Kelly Clarkson & Maroon 5 will be touring together this summer as part of the Honda Civic Tour. Maroon 5 is billed as the headlining act for the tour.

The tour will kick off August 1st in St. Louis and end in San Diego October 5th.

Adam Levine had this to say about the tour;

 "I think the live outdoor kind of summer vibe is always different than the indoor arena tour because there's less emphasis on production and more on live music. It's kind of the purist form of a tour `cause there's not too many bells and whistles."

At this time, there is no L.A. date for the tour.

Ne-Yo & Fun. To Perform At Grammy Nomination Special Dec. 5th

The more performers they add, the more upset I am that the special is in Nashville, TN than Los Angeles this year. Ne-Yo and Fun. have officially been added to the Grammy Nomination Special that will air on CBS December 5th.

They join Luke Bryan and Maroon 5 as performers for the show that will be co-hosted by LL Cool J and Taylor Swift. The event will take place at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. After the show tapes, Maroon 5 will perform a special one hour concert for the crowd in attendance.

The Grammy Nominations Special has been getting pretty impressive ratings in the 5 years since they started having them. Last years show raked in just under 40 million viewers, which was the largest Grammy audience since 1984.

The Grammys will be handed out in Los Angeles Sunday Feb. 10th on CBS.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Ne-Yo's new album R.E.D. is out now.

Maroon 5 Frontman Adam Levine Tells MTV “F-U”

Adam Levine took to his Twitter page to tell MTV "F-U" and we are pretty sure it didn't stand for "Forget You" at all.

Yes, we made sure to use a photo of Adam at an MTV Awards show as a little way of being a jerk to his message although we hear it loud and clear.  Thanks to Mishell1972 for the heads up.

Adam had this to say about the MTV Video Music Awards;

the VMA's. one day a year when MTV pretends to still care about music. I'm drawing a line in the sand. fuck you VMA's.

So did MTV respond back?

Soooo you'll be tuning in at 9/8C tomorrow right?  (BTW, bonus points if you TwitPic your 2004 Moonman!)

Adam responded back with 2 comments to show that he is not regretting what he said;

still waiting to have my "jerry macguire mission statement moment of deep regret..." not happening. phew!

i may be a pop singer. but every once in a while the angsty teenager in me just blurts out some raw honesty.  it's a reflex.

We wonder if the comments Adam made will change how often MTV plays their videos.....when they do play videos.

Although what Adam said is true, it is rare that an artist just comes out and says it so matter of factly.  Other artists have said it and then...they can't get a video on MTV..no matter how good it is.  They will just say it is not good enough.

Straight up, MTV, if you can't take the comments, do something about it.  The M in MTV used to stand for Music and not Mooki or Snookie or whatever.  I am promoting the MTV Awards HEAVILY on my site.  The reason is not because of MTV but because MUSIC MATTERS to me.  Anytime there is a light shined on music, I will champion it.

The MTV Awards will be highly rated this year.  Why?  Not because MTV put a lot into the show....(They didn't even get a host this year) but because people are STARVING for live musical performances.  I wish I had a billion dollars so I could show MTV how it's done!  Take em to church, Adam!-Dr.FB

“Moves Like Jagger” Video By Maroon 5 & Christina Aguilera! Watch Now!

 

Here it is.  A couple of months after we wanted it but we think the groove will keep us liking the video for a while.  "Moves Like Jagger" a new song by Maroon 5 with Christina Aguilera was performed 2 months ago on "The Voice" the NBC hit singing reality show.

The video shows old clips of Mick Jagger as well as people trying to emulate the legend.  For the females, you have a shirtless Adam Levine for the entire video, so we know that part of the demographic is covered. 

Check out the video above and let us know what you think.-Dr.FB
