in America last night from Syria. They had to flee their home, despite trying to stay, because it just got too bad to stay. Stuff like that, people being murdered by their own government and being driven from their homeland, that’s sorta one of the worst things ever. Not some rednecks on TV who you don’t even have to watch.

    Ever time he speaks, I like him less and less. And btw, is the new girlfriend a model too? Is he just trying to screw his way through the entire Victoria’s Secret roster now?

    • blonde on the dock says:

      Your husband must be so relieved to have his family safe. It’s horrific what’s going on over there.

      • Sam says:

        Yes, he is. He was trying to convince them for the last few months to leave (there was a lot of unrest before the actual violence started, so lots of Syrians got out then). They are a relatively well-off family, so they initially thought they could just move around the country and be safe. But basically, the whole thing is in chaos now. They are lucky to be kind of wealthy, because they could arrange to get out (basically, bribe people) pretty easily to get here. It’s just sad that they might never get back to their home.

        Adam Levine is one of those people who needs to be forced to tour other nations (and even less well-off parts of the US) to see what kinds of things really qualify as the “worst thing ever.” He needs an education.

    • bluhare says:

      And a friend of a friend just went back there, because his mom is alone (his dad died last year) and he is worried for her. Now that’s brave.

  17. Caleb's Mom says:

    What an elitist ahole. What, why can’t they prosper with what they have to offer and what gives him the right to say that they are not worthy? Only skinny, beautiful people with barely passable voices can achieve fame? Let bygones be bygones and if they are able to raise their station in life doing what they do, I say more power to them.

  18. SmokeyBlues says:

    Oh, trashing a child. That’s nice.

  19. Bellatrix says:

    Honey Boo Boo is literally more famous than Adam Levine.

  20. melissa says:

    Unfortunately, he is correct. I don’t watch TV, but I understand the gist of this Honey Boo Boo. We cannot complain about the messy state of our civilization while supporting such stupidity. This is not being directed at either of them, but if we continue to accept such stupidity into our culture, and make it the norm, obviously we can expect things to continuosly get worse. This world is a mess. Idiots like these two are the reason why.

    • Last Line says:

      But, he is an idiot. What has he given to civilization to enhance it? A few pop songs? Some photo-ops, perhaps? I don’t know of his philanthropy (I know only of his philandering). I don’t think anyone who can speak so disgustingly about a family he does not know personally can be too much of an intellectual or a humanitarian.

    • LittleDeadGirl says:

      Civilization has alot to offer. It has trash too and if that’s what you want to surround yourself with fine. We also have museums and good books and great movies. That’s what I surround myself with so I don’t see any decay at all. People expect civilization will improve if we all just don’t watch trashy television. It’s a way overly simplistic point of view. I enjoy zombie flicks too. Some people judge me on that. Some people here like honey boo boo. We all have different things we enjoy.

    • RN says:

      I agree with you wholeheartedly. I don’t watch either of them (it pains me to look at all of them, quite frankly). This is why I only watch two shows in total year round on the television. If they’re off season, then I read.

  21. Lisa says:

    Please, they’re the most normal of all the families involved in those pageants! The other mothers are overgrown brats with brattier kids. June actually gives a damn about her family.

  22. Madriani's Girl says:

    Look at him rolling up his sleeves to show his ridiculous tats and his non-existent muscles! Idiot.

  23. goodquestion says:

    that pants/socks/shoes combo is literally the ugliest thing i’ve seen today.

  24. D says:

    At least the boo-boo family is genuine. Adam…no so much.

  25. LeslieM says:

    My high school friend just posted pictures of herself with Honey Boo Boo’s mother and family. They have been having some sort of holiday charity drive outside their house every night. Honey Boo Boo was inside sick but the rest of the family was out greeting all the people dropping things of. My friend says they are the nicest people you could meet.

    • Katija says:

      I have a friend of a friend of a friend – literally do not know the guy, but he was out with some friends of mine – but he was down there as a production assistant. He backed up what you said. He said that they’re insanely nice. His only critique was that Alana could get REALLY bratty sometimes, but that he gave her a pass, because I mean, she’s 7 and she’s been tossed into this very strange little world. BUT, he said June is NOT the stage mother you might think she is. She wasn’t forcing Alana to perk up for the cameras if she didn’t want to – being a mom came first.

      (Oh, and I guess Alana is NOT fed lines by the producers, which I always assumed she was. They ask her leading questions to get her to say funny stuff, but she comes up with it on her own.)

  26. Pandora says:

    LOL, he obviously watches this kind of TV, he is so average and tragically try-hard it makes my eyes water.

    You know what?? Give me the Decay of Western Civilisation over the Triumph of Mediocrity any f*ing day.

    The irony is, the BooBoos are completely real, while Adam Levine is a a painstaking second by second attempt to remain cool,relevant and most of all sexy. The highlight of AHS s2 was seeing that dickhead get his arm ripped off……….

    In hell Muzak is provided by Adam Levine……..

  27. Dani says:

    I used to LOVE Adam, before he became a Grade A douche and the second coming of Leo Dicap constantly dating diff VS models. But really, the show is harmless. The kid actually LOVES it, and no one is being harmed. It’s okay for him to roll around in various music videos, half naked in bed with different girls? Oh, Adam.

  28. Hubbahun says:

    Says the man who makes bland, asinine, whiny douche music an art form. What a w*nker. Horrible, horrible man, yeuch. Just my measured and considered opinion :P

  29. HulaHoop says:

    Literally? He is aware of something called “The Holocaust” I assume? Not to mention everything currently happening in the Middle East. Gah! I seriously CAN NOT stand him. I would literally rather be water boarded than listen to a Maroon 5 song in it’s entirety.

  30. Sunny says:

    I actually *kind of* agree. I find ALL reality shows featuring children to be just…wrong. They’re children, and to be on reality television is tantamount to exploitation. They can’t possibly consent, and reality television is still young enough we don’t know what effect this will have on them long term (and I’ve sen some clips of that child on talk shows…something is just not right at all).

    I get that I’ll never win the fight against the Jersey Shore delinquents, or the entitled Kardashians that serve no purpose but to collect money, but leave children out of it. Really.

    • EB says:

      I agree. I strongly dislike reality shows that feature children. How is Alana/HBB going to feel when she grows up, only to realize her mother essentially pimped her out for the world to make fun of their redneck antics? If June and her husband don’t mind people laughing at them, it’s one thing, but Alana can’t fully understand the repercussions of taking on something like a reality show.

  31. Samigirl says:

    So judgemental! People used to say the same thing about rock music, people with tats, and gay people.

  32. junegorilla says:

    Moves like Jagger sung by a man who can’t dance on SNL. That was the worst thing on TV. Lay off that Honey Boo Boo you asshole. She is a CHILD! He’s a douchebag. And he is not e rocker either. He sings bubblegum pop music at best. And all of the “tribal” tats on earth won’t change that.

  33. j.eyre says:

    Somebody please fetch Mr. Levine a television manual so he can look up how to turn it off. That is how I have survived such atrocities.

  34. Barbara says:

    I really like Adam…sorry folks. And you could not pay me to watch that Honey-Boo-Boo crap. To each his own I say, not everyone likes Reality TV.

  35. GirlyGirl says:

    Adam Levine is the worst thing to happen to music in decades. Maroon V is watered down disco disguised as new music.

  36. erika says:

    honey BOO BOO Chyld! hollah!!! gotta hollah to make a dollah!!!

    adam, tattooed meathead, modelizer shagging embicile…i’d take HONEY BOO HOLLAH!!!! over your HIPSTER PRETENTIOUSNESS anyday…

    p.s.- your music sucks, you are no longer relevant as a musician, not that you ever were

  37. Katie Too says:

    And yet…I’d still hit it.

  38. Chloeeee says:

    Once again I have no problem defending this family. hey don’t thrive on Drama. its a quirky family. they don’t treat eachother poorly. they donate and raise money for less fortunate. yes obesity is a problem in this country and the food they eat is not healthy but when you’re a lower income family feeding s lot of mouths its not always easy to do so. Adam alone can go f–k himself. the hollywodd machine has donefar more damage to western civilization.

  39. Lindsey says:

    “Moves Like Jagger” is the worst thing to happen to music, so…you know. There’s that.

  40. Memphis says:

    Sit your ass down, Mr. Levine.

    NO one has cared about anything you’ve had to say for years, asshat.

  41. prissy says:

    Who the hell listens to MORON 5??? They are terrible!! I’d rather watch back to back episodes of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo than listen to Moron 5′s full album!!

  42. Alexis says:

    Watch honey boo boo or listen to a Maroon 5 album…hm. Idk. Both not great.

  43. Maritza says:

    I like Honey Boo Boo they are a loving and funny family who make fun of themselves. They aren’t the healthiest people but at least they aren’t pretentious or snobby like the Kardashians. I like the fact that they are simple down to earth people.

  44. Garvels says:

    Oh please Adam…like you are qualified to be judging moral conduct ….I have never watched the show but I essentially have sworn off of these type of reality shows since the husband of one of the Beverly Hills housewives killed himself. I personally think the Bravo Housewives series and the Kartrashians are probably worse than Honey Boo Boo and the country bumpkins.

    The only reality shows I like are the HGTV decorating shows and the Food Network.

  45. TG says:

    Adam is so gross, I can’t even look at him. And he is on a show with a turtle killer so go figure. Don’t think he should be judging on what is the worst thing for our society when he is friends with someone who goes out of their way to run over turtles (blake shelton). I don’t watch his show either or any of these reality shows. They all suck.

      • TG says:

        Blake Shelton runs over turtles. He was joking about it on Twitter when everyone threw a fit so then he responded that he was joking and called everyone an a** or something like that. He was not joking. He is a low-life red neck who thinks it is funny to run over animals in his vehicle. Just google it or look it up on this site. For that I will never look at his or that stupid wife of his face again. I also just a comment where Adam said he went hunting with Blake so he could get to know him and Blake called him a sissy because he didn’t want to shoot a duck. I am not against hunting but to call someone a sissy because they don’t feel like killing an animal is a low-life to me anyway.

  46. LouLou says:

    He is literally a douche. Oh wait, that’s not possible. How about: he is very douche-like? There we go.

  47. Boodiba says:

    Someone should airlift him over to Japan and dump him on top of one of the broken and steaming reactors. I think his opinion of tragic might change.

  48. chria says:

    i think adam levine is the sexiest man ever. i personally think the show (honey booboo) is funny but im laughing at them not with them. i mean they might be nice people…blah blah, but they are in a way representing Americans. they are making us look like fat, lazy unclass human beings and to make it even better we put it on tv like it’s something to be proud of…and AHS is awesome. im “literally” addicted to the show :)

    • V4Real says:

      People on this post may loathe Adam Levine but I think he is a talented man. I love his music. He didn’t bring up Honey and her family the interviewer did and he responded by giving his honest opinion. If he had taken the politically correct route, then people on this post would probably be complaining that he was not being real and call him fake. Some people did the same thing when Jeremy Renner was asked about the Kardashians; he didn’t bring up the show, the interviewer did. Yes he could have answered in a different way but I bet he would have gotten smack for not giving an honest answer. I’m glad Adam & Renner put their opinions out there because both those shows are garbage.

      The only thing that Network is doing is exploiting that little girl and her family. That network only put that family on TV because they knew people would make fun of the family, while the network raked in the big bucks.

      Also for people who have issues with stereotyping that is exactly what the show Honey Boo Boo does.

  49. Bec215 says:

    Adam’s reaction is hyperbolic – but his distaste is something I share…Except my “F-you” is directed at the producers who put them on TV.

    I don’t begrudge the family the opportunity to make the kind of money the show generates – but it also doesn’t justify the show.

    The kids in Jersey Shore and The Real World were ‘in on the joke’ – unlike this show. I find it dispicable that people treat them like live-action version of a South Park cartoon.

  50. Carolyn says:

    I like, literally say whatev’s to both these people. Most celebs don’t have anything to say..stop granting them interviews ang getting their views on like, stuff.

    Shows like HoneyBooBoo do make the US look stupid. We’re laughing at you, not with you.

  51. kiki says:

    I agree with him in some ways. They are exploiting this child. At least one person in Celebrityville who says what he thinks. I come on here and read a lot of unflattering things said about different people so I think it is hypocritical to get upset over someone saying unflattering things about other people on a website that is known for this. Ironic isn’t it.

  52. Camille says:

    My Christmas wish is that the google alert he has for himself ( you know he ha one ) links him up to this thread so he can read all the comments.
    Also there’s no way ANY of the models he dates would have anything to do with him if he wasn’t a celebrity-ish

  53. Moi says:

    Sorry, but I have said something similar. Not that it’s the worst thing to ever have happened to western civilization, but that people finding that show entertaining, shows signs of a certain downfall of our society. If I wanted to watch people like the ones on that show, I would go to Atmore, Alabama where some of my relatives on my moms side live. Not waste time watching that show.

    • LittleDeadGirl says:

      I understand where you are coming from but you should be careful judging people on the shows they watch especially if it’s like a guilty pleasure. I’m sure you have your guilty pleasures others would say show signs of the downfall of civilization.

  54. Leek says:

    I watched the show all excited to hate on them but they seem pretty crazy about each other. Sugar Bear is a great step dad and June seems to be another mom trying to make her child happy. Honey Boo Boo appears to love the pageant circuit so I can’t even say her mom is pushing her. My beef is rarely with the family, except for that awful Kate Gosseling, it’s more with TLC. TLC seems to feed off of showing the lives of people without any good intentions.

    Adam Levine is just another out of touch narcissist. They’re a dime a dozen. Hey Adam, if you want to feel special try leaving LA and do something with your life that will actually matter to someone.

  55. rachelhachel says:

    maroon 5 is LITERALLY the worst thing to happen to music

  56. Gia says:

    Initially when I saw this post on the home page I paid it absolutely no attention…as you do when you see this dork’s face…but I have come back to the site a few times since, looking for new articles and just now read the headline. I am amazed by his lack of self awareness. As if he is somehow contributing in any way to a greater good or even being a remotely good influence. Laughable.

  57. Shoe_Lover says:

    I know you don’t watch the show but they are truly decent people. This family is poor, like below the poverty line poor, and even before the show they were always finding ways to make money for charity, doing canned food drives for charity etc. Now they have fame they are working even harder for charity. They are doing a Christmas toy drive right now for disadvantaged children and they have raised heaps of money for toys for Christmas. The parents may not have the best manners but there is no denying that they are decent people who love their kids. HBB’s mother isn’t the typical pageant mother either, sure she gives HBB go go juice, but she isn’t a mean, nasty stage mother like some of those mothers.
    There is a lot of love in that family and if showing that is “literally The. Worst. Thing. That’s. Ever. Happened” then Adam Levine needs to pull his head out of his butt and take a look at the world. I’d rather watch Here Comes Honey Boo Boo then some of the extremely violent movies and tv shows out there not to mention the horror seen daily on the news

  58. LittleDeadGirl says:

    Isn’t he on that stupid show “The Voice”. How is that contributing anything of real value to society? People need to stop being so melodramatic. It’s a tv show … don’t like it … don’t watch it. Maybe be more up in arms about AIDS or Malaria … no … a tv show … so much more terrible.

    Talk about first world problems …

  59. Adrien says:

    I love Honey Boo Boo. I wanted to hate the show but I just can’t.

  60. aang says:

    I’ve only watched two episodes but they seem like a nice, happy, loving family. I won’t judge their manners or their diet. The fact that they are ok with their gay pig and Uncle Poodle makes me like them even more. Busting the stereotype that all rednecks are socially conservative. I do not even who this Adam Levine is.

  61. Grace says:

    Adam hates anything or anyone genuine. He’s so fake and without personality that even TV viewers know a child is more sincere and positive than he is.

    Douchebag.

  62. LadyBird83 says:

    Really? This coming from the toolbox from the Voice and Moron 5. (yes I meant to write that) She’s just a kid, what the f–k is your excuse for releasing mindless dribble to the American public?

  63. oh dear says:

    i cant help but feel that guy has a chip on his shoulder. hes really judgemental. you know those people who used to be poor and then they get rich and hate on the poor and find them disgusting? thats the vibe i get off this guy. and you know what, he is still ignorant as hell. so i guess he does hate his own flaws in honey boo boo.

    or maybe he just has a really small peen and hates on everyone lol

  64. ToastedSkin says:

    wow the amount of hate he gets on this site…no matter what he says it’s always interpreted as “douchey”.
    whatever, I like his honesty, and honey boo boo and shows like it are truly pathetic.

    • orange says:

      Because he is the epitome of douche. Look at that smarmy smirk, those carefully selected (moronic looking) socks that probably cost a couple hundred bucks, the “perfect” model girlfriend, the rolled up pants and of course, that car. It’s a nice car I guess but it’s all part of this expertly crafted image he’s got, like he’s a sensitive hipster or something, I’m not even sure what he’s trying to be, or do, but his smug face and elitist attitude is annoying. You can just look at him and tell that he thinks his sh*t doesn’t stink. People like him go on and on about being tolerant and accepting, but the second they see someone like Honey Boo Boo, someone who doesn’t fit into their social circle or isn’t rich, famous and beautiful, the claws come out. This is the type of guy who would mock HBB’s mom if she was serving him in a restaurant, or cleaning his hotel room. He’s a scumbag, it’s obvious and his music is horrendous.

  65. floridaseaturtle says:

    I agree so much with the majority here. I have never watched Honey-Boo Boo, but she and her family are obviously harmless. I really can’t stand his music, talk about an ear-worm. Oh, btw Mr. Levine. My husband and I watch The Voice, along with the other talent shows. While you are there “judging”, why don’t you just keep your chicken legs on the floor, instead of up on the chair, like you are actually at work or something. Picture any other judge of anything doing that all the time. What a pontificating, little loser dweeb.

  66. Ms Kay says:

    So correct me if I’m wrong… According to Adam Levine, slavery, famine, AIDS, genocide, xenophobia, cancer, war, the Kardashians and Marchesa are all coming under Honey Boo Boo TV show on the list of the worst things that have ever happened to civilization..? *ponders*

  67. Ramona Flowers says:

    Honest or not, he is still a sheltered, over privileged, and narcissistic pop music puppet whose music is just as on par, if not worse than the sucky Nickelback. He wouldn’t be getting some over-coked, skinny VS models if it weren’t for his mediocre music.

      Oh he is no artist and i don’t know much about current “pop-rock” or whatever but i never thought “rock musicians” would start using autotune…who is he to put anyone down!!And he looks like a weasel in the face so not attractive!

    • orange says:

      I don’t get the hate for Nickelback. They aren’t trying to be anything other than what they are…commercial rock music that’s kind of catchy and something to listen to while drinking some beers and hanging out. I am biased though, I LOVE them and I’m not going to jump on the bandwagon and hate them when this high voiced bastard and his vomit inducing music are all over the radio. Give me Nickelback any freaking day!

    But you don’t have to watch any television show – is Honey Boo Boo such a phenomenon of stardom that you can’t just ignore her? This comment seems calculated to stoke internet rage : it’s just so disproportionate. It’s breaking a butterfly on a wheel.

  69. Catty says:

    I have absolutely no problem with what he said. I am sick to death of TV and seems like most of you posters celebrating ignorant rednecks. This country used to pride itself on intelligence and class – forget about all that. Now America wants the world to celebrate ignorance and what’s worse – these rednecks pride in their ignorance. It is absolutely disgusting. And go on bashing Adam and saying how wonderful this family is – that is how low this country has fallen that people would defend this family!!

    • floridaseaturtle says:

      Gosh Catty, breathe. You do remember, btw, he is a grown man, and she is still a child? He can take it.

    • orange says:

      Wow get over yourself, Catty. This might come as a shock to you, but plenty of people don’t give a flying eff what you and the other elitists think about them and their lifestyles. Who made you the social police? If you don’t like what’s on TV then TURN IT OFF. Very simple, even an ignorant redneck can figure it out so why can’t a super genius educated elite like yourself do the same?

      I’ll tell you something. I grew up in elitist central, surrounded by people like you. They love to consider themselves open minded, tolerant and accepting, but the second they come into contact with a lower class white person, they lose their minds and literally start frothing with hatred and vitriol towards these people. If you think you are so superior, then why do you need to constantly cut them down? What kind of emotional satisfaction do you get out of it? Like I said, I grew up around your kind and they’d never dream of speaking ill of a lower class person of color, an immigrant, or anyone except lower class whites. It’s hypocritical and despicable and the worst part is you people never see it! But keep on thinking that you are so superior, because it’ll be a rude awakening for you if you ever become poor, which can happen to anyone. You might want to keep this quote in mind: “If you label me, you negate me” -Kierkegaard

      Oh and this whole class thing is ASININE. Part of the reason America was founded was to get away from the rigid social castes of Europe, where people could be judged on things other than their money, name and connections (and now in modern times, material items). Why would we want to go backwards? People talk about being progressive, etc but you never see how you’re moving backwards in so many ways. Sad.

    Funny that is the same thing I think when I think of Maroon 5, Adam Levine calling themselves artists and ‘musicians.’ Mr. Skinny pants needs to look in the mirror and laugh at himself for a change.

  71. ms. heart says:

    I’m gonna get soo much crap for this.. but here we go. Adam’s got a pretty valid point here. is it The. Worst. Thing. Ever? probably not, but it is a sign, the show could be interpreted as one of the seven riders of the apocalypse, closely flollowed by the Kardassians, Jersey Shore, Any and All Housewives from Godknowswhoville, The Bachelor/Bachelorette, Pitbulls and Parolees (??????), and Celebrity Rehab. it is pityful that watching these trainwrecks unfold is considered entertainment and makes idiots like Snookie gazillionaires. Kardassians’ entire clan’sclaim to fame is the fact that one of them got pissed on by a guy with a crooked dick. Adam has earned his spot in the spotlight and I hope all you haters enjoy watching picures and clips of him riding around in fancy cars with a rotating caroussel of supermodels because if you could… you would too. enjoy Adam!

    • paranormalgirl says:

      why would I want to ride around with supermodels?

      *shrugs*

      anyway,

      No, the Shannon/Thompson family is not indicative of the decline of anything. Do they live how I would choose to live? No. But there is love there. There are worse things in the world than a family that loves each other, tries to do good things for others, and happens to be a bit goofy in the process. Call me stupid, but I think genocide, mass murder, and boy bands are worse than this family.

    • Evy says:

      Totally agree with you ms.heart !!

  72. Sugar says:

    I think he’s a good looking guy but I’m guessing so does he. And since he has a type & it’s obviously about vanity&looks&sex (vS) I think he would be the worst boyfriend ever.. I mean f#*king ever..did I say ever!

  73. smiley says:

    douchebag has got it all wrong ,the apocalypse started when ppl agreed to let ashton kutcher play “steve jobs”

  74. teehee says:

    I never liked him. His lyrics and videos all seem to be a might twisted in the head. Now his terrible character is becoming more and more apparent and it all comes together.
    Gee, I am starting to sound like I hate everything nowadays, but, it might also be that theres only crap nowadays being promoted.
    The same audience that put BooBoo on the Tv is putting this nerd on the radio. Doesn’t that say volumes about him???

  75. natalina says:

    adam’s sleeve is the worst things thats ever happened

  76. natalina says:

    Lay of them, Adam. Let the poor get rich; and may Adam Levine get poor

  77. HCS says:

    Those socks he’s wearing are, “The WORST thing ever.”

  78. Alana Fajina says:

    Adam Levine is the Worst thing to happen to music, so…..?? What an effing moron. Oh, and you can print that. Effing. Moron.

  79. Amilu says:

    You could replace the mention of “Honey Boo Boo” with “Maroon 5″ and/or “Adam Levine,” and I wouldn’t have a problem with that at all.

  80. deehunny says:

    I also have the pet peeve for those who say “literally” to prove their point. It also bothers me when people say, “the fact of the matter is” to bolster their argument.

  81. Hi says:

    WHAT THE HELL PEOPLE?! Stop taking it so seriously! He obviously didn’t mean LITERALLY. He was just showing his despise of it. He was NOT swearing at the child. He was giving his honest opinion. Just because he’s a celebrity, you think he’s a douche. So what? Not all celebrities are terrible. You people seriously need to look at this guy. Your just talking crap from what you know, which apperantly isn’t much. Gosh, STFU. He’s my hero, so I will NOT tolerate crappy talk about him. He is NOT a douche. So unless you find something, ACTUALLY bad about him, shut up.
