Adam Levine
Celebrities usually get plenty of attention, but sometimes they don't get enough credit. Maybe you know them for one thing, but you don't know the other three things they do, too. Maybe you don't know them that well, because they've not gotten as much press as they should. There are a lot of good people who are underrated, and that doesn't just mean that they haven't been discovered yet.

We've compiled this list of twelve celebrities who've never gotten enough credit over their whole careers - they're not just underrated now, but they've pretty much always deserved a bit more respect. In n...

'The Voice' By The Numbers: Were Season 7 Auditions Easier?
Last night's episode of The Voice was a clip show, but that's not stopping us from offering a little insight. You see, we sort of felt things were getting a little easier this season, so we decided to do the math and find out. We compared statistics from season seven's blind auditions to those from a year ago - season five - and to those from the first season to set a Top 48, season two, way back in 2012. So is it easier to get on The Voice now than it was before? Which coach is the toughest to win over? Here's what we uncovered.

A note before we begin: obviously, we're comparing statistic...

Hunt you down eat you alive...Maybe you think that you can hide/ I can smell your scent ...

Maroon 5 released a hot new video for their latest single, "Animals," on Tuesday, and the new promo features lead singer Adam Levine and his real-life wife Behati Prinsloo taking their bedroom chemistry to the small screen.

While Prinsloo looks her usual gorgeous, unattainable self, Levine plays the role of a stalker who becomes obsessed with her when she shows up at the butcher's shop where he works (and sadly attempts to cut ribs with a cleaver while wearing a hair net).

Becoming smitten by her beauty, the singer is seen in his apartment with black-and-white photos of her hanging everyw...

Maroon 5 'V' (Deluxe Edition) Review: Two Sides To One Successful Record

September 2nd, 2014 12:05pm EDT
V
As mentioned in our review of Maroon 5's Overexposed, this is a band that's constantly evolving. None of their records sounds quite like any of the others; whether or not that's a good thing depends on which incarnation you prefer. Fifth album V does its part to continue the group's transition into slickly produced pop-rock that began with Overexposed, yet what makes the record worth a listen are the few tracks where it breaks from effects and goes back to the band's true musicianship.

If you've heard the first three singles - "Maps," "It Was Always You" and "Animals" - you've got a good s...

Australian model Miranda Kerr has very visible dimples on her cheeks. Whenever she smiles, her dimples appear. She is most known for her work as a Victoria's Secret Angel and her (now ended) marriage to actor Orlando Bloom.

Kerr has her own skincare line, Kora Organics. She once told Cosmpolitan magazine that she uses coconut oil for her beautiful skin, shiny hair and slim body.
