Adam Levine’s gross video
We are nearing the end of Adam Levine’s reign as Sexiest Man Alive. Thanks God. I don’t get it. I have never gotten it. Not the music, not him.
The video for Maroon 5’s Animals was just released today featuring Adam’s real-life wife, Behati Prinsloo. He’s her stalker. And he sneaks up on her and smells her. And cuts out pictures of her and jerks off in a slaughterhouse thinking about her but, really, what he wants to show you is his pelvic V.
Then, even though she’s not really into him, he imagines them f-cking. And the suggestion here is that he f-cks real good. And so the stalker becomes…
I’m supposed to believe that the audience’s takeaway is that he’s a sick f-ck and she should stay away from him? Or am I supposed to believe that if she’d only pay attention to him she’d have the best sex of her life and more orgasms that she could ever dream of?
If I’m confused about it, and I’m a dried up old c-nt, what’s a 20 year old young woman supposed to think?
When a guy is obsessed with you to this extreme, it should never, EVER be sexy. And if there’s any hint of sexy in that message, any whisper of it, any chance that someone could interpret it that way, any sliver of a chance that someone could possibly think that STALKING IS BAD BAD BAD, isn’t the message fundamentally wrong? Why do we keep condoning it, especially if that guy is – allegedly – good looking and a rock star?
