Adam Levine gets a little muddy in Maroon 5’s “Love Somebody” video.
We’re pretty used to seeing Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine shirtless (while doing acrobatic yoga, posing on magazine covers, and basically always), but never before has he acted so bashful about it! And by “bashful,” we mean covering himself in black body paint in Maroon 5’s artsy new “Love Somebody” video, the latest off the band’s fourth album, Overexposed. (For the record, we’re not exactly sure WHY Adam’s covered in body paint, but we’re thinking maybe he felt inspired by Demi Lovato‘s black paint moment in her “Heart Attack” video.)
Watch Maroon 5’s “Love Somebody” video after the jump.
In the Rich Lee-directed clip, Adam and a superhot model chick stand facing each other against a white backdrop. But it’s not just a staring contest — it’s more like an exercise in finger painting! Adam and his lady are covered in black body paint, and spend most of the video “painting” each other’s bodies (this may be, in a number of ways, the dirtiest form of foreplay ever). Either that, or Adam’s taken a dunk in Israel’s Dead Sea? You know, the Middle East’s magical mud ocean? Anyway, we’re totally into this video, but we do have one gripe. We’re always SO keen to count the abs on Adam’s milli-pack midsection, and it’s kind hard to do that when said midsection is covered in sludge. Just a creative note for next time!
