ADAM LEVINE launched into a mini-tirade on Twitter the other night, because he was under the MISTAKEN impression that CHILDISH GAMBINO's "This Is America" video had gotten snubbed by the "VMAs".
He said, quote, "This year, Childish Gambino released one of the most impactful, thought provoking and intelligent videos ever made. I'm sure he doesn't care that he wasn't nominated for a VMA because he's cool as [eff] and everything.
"But I care. Because I'm NOT that cool. And I still want MTV to mean something again. But it won't. Ever. K bye."
But Adam deleted that message after he found out that "This Is America" was actually nominated for SEVEN awards, including Video of the Year.
He replaced it with an apology, saying, quote, "I'm sorry MTV. Still hate you though. But mostly, I'm sorry."
Then he posted a video apology. He explained his mistake as a GOOGLING error. He also took a shot at MTV for not nominating MAROON 5's "Girls Like You" video.
He said, quote, "Big shocker. It doesn't surprise me. They always blow us off."
He ended the video by saying, quote, "I'm just going to come out here and say, 'I [effed] up. My bad.' Sorry, MTV. You did good. Now, make sure he wins."
