Adam Levine And Wife Behati Prinsloo Get Covered In Fake Blood For Maroon 5's 'Animals' Video

September 30th, 2014 7:31pm EDT
Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine in Maroon 5's Animals Video
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...

Christian Rapper Lecrae Takes ‘Anomaly’ To The Top Of Billboard 200

September 18th, 2014 8:31am EDT
Lecrae Anomaly
It’s rare that the Christian rapper debuts atop the Billboard 200. How rare – well it never happens – like “never ever.” Anyways, Lecrae made it happen this week as Anomaly outperformed early prognostications and sold 88,000 copies. Lecrae was able to hold off a strong second week from Maroon 5’s V (80,000 copies, #2) as well as what was thought to be a tight race with Jhené Aiko (Souled Out sold 70,000 copies, good for #3).

While Lecrae’s debut is celebratory, it is also another week where no albums moved 100,000 copies. Throw in the fact that besides Lecrae and Jhené Aiko, the top ...

'Maroon 5' Earns Second #1 Album With ‘V’: This Week In Music

September 11th, 2014 8:32am EDT
'Maroon 5' Earns Second #1 Album With ‘V’: This Week In Music
Expectedly, rock/pop band Maroon 5 debut atop the Billboard 200 with their fifth studio album, V. Until V arrived, it had been seven years since Maroon 5 first reached the penthouse of the Billboard Album Charts, when It Won’t Be Soon Before Long sold a robust 429,000 copies. V doesn’t open nearly as hot, but does sell a respectable 164,000 copies. Those numbers are in line with other first-week sales in 2014, including Ariana Grande’s My Everything (#1, 169,000) Sam Smith’s In the Lonely Hour (#2, 166,000).

Thankfully, Maroon 5 wouldn’t be the only big name dropping respectable number...

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...

Once upon a time, music videos were played frequently on television. It’s hard to believe in 2014, but once there was a spot for those visual pieces accompanying the audio.

Maroon 5's 'Maps' Shows That There Is No Hope Left For The Band

June 21st, 2014 2:00pm EDT
Maroon 5
A long time ago, a band emerged from sunny Los Angeles, California with one of the best pop debut records in recent memory. That record was called "Songs About Jane" and it featured a plethora of radio hits that were both instanly memorable and also instantly replayable.

That band's name is Maroon 5, and "Songs About Jane" skyrocketed them and their charismatic leader Adam Levine to instant stardom. Their music, however, seemed to travel in the exact opposite direction of their fame, and every attempt to follow "Songs About Jane" has ended with less than superb results.

Maroon 5 Keeps Psy From Hitting Number One On The Pop Charts

South Korean pop sensation Psy still can't beat Maroon 5 to number one on the pop charts. Psy has been stuck in the number two spot for four weeks.

The "Gangnam Style" star promished he'll perform his hit song topless "in a place where everyone can watch" if it hits the top of the charts, but it appears he'll be keeping his shirt on for good because Maroon 5 notched up a fifth week at number one on Wednesday with "One More Night."

Maroon 5's "Payphone" stays put at number two on the Hot 100 for a sixth successive week.

No Doubt land the countdown's highest debut at 34 with their comeback single "Settle Down."

Canadian police are currently investigating after a hacker illegally accessed Jepsen's computer and stole "electronic property" believed to be personal pictures.

Album Review: Maroon 5, 'Overexposed'

June 26th, 2012 9:00am EDT
Maroon 5
One has to admire the sharp wit that's evident in Maroon 5 naming their new album Overexposed. Even better, though, is that their fourth studio album reminds us of what makes them so good: reinventing themselves over and over again without a decline in quality.

If you must, categorize them as a pop-rock band, but the Los Angeles rockers have employed so many different sounds over the course of four studio albums - and successfully so - that to classify them feels like a disservice. Overexposed is another diverse outing, with the reggae-infused lead track "One More Night" sounding differe...

Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine has vowed never to quit and go solo - because he can't imagine his idol Bono releasing an album without U2.

The Moves Like Jagger singer accepts his band may split one day - but he'd rather form another group than go solo.

He says, "I'll never be a solo artist... Being in a band is much more fun."

And he tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, "Look at a band like U2 that has been around forever - I'm not sure how people would react to a record called Bono. I don't want to ever be that person.

Big Time Rush's James Maslow Talks Big Summer Plans

James Maslow
I'll admit it: when I hear the phrase "boy band," I'm one of those people who cringes. But I recently chatted with Big Time Rush member James Maslow, and he changed my mind a little bit.

BTR (consisting of Maslow, Kendall Schmidt, Carlos Pena, Jr. and Logan Henderson) is a boy band that was born out of the Nickelodeon TV series of the same name. In concept, their origin is reminiscent of The Monkees. Since 2009, the foursome have been acting in the half-hour musical/comedy series as well as releasing two albums. They'll be touring across the country this summer.

'The Voice' Performance Show: Who Was Instantly Eliminated?

April 17th, 2012 8:00am EDT

The producers of NBC's The Voice aren't making it easy: on Monday's performance show, an "instant elimination" forced two coaches to chop two artists before America's vote.

Neither the singers nor the coaches were fans of the surprise axe. Blake Shelton remarked that if he knew who was responsible for the idea, he'd kick them - and Team Blake's Erin Willett was quick to concur.

"I'm still unhappy with it. I think that's the worst thing we've done," said Team Christina's Chris Mann after the show.

Perhaps the only one to see any merit in the idea was Adam Levine, who remarked that it at...

It was decision time again on NBC's The Voice, this time for Team Adam and Team Cee Lo. Who did America save and who sung their last song Tuesday night?

For Team Adam, the bottom three were a trio of lovely ladies: Kim Yarbrough, Katrina Parker and Karla Davis. It was Katrina's heartbreaking rendition of No Doubt's "Don't Speak" that won her Adam's one reprieve.

On Team Cee Lo, facing elimination were Tony Vincent, Cheesa, and Erin Martin. Cheesa delivered a powerful version of Eric Carmen's "All By Myself" that earned her a second chance, despite Cee Lo first saying that his head was l...

It was another entertaining night on The Voice on Monday, but perhaps even moreso because again, putting Team Cee Lo against...well, any of the other three teams really shows how distinct Cee Lo's ideas are.

The results came after a new part of the show this season: a "sudden sing" where the bottom three got a chance to perform for their coach's save (as opposed to last season, where a coach selected one based on their previous live performance).
