Maroon 5 frontman, Adam Levine has finally addressed the controversy surrounding the group's decision to headline the Super Bowl's halftime show.

Speaking with Entertainment Tonight‘s Kevin Frazier, Levine claims that the decision to perform was not an easy one.

“No one thought about it more than I did,” he said. 

“No one put more thought and love into this than I did. I spoke to many people, most importantly though, I silenced all the noise and listened to myself, and made my decision about how I felt.”

But then he appeared to make peace with his decision.

“I will never sit here and deny that. I think that to have not done that would have been deeply irresponsible. I am not in the right profession if I can’t handle a bit of controversy. It is what it is. We would like to move on from it and speak through the music."

Also delivering praise to Travis Scott who will be headlining alongside the group.

“Travis Scott, he’s been incredible. He is ‘it’ right now. This is the show that’s going to have the biggest hip hop presence there’s ever been on this show.”

Super Bowl LIII will air Sunday, Feb. 3 at 6:30 pm EST on CBS from the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
