Last night, the new season of American Horror Story premiered with a star-studded bang just in time for Halloweeeeen. It was a regular clusterfuck of familiar faces, and some moments were genuinely scary. However, I’m afraid there were far more “oofs” in the hour-long premiere than “eeks,” so I’m rounding up the ten most unintentionally hilarious moments. Spoilers ahead! More
Topic: Maroon 5
Every day, we see a different artist billed as the next big thing. The next Justin Bieber! The next Adele! But who, out of all those musicians on YouTube, Facebook, Reddit, and Twitter, will make it to the top? Who really is the next Justin Bieber? The next Lady Gaga? Nicki Minaj? John Mayer? Rihanna? Well, just for you, we combed the internet to find out. And we’ve rounded up all our top pics right here. Some of these artists are already making a name for themselves, and others will only be recognized by the truly internet-obsessed. More
Do you have any idea how difficult it was for me to check off “Music” as the category for this post? I’m a little sad we don’t have a category for “piercing, repetitive ear poison.” Perhaps I should talk to tech about that. More
this week, Adam Levine, the lead singer of Maroon Five and judge on The Voice, somehow managed to be a bad guy and a nice guy all in one sentence.Â He revealed to Details Magazine that he sleeps with so many women because, â€śhe loves women so much.â€ťÂ I think this is the most brilliant thing Iâ€™ve ever heard.

What makes this Maroon 5 parody “Moves Like Batman” so good are the geeky touches like Batman dancing and the “nanana” in the chorus. More
In “Yes/No,” Will has the glee club come up with musical proposals for Emma. Ranging from Maroon 5 to Rihanna, they were sweet but not the most exhilarating numbers we’ve seen. More
Mashup-Germany has debuted its mix of the 28 most successful songs of 2011, called Top of the Pops 2011, and would you believe that it uses Britney Spears‘ “Till the World Ends” and Maroon 5‘s “Moves Like Jagger” as the base songs? Don’t worry, there’s good stuff in here, too. More
You know you’re doing poorly in the brains arena when you can’t even win a twitter fight with the man who wrote that most nonsensical of nonsense poems, “Moves Like Jagger.” More
You know someone’s really being an asshole when you find yourself siding with MTV in a dispute. More
I know we’ve said some unkind things about his music in the past, but at the end of the day, Adam Levine is a tasty bit of man candy, is he not? In a recent interview with Out Magazine, Levine said some things that actually made sense (“I’ve got the moves like Jagger” wasn’t one of them), in addition to many things that did not. Sure, we’d like him better if in addition to rock hard abs he had Adam Scott‘s personality, but the fun thing about celebrities you are never going to meet is you can look at pictures of them and make pretend they have whatever type of personality your spank bank requires. Maybe don’t read the quotes from the interview if you’re going to do this. More
Maroon 5 just released their new video for the song “Moves Like Jagger,” which has Adam Levine comparing himself to none other than the legendary Mick himself — and it’s enough to make a person gather up all their records and throw them in a bonfire while “Rocks Off” plays from a boombox at full volume. Understandably upset, I enlisted the Gchat account of Kasey Anderson, a terrific musician in his own right, to help me make sense of the video. I’m not sure either of us managed to do that. More
Adam Levine wasn’t always the suave, tattooed hunk of a frontman we see singing into the souls of young women at Maroon 5 concerts. Nope, he was once a child, who wore geeky sunglasses and 80s jeans. This karaoke-style performance cropped up on last night’s episode of Jay Leno, and Adam explains that it was the first time he ever sang in public. We sort of wish he’d kept the aesthetic. More
Okay, let’s break this down:
1. Air is that which sustains us and keeps us alive.
2. Music is no different from air, therefore music keeps us alive.
3. Music keeps us alive, however music is not to be taken seriously.
4. That which keeps us alive is not to be taken seriously.
“Staying alive is not an important thing at all.” – Adam Levine More
