Adam Levine
Maroon 5 front man and The Voice coach Adam Levine turns 33 today. Naturally, I couldn't let that happen without saying something.

There's no doubt that Levine is a professional success. With Maroon 5, he's got a huge following around the world, three Grammy Awards, and an American Music Award, plus countless nominations. He made history last year as the first artist to crack the Billboard charts both as a group (with "Moves Like Jagger") and as a solo artist (guesting on the Gym Class Heroes hit "Stereo Hearts"). He's a coach on the show that broke American Idol's ratings dominance and,...

The Voice
Here's the latest on and around NBC's The Voice: Dia Frampton drops by, reviews of Javier Colon and Beverly McClellan's new albums, and the AMAs!

I start this week catching up with season 1 runner-up and Team Blake finalist Dia Frampton, whose new album Red will hit stores two weeks from today, on December 6. Dia was kind enough to chat with me about The Voice and how her life has been post-show.

How much did things change for her after The Voice? "A lot," she confided, adding that she started "right after [the finale], literally the next day, to write songs and record, because I was ho...

Here's the latest on and around NBC's The Voice: Dia Frampton's new single arrives, and we're one week away from Beverly McClellan, Casey Weston, and Javier Colon's new albums!

That's right, right now you can head to iTunes and purchase Dia's new single, "The Broken Ones." It's the first cut off her album Red, which arrives on December 6. It is a fantastic listen - it's amazing to see how far Dia has come since that first blind audition, isn't it? Not just incredible talent, but sincerity and poise...she's going to go a whole lot farther!

Music Talk: The Week In Tunes

November 8th, 2011 1:00pm EST
Marianas Trench
Last week was a busy one in Southern California music. I spotted Marianas Trench, Simple Plan, Brian Culbertson and Maroon 5.

Wednesday night, Canadian pop-punk band Marianas Trench arrived at San Diego's House of Blues. (You might remember them from my recent interview with bassist Mike Ayley.)

It was the first United States tour for the band, who seemed to be having a fantastic time on stage. If I hadn't known it was their first American tour I would never have guessed. They carried themselves very well, and despite only playing an opening set, left a great impression.

Here's lead sing...

Brittany's 'The Voice' Blog: Catching Up With...Jeff Jenkins

October 18th, 2011 11:15am EDT
The Voice
Here's the latest on and around NBC's The Voice: I shine the spotlight on Jeff Jenkins, the singer who brought the heart to Team Adam.

All the artists from season one were great people, but Jeff in particular was somebody you couldn't help but love. He was always so warm and approachable, with a positive attitude in any circumstance, and yet that mischievious side that threw host Carson Daly off at least once (you know the moment). He personified the phrase "happy to be here," because he was - and that was something I felt when I was around him.

Jeff was also possessed of some seriously...

October 6th, 2011 8:36am EDT
Ailing Adele has been given something to smile about a day after announcing the cancellation of her upcoming North American tour - she's back at the top of the U.S. pop charts.

The Brit's "Someone Like You" has returned to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 countdown, ending Maroon 5's run at the top with "Moves Like Jagger," which falls to two.

Foster the People's "Pumped Up Kicks," Gym Class Heroes' "Stereo Hearts" and LMFAO's former number one "Party Rock Anthem" round out the new top five, while Rihanna makes chart history at nine with her 20th top 10 hit.

Rapper Travie McCoy has offered a backhanded compliment to ex-girlfriend Katy Perry for addressing their break-up in a scathing new record, insisting the star "finally has a song with some substance."

The Gym Class Heroes star split from the singer last April - eight months before she became engaged to funnyman Russell Brand.

She appeared to address the break-up in a new song entitled "Circle the Drain" from her latest album, "Teenage Dream."

Neither Perry or McCoy has directly addressed the song's none-too-subtle content, which features Perry singing lyrics: "You fall asleep during fore...

Pop star Katy Perry will never have a night of passion with a stranger because she finds casual sex "disgusting."

The "I Kissed A Girl" hitmaker, who is currently dating Gym Class Heroes frontman Travis McCoy, loves to flirt but hates the idea of getting intimate with guys she barely knows.

She says, "For me, it's not a past time, going out and meeting people and trying to hook up with people. That actually makes me feel disgusting. From a really early age, I was really sensitive to that. Getting your flirt on is the best thing in the world, but when it comes to sharing bodily flu...

The couple split at Christmas after romancing for much of last year, and it wasn't all amicable - as McCoy proved with a post on his website, in which he revealed the pair had been arguing for weeks.
