Adam Levine Suddenly Wants To Drive Race Cars, And No, There’s No Context For That

Adam Levine opening his arms on The Voice GIFI think Adam Levine might be pregnant, because he just revealed one of the weirdest cravings I’ve ever heard of. It wasn’t for pickles and ice cream, and he doesn’t wake up wanting sauerkraut, ala Mila Kunis, but all of a sudden he needs to be a race car driver. And there’s no time to lose.

I’m used to Adam being kind of an odd bug, going totally blond last week just to remind us that he’s a douchebag, but even I was unprepared for the complete lack of context that accompanied his most recent tweet:

Let’s unpack that. Where was he and what was he doing that he didn’t have time to even spell-check this nonsense. I MUST BECOME I RACECAR DRIVER. Maybe in an ESL class? Or perhaps he unearthed a time machine and took himself back to kindergarten, where he was asked what he’d like to be when he grows up and gave a perfectly natural response? (For a five-year old.) I BE I RACECAR DRIVER.

What sort of strange new code is this, Adam? What does it mean that it ‘just feels right’? More right than being famous for womanizing? That seems like a pretty sweet gig, if you can get it, and you’ve already got it, so why drive yourself nowhere for an hour around a track with other guys doing the same thing?

Like, I’m sorry to keep harping on this, but I really can’t get over this. What snapped in your mind, Adam? Did you finally get around to seeing DriveIs this a Ryan Gosling thing? Or are you asleep? I’d accept any explanation, but throw at least one at me.

    First thought: oh God, he wants to be Paul Newman. He watched Cool Hand Luke one to many times. I hope we don’t have to deal with his acting attempts again, I don’t think anybody has erased AHS: Asylum out of their head yet…..and next up? Levine’s Own brand will pop up in grocery stores.

      Oh god I hope not. I can’t take it.

    Hi Alexis. My guess is high and in midlife crisis. I don’t get motorsports either. I get the thrill of speed when driving myself, but watching people drive around in circles? No, thanks.

    I’ve only really discovered Adam Levine these last couple of months on The Voice…after intentionally avoiding learning ANYTHING about him. Turns out my tax guy golfs with him (or on the same course). That one degree of separation caused my curiosity to kick in. Basic impression on this topic…Adam has attention span issues (ADHD). He’s bored with music and wants to make a name for himself in another arena. I’m actually rooting for him. Lol!!

    • Dusty

      Also, twitter makes things appear more random than they are. Could be a long time coming…this endeavor. He’s been into Porches for a while.

    • Maha

      Wow, did that diagnosis come based solely on this tweet? Because you’ve impressed me, he does have ADHD.

    • Dusty

      Lol! No. I work in the humanities and have seen the gamut of problems in kids. I saw Adam’s ADHD commercial and thought it was a tremendously powerful thing for him to do.

    It’s called being bored with routine, randomly finding something not boring to you, driven to do it, being intense about it, and wanting the instant gratification of “now”. I TOTALLY get it… but I have ADHD and I am assuming the person who posted the article does not.

    I guess you’ve never had autocorrect change anything you typed? Read the other posts about Patrick Dempsey, which triggered that comment. If you don’t like him, then why waste your time posting about him? He’s not hurting anyone, but he likes to be adventurous..and he’s fortunate to be able to! My hubby would love to drive a race car but that doesn’t make him a douchebag!

  • Tiffany Stine

    hi umm there are tweets before this about something. it’s not just a psychotic random rambling. first it was “I’m pretty sure I just saw a mattress commercial starring Patrick Dempsey dressed like a racecar driver driving a Porsche” then “Just found out Patrick Dempsey IS a racecar driver. Awesome! Now the only thing that seems weird is the mattress commercial part.” then lastly “I absolutely must become I racecar driver now. It just feels right”

    • Lorrie

      Thank you! Glad someone else was able to read too! Picking and choosing what she wants to comment on, is what starts ridiculous rumors!

  • Maha

    It’s not a Ryan Gosling thing guys, it’s a Dempsey thing. It’s a total of 3 tweets on the racecar thing.
    And yes, he is a douche bag at times, but he’s cocky, he’s sweet, he’s honest, he loves attention, he’s self deprecating, has goofy sense of humor, gets along with everyone and loves having a fun time. It’s so weird, you can’t say he’s a total douche bag and you can’t be totally annoyed with him either.
    So I just settle for shaking my head and just loving him for his antics.

  • Napoleon

    I’m sure it has something to do with his apparent mid-life crisis. He’s always seemed to have a complex anyway..
