(Newser) – Apparently Adam Levine never got the memo about how if you don't have anything nice to say about MTV having forsaken its original intent, at least don't tweet it for all the world to see: "(T)he VMA's. one day a year when MTV pretends to still care about music. I'm drawing a line in the sand. f*ck you VMA's," Levine tweeted last night. And the Maroon 5 frontman, who moonlights as a judge on The Voice, wasn't about to apologize, either, notes the Huffington Post. "(S)till waiting to have my 'jerry macguire mission statement moment of deep regret...' not happening. phew!"

MTV was not daunted, however, tweeting right back: “Soooo you'll be tuning in at 9/8C tomorrow right? BTW, bonus points if you TwitPic your 2004 Moonman!” Maroon 5 won that year.
