Adam Levine is the lead singer for Maroon 5 and one of the four coaches on NBC's The Voice. He has finally issued an apology for an insensitive remark he made about Adam Lambert after the televised talent competition contestant Nakia sang the American Idol alum's hit song "Whaddya Want From Me."
The Maroon 5 vocalist upset Adam Lambert fans after telling Nakia that he didn't know who sang "Whaddya Want From Me." He also commented that his version was probably better than the original. Although Glamberts everywhere were furious, Lambert himself graciously sent several messages via Twitter in Levine's defense.
It is surprising that Levine hadn't heard the song before, especially since he has a career in the music industry himself. However, that doesn't necessarily mean that his comments were intentionally intended to insult Adam Lambert.
In a new development, Adam Levine has sent the singer an apology of sorts on his own Twitter account. "No disrespect intended for @adamlambert ...I honesty had never heard the song before. I'm not one to take cheap shots like that."
Adam Lambert, who never seemed upset to begin with, issued a casual acceptance of Levine's explanation: "@adamlevine saaaaall goooooo[d]." Hopefully, his fans will be just as forgiving.
