Maroon 5's Levine blasts MTV programming

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 28 (UPI) -- Judging by a stinging tweet he sent out recently, Maroon 5's Adam Levine apparently won't be tuning into Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards.

Levine fired off a digital rocket calling the awards the "one day a year that MTV pretends to still care about music."

"I'm drawing a line in the sand," Levine wrote before detonating an F bomb about his feelings for the star-studded gala taking place in Los Angeles.

The Hollywood Reporter said that while Levine's Maroon 5 was honored as Best New Artist at the 2004 awards, they were not nominated this year. His seeming annoyance at the dearth of music videos on MTV echoed a similar statement Justin Timberlake made on the VMA stage in 2007.

While MTV programming may be debatable, the VMA show will include plenty of tunes with live performances by Lady Gaga, Beyonce and other top artists.
