Caroline Pennell Sings ‘Anything Could Happen’ on The Voice — WATCH NOW

Written by , Posted in General

If you follow The Voice, then you know that Blake Shelton picks his contestants based on tone, not range. That philosophy has served him well, garnering three wins as a mentor on the show. So when Caroline Pennell sang ‘Anything Could Happen,’ I knew Blake would immediately turn around. Unfortunately, Caroline missed the memo on the most loyal judges and chose Cee Lo Green as her mentor, in what will likely result in post-show oblivion. Watch her strikingly good performance below.

Maroon 5’s ‘Overexposed’ Music Review — It’s Good

Written by , Posted in General

I’ve never claimed to be a music critic, even though The Dishmaster is heavily centered on music. My very basic reviews are exclusively based on whether I’d like to listen to an album while driving down the Pacific Coast Highway on a beautiful Los Angeles day. So when I read the extremely intricate (and sometimes hilarious) assaults on Maroon 5’s new album, ‘Overexposed,’ I just assumed I’d hate the record. “How could so many critics be wrong,” I thought. And given my hatred for Adam Levine’s egotism, I also assumed I’d find pleasure in disliking his record. But I loved it. It is genuine and enjoyable, and the tracks are just the right mix of workout-out-worthy up-tempo and imagine-a-man-is-singing-this-to-me low-tempo. Listen below to “Sad.”

Quote of the Day — Adam Levine Brags About Getting Laid

Written by , Posted in General

“I felt like people only knew me as a singer who dated pretty girls. . . . A little bit of a bimbo. Maybe the reason I was promiscuous, and wanted to sleep with a lot of them, is that I love them so much. . . . I was the music dude that was naked all the time with the girls, and that’s fine. . . . But I wanted to create a little balance. When ‘The Voice’ came around, I thought, ‘People now know that I have a brain.'” The always douchey Adam Levine on the deep reason behind his man-whore syndrome.

Christina Aguilera v. Tony Lucca & Adam Levine — A “B*tch”?

Written by , Posted in General

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Christina Aguilera for confirming to the outside world what industry insiders have known for years — she’s a huge bitch. This confirmation took place on tonight’s episode of ‘The Voice,’ when Christina outwardly criticized Tony Lucca and Adam Levine’s song choice, objecting to the lyric, “99 problems, but a bitch ain’t one.” According Radar Online, the fight between Levine and Aguilera started earlier today, and it obviously continued on-air. Apparently, she felt the lyric in question was specifically directed at her, presumably because . . . well . . . if the shoe fits. After Lucca performed, Aguilera’s disdain became immediately clear when she claimed the lyrics were “derogatory toward women.” And since Adam Levine is a complete badass, he explained to the audience that the lyric isn’t about women in general, but it’s a metaphor for anything bringing you down. Aguilera didn’t buy it, and a verbal brawl began. But Levine cleverly had the last word, removing his button-down to reveal a “Team Xtina” shirt. As an aside, Tony Lucca killed it, and Adam Levine is unequivocally the best coach. Maybe she can ask him for advice if her option gets renewed. Watch below.

Christina Aguilera Hates Tony Lucca — Also Hates Everyone

Written by , Posted in General

Not a day goes by where I won’t point out how much I dislike Christina Aguilera. Today’s edition is about Tony Lucca, who Christina Aguilera took some serious time to criticize while commenting on Katrina Parker’s performance. In short, she outwardly advised Adam Levine to pick Parker instead of Lucca, telling Levine to reject “the obvious choice.” First, Christina Aguilera obviously has some residual Mickey Mouse Club animosity (which might include a hatred for fellow Mouseketeer Justin Timberlake who supports Lucca). Second, she’s a terrible judge. Lucca is the “obvious” choice because he will be the most successful in the industry. Katrina Parker isn’t even close. And lastly, none of Aguilera’s former team members from last season became successful after the show, which means she’s also a bad coach. Watch both performances below.

The Best Judge on ‘The Voice’ — Blake Shelton

Written by , Posted in General

If I were a contestant on The Voice, it would take me one millisecond to choose Blake Shelton as my mentor. The reason? He’s the only judge with post-show loyalty. It’s not about winning the show, it’s about what happens after you win the show, and a huge part of an artist’s success is whether other artists with more fame promote them. And Blake Shelton constantly promotes Dia Frampton and Xenia, two contestants from the last season of the show. Sure Adam Levine won with Javier Colon, but does he invite him to sing at Maroon 5 concerts? In fact, Dia Frampton is joining Blake Shelton on tour. You can’t beat that type of exposure. There is no way Christina Aguilera would make that same type of offer.

Adam Levine and Anne V: Naked and Ridiculous

Written by , Posted in General

Is there any man more in love with himself than Adam Levine? He’s constantly finding excuses to get naked, and I’m sick of it. He’s that skinny nerd who became a gigantic douchebag after his band hit it big. “Look at me! And look at my hot girlfriend!! Isn’t she super hot?! Aren’t I the best looking douchebag ever!?” Remember when he was actually a musician? He should go for coffee with John Mayer. Those two have a lot in common.

Maroon 5’s Album is Incredible — I’m Sorry, Adam Levine

Written by , Posted in General

If you follow my blog, then you would know how often I pick on Adam Levine for his annoying personality.  In my most recent post on the topic, I claimed to stop listening to his music based solely on this terrible personality.  Well, even The Dishmaster can eat crow.  Thanks to Grooveshark, I was able to listen to his entire new album, Hands All Over, before buying it — and it’s incredible.  I’ll repent for my sharp tongue by actually purchasing the album.  Who says I’m immature?
