Daily Mail- America's largest anti-sexual assault organization is slamming Maroon 5 and Adam Levine for what they are calling a 'dangerous' new music video.
The video, for the group's new single, Animals, follows Levine, 35, as he stalks, unknowingly photographs and ultimately sexually assaults a woman as the two are covered in blood.
Is the video a tad creepy. Yeah, for sure. To be honest, I have heard that song probably close to a 1,000 times and not bothered to listen to a single word of it. I guess I am a visual learner. So when I saw the video I was like 'okay, yup, kinda stalkery'.
It's 2014 though. If you are going to go through the trouble to make a music video you better grab some eyeballs. Pretty sure that was the first music video I have watched since 2008. If he wasn't swinging from animal carcasses and dousing himself in gallons of blood I wouldn't have made it through the first 30 seconds.
Fucking feminists. I think it is funny that the primary job of feminists is to fight for equal rights of women. Yet, I get the impression that none of them have jobs. They just sit home and think of ways to be offended. If you're a male musician and your video doesn't have the potential to offend feminists it's probably not getting on TV. So Adam Levine stalked a chick in a video. Adam Levine doesn't have to stalk girls in real life. In fact, it's quite the opposite. That guy probably has to beat away stalkers on a daily basis (no Ray Rice).
It's not like some stupid video is going to convince some kid to go run up in some stranger's apartment snapping pictures. You are born with that gene. You are either a stalker or you're not. It doesn't develop by watching crappy music videos. It's a metaphor ladies. I know the concept of lust doesn't register in your sexually inhibited brains.
If anything, this video doesn't glorify stalking at all. Levine starts the video standing in the rain and ends the video standing in the rain. That means nothing in the middle even happened. Duh. It's a fantasy. An incredibly fucked up fantasy, but a fantasy nonetheless. Standing in the street in the middle of a rain storm staring up at a fully dressed girl in a foggy window is not exactly how I would want to spend my Friday night. He actually looks quite miserable. Probably turned around and went home seconds later ashamed of his poor attempt at stalking.
