I know that NBC likes to cross-promote (Jack Donaghy would say “synergy”), but of all the coaches on The Voice, Adam Levine is the weirdest choice to host Saturday Night Live. He comes across more bitchy than funny on the show–honestly, Blake Shelton would be a better host but I’m sure he’s busy making out with Miranda Lambert.
Once, Adam Levine wore a “FEMINIST” tee shirt during a performance and that really endeared him to me. But then I realized he was probably wearing it to impress a girl because he is not capable of intelligent critical thought. Here are some reasons why I hate this douche.
1. Maroon 5
It’s like, so close to “Fix You” without actually being “Fix You.”
2. Poseur tattoos
I feel like someone with all these tattoos and an interest in music should be in a band that sounds less like Maroon 5 and more like a band that writes their own songs (pick one). He pretends to be the “alternative” one on The Voice, when CeeLo is the one with the weird personality who is actually making alternative music and Blake gives his contestants the freedom to make their own choices.
3. He is a total asshole.
It is really easy to find interviews online where Levine comes off as a smug, entitled prick. How about this one, where he says he wanted to get rich so he doesn’t have to do chores? Or when he talked shit about the Roxy on The Voice because once Maroon 5 wasn’t given a dressing room ten years ago and he blames the club? He misplaces anger about society and reality TV and blames the people of Honey Boo Boo for the decline of western civilization. More shockers: he stays in the band to get girls and his preferred form of birth control is the pull out method! WHAT A WINNER, LADIES.
4. He makes poor acting choices.
Didn’t we learn anything from Glee? Why do people continue to hitch their wagons to Ryan Murphy, who fails us time and time again? Levine was on season 2 of American Horror Story but SPOILER he dies a brutal death (well, apparently, since I don’t watch this shit). If he really wanted people to like him (and for synergy!), he should have guested on Community. I guess that’s why he’s doing SNL!
5. Maroon 5 again
REALLY WITH THIS SHIT.
