MTV VMAs: Busta Rhymes says Adam Levine is right [Video]

August 28, 2011 |  6:54 pm

Earlier this week, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine made headlines when he declared that the MTV Video Music Awards were the one day a year that the network "pretends to still care about music."

On the black carpet at the awards ceremony Sunday evening, rapper Busta Rhymes said he agreed with Levine's sentiment.

"I think it is true, unfortunately," said the performer, who guessed he has been to 12 Video Music Awards. "It ain't what they used to be as far as supporting the music, you know what I'm sayin'? But at the end of the day, you still gotta come out and make sure that you are being acknowledged properly ... So I salute Adam Levine from Maroon 5 for shedding a light on that. It's real spit."
