Maroon 5 Wins Favorite Band at 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Maroon 5 picked up the award for Favorite Band at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards (Jan. 9). Singer and ‘The Voice’ coach Adam Levine may have sparked a ‘New Couple Alert’ with his acceptance speech, since he referenced Taylor Swift. Wait, what?

Well, here’s what happened. Swift won Favorite Country Artist a few minutes earlier and presenter/actress Olivia Munn joked that T. Swizzle wrote ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ about her. She then pretended to clutch the award and refused to hand it over to Swift, who deadpanned, “This always happens,” which is a reference to Kanye West firebombing her VMAs acceptance speech a few years ago.

So, Levine stumbled for words, saying, “Thank you very much and everyone gets up here and thanks the fans and that’s boring, but being in a band it’s the fans… Taylor Swift is so charming.”

He literally interrupted himself, and then said, “She got up here and said, ‘This always happens,’ that’s genius, by the way. Damn you, Swift.”

He probably meant that since she wins so many awards, she is in the position to have people mess with her speeches. It was cute, and really had nada to do with winning Favorite Band, but perhaps this will spark some communication and tweets between the two, leading to a little something, something? You never, like, ever, know.

Eat your heart out, Harry Styles. Your ex-girlfriend knocked ‘em dead tonight in her elegant winter white Ralph Lauren frock with a plunging neckline, paired with bronzed, smoky eyes. Fly back to the States and win her back!

Chart-topping pop stars Nicki Minaj and Adam Levine have partnered with Kmart to bring their respective fashion lines to its stores and the shopping website, ShopyourWay.com.

As we previously reported, both the Queen Barbz and Maroon 5 frontman will develop separate lifestyle brands that will include apparel, housewares and accessories.

“We welcome Adam and Nicki into our world and look forward to capturing their energy and creativity on ShopYourWay.com and translating it into unique apparel, accessories and other merchandise,” beamed Imran Jooma, a Marketing & Online executive at Sears Holdings, which owns Kmart.

For Minaj, this is a great opportunity for her to create a unique fashion line, which she has always talked about in past interviews. “I am so excited to work with this iconic, mass retailer and to bring affordable fashion to my beautiful barbz all across the U.S.,” she said.

“Partnering with Shop Your Way to develop this line was an exciting opportunity for me and I am really looking forward to diving into the process of designing an apparel and accessory collection,” added Levine.

Both lifestyle brands from Minaj and Levine are expected to hit Kmart stores by the 2013 holiday season.

Adam Levine vs. Justin Bieber: Who Will Make the Best ‘SNL’ Host? – Readers Poll

Following in the steps of previous ‘Saturday Night Live’ hosts like Bruno Mars and Justin Timberlake, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and Justin Bieber are the latest singers recruited for the sketch comedy series. Both Levine and Bieber will host and perform on ‘SNL’ soon, but which crooner are you most excited to see on TV?

Both of these fellas have plenty of experience in front of cameras and onstage, so it’ll be interesting to see which show is more enjoyable. While Bieber, who is set to host on Feb. 9, is used to performing in front of thousands of fans on the reg, Levine can also put on a commanding, arena-sized performance with ease. Additionally, both of the guys have done some serious acting for music videos, like M5′s ‘One More Night’ clip and Bieber’s ‘As Long as You Love Me’ mini-movie.

On the other hand, when it comes to face time on TV, will Levine’s home-court advantage help him out? The ‘One More Night’ crooner has gotten really used to the TV cameras thanks to his multi-season stint as a coach on ‘The Voice.’ While the NBC reality singing competition isn’t nearly as scripted as ‘SNL’ clearly is, judging from his educated but often entertaining critiques, we think Levine will be able to tickle our funny bones on ‘SNL’ when he hosts on Jan. 26.

But don’t let the Bieber’s lack of TV time (aside from performing at like, every event ever) fool you. This kid has shown off his acting chops before, and he certainly has displayed his  great sense of humor in the past. Remember his appearance on ‘SNL’ last May, where he helped the show celebrate its 100th digital short? Or when Bieber punked Taylor Swift? That was ah-mazing. Starring in his very own biopic should’ve been practice enough!

So, whose monologue are you anticipating most? Who do you want to see dressed up in silly costumes and poking fun at themselves the most? Vote Adam or Justin for the best ‘SNL’ host below, and be sure to tune in to their respective broadcasts on Jan. 26 and Feb. 9 on NBC.

Blake Shelton + Adam Levine Dish on New ‘Voice’ Coaches for Season 4

Anyone who was worried that the influx of new coaching talent on Season 4 of ‘The Voice‘ might disrupt Adam Levine and Blake Shelton‘s incessant joshing can officially set their minds at ease.

As Entertainment Weekly made clear in a recent sit-down with the bromantic duo and their producer-slash-host, Carson Daly, we can expect plenty of Adam and Blake’s signature back-and-forth in the weeks to come.

Asked what we can expect from the upcoming run, Daly offered a couple of tidbits. “We loved the steal — we thought the steal really worked,” he responded, before going on to talk about the shake-up that has Usher and Shakira joining the coaching stable in place of the departed Cee Lo and Christina Aguilera. But the change isn’t permanent; as Daly put it, “Those guys are world-renowned musicians first, and America’s favorite TV coaches second,” and they’ll be back on the show before long.

In the meantime, the new coaching lineup means that, as Levine put it, Shelton “gets to spend a season making Usher feel uncomfortable” — something Shelton cheerfully copped to, admitting that “I think I’m doing a really good job at that, by the way — I’ve said and done about everything I can that crosses the line.” But that doesn’t mean his affection for Levine has waned: “As much as I think he’s cute and I have the bromance with Usher,” promised Shelton, “I’ll always come home” [to Levine].

And as for Shakira? In Shelton’s words, “I honestly think Shakira is maybe the most competitive person on the show … you can tell she feels like she has something to prove.”

From there, talk turned to Levine’s upcoming appearance on ‘Saturday Night Live,’ and which cast members might be best equipped to play Daly and Shelton. Levine suggested Bill Hader for the former and Fred Armisen for the latter, then quickly realized that Shelton didn’t know what he was talking about. He started to explain what ‘SNL’ was, at which point Shelton nodded and said, “Adam Sandler‘s on that show.”

“He was 20 years ago,” scoffed Levine. “Give me a break,” sighed Shelton. Yep, nothing’s coming between these two.

Nicki Minaj + Adam Levine to Launch Fashion Lines

Want to dress like Nicki Minaj or Adam Levine? You’ll have that chance soon enough, according to a new report, which suggests that the superstars are planning to release their own fashion lines together at a major department store before the end of 2013.

Page Six reports that the reality show judges from rival shows are about to sign a contract to create fashion, accessories and even housewares for an unnamed store along the lines of Walmart or Target. The deal could be finalized as soon as this week.

A retail insider tells the paper that pairing up Levine and Minaj is a way to harness their collective star power, just as Kohl’s did with Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. “The Kohl’s partnership with Marc and Jennifer has been hugely successful,” the source says. The Kohl’s deal and the new Levine-Minaj partnership were both spearheaded by Charles Koppelman, who has worked for Steve Madden and Martha Stewart Living.

The new fashion lines are expected to launch in time to reach stores by the 2013 holiday season. We wonder if Minaj will tone down her outrageous style to cater to a mainstream retailer, or if her clothing line will stick with the wild kinds of outfits she typically wears. Levine, on the other hand, often sticks to plain t-shirts and basic suits, so we’re equally eager to see what he comes up with.

Adam Levine to Make His ‘Saturday Night Live’ Hosting Debut in January

While we are kind of bummed the holiday celebrations are officially over (womp, womp), we now have a reason to continue celebrating the new year!

Earlier today, thanks to the ever popular Twitter, we learned that our he-doesn’t-know-it-yet boyfriend Adam Levine is set to host ‘Saturday Night Live’ on January 26th! Yes, you read that right! Levine will be hosting the late-night sketch comedy show, not performing with Maroon 5.

As bummed as we are that he and the band won’t be playing any of their hits from their latest release ‘Overexposed,’ we’re kind of thrilled to see how Levine will handle live-acting duties; more importantly, we’re more than hoping that he’ll suffer a comedic break during a sketch and laugh uncontrollably.

Those are always the best parts, right?

But if you’re kind of disappointed that Maroon 5 will most likely be a no-show, have no fear. The folks over at ‘SNL’ did us viewers a solid by pairing up our yummy host with musical guest Kendrick Lamar, so it’s sure to be a helluva episode.

So, make sure you set your DVR’s and get your comfiest pants ready, because if his too-soon appearance on ‘American Horror Story: Asylum’ showed us anything, it’s that he surely won’t disappoint.

NBC’s ‘The Voice’ Unveils First Shots of New Coaches Shakira and Usher (PHOTOS)

the-voice-season-4-promo-shots

Shakira and Usher look pretty comfy in their new coaching roles in NBC’s new promo shots for the fourth season of The Voice.

Getting fans excited for the next season, the stars take their place in the big, red swivel chairs – replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green — alongside veteran judges Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.

The chemistry already seems to be brewing on-set with the foursome, and Levine may even have a new co-star to banter with — even though he will miss Aguilera’s ball-busting.

“I’m going to miss him,” the “Your Body” songstress told Celebuzz. “He’ll miss me too. Nobody can bust his balls like me.”

“It’s bittersweet,” Aguilera added at the show’s live finale, which crowned Cassadee Pope as the Season 3 winner. “I’m not going to lie, watching the footage – the happy birthday wishes – the guys, we have a lot of fun and a lot of laughs and we bicker, we love each other like family, like brothers and sisters.”

In September, The Voice announced that they renewed two more seasons of reality singing competition series and that singers Usher, 33, and Shakira would replace Green, 38, and Aguilera, 32, as coaches for the show’s fourth season until the original two return to their seats (after pursuing their own musical projects).

The new panel of coaches will make their Voice debut when Season 4 premieres on March 25 on NBC.

Adam Levine Wages War on Blake Shelton


Adam Levine is waging war on his buddy Blake Shelton. Now that the country star judge has won two consecutive seasons of ‘The Voice,’ Levine is done playing nice.

During a post-finale interview with E! News, Shelton managed to get one sentence out before Levine interrupted the coach and took over the mic, saying: “Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, I won twice, blah, blah!”

Shelton then jokingly admitted “he’s already dreading season four,” which caused Levine to dish out some fightin’ words. “Your ass is f–king grass … It’s f–king on,” the Maroon 5 frontman fronted. “It’s a bloodbath next season. I’m taking your tall country ass down!”

The two couldn’t sustain the fake fight for long, though. They ended up cracking up on camera, with Blake adding that he didn’t hear anything Levine said because he was too distracted by his bow tie. It’s always a barrel of laughs when it comes to these frenemies!

While Levine may be preparing for a smackdown next season, he’ll have some fresh competition to deal with. Usher and Shakira will be replacing Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera next year, and could prove to be powerhouses on the show. Season 4 of ‘The Voice’ premieres on Monday, March 25.

‘The Voice’s’ Adam Levine Says He’ll Miss Christina Aguilera ‘Busting His Balls’ (VIDEO)

When NBC’s The Voice returns for Season 4 in March, there will be a new dynamic amongst the coaches as Shakira and Usher will taking over for Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green alongside Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.

“It’s bittersweet,” Aguilera told Celebuzz after Tuesday night’s live finale, which crowned Cassadee Pope as the Season 3 winner. “I’m not going to lie, watching the footage – the happy birthday wishes – the guys, we have a lot of fun and a lot of laughs and we bicker, we love each other like family, like brothers and sisters.”

“I’m going to miss him,” she said jokingly punching fellow coach Levine who walked the carpet with her. “He’ll miss me too. Nobody can bust his balls like me. “

Levine confirmed, “I’m going to miss it, I can’t lie, I’m going to miss it.”

Both coaches were extraordinarily happy to see Team Blake contestant Cassadee take the top spot on the reality show, beating out fellow Team Blake contestant Terry McDermott and Team Cee Lo contestant Nicholas David.

“Cassadee was amazing and we all saw her grow throughout the process of the show and it’s well deserved,” said Aguilera.

Aguilera will be taking a hiatus from The Voice to go on tour in support of her most recent album Lotus. Meanwhile, Levine and Maroon 5 will also be touring in the winter of 2013. So what can we expect from their respective tours?

“Awesomeness,” said Levine. “Double quote that,” Aguilera laughed.

Season 4 of The Voice premieres on Mar. 25, 2013 on NBC.
