Adam Levine Calls Out American Idol Over LGBTQ Contestants


If there is anything Adam Levine loves more than showcasing his muscular torso, it’s battling homophobia. God bless America that he can do both at the same time. In addition to discussing his gay brother and musical career, Adam Levine’s gay right comments in Out have him putting American Idol on blast for being less than open about having LGBTQ performers. “What’s always pissed me off about Idol is wanting to mask that, for that to go unspoken,” the Maroon 5 singer fumes, pointing out that The Voice had 4 gay contestants this season. “C’mon. You can’t be publicly gay? At this point? On a singing competition? Give me a break. You can’t hide basic components of these people’s lives. The fact that The Voice didn’t have any qualms about being completely open about it is a great thing.”  Somewhere Clay Aiken is in the process of leaving his agent 2,000 voice messages, telling him to get him on this show, stat.

Levine returns next season to join the other The Voice judges Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, and Blake Shelton. Levine will concede, however, “I can’t f— with American Idol. It’s a cultural institution. On The Voice, we just care about a different list of things. It’s for a different type of person, I guess.” Right, for example the type of person who can actually sing. Yes, we just went there.
