Think you were exhausted by the MTV Video Music Awards? Maybe not as much as Adam Levine.
The singer took to Twitter Sunday to hate tweet about the event.
“It’s always exciting to see how utterly horrible the VMAs will be,” he said in the NSFW tweet. “They really delivered so far this year.”
He followed up his initial reaction to the award show with an explanation for his confusion.
“Julia Michaels gets cut off while she’s singing and Lorde gets to NOT sing her whole song,” he tweeted.
The technical difficulties in Michael’s performance might have been what pushed Levine over the edge.
He tweeted his support for the singer just an hour earlier, writing, “My girl @imjmichaels is in the final round for Best New Artist at the VMAs! Use hashtag #VoteJuliaMichaels to vote. Retweets don’t count! (smiley face emoji)”
Levine’s wife, Behati Prinsloo, was also upset by the flub in Michael’s performance, clearly rooting for the new artist.
“Wow @vmas thanks for talking over then cutting to commercial half way through #juliamichaels performance. #votejuliamichaels,” she tweeted.
This isn’t the first time the Maroon 5 frontman has had some problems with the award show.
In 2014, he told USA TODAY that he felt unwelcomed by the VMAs, after waiting for more than a decade after rising to fame to perform at the event.
“For many years, we felt like the uninvited dinner guests, but after much persistence and perhaps a little too much mouthing off, they seemed to have changed their minds,” Levine said. “So thank you, MTV.”
He also has a history of mouthing off about the show on Twitter.
In 2015, he wrote: “I’m five minutes into the #VMAs and I already need a shower.”
