Prankster Covers Adam Levine In Sugar Outside Jimmy Kimmel

Maroon 5 have a new single called “Sugar.” And so when frontman Adam Levine was arriving at Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform the song, some joker apparently ran at Levine and threw powdered sugar all over him, covering his clothes and one side of his face. This is obviously next-level pun work; we’re dealing with… More »

Beck Will Perform With Chris Martin At The Grammys

The 57th annual Grammy Awards will air this Sunday, and we already know that host LL Cool Jay (cue a collective groan) will not be the show’s main attraction, nor will it be the winning results. Most of us watch the Grammys for the insanely over-produced performances and incredulous conversation fodder. We already know that… More »

Tegan And Sara, The Lonely Island, John Legend, Common Nominated For Oscars

As I’m writing this, the Oscar nominees are coming out and hitting the newswire, and the big story seems to be Selma getting shut out from many of the major categories. But this is a music site, so we’ll focus on what’s happening musically. In the always-contentious Best Original Song category, the Oscar voters are… More »

New Maroon 5 Video -“Wake Up” (Director’s Cut)

Ever get the feeling Maroon 5 videos are just a thinly veiled front for Adam Levine’s “I-roll-around-in-bed-with-hot-women” exhibitionism? Well, why would you think that? Now this is the director’s cut of Levine’s latest more-glam-than-you odyssey, and it’s cinema-style like “She Will Be Loved” — with less Kelly Preston and more of Levine popping caps i… More »

New Maroon 5 Video – “Makes Me Wonder”

Five short years after Songs About Jane swept the airwaves and ruled the TRL set, Maroon 5 are back to work. It won’t be long before It Won’t Be Soon Before Long is out soon. (Believe it or not, that sentence makes complete sense, give or take a soon.) And five years on, Adam Levine… More »

“Why You Can’t Ignore Kanye”

Hip-hop gets the cover of Time. “More GQ than gangsta, Kanye West is challenging the way rap thinks about race and class.”

Yeah, he’s preppier than the other rappers, but if Kanye is really so innovative, why the tired Mayfield sample?
