Maroon 5 facts – April/May 2011 – III

Written by Marghe&Sere

Welcome back!

Our monthly posts get updated with what we hope will be an interesting recap of everything that has happened in Maroon 5 world in the past 30 days.

We are glad to say that we have watched the two episodes of The Voice Blind Auditions (the power of Megashare and our very tech savvy friends were helpful there… ps: Zaira, you may hate the show and being resolute in not watching it, but we thank you for having allowed us to download the episodes through your devices… and thank you Federico, too, for helping us saving the codecs)) and we have liked every bit of every show so far.

You will get some good link later with the episodes in full so we hope you will be also able to watch even though you may not be Americans (just like the rest of us, too).

Oh, wait… we are kind so we put the links to the episodes up here straight away.

This is The Voice Episode 1, Blind Audition, April 26th:

Click over and follow to the FULL video from the link

And this is the just broadcasted The Voice Episode 2, still Blind Auditions, that was broadcasted overnight in the US (May 3rd):

We are sure you will enjoy both episodes just like we did (you have to click on the images of the two videos and you will be directed at the pages where you can see the whole thing).

Let’s get into recap now, back from where we stopped last time.

We are sorry, but we couldn’t find any working clip out of the episode of April 8th, 2011 of the Dutch version of The X Factor, where Adam Levine did mentor some of the contestants.

If you are mastering their language, try with their site (we gave up soon):

We were guessing in last post that since his girlfriend was in Turks and Caicos for am ad campaign, just days before Maroon 5 would be moving to Barbados for their professional duties, Anne and Adam would have remet in the Caribbean Seas.

It did not happen.

While his half was working under the Sun, in fact, Adam and his creek of people went down to Las Vegas (8-9th April he was SO there), and for the majority of that time, Adam did not even tweet…

By the time Maroon 5 moved to Barbados, instead, Anne went back to New York, to spend time with her Pomeranian Chovy and her mum.

One person was extremely jealous of Adam as he was tweeting that in Barbados everybody “sounded like Rihanna“… and that was RIHANNA, tweeting him back that she would have so much traded places and locations with him, and be back at (her) home.

Adam Levine in Barbados April 2011

Even though weather was far from perfect in Barbados, we are sure the location and the stay were breathtaking (supervilla, check!) and in fact Adam tweeted his love for the island along the praise serenaded by the whole band all over their stop there.

Too bad the posh location, and the way he enjoyed smelling roses on the patio of the villa seemingly wasn’t enough for Adam to stop being a brat?

The concert sponsored by the Breakfast In Barbados production, although under menacing weather was great, and really cool to watch.

Maroon 5 Breakfast In Barbados April 2011

Always a pleasure to enjoy them on a stage…

This is a clip from Barbados:

Our favorite thing was this interview Adam and Jesse did while in Barbados, anyway:

It seems that one of the most enthused at the gig was actress Minnie Driver, who grooved at the music and then also enjoyed her chance to meet Adam (and sure at least she pushed HARD to obtain one!).

The band didn’t stay too long in the Caribbean, no matter chasing fans though, because they had a scheduled flight to New York for the already-planned-from-a-long-time TruTV party launch.

But the day before that, while the rest of the band checked PJ Morton gig in New York, Adam and Annewho is on the DVD cover for the current swimsuit edition of Sports Illustrated –  actually reunited and went for a dinner out, instead (the romantic lovebirds…).

They had to capitalize time together, because hours after the TruTV launch party (that they went together at, of course, too) Maroon 5 had to fly back and touring towards European scenery.

But before they truly rocked out that Turner Corp. event. Massively.

If you wanna see more pictures from the event, please CLICK HERE, thank you.

Adam after the party went in to watch the Lakers.

It has been painful for the rabid fan he is to have to worry about his adored hometown’s sporty pride from far away, and all his tweets during games time are proving how big of a fan of the team he is.

And as they announced, during the time of the tour Adam will update us with a daily Video.

Each day.

Talking about videos, and/of Adam, we found this oldie from a training lesson of Yoga at Adam‘s place:

We know.

We drool as well.

Maroon 5 and PJ Morton left Usa to reach Istanbul, and Anne as well flew to an exotic location…for unprecised reasons (hopefully she rested?).

Adam flew very comfortably to Europe, even though Maroon 5 too had to be forced throughout delays (thing that didn’t let James sleep, so he did as soon as he touched Turkish soil):

But although they have not really be clear about that, we can tell you Adam and Anne reunited again soon after his gig in Turkey and her further stop in Anguilla, and they reunited in London.

Anyway, the first “Adam Levine Video Of the Day” was the one from the airport, waiting to sail off to Istanbul:

As Maroon 5 moved to Europe, some “background” articles started to arise from various international sources… as this one from Time Out Dubai:

Or as this other one again from Dubai (another incoming destination) focusing on Adam’s links (past and present):

We liked this excerpt because it was especially correct over that FAKE REPORT that Russian and then british Gossip papers built up and got spread, the one that claimed that Adam said of Maria Sharapova that she was a “dead frog” in bed.

ADAM NEVER SAID IT.

Adam and Maria were a great looking couple by the way, and this is something to remind you how he seems to have always had a spot for Russian beauties in himself:

Adam Levine and Maria Sharapova in 2005. HE NEVER SAID SHE WAS A FROG.

Too bad so many keep thinking he did.

While we are on the historical topic, take a look at this old clip from Room Raiders:

Back to Istanbul now, and to our reports.

This was the video of Adam about the show soundcheck:

The show blew minds collectively, from what we checked out of.

The evening of the post-show party was funny, and Adam tried up PJ Morton’s accessories:

While Maroon 5 enjoyed as a band the gap in between shows (the subsequent one in Dubai was about to take stage only after a few days, and Jesse, James and PJ tweeted images of the beauties of Bosforo to make fans assured they were enjoying their further stay in Turkey, which included music from the local people) the immediate morning after Adam Levine tweeted from the Istanbul airport, from where he quickly departed – not without being annoyed by some noisy baby on the plane – to reach…

London.

Adam in London. Chatting with... Anne

He did not reveal why he moved there, other than allegedly have something funny to point out about London, its style, its vocabulary traps, and the lack of a good motorcycle surround (Los Angeles is stuck into Levine’s mind everyday).

But we do know London is dear to his heart especially after he and Anne stayed there back last Fall (those were the days of the Cosmopolitan UK photo shot, and we all know those hands covering Adam’s man parts are Anne’s, thing that he confirmed in interviews too).

Although she hasn’t tweeted about being there, we got evidences Adam and Anne met in London, in that tiny free space of time they both apparently carved for themselves into their schedules.

It’s hard for Adam to stay away from his hometown, or his Country; it has to be even more so when in his place there is the woman he loves from almost a year and a half.

A very lucky woman; but he is a lucky man as well, if she takes planes whenever it’s even remotely possible to to spend with him often only a grasp of hours.

And no matter if they tried for the down-low, someone still has captured them, enough for others to decode what moved Adam away from his band mates enjoying the beauties of Turkey.

He was captured by a beauty from Russia.

He kept posting videos from London.

Some belonging to Istanbul:

And some not:

Adam was definitely in a great mood while in London (another hint at Anne’s being at his side) because out of his friend Andy Milonakis (a comedian) request for a 300.000$ car to borrow so to be hip enough for a ride around Los Angeles, Adam AGREED in landing him  his beloved Aston Martin.

That behind Milonakis is Adam Levine's beloved Aston Martin

All his fans know he had to be really confident and friendly and in a super-good mood to agree over that

To be far away for two months from Los Angeles implies many good things, like visiting the world in full, but also some down points: beside the Lakers and their playoff games, for instance, Adam has to give up to one of his idols’ long touring residence in the town.

And he can’t easily get over that:

But Adam will be better up and used to tour, as these are the dates that still has to face:

Before Maroon 5 completed their schedule that way, Adam shared this video, and we have to post it because the co-star there is his amazing Golden Retriever, the amazing “Frankie Girl” Adam has tatted over his back, the lady dog that we all love and that is also the one in Goodnight Goodnight video.

Look the two cuties:

By those days The Voice had yet to make its – greatly successful – debut on screens, but words were circulating on how two of the judges/coaches immediately had bonded in a very open, really funny “bromance“.

Adam Levine and Blake Shelton lately proved their chemistry out under everyone’s eyes (they are so similar, which is maybe unexpected but so entertaining, both over the show and if you follow them both on Twitter), and there were anticipations such as this (that is definitely Adam’s calligraphic mark, we all know how to decode it):

We can just guess how graphic Blake was later on Adam’s dressing room sign.

Back on tour memories now:

And more from the Dubai gig now:

We think it’s a great idea to share all these little videos.

Because you get to feel Maroon 5 tour vibe from an unfiltered and genuine point of view.

Some videos are chaos, but cute:

Some other insight in their touring life instead just becomes another way for Adam to show the world his irresistible tendency at being a mess.

A funny, overloaded, reckless mess:

Keepin up with Adam’s comedic antics is a fun trip:

After Dubai Maroon 5 moved east, and reached up to Singapore:

Read also this interview with both Adam and Train singer Pat Monhahan about Maroon 5 and Train joint summer tour:

While tour life progresses, some have wondered the state of Adam Levine and Anne V‘s relationship (Anne was those days in Los Angeles shooting a denim campaign with Twilight’s Kellan Lutz, if you wonder…).

They are still very much on, and Adam sometimes sneaks at it, like he did on April 26th, answering a tweet:

Everybody hoping for a breakup while he’s on tour are gonna be let down; we find pleasant the way their friends also are always referring to them as a couple, because one of the best way for any relationship to be safe is to have the support of your closest people around.

And to deny Anne’s beauty or charm or qualities would be pretty pointless, wouldn’t you agree (we still envy her like… GREEN, but she’s a good girl for Adam, we get it)?

This time, (and we are longtime fans of the band, so we have seen all the times when touring jeopardized Adam’s relationships) it really seems he wants the story to keep shining, and putting his best efforts into this for real.

Maturity in a 32 years old?

Probably.

And then Anne is always so very supportive of her man; she just looks like a great girlfriend and it’s hard to question it.

Take a look at Adam Levine turning…a tree for YRB Magazine Cover story:

Adam is Green inside, but we think nowhere as Green as Jesse…

And then it came THE VOICE, as the band was touring still.

Time Zones made it possible for Adam to watch over some device, and hear the feedback from his girlfriend (glued on screen) and friends.

You have seen the episode full (at the start of this post, go up!) so here we will post just some article.

The show was a complete success: we love Adam there, his personality is awesome and so true; we really like Cee-Lo, and Blake Shelton is  fantastic (and not only because of his openly expressed bromance with Adam).

We find Christina Aguilera full of herself and annoying, a Diva in the worst sense… but the girl has the most impressive vocal pipes and that saves her from our dislike.

We never liked American Idol (which never gained attention in Italy); we quite like XFactor instead.

But what makes The Voice stand out (beside our love for Adam) is the real competency of the coaches, their personalities, the way the singers are really good.

We agree with this:

Despite some dumb critics (This one, who clearly doesn’t have a clue, or Billboard, which wrote their review even before the show actually aired, and is now trying to step back from their not-on-point bias), the show has been a HUGE SUCCESS both for the NBC and the people involved.

We clearly think it’s gonna be a great idea.

Adam’s “salesman” skills paid him off in the end (his father must be so proud), and he’s probably very happy right now to have followed his instinct and accepted the gig, even though initially his dislike for reality tv almost held him back.

But guys were still touring; from Singapore, to INDONESIA (so loved by Adam, and he’s actually now wearing constantly a bracelet gifted by a fan there), Maroon 5 moved to Malaysia.

James asked innocently on twitter advices for meals… and Adam answered in his most typical way.

Please, take some other funny video:

And forgive Adam’s mispellings:

As they were ready to move to Australia, from their Asian stint, and with some days off and a planned apperance at the Logies Awards (fun coming from there too, as somebody decided to not follow the dressing code…), Adam posted some more video and then vented a bit as he always does when he has spare time.

Anne by then had flew from New York to her “second home”, Los Angeles, and taking residence in the West Coast made probably easier for her and Adam to Skype at decently parted hours.

Not that Adam sleeps much anyway anyhow, and if you know he has ADHD, that shouldn’t come as a surprise (nor it should the fact he is a rebellious brat):

More videos:

More videos clicking also HERE thank you.

These are from the Logies Awards instead:

With the red carpet piece where you see Adam “dressed like a hobo” (in his own words):

The Australian time had included also the chance for the guys to watch the Second THE VOICE Episode (also that one is up at the start of our post today), while the contestants from the first one already were having their run of interviews (particularly the three picked by Adam in that first show, as they are we think the best of the whole 32-people lot actually).

Listen to Rebecca Loebe, and then enjoy her great rendition of Nirvana from the show:

In this interview with The Voice Correspondant you can also read about how Blake and Adam “are brothers from different mothers”, and probably like us freak a bit the way Allison was quoted naming “all four coaches are married or ENGAGED”.

Well, Cee-Lo doesn’t act such as a taken person, but he’s histrionic so that could be just charm-acting up; we know Blake is just ready to marry Miranda Lambert… Christina has that useless rented piece aside her, and hopefully she isn’t really that drunk or dumb right now to have offered him an engagement… but is there something Anne and Adam haven’t yet told the world about?

Certainly she was again very charming and supportive, watching Episode two from “that” Hollywood Hills pad along all of his friends, and tweeting him her love:

While Anne was sharing love back and forth from LA to Melbourne (she is really rocking red, that blouse fits her really greatly!), other famous friends were taking chances for planning some meeting with Levine.

Hart Hanson (Bones creator) and Kurt Sutter (Sons Of Anarchy creator) finally exchanged all the tweets needed to set up that long-ago-planned-to-be-made group ride on bikes.

Among some digs at Hanson’s Moto Guzzi (Moto Jacuzzi is just hilarious!), and trying to find a window into Adam’s tour schedule (and The Voice taping we guess), June appears now like the time.

And we hope strongly out of that ride comes also a cameo for Adam in SOA.

It’d be great.

We would also love if Adam would take Blake Shelton up for a ride along.

The Voice ratings EVEN INCREASED the second time, which is pretty unique for the way television works.

The show is just so very good and refreshing, and to compare it with the bore that is something so predictable as American Idol is not a good service.

Adam was again the one providing the most memorable moments, from the Pink tease with Cee-Lo, to the astonishing “But sadly you have a penis” on national tv exploit.

We wonder how the production will deal with him and his unstoppable mouth once the show will go live… he can say so much!

He still have the strongest team in our eyes; we hope the Battle rounds won’t make his first three picks face one another, because each of them (Jacob, Jeff and Rebecca) could win this.

Breaking moment with another video from Australia:

After The Voice and the planning of the bike ride with Sutter and Hanson, Adam in Australia got a surprising sparring partner for getting into his other passion beside motorbikes (and girls, but then now he is a so well-behaving faithful man…).

For a night of fun in Melbourne, Adam Levine and PJ Morton played basketball with…. JUSTIN BIEBER.

And it seems that team Adam+PJ+ Bieber’s manager Scooter Brown actually won (not without effort and pain and lots of hurting body parts the subsequent day).

We can just imagine the collective squealing of millions of young teenagers at the news (and in fact Adam’s mention timeline over twitter has been a constant retweeting of Beliebers since the exchange of tweets surfaced).

We are not that happy about this connection… we are way more excited after this morning Cee-Lo and Adam exchanged tweets in a very funny and charming and in Adam’s case full-mouthed way, hinting heavily at a collaboration, to be honest.

Way more pumped yes.

And we liked the way Cee-Lo called Adam, so fittingly, “handsome devil”.

Are we the only ones recalling Cee-Lo super-white and giant smile out of his emoticon, after having watched him smile so often on The Voice?

That man is great.

If or when some of our praise for Adam and Maroon 5 (but mostly Adam gets that from us) may seem to you a bit overboard (I am married and Serena is in a very stable relationship, and this should ask for more composure from us), we can tell you we can’t help but loving the man.

And we actually enjoyed to read this open praise of a gay blog about him, because it said very well what we find also irresistible about him, which make useless any attempt from people to make us “nothot” about him:

Oh, the benefits yoga has done with that perfect body of his fine self!

So evident, that Adam is 3rd on the list of the Celebrity Yoga addicted:

So Yummy you must just want to eat him.

And talking about eating… Maroon 5 will also be on television next week being guests for Top Chef Season: they have the chefs along?

Interesting:

Now please follow our link to this page and enjoy a multiple video sets of Adam on Brig & Lehmo Show in Melbourne (click on the image and o to the page to see the videos, that we can’t embed here):

Talking again about collaborations we would like to see Maroon 5 and Adam involved with, surely Sara Bareilles is on top list.

She is with them in Australia at the moment, and Adam actually used one of his “Video of The Day” to praise her:

Okay.

We think it’s enough for now, and we also are dead after three days of working over this post.

Maroon 5 have probably just stepped off stage from Sydney but you will be updated about that in the next post.

We hope for now you have enjoyed and you will enjoy our efforts with this one.

We tried our best.

See you next time,

Marghe&Sere.
