On Tuesday, October 24, Adam Levine had a chat with Howard Stern in SiriusXM and they discussed “The Voice” winners and their respective music career handlers. However, instead of delivering compliments, Levine expressed his disappointment by using an odd, candid, harsh words pinpointing the record labels associated with the singing competition.
According to Washington Post, the topic was opened when Stern compared “American Idol” to other singing competitions. The 61-year-old asked the Maroon 5 frontman why the long-time running singing show was able to produce winners to legitimate stardom, and so far, no other singing competition has been able to “really capture that lighting in a bottle.”
In response to this, Levine did not hesitate to beat around the bush and pinpointed the blame to the record labels who’s in-charge in building up the music careers of the winners.
“I’ll be relatively cryptic about what I think the big problem is,” Levine said.
Based on the translation posted by the site, what Levine’s trying to say was, the winners of “The Voice” show lands a deal with a record label, Universal Music Group. In this company, each singer will be distributed to different labels depending on their music genre—there’s Republic Records where Sawyer Fredericks and Tessanne Chin belongs to and there’s Nashville’s Big Machine who’s handling Cassadee Pope and Danielle Bradbery.
“…But they go to a record label that f—s it up,” Levine said.
Adding on, Levine also think that the people in charge appears to have no any strategic plan for the singers’ career.
“Record labels are — our business is the worst right now. No one knows what they’re doing,” he added.
“The show ends, and they’re like, ‘Okay, they don’t matter to me anymore.’ This is how they feel on the other end. I don’t understand why they don’t care.” –Wahington Post
Levine went on by saying that he’s glad that he was able to criticize these people on air and maybe it will make them angry and “F—off, so we can get somebody else to do it.”
At the end of this topic, Adam Levine pointed out that “The Voice” is doing great when it comes to nurturing the talents of these singers and he hopes that there would be someone who will continue it.
On the other hand, in his interview with Stern, Levine denied Maroon 5 band’s Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show rumors.
According to Ace Showbiz, Levine clarified that he doesn’t know where those rumors came from, however, he admitted that they always wanted to perform at the event even before these rumors emerged.
