Not everyone was excited for the VMAs this past weekend. Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine broadcast his thought via Twitter, saying, "The VMA's. one day a year when MTV pretends to still care about music. I'm drawing a line in the sand. F**k you VMA's."

Tell us how you really feel, Adam! While the man is entitled to an opinion, why all the hate against the awards show -- which has in fact handed him over a Moonman in the past? 

In an interview with MSNs Wonderwall, he explains his thoughts on the matter:

"Listen, MTV is a very large international organization, and to be honest with you, internationally speaking, MTV plays videos, which of course I love," he says. "MTV exists outside of the United States in a very real way, as a station that plays videos and other programming as well, but they do play a lot of videos. MTV U.S. hasn't played a video on television in years in its entirety, and I just find it a little silly that they have the VMAs, considering they don't play videos and they don't support music really, and then one day a year, they decide to focus on music alone, and I have an issue with that."

Additionally, he says he also feels like he's never been invited to the party, so to speak. 

"I was also upset that we've never really been included," he added. "Of course, I was a little bit jilted. At least at some certain point in our career, we should've been more involved, and obviously they responded with saying that we won a Moonman in 2004 -- which was 7 years ago, by the way -- which was great and we thank them for that. We also weren't invited to perform on the VMAs that year either. We weren't even there. So we basically didn't get invited the year we won either. So I was pissed, and I'm pissed off in general because I don't think that it's music television anymore, and I don't think they should pretend to be."

What are your thoughts on the VMAs? Do you think Adam has a point, or is he just upset because he feels left out? Sound off in the comments below!

    He's got a point, if you want to watch Music Videos it's utterly pointless to go to MTV as all they show is endless Jersey Shore, The Real World, Cribs and other incredibly crappy I.Q. dulling time sinks.
