Maroon 5 facts – March/April 2011 – II

Written by Marghe&Sere

Hi wandering people!

Here we come with a second update of this up-and -coming space that will keep you informed with things related to Maroon 5 world, until somebody (who still better at doing this than we could ever be) will retake her position as informant, ending her current state of indifference about the guys who (still, believe us) are her favorite band.

Oh… and today we couldn’t have avoided to mention you, our darling Miss Z.: HAPPY 26th BIRTHDAY ZAIRA!!!

We know you’re enjoying yourself down there where you are now with your sweetheart Karim. We love you (and you throw best parties out by far and far and far… last weekend was fireworks!)

Adam Levine's shockingly yummy butt nsfw

Now we get back on topic.

We will track you back from where we left at past post, but the first input of today’s post is an invite to follow Jesse and Adam‘s footsteps and try to get into yoga, along their trainer, Chad:

Chad is Maroon 5 boys' yoga teacher

Also we like to start with something that is in real absolutely new in terms of time.

But we so like the song we want to put it up immediately and not waiting until you will scroll all the post of today.

Just the other day Maroon 5 have released the video for one of our favorite songs out off Hands All Over, “Runaway”.

The video will disappoint many maybe, because it shows nowhere the band, and it looks more like a documentary video, but in our opinion (and Zaira‘s, even though she’s so upset with Adam about The Voice she sure won’t say a word about this video for a long more) it’s a very beautiful take on the song, and it shows how well it describes universal feelings anyone can find himself drowned into.

This is Runaway video:

The song… We love to jam over it!

And now, we truly start our proper work, getting back from where we left last time, and prosecuting on and on.

Adam and Anne are often seen at Lakers games when they are in Los Angeles, because he would never miss a game in his right senses. This was  taken from their attendance at Lakers versus Orlando Magic, the last thing they did together those hours before Anne had to fly back to New York for working commitments that she later posted about, on March 15th:

Adam Levine and his girlfriend attend Lakers game in Los Angeles on March 14th 2011

The day in Los Angeles right now are often meaning for Adam to remain in an NBC studio and taping the first stages of The Voice, the new NBC contest for aspiring singers where he will be a mentor along Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo Green and country act Blake Shelton, with whom Adam is developing a very entertaining and open mouthed bromance (refer to their twitters if you like, thank you very much).

The Voice mentors

Adam and his fellow mentors have released lots of interviews (sometimes the links won’t work outside US though. We hope you have ways to catch these though, because Adam always is so cute when he speaks over camera!) about the incoming adventure of theirs, that we are trying to post or link as much as we can for you to enjoy.

On March 15th then The Warblers performed “Misery” on Glee.

We like Darren Criss’ take on the song, but that said, he lacks in our opinion the typical sexy snarl of Adam, and that is why Maroon 5 songs work better if Adam sings them… otherwise you miss the over-sexy, no matter how good a singer you are, Adam is a great singer with that sexy thing more than you could ever get from others.

This is Glee take at Misery:

Maroon 5 also shared a webisode out of their forcefully cut European  tour:

We are glad they rescheduled the dates lost out of Adam’s commitments with NBC.

from Los Angeles Times, Adam Levine, Anne V, and their beds

Now we know Maroon 5 isn’t a one man band, so what are the other guys doing when Adam is at NBC studios, smashing guitars and smiling with his flawless grin?

James Valentine indulges in his favorite sport, with famous people, for instance.

And he sweats… hearts, it seems:

James Valentine, tennis indulgent person

The whole band had some days in Los Angeles to spend around to celebrate birthdays, thing that drove Jesse back from Hawaii retirement for instance, as expected and logic of friendship would request (Adam and Anne’s detached from 24 hours birthdays to be precise, and Anne was keen at finishing her New York based commitment to get free to fly back to West again), but they were aware soon they would have to fly to London for the Coca Cola Outsourcing experiment that you can read about here, thank you:

For the birthdays’ time, anyway, there was somebody pretty important – considering the environmental surroundings – reaching Los Angeles as well along Anne V.

Her mother.

You make all of your guesses now. Certainly  we made ours, and this kind of developing stuff rings bells (decide which types of them yourselves).

Birthday bound Adam received as well cheerings from Hart Hanson, his first boss at work and fellow bike lover, and from Scrubs’ star Zach Braff; and both Adam and Anne received cheerings from their co-time feted stylist friend Aristotle, and from the man who connected them first in February 2010 at Sports Illustrated party, Jorge Perez:

But we know no cheering could please Adam more than this one he received from his lovingly girlfriend Anne:

Anne Vyalitsyna tweets her love to Adam Levine for his birthday

She’s a lucky girl, and very much in love if she can be overheard (as reported by New york Post in this article) constantly ravishing about her man:

But we will admit he is a lucky man too.

A gorgeous looking and uber-talented lucky man:

Maybe Adam would need a bit of Jesse’s laid back and mellow and wise approach to life, just maybe, to slow him down in his whirlwind-ed acts.

But then he would be Jesse and not Adam anymore and we’re pretty sure nobody wants that: not even Steve Nash, the famous baller, with whom he exchanged a very flattering tweet conversation.

Take a look at this, because here Adam is very much Adam:

We wonder if Adam, Hart Hanson, and Sons Of Anarchy’s creator Kurt Sutter will finally be able to have that ride over Harleys they are trying to set up since last year, given their schedules.

We still want that to happen mostly to have a final say about Adam Levine guest starring on the show of Kurt, as well.

This is the schedule of The Voice:

The show will be taped until the end of May episodes start, and this will allow all mentors to tour and do their stuff.

Maroon5 in fact still have a wide portion of Far East tour to accomplish, that hasn’t been affected by Japanese tsunami either.

This is a valuable interview Adam gave to a Philippines’ news source:

We found an old interview online with a spiky Ryan Seacrest that somehow fits with this interview, so take a look by clicking over the image and thank you again:

Ryan was so much cooler without dressing like his grandpa.

After the birthday frenzy, Adam had to leave Anne and Los Angeles and fly to London for the 24 hours marathon with Coca Cola and the fans that would eventually produce a song to be downloaded for free (and for charity).

It had to be intense to sleep barely for one hour and then stay awake for the press, the mixing, then again for the flight back and forth.

Intense, but worthy in our eyes.

We have multiple sources about that and an entire micro site from Coca Cola that you might just want to check:

You click up there and you get to the page from where you can download the song, the uptempo and feasty “Is Anybody out There?”, a song which features PJ Morton, and that is most certainly completely inspired by Anne V.

Out of our requests, then, Zaira last time agreed in posting something Maroon5 related again on her blog, even though you know at the moment she isn’t friendly with them at all.

Please, click here and scroll until the dedicated part of her post to get to see some good 4 hours and more of the fully streamed Coca Cola Session from her page.

Thank you Z. (mostly for the fact you gave to us NINE hours worthy of videos from that; thank you a lot also to Charisse and Melania for taping all that: our computers love all of what you did!).

If you can read French, this was posted by a French girl on her blog:

Back to The Voice, with yet another article.

We are not so sure about Shelton being cuddly.

We think he might be quite similar to Adam: even if reaching Adam’s level of ‘brattiness’ seems unlikely.

The videos from The Voice are pretty interesting, especially with Cee-Lo and Adam involved.

The routine in Los Angeles, waiting for Anne to reach him back again in a new meeting, was sort of romantic in a different way for Adam, back from London.

But he also had time to spend with his good friend Jake Gyllenhaal, at the Spare Room of the swanky Roosevelt hotel, which is also the place where Adam celebrated his birthday and the place where all of his crew and Anne use to bowl when they twitpic about it.

Jake later said to EW Adam is a better bowler than he is.

Roots matter for Adam, and while we take for granted that all his fans and Maroon 5’s know that, we are sure you will enjoy this little feature of Adam’s dad, Fred Levine:

Adam also enjoyed at once family bonds and more Lakers games while in Los Angeles to accomplish his working duties with NBC; he brought first his grandma and then his stepbrother Sam at the Lakers games.

He’s really a family type.

And so is Anne: as Adam was bringing his silverfoxy granny at Staples Center, Anne was taking her mum at Madison Square Garden for some Knicks support.

The two ladies were really cute but we have to say the reaction of Adam at the “Go Knicks!” shout wasn’t really happy.

Adam is a Laker obsessed fan, granted.

Anne somehow had to justify globally the fact she can’t help but cheer on the Knicks (she has lived in New York all her life out of Europe! It’s natural she cheers on the town’s team?).

A bit of gossip news that can turn some head: it seems that Anne and Adam will be attending Kings Of Leon’s Caleb Followill’s marriage with model Lily Aldrige.

This news still relating to family, after all?

A music news one instead is this: Adam will be featured in an incoming Gym Class Hero’s song called ‘Stereo Hearts’ (we knew this already from twitter, now we get to know the title of the song):

Adam might be more regularly featured in music news, but Jesse always is featured in heart-connected things and so we are happy to share his message:

Jesse also shared the twitpic of his childhood teddy bears: the cuteness!

And in the same subject of cuteness, here it comes the images of Adam taking Sam at the Lakers game:

From People Magazine we got to learn that seated next to Sam was Jeremy Piven : we love that this year Adam’s giving free light in snapping Sam to Noah Graham, the Getty NBA associated photographer that takes most of his pictures at Staples Center.

Sam has got standard Levine’s jawline…

That day rolled on and moved to feature also a night of family business as there was a special opening  again involving Fred’s activity, where again Adam and little Sam attended at too.

Adam there met fans and event-goers effortlessly.

He’s very down-to-earth if nothing bothers him.

On the other side of USA, the morning after, Anne had to wake up early for an important job: she landed herself along Iza Goulart and Aline Weber the Donna Karan DKNY Fall/Winter 2011 campaign.

Pretty good job, Anne: Adam’s sure proud of you.

And the rest of the world must give it up to the girl (we know it isn’t easy, but the girl has qualities, it’s hard to confute).

She also shared that day that the week after she would have walked without shoes for the annual charity organized by TOMS shoes which gives visibility to the fact in the world billions of children in poverty don’t even have shoes to walk with.

So, Anne Vyalitsyna in line is: beautiful, kind, she’s got a good brain, she’s got a good heart… and she’s got Adam Levine’s love.

Some people are luckier than others, from start to finish.

That’s what we learn thanks to Anne.

Don’t think we are mean if we don’t extensively cover Anne’s activities and we just detailed some of these two things she did here: we can slide over them a bit because Zaira will most surely create proper pieces about Anne: she might have outed Adam for a while off her own blog until he won’t end The Voice thing, but she still so into Anne she will create for her something, and so we don’t have to.

In a way, this is good because it’s hard for us to accept she might be the one for Adam (which we totally think she is, in fact).

Zaira has always been better than us in handling this fact: she called it as soon as Anne stepped into Adam’s life, last year.

She immediately ravished saying already by March 2010 Anne was meant to be the one completing Adam, for the better.

Foresight of tall, slim, blonde beautiful girls are in tune among them maybe?

We don’t know because both Serena and I are shorter than 5’7” (Zaira is 5’9” and Anne is 5’10”), we are brunettes and although we are slim, we need way more than genes to keep our sizes, and we struggle to fit the right way bikinis in a way definitely Anne and Zaira won’t ever experience.

Forgive us for being still jealous of Anne.

We like her, but it’s hard not to think that some people have it all and some other… won’t.

We will be happier in telling what Adam was doing while his half worked in New York anyway.

He was doing interviews with Carlson Daly for The Voice, and being as expected a bit bossy about the competition:

Adam has recruited famous producer and music all over man Adam Blackstone for his The Voice team, and this means we think crooning and hip pop beats will dominate Adam’s team sound.

If Adam Levine will ever make a solo record, we think Blackstone would be an excellent producer choice too.

Adam let his inner circle being snapped from NBC cameras too (how big is Shawn getting? He wasn’t that built a few months ago?).

On April 1st Adam took his rommate Gene Hong at the Lakers game against Dallas team:

Adam becomes a TREE for the bimonthly current cover of YRB Magazine (it’s a fashion and trends magazine you find in USA retailers such as Barnes & Noble, if you care to wonder):

After the game ended, Adam tweeted that he would go silent for a little while.

We understand why: the moment he reappeared at Staples Center on Sunday he was with Anne, all smiling and happy.

She didn’t even tweet she was moving from New York to Los Angeles as she does generally, so it’s safe to assume the two wanted to be completely on their own.

But since Adam was spotted on Saturday at the Kids Choice Awards, it’s also safe to assume she was with him there too?

Well, she was when he was grocery shopping at HHills Market.

Family life.

Are they blessed or what?

Anne was meant to leave Adam’s side on Monday morning, as she would have to lead the TOMS shoes event the day after in New York, but it’s hard not to understand why Adam now believes the shit out of Ray Charles’ singing, now that she is into his life.

If you are not familiar with his material, think that some of his most famous songs are:

Halleluya I Love Her So, All I Ever Need Is You, I Got A Woman, Night Time Is The Right Time, This Little Girl Of Mine… and you paint the rest easily after those, we think.

Anne did a really great job on the Without Shoes project: Sara Bareilles and James Valentine tweeted their support to the cause and she was really energetic all day about the cause; she gave a few interviews and brought again her mum along for support; she bared the rain and kept a beautiful smile all day long.

Why are we talking again about her, you’ll ask probably.

All to present you this Just Jared interview, which is nice, and which tells at some points something that could definitely involve Adam as well.

Talking still about family things, and kids.

We still hear bells whistles: do you?

Anyway Adam couldn’t take off his shoes that day because he was still at NBC studios:

We’are at the finish line.

One more interview, candid and honest, given to Australian newspaper yesterday:

We also add the latest video from Adam witnessing the Lakers against Utah Jazz on April 5th evening:

With its related picture, too, for you:

Just this past hours there have been more taping of The Voice, where it has started to be taped the moment of elimination apparently.

Adam got a bond with Cee-Lo’s team partner Monica (Monica is a famous R&B singer and wife of Laker Shannon Brown… enough for Lakers enthusiast Levine to start a Twitter following and reciprocate the consideration, we see!).

There is a picture you will like:

And this one too:

This is all?

It is.

This weekend the guys will be in Barbados for the special event Breakfast in Barbados and considering Anne is in Turcs and Caicos for shooting for the brand that gave her the swimsuit for Sports llustrated this year, probably the couple will reunite in the Caribbean soon?

For sure James Valentine has also to get reunited with the guys (he is in New York from a few days, after jamming with JJAMZ in Los Angeles past week).

We will keep you informed about this all, and incoming Turkey and Dubai gigs with next post.

For now, we hope you liked our efforts in this one.

Maroon 5 facts – March 2011 – I

Written by: Marghe&Sere

In this blog post we will try to bring you some news about Maroon 5 listed in chronological order.

Adam Levine

Please don’t expect the style of writing you were used to whenever Zaira was uploading pieces of news in her blog because neither of us can be as creative as our unique Miss Z.

We are going to try to use her method of linking many Twitter posts as we write though  – she said it’s the best way to keep the writing short, and she must know?

We are using this limited space to just try to fill the gap until The Voice stops airing or preparing, so that she will feel again ready to cherish on Maroon 5 and Adam Levine (our Lady Z. can be very stubborn and harsh on her principles, and she truly felt so let down by Adam ditching touring for being in a reality show… but she has promised a small Maroon-related update these days of birthdays, and then a very beautiful version of Stutter, that we will link as well hopefully soon from her YouTube Page).

Anyway, let’s start with the updates and  we leap off with a linkage of a couple of videos that you will like.

The first one is the recently released Sara Bareilles’ video for Uncharted.

Jesse and Adam star along a very huge number of other musicians, so we are sure you will like what you see:

After this video, we post some more videos from Maroon 5 page, included the one of Hands All Over that Zaira never linked in her pages (because she hates it):

Video for the announcement about the interrupted European tour:

The tour beside it has already been re-scheduled for November /December dates (in Italy now we have THREE dates and not just one, as joining Milan in December are also Rome and Padova).

Rescheduled Maroon 5 dates

Maroon 5 have also posted a new webisode of their performed actual European leg, which ended already, but developed mostly in UK:

While Maroon5 were in Amsterdam, instead, you know Adam tatted himself with a “I Love Mum” tattoo on his arm, opposite to his beautiful tiger tattoo, and he was inked by one of the greatest tattoo artists in the world.

The month of March started with Maroon5 moving towards Paris, and also offering a song to charity for a very important cause (read this article from the Huffington Post about it, thank you) .

Another charitable initiative is this one (again, just click and read from Maroon5 Blog directly, thank you).

In Paris, on their free day, the band (well, Adam more than “the band”) was joined by his girlfriend Anne V, who was meant to be in town for Paris Fashion week, and who had left Los Angeles after taking a stand during Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

The two very much in love drove around town as soon as she arrived in Paris, because she had to attend various fittings and castings, but then lately in the day they had ways to relax and enjoy their own off-time.

They also ate a lot – Adam doesn’t like model who starves, as he tweeted – and it seems that Adam’s look was taken as not very bound to Fashion Week later that night.

Serena and I are extremely jealous of Anne, still, especially when she tweets things that clearly describe the way she and Adam share the most valuable time as one, but we have to admit in all these months she has grown on us a lot. We are not in awe of her like for instance Zaira is and always was, but now we think she is a great girlfriend for Adam… We do.

She is in synch with many if not every one of Adam’s crew people, and loved back by all of them from what we get to know openly.

That is cute.

And it’s likely to keep Adam quite happy.

In Paris Adam wore again this sweater (from a picture that surfaced of him holding hands with Anne before the performance):

Fashion Face Off Beckham vs Levine

The show in Paris the day after has been (in the words of a very pissed off Zaira, who was there and not really easy to conquer, since her disappointment for the ruined rest of her touring March) “absolutely fantastic”.

Adam has also started to tweet a lot more since his open acceptance of the judging role on The Voice, so we had chances more to understand how he was feeling also before that gig.

And after.

Anne also had a very private and beautiful view of the Casino De Paris stage:

Anne V saw this

After gig Adam tried to best his fashion range, but we don’t think it worked (do you?):

Adam Levine cow-boy style in Paris

And these are James and Mickey, as well post gig:

James Valentine and Mickey Madden. And a dog.

If you want to see more pictures from the Paris gig, please go to this Flickr page and surf happily.

After Paris, Maroon5 moved out of France for a date more in Cologne, and again Adam felt some urge to write.

This is some kind of explanation or apology, we guess:

Message from Adam Levine

Some new activity to keep the band going that is not linked to The Voice show is incoming for Maroon5 no matter the postponed tour.

The most notable is the outsourcing experiment the band will experience along Coca Cola Company:

Click and jump on the page, thank you

Other appearances will include a guest spot on the cooking show “Top Chef”, which new season starts in the USA on April 6th.

If you belong to Maroon 5 S.I.N. Club (and we do), sign to win Adam’s Grammy Pass through this competition.

Maroon5 flew back to California after Cologne, when Anne stayed in Paris for attending a fashion show for Isabel Marant among other duties.

It seems that Adam and the band are recording or at least pre-recording some new material.

Adam said it’s jazz-oriented and it sounds promising.

Or it could also be that Adam’s a very huge egomaniac, as he noted himself.

From Savannah Buffet

Adam shared with a publishing source dedicated to food some steak recipe.

We are Italians and not impressed, but other people might find this that he wrote tasty?

Probably his girlfriend finds his skills at cooking fine enough though: and we guess she probably likes anything he tries anyway.

Sunday Dinner with Adam Levine

Anne flew “home” in Los Angeles as soon as her working duties in Europe allowed her to, and she is spending still time aside her man (paint both Serena and Margherita sighing. Margherita slightly less, because her husband might mind a little bit).

Anne and Adam shared as well International Women’s Day and it was funny the way Adam had – or seemed to have – a very kindred and useful approach to honoring the event, that was later on quite remarked a bit from Anne herself (we will admit she is kind of funny, too).

Anne V for VS Pink 2011

Anne V 12 march '11

Anne not only shares happily Adam’s patterns of life; she doesn’t merely enjoy his circle of friends, which is now hers; she does not limit herself in liking sushi just as much as he does, or Italian food, or French wine; she also seems to totally share as well Adam’s love for yoga… for sweetsand for animated movies.

Up is one of the best movies lately made so it’s not like we can make fun of neither Adam nor Anne for having spent a night watching it.

These past days Adam and Anne enjoyed themselves in the spare times.

For instance on Saturday it was time for some Universal Studios checking up in Los Angeles area.

Now that had sure to be fun.

And pretty… sweet again.

On Sunday instead, after a night spent playing the pool, the Harleys took place in and it became time for a long ride on the Pacific Coast Highway, one of the most beautiful roads in the whole world, full of breathtaking sightseeing.

The last week Adam has been using his time to get ready for his coaching job for The Voice.

The show will probably be available for streaming online as the majority of NBC shows are.

This means not only Americans will be allowed to watch.

Adam has done press, shot promos, and shot photo sessions, and just these days he has started tape the actual show previews.

The Voice Taping is running now

This is why he had to postpone Maroon 5 gigs so no surprises.

About his mentoring role, he had multiple things to say over twitter, and most of them were quite enjoyable (this if you are not somebody very lateral about the fact he will do that show, of course).

This was then the mail we received as SIN members, with the complete schedule of the new leg of the tour in November /December:

SIN Newsroom March 2011

Actually it has to be highlighted that the Cairo gig that even this page reports as running, has been in fact POSTPONED, as you can read from Maroon 5 Blog:

Cairo gig postponed too

Let’s hope it’s not a trend.

Also because for instance the Japanese situation casts a shadow on incoming trips.

Japanese tragedy has hit all of the boys, especially Jesse (who was in Hawaii when the after wave of trembling undersea forces reached the Islands), and of course also Adam, Anne and the whole of the band.

Adam also tweeted in disgust about that stupid student of UCLA who ranted against poor Japanese people dying for the tsunami (people can be very stupid, indeed).

More touring dates (in USA) are these two:

Ravinia Festival 2011

And a very special Hollywood Bowl performance along Train (wow?):

Maroon 5 and Train Hollywood Bowl

James Valentine in the time being has been enjoying mixing JJAMZ’s record (cool stuff), and then he has taken advantage of the Indian Wells tournament, being the tennis enthusiast we know about.

Are we the only ones though who found his note about Maria Sharapova’s a bit… awkward, given the time she was with Adam?

Adam Levine and Anne V - Lakers game 14 March 2011

Oh, well, it’s their link and business anyway?

We never found Maria the right girl for Adam.

And speaking about Russians…

In a handful of hours, we know it will be Adam’s 32nd birthday (on March 18th); the day after, on March 19th, Anne will turn 25.

The two are probably going to get celebrated again together as they were last year (along Aristotle Circa, Adam’s pal and stylist), and by then Adam will have to accept that he’s fully “thirthy-something”.

We wonder if they will be attending again the Lakers game on the 18th of March, as they did on March 14th to see Los Angeles Lakers prevail onto the Orlando Magic; again they seemed pretty picture perfect and completely happy as the Kiss Cam wandered on them.

They are surely as cute as a button together.

We can’t deny evidence.

On March 17th Adam is slated to attend Clinton’s Benefit soirée for his Charity Foundation: Anne must be here along, we have no doubts (check this Billboard News about the upcoming event).

We have decided to end our first major upload on this blog ( it took us hours, and we wondered how Zaira could do this repeatedly and covering NOT ONLY the band’s stuff?!??) with a very nice plus.

Glee has done a cover of Misery, and it’s worth of a listen, although no, nothing comes close as Adam’s singing:
