Congrats, you made it through Monday. Wind down with Last Lap: The New York Post is convinced that Jay Z and Beyoncé are headed for a divorce, La Roux says f-ck Kanye West, Jonah Hill officiated Adam Levine‘s wedding and more.
Wake up to Sunday’s First Dibs: Beyoncé teases us with an Instagram post, Adam Levine is officially off the market, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian hire a really expensive body double for baby North and more.
Everyone knows who Adam Levine is, but did you know that there’s a fair chance that Adam Levine knows who everyone else is? From Jonah Hill to Tim Gunn, Shania Twain to Iranian dictator Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, everyone is tied to the sexy singer in some bizarre way. So, in honor of his 35th Birthday, we want to celebrate how we’re all “Maroon 5 Degrees” away from Adam Levine.
The end of the calendar year brings colder weather, bigger meals, and the opportunity to gawk at attractive male celebrities all in the name of journalism. Adam Levine of Maroon 5 is People‘s Sexiest Man Alive for 2013. It’s an honor bestowed upon only the most gorgeous of Hollywood royalty, and a no-brainer for any fan of The Voice or Mick Jagger‘s dance moves.
Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine surprised fans this week with the announcement of his engagement to supermodel Behati Prinsloo. The couple split up in March, 2013 after a year of dating, and no one had any idea they were back together, much less ready to walk down the aisle. (In fact, the singer was spotted with model Nina Agdal just a few weeks ago).
He wasn’t pulling double duty like Bruno Mars did back in October–or like Justin Bieber will do in just two week’s time–but there was still plenty of opportunity for Adam Levine to show off what his day job is like during his first Saturday Night Live hosting gig. He’s been stretching his acting muscles in recent months, but Levine stuck to his musical roots just enough to bust out a catchy hook and taking part in the formation of a brand-new beef, the latter taking place when Pat Monahan of Train (Taran Killam) steps to his own Maroon 5. Employing one of our necessary rules for successful hosting, Levine was not above mocking his own group, and the bands squared off in a battle of harmless guitar riffs and lady-killing stares while the likes of Jason Mraz (Jason Sudeikis) and John Mayer (Bill Hader) looked on.
But the night was not complete without the return of the digital short and the Lonely Island, whom we miss now more than ever. Levine joined Andy Samberg (welcome back!), Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer to hold court along the famous Grease raceway, reminding us that yes, we only live once, and we probably shouldn’t take that for granted with stupid stunts that will make us momentarily Internet-famous.
