Good Life be with ya’ll, Universe!
Writing (in steps, because this is gonna be frigging LONG!) enjoying some caressing Cali Sun (in the desert, in LA, and at airports if my ideas for chances to develop this post coherently actually will take place as planned), I am back at ya to wrap it up this masterful 2013.
Because it has indeed been QUITE a Year, don’t you think?
I know I know… I’ve been MIA most of the Year from these pages, and in fact I have written over this blog almost… never during the Year which is gonna end soon.
But I had warned you: time is not my blogging friend luxury anymore, and practically all that I find “bloggable” about myself comes finely through Twitter and Instagram anyway (hello, followers!), in such a fitting way I never feel like I lack other writing outlets.
I practically gave up on Tumblr too, for the time being, because it was just pointless to find time for it when those two accounts aforementioned sum up pics&words already, and very well.
I am aging, I am a 28 years old and to be frank is not like I believe blogging is such a cool thing anymore, with all the things that are going on with my life.
I would never take any time off from my life to find a space to blog these days, let’s put it this way.
Of course if our plans for a baby go well (K&I are testing waters a lot… and with pleasure and fun ;) ) this blog may just change its purpose and become something like THIS (courtesy of former Adam’s love Kelly McKee) ( without all the personal pics of course, because you know K&I abhor those fiercely), but for now it stays up just a s a space that I may fulfill just when I please to.
And this “when/if”, it’s clear by now, is a very rare moment in time.
But surely there have been tons of awesome occurrences in this blessed 2013 tho, something that I have put my writing onto already and profusely over Twitter and Instagram. In a rush, the firsts that come to mind have been:
1) Pope Francis’ everything existence;
2) Berlusconi’s condemnation;
3) my frigging perfect family life (this would well be the first position, but I am trying to learn how to be humble);
4) Traveling and discovering the Far East;
5) Working achievements;
6) Life long friends’ marriage(s);
7) Realizing I am far more blessed than I could have asked for;
8) The fact I keep marvel at so many things, thus my love for life only grows wider as I grow older.
9) My crew(s) which give me always the best love and support and which I couldn’t live without;
10) A lover who is my absolute best counterpart, and mirror, and everything (and THIS values like for ten spots multiplied by ten)
There Have also been not so great things around this Year of course, like:
1) Tragedies of entire Countries gone to waste due to economical and political struggles;
2) Notable deaths that have hurt my heart, soul and spirit;
3) Realizing I am starting to have to plan how to spend my energies better, because I am starting to feel less super charged than I used to (and believe me, it hurts my pride A LOT);
4) Understanding that being based both in Italy and USA sometimes is a huge task that causes family friction, and even tho nobody puts any pressure either on myself, or Karim, we have to get used to accommodate to many and many wishes, which reduces our completely free spare time (otherwise called: organizing maturity downsides), and that sometimes affects my mood, albeit not for long, or not too deeply.
5) This 2013 has been a truly sucky sporty year (Milan, Lakers… my dearest Kobe’s injuries… a friggin NIGHTMARE I tell you).
Well, at least still for the Year that is soon ending the pros outweighs the cons by a double size so it’s clear I have in fact no complaints about this 2013.
And I am practicing (the best I can) some true Zen approach to life so I can still focus only on the good anyway.
I look forward to a wondrous 2014 and I am SURE that will also bring the most expected family news (I know, I have not to be stubborn on this or it won’t come… but you get me… ;))
*feeling maternal a lot*.
So why I am here, if not only to wish everybody a “Happy End and Happy Start”?
Well, as we get ready to move from California to… The very beginning of the Earth (but down under) for New Years’ Eve celebration, I have to clear off like 800 and plus posts I have been getting for 6 months, and videos for more than 12 hours, which mirrored my music passion & related stuff since July of this now ending Year.
Yeah, basically I have come logging into on the blog to make a mega post encompassing all of this material so nobody of my freaky friends (they, not me) will give me hell because “ehi!!! I sent you material and you never published it! So long for being a good friend right?” type of extortion (yeah. I have grown up friends in my crew who STILL do and talk like this. ;)).
Many of the videos have actually been already published in the NAWWAL pages, but not all the mega video collages with pictures (and those are over 6 hours) and never many of Behati’s related videos actually, because NAWWAL focuse on Maroon5 and Adam and I try to keep the working of the guys separated from their private lives.
So let’s try to recollect memories linked to this side of my lovingly world once more (it’s a luxury I give you) and patch a kiss over my disappointed Maroon 5 adoring crew people (Marghe, Serena, Teo and Lea being the cheerleaders for this request).
Are you ready?
It’s gonna be REALLY long (I will try to keep it as synthetic as possible but 6 months can’t be really shortened that much).
My last post was about how happy and shocked (and HAPPYYYYYYYY!!!!) I was when the unexpected news of Adam and Behati engagement broke by the middle of July.
I still beam in joy recalling how it felt: I never thought anybody was as fitting as Bee to share his unique life, and the more these two show (better: the more they AVOID to show, like real couple must) about themselves, the more I feel Behati + Adam is THE ULTIMATE perfect couple match EVER in Hwood.
They are so much alike it’s incredible.
They are laid back, honest and true; they hate being posers, and they would NEVER change the way they intimately are for the sake of publicity or (yikes) to fakely please the “public” (public which honestly doesn’t even deserve them, as they ask just to be entertained by puppets, and Adam, as well as Behati, is the farthest thing I know from a biz puppy, hence the way he gets in trouble for voicing his strong liberal beliefs, or his strong molded visions about art and or music or anything else).
But you all know this already.
Will they last forever? Who knows… odds in Hwood are never in favor of the “forever” but one thing is for sure: if Adam, who has always believed he would never marry, has GOTTTEN BACK to Behati after trying to escape from her, it means FOR SURE he believes SHE IS THE ONE, and he will do anything he can to make this one his ONLY marriage; then Bee obviously feels he is the one too, because who else would have endured in letting him go and free to bang whoever, confident true love would have prevailed at last, and Adam would have gotten back to her, and with a proposal? Only true love makes these steps Adam and Behati took with one another.
And this for me is awesome, and just so romantic and amazing…
I adore A&B, and I just can’t wait for their perfect children to bless this world.
The true perfection will come as they will be parenting future world royalty.
And they will :)
Back to the memory trail now: take this first mash up video to recollect some piece first:
Adam and Behati news broke the outlets, causing commotions and the usual inaccurate reports (no, Adam didn’t break with anybody by text AT ALL… this is just some PR trying to exploit his status to make some not relevant people known through his name… a move we have already seen by many others, similarly sad losers).
The fact is that Adam instantly gives ANYBODY relevancy; so when you add to his status (massive by any standard, and destined to grow even more when he will add “movie actor” to the resume) to a Victoria’s Secret CERTIFIED Angel since 2009 – VS spokeperson since 2007 – what you get is a super sized Power Couple which any media outlet will try to exploit, in ANY Country, not merely the US.
Guess we have to get used to this, but what I love is that Adam and Behati keep being as reserved as possible, unlike many famewhores around, which I despise (and they despise too, hence their couple behavior) and whom I am so happy Adam never got back with, and never ever had any regret over.
I laughed endlessly about the fact as soon as the news broke of his engagements, the usual losers&haters of Behati stepped in claiming an array of absurdities, like:
1) she must be pregnant;
2) it’s a stunt;
3) he’s faking it;
and alter mean lies, ranging from the fact she would be a druggie, to the fact she blackmailed him into something he didn’t want (yeah… sure, lol).
Hilarious because the only reason OBVIOUS of the engagement in all of Adam’s entourage and family was CLEARLY love; and in fact, a HUGE, unmissable one.
He tried to move on: he failed because REAL LOVE only comes rarely and he was not stupid to let his soulmate go.
Adam has been in TONS of relationships, and has been with girls either for a few months, and then with some for 2 YEARS (Kelly, Rebecca, Anne all had him for multiple years, even if only Kelly and Rebecca actually spent that time with him, the latter of the list was almost never with Adam in those 21 months together, so it’s almost like only Kelly and Rebecca had Adam for yearly times anyway); and if he felt with Behati she was the one, so much he couldn’t avoid even to marry her, this speaks louder than any other thing.
As simple as that.
In fact, to get engaged for him is not even a good career move, because his following is also made by obsessive creepy middle aged stalker housewives who have little clues about his real personality and he would sell better to those boring types without being married – especially to some very hot slim and successful young model; so why he decided to do something which is not really his best PR option, even more considering Adam and Behati love to be COMPLETELY private about their life, to protect their well being and their real feelings from intrusive nobodies?
Simply: he did because HE LOVES BEHATI LIKE HE NEVER LOVED ANYBODY ELSE.
Only stupid people, clearly not bright, can think differently on the matter.
And they will keep on hating Behati, calling her the worst names, spreading the worst lies, all because they simply cannot accept a truth they refuse.
Adam and Behati care nothing about these losers anyway, and it’s rightly so.
Many strange and unreliable media outlet are also trying to put dirty on the new couple: but let me teach you something in this. Often career’s opponents feed the slimiest media with fake stories to damage the reputation of those they feel are getting threateningly successful: so mind you, many “strange” gossips are actually made up stories by people trying to derail people’s career (especially when said fake stories can never ever been really proved).
Basically anyone can spread a lie about someone successful, make it mildly “self evident” as to whom that looks to be referred about, and enjoy the plus of fake gossiping spreading, without the actual risk of being confronted (or sued) for it.
Adam had already to face fake gossips in times when he was only moderately famous, when he said he would sue a magazine claiming he offended Maria Sharapova calling her “dead frog in bed”, while he never said such things at all; the magazine retreated, but still to today nobody knows about the falsity of that statement, and only recall the first launch of the fake news.
Now that Adam is worldwide uber famous, his position is even more delicate; and his haters even more hard-weaponed in falsity against him, hoping to make some damage in his perfectly conducted career.
Behati is in the middle of this “popularity war” and supports her lover, by that taking herself also a very unfair share of fakers, losers, haters and lies on her shoulders.
There is a reason Adam hates Internet for most part, and the evilness of its worst connections: he doesn’t trust people and he doesn’t acknowledges them unless they are introduced by real friends of him; this is his nature… he’s kind of an overprotective snob, but he is because of a series of experiences and by his life background as a wealthy kid growing in LA.
Nothing is going to change him and he won’t fake either a proximity with strangers he just cannot bear.
Don’t expect him to get back being more active online anytime soon (in fact, expect a faster decrease as his family will grow larger): he doesn’t like nor respect any of the people who are aggressive and mean towards his beloved ones and Adam is a person who NEVER forgets and NEVER forgives, this is a very well known thing in Hwood, so there is no way he will get more social now that he knows people bad-mouth his adored fiancée daily.
He’s lucky that Bee shares his same views on the matter of lies and fakes and social media engagement, and that they give one another much strength.
There are lot of people who are envious of this couple because of their status, which multiplies since they have gotten back together.
I guess it’s also easier to hate instead of supporting because it takes someone brained to understand facts rather than simply dismiss them without accepting their impact and realness: but again they don’t care and also they are well aware of the meanies, and probably have fun at their backs anytime they check Behati’s Instagram or Twitter mentions (and Adam may not be social-media savvy, but Bee sure is, so for sure she has acknowledged those who hate on her, no matter if they are trying to hide their conversations from her – that never works).
There will be more later on about how amazingly tight and incredible is the bond between Adam and Bee; I love how she speaks through songs, I always have, and the interview she has given to Los Angeles Times about her This Here Very moment capsule collection confirms she is the perfect soulmate of musically inclined Adam.
She has given notes about Lykke Li’s song “I Follow Rivers” which speak volumes, VOLUMES about how in love she has always been with Adam, and how deeply she connects with his very complicated soul.
But more on this later… ;)
Of course Behati’s name got out more since they got engaged… but she is NEVER the one pushing for it; she can’t avoid people talk, but she never fuels it and never once she has used Adam (unlike others past abusers of him).
Their editorials, up until September publishing, like this Love Magazine one for instance, were ALL done while her and Adam were not together anymore:
I love her effortless coolness, never too much in the face, but always so clear and empowering.
She has this amazing allure about herself, and she truly has personality.
A rarity in beautiful people, especially those who grow up being told they are beautiful; she instead stays that lovely tomboy, and never let herself wander in the pretentious realm.
I love that about her so much :).
Haters started immediately to blab she got more campaigns out of Adam’s link: too bad her perfume pick was done by VS when they were BROKEN UP; all of her NEXT and Juicy campaigns also were shot when they were broken up: but haters are way too stupid to do the maths, or the reasoning about these things. They are far better at spitting nonsenseful hatred out of envy, because this is what losers do ;).
SURE they did. THEY did… not Behati.
They did what they always do with models they have on the roster who suddenly get paired with a real superstar: they put her on the front but her campaigns were given her BEFORE this, because you know, she models for them very successfully since 2007, and that has NOTHING to do with Adam.
Haters again are too stupid to understand this basic fact as well, but not anyone can have a brain ;).
Behati’s career has always been amazing WAY before Adam; she doesn’t sell herself constantly through social media because she’s not a famewhore and thinks social media serves for other purposes than not promoting herself annoyingly; but that doesn’t mean Behati is anything less than a REALLY SUCCESFUL and globally praised model, both HF and commercial (she can pull off anything with no effort; she’s just THAT cool).
Behati is a very successful girl since many years; her new media relevancy still hasn’t changed her one bit: she doesn’t believe the hype, and she’s so far away from others stuck up models she will never let this go to her head; most importantly, she will never SEEK for this kind of media feed: another reason Adam chose her as his wife for, I can bet about it.
Since Behati career is based mostly in New York, Adam and Behati have been starting searching for Soho apartments immediately as they got back together: a family life based on two coasts is something these two can afford (and mind you, Behati has more than 4 Million $ on her own from her modeling, so it’s not like only Adam could afford some fancy new digs).
Adam love is as true as the Sun; and in fact, I can’t wait for Maroon 5 new album to witness how it all went down between them: it fits that at first Fifth Album was meant to be dark (in SAJ way) because they started writing it on Tour at the start of 2013, when Adam and Behati broke up; it fits that then James revealed “later the mood of the album shifted”… because of course Adam got the love of his life BACK.
I can’t wait for the album honestly… it’s gonna be finally the album of LOVE ACCEPTED, a first in Maroon 5 career (and it could be a great way to end a chapter for them, too).
As I said, all of Maroon 5 crew, and Adam’s acolytes, were delighted about the engagement (and they pulled massively for it and for them to get back together for all of the time Adam parted with her, never giving any other of his temporary encounters, most notably model Nina Agdal, any attention or relation); his family was in it fully, too.
Because what’s not to love in Bee? She’s a lightening bolt of energy and love, and has one of the greatest personality ever. She’s blissful, that’s it.
This has also been a massive year of success for Maroon 5 as a band (you will see later on, they grossed by far their best tour EVER, capping a golden Year, even in the solar months when they actually were supposed to be “out of the map” as their album was growing older).
The Tour they partnered with Honda Civic has been HUGE.
You will read it later in Billboard but it was by far their best ever as I said; not only that… it was by far the tour where Adam looked and sounded THE HAPPIEST ever and guess why?
Behati and golf made Adam and Maroon 5 some happy touring campers (and you know Adam actually hates all the chaos which comes with touring… but once one is at his happiest in his private life, guess what you were used to hate becomes something you can easily love).
After all, as Billboard testified, Maroon 5 have by now a juggernaut status in music history, which is amazing for a pop band; 10 years and more of amazing success GROWING into their second decade is an astonishing achievement, and even if many dismiss them not knowing their craftsmanship in music, just because they have the bliss and the downside of being fronted by someone handsome (more talented than handsome, but the curse of beauty is always a bad trait with hipsters you know), the truth cannot be overlooked, and the Billboard HISTORIC Charts just proved any Maroon 5 fan RIGHT in their love for them, even middle Year in.
To be fully clear: Maroon 5 is not like any other pop band: they are by now American Music History. Certified. It makes me very proud, too :)
I can admit (it pains me but I have to) that a lot of this new wave of impressive success for Maroon 5 has to be credited to
that awful karaoke show that terrible excuse for a singing competition that unwatchable mess of a reality show The Voice (argh… I hate to write its name down) because it brought Adam up to MILLIONS of Americans who didn’t know how perfect he is previously; I still hope he detaches from it soon, but I can see if it’s in his hands, he won’t, because it’s making him ridiculously rich and popular and it has given him the resources to launch an array of other ventures, which are making him even richer, as well.
That is quite funny too: think about Adam’s Style, which is effortlessly personal and cool, since forever, and then translate it into affordable chain retailer line.
You will probably laugh BUT Adam Levine for KMart’s line has immediately been a HIT, and incredible one, with customers.
It is someway almost ironic, because Adam has always been snobish also in fashion, being the born rich kid he is (not in the sense that he only dresses in suits, but he only buys really pricey things, and even when they look simple, they cost a fortune); but his line has really great prices and still it maintains somehow his trademark laid-back imprinting.
It is also funny that his line is made for males, because Adam has a huge following of females (and gays, that too), but he is not exactly seen as a guys’ guy, unless you get to actually be part of his crew.
And, last but not least, the funniest and most ironic thing is that celebrities engaged in personal merch, shall be first and foremost ass-kissers of potential buyers (that values also for his perfume, of course); but Adam REALLY isn’t that type of celebrity.
He won’t fake ass-kiss nobody, he won’t make many meetings with buyers (only those he can’t avoid) and he for sure won’t ever avoid to voice his well-sided opinions, despite being at risk to alienate a huge trunk of buyers (read: rednecks republicans who he properly cannot stand).
I have been endlessly entertained these months by Adam’s complete lack of fake diplomacy, and actually i have admired him more and more for any tweet,, interview or blooper which was showing how much of a difficult-to-sell-fakely kind of celebrity he is.
And still… his lines are all hugely successful, especially when he is a non-solo pop male singer out of his teenage shell.
I find Adam’s exploits absolutely incredible, for real.
Oh, and he deserves all so much, because he’s such a hard, passionate worker.
And he, just like Maroon 5 as a whole, have always been VERY charitable and into good actions; but they are this way out of publicity, which makes them that much better in fact.
For all of their tour they helped kids and promoted valuable charities.
They also always promote new ways to get kids into music and art, and act towards this artistic push in words AND actions, and moreover they inspire kids towards art and music by connecting with them in person.
This also makes me very proud as a fan, and confirms my ways of appreciate them as people, even before than as very talented musicians and artists.
The Summer Tour was starting while Love Somebody became ANOTHER Top Ten hit out of Overexposed (4th single to achieve that consecutively out of their album, but if you count Moves Like Jagger run as well, and Stereo Hearts, it’s practically since Summer 2011 that ANYTHING Maroon 5 and Adam put out just get incredible success.
They never had a better run ever, and they even picked the wrong singles after One More Night! If they had paid better attention at the charts, Overexposed could have spanned a number 2 (Payphone) a Number One (One More Night) ANOTHER number one (Lucky Strike) and probably another number two in Love Somebody, which had the unfortunate position of being another ballad after Daylight (the sappiest song on Overexposed, which still, despite its lower quality, and the mess which was its video, managed to be also a Top Ten hit, which I was very skeptical about), and still it was the fourth consecutive multimillion single seller from the era, despite that.
During the Tour Adam showcased through Maroon 5 his protegée Rozzi Crane, the girl he created label 222 for (I am not that much of a fan: cute voice and nice energy on stage, but she’s really not that much to me, but that’s just me: always remember I also completely loathe The Voice and anything related, and I had to experience The Voice contestant already a few times while following Maroon 5 on Tour, and I never fell into those traps either ;)).
Even if I don’t really care for Rozzi at all, I am hoping she finds success just because Adam seems to really strive for this, and moreover because her success means HIS success as a label boss as well (but labels are not really a profitable venture anymore in Years 2K, Adam knows it, so I believe in creating 222 he’s just being generous as usual with the people he likes).
One of the things I loved the most about the tour were their pick for songs to cover.
Flawless taste, indeed.
Whenever the guys had a moment of spare time, Adam and his similarly obsessed mates would golf all around the Country, spanning some really nice looking stay, even if Adam still quite bad with irons ;) (but he’s so stubborn he won’t give up until he won’t reach what he wants to achieve there).
I like for sure that he’s making so many powerful friends while golfing tho: golf is a sport which will give him the connections he needs to develop even more once he will decide to start up the second phase of his biz career, out of the limelight of a stage (I don’t think it will take that much longer for it, you know).
Adam had also to reconcile his touring with his love for Breaking Bad (the series); I was actually thinking he would have dressed as Pinkman for Halloween, out of all his love for Cranston&Co, but I was wrong ;).
Some of the time “off” from the Summer tour was also dedicated to the taping of Adam’s Tv show (ewwww), which was at least at his home in LA, so more or less a not so stressful task for him in between gigs (hopefully, and then he was with Behati too then).
Behati was with Adam at any given moment in fact, but when she wasn’t following her beau and all of the guys (who all adore her, the same as all of Adam’s colleagues, since it’s clear how positive for him it’s her influence) all across USA, she was working her ass off, for Victoria’s Secret and not only.
I loved during those days her sweet tutorial about make up: she shines so lovely there, and she always appears for what she is, namely a simple girl with zero bad attitude and a really cool and refreshing approach to fashionably matters.
I love this about her so much.
Whenever it was possible to cut a small portion of spare time in the tour then, Behati and Adam would unite to enjoy luxury vacations and, also (wow, that’s so NOT hipster ;) but Behati before being a hipster is in love with her man) try to connect in together with golf (Bee is looking stunning in golf attire ;)).
Although they don’t like to publicize their love (which is a private fact) Adam and Behati are always cute with not intrusive fans also in their spare time, and if you are kind and not harass them, you will get something like THIS (I guess the stalker housewives who talk shit against Bee would fake their lives to be that near to Adam, and the woman they claim is “trash” “druggie” “ugly” “without class” and so on in their funny Twitter rants against her. I just wonder: the husbands of said housewives never give them some good dick, so that they keep dreaming about a dick they could never have, being Adam’s taste into fit slender supermodels and not overweight wrinkled old witches?)
Their favorite places to enjoy small spare times in tour?
Even when back in Los Angeles, they swiftly passed at the chances of being pap snapped, never offering anything more than a low head, because people not in their world just have no rights to share their light (beside, often gossip rag are so stupid and misinformed what was their RETURN to LA after the Los Cabos lil holiday was written as if they were flying FROM LA to some buen retiro… not that gossip magazines have ever been reliable anyway, but at least date checking before writing could be good ;)).
During Summer, the last of Behati’s amazing spreads came out: it was a GQ Mexico cover feature and her feline beauty, so mesmerizing and fiercely animalistic was shining in all sexyness:
Her impeccable physique and adorable personality also shone in the video out of the backstage for this.
When at the middle of August Adam and Behati came back to LA from Los Cabos, they could spend two days in sunny Cali home… and what did they do then (beside having to attend
The Fuckery The Voice taping , where they probably snapped the picture Behati would later publish of Adam running naked in his boxer briefs, and where they kept making out without camera rolling at any given moment)?
Adam tweeted a very hilarious thing from Brian’s store, too (well of course he always has sex in mind whenever with Bee… who wouldn’t ;)).
I simply melted when it was clear they did.
I felt so much of their love going on I was like blinded by the Sun due to it.
You have to understand all of the hidden meaning of this, but Adam and Behati permanently inked (in each other’s calligraphy) a sentence out from Behati’s favorite movie, “True Romance“ (which movie choice ALSO tells so much about how passionately they love one another, too):
The tattoo they have (Adam on the inner side of his most naked arm, and Behati on the side of her bust, in a position which makes easier for a bra to cover it) reads:
“You’re so cool, You’re so cool, You’re so cool”.
And if you learn about True Romance movie, you will get the power and importance of what Adam and Bee did by inking this to their bodies.
It sounds more of an eternal promise than even the $ 385,000 diamond he put on her ring finger.
I find all this so touching, and again, Adam and Behati are just SO connected on so many levels it’s so wonderful they found one another AND, even more wonderful, Behati was there with her love and patience and heart and spirit to save him even from himself, and even though he tried to escape his salvation (Adam has a tendency to self destruction, or his favorite Ninja Turtle wouldn’t be Rapahel, as himself stated two years ago ;)).
It is such a bliss when True Love wins :)
Around that time news came out that Behati was selected (after Daria Werbowy and Gisele Bundchen before her) to be the face of Italian Wool Brand STEFANEL Fall Winter campaign.
I was happy because that meant I was ready to see her beautiful face all over Italy (which I did).
And of course once again this campaign was a success she had on her own, as she was shooting all this exactly in the months of her break up from Adam (some of the locations were then clear which she instagrammed around April).
I love the video of the backstage so hard:
Behati moved to be on the road with Adam some more, and the lovely thing was that she was NEVER trying to steal his spotlight (the way a girlfriend in love does) but he acknowledged her EVERY night she was with him, by singing passionately to her his songs, which now have a real meaning because he has finally found true love in her.
I pity those poor minds who cannot reckon how huge is the love these two have for one another, and I condemn whoever is trying to put dirt on them, and her especially.
Behati is an Angel for real: she saved Adam with the power of her incredible love.
One of the tasks Maroon 5 highly successful Summer Tour (read please this excerpt from BillBoard and get into Maroon 5 tour magic) had in store for Adam was the fact he had to carefully pinpoint all dates to wrap around all of his other commitments: the launch of the KMart line, which switched, and also, of course, the fact his first movie, Can A song Save Your Life? was premiering in Toronto at TIFF (which caused one of the tour dates to change, to allow him to fly in Canada for it).
More on that (the movie) later on.
Before noticing this though, we have to update the list of Adam Levine’s biz ventures with one more notch on his belt: producer (for real this time) of comedies (based on himself, mind you… that is a true sign of being A list).
I also love that he extends his wealth and fame and opportunities to those who have shared his life for real, in this case Gene.
I can see Adam in this position until his grandpas days, and after all a tv producer is what his grandfather is, so it’s in his blood anyway.
Even though music is such a solid spot for Maroon 5 now, I don’t see Adam being a touring full on musician when he will be 40… I sense he won’t (though he could be as long as he likes to).
It tells how much of a good boy he is that those who were there for him when he was not known are still loving him now that he is a superstar in multiple fields.
Adam joy was so evident on tour and I am happy there is not a single aspect of his life since he got with Bee which isn’t pretty perfect; I also love how they are so touchy and intimate whenever together, but they never publicize that at all, so you can know that only if you are sharing live spaces with them (and you can be blinded by their passionate bond).
At the end of August Behati blessed us all by sharing a picture which became easily viral, which I suppose she took while attending the Voice taping a few days earlier than the date of the actual Instagram post.
She posted it before having to fly away from him for working duties, like she wanted to cap the time together in a festive way, and was so kind she wanted us all to be part of it (either that, or Adam lost a bet – they play a lot of those from what I have learned – and she had her winning to be celebrated through mockery, which is also so much A&B in my book) .
The picture is this, and the caption is almost as iconic as the image (they are two goofballs full of love, and I like it):
He could really rival her in underwear modeling after all ;) and apparently Kelly Clarkson agreed, too.
I love how fashion magazines had to republish this as well; it’s a smart move, because an icon sells and Adam is undoubtedly an icon by now (poor haters will eat their livers on this fact as well ;)).
This post also got the envious witches even more envious, but again, is not like Bee cares so good venom to them… one they they might choke out of it all, and that’d be actually right.
That day I began to notice how People Magazine was starting to be REALLY up-on-date with anything Adam related; they finally created a page on him (a personal one) and they also made an article out of Bee’s post.
I saw later on, at the time of Sexiest Man Alive material publishing, than those were the days when they probably decided Adam would be their SMA (and maybe the feedback off Behati’s post had something to do with their decision).
This means… endless coverage in the future of ANYTHING Adam and Behati will like to see published in their pages (well, maybe less naked-y… but who knows ;)).
Guaranteed (that’s a Power Couple prerogative, if you please).
After all, it was about time People realized Adam’s status and certified it in stone for the incoming ages (I mean, people even create cocktails out of his name!).
He makes millions and millions out of multiple endeavors each year; he’s someone anyone craves to be in the presence of; he is classically beautiful, he is multi talented, and he is also a very hard, hard worker (that is a surprise for himself first in some ways); he never stops, and still is able to not sell his private life for fame (in this, people who are with him are helpful too).
His future children will have a father they will be very proud of.
And I don’t think we will wait too long for said children ;).
As Behati was flying back to New York for work (while Adam was playing golf in Connecticut with his former The Voice winner Javier Colon), her amazing pictorial for Interview Magazine (The Goddesses feature I posted already above) came out: so much sexy there, and she does look like Kate Moss so much there… I fell in love immediately like many other times with her, because her nudity is so chaste and still so powerful; she is so classy even naked because she isn’t a try hard and has never those fake faces models put whenever undressed.
She is amazingly unique, and constantly praised for her personal style by the apt sources (see, VOGUE).
But what was Behati called for that she had to fly back to New York so fast?
A future VOGUE MEXICO cover.
And also her incoming THVM capsule collection.
As usual she sounded in her – never too revealing – Instagram hints so humble and grateful and so cute towards anybody helping her realizing her dreams…
she is so lovely in her works; she always expresses gratitude and is never ever self-entitled.
I admire her way to be so much, I always say this like a loop but it’s truly so different from usual paths models take, I always get astonished by her.
By the start of September though, Behati was again by Adam’s side, and they as usual were always kind and adorable with their fans.
You can feel when Behati and Adam are together also from the silly-ness of his tweets, which are rare, but always happy and absurd when he is with Bee (I bet they laugh all the time).
Before going on with September though, let’s recap August better with this mash up video:
The Mercer Hotel was also the location of Adam’s interviews about the KMart line which was set to launch definitively on October 1st (to not interfere too much with the tour).
Good partner he chose to collaborate with, too.
Another thing that caught my eye then, and even more NOW: at the time of the presentation of his line for Kmart, Adam said his style icon is BATMAN… and well, later on, we would know the symbol of Behati’s line (which she made BEFORE Adam’s one) is a fruit bat, because she is OBSESSED with bats.
Absolutely NOT, I can bet on it. ;)
Once again at night they went out and as usual they were super nice with their encounters, but always attached to one another like glue, too (awwww real love).
If this isn’t a perfect down to Earth girl I don’t know what down-to Earth is.
Not that when she goes full-on model goddess she fails, either: just take a look at the stunning editorial for the cover of Vogue Japan BEAUTY feature Behati was the star of in September, and let your jaw drop (talking about jaws, her own one is so perfect and beautiful… her face is a wonder).:
Behati and Adam New York times are always enjoyable it appears; given that Behati has to remain work-based in New York, I am sure the couple will enjoy their times in the Big Apple whenever they will occur, as they are doing since they gotten engaged, all the time.
The tour was starting again after the NY break and Behati had the chance to spend some lil time with her partner in crime (the crime being to be the lady loves of Maroon 5 band members) Ali Tamposi, James’ adorable other half.
The two are simply great together, and Ali has been the greatest supporter of Bee when she was away from Adam (with James) so I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s gonna be a bridesmaid during their marriage :)
That night, Adam serenaded Bee again openly during Love Somebody (aww so cute).
Immediately after, Adam flew to Toronto for the Film Festival.
By the time of its first ever screening, Can A song Save Your Life was still without a distribution deal.
Toronto was exactly the showcase it needed to span a bidding war on itself and the movie not only was a major hit, but it was THE BEST SUCCESS of them all, sparkling a wonderous bidding war won by Harvey Weinstein (AKA most powerful distributor in Hwood).
The movie is considered to be such a great assured hit, many were thinking Weinstein Company would make it out on the halls immediately after TIFF; but since Harvey Weinstein TRULY wants to promote it (read: he thinks it can be a contender for Oscars) he will wait till Spring 2014, so that it won’t be overrun by movies already established this year or so that it couldn’t ruin with its power other candidates at academy Harvey has THIS Year.
What is the sum up for all this?
Adam Levine is gonna add a major movie hit to his already well impressive curriculum; given that Can a Song… is a musical movie, I can already see the chance for an Oscar nomination in the field of music, at least.
Harvey knows what he has in his hands, and the fact in Toronto he and Adam were profusely speaking can only mean one thing: Adam has now a supporter which is BEYOND powerful.
I still convinced People Magazine’s push about Adam being the Sexiest Man Alive has A LOT to do with Mr. Weinstein’s future plans about his movie career.
And if any, that’s a GREAT move on his part because Adam has that silver screen cut beauty nobody in Weinstein’s position could overlook.
I also love the pairing with Keira: she has a timeless beauty quality to her own and I am a fan since Bend It like Beckham so… it couldn’t be any better for my fan heart than all Can A song… is gonna provide me in terms of satisfaction ;).
And the future Missus Levine, what was she doing while her lover was starting his moves to become a certified actor?
Behati can be so wonderful in high fashion; I know Victoria’s Secret has made her rich, because it’s the best contract in modeling commercially speaking; but I miss her HF outings because she has just the height, the frame, the grace and walking personality for HF, more than anything else.
But her pretentious-free attitude probably makes her not really miss high fashion that much; and after all some selected things are better than too many runaways (gives her more time for her future hubby’s needs :)).
Hubby-to-be has in fact so many things to think about his lovely half MUST be the one less occupied or he would collapse; Behati luckily understands this, also because she LOVES HIM FOR REAL and not for need of a publicity spot, so she can support him first by being by his side whenever she can.
Adam is in fact VERY blessed, because also his bandmates are sincere friends and since Behati couldn’t be with him in Toronto due to her duties (VOGUE shot and NYFW), Mickey and James flew in Canada to support their man in her place.
They’re like brothers indeed, and I bet they are excited to see how the acting bug will end to catch up on Adam.
By the middle of the month of September, and in the middle of the mega Honda Civic Tour, Maroon 5 had also the iHeart Music Festival duty; no rest for the best, I guess ;), and no hyper successful tour ever comes in terms with no effort, right?
The secret is touring with people you admire and whom admire you equally and Kelly on this was an amazing partner for Maroon 5, for sure.
Well some rest came out in golfing terms always anyways, and briefly in Tampa Adam had still Bee by his side (she flew in as soon as possible from New York… the sweet commitment!); but soon she had to fly over Europe, as it was time to shoot the Xmas commercial for Victoria’s Secret in PARIS and after that the Swim Collection snaps in St. Tropez (this year it seems any place I went to, Bee went there as well, with or without Adam, just a lil after me ;)).
She flew away to Paris just when Adam stopped in Savannah Buffett’s realm (Miami!) and I guess to honor his fiancée he wore what is meaningful to them even in her absence (as smartly noted exactly by Savannah).
Those days he filmed the People Magazine sexiest Man Alive short videos (I post them here so you can reckon the location), which may as well be Savvy’s place).
Take a look:
And to this one too:
These videos were totally made those days in Miami.
Harvey knows what Adam can achieve in movie goodness :)
He just needs training… because Nature has provided Adam with all possible other qualities: talents, vision, and beauty.
And beauty is also what Adam gathers to himself; like his perfectly beautiful fiancée, who was up in mood and adorable even freezing herself in panties and feathered wings on Parisian nights, shooting like a super pro.
Paris after all is the town of Love and Beauty and Behati is all of those things for sure; a rocking Beauty she is.
As September was rolling and going on, I caught the news that Maroon 5 had signed an exclusive Administration Deal with Kobalt Publishing; it’s a smart biz move, because Kobalt is a rampant company in the biz, which benefits especially established worldwide acts; after all Adam had reached all he could with BMI with his award this past Spring and it was time Maroon 5 all reunited under a single Publishing deal (previously Adam and Jesse were under BMI and James was an ASCAP member).
In the Year End number of Billboard that I will put up later on it’s clear this move is all about a smarter executive administration of Maroon 5 royalties worldwide (and Adam is very careful and intelligent when it comes to money, and knows what to choose to expand his portfolio).
But as biz savvy as he is, Adam also cannot avoid to voice his real persona despite the fact this could cause his “image” some squats… so after he voiced his (totally right) appreciation for Pope Francis those days (and of course he loves him, this Pope is BEST!!!!), and after he got to share space with someone he really admires, he couldn’t avoid to voice out his distaste for impersonators in music/art/life…
They were at iHeart radio Music Festival, and while there were MANY performers there, it seems someone really didn’t impress Adam much…
Now please notice just one thing: NOBODY can say Adam was directing this at Lady Gaga.
He has actually always expressed praise towards her openly in interviews (see OUT Magazine, twice) and the only time he said something not really fine on her was when he compared Born This Way to Express Yourself (which he was totally RIGHT about).
But that one time he made his tweet direct.
This time what he said could have applied to at least ten performers he probably had to witness at iHeart Festival.
Of course after he got insults thrown, Adam just said (quoting Shakespeare) that all that fuss was really not a cool thing, and that maybe somebody was making a big deal out of nothing.
He also stated that, since all of Gaga’s troopers complaints were based on “Art” (not that Gaga’s latest album is even remotely art… it’s more or less garbage, in fact) and the fact she was art and he was trash, he doesn’t strive for art at all, nor puts himself on any art pedestal.
He got this peculiar vision where what he does (pop music) is not at a level of greatness to be compared to art and in this he is actually valuing ART way more than the screechers troopers of Gaga are doing.
Adam is actually very humble regarding what he does; but by nature he won’t ever accept the insane and absurd hate he got by leechers while he was probably not even talking about Gaga in the first place.
Then he has a very peculiar humorist take at life not everyone gets (but it’s their limit and Adam’s greatness).
But whatever; they would meet at The Voice finale in December, proving that in fact Gaga was in need of Adam’s thunder while Adam couldn’t care less about her (oh, and The Karaoke Show also won an Emmy… a thing that American Idol never achieved…wow, I don’t know if it’s worthy celebrate this? Naw ;))
It’s also to be noted that anytime right now Maroon 5 have a special private performance that they could randomize in any location… somehow this location ALWAYS came up to be New york.
I don’t really think it’s a casual event… I am more driven to think Adam wants to accommodate Behati’s schedule with his and I find this amazingly sweet.
The tour was progressing and the grand Finale was approaching and The Voice was starting on screens, meaning more exposure for Adam and therefore to Behati; it was also clear both were starting to find acceptable to speak in interviews about their engagement, albeit always in not exaggerated amount.
It also meant that the newsfeeds would constantly link all things Behati did to Adam; somehow messing up with times, like when they started to say she followed in her fiancée fashion ventures with THVM campaign while in fact she was the one doing that first.
Or when they mentioned her being “Adam’s fiancèe” all over the report she was getting FOUR version of ELLE ITALIA cover in October (out in September), while all those pictures were shot in April, while she and Adam were broken up and he was linked with Nina Agdal (some major Instagram memories, there):
But by now we know Behati has a (un)fair share of haters who cannot even see how wrong about her they are when put in front of evidences.
Let’s move on ;)
Anyway, I am glad at least one of Maroon 5 special gigs was in San Francisco Area ;), because that gig was AWESOME and I can tell it well because you know, I know ;)
And by then Lovely Bee was already where she belongs, and happy about it.
Also Adam was very happy… so happy he did a couple of things: first he said this thing about crooked teeth and you can see who has unperfect ones…
As I said before you can tell when Behati is with him because he becomes so happy and stupid and kid-like… they are so in love it’s so natural for him to lay all barriers down, also because she shares his way of being too.
So they went golfing in the mountain storms, they went buying Nike together, and they just acted all lovey as much as possible, and so happy were they not even a sudden gig cancellation could dumper their shining mood.
Oh, and I have been asked to post this: Look how Hollywood people are regarding their reciprocal HEIGHT (ps: Adam and Bee are exactly the same height, 5’11’ 1/5, and this means whenever Behati wears heels, she’s gonna be taller than Adam: a wedding in flip flops? Hawaii wouldn’t mind ;))
And while Overexposed was crossing the 1,500,000 copies mark in USA (amazing achievement), they kept their tour going while keeping being adorable.
This tour surely marks a milestone in Maroon 5 career (I had the clear feeling of it already before this fact being testified just the other day by Billboard Magazine).
It’s also majorly deserved by the guys.
Then as a decade plus longer fan of them I am happy to see the guys on their ways to complete settle down; make their families soon, and having the bliss of seeing their significant others ALSO getting along.
I loved to see while free in LA those days before the final dates of the Honda Tour, Bee and Adam went double dating with Jimmy V and Ali.
Evidence of this in this TMZ video (click).
This is simply precious.
And Adam is extremely linked to his people so he could have married only someone perfectly fitting in with ALL of his beloved ones. Behati is this kind of person, and that is why everybody is happy they are gonna marry soon.
And while I do believe their marriage will take place in February 2014, I never believed they were going to have TWO weddings, as many outlets started to erroneously report (Bee denied this in an interview I will post later on On Air With Ryan Seacrest (RADIO).
To recollect all of September, take this other super mash up video (and a link to funny mean tweets feature):
October came and so it did the grand opening of KMart’s collection (Jesse went to support his friend… how cute is that? and how I cannot wait for Jesse to be back with the band, as well? Fifth album will be perfect… PERFECT!).
The collection as I said is really nice, ESPECIALLY if you think it’s Kmart.
Before the final dates in Hollywood Bowl, Adam and Bee had more chances to be adorable; then THE date came and all family gathered and you could see the LOVE all family has for Behati, pretty clearly (even tho I don’t like this particular family member praising her here…); once again Behati was gracious and never stole any spotlight unless requested.
I personally loved the gig(s) I witnessed in this tour a lot; I still ROYALLY PISSED all that Maroon 5 do is to put Europe in the back and disrespect European fans at any time our poor Continent crosses with anything The Voice related, but I guess I can’t argue since they are so successful now, and were capping this year the 18th most successful tour WORLDWIDE (and this WITHOUT Europe!).
I love when they play live… that’s it!
After the mega days, Behati flew back to New York to do some work… but also because something HUGE was bound to happen.
At the same time, it took just Bee being parted from him and Adam went all nostalgic and romantically lost again (they were skyping then, I could guess ;)).
But Behati would soon return by Adam’s side, and with some VERY WELCOMED company: HER PARENTS, arrived from Africa to meet the Levines in Los Angeles (via New York).
I can’t tell you how happy I was when Behati tweeted that ;)
Too bad Adam had to endure paps on his ways to dine with such important people in his life (see his face whenever paps try to interfere with his precious real life: if he could fire lasers from eyes to them, he would!).
At lest tho we know from Behati’s father Facebook all meeting went great; we saw actually the future home Bee and Adam will share in total renovation (that’s the property Adam bought back in Bev Hills code zone in Benedict Canyon, which is being completely remade by Mark Haddawy while he is renting another house in Encino he currently lives in), with Charlie and Bones all happy around their owners, too.
It’s so wonderful that the meeting was a pure sparkle of intense love and everybody loved one another!!
Behati has already said her parents will come again for a month or so in Between January AND February (EHM: what could that long stay hint at ;)? it’s clear to me…) and that they are all ecstatic about Adam (what’s not to adore about him); then that Behati is loved by Adam’s family is well clear out of the personal praise everybody in Adam’s camp has for her (she even acts big sister with sam in the cutest way, patronizing his little lover, Luna like a perfect real sister would do).
You will see some of the pics I desribed here in the next mash up video for October and November…
Now let’s move and talk about Behati VOGUE MEXICO cover, which came out in October (for the November issue).
One word: STUNNING.
Look at this video, thanx :)
She is so pure and great… and she TRULY rocks :).
I wonder what Behati will make her and Adam’s kids watch when they will be there.
I mean… what do you tell your kids when your father has a cartoon version of himself in Family Guy?
I bet it’s gonna be a cool moment in their family, that one ;).
Adam talked about his future as a family man on Jay Leno, where he also revealed what we knew: that he didn’t believe in marriage, UNTIL Behati came and made him a marriage believer.
Only a true lover could change his bachelor status; only a TRUE LOVE could mold him into a family man.
This is real love, let’s just face it :)
And about his ventures?
Since his private life is so perfect, you could expect Destiny got brakes on in other sides but.. no way: Adam’s life and touch is just unbeatable; so much that his line at Kmart sold like hot cakes immediately.
Basically, his KMart line outsold anything else, surprising everybody (but him, because Adam is a cocky winner ;)).
And what you do when a celebrity who is supposedly better selling to females make a super splash in a male targeted biz?
I don’t know if Behati is for real going to help him with that, but he will surely get inspired by her flawless style, that is a given!
Not that Adam ever lacked money… but I guess also his nephews will ever hardly need to worry about that in the future ;).
By the way, it was coming Adam and Behati’s favorite holiday (even tho Bee later said that right now Thanksgiving is her favorite, now I guess that she has a real family also in the USA), namely HALLOWEEN!!!!
This year, The Hollywood Forever Cemetery couldn’t be used by Maroon 5 for what is the IT party on the West Coast among celebrities; that because there was a special event two days before and the Cemetery couldn’t be set in time for Adam and Maroon5 grand plans.
No problem: they rented an entire hotel and recreated THE OVERLOOK Hotel (and you know which one is my fav movie, right? EXACTLY ;)) at The SportsLodge up Los Angeles Drive.
The location made the guest list smaller than usual (the size was smaller compared to the Cemetery) so less pictures came from drooling guests and Adam forbid the press from the inside (ah, the privacy holder!).
Adam had declared at Leno he and Behati (and we saw, also James and Ali) would have gotten into Eyes Wide Shut characters; and they did in spectacular fashion, from head to toe (thanx to the masks creators at Creature Effects, which is a company which works for Hollywood Movie Productions ;)… peons to the left, please).
Halloween marked the official presentation of new Mickey’s girlfriend, style blogger and personality Niki Takesh (they went as Britney and Justin in the infamous full jeans MTV Awards matching outfits… too funny!).
Not that Maroon 5 are only about fun, guys… they also promote good activity for kids and education and they do something about that at least every two months (take note, okay?).
It was then time of panties and feathers, otherwise known as The Annual Victoria’s secret fashion show (i.e: the reason models would like to kill one another each year to steal at least a spot in the most watched worldwide fashion related event).
After Halloween, The Voice was about to go live, and since the show is on Monday and Tuesday and the Victoria’s secret Fashion Show was going to be taped on a Wednesday, I was thinking Adam couldn’t have made it in time.
I was skeptical he could squeeze it all into a presence for the feisty catwalk, also because Maroon 5 were having the private Malibu Event in the Big Apple on Saturday and I thought schedule was just too tight.
Adam also found a way to honor Behati while filming the Voice: in a lovely little excerpt he presented to the world little Charlie, their new golden retriever which is the companion they chose for Bones (aka the dog muppet).
I still consider the picture of Bee in the patio of their house cuddling minuscule Charlie baby and showing her ring the most beautiful personal picture she has ever shared (and that was taken by Adam, I am sure of it like I am of nothing else… almost ;))-
During the after party (and you will see their joyful glow in the pictures from the mash up videos) Adam let Behati shine, and imitating her, he never stole her spotlight on red carpets (he knows she has a stature on her own and doesn’t need him to have snappers interested in her, she’s an Angel after all), and then Bee and Adam tho spent the night at the party making out, as witnesses noted (they always are doing that whenever together).
I will post here only the first reaction to the taping of the show, because the whole show I will post later while we talk about December; but of course Adam’s presence made Behati the star of the show (he could make a nobody relevant in two shows for VS, imagine what he can do now when showing up to cheer her REAL VS ANGEL fiancée… it’s a news dream made fashionably loud statement).
I am sorry for any Behati hater (no, I am not, I am amused at their demise): what you have now is a power Couple and unless Leo Di Caprio marries Candice Swanepoel next year, there is no way Behati won’t be the star of VS in 2014: live with it, and enjoy the effortless ride.
She achieved all she has on her own, she has walked with this 7 years for VS, and she was made an Angel in 2009, but now that Adam actually wants to show her his support, she is already superstardom certified and nobody can make a thing against this.
Everything she is gonna do will make People’s headlines; and just for good measure: Adam and Behati have now a relevance Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom only could dream of when they started to be a couple.
Take a look at some of the previews of the show which came out immediately after it got taped.
Therefore put everything in proportioned foresight, and enjoy the Behati’s takeover (haters can’t fight this although they will surely try, making it all even sweeter for Behati in the end).
No need to argue; resistance of the lessors is futile ;), but entertain us if you please with your so misplaced gratuitous hatred…
And talking about misplaced hatred, Adam got his fair share too, and for a series of reason which are actually VERY POLITICAL.
Let’s go in line.
Just around VSFS, Adam started to be mentioned by relevant outlets as the next People Magazine “Sexiest Man Alive”.
I immediately thought “Finally!”, and then I realized that would have been a really big change in the way People usually shapes its list: then, as I wrote above, I started also to picture Harvey Weinstein plans to sell Adam WORLDWIDE for his movie.
And everything made sense (for instance all International sites lauded at Adam’s pick, because they are not prejudicially against a liberal getting this, being out of USA political spectrum of motions).
The SMA honor is indeed the most important People Cover of the Year; it makes whoever gets it a staple in relevance all over the world, and that is so true, right now EVERYWHERE (Italy included of course) any kind of important magazine will mention Adam with that title aside, like he’s a Knight now or something.
While Adam was in New York post VSFS and before his Malibu Rum special Event with Maroon 5 he had a series of shows he was slated to attend; they were all cute things, and he was lovely talking about Behati and the VS show, but you could see him being defensive about SMA honor (in fact he knew he was since that famous Miami date of Maroon 5 tour, we saw it above).
and then here (so cute interview!):
During these interviews Behati was with him and you can see her staying lovingly behind Adam carrying a labrador puppy in many ways so reminiscent of their little Charlie.
I can see Adam holding their incoming baby (2015 after Behati’s 2014 Fantasy bra? I can picture this easily) so well everytime I see how he holds puppies with that adoring gaze :)
The guys were followed in their NY outings (still trying to find their happy place in the Big Apple, (which was awesome as reviewed by Billboard) always looking effortless cool when together, and always so affectionate and in synch), and by now people are starting to get used to them as “Romeo and Juliet” like:
Then it was confirmed: Adam was People’s Sexiest Man Alive.
And while balanced people didn’t see anything strange with this (it was two years, since he got so popular thanks to The Voice, that people actually were throwing his name out for the honor, unsatisfied with anyone not named Ryan Gosling to get it, so it was not THAT out of the blue), some sites really vented out against his election, in really catty and completely wrong ways.
But I guess proto feminist sites where women claim men are pigs, but then they behave exactly like pig women, aren’t exactly the places we should look upon to (right Jezebel?): it’s also funny that said “site” while spanning hate towards Adam had its best click-throught just by mentioning him, resulting in them hilariously re-putting up the same news in days after, just to obtain that increase in their shrinking readership. Good luck in five years, girls: you’ll be gone and Adam will still hot, relevant and rich ;)
Then there are the sites which are PURPOSELY against Adam anyway, which have ALL a connection with the FOX News property (Jezebel is part of that galaxy as well actually, as they are New York Daily News and satellites such as Page six, and so on… all those sites are paid by REPUBLICANS and they promote a take on their “news” which has as a ultimate purpose the one to diminish the impact of openly liberal celebrities towards their public).
Those sites IMMEDIATELY started a campaign of defamation regarding Adam and how fitting he was to be crowned sexiest Man Alive.
Because Adam is dangerous for them: he voices openly his liberal views, and he is an open Obama supporter (in fact days ago he became one of the face for Obama care push in California); he is never shy to voice his opinion and his opinion MATTERS to the youth, so whoever is Republican oriented MUST destroy Adam’s credibility and popularity when it risks to overflow (and now he is at a peak for sure), molding the youth towards something Republicans don’t want.
It’s simple as that: some people MUST hate on Adam because they actually reckon his power in society (and here we could debate why celebrities are this relevant in societies, but I won’t dwell there as it would be useless).
Not that Adam cares if ordals of retarded rednecks (funny enough, all the fat housewives hating on Behati are rednecks… and so far away from anything Adam would appreciate also humanly as possible… coincidence? NOT. They are scum and of course scum hate on Behati… you hate what you cannot understand or imitate, right?) mock him: he has proved he will keep fighting and voicing the things he believes in and let’s face it, he is a NATURAL progressive Democrat.
It’s his core and I can’t see how people so into red-neckness can like someone so far away from their crooked beliefs; I have long time ago realized they actually don’t like “Adam”: they lust after him, but don’t get a thing of his amazing personality at all, whatever they claim to be doing instead.
But back at The People SMA Gate: of course any choice is subjective, and if you’re not Ryan Gosling you will be criticized for it, but Adam is in everything a fitting pick for this, unless you are blinded by his dislike in not intelligent ways (have you noticed the sites claiming he is “slimey” rely on things he actually never did – leaving girls by text is a thing he has never done – or put on the table things he did or do when he was way younger and prone to make stupid things? I did, and this of course proves just how much the haters don’t have a clue on him, especially they don’t about the one he has become in the past few years, namely a great man in all).
But haters can try to diminish his status as much as they like: the fact is that Adam is not only wildly popular, he is also WILDLY LOVED.
Then as I said this cover marks so many other potential steps in anyone career, and it’s clear whoever gets it, especially a non-actor, immediately is perceived as a menace to those who are maybe waiting to being named just to be able to ask through their agents a higher paycheck for the projects they are involved with, and this can lead to attacks.
Jimmy Kimmel docet:
Hear him talk On Air with Ryan here:
He is also somebody who has already achieved so much in what HE excels at, namely music, he can be very satisfied with who he is, screw haters, thank you.
Won’t happen, and this is why he and Behati are a perfect match: the same goes for her: she is carefree, humorous and down-to earth, so much she could LAUGH about Adam being SMA.
Behati went home in LA a day before Adam, because she had some working to be done there; she also celebrated her bestie Ali’s birthday in loving way.
In the main time, another special private show for Maroon 5was scheduled IN NEW YORK on January 31st (I guess Bee parents will be there too by then…), and while The Voice was still running, the opinions on Adam’s BIG day started to be a normal question in interviews for everyone related to him.
This note by The Voice host also explains what I meant when at the beginning of this recap I said the fact Adam got engaged was in many ways something he shouldn’t have done career wise, but if he did it means he REALLY wants to be with Behati forever.
Behati went to St. Barths to shoot for VS and she offered us flawless beauty and a clear view of her tattoo on the beach.
Look at her.. she’s always so luminous and happy…
Behati got back in LA in time to celebrate Thanksgiving with Adam and his family, which is now also HER family; this Year no picture were slid out by no family members and I am happy this didn’t happen because it’s fair Bee and Adam let their private life stay… PRIVATE.
Some glimpse we got were actually by Behati herself but as usual all those were just very discreet and VERY goofy (like they are).
With December starting, the Year was about to get capped.
This is the time when practically all the Year End list come out; but before we get into details, let’s recap in a lil mish mash video what did happen in October and November, won’t we?
December first got immediately a good news: Criminal Ali Kavoussi, I.E. the one who has milked Adam’s fame to the maximum at any given chance, trying through him and his name to give relevancy to a couple of famewhores, has finally left Women NY Agency, leaving Behati free.
This is a wonderful news, so that we won’t see anymore him trying to milk her (and him) no more.
Further evidence that he is a dirty opportunist?
He made a shot he realized with Behati back when she was Adam free available for 7 Hollywood Magazine guess when? Just when her name, linked to Adam, was starting to become one of the most relevant in all media (after the VSFS).
This is the tacky shot (Behati still beautiful, but I despise that man so much I can’t fully appreciate anything that comes with his name onto; Adam hates him and he’s SO right in doing it):
December started then and Adam went to The Ellen Degeneres Show (I always love him there, because Ellen loves him dearly, like Kurt Sutter as well):
The interview was so adorable… I can so well picture Adam’s trials to Use Bee’s fingers to play a game (LOL), and in all this is so intimate and comfy... they are so… AWWWW :)
After the interview Adam and Maroon 5 had a LOVELY task to commit to: a private gig in Hawaii (where we were just stayed for OUR Thanksgiving time… Bee keeps following me ;)) and the girls were with the boys, enjoying Paradise :) I love how they all get along :)
Behati then is a true tomboy... but even then she shines whenever with Adam – and she wears his absurd shirts way better than he does!
In those nights the Grammy nominations were given and as I expected no nods were for Maroon 5 this time, but PJ Morton got one :)
It’s okay, we will get it all with the Fifth Album out (and if he is not away to get married, I guess Adam will present some Award, and who knows, maybe dueting with someone… SARA BAREILLES?)
I am actually VERY pleased with the nominations, as you may have gotten from my Twitter feed: all my predictions and tastes for the 2013 in music got confirmed… because my taste is flawless, ya’ll! :)
Behati went then back to New York to keep working for the end of the Year; she shot lots of stuff, and went to the American Hustle Premiere with Shannan Click:
She is a friend since a life and I like the connection.
Always adorable in all her interviews, isn’t she?
Then who wouldn’t be excited to get married, and especially to Adam?
And she enjoyed the party with her girls when the show was aired.
This is how the show went:
And this is the mash up pre- and after the show:
Adam beside was also on Conan:
waiting for his lady to be back; but as after the party for the broadcast of the show she was working with VS, he thought about sending her SOME LOVE:
The pride he has is so touching!!!
And the flowers are, simply stunning.
I wish people would just accept his love for her…wholeheartedly, because she really makes him happy.
It’s VERY significant that Adam has favored only ONE tweet so far, and that tweet is linked to THIS paragraph, which speaks VOLUMES about how much he is in Love, and hates and gets sad when people hate on the woman he loves so much.
Please, read… and UNDERSTAND:
People should praise Behati, not hate on her…
Anyway: Adam said this about marriage:
I bet if you are believing trash, you won’t.
I pity you.
Adam is very happy and he doesn’t need anything else now that he has Behati, on this people all near to him agree.
Out of The VSFS airing, Behati got the most relevance, and her increase in popularity SURE had also to do with her supportive fiancée, but then she has a great merit on her own, because she is relevant since she’s a teenager, remember, for VS.
Accept this too, because it will remain this way, folks ;)
Behati is also a very talented woman outside of the fact she is a great model.
She is a photographer, and actress (she got credited for her role in Hawaii 50 at least, unlike some other posers claiming they’re actresses ;)) and now she is also a stylist.
After all the months before they were just talking about the line in various magazines, finally now we can see and hear from Bee’s words directly what her This here very moment capsule collection stands for.
About the beautiful Interview of Behati for THVM capsule collection, three things stand out:
1) Behati is wonderfully talented and her style is just perfect, original and real, and her personality is the best ever;
2) Behati obtains her career achievements on HER OWN (this was also made when her and Adam were broken up, as she candidly reveals, and of course she ventured in fashion BEFORE him, so once again haters who claim always so stupidly she copycatted Adam are wrong as per usual);
3) Behati is a music soul who understands music deeply: and the fact she quoted LYKKE LI’s song I follow rivers in her line she created while PARTED from Adam is a marvelous evidence on the fact she is Adam’s soulmate.
To understand this, you need to listen to the lyrics of “I Follow Rivers”, watch the music video and then follow some of the meaning of the song, which I have posted after the video:
THESE are then the correct insights on the meaning of the song: remember Behati chose this when Adam was not with her anymore and remember also in that time, when Adam was bed-jumping from Nina Agdal through at least three more eagerly willing ladies, Behati NEVER tried to use his name to sell herself once.
She never ever used their failed link to gain relevance, titles, interviews or anything else: she respected him, even if what he was doing was hurting her heart filled with love for him, and throught this, throught her force, willpower, patience, respect and given freedom she got him back, because what she gave him especially in times of separation was still true and unbound love, and Adam never ever was loved the way Behati loves him.
Behati just waited for Adam to realize you can’t forget, much less leave a soulmate and be fine: that’s what made Adam sure she is the one, and that is what allowed him to get over his fears and disillusion about marriage and ask for Behati’s hand.
I find this all so wonderful to be honest.
It makes my heart tingle and be happy for them, even tho of course our worlds are never meant to collide.
I still a well wisher because Behati finally gifted Adam with what he was searching for all his life: a TRUE feeling of unconditional love and acceptance (because Bee knows all sides of Adam and ACCEPTS them, rather than trying to change them, which is also, just listen to all of his songs, something he had searched for all his life. And finally found it in her).
Take this last lil mash up video now:
As we said before, Adam may have not been nominated with Maroon 5 for ANY Grammy this Year but Maroon 5 certainly had the most beautiful 2013.
Billboard certified this in any possible way.
Behati was not in Los Angeles when The Voice wrapped up (Adam won with his contestant) because she was in Tulum shooting for VOGUE SPAIN (can’t wait for it):
But as soon as she could she went back by her lover to spend Xmas holidays together, taking presents for the family from her Mexican time I guess ;).
Not much we know, except a few snaps testifying once more they are the perfect couple, and she holds on his family values perfectly, too (she will be a great role model for little Sam Levine’s girlfriend… aww):
Everyone loving Adam cannot avoid to love Behati and to see how she is for real his soulmate; soulmates are a rarity… so I hope soon or later anyone will just accepts Bee for what she is: PERFECTION for Adam and in herself.
Maroon 5 are now in Las Vegas for their New Year’s gigs at Mandalay… I can’t say I regret not going because we are personally heading towards a stunning place for celebration so it wouldn’t be fair, but I am sure those who are there will have a precious time (and I guess after that like last year they will all lead for a couple days to Los Cabos? Maroon 5 have to be in Europe immediately after Epiphany tho).
So by now let’s just cap this post (It has been long and probably not very coherent but it was for real too much to recap six months…please understand!), and wish EVERYBODY a WONDERFUL 2014.
We are going to spend it in Nature and on The Beach…
See ya on Twitter and Instagram and who knows… maybe here too and not after 6 months again ;)
Missus Z. salutes ya’ll ;)
… feeling quite motherly as of late?
Just some random feeling on a Monday morning ;)
And I know I’ve been left the blog quite dusted but I have traveled a lot these past months and I’m just enjoying life and some… new mindset ;).
I might update something soon.
Expect some Kobe Bryant panegyric and some friends celebration (Fede‘s getting MARRIED!!!! Holy Moly!!!) :)
Sometimes… soon? (Who Knows ;)).
Missus Z. is SHININGLY HAPPY and wants you to appreciate the two songs she’s SO into as of late:
Cesare Cremonini‘s latest (and biggest to date) masterpiece:
and my Summer song, new Daft Punk amazing Get Lucky:
Next week we get also Maroon 5 latest video for Love Somebody.
DREADFUL song choice, if I may say.
After the half dud Daylight was commercially wise (I predicted it as soon as they picked it up for single spotlight), they make it followed by another song of the same under-performing type.
They are TERRIBLE at picking singles.
But at least the video promises to be cute (it won’t be enough to make the song chart well, but we all knew they would have paid dust to the two smashes they still have on Overexposed anyway – Lucky Strike and Doin’ Dirt – didn’t we? *sigh*
I have tons of Maroon 5 material but I am not going to post any today sorry I am lazy ;).
I just make you see the latest I’ve gotten from this past Saturday’s Wango Tango in Carson, California:
Adam left quite quickly and on his own car immediately after the headlining performance of Maroon 5… heading to Vegas like he did in middle April, while his bandmates were in Coachella, or somewhere else?
Who knows; certainly he got stuff goin’ on (like always):
Oh, and if you wonder I have nothing about Adam’s new leading lady (for sure he isn’t sleeping alone EVER, so I assume he has something going on, but don’t know if he is in a proper relationship or he’s just testing new and many waters) after he and Behati broke up (the last post was the last time they ever shared time together, so all of the cheers from Adam’s people were something in the line of a goodbye to her as his girlfriend, but not as a friend of them all, luckily).
About the break up I am glad all of M5 & Adam’s entourage keep being very friendly with her; she has been a WONDERFUL girlfriend for him and she deserves love.
She has a great personality and I appreciate how also after the breakup she never whined, she never used him, she never tried to milk him or their link in any way.
She is a great girl and she surely will find plenty of people willingly to be her next beau.
And she will hopefully remember the good times with one of the sexiest creatures to ever walk this planet as a good point up in her life (I am sure she never thought any of that she had with Adam was meant to last… and she just had fun and I am sure she did, and that’s what is good for a girl of – soon – 24 years).
I for one never thought their relationship was meant to last as I kept saying over and over, because Adam won’t make ANY relationship last for a few years more, but I am happy Bee is still happy and hangin out with all the M5 crew, as that is a testify of her goodness in the coveted role she had the privilege to fill in for 10 months.
I think she has been by far the best and most discreet and loyal of all the girlfriends he has had while being famous, which is even more a point in her favor if you consider she was with him at the TOTAL peak of his fame (Adam is a household name by now, and increasingly so even) and I hope whoever is in after her is of the same breed.
Even better; I hope this new person (I don’t know if we have already a new proper girlfriend or if we are going to have one in a while after some bed romps more of him) is even more discreet and she has zero celebrity relevance.
I am pretty sure the one who will eventually be THE ONE (not happening for 3 or 4 more years anyway) will be somebody out of some rich Hollywood family with no public name known to the masses.
That’d be the perfect fit for somebody who hates being in the spotlight out of his job duties.
He needs somebody who understands the dynamics of the rich and famous and has no need to milk him; that would make him run even faster away from anybody, especially now that his star is super-sized and he has so many things going on he has settled for a life of super wealth already and way beyond what he probably thought he was able to achieve even just 3 years ago.
Anyway if you’re waiting for news here on Adam’s new squeeze, sorry, I have no clue and he DEFINITELY is all about making his love life – and life in general actually – SUPER private so I don’t expect news anytime soon about that; which I APPROVE of as you know.
His personal life is only his and his only public one has to be the professional one; glad he finally and totally embraced the first rule of smart rich people.
Do your thing.
Behind CLOSED & VERY THICK walls, and absolutely don’t merge with communards.
Yeah, stalkerish people are going to complain but Adam NEVER was the sharing type at all; when he was, he was because he was tricked and maneuvered into it and now he obviously doesn’t want any of it (I still think one of the main reasons for his previous break-up with Behati has to do with Ali the criminal trying again some exposing tricks through his name, using him again to boost relevance of accolytes, and I have pretty solid feedback over that and the fact he despises Ali with all of himself and forever).
Anyway I am not going to post about these things today, either.
Rely over the NAWWAL pages because there I always upload things faster ;)
I ammmmmmmmmm!!!! ;)
Catch you soon (or not so soon)
Missus Z. :)

Writing from a crazy place in a little quietness after and before the craziest traveling day I have probably ever had… I thought to download stress this way.
Better than eat compulsively tons of chocolate ;)
Oh… and since this is the first post of the Year, of course… happy 2013 (doesn’t it feels like the new year feeling was already from a decade ago?) ;)!
I hope everyone had a wonderful end of the Year as yours truly, hubby and crew had, and I also hope your setup of this by-now-rolling new frame of life is as exciting as ours ;).
So far I honestly don’t even know if I can figure out a personal space in my agenda already until incoming July but this is what I love about my life… it’s PACKED.
In fact, I am just in a few hours trip as I’m takin another airplane (hopefully) to land in a wonderful town for a wonderful event (in between stops are a bugger tho, and this snow is really driving us all mad)…
It’s all very belonging to my new found family of course and this time I am part of it enough to have been formally invited there so… it’s gonna be great (even though there are some organizational choices that I truly don’t like but they weren’t up to us so no complaining I know).
More treasured memories (and I will also survive the fact this time around the entertainment provided doesn’t even come close to what I was hoping since the (most recent) history of this kind of celebration… but again no complaining is allowed in these festive occasions and I will seal lips now, and bless the fact that I can be part of it ;)).
Truth is that social boundaries and exchanges are gonna be so worthy anyway, I am grateful and pumped and ready to go even more undercover this time around than we always do in these events (feeling quite royalty and a spy in a Mata Hari mission at times when these type of things have to be prepared, but I wouldn’t change the thrill and the amazement of it for any single thing in the world :) I’ve been born to live this kind of way! ;)).
It’s gonna be a fast pace of a few days and of course very private but I will love even the headaches and jet lags which are gonna offspring out of it ;).. and yes I am writing this now after I throw a pen at the wall because I am so nervous after hours spent in airports lounges trying to figure which route can guarantee us to land in time where we have to that I just gave up a minute to sanity.
But this is not my first trip of the year (if you are one of my 4000+ twitter followers you must know ;)) and sometimes yes… I do get stressed out too.
I am working already my ass off this year (for any leisure related trip, I have to work a lot both prior and after) and I have been to Berlin already (one of the many trips there in the first quarter I guess).
For the record, I am deeply fond of that town…
Even though lately Italians aren’t really up for anything German-related… but it’s OUR fault, so let there be MY love for you, Svevia ;)
Why do Italians dislike Germany as of late?
Well, because our awful politicians told Italians if we are in the pits is due to Merkel‘s acolytes.
Which is obviously a lie.
If Italy’s in the pit is because Italians are so stupid that they have believed Berlusconi for almost 2 decades.
Oh, boy… as we approach these new Elections I am scared as hell Italians will once more prove their idiocity and naivety and give to that monster way more votes than any developed civilians society shall be allowed to.
I am so appalled at the way that awful person is still battling for fucking us all some more… but then I realize he gets VOTED; better: he ALWAYS gotten votes actually… and I just occasionally stop to have faith in humanity altogether.
It’s a quick feeling but it hurts and bruises and hurts.
You know how much I do believe in the greatness of human beings.
It costs me a lot to admit that more than a few times human beings are just plain retarded, in a way too wide portion.
But let’s go on… and focus on good things.
Art is always a great thing for me to restore faith in humans ;)
Art is what makes me confident we still a society in development even though at times this pushin forward has cracks and stops and it looks way too lost in… transition (ah!).
Art makes my logic side fade away its cold sight.
Art is what makes me warm and lets me being happy.
I had to have a person with me who’s just made of and lives for art and embodies it so well… or else I wouldn’t be happy at all I guess :).
Of course art is substantially personal in its appreciation (I actually believe the perks of it transcends any personal taste actually and becomes universal… but that’s a long topic that we actually love to argue over at any buen retiro with the families so in a matter of hours it’s going to be very well dug into… and I can’t wait ;)), so it’s not like what I think is Law or anything but since this is my space and its exactly dedicated at the things I love…
Get ready for some heavily judgmental lines.
And by the way to have judgment is not “unfair” or “mean”… to judge things (Cartesio docet) is the only way human prove to be intelligent.
To judge reality gives us the power to transform it.
I cringe anytime people act or speak like to state opinions is some sort of bad habit we shall rid off.
Let us have very strong opinions instead.
Hypocrisy is the worst thing really… not being judgmental.
But let’s get back at art now ;).
The other day we went watching a movie that I personally REALLY have liked a lot… the cast of Tornatore’s “La Migliore Offerta” is splendid and everything was screaming “captivating” to me about this movie.
Then I love to resonate over mental differences and pathologies which affect the human relationships so this was easily a great movie to me (and Geoffrey Rush is ALWAYS to be seen ;)).
I liked it way better than Django Unchained to be honest (even though I loved Christopher Waltz there, but then as you know I really don’t like Leonardo Di Caprio’s acting so that alone pretty much ruined Django to me enough…):
Talking about how bad and overrated (and quite not so good looking either, now that he’s pigging like crazy) Leonardo Di Caprio is, let’s switch briefly to the fact AGAIN he has been snubbed by the Academy Awards Committee…
AS DESERVED, because all of his acting beside a couple of movies is either plain flat or just overdone or (like in Django) completely parodist.
Ah! Poor Leo ;) Learn from great actors what kind of performance you have to deliver to be considered receipt worthy… for instance ask the IMMENSE Daniel Day Lewis... or these two fellas below (even though they are not real people, they are far more talented and delivering as actors than you):
Speaking about artistry and overrated people who use media power to sell not-so-great skills…
Have any of you heard THE DATED, OVERHYPED, PAINFULLY DULL mess that is the “great return” of Justin
Timberpuss Timberlake in the music scene?
Let’s talk about how bad Suit & Tie is, but how it is already being sold by all media (paid by Justin’s team) to be some sort of classy revival of RnB in the charts.
It sounds like a Robin Thicke’s leftover and I am not saying from 2012… it sounds like a bad effort at making the whole world go sleepy that he (Robin, not Justin) didn’t agree to sing in 2007!!!!
I can’t believe such a sought after artist and long-time loved and missed performer returned on the scene with a 5.20 minute awful song which has maybe 10 second in the chorus which are not sickly-inducing.
I mean… Timberlake as an actor IS really bad and everyone wanted him back in music… but if this is the way he’s going to do music he can go back acting immediately.
No payola to radio will make this song successful (though it may help sell a while at first) Justin… in fact the amazing Thrift Shop (a song which I dearly loved straight up as I heard it) has already dethroned its overrated snoozy jam from iTunes’ top and hopefully preventing any top charting next week, and as hopefully 50 Cent, Eminem and Adam’s way superior My Life will prevent that horrid whine to chart at the top of the UK chart, too (let’s cross fingers).
Suit & Tie is just a very bad song tossed around with incredible pretentiousness, which is not surprising the least coming from Timberlake, a boybander who made a career out of Neptunes’ & Timbaland’s talent (when they were all at their peaks), taking it in all as it was only him doing it by himself.
Well Sir Timberpuss please learn that to give credit to others is good when you know your success is at least a team effort Justin… don’t act like you’re the second coming of anything because your name is based out of NSYNC success and that alone shall make you ashamed for the rest of your life.
You were pure bubble gum pop while the rest of the brained world was into either Nirvana or Britpop. There’s nothing to be really over-proud about in your career Justin… slow down the peackocking feathering and then I might even like you; this if you put out music like Sexy Back and not the inaudible tragedy which is Suit&Tie of course ;).
And look… while I am not really fond of Justin I do reckon some of his earlier songs were forward and amazing, and I like him as a performer (when he’s not so up his ass) and I do think he is talented (just not as much as he thinks he is though), so for me to loathe so much Suit & Tie it takes this: I can’t stand when garbage is sold like gold, and people believe their own hype.
This values also for the people I actually love, and in fact I have deeply hated anything that involved Adam as soon as he sold out to The Voice (that still a musical crime to me and after that he will NEVER be the same in my eyes: still adore his voice and love his talent but that flawed choice makes him no longer Divine to me ;)), till the point you haven’t seen him in this blog for months in between 2011 and 2012 (thing that I am very proud of: if I like people, I hate them double when they disappoint me fully ;)).
It was Overexposed pop brilliancy and utter realness forcing me to reconsider Adam and Maroon 5 from a fan point of view (I still hate and despise anything he does when related to The Karaoke Mess though… I so hope this is his last season there… please please please let it be), so in the end I judge it all based on actual music goodness and Suit & Tie is one of the worst song of the past 3 years.
It can come Einstein telling me S&T is good and I would still despise it.
Give me Bruno Mars over Justin ANY time as musical talent goes folks… Bruno is ten times better than Justin.
Do your thing: I’ve done mine with it and no matter if it could even get sold and become successful… it will only remain hyped trash to me (remember that to this day I still hate Moves Like Jagger too… and proudly).
I am even supposing this Suit & Tie rushing to the public it’s all part of Beyonce’s plans to make airwaves more used to RnB (she is coming out soon with an album allegedly full of that… and since 4 badly flopped for her standards, she is doing already everything to prevent a similar doomed chart-run this time, with powerful promos brought in by Pepsi, H&M, and the Superbowl…) to force Justin to put off such a weak song (featuring her insufferable and similarly overrated husband Jay-Z, totally worthless in an already completely worthless song) so that when hers come off people won’t have to
being forcedly fed up get used to just one of a song with a not so commonly played sound.
In fact Justin’s team is already trying to label S&T as a buzz single teasing that “the real thing” is coming after (of course they will have to put out something else of a more contemporary flair or Mr. Timberlake despite all PR push will flop miserably and the industry has hyped him for years way too much to allow this).
In between Justin and Beyonce’ teams trying to make people think what is pure recycling is actually great creativity (oh, dear… no, it’s just your prime which has faded out and won’t come back…), I have also to say that musically speaking also my people are trying hard to test my nerves.
Just a note because I will go on about Maroon 5 more later… but this I have to tell straight.
WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL YOUR COMMERCIAL SUCCESS SO HARD, Maroon 5?
You went up fully for it with the (excellent, pop-speakingly) Overexposed album, so why after a wonderful pair of singles with greatly deserved success (Payphone and One More Night) you not only decided to use one of the most uneventful track on the record as third single (The cute-but-flat Daylight) and NOT giving it even a decent video (the 9 minutes video fan mess killed any chance at any music tv or video outlet to promote the song, as expected, and this re-edition of the video, although great for a charity project, still won’t be played anywhere useful), but then also, after it’s starting to climb decently enough to the iTunes and radio, enough to give it at least some Top Ten peak (it will have it in two more weeks)…
…YOU FRIGGING DECIDE TO PICK ANOTHER SNOOZEFEST BALLAD FOR 4th SINGLE ALREADY?????
Given that Love Somebody is better than Daylight, but still nowhere as good as the only ballad on the record which would have universally smashed all around, and which should have been the third single (Wipe Your Eyes… and it’s funny because when I heard the demo – I was still in my Maroon 5 refusal time due to Adam being on
The Fuckery that thing – I thought it was terrible… but then the album version threw me off my feet and it’s by far one of the songs I love the most on Overexposed… it’s criminal that it’s just a bonus track), WHY PUT IT OUT NOW THAT DAYLIGHT IS TAKIN OFF SOMEHOW????
This is suicidal from any commercial standpoint and it’s absurd to not consider that viewpoint, given that you wanted to be commercial at the maximum this time guys.
The two songs will erase themselves from radio and none of them will flourish, killing the hype on you exactly when you actually deserved it most (Grammy time).
I mean, Overexposed is Platinum already and selling wonderfully in USA and in the world (for the current record buying times at least), and it’s an album FULL of great pop smashes and you…
Decide to waste it all this way?
Not even what looks to be a great video (I don’t get the nakedness and the smurfy-ness with the song lyrics, but then no Maroon5 video has any logic anyway…) because we finally have a sexy female and some skin shown (Hallelujah!) will make up for the strategic mistake you’re again ready to commit.
Why, why oh why you didn’t go the logic and most rewarding route of doing this:
Payphone (April to July 2012) > One More Night (August to November 2012) > WIPE YOUR EYES (perfect sweet ballad from December 2012 to March 2013) >LUCKY STRIKE (surefire #1 groovy hit from April to July 2013) >DOIN’ DIRT (Summer Dance Smash 2013).
That would have been a flawless chart run… you would have affected Katy Perry’s multiple consecutive weeks in the Top Ten record… but now it’s all gone because you’ve stopped yours at 39 and there’s no way either Daylight or Love Somebody will ever match any of those other songs’ I listed smashing chart potential.
And I still hope the reason I got told about for you not releasing the video already shot for The Man Who Never Lied with the gorgeous Valerie Van Der Graaf isn’t the real one for pulling off its idea because it would have been the stupidest form of consoling ever.
Biz is biz, and that song and video would have been good for M5, so why give in at somebody’s whining?
And the papers for the agreements you’ve signed – certainly you did – were already sealed so you shouldn’t have again to have agreed with that person’s (those persons) insane requests for protecting their “images” which no one cares about frankly.
You should have released The Man Who Never Lied as planned and give us all a stare at Valerie’s insane beauty along.
Anyway, I hope soon or later that beautiful video will come out anyway, because Emily is cute and all but she’s not really famous beside in adult videos&pictorial circles while Valerie is a fairly established model with a great resume already and she would look awesome in the gallery of M5 video vixens…
Out of these three days of shooting Love Somebody then we have a video which seems theming along… homeless busking ?!?!?? (I wonder how the naked sexy blue mashes with that… oh, boy… Maroon 5 videos are never ever going to make much sense are they? What is that… A Clockwork BLUE remake? The Fisherman remake meets Alex DeLarge? Oh, guys… ;)):
Actually these “homeless” images are not for the video of Love Somebody (pheeeewwww) but they are part of a video song skit Adam did with Lonely Islands’ golden boys (Andy Samberg!!!!) in preparation of his incoming SNL hosting stint in a week.
Now let’s just hope that can be at least half as wonderful as the immortal Iran So Far skit.
That was perfection and to even match it will be serious task ;).
Back briefly to the Love Somebody song subject, I just think The Man Who Never Lied would have been a better choice for single (again) both over Daylight and also Love Somebody itself (definitely fitting more after Daylight was already released tho, because two ballads quite equal in a row will never be a good move, let’s face it…) to be honest (and Valerie is also way sexier and more beautiful than the still very cute Emily Ratajkowski, too, even dressed up… tho Emily looks a bit like an – infinitely less beautiful – Natalie Portman and we all know Adam’s old soft spot for her so... there you go: he got a slutty version of Natalie for the video so it’s going to work wonderfully ;) ;) ;)).
Sometimes I wonder why one of my favorite bands is so capable to mess its own chances at flawless chart runs so consistently over the years, while still labeled as completely sold out in the main time (they are not… only Adam sold out to
The Fuckery… the rest of the band is pure ;)).
At least if they TRULY were so!!
If they were sold out for real they wouldn’t always ruin their chart chances by pickin up the worst singles as soon as number 3 comes!
But they keep creating pop and mass-appealing music with the attitude of an indie super creative group allegedly (and they have NEVER been indie and not even alternative, actually… never ever in their whole creative life, not even as Kara’s Flowers).
It drives me mad at times, because it gets so frustrating to picture what they could have done of even more impacting and huge without so many inexplicable self-inflicted missteps.
Oh weeeey: nothing we can do about that: I guess it’s even more entertaining this way, right? (NO.)
Okay… music rants are -momentarily – on hold as I have to heal my Lakers heart a bit.
We are keeping being a mess this season…injuries and the wrong managers’ pick up (sigh… Mike D…. over Pjax… REALLY? I’m never recovering from this… I can’t :(), and just the other day we’ve lost in the worst way against the Meat of beefy Bronzey “I got Half a ring Only But it’s Hyped Like they are Two” James (and you know how that hurts me…).
But I am still loving it all.
The ride in times of pain as much as I adore those in times of jubilee.
In fact the most exciting thing that has happened online since we last meet in these pages is that FINALLY my hero Kobe Bryant is on Twitter.
I can’t start to explain how happy i am about this.
He’s the whole approach I have at determination in life.
He’s such an image of power and force to me… all of my stronger sides in personality are willingly shaped (or tried to) after his working ethic.
I know what people will bring it up anytime I express my simply INFINITE adoration for Kobe…
“He’s a cheater” “He’s a man not to be trusted” and so on.
For the record: I am aware he’s a cheater… I also FIRMLY believe he is NOT a raper, just a cheater, so to me that don’t matter.
If I would believe he did commit rape I wouldn’t idolize him because rape is awful BUT the fact he is a cheater doesn’t move me at all.
ALL famous and rich people are cheaters. Sportsmen are by far the biggest category of cheating people. I don’t care. Sex is pure drive and all of the famous people… ALL of them simply are cheaters. Male ad females.
All that you see in celebrity couples after a while is a front… and very often all the significant others know and agree at the cheating as long as image is preserved, because they know the sexual instinct can only be stopped for so long unless something peculiar happens (which almost never does) and in the upper circles chances to cheat are simply dozen a day and NOBODY (I repeat: NOBODY) can refuse that tickle for years and years and years and never give in.
If you believe the rich and/or famous are faithful… you probably believe also in Santa flying over the whole world on Xmas Eve even though you are probably 35+ years old.
So what Kobe did and probably still do in terms of his marital life DOESN’T INTEREST nor TOUCHES me and my opinion of him.
He is a devoted father and that is the only thing that matters in the end to me when I judge his private life (which I actually don’t judge at all: it’s not my biz).
I have been at a lot of high society events and I know many high profile people and trust me… the life of biz & high society is different.
It has always been, It will always be. People not into it cannot really understand and it has nothing to do with “morals”.
Many people who would be labeled as “cheating scumbags” have always their significant other informed and agreeing on the cheating (which is not even that when done openly). Sometimes they will even like it to not have to provide stale sex but just live with the perks of the fame and wealth without even minding.
Immoral? Not if agreed on both parts.
Sexual and family life is a personal agreement between couples and what’s “moral” for a public who has no clue on those dynamics has no relevance in their worlds. And it shouldn’t. Oh… and if you don’t agree with my views here… I DON’T GIVE A FRIGGIN FLYING FUCK ;) ah!.
I do believe (and I have examples in my life) that a real marriage can be kept along if both parts really work on it… what I also firmly believe though is that the life of a certain type of VIP people doesn’t stand upon the concept of life the normal people think apply to anybody.
Until people are not into that kind of different life… they really cannot have opinions on it because they have no clue whatsoever on what it all means there.
This is it.
What makes Kobe Bryant my hero is his approach to the whole of “Life is a Driven Path” philosophy of existing.
That means you have to live by constantly trying to get better and perfection anything that you are supposed to do which in the end works also regarding who you are supposed to BE.
It means to never sits on laurel of any kind.
It means you see the life as a developing road that YOU can decide the direction of if you’re strong enough.
This is what I really think life is, too: a powerful journey to shape on your own will and it doesn’t matter if in the end you will be successful at that target… the sole fact you try to be will give value and meaning to your time on this planet.
And it will inspire others to act the same and this is exactly what Kobe did for me.
Tracing a line I will always follow.
He is pure force, pure determination, pure will.
He was not born with the best physical asset to become a legendary basketball player.
HE WORKED OUT TO BE SO.
His unnatural power and perfection is a careful and continuous work of mastery on himself and THIS is why he is my hero.
Because he multiplied his given talent with his INNER force and belief and will and care and work.
He is the image of what a perfect athlete is, because his talent got always shaped up by his own actions and thoughts.
He is immense.
When he will retire (and he will as soon as he will perceive he cannot anymore be 100%) it will be one of the saddest moments in my life… Just like when I lost Steve Jobs.
I will lose one of the greatest inspirations in my life and this already saddens me.
This is why I hate that The Lakers are playing so poorly this year the most: because they are losing precious days out of the last ones where Kobe can grace the floor.
For me sport is art… the sport at its maximum levels is a form of art, and the people expressing it at most are in full artists to me.
And as much as I adore the pure drive and amazing-ness of Kobe… the same I get blown away by people whose god-given skills are just tale-ish appearing in front of anybody.
Case in talk: Lionel Messi.
Lionel Messi, The God Of Football who just got his 4th consecutive and so well deserved Ballon D’Or (take that Cristiano Fake Player Ronaldo, King of Overhyped Losers – in Football -: you are not even comparable to Messi when he is ASLEEP and you are in full run. You treat the ball like a caveman and no way you could win that trophy until Messi is ALIVE… go get some mani&pedi and disappear soon from pitch, thank you: you bring nothing actually relevant to the table, you are just good to sell L’Oreal shampoos.)
So while Kobe is massive talent and massive will, Messi is pure unbound and overflowing talent instead… and I adore that too, I adore when the genetics create the ultimate perfection at something.
I adore that it’s almost overhuman the way he makes magic on a football pitch.
Messi is poetry. You can’t avoid to amaze yourself at him.
Messi is like Maradona.
And the only player I loved to really watch killing my Milan (soon again I fear) beside the other football artist I loved dearly until he played, Roberto Baggio (in and out of Milan actually… it happens like almost NEVER to me to keep loving somebody, especially even playing for Inter!!!).
In fact anytime in Italy THIS commercial is on I squirm.
This is… it’s finding beauty at any step that makes life so special to me.
Of course I speak from a privileged position but I like to think I would have this same oversight on living even if I wouldn’t belong to a wealthy family and gotten married to… well; to what I have ;).
Despite my well environmental surround, I have always worked hard to become what I am; I have never been shallow about my future; I have always been very focused and absolutely keen at being independently possent on my own.
At not even 5 I was making money out of… stylish choices I was pushing my peers at.
I think if you have more options in life given your happy and rich background, it’s only fair and demanded for you to MULTIPLY that and what you’ve received, not to waste it, because a position of favor that you’re born in is a responsibility you have to protect and possibly expand for those following you… otherwise you are a waste and a loser and you are stealin life and chances to those who might not have been born as lucky as you, but who would have maybe been more talented and skilled than you at making something worthy with their lives.
To have is a further pushes at TO BE: waste that, and you are just a not deserving human being.
I like how almost anything I wish for it happens to me… sooner rather than later: but I always believe that I deserve it all.
I deserve to be flying where I am doing… I deserve all the love and the praise (and also the green envy, from unworthy people) that my life is offering me.
I work hard for it.
And I am proud of my personality because I am exactly like I want to be and I don’t care of anyone’s approval but my own one: and trust me my own judgment is the toughest ever about anything.
I live a pretty good life.
I am sure in a while I will experience things which are not coming my way, and maybe I will experience loss, demise, pain… but so far I haven’t.
I have never been affected in my love charge so far in my life: all that I wanted and all that I loved and loved to have… came into my hand, and stays there to date.
I never ever felt anything less than adored in my life.
So far… nothing has ever happened to me which I couldn’t call amazing and even the only time when I actually had to live something scary, terrifying, damaging and invasive… that thing has actually helped me in becoming way stronger than I could have been without.
If I am the way I am it’s out of immense family and peers’ love and out of a very terrible experience which in the end didn’t happen as badly as it could have just because I had friends and people ready to protect me and help me out of any damage (psychological and physical) I was suffering out of that.
I can’t say I am glad that happened to me but the outcome of that experience has actually made me a greater person and more driven and more aware and more strong-willed than ever.
So it was useful in the end.
And I always think that all of the love I am surrounded by came even bigger and wider as a sort of… heavenly or destiny reward out of that tragic thing I was involved into.
That’s why I say that my life is perfect, even when my family cringes thinking of the fact my life has also had to sustain those days of horror.
But I truly believe m life is pretty darn perfect and actually it’s a great thing NOT everything I have ever dreamed to live did happen to me, because to be keep going on you must still have targets and you must keep shape your future according to your own main line of wish and will and sometimes a no-success is the push you need to a greater success after.
Therefore, I am grateful for my missing as much as I am for the things that I wanted that I have accomplished (and those are so many in fact), like losing the chem prize when I was 15, or miss the chance to compete internationally in volleyball; like the fact I haven’t been able to ravish into a long deep conversation with Steve Jobs (and that obviously won’t ever happen now), or exchange music tips with either Michael Stipe or Thom Yorke (I have been almost able to do the latter, but that dinner was scrambled out by the worst table assignment EVER) or of course the fact that my dream fuck (aka boning Adam) hasn’t been performed because I ran shit scared when the set-up was almost complete… that is good that it never happened though because if I took that chance I had when I was barely 20 I would have probably forever hated him (or myself) after…
I was way too inexperienced back then, paraphernalia & alcohol wouldn’t have helped me in feeling any differently than a little fish in a tank of sharks&deadly jellyfishes – because I never was into any of the two and I still to this day – and then he definitely was in his sluttiest (but also kinda undefined and unrefined sexually) phase back in those days so that missing is a good thing in my book.
I would have hated to have to replicate with my vocal idol (he was that since a while already) those kind of utterly disappointing encounters I had some months after that chance flew away like when it did happen to date (not really date… just bone, and just that out of my will not theirs) a couple of VERY famous sportsmen in Uk and Italy just to discover under so much physical strength it lied absolutely zero bed skills (and by my early 20s, I wasn’t yet THAT good myself at that to be taking the teaching upper hand you know ;)) which for me pretty much equal the fact you become also a ZERO as a man (sorry, sex is that important to me that it defines you as person as much as soul, heart and brain do) .
I can keep my free pass(es) for life anyway – I have three with K and he has three with me but one of them is a female we both agree on so ;)… it’s like 2 ;) – for when we will all be tiresome and middle aged and during some swanky political/biz party on the Hollywood crests we can debauchee in a more Baudelaire’s way (K would like it too, we have also always agreed on that ;) it’s not really that we have taboos when it comes to sex over here… otherwise we couldn’t be married I guess ;)) without fears to be inadequate (there’s absolutely nothing worse than having the highest sexual expectations on any person/situation/framing of possibility and then being let down or being the one letting down the other… absolutely nothing that can affect the ego more than it, nothing!).
Oh and if you think the debauchee is anything like in those garbage books like 50 Shades of whatever think again… that is absolutely fictional… nothing comes even remotely close to what happens behind curtains (or actually open space) in any upper mansion or swanky penthouse where politicians, CEOs and tv executives share breath.
Tv execs are by far the most pervert people you can meet: they have that thirst that comes from the fact they are frustrated to not being MOVIE top tier execs, but have the power of – generally – making more money than the majority of those. The gap in which the frustration and the revenge feeling lies within for them mashing with the power they have onto others’ lives create a plethora of huge freaks which you have to really think about sometimes, even in those aforementioned “open-for-everything” kind of “parties”.
Anyway any book from the decadence around 1900/1920 describes all the feelings and haunts in these situations WAY better and more aptly than what is put out currently.
This society we live in is second rate even in the slutty time department.
Too bad ;)
Okay okay… enough with the deep thing…
Let’s fill the remain of time in between airplanes and snow and delays with some Maroon 5 chronicles ;) and in between with some Behati&Adam’s chronicle too (because yep, they still together and I really like that).
I hope they go on as much as possible, though everybody knows with Adam you can never tell what can happen tomorrow.
But as long as they keep it reserved and private and she keeps being his angel of care and love, I am sure things can just keep getting stronger actually ;).
Last post we ended while Maroon 5 were in Las Vegas as already said… The guys had wonderful performances and then enjoyed the perks of being in Las Vegas with their girls and some family.
Behati had worked in Los Angeles those days prior and though she was responsive to her friends in fashion’s praise she of course went the right way and just stayed with Adam all the way as usual without tweeting any of that because that is private life :).
Behati always does her work and then without really pimping it she goes straight to where she belongs: her man’s side. Good Bee ;)
Too bad she missed her dear Coco Rocha for a hot minute, as the latter was in Vegas too by the time Maroon 5 family was coming down there:
All people and entourages were in Las Vegas: Behati had fun with Ali Tamposi (missus Jimmy V.) the most as usual (love how they get along) and of course as usual she never tried to steal Adam’s thunder nor trying to conquer any attention for herself…
But she still went gambling aside him (because Adam actually adores gambling… he really brings it like a kid at the table) and being just his loving shadow at any step and not for any other reason but the fact THIS IS WHAT ADAM WANTS.
You don’t stay nine months with a person who practically always lives with you if you don’t like it and her; especially because if you are in Adam’s position you can change girlfriends with a snap of your fingers.
If he doesn’t and has always Behati around him… it must mean he likes her more, right?
I guess it’s only logic working here ;)
Oh… the teacup pig Adam gifted Behati with during Xmas wasn’t with them in Las Vegas (and not even after that where they were about to head after).
The cuteness overload is unbearable ;).
As usual, the fact any private time between Adam and Behati is secretive, and none of them likes to make the world part of it (as it is right to be, because their life is only theirs and “fans” have no role in it), many started to guess if they were together, if they broke up (ah, the wishful thinking of so many losers… ;)) and started to say they must have broken up because Adam was meant to be in New York for New Years’ eve NBC Special (an unbound bore).
The NBC special “starring” him (a ten second thing is “starring”?) was obviously recorded by him:
No, Adam wasn’t in New York because as soon as Maroon 5 gig in Vegas on December 30th ended, and after he and Behati gambled for some more hours after, the two happy lovers took another plane and along with Adam’s assistant Shawn and his Gisella, and with Sam and Steph Farrar’s families, they flew over secretive (again) paradise.
This Paradise in Los Cabos, Mexico (this is part of Hilton’s chain and is a private property where no paps could ever snap a thing: because yes, Adam is a VERY reserved person and you have to deal with this):
Up there in Los Cabos, Adam had his usual and by now regular fun with golf (sigh), and Behati kept bonding with the wives of his nearest friends, the way it’s fine to be, and all that under a wonderful sun.
Oh, by the way… whoever claims delusionally Behati’s got any body trouble, is just jealous of her great thin frame (the only type of frame Adam actually likes), because the encounters of them two at Eldorado Beach & Resort Club were absolutely stunned at the perfection of Behati’s body on display ;) (of course).
Adam did not tweet either for many days… only briefly (while still in Los Cabos) acknowledged his luck ;) and shared his bold resolution for 2013 (last year he wanted many things and he probably solved to achieve them all, because I am sure he calls Behati “lion” at times in bed and so he has also made friends (;)) with a lion).
Career wise, to be more awesome in 2013 compared to an already fantastic 2012 will take some interesting twist. ;)
For instance… it will take to see how Adam (only him) will do as Saturday Night Live host… in 7 days from now :)
I will be not anymore in USA when the last episode of AHS Asylum series will air (I adored this and I can’t wait to see it in Italian too) and I will have to wait to know what the hell did happen to Adam’s (Leo) arms in there…
I wish he would do another AHS stint because he did decently enough as debut there but it seems (from one interview he gave while promoting
The Fuckery season 4) that he has already denied Ryan Murphy request there.
I hope he changes his mind and agrees on more AHS acting ;).
I am curious to see how he will fare; sad that I will not be able to stay in New York enough to catch at least rehearsals ;) but ehi… I have work to do :)
Maroon 5 have just kicked everyone’s asses in 2012 and I am really proud of that, I love the way Overexposed is and I am so glad it got love from the public and Grammy praise too.
I may not agree on their single choices now but that doesn’t mean I don’t think they are up to producing amazing pop this time.
I love it.
When the holiday in Cabo ended, Behati and Adam returned in Usa, of course together; Adam’s first and immediate duty was the TCA panel for NBC that he had to do for of course that show that I won’t mention (he looked dapper though ;)).
The hilarious thing is that by the time they were in Cabo together, some retarded site(s) for gossip trash which is feeding a mass of retards readers actually published pictures of Adam which were snapped in JUNE and labeled them current (i.e. from January 2013) telling Adam was spotted on Extra! set interview (this because those days the outlet was airing interviews with The Fuckery Season 4 promos which were actually recorded weeks before).
Sorry for the haters, but this is how Adam and Behati do: they spend time together and not for the cameras but just for themselves (which is tragic for gossip sites because they live out on celebrities actually posing for them); when he does stuff, she does too; and when she’s free, she actually keeps pursuing her passion for photography by hangin around Travis Schneider (excellent mentor).
Adam and Maroon 5 had to perform at the CES infamous event in Las Vegas (money money money) and while there for a couple of days, Adam even gifted his entourage with free holidays and gambling (Noah Passovoy thanked much for it) and even – it seems – gave them his winning checks at the green table.
He seems a very happy man to me ;).
Talking about expanding brands and making money, news surfaced those days that Adam and Nicki Minaj would sign on a multiple year project for a mass retailer in Usa, for developing a proper branded fashion items line.
This means, quite simply, that by now Adam is an A series celebrity.
I also like that he does that with Nicki… it’s going to be fun ;).
The reason he does this?
Money of course; he knows he won’t be a popstar forever (he also doesn’t want that for all his life, has always said he doesn’t see himself on stage at 40) and he wants expand his reach and make all the money which will make him able to retire at a certain point (and maybe then be a family man) the way he wants to do it; these are the moves to be made and they have to be made now.
The biz woman in me praise his patterns endlessly at the moment: the guy is smart, even though I hate he had to start so chaotically by betraying his fans waiting for him on tour (ie: ME) and sign onto
The Fuckery ditching his truest essence, which he knows he has even though sometimes he plays it coy ;).
But now a lot of way more interesting things are lined up for him so I hope he gives up on that show and moves on and better ;).
Oh… and by the way Adam’s not the only Maroon 5 related person involved in National Fashion… Jimmy V’s lil sister is going to compete on Project Runway ;) and he’s so cutely proud it’s melting ;).
But these are talks of the future; at the moment Maroon 5 are still here and active and collecting awards, like they did again at The People Choice Awards on past Sunday:
Behati didn’t attend PCA with Adam… and I actually didn’t expect her to.
That is Maroon 5 moment, not hers; she has never pushed to be stealing Adam’s limelights and so far this has made them super unite as couple; Behati actually was still in Los Angeles all the way till January 12th so she could have; but the point is that she doesn’t really want to be part that way of Adam’s stuff.
She’s not trying to milk him.
This is a great thing and I hope it can be this way as long as sky gets blue :)
Of course then now whenever she works and her shots see the light of VS catalogues and films… people know she is “Adam’s one” and this makes media more interested in her; but you don’t see her push this at all.
She keeps never speak about their life; she never tweets when they are together; she keeps it fully and completely private what IS completely private.
She could be daily in news if she would love due to her boyfriend… but she has NEVER used him this way; and for this I really love her.
Many people like to bash her, but truth is she’s gorgeous and full of unique-ness, she has a strong personality and she is with one of the sexiest creatures that world has ever seen, being a very wonderful sexy kitten herself (of course, as Adam likes only these sexy things).
That is surely reward and who cares if livid losers spread lies on her or cover her with insults… at the end of the day, she gets to Adam’s bedroom and unfolds him and let him unfold her and they experience the best side of life ;) and while haters can keep hate ;) Behati and Adam can keep win instead ;).
For how long they can… I hope they are happy and have TONS of happy sex ;).
Talking about people and sex and musicians (?)… Taylor Swift followed Adam on Twitter after his speech at PCA.
You all know a part of me has always wondered how a Tay + Adam fling could inspire the best revenge song in both… but of course this isn’t happening.
Behati surely will take care this never happens (Taylor wishes it would though, I am sure. After being with Mayer, is not really like any of us can believe she is this naive princess ;), so sure she would love to step a toe in Levine’s crazy penchant for all things (sexy) red, right Swift?).
Though definitely she has the physical frame Adam loves.
But let’s not diverge too much from the good road… take this video which is a mash up for all that A&B have lived so far this month (songs choices are always well thought over ;)):
I hope this state of things can go on for a lot still: I do like them as a – very exclusive – couple.
Bless them ;)
On Sunday, when Behati was away already to join her fellow Angels in Miami for a new shot/film, Maroon 5 had a wonderful gig to play.
No, not Golden Globes…
BUT RYAN TOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
It made me so unbelievably happy to see them 4 together again…
I can’t express… it’s marvelous that they still THEM after an entire life :)
I love to perceive that Jesse is slowly getting back into the Maroon 5 things… I want a 5th album which will blow everyone away with its perfection and then Maroon 5 can call it a day just from the top of the world with a record which can be AOTY.
Pop evolution with fusion of jazz and rock.
Jesse can bring this and I want it.
Can’t wait honestly :).
While Adam was into his childhood lullabies, Behati flew to Miami to team with Russel James and her bestie Candice S..
And they created lots of magic ;)
Now I hope after spending time with Candice in Miami, when Behati gets back to New York (for Adam’s SNL for sure) she can meet again her real BFF namely Coco Rocha who still painfully miss her.
I want this to happen again:
And while his lady was hard at work, Adam had his chance to relax in the sun of California along Milo, before starting shooting the video for Love Somebody.
Friends are important… and since Adam’s friends ALL like Behati (Jesse is starting to be more vocal about her through instagram’s appreciation especially, and this makes me happy) I’d love for her friends to get to bond a bit with Adam too – even though this is always more difficult, being him as reclusive with strangers as he is.
Anyway back to Behati’s work, she shone in Miami; of course though – it had to happen soon or later – the paps who were on set and whom had already sneaked pics of Alessandra and Candice the days before got a hold of Behati’s perfection too.
The sites known for providing the media spins about the hottest females to the horniest males started to put Bee on their radars… nothing wrong with it cos she deserves admiration but she is not the kind of slutty model who dons thongs all the time and work an overboard “sexy” stare and image all around, all the time.
Behati is more the tomboy type with the physique du role of a Goddess.
TMZ now will try it all to make her happen as a sort of vixen… but this will make some uncomfortable pappin’ more likely to happen and this will cause unwanted stress to this very low-key (and for this happy) couple.
I hate that; the thirst and the voyeurism of people ready to drool over lives they’ll never come close to.
I hope this won’t affect Adam and Behati because they do so well in private; I am happy though because Bee again didn’t try to milk this papping or sudden relevance to national media at all; she just ignored it, posted a friendly reminder to beloved Ali Tamposi (whom of course answered her friend promptly) and went on after the media frenzy to post silly pictures of herself in no glam fashion to dry perverts out.
I love her attitude there ;).
But the fact she’s hot can’t be denied and of course she would attract some fine tasted man as Adam with it ;)
It’s nature ;).
While We are up talking about M5, let me just post one thing about James’ side project JJAMZ because they kicked ass at Leno:
And I hope they smash a lot. In fact they are right now at Sundance Festival kickin even more ass and everyone must buy Suicide Pact (an obvious reference to Maroon 5 habit at pickin up singles past the second one) ;).
Talking of Festivals… Maroon 5 are set to rock The amazing Jazz festival in New Orleans later this year!!! So much greatness again:
And again so completely deserved by our guys ;).
They can keep rocking but you know the fact they are again exploring their jazz mojo makes me all excited about incoming NEW music which hopefully won’t be any related to heartbreak finally but will dwell into beauty and sexy of a good life vibe ;).
This is what just happened yesterday btw… Adam was still in Los Angeles shooting the Skit with Andy Samberg SNL video and Behati was still in Miami, this time shotting for NEXT after she did that other sizzling one for Victoria’s Secret:
I guess they are about to reunite as soon as Adam flies to New York for his Saturday Night Life hosting gig, which has rehearsal starting on Tuesday for sure ;).
Or wahetever ;)
Not sure it can happen Ben but maybe Bee can fete you over with some delay in NY just about now ;)
I hope paparazzi will leave them alone.
Their relationship will be way safer out of all the pap crap (but now that even TMZ is on it, I fear trouble… let’s hope they can keep on being very reclusive and strong, because that is the best hope they will keep on actually being a couple ;)).
I just want their working life to be as amazing as possible and their private lives to be as secure and secluded as possible too.
Am I asking too much?
I hope not: because what I do through this is wishing them WELL :).
By the way… if anybody can give me an hint about the reason behind Example’s questions regarding Adam I’d be happy… I am so hoping they can collaborate!!! It’d be amazing :D!
So much to look forward I guess for this 2013.
Just one last note: K&I may have gotten a cat and start to feel quite… “parental” BUT there’s no plan for us for a bigger family at the moment.
Stop hinting… stop asking… stop guessing ;).
We are still in our honeymoon phase.
And since this traveling space is so cold and stuttering… why not kill some await… in the best possible way…?
The writing can distress me only so much after all ;).
I just hope we won’t be completely out of force when we will finally land in DC.
Anyway… perks and digs of the on-the-run life I guess ;)
Have all a great rest of the month.
We surely will ;)
Missus Z. :)
My 2012 has been amazing: for K&I, Maroon 5, Adam & Behati, and to top it all I’ve got Eva. Thank YOU Universe! And Farewell Rita Levi Montalcini

Hi there everybody!
Yes yes… I kept my word and came in to sneak a proper post after the Xmas Extravagant Gifting one .
I had to put the 121212 Concert up… after we went to The XX at Alcatraz the start of this month I was thinking no musical experience could have topped it (at least for Deecember 2012) but then I witnessed that gig and went overcrazy and I decided it was a must to make all of you seeing/hearing it.
Am I good or am I wonderful?
After all music is my greatest passion and if you know me you weren’t surprised I chose a musical kind of little gift for you all the other day.
Please tho… be also charitable and help those in need by downloading the album that helps Sandy’s victims.
I wish I could have found also the amazing show Roberto Benigni put up for Rai 1 earlier this month (about our Constitutional Law… amazing) but unfortunately the only way to broadcast that is this one (not my video but check it because it’s amazing :)):
Take it as a further little homage to the wrapping of the year (sorry for non Italians… I am actually sad none of you can appreciate the perfection that Benigni is).
I was all up to write a super happy post.
And trust me I will…
But as I began to write after coming back to our little gem house of Ortisei after snowy happy morning… I read and watched news and I got struck with the one that amazing Rita Levi Montalcini has passed away.
Not unexpectedly… she was over 100 years old…
But I am a scientist and a woman and you can guess the fact I was 1 when she won the Nobel Prize was a sign for me in so many ways, I would later develop a proper worshipping of her; her brain, her style, her class, her devotion and passion to the mankind and FOR mankind.
So please before I go on…
Unite along me in the memory of her greatness: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rita_Levi-Montalcini
Now let’s go back to the proper post I was having in mind to write…
The highlights of December in Z&K’s life have been the usual ones (I am kinda routinely in this month more than in others i have come to acknowledge).
I loved to enjoy Milano under snow as well… it gets so beautiful when everything switches from stone to fairly pearly white, and the monuments seem made of ice :)
Karim parents’ have been here also for the Scala Première… it has been simply perfect and I did enjoy more Wagner personally; we’ve spent time with the people we love and we have also taken care of our new Ortisei House (a bijoux) and of adorable Nut (he starting to live up to the crazy version of his name ;) and we love it… the house is happier now that he is here… Swifty keeps being unfazed by him but Nut is trying to be friends ;) let’s see ;))
So… in a bunch of hours this 2012 will end.
We’re ending it over the magic surroundings of Dolomiti, after we’ve got to spend a wonderful Xmas with both my parents and K’s in Florence… then we also enjoyed a wonderful break there by ourselves after they left; being all loved up and witnessing my favorite ballet (Swan Lake) at Teatro Verdi.
I’me feeling so grateful as I watch the woods burn in the fireplace and while K&I are taking a sweet time going through all of our filmed 2012 moments (total of caught on video life bites… – NO KIDDING – 211.5 HOURS! More than 40 minutes for each day. If we’d average it. But we don’t. Clearly ;)).
We have had our great fun in the snow this morning and basically we are very excited to celebrate New Year with all of the crew reunited (we move towards Cortina tomorrow for the party… I love there but I love more to have our little cozy place in this way quieter town in the valley ;))
Nut is back home, we haven’t brought him here unlike we did in Florence because we would be at risk of losing him in the snow… and then my parents are really good at pampering him when we are not home.
Swifty has received just half an hour ago a video message (yes… I video message my horse… so what? ;) ).
In just a little over a couple of hours Marghe will bring here little princess Eva and then my New Year’s holidays will be complete (glad they traveled today because yesterday it took us A LIFE to arrive in Ortisei from Florence.. today they shouldn’t find trouble on the roads as everybody is already at their destination… hopefully!).
Darn I am SO in love with that kid it’s unreal.
I can’t fathom it. I just live it like a blessing; probably the greatest one this year which is ending’s gifted me with.
Oh, and by the way…
Even though the fact Berlusconi is up again for Prime Minister Running is a definitive sign that humanity SHALL deserve some punishment (or at least Italy… but on the other hand Berlusconi MIGHT be the punishment… :/).
But yeah, Obama saved the world’s ass by being sent a second time in the White House so I am pretty hopeful 2013 won’t suck.
Actually (beside sporty troubles for my teams, beloved Milan and Lakers) I really have to say 2012 has been great, despite natural tragedies and the quakes and the fact humans still treat our poor planet so stupidly.
Cern has found Higgs’ Boson and science is taking a step further towards the infinite; my job and K’s are pretty solidly set up; I am ready to have a super fulfilled incoming year but at the same time we have already planned where to go for my Birthday; K’s one; our anniversary month; and just about in a month and a half we will be staying quite a lot in the USA and while there, beside work and family time and some other stuff we will check Maroon 5 live in a series of gigs.
Madison Square Garden… we gotcha ;)
I love to be as organized as possible… so I feel fine in knowing pretty much already all of the major schedule for 2013…
But that won’t mean if some novelty sneaks in I won’t be delighted about it ;)
Talking about babies, before I go detailing as per usual the post also about them, let me share (we still in festive mood) the free package of gifts iTunes gave of them just the other day, because that stays in between personal stuff and chronicles doesn’t it? ;).
This one is the package I am talking of:
But before I dwell into M5 more let me just say that in short form I am grateful for all that 2012 has been because of:
1) Karim (no need to say anything else right?);
2) Our families and their always amazing support;
4) My crew;
5) His crew;
6) The fact both mashed amazingly in one of the best Summer vacations we’ve ever had in Southern Italy;
7) The fact that I keep having the best job I could have possibly dreamed for;
8) K’s achievements this year which have made all of the families so proud;
Oh, and then as usual THANK YOU for Curiosity/Traveling/Art/Music.
I could never live without any of those.
To those who keep hinting at the subject… the answer is NOT.
Don’t expect a pregnancy by yours truly ANYTIME soon ;).
So 2013 won’t be the Year of The Child Of Destiny (and I don’t mean Blue Ivy’s supposed brother/sister).
Give up to the plan because K&I just don’t look out for kids (yet) :)
It’s just that we keep on willing to do some things yet which would be problematic to do with little kids or infants to take care after.
We have a very clear idea on what it takes to be a parent and we are not ready to completely revolution our existences yet with that choice.
A thing instead we will definitely do will be to keep on cheering to THIS MAN and his impact on the sport we both love so dearly.
Laadies and Gentlemen, BOW to His Perfection Of Athletic Strive:
I think I have covered it all and most important… I have to move through this writing of a post quickly or when little Eva will come she will try to write herself onto the iPad ;)
She is already very attracted to technology and since her mum and techs are like water and oil, and her dad and techs are like fire and paper, I suppose she is taking already hints from her devoted Auntie Z., namely Geek Of The Universe ;)
So okay, let’s move!
I think it’s time to switch and start to teach you about how also Maroon 5 shall be VERY fond of this year which has just started to fade.
I have many and many excerpts that testify a WONDERFUL charting year for them; Overexposed is the TENTH best selling album WORLDWIDE and after the Billboard Charts for the year 2012 have surfaced it’s clear that the guys are back with a vengeance and stronger than ever.
These up above were the worldwide charts, which yet don’t even include the last week of the year, in which both their Album and their songs are continuously increasing in copies sold ;)
Please note that also the following Year-To-Date chart in Billboard covers only from December 2011 to the full of NOVEMBER 2012 so actually Overexposed, Payphone and One More Night (and also Moves Like Jagger…*sigh*) actually sold EVEN MORE and were at HIGHER position by the time the World Charts were completed.
This is the Billboard Triumph (note also how Adam charted also with Gym Class Heroes’ “Stereo Hearts” collaboration…) of beloved Maroon 5 this year 2012:
Overexposed is practically already PLATINUM in the USA… it’s past easily the 900.000 copies sold already before Xmas sales so it’s just a matter of a couple of weeks before the very prestigious mark is past (all of their sets have been Platinum and Multi Platinum in their home Country); worldwide, the set is well over 2.2 millions copies already and in these times of selling struggles it’s an amazing achievement especially because it has been available ONLY after the end of June, so it has sold so much (and deservingly, I love the album because it’s pop perfection) in just 6 months on sale (and unlike what it happened with Pink’s set they have almost never had a continuous discount sale policy going on).
Maroon 5 have been a force to be reckoned with in charts since their debut, so it’s a great thing that a decade later they keep being selling this strong, and that they have had multiple number one hits from EACH era of them.
This is amazing, and it’s testified by Year-To-End charts worldwide also this 2012, with Payphone and One More Night (as well as STILL Moves Like Jagger, which you know tho I am not happy about) being a wonderful double diamonds pair encrusted in their 10-years-of-successes crown.
They are the only BAND achieving the end to date chart with TWO songs in the worldwide Top Ten of Singles.
I still not happy about the fact they chose Daylight as third single… the song is not really one of the best in Overexposed and the fact they decided to kill its chance of moderate success even more with a video which is far too long and absolutely unappealing to the masses (it’s not particularly original either, if I have to confess) makes me cringe…
But eh, we’re talking about the band who decided to not release either Stutter or Nothing Lasts Forever or The Sun from previous albums so it’s clear they like to kill their best momentum regularly, don’t they? ;).
I think eventually the song might reach somewhere between 15/10th position on the charts out of the fact airplay will be on their side like it always happens, but I get scared when I hear Daylight is Adam’s fav song on the album (well, his fav on the previous ones were the similarly super-boring Never Gonna Leave This Bed and Won’t Go Home Without You so I shall be used by now on his not so great picks… *sigh*), because it’s honestly so vanilla it’s hard to get passionate about it (I do like his vocals on it tho… when he hits his lower register I always appreciate).
It’s not that Daylight is a bad song… it is a very nice song but nowhere near as smashing regarding its single potential as Doin’ Dirt, The Man Who Never Lied, Wipe Your Eyes and of course the best pop song on the album, the pop perfection which is Lucky Strike are.
Beside the chart triumph (which hopefully Daylight won’t ruin anytime soon) in December it happened a lot to our kids.
We have to start with the fact they were supposed to play as the surprise act KIIS LA Radio Jingle Ball… but as Adam addressed via twitter his throat was damaged so they had to pull out…
Only James and PJ actually went there, because Adam had to save his vocal chords for something way more important (even though fans were cute to him and probably hated the fact Will.I.Am substitued Maroon 5 – ewww -)…
The way more important event Adam had to save his voice for was of course the Nashville based Grammy Nomination Concert Broadcast:
Now his voice was still quite affected BUT the important thing was of course that Maroon 5 GOT TWO NODS!!!!
And then it’s always amazing to look at the guys onstage and it pumps me for next year!!!
I am pretty convinced Fun. will take home all Maroon 5 have also been nominated for (the fact they are also up for Album and Song Of The Year easily tells me that) but the fact Payphone and ALSO Overexposed were reckoned in such a crowded and full year for pop is AMAZING!!!!!
It also testifies that my taste is awesome because I have always said Overexposed is a WONDERFUL pop record (I like how dear Jonah Hill got immediate cheer for his bro Adam… so cute ;)) :)
I never fail musically… and all the nominations are amazing to my taste this year; best bit being the obvious fact dreadful Bieber was snubbed, as deserved, and also I am happy James’ girlfriend Ali Tamposi (a dear friend of Behati now) got her moment of shine in the noms too as an author – James is so proud of her!) ;)
Never to stay too quiet, Adam went to Chelsea Lately during the festive episodes (wearing again a dapper suit) to clarify among other stuff (or to reinforce) some statements out of December GQ which put him in a boiling seat:
Adam doesn’t hate the kid Honey Boo Boo… he hates the exploiting of a kid by his parents for fame.
put this in your mind when reading December GQ where he put those on his personal Punch list:
I laugh when really not smart people blast him for opinions which are actually quite deep and rightful (although sure he could use a little less of cursing when stating them… but he’s unfiltered and he won’t restrain for the sake of appearances…); surely he is proud of his opinions, in every way, and he won’t bend at his ideas for keeping public quiet.
I love Adam’s realness there; I appreciate his honesty more and more.
I love how he won’t dismiss his deep belief about how life shall be, I love how he won’t hide his political stances for the sake of selling more in general; I love how he will keep tellin in your face that he believes half of the tv the general public watches and love is simply pure trash damaging brains…
Now if he only would step off that awful Karaoke show too… I could finally be COMPLETELY proud.
I am up for him to keep on trying acting like in AHS though… I also welcome possible guest starring appearances in Sons Of Anarchy, and anything related with comedy :)
Ops… before I forget.. here’s the scan of the magazine I couldn’t put on last post I was talking of my likes… the Tv Guide Hottest List number:
I just adore everything amazing which is happening to Adam instead because in my book (and even tho so many times he does his best to make me regret my admire,
The Fuckery That Awful Karaoke Show that thing being the best reason so far to this type of dismantling feeling) he is just so talented and full of qualities… I love how he also stays true to his Jewish roots even tho he doesn’t fake a Belief which is not fully his (and also this is so honest and real, it makes me adore the person he is).
Then of course… Adam is handsome.
There’s no other possible way to put it in words ban to state the obvious: he’s gorgeous and he also gets more attractive with age (darn you devil! ;)).
This is also getting noticed multiple and multiple times, not so surprisingly, in many of the years end countdown of various sorts.
But being really good looking (also in a very European way, which doubles the effect to me) is only one of his many qualities, truth be told.
I knew since I first knew about Maroon 5 in 2003 ;).
I also really love the guys in Maroon 5 because their creativity spreads and never gets too constricted in just one shell, may that shell even be their own band.
So I am proud and happy about how James is experiencing indie success with JJAMZ (Katy Perry is a stan for them ;)) and how they have even opened for No Doubt when Maroon 5 came back from Nashville.
It’s not a surprise given the strict relationship and friendship Maroon 5 have with both katy and No Doubt guys but still always a good thing.
Then of course Adam is THE KING of Hip Hop collaboration since the time he did Live Again with the Ying Yang Twins:
Which is why he collaborated lately with 50 Cent on the amazing (and still underrated yet) My Life.
Here’s Fiddy speaking of this all: Listen and read ;):
It was also due to have Adam featured both in Wiz Khalifa and The Game’s latest efforts.
But while the Wiz thing will surface later, so I was not surprised it was not yet included in his O.N.I.F.C. album yet, I actually went mumbling when after having even gotten a title for it in Rolling Stone Magazine, Adam and The Game’s “EPIC” collaboration on his just dropped Jesus Piece was nowhere to be found.
I guessed it was all due to The Game’s feud with 50 Cent and the fact My Life had just dropped, but (since I may not have been the only one questioning the rapper about it, wondering if thing got dread between Adam and him) The Game was quick in erasing doubts about it all (and now I wonder if the supposed awesome track he did with Adam, will lately see the green light to be outed, which I hope of course):
I love the way rappers (even the most badasses of them) always love Adam invariably ;)
There’s something so gangsta about him they cannot refute? ;)
I know there is ;)
He’s so badass he has an ANGEL for girlfriend and yes, that is what he deserves for being a great artist (even though he would say he’s not) and a good man, and I say this knowing he has certain flaws, but that makes him just more pleasant to me, as anybody has some (well I haven’t got any, but you know I’m unique ;) – please detect some irony ok? -).
Yes, Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo are still together and still happy and still VERY RECLUSIVE about their own love (the way it should be).
I hope this relationship goes throughout the incoming new year as greatly and as secretly as it has been driven for the whole of May / June / July / August / September / October / November / December of 2012.
Let her wish us a great holiday time through her Angel status ;):
The perfection of Behati (both in herself and as Adam’s better half) is indeed another thing I am VERY grateful about regarding this 2012 which is ready to end.
She has ALL of my approvals as Adam’s girlfriend and again in this December she has proved how splendid and fit for the coveted, but also very uneasy role of being Adam’s receptacle of passion&love she is and she has proved this repeatedly (again… and again… and again… always topping what I thought couldn’t even be improved… always witnessing how Bee is able to do it instead).
This A.P.W.T.C.S.A.P.C (African Princess With The Contagious Smile And Perfect Cheekbones, if you wonder ;) and measurements of a goddess, as stated by FabSugar) has rescued Adam from the darkest of fake poseur pretenders to bring him back to life, to a marvelous mood, to a very private and real personal life, and to love and serenity:
She has spent with Adam quite a LOT of time but again, she just didn’t let the world sneak in.
Which I think is why his family likes her the way they do (not that I believe they are pushing Adam to marry… they would NEVER step into his life that way, and moreover we know Adam is not keen to marry, especially until he has this kind of ongoing career… but sure Behati is loved by the whole of Adam’s family very much, of this I have a certain notion).
I laugh when people say she doesn’t work.
She does it, just the amount she needs to, and then she does what she wants, which in her case since May is being by her handsome, super sexy and adorable boyfriend’s side.
Would you do any differently BEING IN LOVE FOR REAL LIKE SHE IS?
I mean… would YOU waste I am not saying days… but even MINUTES away from THIS, especially when you are in the position of being there to have sex with him at any given time (my husband knows what i think of Adam ;) he knows this so I can say it loudly ;) and he’s not jealous ;)):
I guess not.
And that’s why she stays by his side at any given time and fights for those minutes ;)
The way anyone who claims to be a red-blooded female would ;) (I guess Behati REALLY likes sex too ;) )
I guess if you are in love and care about your relationship, you work and then you miss not even a minute before being back with the one who owns your heart.
If Behati wouldn’t… if she would waste time away from him when she is not doing her things… well that would mean she were not in love.
But that’s not her case ;).
Behati works and does what she has to, don’t worry… it’s just that she is not pimpin herself, maybe because she is down to Earth for real and not for publicity ;) and thinks people will see the fruits of her work when they come out, without no need to advertise herself constantly ;).
As you see from her pics then, she loves music and photography (and animals ;)) so her interests are just way wider than just her job as a model, and maybe she likes to tweet more about those things in her life than let people updated on her sets locations…
But yeah, she works ;) she does well enough yep.
Behati for instance has also worked WHILE being in Los Angeles aside Adam, both in November and in December, courtesy of this man with the help of whom she has done more shots for VS and also NEXT UK in those occasions too:
She is contracted by VS, and she might as well live it off ONLY her Angel status, as that contract is by far the most lucrative one in fashion.
But it’s not like she has ONLY that at the moment… she is also STILL the face of NEXT UK and in fact in December she had to work also on that.
She has not to rush the world for catching a not so big dime unlike others…
She is doing fine and she has already from 2008 the contract ALL models would KILL to have.
Girl is right where she stands… She has worked always since the start and just to recall some good things… take this old video always cute which explains you who Behati is:
But let’s go in order.
Behati left Adam’s side in Los Angeles (he was keeping doing THAT Karaoke Show live so he couldn’t join her there) to be in New York for the promotion of Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show broadcast.
But before that, as you know, she had her first acting role displayed in Hawaii 5-0 which she promoted as well along her fellow Angel Alessandra:
After that (I loved how grateful she was for the opportunity… she literally didn’t know before the taping of the show in November she would have been cast, and she flew in Hawaii after the taping directly… so cute! Of course this acting opportunity made her immediately more talked about from UK to France to Italy (love it!) and beyond but she sure did a great job for being someone who never even tried acting before or thought she would…) she had a series of major tv appearances for the promotion of the show, and that is a wonderful way to see her bubbly, lively, amazingly fresh personality&face working the cameras with natural charme and zero fronting.
Ratings were really good and so was the feedback, so much the showrunner expresses delight over her and to her :) :
I really love her way to be.
She comes off as really relatable and with zero pretentiousness about her.
To be naturally funny and not stuck up at all must play a major role on why Adam’s been so attached to her (especially in contrast with his miserable past earlier this year):
And of course there is the show.
Well, Behati out of Pink and into the main line meant essentially that Pink was awful without her and she SHONE as a bright diamond in her three outfits inn the other segments.
Many were surprised she transitioned so well into the main sexy Angel role and not anymore the teeny Pink one but.. are you serious?
Of course she shone and was super sexy… and of course now that she is 23 she can also rock the more womanly main lines of VS… she is a tomboy, but she is also extraordinarily feminine and beautiful.
She’s Adam Levine’s choice for companionship then, and he could never be with someone not sexy (it’s just that Behati is not only sexy… she is so much more than just sexy and moreover she does sexy very classy and without looking or moving like a pornstar, always keeping her cool without looking like she’s trying way too hard ;)):
She basically was one of the standout of the whole thing, as she deserved to be (and well… she can steal the spot by herself, no need of her man to get limelight…)
Adam was working for the his show live in Los Angeles while his woman was kickin ass left and right, but sure he is proud of her and of the fact she doesn’t need him to get recognition.
Also I laughed so much when she cutely hinted in the interviews that she “Loves dating.. dating is the best thing ever!” as the unique hint that she gave about the state of her personal life ;).
I am also glad she consoled poor Erin after her breakup with modelizer Di Caprio… poor Erin, if she would have been more discreet she would have probably ended marrying him (so are saying supposed informed people… I don’t really think Leo will marry any soon ;)).
But back at Bee…
I get distraught easily it seems today ;)
Must be the snow around ;)
On december 6th, while Adam and Maroon 5 were in Nashville for the Grammy gig, Behati optimized her time doing another job (you know… because she does nothing with her life as idiots say ;)).
That job is something we don’t know anything about, beside the fact she did shot with a famous model actor from The Games of Thrones ( I am curious to know about this, really :)).
Then even if people didn’t get informed about it, beside a sort of cryptic little tweet between Adam and Behati sharing views on the Paleo Diet and the state of pumpkins in that type of prescriptive diet (only educated people could guess ;)), she went VERY quickly back to her man’s side before having to fly away again, direction Miami, for another shooting for NEXT UK with the dear Ben Watts (this always because she doesn’t work right? ;)).
I admire so much the way she is capable to work and still never miss out on her role of girlfriend.
It’s so much that she is showing in these months…
I never get how people can hate on her… but yes, jealousy is a beast I guess.
She shared a few pictures from her working time in Miami, and the fact she was sharing those instead of private ones (and the fact she doesn’t call paparazzi up for catchin herself along with Adam when they are together) made the usual crazy people start to guess she might have no longer been in the blessed spot of being Levine’s girlfriend.
Like she has EVER tweeted anything personal before…
*sigh* ;) will the haters ever learn?
But more on that later ;)…
But of course Behati was there just doing work and having fun because she is a natural cheerful person and very ready to be with friends type of girl and it’s the easiest of things to get attached to her and want to spend time with her.
While in there Ben Watts (who’s very fond of Behati) shared two videos with her.
One was a cheerful holiday video with the typical Ben Watts’ style (quite La Chapelle but sassier) which was also comprehensive of parts with Bee which were recorded in Los Angeles in November AND December:
Then this little funny gem which had me rolling and which is so essentially Behati:
When she tweeted that she was about to take a trip, and the work was clearly on the verge of completion, it started some drama: people interpreted her tweets (as per usual) the wrong way, and others thought she would have headed to South Africa for holidays.
Except she did not.
She flew immediately… guess where?
Right where she BELONGS, namely by Adam’s side.
In Los Angeles again.
No time wasted.
No tricks around.
Work done… ticket held, airplane set…
And she was right beside her love again.
“If That Ain’t Love Then I Don’T Know What Love Is…” ;)
Once again she managed to pass every day there undercover; she went to all tapings of
The Fuckery that thing but of course without making anybody aware outside of her real life people and Adam’s people (which are now hers as well, deal with this fact because this is how it is); she stayed all holidays with Adam and his family and the only glimpses of her (beside the private pictures at The Voice Wrap Party which you can see randomly here too, and a funny note on some strange tweets she tweeted that night she lately left ;)) and the only picture paps were able to snap was THIS:
So many days together in the town of paps and they never get sneaked into.
It’s easy not to get papped when you don’t call the paps up… and Behati and Adam WOULD NEVAH call the scum of the Earth to snap them because well… they don’t need that trash and they are secure in their real love ;) so much they keep it for themselves and don’t display it for the public.
Because THEIR LOVE IS NOT A PUBLIC ISSUE… Their love is a real feeling they have and protect from intrusive watch, which is exactly how they will make it stronger.
There was some major hilarity coming also from the fact Adam didn’t take Behati at the Lakers Xmas game (that we WOOOOOOON yes despite some scary referees;)), because naive (or just plain misinformed/not so bright) people were assuming just because Behati was clearly there in LA with Adam, he would have taken her there (because she would rush for a photo op with him right? ah, no… wait: that is NOT Behati’s habit… I vaguely remember that was the norm earlier though with some other people maybe).
Little note for all the usual stupid haters of Bee who have NO CLUE whatsoever on Adam’s – very routinely in many cases – patterns of life.
Listen up, bunch of not so bright people: Adam Levine has ALWAYS taken his closest family members (and signed: especially grandparents) on Xmas Lakers games as his guests.
Adam cherishes his family a LOT, and that is his way to rewards his eldest, by keeping them close and honor them in special days.
When he didn’t bring his grandpa to Staples Center last Xmas it was because he was forced by his then very untrue “girlfriend” to bring her instead, in such an obnoxious way he couldn’t refuse it.
They were already done by then as a couple by Xmas 25th of 2011, they had already falloffs in rows and quarrels leading to breakups and she didn’t receive the ring she wanted for Xmas again and that was the first game of NBA after 2011 lockout so she needed BADLY some photo ops (her real reason to be with Adam) (especially considering it was clear the couple wouldn’t last, so she had to milk Adam a bit more as much as she could then) therefore she forced Adam to take her there instead of his grandpa.
But it wouldn’t have happened if Adam wouldn’t have been pushed hard for the sake of tranquility to switch his usual Xmas choices as for partners to bring courtside that day (whenever you don’t believe the fact that relationship was already a front by last December, just listen to Overexposed… The Man Who Never Lied was written those days, along Doin’ Dirt ;)).
Just to reinforce this explanation, please notice that in 2010, when that couple was still solid (but I guess his previous girlfriend was still in it only for the fame even then, if all the reports I got about her after the split are true… or even if only half of them are), this was whom Adam went with at Xmas game… guess who?
Now the interesting bit you shall take out from the article excerpt I wrote back then is that while Adam’s previous girlfriend went to the movies WITH HER FRIENDS that Xmas of 2010 when she could not exploit Adam on the Lakers court for photo ops Behati went as well to the movies BUT she went there with Adam’s MUM and Adam’s brother:
And of course the amount of tweets by her, about all of this family time she is sharing once again in December with Levines and Noahs are ZERO: others tweets… never does Behati.
Because she cares and protects the realness of her relationship and would never dare to break Levines & Noahs’ request for privacy, so it’s up to them share, but she would never ever break their will of protection for their personal lives.
This is amazing, especially now that Adam is one of the most popular celebrities in the world and she could so easily gain so much more fame just by sharing a bit of his private life around (others have mastered the technique in the past, with obvious fame reward… but Bee doesn’t look out for that… she looks after Adam).
Adam is in the list of darn CNN celebrities of the year 2012… and yet Behati Prinsloo, his girlfriend of 8 months almost constantly spent by his side, has never ever tried to use his name in her favor. NEVER YET.
Which is why Adam’s family likes her and allows her a tad of things, unlike what happened before with other people.
Behati is also treasured by all of Adam’s friends, all of his protegees and protegees of friends and has developed special relationships with James’ girlfriend too; I love to get surprised for instance by Milo’s tweets about their ways to bond, just like when he shared the Xmas Tree Trimming party pics on Instagram.
But the point is Behati deserves all this, because SHE IS TRUE to Adam, she has never ever used him, and she is always there for him: it’s basically already 8 months they are together and out of these 8 months she has spent a good 5 to 6 with him constantly (an impressive percentage, which speaks volumes: she works, she executes her things then no matter what she joins him back wherever and whenever possible and sometimes she does it even when it’s uneasy or crazy to do so, for even just a weekend like it did happen this December in between heavy working schedules. Basically Behati is the perfect girlfriend for Adam. And I LOVE IT).
Take this video detailing the couple history in this very busy December (busy for both… but still they managed 3 out of 4 weeks together IN FULL… round of applauses again ;)):
Just to understand how much Bee is like Adam and despise paps, look at the face she made (or at the one she DIDN’T) when she was snapped stepping into Adam’s car in the streets of LA on December 27th:
Little side note: as this couple is completely private, stupid obnoxious people keep falter and freak anytime for a few days there are not news of them together.
I say this because around the middle of the month I got crazy people’s requests about my acknowledge of the status of Adam & Bee’s coupling, just because a few days before I had written to my friend that Adam had been at Teddy’s on December 6th (like people cannot have fun with friends once they are coupled… and yes, Teddy’s is a special place for Adam but he got there cos it was renewed to party with crew after he went back from Nashville and the Grammy Nomination gig… is that a crime?).
This was some of the pics I got sent about his Teddy’s outing but NO ONE reported to me he did ANYTHING wrong or disrespectful to his lover there:
Since Behati was yet working that day and since (as usual) when the pair re-met for a super quick hot time in between her working duties (she went also to Miami to shoot another NEXT UK campaign just hours after they could re-embrace) they DIDN’T INFORM the world (and why should have they…) beside some usually amazing cryptic tweets in their own language people keep NOT understanding (and which I find amazing) crazy obsessed people started to question the state of their relationship (again… just because I guess they have no life of their own?).
Also, I have been told, because some stupid kid had believed words put on a FAKE Adam’s Facebook and Instagram.
LITTLE NEWS, idiots: ADAM HAS NO FACEBOOK AND NO INSTAGRAM.
You stupid little people please go check the header of OFFICIAL MAROON 5 & MEMBERS list of their REAL social accounts by clicking on (guess what?) the OFFICIAL site and just take a look… ADAM HAS NO FACEBOOK NOR INSTAGRAM:
Sadly, since brain is (way too often) a quality miss by way too many people, the fact (I repeat: as USUAL) Behati and Adam don’t share their lives for strangers, I got these requests by people (some of them were polite and not harassing though) which I answered the only way I could: namely, that I had no clue about their couple’s state because it’s not my biz, but only theirs, and that people should stop have interest in what they clearly want to remain PRIVATE .
I got later informed how crazy freaks created multiple twitter accounts harassing on Adam blaming him for having fun after dumping Behati (?), while some other crazy ones were harassing Behati telling her how happy they were Adam had finally dumped her (?).
THIS IS INSANE and people need to get a life.
Now… PLEASE listen.
BEHATI and ADAM are together NOT for the fans; they have no duty towards fans about informing them about the state of their relationship; this because the fans are so regarding THEIR JOBS (which are public) but the fact is those fans have NO RIGHTS AT ALL to know about their lives together because ADAM and BEE’s life is THEIR OWN THING, and it’s a PRIVATE thing, not a public one.
Again… Adam is a VERY reserved person.
Anytime he states he can’t stand reality shows about celebrities doing stupid things strangers shouldn’t witness or be interested in (KartTrashian, anyone?) or the way he has stated MANY times he hates kids pageant contests and even more reality TV about the life of kids (yeah, Honey boo Boo and that awful family exploiting), can’t you realize he says it all because he CLEARLY thinks private life shall be PRIVATE, this even if (or even more if) you are a celebrity?
Sure, in his previous relationship he was FORCED to public display his lovelife because that was all his former “girlfriend” was interested in and he fell for her and her request before getting back to his proper senses… but lucky for him now Behati is in the relationship for THE TRUTH of it and for HIM and not his fame, so he can be as private as he likes to be and this means NO PHOTO OPS staged by his half calling paparazzi, no tweets to reveal everything , no “shows for crowds”.
And THIS IS HOW A REAL RELATIONSHIP must work.
This is why Adam’s family is so fond of Behati.
This is why I hope this lasts a lot for them (and I repeat for the hundredth time: if it would end tomorrow, still the story between Adam and Bee would have been THE BEST RELATIONSHIP he has had so far in his – famous – life for how true and sincere it was on her part for sure); because Behati is there for Adam for real, and this is a pretty new thing for him, who’s always been used so much in recent years.
All of the fans who crave for their privacy to be outed… please get a life of yourself and stop this insanity. They don’t owe a thing that is private to their fans (and true fans would never claim they do); they owe to fans their public works and jobs, but there is a line to never be crossed nonetheless by fans and that line is the real life of the person(s) they follow.
That doesn’t belong to anybody but the people involved.
End of it.
Just wish A&B well and be happy for them and mind your own business.
They won’t share their lives with fans… and if you were real fans you would actually BE HAPPY about this.
By now after so many months that they are together and this reserved behavior is the norm, everyone shall be used to this, then why you are not?
You should be happy that they protect their life and love so strictly, because that makes them genuine to each other…
I definitely am happy about that because this is how Adam has always been before he got so much exploited for two years prior Behati arrived to save him (I don’t blame him for having been so hardly fooled by that previous person because I as well got fooled by her and believed for a longtime she was real and true, and despite having my fashion-related mates constantly putting me on guard about her I kept trusting she did actually care about Adam, while she was absolutely not interested in him but only in the push he would have graced her name in the USA with… I have to reckon how sometimes my fondness for looks deceives me so I can’t blame Adam for having the same weaknesses ;)).
It’s so much healthier for famous people to keep their most important things in life inside a private fence… so much of the famous’ lives has to be under scrutiny and that generally ruins it all… cherish the fact Adam has found somebody who takes care also of his need of keeping his love private because this makes it a million times more secure and real.
And then, now and forever (I wonder why I have to keep writing this so much as of late)… please everyone STOP considering my blog like a source, or stop asking me facts as I were better informed.
Sure, it happens that sometimes I know some things related to life of celebrities but this happens because due to my happy position in life, and the fact I am quite wealthy I can share the environments with some of them or it happens that I know people who are in the same circles BUT that doesn’t mean I have or I am a “source”, much less that I want this blog to be considered a “celebrity” or “gossip” blog.
THIS IS MY LIFE BLOG.
Here I write about what I like and since I do like Maroon 5 and Adam (since a decade by now) it happens that i write about them but at NO RATE this is a “source” nor I am so stop treat me and here as it would be.
I am not in for racking readers so if you don’t think this suits you just leave.
This blog is only meant to be a (surely not life long) little memory of myself and about myself.
And my likes.
It’s NOT a celebrity/gossip blog.
Can you all please stop trying to catch from here things that are not supposed to belong here, and most of all, can you just stop trying to portray me as a gossip blogger?
There are a very few things that I dislike more than gossip bloggers in fact.
Let’s move on… ;)
Now just to prove that here I can write about whatever I like or dislike, let me have a moment of INFINITE LOLING because I have been recently informed by all of my friends who watch
The Fuckery That Karaoke Show that thing on how there are people who would like and who actively push for a couple Adam Levine + Christina Aguilera.
Pardon me if I am just in tears of laughter even now that I write this.
Adam with super short, super fat Christina “Xtina” Aguilera??
Ahahahahha hahahahah ahaha…. I can’t even begin to process how absolutely hilarious this is (I mean… to even project this as anyone with brain’s dream scenario… lmao).
Beside the fact Adam probably doesn’t even like her as person, and put on a good front only for the sake of his (dreadful) tv show, waiting for her to finally exit it after this season, I mean… ARE YOU SERIOUS?
Do you know which types Adam likes?
I don’t really realize how people can be so naive to think he would EVER date “regular” chicks.
Why should he?
He never did not even when he was a struggling nobody, because his background still wealthy and he is born and raised in LA, which means by default you don’t really look out for anything less than someone REALLY thin and pretty.
You REALLY think he would EVER consider a 5’2” (or even less) woman of 30 with the weight and shape (by now) of a whale to be his?
The more I try to picture the situation, the more I laugh.
I can’t stop…
ahahahha… I can’t:
This kind of things just make me roll up my eyes so much.
Face it people: Adam likes the model type.
Always had, always will.
He loves people with legs long (VERY long) and thin to climb on them like a tree.
Remember his then girlfriend Kelly in This Love video? remember the way he caresses her legs there? Remember that touch and be assured (I mean… REALLY be, because that is a first-hand notion I can put my entire body on flames for) that for being with Adam Levine, even for a quick time, the last thing you have to be is fat.
Let alone mildly obese as poor Aguilera is now (but her voice is a treasure so my idea on her looks or the fact I don’t really like the way her personality seems to be – I say seems because I do NOT know her and I don’t pretend to – doesn’t affect my idea about her as a very talented singer, this better be clear).
Back to more real stuff now and sorry for the break-in but I laughed so hard when my friends (practically all of them unfortunately watch that awful tv show so they get easily taken by people debating on the outputs of it, and this insane “Adamtina” – ewwwwwww the name – seems one of the most talked about out of them ) told me this that I had to write something about it.
I still laughing right this moment if you wonder ;).
While we are at it, after the latest shots of Behati for VS Swim 2013 (better commented in stylish French ;) oui), take also her latest for the Spring campaign of NEXT UK:
She’s so fresh and cute :)
So natural… there’s absolutely ZERO sham or ploy in her and this I think is also why Adam gifted her a living creature for Xmas, beside some other things…
He gave her that adorable tea-cup pig (I melt about it if I may add) because he knows she is lovingly and can take care of a creature, the same way she has been taking so well care of him for all these months.
I wonder if Adam also gifted Behati with “tons of vintage (rock) t-shirts” as she so cutely asked when interviewed for the magazines pre- VSFS 2012 :
They are in Las Vegas right now for Maroon 5 stint at Mandalay Bay Resort…
I hope Behati was able to cross patterns with her dear Coco Rocha in Las Vegas last night (Coco went away just a few hours ago from there but the two have been in the same town for at least 24 hours so there was hopefully a met up :) ) because it’s a longtime Coco misses her Bee being her always by Adam’s side and rarely in New York (and when Bee was there, Coco was away).
If you have doubts, look how Adam left the gig this past night:
This is a lil collage of this past night concert (not that after Adam dressed up for dining at Aureole Wine Lounge in the hotel… with whom? ;) as usual they are never there to be caught so don’t freak if you don’t hear reports but they were there together and all loved up and as usual glued to one another the way they are when no one beside their people are with them… I am sure they took great care of each other this past night ;)… just like ANY OTHER night ;) ):
I hope they can have a great New Years’ Eve (and maybe they won’t be forced to spend it in New York as maybe the Adam’s part in NBC NYE special are taped? I hope so… he has worked enough for them in this 2012 he deserves free time. Certainly the Chelsea Lately he is in days after is a rerun so he could be as well in Africa by 2013… and sure it must be time to fly together in South Africa maybe? We’ll see; it’s only their choice of course :))… as well as I wish the same to every single one of my babies Maroon (past and present and future… because it’s clear Jesse is starting to re-adjust at the idea of getting back with them and I ADORE this perspective :)) and their significant others.
I wish them the best and to have a 2013 in everything as great to them as 2012 was.
The same I wish to myself & my perfect hubby all of our family & friends and what else?
I guess it’s all.
Have everyone a super happy and super fun (and super safe also… SEXY, but safe ok? ;)) End and Start of The Year and catch you sometimes in a month or so ;)
Happy Life and Farewell to 2012… you’ve been REALLY good dear, Hope your brother 2013 can follow through as greatly ;)
Missus Z. :)
This is nothing more than a little way to say “Happy Xmas” around.
And being this MY blog, and being this MY world, I decided to do this through what makes me feel always… any possible way ;)
To wish the world a happy Xmas (but not yet a wonderful New year because before Year ends I will properly update the blog… with my life, my likes and stuff, with a recap of the wonderful 2012 Maroon 5 have had, with Behati and Adam and their strong ongoing love all out of paparazzi’s reach, and with much more… JUST that it will be then and not now ;)) I put up for you all to enjoy THE BEST CONCERT I haven’t been to – and trust me I wish I had the tickets for it!!! – which I hope inspires you all the most positive charge for these holidays.
It’s a gift and I hope you appreciate.
Please, buy the album as I have immediately done too or donate directly from the site so that you can help those in needs.
Christmas shall essentially be a great chance for everybody to be there for others.
And it’s be great if Xmas could happen actually every… week for it ;)
Happy Xmas time.
See you in a few days for the REAL blog update and the farewell to 2012 :)
Missus Z. :)
