Randy Jackson Says Adam Levine 'Misunderstood' Criticism Of 'The Voice': [ send to a friend ]
'American Idol's Randy Jackson's says he didn't mean to insult 'The Voice' with his comments.
This after Adam Levine said Jackson was 'irresponsible' for calling the competition a "second-chance place" for artists that don't make it elsewhere.
"Shame on Randy Jackson for saying that, because he out of anybody should know that if you're in this business you need second, third, fourth and fifth chances," said Levine.
"So we love and embrace having that be a part of the show. You know, god bless Randy. He was a working musician for a long time and had a lot of success and then the show Idol kind of blew him out of the water. And he is a household name now. It was an irresponsible thing to say that."
But on Thursday Jackson claimed he didn't mean it as a negative.
"I've got mad love for Adam but their show is a different show than what we do," Jackson said on Ryan Seacrest's radio show.
"We go out and we search for the next would-be superstar. We're looking for the person that no one knows about. Respectfully, Adam Levine, we can all exist together and do it big. Adam, I think you misunderstood me, dawg."
