Adam Levine hates Chris Brown & ‘he has no problem telling people that’

On any given day, Adam Levine’s face screams “DOUCHE!” to me. In the past few years, I’ve been happy to see that my gut-reaction (“Ew.”) has a basis in reality: Adam Levine says douchey things, ergo, the man is a d-bag. But I’m going to give Adam a brief reprieve. According to Star Magazine, Adam is one of the few music industry professionals unwilling to let “bygones be bygones” when it comes to the Chris Brown situation. Star claims that Adam has such a hate-on for all things Chris Brown, Adam even mistreats Voice contestants who sing Chris’s songs.

Adam Levine recently faced up to rumors that he’s a womanizer by saying: “Maybe the reason I was promiscuous and wanted to sleep with a lot of them is that I love them so much.” He adores women so much, in fact, that he can’t stand a certain R&R crooner who doesn’t treat them right.

“Adam hates Chris Brown,” a source tells Star. “And he has no problem telling people that.” His anti-Chris feelings are so strong that they’re affecting his work as a judge on The Voice, which recently began filming its third season. During blind auditions, one contestant sang one of Chris’s songs and did an amazing job, but Adam was so blinded by his hatred for Chris that he took it out on the performer for his choice of tune.

“Adam flat-out told the guy he would have chosen him if he hadn’t sung a Chris Brown song,” the insider says. “He said some people might be over what Chris did, but he isn’t and never will be.”

Adam’s integrity is admirable – but the source thought he took things too far.

“Adam didn’t need to let his personal opinions of Chris affect his judgment,” the source explained. “It was actually really inappropriate and immature for him to refuse to choose the singer based on the original artist.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Eh. “It was actually really inappropriate and immature for him to refuse to choose the singer based on the original artist.” Not really? I would be turned off if I heard someone covering a Chris Brown song too. I simply associate Chris’s music with being a violent woman-beater and an immature, tantrumy, homophobic, misogynistic sh-t. So… Team Levine on this one. Even though I suspect Adam’s anti-Chris Brown stance is partly “I’m such a sensitive lover of women” posturing, I wish more music professionals would openly despise Brown and hold Chris accountable for his terrible actions.

    Ok….this kind of…makes him ok…for a minute.

    • MerryHappy says:

      I know!
      My immediate reaction was:
      Do NOT make me like you, Adam!
      But I loathe Chris Brown, and I don’t like the cut of the the jib of anyone who likes him.

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        Damn, first Rupert Murdoch and now Levine? Making me like them a little? WTF! It’s the Mayans, I tell you! 🙂

        Does jibe with the guy that worked with us that told me he was his assistant and he was a great guy after I had called him a huge douche. I didn’t know the dude worked for him.

      • Veruca says:

        @Tiff —

        The Mayans. Made me laugh out loud! 😀

    • Lindy says:

      Glad I’m not the only one who had this exact reaction. lol:)

  2. embertine says:

    Wow, mixed feelings on this one. I mean, there’s no side I would actually want to pick, they are both epic douchenozzles.

    Perhaps throw them in a big pit with no food and only one gets to walk out?

    • Happymom says:

      Since Adam Levine doesn’t actually beat the crap out of people, he automatically gets the win.

      • Jess says:

        Agreed- there’s no way Adam and Chris are on equal footing. And now I love Adam, because I’m glad somebody in the music industry isn’t rushing to embrace an abusive a-hole like Chris Brown again. Good for Adam!

  3. sans says:

    Adam definitely seems like a sexist on the Voice, but there is a difference between being biased and being a violent rage monster, so I can see him not liking Brown.

    • Cazzee says:

      If that’s the case then he might be doing a bit of projection….even so, I’m really glad he said this and I admire him for speaking up. And the part about not liking the song is legitimate: if he helped write the song, Chris Brown makes money off of it every time it’s performed.

      Adam Levine just went up a hundred points in my book – on a scale of one hundred, he went from -50 to 50!

  4. lucy2 says:

    He might be a douche, but I’m in agreement with him on this.

  5. Amsterdamned says:

    Everybody hates Chris: the 2 people involved, haved moved on…are friends, ot 4 public eye. Why we still trippin, people? Aldo i DO NOT stand by his actions…

    • beyonce's bump says:

      eeesh Amsterdamned I hear ya. I just don’t get how Chris continues to sustain so much hate. I mean he is still a douche, a real solid douche but I just cannot sustained that much hatred solely based on that fact. *shrugs* I will say absolutely hate team breezy, he’s fan are like some of the most deranged people on earth!

      Levine on the other hand, is just meh. I don’t care for him either way.

      • jano1981 says:

        U clearly never had an abusive male in ur life. They never change. He isn’t even trying to make it look like he has. I hope u have the blessing of never understanding. How can we sustain hate for him?? Easily!

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Guys-part of the problem here is that this wasn’t just an isolated incident. And even if it was-those pictures of Rianna were BRUTAL. But the biggest reason why Brown is having trouble finding redemption in the public eye is that he continues to do one douchey thing after another. Much like Lindsay Lohan, Chris Brown is a slow learner.
        He’s a talented singer, no doubt, but with a sea of talented singers who DON’T beat women, I’d rather my money go towards the stand-up guy, not the mysoginist.

      • Carolyn says:

        Are you kidding? If you are ever in an abusive relationship or someone you love is…good golly you’d change your stance on forgiving and forgetting abusive men. It’s never OK. He’ll never get a “pass” from me. Team Levine on this one.

      • marie says:

        completely agree with everything Kitten said..

      • beyonce's bump says:

        @ Jano…..chill…i had an abusive father and I practice criminal law with a specialty in defending battered women who have committed offences against spouses who had battered them for years. I am was under the assumption it was an isolated incident. And you are wrong, a very select few men who have beaten up a spouse/partner, NEVER do it again with appropriate counselling and anger management. Obviously most batterers do continue to batter. I was not making light of the situation, I am just saying, if this is the only documented evidence of him beating her up, IMO, it does not warrant perpetual hate for the rest of his life. BUT he is a douche regardless.

      • Kat says:

        Even if it was an isolated incident (and I doubt it was), he beat the HELL out of her. Since Rihanna and Brown are very famous celebrities, especially to young people, the issue is wider than just the impact it had on the two of them. If we all give Brown a pass, which most of the music industry and a lot of his fans seem to have done, then it’s like we’re saying it’s wrong to beat someone, but you’ll be forgiven. No. I’m not okay with that, when the perpetrator is this little bratty twat who hasn’t shown (sincere) remorse over his actions.

      • jano1981 says:

        Beyonces butt. Don’t tell me to chill ur misinformed. Everyone has done wonderfully telling u ur wrong tho so I wont bother. Weird. U have daft issues if ur dad beat u guys and ur the first to offer forgiveness to an abuser. Food for thought.

    • MarcyParcy says:

      if he didnt throw chairs into windows at newsrooms during temper tantrums, tell everyone to kiss is azz on twitter, make fun of the situation and act completely unapologetic then i would have gotten over it. See Mel Gibson? He disappeared and appears contrite. Chris Brown is too busy thinking the world owes him something for beating on a woman and picking up litter on the site of the road as a punishment.

      • mia girl says:

        Bottom line, people have not moved on or forgiven because Brown clearly still exhibits the “bitch deserved it” psychotic mentality of an abuser. That’s the only explanation for me for all of Brown’s post beating behavior (asMarcyParcy has pointed out).

      • Lucy2 says:


      • Nikki Girl says:

        This sums it up perfectly. He clearly does not or has never felt any remorse for what he did, and continues to act like a spoiled, entitled child with violent, misogynistic issues.

        It’s not like I spend time or energy thinking about how I hate Chris Brown. But if his name comes up, or his music? You’re darn right I’m gonna hate!

      • Shannon says:

        His attitude has been despicable. Chris really sees himself as the “true victim” in all of this. He hates that those pictures got out and thinks it’s sooooo unfair that the public got to see him and judge him for it. If there’s one thing people with power and control issues can’t stand, it’s feeling helpless and impotent. I’m sure this just keeps igniting his rage. He cannot take responsibility for what he has done as long as he believes he has been wronged. And considering the sycophants he clearly surrounds himself with, he’s never going to change his attitude.

  6. lena80 says:

    Team no one. They have both treated women poorly, different extremes of course, but both of them are a** holes.

    • Veruca says:


      (Oh, and sorry to people who like “Moves like Jagger”. That song is like nails on a chalkboard, and why would you record a super-pop tune to salute Mick? Did the Stones ever do anything that sounded like that whistling hell? End rant.)

  7. Amelia says:

    I know diddly-squat about Adam Levine asides from the fact that I love the song Payphone.
    So definitely Team Levine on this one. I just DON’T UNDERSTAND who in the hell would allow that effing d-bag tosser **** Chris Brown back into the industry. Yes, he can dance but he’s practically married to auto tune and he beat the crap out of a woman half his weight!!
    Sorry. Rant at injustice over. Feel free to enlighten me on what makes Levine a d-bag, I’m genuinely curious.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Hi Amelia!

      Yeah, I’m having trouble with people who equate promiscuity with beating a woman. I’m no fan of Levine but that guy looks like a f*cking saint compared to Chris Brown.

      • Amelia says:

        Mornin’ Kitten, completely agree with you. I’ve experienced both types of d-bag in my life, and believe me, I’d take the manwhore over the violent one any day of the week. At least the manwhore was good for a laugh and had, on the whole, a kind heart (albeit a bit tarnished). The violent one was violent by nature. My dog *hated* him, almost bit him once. But was as soft as butter with the manwhore. That’s usually a fairly good indicator in my book.

      • Shannon says:

        Amelia, I turn to my dog for judgment on guys too XD I’m glad I’m not the only one. If I was really into a guy, but my dog didn’t like him, I’d dump him. I trust my dog to know when someone is a good person and when they’re not. So far he’s been right every time.

  8. only1shmoo says:

    “Adam Levine says douchey things, ergo, the man is a d-bag.” — I think I’m in love with you after reading that comment. However, I will cut the man some slack since we share a mutual disdain for Chris Brown. Good for him, for once.

  9. Diana says:

    Adam Levine is a D-bag. I can’t ever recall hearing one sincere utterance ever pass his lips. He is creepy and a total ego-maniac. Chris Brown has apologized, everyone involved has moved on, but yet we keep dragging out that dead horse any moment we can. It’s pretty pathetic how unforgiving we are as a society. Let him live his life. If you don’t like him, don’t buy his music. Why is this so difficult for people?

    • busy ramone says:

      The legal term for what he did is aggravated assault. He should have served time. His insincere not-quite-an-apology does not suffice.

      Society does forgive women abusers. Daily. When they get no time – like Chris Brown – or when men who murder women are convicted of only manslaughter and are sentenced to as many years as you can count on one hand.

      • Dawn says:

        This plus +1. Chris Brown is nothing more than a glorified thug who beats on women. I shudder to think of how many have NOT called the police. I’m in Adam’s camp all the way.

      • Kimble says:

        I have been beaten twice by different men in my lifetime – both times I was way more physically injured than Rihanna – neither man went to jail … Both got probation, anger management and community service – pretty much what CB got!

    • Onyx XV says:

      The fact that Chris Brown is an immature d*ck who is incapable of managing his anger is most definitely NOT a dead horse – that is alive and well, and he shows it every chance he gets.

    • Happymom says:

      How has he apologized or done anything to make amends? He was just pissed that he got called out on being a violent thug. He’s disgusting.

    • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

      People seem to get their faces and properties busted up when he’s around and they’re rewarded for that with…the hospital bills he doesn’t pay? I believe that he’s unrepentent because he’s a recidivist who thought he was playing the press and public like a fiddle when he showed up on the Ossified King Show dressed up in his Little Boy Blue uniform and had his mother make excuses for him and could barely for wait one hot minute to have passed before he was thumbing his nose at everyone who believed he was being sincere in that apology.

      Every day wherein he chooses not to atone, not to make self-improvement by whatever means to enrich his own life and show some regard for the lives of people who aren’t him, every day when he’s the non-apologetic kind of ‘sorry’ is a missed opportunity. ‘I’m sorry’ is just a phrase, any three-year-old could spit it out, but if the actions don’t reflect the words any three-year-old could recognize it.

      Chris Brown doesn’t care about forgiveness–and why should he care when his celebrity status with full benefits gets renewed because he played the part of the penitent for a couple of hours and wore his little blue bowtie like it was a hair shirt? Every celebrity benefits from his pseudo-downfall, right? If people are watching him, it takes some of the pressure off of oneself, it can thrown in his face at a later date when the heat is shifted, or you can look like a knight in peaceable armour by doing the super-controversial thing by telling everyone that beating women is wrong. Granted, it IS wrong, it is so, so, so wrong and I wish more people spoke out, but how about jumping on that bandwagon only three-and-a-half years after the fact?

      Maybe if he felt as though he was doing something wrong, maybe if he didn’t continue on his destruction streak unabated, maybe if he cheated at the game and was still rewarded the prize after everyone knew the story and for all of that still stomp around because he didn’t get a bigger prize people would be more willing to extend that forgiveness. Like Ned Flanders’ mother said, ‘We’ve tried nothing and we’re all out ideas’ isn’t exactly the most gentlemanly thing to do and doesn’t suggest that there’s a recognition of the fact that *something* he did or does would warrant a need for someone’s forgiveness.

      I’d love to see Judge Greg Mathis put the pain on this kid like he does with all the woman beaters who sleaze into his courtroom.

    • Double Negative says:

      You missed the point about Chris being unapologetic. If he acted as though he were truly sorry, he may have gotten some slack. Yet, he continues to act entitled. What he did was very serious. Period. What is more frightening is he still makes music and his fan base are females. That’s why this is so dangerous. Wake up, he is just an entertainer.

  10. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    I haven’t heard a song of Chris Brown’s but I can’t imagine his voice would be any more annoying than Adam Levines falsetto.

    In the big box hell mart where I worked, the hapless employees were treated to the same 10 tunes for two years, played over and over and over “and she weeeeeellll be looooaavvved” was one of them. When I hear Mr Levines whining voice I want to screech like Christina Aguilera.

    • jess says:

      I’ll take Adams falsetto voice over Chris’s voice anyday. Chris’s voice is so whiny and he sounds like he hasnt gone through puberty yet. He makes Justin Beiber sound like Barry White.

  11. Dahlia Verlaine says:

    They are both a§§holes BUT I’d prefer a cheating one over a beating one.

  12. Cel says:

    CB beat a stupid woman (yes RiRi is stupid for staying in contact with him) and AL sleeps with stupid women without using protection – they are both repulsive to me.

    • NYC_girl says:

      I agree. But if you choose to f*ck a guy who doesn’t want to use a condom, esp if it’s a guy like him, you’re stupid. I know some women would still do it, but at what price?

  13. candygirl says:

    It seems more and more celebs are trying to gain PR off their alledged ‘hatred’ for CB. Yes he was absolutely disgusting for beating a woman but what do ppl hope to gain from this constant tirade of anti-chris nonsense. He has paid the price and rightly so. He is a convicted criminal, did hard labour and suffered major financial loss and abuse which is becoming like bullying more and more. The media have used CB as a scapegoat but no1 seems to highlight the amazing work DV charities are doing rather than just saying you hate CB is going to achieve nothing. As a victim of abuse himself CB has demons he needs to tackle he is young and need a second chance to prove himself. Don’t forget all the other celebs like Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen and more recently Mayweather.

    Very biased

    • Amelia says:

      Not that it counts for anything, but I boycott anything and everything to do with Mel Gibson on principle too. I even turned off Chicken Run. Little cuz was not happy…

    • Veruca says:

      @candygirl —

      If you think Gibson & Sheen get a pass on this site, you’ve obviously not been here very long.

      CB (as stated above) didn’t do just one thing — it was several. And don’t hand me that “he’s had a tough life” shit, either. I know plenty who’ve had it worse and didn’t end up uber-gobillionaires (to quote a friend) & I don’t see them beating the sh*t out of women, throwing chairs through windows, or annoying the hell out of their neighbors.

      He’s an a–hole. Sorry if that bursts your bubble ’cause you think he’s got talent.

      I suppose you think it’s a ‘race thing’. Talk about scapegoating.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      “he is young and needs a second chance to prove himself”

      Chris Brown has had MULTIPLE second chances but unfortunately, he is crippled by a violent temper combined with the infantile, spoiled nature of a childish brat. He keeps getting into fights, keeps making excuses, and continues to show anger and hate to anyone that doesn’t automatically forgive him. NOBODY is obligated to forgive him. And please don’t bring up other celebs who are not the subject of this post. But just to be clear- I hate Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson as much as I hate Brown. They’re all assholes who hate women, period.

    • busy ramone says:

      Hard labour?!?! LOL

      What hard labour did he do??? I didn’t realize he was put to work in salt mines!

      • Suzy (from Ontario, Canada) says:

        Exactly what I was thinking! Hard labour? Clearly my definition of hard labour is very different from candygirl! Didn’t he pick up trash or something? Sheesh, my kids used to do that as volunteers once a week at our local park! Hardly backbreaking work!

        The reason I can’t stand CB is that he still doesn’t really think he’s done anything wrong. I’ve never heard a sincere apology, just excuses. And since it happened he’s thrown a chair threw a window, gotten into numerous fights in bars and generally acted like an A-hole anytime anyone asks him a question. The guy is barely literate. I don’t think I’ve heard him actually string an entire sentence together properly. Why should he get a pass? There’s lots of talented young singers out there with more talent than him and much better attitudes. I’m sick of his spoiled child entitled act.

        As for Adam Levine…don’t watch The Voice and have only seen him on Anderson one afternoon but he was very polite and very articulate. Don’t know much about him or his personal life but I doubt he’s forcing anyone to sleep with him, or to do so without using protection. I did see a clip of him being interviewed with his ex-girlfriend and he seemed genuinely in love with her.

        I like his music. It’s catchy. I love the song Wake Up Call. Wasn’t a big fan of Moves Like Jagger but it’s grown on me over time.

    • Diana says:

      Completely agree with every word, candygirl. Well-said!!

    • Laura says:

      “hard labor” LOL

  14. yomama says:

    if Adamn doesnt like CHRIS BROWN, why does he know his songs? HMMMMMM, fck outta here!

    people need to learn how to forgive. if she can forgive him, so can you. its not that hard. life goes on.

    • Veruca says:

      Uh… no, I don’t have to forgive him.

      And just because Rihanna did, isn’t a good enough reason for me. She doesn’t appear to have the best judgment, based on her actions since.

    • claire says:

      Most battered women will return to their abusers many times before finally getting out, for a variety of reasons, but some being that they believe the sustained brainwashing by the abuser that they are lucky to have the guy and it’s all her fault.

      Others have to hold the abuser accountable when the victim is powerless to do it. Therefore, I will continue to not forgive him. He’s an abuser. He’s done nothing to change my mind about this, since the incident, he’s actually only continued to reinforce it.

  15. Tanya says:

    I find it pretty disgusting that Brown has made millions since that incident with music sales etc. NOT to mention many awards. Bad behaviour rewarded as usual..I worry one day, like a coiled spring, his rage will come out again on his newest girlfriend. He hasn’t changed…all his hissy fits and childish behaviours these past couple of years pretty much proves he’s a narcissistic, spoiled kid…it may take another decade or two of living to even put a dent in who he is now. who knows.

  16. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Put it this way: if your best friend’s husband beat her to the degree that Chris Brown beat Rianna, would you ever forgive him? I mean, even if SHE forgave him? I sure as hell wouldn’t. And this is someone that you KNOW, so why would anyone forgive Chris Brown for beating a woman senseless, when he is a complete stranger to all of us? No. Just no.

    • mewmow says:

      That was perfectly said. Period. 🙂

    • dj says:

      Perfect analogy! Ppl read literally the blow by blow description of what he did to her. No. He bit repeatedly, I just can’t too graphic. My bio parents had fights like this. It scars everyone forever. Some choose forgiveness…I will choose a cast iron skillet thank you ver much!

  17. Jellybean says:

    Chris Brown is awful. It’s a shame he is back to being somewhat famous and successful again. He has no class and needs anger management for the rest of his life.

  18. Onyx XV says:

    Good for him! Now I can like more than one thing about Adam Levine – before this the only thing I liked about him was “Sunday Morning.”

  19. Jordan says:

    Good for him on hating on Chris Brown, but I agree it was unprofessional to cut the contestant b/c he didn’t like the original artist of the song selection. What about drug abusers, artists who’ve been in jail b/c of any violence, sexists (hello, Adam), etc. Where is the line drawn for contestants to be able to choose music or do we get an hours worth of Taylor Swift songs?

  20. Anon says:

    A paragon of virtue…….hates….how ironic!!

  21. coreyi says:

    How brave is it to say you don’t like Chris Brown? I mean come on, that’s the standard, right?

  22. WOM says:

    Good on Adam Levine!

    Chris Brown assaulted a woman. If the American justice system won’t punish him properly the LEAST I can do is NOT listen to his shitty music AND continue to call attention to the fact that he committed a violent crime. I turn off the radio whenever I hear a song by Michael Jackson, Gary Glitter or Chris Brown. I think that even listening to their music is a tacit approval of their anti-social, criminal, violent, disgusting behaviors.

    Just as an aside do songwriters make money (licensing fees or royalties or something) when their songs are performed on these talent shows? If that contestant went on to the final show and his audition clip was being broadcast repeatedly, would it be money in Chris Brown’s pocket?

    • Shelly says:

      And i’m sure you still watch Charlie Sheen.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        @ Shelly-Why bring up Charlie Sheen when this post is not about him? Oh yeah, because the only line of defense for Chris Brown fans is “other dudes treat women like sh-t too!”. AWESOME. Try again, stan.

    • Shelly says:

      @TheOriginalKitten What i will come with is that your comments are either racially motivated or you have a hard-on for Chris Brown. If were going to talk about domestic abuse in general, every celebrity who has been guilty of it should be called out don’t just vilify one and use them as a punching bag, to me all this shit is racially motivated that’s America’s way, if a black man lays his self open by making such a mistake and be the “angry black man” pple like you jump on it and harp on it,totally self righteous.

      • Chordy says:

        Okay, I totally agree that Chris Brown has more defectors than white celebrities who also abuse women. However, I don’t think the answer is to give Chris Brown a free pass too. I think the answer is to hold all abusers accountable for their actions. It’s important to keep pointing out that the likes of Charlie Sheen and Roman Polanski are getting a free pass because they’re white, but you can do that without absolving Chris Brown. Also, at the end of the day, Chris Brown still has a red hot career.

      • Amelia says:

        Oh for GOD’S SAKE, are you really going to pull the race card?
        Chris Brown is a vile, pathetic excuse for a human being. As are Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, Roman Polanksi, Garry Glitter etc.
        The reason we are ‘harping’ on about Chris Brown is because he is one of the subjects of this article and also, he has shown little to no remorse about what he’s done. As someone else mentioned, his general attitude is ‘bitch deserved it’.
        Now – depressingly – it is nigh impossible to call out every celebrity who has been the aggressor in domestic abuse through the years. Partly because the numbers are going to be disgustingly high, and secondly, it also depends on where you draw the line when it comes to abuse. Are you classing what TC has allegedly done (screaming the walls down) as abuse? Or are we keeping to the purely physical?
        And Chris Brown did not ‘make a mistake’. A mistake is typing ‘9’ instead of ‘8’. A mistake is sending the wrong drycleaning out. This was a crime, pure and simple. THAT is why people are adversed to him. THAT is why his fan base and career took a heavy blow afterwards, it is NOT because of his race. I think Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin are revolting. And why is that? It is because of their abusive behaviour. The same goes for Chris Brown.
        And I hold the same contempt for Brown as I do Roman Polanksi (even more so for the latter).
        So instead of pulling the race card, either build a better argument, or gtfo.

      • Jordan says:

        I agree with Chordy that there is definitely a race issue on how we treat celebrities who abuse women but that does not excuse Chris Brown or give him a free pass. It would be nice if women stood behind victims of DV, regardless of the race or popularity of their abusers.

      • Miz Misanthrope says:

        Sorry pulling the race card makes your whole argument invalid. Especially since as Amelia pointed out Roman Polanski is just as hated as CB…or wait…we only hate him because he’s Jewish right? Not because of that whole raping a 13 year old girl thing.

        Men who abuse women and think they can get away with it-like CB-are disgusting, vile creatures who should be rocketed into the burning center of the sun. All of them. Regardless of race, religion or whatever other lame distinction you can make about them.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Shelly-First of all my boyfriend is black (as all other long-time C/B posters here know)-and guess what? HE AGREES WITH ME. Have a hard-on for Chris Brown? Why would I want a man who beats and treats women like trash when I have a man who grew up WITH NOTHING in the f*cking GHETTO and made a fantastic life for himself and treats women the way his mother taught him to? Really, what is your point-that it’s OK for him to beat women because “he’s black and that”s what black men do”? Because that’s EXACTLY what you’re insinuating- because he’s black he should get a “free pass”. My boyfriend would disagree as would any rational black person. Not that I have to justify anything to you and your silly juvenile comments but my boyfriend thinks your precious Chris Brown is a POS as well. Is HIS opinion also racially motivated?? I mean him being a black man and all??? F*ck, you do a disservice to all black people with your BS, Shelly. You can take your “race card” shit and shove it up your ass. When the Mel Gibson sh*t went down I was ALL OVER this site as were all commenters, talking about what apunk that guy is. Again, I don’t need to justify myself to you but you do NOT know me. Not by a long-shot so save your judgement. You are PATHETIC.

        Someone who is in an interracial relationship and knows MORE about racism than your ignorant ass thinks. BOOM.

    oh dear. Now I am Team Adam for a hot minute.

  24. Shelly says:

    Wow…who died and made him God.

  25. Rux says:

    I do not know if I am in this alone, but every single music insider/artist/professional, etc. that has continued to stand by CB makes me ill. I know my turning the station or skipping his songs on Pandora, not downloading their songs is a small gesture which does not do any real harm to CB or his Backers, but I cannot for the life of me forgive this man EVER. It’s a pity he is talented but then again so was Roman Polansky and look what that guy was and probably still is capable of. I am sure CB is not far from that as well.

    • Shelly says:

      Oh…so he’s a rapist now. You pple kill me, glass houses pple, glass houses.

      • Amelia says:

        Your the one who jumped to rapist Shelly. All Rux did was insinuate he was capable of similar things. And if I’m being totally honest, I wouldn’t trust a person who has so little respect for women with my drink.

      • keats says:

        Ok, glass houses. I have never raped anyone or brutalized anyone. Excuse me while I throw all the stones in Chris Brown’s direction. Or maybe you don’t know what that expression means?

  26. Ming says:

    Woooooo, what a risk taker our little Adam is.

    Go on tumblr and say Tom Hiddleston sucks,(although, the tumblr people usually react to that kind of stuff with backing you a cake that says “You’re not kawaii” or something)

    P.S. Of course Tom Hiddleston is awesome. Especially in real life, HD and tumblr.

  27. So What? says:

    My only problem with white celebrities who profess hate for Chris Brown is that these same white celebs NEVER call out Charlie Sheen who’s beat SEVERAL women.

    Or Bill Maher. Bill beat one of his former black girlfriends and called her an N-word. Not a peep out of these women lovin’ champions of justice against violence against women.

    Miranda Lambert hates Chris Brown…ok. Until you consider the fact that her adulterous hubby Blake Shelton follows Charlie Sheen. How come Miranda Lambert’s fat ass never calls out Charlie Sheen for his violence against women?

    Hating on Chris ISN’T my prob with these white celebutard Chris Brown haters – Chris Brown IS contemptible – my problem is these same white celebs don’t ever call out famous white liberal men who do EVEN worse.

    Bullsh-t double standard. If you call out the black man then also call out the white says I.

    • cr says:

      “white liberal men” what does supposed political affiliation have to do with it?

      • Chordy says:

        Liberals think of themselves as progressives, and sometimes that can lead to them being blind to their own problematic thinking. Some of the most exasperating bigots I’ve met have been people with liberal politics, because they believe they’re immune to buying into social stigmas.

      • cr says:

        Still doesn’t answer my question-what does it have to do with Chris Brown and Adam Levine?

      • Sunny says:

        @ Chordy – Really? You’re really turning this in to “white liberals are hypocrites”? Hypocrisy is everywhere, period. However, I will say it seems interesting to me how few “Christians” are tolerant or loving towards others who hold different beliefs. Isn’t the crux of Christianity to treat others with love? Most of the lunatics championing the defense of marriage act have cheated on their spouses, condemn the LGBTQ community while they’re secretly off having that type of relationship, abusing drugs, beating their partners, etc. How many liberals that identify as Christian do you see spewing hatred on a daily basis? Of COURSE liberal whites are hypocritical – I think it’s in the job description for anyone who is involved in politics – but the hatred I have seen from the conservative community who uses God to be hateful is far more pervasive. It’s not everyone, but it’s on both sides. I just happen to see it far more with conservatives, and I suppose because religion is such a huge part of their arguments I find it especially odious when that is turned into an excuse for hate mongering.

    • Chordy says:

      Did you read So What’s comment? The point is, it’s not exactly brave to condemn a black man for his actions. People LOVE to condemn black men for their actions. Especially when you’re giving a pass to someone like Charlie Sheen who has a loooooong history of abusing women. I mean, he shot Kelly Preston. Like, with a gun. Adam Levine’s not refusing to hear songs by Aerosmith or Phil Spector or other white musicians with a history of abuse. It’s a valid point that deserves to be taken seriously.

      • cr says:

        But you still didn’t answer the question-what does political affiliation have to do with it?
        The racial (not political) issue is a valid point, but… it still seems like an excuse to excuse Chris Brown.

      • Chordy says:

        Again, liberals think of themselves as progressives. By nature of being progressives, they should be aware of the various social iniquities out there, and how those iniquities may shape their own thought processes. A liberal white man may be thinking “It’s wrong to beat women, therefore, I hate Chris Brown.” That is a GREAT thing to think. However, if you’re going to say that beating women is wrong, and that you hate people who beat women, you’re being a hypocrite of you condemn Chris Brown but run around yelling WINNING and watching Charlie Sheen shows. Race is part of politics because politics is a social science.

      • cr says:

        So where does this leave conservatives who don’t like Chris Brown?

      • Chordy says:

        So What was not addressing conservatives who hate Chris Brown. So What was addressing white celebrities who call out a black man for reprehensible behavior, but ignore it within their own social group. How is a black man being violent of more concern than a white man being violent? Bill Maher has repeatedly proven himself to be a violent misogynist and has suffered very little in the court of public opinion. In fact, he’s exalted as some liberal hero. This does not excuse Chris Brown, nor should it exempt him from public scorn. However, it’s not unfair to ask people to take a look at how prejudices may be coloring not only who they hate, but who they accept.

  28. skuddles says:

    This makes me think a bit more highly of Levine. More celebs need to be vocal in their dislike of Chris “Crack Booger” Brown.

  29. Stacy says:

    I do not condone what Chris Brown did but if I hated all the guys that have hit thier women I wouldn’t be listening or watching anything theses days. Some of them have done it repeatedly.


    A few off the top of my head that did the same thing but more than once!! …

    Charlie Sheen
    Wesly Snipes
    Jimmy Hendrix
    Sean Connery
    Burt Reynolds
    James Brown
    David Hasselhoff
    Harry Morgan (MASH)
    Tracy Lawrence (County singer)
    Joe Elliott (Def Leppard)
    Christian Slater

    • cr says:

      Maybe CB should have an Abusers Open Post-so everyone who’s complaining that ‘they’re not mentioning so-and-so’s abusing’ can then rail against them: Charlie Sheen, Jerry Sandusky, etc. We’ll be here for days.

    • cr says:

      And in the spirit of gender ‘equality’, don’t forget women can also be the abuser/batterer:

    • Jordan says:

      It is interesting that Eminem was an abuser, repeatedly had misogynistic lyrics about beating/killing women, and also did a song WITH Rihanna about DV after she was beaten (which topped the charts), but no one mentions this every time Em’s name is brought up. Again, it doesn’t excuse Chris Brown, but it is something that people hate when white men are called out in the same regard as Chris Brown. Then again, it could be that it is b/c CB beat another famous person and if the victim is a nobody, people don’t care.

  30. Relli says:

    Wow lots of people have a lot of opinions on this, interesting.

    Yes once back in the day i had a thing for Adam Levine and may or may not own an original maroon 5 CD. Since then my love has waned, but i am happy to see him standing up for what HE BELIEVES in, it shows conviction something a lot of folks don’t have. My issue with Chris isn’t so much what happened with him and Rhianna (although it was terrible)its how he has acted after and since then incident.

    NOW my knowledge Chris before he beat Rhianna was limited, as in I had seen his gum commercial and thought it was catchy song. But ever since then his attitude of the world owing him an apology for not automatically forgiving his was disturbing. He has zero remorse for ANY of his actions and his self-entitlement and lack of self-realization is so gross I have to turn the channel anytime i hear his songs on the radio or see him on TV. Chris Brown is the poster child for what happens when you don’t teach your children to be accountable. Yeah I have seen Mama Browns tweets, shes no prize pig herself.

    • lanna says:

      Mama Brown seems completely mental. A couple years back, she went on a rant about how Chris was hand picked by God to preform some special holy task. Or something like that, it was pretty far out there.

      ITA with your post. Wasn’t there a story about Mama Brown getting beaten up regularly by Chris’s dad? I guess there’s some small (very small) part of me that pities these people, but most of me wishes they’d drop off the face of the earth. CB had the gall to act like a whiny, entitled little brat after committing felony assault. As far as I’m concerned, some crimes should never be forgiven. He’ll probably carry his woman-beater reputation with him for life, and that’s as it should be. It’s weird to me that so many people are willing to just shrug it off.

      Props to Levine for speaking his mind.

      • Relli says:

        Exactly, i am 99.9% sure of all you posted! honestly knew all I needed to know once she started to surface. Not that we should all be judged by our parents actions BUT if I was his PR team I would have figured out a way to keep her quiet. Her crazy a$s and his lack of remorse was revolting and incredibly disturbing. I just can’t with him, all I see is pure evil.

        Dont get me started on rhinana! I think they both have A LOT of issues. But her I just want to draw her a warm bath, put her in a cardigan, and introduce her to nice guy.

  31. So What? says:

    Stacy, good list o’ bad dudes – black AND white. I didn’t realize Sean Connery was violent. Damn shame…I really loves me a Scottish accent.

  32. Jax says:


  33. Jax says:

    Does it feel like to anyone else that CB has a better well spoken PR team at the moment? One that stupidly pushes his agenda that it aint no big thing no more. Trolling websites ( a la CO$) saying forgive forgive or but look at this person to distract from the issue. Whatever. No argument for Chris beating Rhianna or that she forgave him will ever change my mind about him. If I want to discuss other celebrities issues with abuse, I will jump on that train if I choose when they be newsworthy. And if they are contrite, I might forgive. That’s my decision. Just as it is the PR trolls decision to continue to support that POS.

  35. Sharolight says:

    Adam Levine needs to be fired for being unprofessional. Someone singing a Chris Brown song cannot be equated with one by Gary pedophile Glitter. Cheap publicity from Adam and it is sick and disgusting and racist.

  36. larry says:

    What’s worse about all this for that Voice contestant is he didn’t even pick his own song. The producers pick the songs they perform for their blind audition. They can’t pick their own songs.

  37. MrsNix says:

    Someone singing a Chris Brown song is clearly either a person of low character or someone who is too ignorant of the goings on in the industry to be on a public show like the Voice. Yes, someone who continues to financially or publicly support the art and career of a woman-beater is a person of low character…just like people who buy tickets to Roman Polanski films. Yep. Low character. I said it and I mean it. You allow people like this to traipse through society with no consequences for their CRIMES, then you’re guilty by proxy. You’ve openly declared that you don’t mind if Chris Brown beat Rihanna (or any other woman) to a bloody mess; you like his “music.” And…you don’t care if Roman Polanski raped girls or coerced underage actresses into his bed; you just really like his movies. That makes you low, and it makes you someone without standards or any kind of value code.

    Levine may be a douche bag, but at least he has standards.

    IF the kid was forced to sing that song and, after objecting to singing something put out by Chris Brown, the producer whacked him with a microphone and said, “NO! You WILL sing this,” then I agree with some previous posters that Levine was wrong. Otherwise…nope.

    • MrsNix says:

      It’s the reason I don’t watch Mel Gibson films anymore. It’s the reason I won’t watch Lohan films anymore. Those two people are absolute moral vacuums. I don’t want to support either one of them. One is a girlfriend-beating, racist pervert and the other is a drug abusing skank. I don’t think Michael Vick should have ever been allowed back into the NFL, and I refused to watch any games in which he was playing. It’s just WRONG to support these people or to ignore their acts of violence or crime as though they didn’t matter. They do matter.

      At some point, people in a society have to say, “Okay, once you’ve been this bad…once you’ve crossed this line right here, we will no longer support you.”

      It’s not about retribution or forgiveness. Forgive them if you think that’s healthy or whatever, but their free ride on the public fame train should be OVER. Once you have breached the social contract that egregiously, your public adulation and participation in society as a person of fame should end.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        It’s the same with the Governator and TC for me, as well as Gibson and Blohan. (And I don’t like Douche Levine, either.)

        Guess I’m just one of those “hold a grudge” folk.

      • Sunny says:

        Cheers to that! I remember reading on here a little while back about Lohan and what a disaster she is and the LM movie would be…but they would just have to see that trainwreck! I posted a short comment to please not tune in. Any publicity is good publicity is true – it doesn’t matter how bad a product is or if people are just tuning in to watch how bad it will be, money is money, and this is why celebs are still making so much. I don’t watch Jersey Shore on principle – I will NOT contribute to those ratings. I will NOT buy perfume by or featuring someone I don’t like, I won’t buy their shoes, there are so many other choices out there.If everyone did hold people accountable for their actions I’m sure they would stop getting these opportunities. I vehemently boycott anything in my home that has to do with Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson, Tom Cruise, Chris Brown, Roman Polansky, a spoiled housewife, exploited child, a Kardashian and many others – someone said if they were to do that there would be nothing left to watch, but pick up a damn book. Watch the history or discovery channel or animal planet, who cares, but every single time someone tunes to that channel, rents that DVD or downloads that song someone out there is making money and I’ll be damned if I’m contributing to another spoiled, entitled celebrity making more money than a doctor, social worker, teacher or soldier will ever see in their lifetime. It’s positively disgraceful, and it absolutely can be avoided. Thank you for doing what bit you can, and know there ARE others out there who try to do the same.

  38. Kosmos says:

    I’m not a fan of Adam’s either, but I agree with all the people who do not promote Chris Brown. Yes, he beat her, and because he’s uneducated and rough, he will probably beat someone again because he’s also got a nasty temper. Even more than that, I don’t care for Chris Brown because of his personality, his vibe, and what he has turned into. He’s just not cool, in my book, and I don’t feel that he’s someone I want to support. He’s kind of a low-life who is making money in the music business, but that does not change who he is inside, or outside. NOT a supporter.

  39. Sharolight says:

    I do not hold grudges except for pedophiles , murderers and racists. Adam is out of line. Who is he to censor what I listen to when it is not by a murderer or pedophile/racist.

  40. Crystal says:

    Ugh I hate Chris Brown and his lame ass music. Him and his pencil dick can diaf for all I care but if any of you don’t think there’s a double standard in the way he’s treated compared to all the white men in hollywood then you’re all f*cking delusional tbh. It doesn’t surprise me though considering the fact that Michael Fassbender has actual fans on here.

    Eminem could bring out an album tomorrow and these thirsty bitches in the industry wouldn’t have a damn thing to say but people are always on CB’s dick. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a disgusting human being but the media still holds it down for all their white men. Charlie Sheen, Josh Brolin, Eminem, Sean Penn, Mark Wahlberg, Bill Murray, Kirk Douglas etc.

    None of these artists say shit about those men but CB is an easy target in the media because black men are always an easy target. CB may not be the victim of a double standard (he desreves all the shit he gets) but other white men in the media are benefitting from it and you can convince yourself otherwise but it’s the damn truth.

    It’s kinda like how people (mainly white people, cause they always got shit to say) are the first to point out misogyny, degrading lyrics and oversexualisation in hip/hop and r&b but the same people seem to have amnesia when it comes to sexism in genres that they dominate like rock and metal. I’ve listened to some disgusting lyrics in metal songs but noone ever calls out that genre. Hmmmm. I wonder why ??

    People will dismiss this and say that race isn’t a factor but don’t get it twisted, when you’re a person of colour race is always a factor. I’m not saying people should ease up on CB. It would just be nice if all the white people who are so eager to call out CB would call out some of their own damn people. I mean some actors still have the nerve to support Polanski and Charlie Sheen gets a free pass because what ?? He’s funny ??? Ugh.

    “The level of intensity and the degree of
    vigilance that celebrities and some in the
    general public show towards Brown is less
    about a concern for a black woman
    experiencing violence as it is a general
    obsession with and policing of what people
    assume to be the inherently criminal nature
    of black people in general.”,0,3702272.story

    Can you imagine if his beat up Taylor ‘virginal princess’ Swift?? His ass would be locked up but beat up Rihanna and all he has to do is clean up some rubbish.

    And I can’t believe some people in here had the nerve to type ‘pulling the race card’. What kind of ignorant bullshit is that? Race is always a factor even if you don’t want to see it in the utopia you live in where black people are treated the same as white people. ‘Pulling the race card’ GTFO. I’m ‘pulling the race card’ because the so called ‘race card’ has been playing me my whole damn life. And btw some you guys’ white privilege is showing with how defensive you get when your ass gets called out.

    Some people on here. SMDH. You can talk about ‘regardless of race’ until you’re blue in the face but it won’t change the fact that noone ever thinks about us and our actions regardless of our race. Some of y’all need to wake the f*ck up. Some people don’t want to admit that their treatment of certain celebs is often fueled by racial tropes like Scary Black Man Syndrome because of the stigma of being considered a racist or something and it’s easier to proclaim “I don’t see color, or race is not a factor”. Yeah right.

    Don’t mind me though. I’m just ‘pulling the race card’. *rolls eyes*

    • Anon says:


      I agree; and add with the utmost respect that CB myopic critics GFTS.

    • Shannon says:

      I think if this discussion were separated from Chris Brown more people would be rational about it and agree with you. It’s difficult for many to simultaneously hate the shit out of Chris Brown and also recognize that they have failed to be so offended when white celebs do similar things.

      And for the record, I haven’t seen a single show/movie/whatever featuring Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson, or any other misogynist since their actions have been publicized. Ditto for Eminem’s music. I have never understood how my friends can listen to him.

    I never thought I would say this but I am firmly Team Levine.

    And yes, I do hold Mel Gibson, Roman Polanski, Woody Allen and Charlie Sheen accountable too. They disgust me just as much and I want nothing to do with their work. The double standard towards these abusers because they are “artists” astounds me.
