First of all, apologies because my list came out late this year. Too much alcohol can hinder your perspective of time. Oops.
Musical highlights have got to be the ‘NSYNC at the 2013 VMAs. Suddenly I realized all the boybands of today cannot hold a candle to those of the 90’s and 00’s. My playlist of boyband songs is sacred on my ipod.
Then I started rapping to the likes of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (“trust me, on my I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T shit, hustling… chasing dreams since I was fourteen”). Well, it’s been a long time since I wanted to learn the lyrics of a rap song. Then there’s Ed Sheeran who writes and sings crazy-beautiful lyrics and songs.
This year’s Grammys is gonna be the shit!

I lost count how many times I saw this, not only for Maroon 5 but for all the babes too!
So much electricity between Adam Levine and Anne Vyalitsyna aka Anne V!
Isn’t Adam Levine hot in just that singlet that complements all his tattoos?
And did you see how proud Orlando Bloom seemed when Miranda Kerr walked down the runway?
Ahhh… The perks of having a VS model as a wife/girlfriend.
(Adam Levine + Anne V. Caleb Followill + Lily Aldridge. Orlando Bloom + Miranda Kerr.)
My current ringtone!
Here’s the live version from The Voice – where Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera are co-hosts and apparently, lots of hate-flirting.
Anyway, Adam Levine is practically shirtless throughout the video – HOT! There’s even an EXPLICIT version but nothing more explicit about Adam though.
I like their Maroon 5’s new 3D-ish logo!
Date: 25 April 2011
Venue: Singapore Indoor Stadium
THE MAROON 5 CONCERT WAS AMAZING!
90 minutes of rocking good times since Matt Flynn and James Valentine went crazy on the drums and guitars. OMG I’ve forgotten how much I love Matt Flynn’s drumming!
Adam Levine – Vocals
James Valentine – Lead Guitar
Mickey Madden – Bass Guitar
Jesse Carmichael – Keyboards
Matt Flynn – Drums
PJ Morton – Keyboards/Backing vocals
Adam Levine: You guys gotta sing… now this is a high note. I see a lot of guys looking a little concerned about this. But I assure you this is gonna be okay. Nobody will hear you.
One of my favourite part was when Adam Levine dedicated She Will Be Loved to the ladies (after explaining his obsession with the fairer sex) and then guided the 8,000-strong crowd to sing She Will Be Loved… The left half sang “she will be loved…” while the other half sang “I don’t mind spending everyday out on the corner in the pouring rain…” and boom! – MAGIC.
Plus, the way Adam Levine keeps going round the microphone stand makes everyone wants to be that exclusive microphone stand. Some lucky one got Adam’s sweat-soaked towel when it ended.

My least favourite thing had nothing to do with the band – it’s those people with free tickets, with seats in front of me and they were seated throughout the concert? OMG it’s a bloody rock concert, fucking stand up!
Pictures from the Maroon 5 Singapore concert coming soon!
Wake you up, in the middle of the night to say
I will never ever walk away again
I’m never gonna leave this bed
One of my favourite songs from their album, Hands All Over!
Guess who’s gonna have hands all over him on April 25, 2011? Yup, MAROON 5 IS COMING TO SINGAPORE!!
Yup, it’s nearing the end of the year!
Personally, I think the last days of December goes by the fastest. First it’s Christmas, then it’s New Year’s Eve! This year has been good, I think. First half is me mugging, second half is me enjoying life. And which year can be complete without music?
If I remember correctly, I listened to a lot of Lady Antebellum and Cheryl Cole during my exam period. I have this strange idea that if I listened to it while revising, and if I played it (in my mind) during the exam, it might help me recall whatever I’ve revised. But I’m not sure if it really works cos I only “play” songs to calm my nerves.
“Anything that’s worth having, is sure enough worth fighting for. Quitting’s out of the question, when it gets tough gotta fight some more.”
– Fight For This Love, Cheryl Cole
