Adam Levine Loves His Country…He Promises!

I’m not a big Adam Levine fan, but this made me angry!

The Maroon 5 frontman sparked a huge controversy after an offhanded remark on Tuesday’s results episode of The Voice, in which he was overheard muttering “I hate this country” after his contestants Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons were eliminated due to lack of viewer votes. And then, I guess people were SOOO pissed of that he had to apologize? Come ON.

Says Levine:

“I obviously love my country very much and my comments last night were made purely out of frustration,” Levine explained to Us Weekly. Some Twitter followers called out Levine’s slam as unpatriotic, insensitive and uncalled for; the singer initially responded via Twitter by defining the terms “joke,” “humorless,” “lighthearted” and “misunderstand.” Others agreed with Levine’s outrage over the elimination results.

“Being a part of The Voice, I am passionately invested in my team and want to see my artists succeed. Last night’s elimination of Judith and Sarah was confusing and downright emotional for me and my comments were made based on my personal dissatisfaction with the results,” continued Levine, whose team member Amber Carrington still has a shot at winning this season on the NBC singing competition.

“I am very connected to my artists and know they have long careers ahead, regardless of their outcome on the show,” he continued.

Good response. I mean, come ON, people.  Do celebs have to monitor every little thing they say?!

Kelly Osbourne Lashes Out At Reporters

Kelly Osbourne has had a rough week!

First, her dad Ozzy going back to rehab and her parents splitting. That, and a beloved family pet died. Still, does that justify mistreating strangers? Hard to say.

According to The Daily Telegraph’s Joel Christie, he tried to interview Kelly about her new column in Cleo magazine, and followed her request about steering clear of family topics. Still, she started off defensive, calling Christie “presumptuous” when he mistakenly referred to her boyfriend as her fiancé. Then Christie says he simply asked:

“Your first column in the magazine is called ‘Life Is Just Shit Sometimes’. Have things gotten any better since you wrote it?”

According to Christie, that’s when Kelly went ballistic! She responded…

“You are trying to f–king turn this around and get shit on my family, aren’t you?”

Uh…yikes.  Poor Kelly…maybe it’s better to say nothing at all to reporters during hard times like these?

Kelly Osbourne Channeling Her Dad!

Kelly Osbourne is going retro…and keeping her look in the family!

The star of Fashion Police is looking a lot like her dad these days, and that’s meant to be a compliment! Kel’s got rocker dad  Ozzy Osbourne‘s look with the rounded glasses, crosses, all black and the like.  She’s modified the style, however with a bold, light purple hair color, along with a chic, black tailored jacket to make the overall ensemble feel more up to date and feminine.

I dig it! Do you?

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Wine Sells Out In 5 Hours!

Well, are you surprised?!

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt‘s new venture looks oddly, but also disappointingly, successful! The power couple’s Miraval Rosé 2012 wine completely sold out all 6,000 bottles in five hours on Thursday, the first day it was available online. “The sale started at 9 a.m., and all the bottles were sold out by 2 p.m.,” Vitabella, the public relations firm representing the Jolie-Pitt’s vineyard, said in a statement.

Miraval Rosé 2012 was available as a six-bottle case for $139. Not to bad, right?

Later this month the wine will go back on sale, Vitabella promises!  This time, however, it will only be available for wholesalers and restaurants. It’s unclear as of now if the rosé will once again be available for the general public, but given the great demand for it, the Hollywood stars and their business partner, winemaker Marc Perrin, it seems crazy that they’ll hold out on their adoring fans for too long.

Pitt and Jolie’s Château Miraval plans introduce a white wine later this summer and a few different reds throughout 2014. Why not, right? Château Miraval, the 35-bedroom estate and adjoining vineyard which the couple purchased for $60 million last year after leasing it since 2008, spans 1,200 acres … and has enough grapes to make 150,000 bottles of wine.

uh, I’ll have a glass, Brad and Ang!
