THREE YEARS AGO, I was obsessed with Adam Lambert. That's hardly an earth-shattering revelation, especially to my close friends who experienced first hand how I raved for him and defended him. Well the guy is really handsome, a Clark Kent on your TV every week on American Idol Season 8, a total performer—singer, dancer, theater actor. I mean, what more can I ask for a guy? He had everything right in the sack. Then here comes the inevitable:
The Adam ate the apple. He's gay.
My mom sensed this from Adam's day one on AI (and now I'm starting to believe sensing guy's “gayness” is one of her talents, 'cause she was ALWAYS right). Of course I chose not to believe her then because if that is true, my world will totally be ripped apart. But things like this is out of my ideal world. I still love Lambert as an artist, though.
Now here I am, moved on, yet totally obsessed with another Adam. Ok, for me he isn't as handsome, but he is damn hot.
Adam Levine of Maroon 5. So heavenly.
'Cause I can't really stalk him personally, which I will probably do if I get the chance (no, I'm just kidding), I relied on handy-dandy internet.
We all know that he's the handsome and talented vocalist of Maroon 5. We saw him rise to superstardom from This Love. But there are so many things you need to know about Adam Levine. Here's some of them:
