New Music Video: Maroon 5 “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt Like A Motherf*cker”

Maroon 5 dropped their latest music video last night, “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt Like A Motherf*cker.”

Sorry for the language; there is a “clean” version out there which replaces “Motherf****r” with “A-ha,” but this lyric is clearly the writer’s intent so I honor that. Feel free to skip if it’s not your thing.

I’m a big fan of the band, and especially Adam Levine (and his bare nakedness that we see a glimpse of in the beginning of the clip).

From the band’s new album V, released two weeks ago. Find it on iTunes here.

Adam Levine set to named People Magazine’s “Sexiet Man Alive”

Adam Levine, pictured here naked, is set to be People Magazine's next "Sexiest Man Alive"

Adam Levine is set to be named People’s Sexiest Man Alive, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The Voice judge and Maroon 5 lead singer will be revealed as the magazine’s choice next week.

Levine, who recently got engaged to Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo, has been included the “Sexiest Man Alive” issue in the past, but never as the top choice.

No word yet on if readers will be treated to a half-nude photo. Stay tuned.

The singer follows recent “Sexiest Man” honorees Channing Tatum, Bradley Cooper and Ryan Reynolds.

Adam Levine and his 70s porn vibe

A lot of folks envy Victoria Secret model Behati Prinsloo seeing as she’s engaged to Adam Levine and all that. But at least she’s kind enough to share those “special” moments with the rest of the world.

Behati posted a shot of Adam wearing nothing but underwear (well, okay, and sunglasses) to her Instagram, along with the caption. ”70′s porn called. It wants it’s vibe back. Immediately.”

Music video: Maroon 5 – “Love Somebody”

Back in the early 1980s, when music videos were a “new” thing, the creativity involved was a wide open frontier. So many possibilities.

Narrative, abstract, special effects… so many things to do.

Today, it’s hard to come up with something new, in my opinion.

And with that, I invite you to check out Maroon 5’s new video for their single “Love Somebody.”

With what ‘could’ be a fairly naked Adam Levine (in body paint and not much more) in what is one of the more creative expressions I’ve seen in a music video of late.

Happy Hump Day.
