Adam Levine watches way too much television. In August, the Maroon 5 singer caused an uproar when he criticized MTV, and yesterday he engaged in a battle of tweets with Fox News after the channel played a Maroon 5 song. "Dear Fox News, don't play our music on your evil f------ channel ever again. Thank you," Levine wrote. It's unclear how Levine knew his band's music was on Fox News in the first place, and whether his tweet has to do with the channel's conservative political alignments or the fact that he's NBC property.
A pair of Fox News anchors, Red Eye hosts Greg Gutfeld and Andy Levy, took Levine's jab as diplomatically as possible by responding with their own salvo that criticized Maroon 5. "Dear @AdamLevine, don't make crappy f------ music ever again. Thank you," Levy tweeted. "Maroon 5's bio strangely fails to note the band was developed by the CIA as part of its enhanced interrogation techniques program." Gutfeld added, "Dear Adam, that's not music" before unfurling a spree of Levine jokes:
Fox News will probably not be moving like Jagger any time soon. Levine has yet to reply since his initial tweet, but a cover of Herman Cain's rendition of "Imagine" would be a worthy response.
