    Adam Levine of Maroon 5 says he's not a fan of singing competitions.

    "The Voice" doesn't return to television until after the Super Bowl next year, but Adam Levine is creating a stir already by admitting in a new interview he's "not a fan" of singing competitions.

    "I'm not a fan of singing competitions. I never have been," the judge told the Huffington Post.

    Adam was quick, however, to defend his own reality show.

    "There was something that rang true with 'The Voice,'" he continued. "It's just a very sincere, honest show where we were allowed to speak our minds and be ourselves and help people along - in a real way."

    While it helps people "in a real way," Adam suggested some of the tension between him and fellow judges – like Christina Aguilera, is artificial.

    "Any tension that we produced was all fabricated," he said. "We all liked each other. The media just played it up. Christina [Aguilera] kicks a**. She's super talented."

    As previously reported on, "The Voice" will premiere its second season after the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 5.
