Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine sexes it up for his new music video “Moves Like Jagger” featuring Christina Aguilera. And anytime Adam is shirtless for over two minutes, he totally has my undivided attention.
The much-anticipated video finally made its debut online late last night, and it was totally worth the wait. It features a bunch of random hot people dancing their butts off in barely there clothing. Half naked hot people + dancing = a big hit.
Adam collaborated with his "Voice" co-star Christina on the track, but it also features some old video footage of Mick Jagger himself--and his iconic moves. And of course Mick gave the duo permission to use his sexy moves.
Levine recently revealed to MTV News that Jagger fully endorsed the track, adding: "We were lucky enough to get Mick's endorsement, as far as him giving us access to a bunch of different footage."
Hollyscoop recently talked to Levine about him and Christina’s so-called "brother and sister" relationship on the Voice. He told us, "You mean [she] treats me like a human punching bag?" But Adam justified their good-natured (most of the time) ribbing:
"We're all emotion and excited and into the show so it flares up sometimes, but there's no harm."
Back to the sexy video—it pretty much features the dancers showing off their best Jagger moves and it’s sure to be the new summer anthem. Who doesn’t want to move like Jagger?!
The timing of the video release is a little odd. The band’s tour mate Gavin DeGraw was violently beaten in New York yesterday and had to be hospitalized. He’s going to miss a scheduled gig opening for Maroon 5 tonight and Friday.
His reps say in a statement: "Gavin DeGraw was assaulted ... and was taken to the emergency room at Bellevue Hospital by ambulance. He is currently under observation. We have no additional information at this time."
A source adds that the singer "was attacked" and it was "not his fault."
Sadly he was scheduled to perform on Tuesday night in Saratoga Springs, NY with Maroon 5 and Train and another Friday at Jones Beach Theater, but "They don't know yet if he will be okay to make the show tomorrow," a source adds.
Wishing Gavin a speedy recovery, but in the meanwhile, check out Adam Levine featuring Christina Aguilera in “Moves Like Jagger” below and tell us what you think, new summer anthem or just another random pop song...
