article imageAdam Levine calls Fox News evil, says don't play my music

By Joan Firstenberg     Oct 20, 2011 in Entertainment
Los Angeles - Singer and musician Adam Levine is gay and doesn't care who knows it. Now, he's come out swinging against Fox News. He doesn't like how the Fox Network tried to hide gay performers on "Idol" and he doesn't want the channel to play his music.
The rock group, Maroon 5 front man, Adam Levine, who takes requests on the TV show, "The Voice" had one of his own this week. He told Fox News: Don’t play my music. Or, more specifically, as he put it on Twitter,
“Dear Fox News, don’t play our music on your evil f–king channel ever again. Thank you.”
The network has no official response, but Entertainment Weekly reports that Fox News hosts Andy Levy and Greg Gutfeld of the late night show "Red Eye" gave Levine a personal response on Twitter. Levy wrote back to the pop star,
“Dear Adam Levine, don’t make crappy f–king music ever again. Thank you,”
And Gutfeld also fired off tweets,
“Dear adam, That’s not music”
and
“fun joke: why did Maroon 5 cross the road? because crappy music is legal there! @adamlevine.”
This is not the first time Levine has voiced his opinion about a cable network on Twitter. In August, Levine tweeted obscenities at MTV, criticizing them for only featuring music during the 2011 Video Music Awards ceremony. He said,
“The VMA’s. One day a year when MTV pretends to still care about music. I’m drawing a line in the sand. F— you VMA’s.”
Levine is a vocal advocate for gay rights. He had previously ripped Fox's "American Idol" for suppressing the sexuality of its gay contestants. He is a judge on NBC's "The Voice," which is a rival show with "American Idol."
