Creepy Stalker Adam Levine Expecting Baby Girl

OK, maybe it’s NOT fair to label Adam a creepy stalker just because he made a video where he plays a creepy stalker (plus makes out with his wife in a literal blood bath.)

But I do have high hopes that the way Adam thinks about women will change a bit once he has a daughter of his own – this seems to happen to a lot of men. Remember when he said this to Details Magazine?

There are two kinds of men. There are men who are f**king misogynist pigs, and then there are men who really love women, who think they’re the most amazing people in the world. And that’s me. Maybe the reason I was promiscuous, and wanted to sleep with a lot of them, is that I love them so much.

Riiiiiiiiight.

But, creepy or not, sources say he and wife Behati Prinsloo are expecting a baby girl – and Behati hasn’t been shy with her pregnancy snaps on Instagram.

So far so good

Sounds like Adam can’t wait to be a dad. When E! News asked him how many kids he’d like to have, he responded “Like 17. Is that reasonable?” Proving he still has a ways to go with understanding women.

Life Is Just A Party, And Parties Aren’t Meant To Last

One more unforgettable Prince moment. Covering Radiohead‘s Creep at Coachella 2008.

It’s so lonely without you here. Goodbye, Artist Formerly Known As Prince.

Celebrate his life with us – we’ve collected his greats, along with songs he’s inspired and artists who have inspired him on Prince: DNA.

Coachella #FOMO?

I know, it’s tough to hear about all the amazing performances and guest appearances and collaborations happening at Coachella without feeling like you’re missing out. But you know what’s almost as good as being at Coachella? Watching Coachella performances from your own home, without having to stand around in the sun and pay 12 bucks for a beer.

Let’s start with the appearance everyone is talking about today – Kesha‘s surprise performance with Zedd. She sang the song she had been rumored to be working on with him for his last album, but it never saw the light of day. Until now.

I mean, the video quality isn’t great, but it’s probably as good – or better – than the view you’d actually have if you were sweating it out, crammed in like a sardine next to hundreds of other concert goers who forgot to wear deodorant.

Next up, Rihanna reunites with Calvin Harris.


OK, she sounds amazing, but here you are, enjoying that killer performance without dropping $400 a night on a hotel room that you’re probably splitting with at least 3 other friends who snore and use your toothpaste without asking.

How about when Halsey brought out Brandon Urie from Panic At The Disco? Pretty amazing.

You’re telling me you would rather be there in that crowd, with people wooing in your ear and drunkenly singing along while you’re just trying to enjoy the set, than enjoyably watching it after the fact in the relative comfort of your air conditioned home and/or office?

If you’re still really bummed about missing the fest this year, maybe this article from Money Magazine about the real cost of attending Coachella will help. And if you STILL can’t shake that #FOMO, the livestream is here, plus you can enjoy Slacker’s Coachella 2016 station, with all the biggest bands playing the fest. Listen with a 400° oven open in front of you after spending the entire day on your feet and you might be able to recreate the feeling of actually being there.

(Love, Parker, who is not all that into music fests, can you tell?)

Is Bieber The Next Liberace?

Justin Bieber tried to subtly show off his skill on the keys with a couple of Instagram posts this week. Do you recognize the song?


A video posted by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on

Right, Hotline Bling, pretty easy. But can you identify this one?


A video posted by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on

A liiiiiiiittle bit harder. It’s Rihanna, Work! And whether he posted these clips to show off or not, you’ve got to admit, The Biebs has talent on the keys.

But just in case schadenfreude is more your speed, you can also watch this clip of JB slipping and falling onstage last week.


here is a closer look ❤️

Not sure what he expected, performing on that wet stage, but they’d better get some yellow cones up around that mess STAT. (BTW, you can watch this fall over and over, from 4 different angles, here.)

Check out all the Justin we can give you, by law – plus more of your favourites – now on Today’s Hits!

Rihanna Might Be Trolling Us With Her New Footwear Design

I mean, I HOPE this is a joke.

That’s right, the latest design released by Rihanna’s Fenty line for Puma are these furry slip on sandals. The brand claims the shoe “is great to rock with socks or without, for the poolside or hanging around the city.”

WITH SOCKS. I mean, why not?

Let’s take a closer look.

Actually, sure, it looks great. Everyone will be wearing these come April 22nd. And lest you think they only come in black – OR that they’re strictly for women…


Get ready for summer!!!! #THEFURSLIDE will be available on Puma.com on April 22 at 10am  #FENTYXPUMA

Uh, you would be wrong. Grab a pair for yourself for only $80 later this month. And while you’re waiting, check out Rihanna’s latest, Kiss It Better, over on Today’s Hits!

Ibiza: Take Your Pills Elsewhere, Tourists

There’s at least one group that isn’t happy about the success of Mike Posner‘s song I Took A Pill In Ibiza – The Ibiza tourism board. The Spanish island is already fighting stereotypes that they’re all about partying and debauchery, and the song isn’t exactly helping.

Ibiza

Tourism director Vicent Ferrer is making an attempt at damage control by inviting Mike Posner to “discover Ibiza”, with a statement saying:

We have much more to offer besides the nightlife which is known worldwide. We have museums, beaches, culture, gastronomy. We have a wide offer but unfortunately we have been typecast this way.

Ferrer also notes people who want to take drugs or drink alcohol can be found at “any tourist destination” and he doesn’t think it’s fair for Ibiza to be “pigeonholed”. So STOP thinking it’s the greatest place in the world to party, already!

Check out everything Ibiza has to offer on their tourism page, and definitely DO NOT pay any attention to how much fun people are having in this video.

A Little Worried About JLo

So Jennifer Lopez gave us a preview of a new song on Instagram this week… but I’m a little worried, because it seems like she doesn’t really know the words?


A video posted by Jennifer Lopez (@jlo) on

Could be because she didn’t write it, Meghan Trainor did. But girl, you’ve got to practice your lip sync a little before you put it out there in public.

Because Nothing Says ‘Patriotism’ Like Grown Men Beating Each Other Up For Ratings

Fifth Harmony singing America The Beautiful at last weekend’s Wrestlemania 32 might be the classiest thing I have ever seen at a wrestling event. Which, tbh, is not a hard hurdle to clear.

I wish I could say that right after they finished, the ladies whipped off those evening gowns to reveal their own wrestling garb, and pulled some tag team maneuvers to see who was the toughest one in the band… but no.

There’s always next year.
