The Frisky staff is firmly divided into two camps: those who think Baja hoodies are awesome and cool and cute (me) and those who think they are a disgusting abomination (everyone else). But even I cannot abide by the Baja-esque hoodie Adam Levine wore on “The Today Show” yesterday morning. At first I was tickled to see such a huge star coming out in support of the drug rug, but upon closer inspection, I realized that Adam’s hoodie is actually knit and by the designer Gant. It costs $225 and is seemingly sold out online! SO NOT COOL. Even I am turned off. [Photo: INF Daily]
I think we’ve established that Adam Levine is hot and talented and has a reasonably good sense of humor. So this begs the question: why are his supermodel girlfriends always canning him? I think he might have inadvertently answered our question. When asked to reveal what he likes to do on a first date, he said:
“I always like to dress up in a tuxedo and tell the girl to dress real fancy. I like to pick her up and go to McDonald’s in a tuxedo…. It’s a good spontaneous, romantic thing you can do that’s also cost-effective. What if you don’t like the person? It’s only the first date … Her world will be so rocked.” Keep reading »
Say what you will about him, but Adam Levine has always given me a crippling case of the skeeves. I know I am in the minority because even my mom thinks he’s sexy, and her idea of a sex symbol is, like, Gregory Peck. Also, he totally serial-dates Victoria’s Secret models with a rapidity rivaled only by Leonardo DiCaprio, so what in the world is wrong with me that every time I land on “The Voice” while channel-surfing, or hear him crooning “Payphone” on the radio, my visceral reaction is to reach for the hand sanitizer?
Anyway, here’s what’s weird: the Maroon 5 frontman is breaking into the fragrance biz for the first time, and it seems to me like Adam is feeling out a new frontier, not just “another bullshit celebrity fragrance.” In fact, he told WWD that he “wanted to do something understated and elegant,” like Tom Ford would do. Adam Levine dropped Tom Ford’s name in reference to his own eponymous line of fragrances. Color me attentive, because that takes balls. The “masterbrand,” which includes both men’s and women’s fragrances, launches at Macy’s this month, and for what it’s worth, the bottles look like microphones. Will you be taking a whiff of Adam’s “woody floral” women’s scent any time soon? [Us Magazine]
Adam Levine shows off his abs and multiple tattoos while delivering his opening monologue on “Saturday Night Live” on Saturday (January 26) in New York City.
The 33-year-old Maroon 5 front man was joined by Andy Samberg, Cameron Diaz and Jerry Seinfeld who all claimed they wanted to coach him on his hosting — an obvious spoof on “The Voice.” Check out Adam‘s shirtless opening monologue here!
Did you watch all of the election coverage last night? We did, and we weren’t the only ones. Celebs were all fired up on Twitter last night as they waited for the election returns come in. We gathered up some of the best, funniest Twitter responses — including RuPaul‘s amazing “Drag Race” comments (which have been retweeted more than 26,000 times), above — after the jump!

Ryan Murphy is no fool. The “American Horror Story” creator knows he has to release a steady stream of teasers to keep interest piqued … which is really annoying for fans like me who want trailers with some substance. Finally we’ve got something to work with: here’s the new trailer for “American Horror Story”‘s season two — which is set in an East Coast mental institution run by priests and nuns — and it promises to be all kinds of fucked up in whole new ways. We’ve got electroshock therapy, sex addicts, and sadism. Oh, and we’ll finally see if Adam Levine knows how to act. (I though I don’t know if you can call love scenes with Jenna Dewan Tatum “acting.”) The show returns on FX on October 17. [AV Club]
Casting news can get so tedious, especially when you couldn’t give a crap about the latest “Breaking Hunger Potter Twilight Games” franchise. But a casting update I can get behind is season two of “American Horror Story,” which will be set in an all-new setting and feature an almost all-new cast. Creator Ryan Murphy dished to The Hollywood Reporter that season two will be “fun, sexy and baroque” and set on an East Coast mental institution for the criminally insane. So who can we expect to see onscreen? Keep reading »
“I’ve always felt a little misrepresented in the world. I felt like people only knew me as a singer who dated pretty girls. A little bit of a bimbo. Maybe I was kind of a bimbo … I was the dude that was naked all the time with girls, and that’s fine, no problem with that. … There are two kinds of men. There are men who are fucking misogynist pigs, and then there are men who really love women, who think they’re the most amazing people in the world. And that’s me. Maybe the reason I was promiscuous, and wanted to sleep with a lot of them, is that I love them so much.”
– I’m glad to hear that Adam Levine from Maroon 5 is not a “fucking misogynist pig.” I’m also glad to hear that loving the opposite sex is a socially legit reason for promiscuity. Next time some commenters give The Frisky bloggers grief for slutting it up, I’m just going to tell them, “You don’t understand. We want to sleep with a lot of men because we love them so much!”
(P.S. A little birdie in our office who knows Adam says he’s not a bimbo at all, but “savvy, talented and hardworking.” So there you go.) [Details]
Jennifer Love Hewitt just learned a valuable lesson: Don’t reveal your private crushes in public!
“The moment when you make a comment about something or someone and the world makes you feel like a total fool. #keepcrushesquiet,” the star of ”The Client List” tweeted today. The “someone” in question: Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine. Read more…
