Adam Levine almost got himself Dixie Chick-ed after he was overheard saying “I hate this country” during this week’s shocking eliminations on The Voice.
Of course, Levine quickly nipped the controversy in the bud but pledging his full, red-white-and-blue support to Amerikuh via this statement to US Weekly:
I obviously love my country very much and my comments last night were made purely out of frustration. Being a part of The Voice, I am passionately invested in my team and want to see my artists succeed. Last night’s elimination of Judith and Sarah was confusing and downright emotional for me and my comments were made based on my personal dissatisfaction with the results. I am very connected to my artists and know they have long careers ahead, regardless of their outcome on the show.
And now everything is fine.
