The Cricket’s Daily 3: No, Adam Levine doesn’t hate America

Here’s what’s being talked about this weekend in pop culture:

• Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine mumbled "I hate this country" after its citizens voted members of his team off "The Voice" the other night. You know what happened next: Levine had to make a statement apologizing to anyone who was offended, and reiterating that "I obviously love my country very much," because nobody can take anything in context anymore.
