Wait...what's Adam Levine's "most prized possession?"
Adam Levine is really into cars and motorcycles, but he tells the New York Times that his most prized possession doesn't have wheels. According to Adam, it's his watch.
Specifically, it's a Rolex Paul Newman Daytona. As Adam explains, "I bought it about eight years ago...it was a major luxury purchase, and I will never, ever get rid of it. You can go plenty of directions with a Rolex — there are so many bad ones — but the right one from the right era is something special."
We're not sure how much Adam paid for his specific watch, but depending on the model and year, they can cost anywhere from $30,000 to a million bucks. Last year, the late Paul Newman's personal Rolex Daytona sold at auction for nearly $18 million.
But despite the super-luxe watch, Adam says he doesn't like to go overboard when it comes to jewelry.
"I don’t want to look like a pirate. I wear a ring, my wedding ring, and I wear a watch and the same gold necklace," he tells the Times. "My wife gave me the necklace -- my Jewish part of the family will probably kill me, but it’s a gold mother Mary."
In the same article, Adam also gushes over his Yves Saint Laurent black leather jacket, and his Ten Air Jordan 1 Off-White sneakers, which cost $190 a pair...if you can get them.
"My little brother turned me on to sneakers," he says. "Isn’t it so fascinating, the sneaker game? For me, it’s rooted in the past and for adults of a certain age, you get in touch with another part of your person -- your inner little kid."
James Arthur disses The Script in a rap about copyright lawsuit over "Say You Won't Let Go"
In May, as previously reported, the band The Script sued James Arthur for copyright infringement, claiming that his breakthrough U.S. single "Say You Won't Let Go" sounds suspiciously like The Script's early hit, "The Man Who Can't Be Moved." Now, James has hit back at the Irish band in a defiant freestyle rap.
While performing a cover of Jorja Smith's song "Blue Lights" for BBC Radio One's "Live Lounge," James launched into a rap that seems to be aimed at The Script and the lawsuit.
"Those desperate men call for desperate times/But they will never see a single flippin' dime of mine," he raps. "I'm dynamite, every single line I write/Inspired by life/You can get your lawyers to indict me/You rich fellows that jealous, you would spite me?/You should know I never follow The Script/I rip it up and I flip it/I'm from the gutters of Britain."
"I went from nothing to millions/My fingers up to the system," he continues, adding, "People keep on telling me I'm meant for the top/All the snakes full of jealousy are praying I'll flop/You'll do nothing except kick on a rock/I'll be so flippin' high, I'll be riding with Spock."
The Script is being represented by the attorney who won the "Blurred Lines"/Marvin Gaye copyright case. In addition to James, his two co-writers are named in the lawsuit, as are his record and publishing companies. The attorney is asking for a jury trial and an accounting of all the revenue connected to the song, according to Billboard.
Glad You Came (Back): The Wanted's Max George returns with solo single "Barcelona"
Remember The Wanted, the British boy band who scored a global smash with "Glad You Came?" Member Nathan Sykes has had some solo success since they went on hiatus, and now another member, Max George, is trying his hand at the solo thing.
Max just released his debut solo single "Barcelona," which was co-written by Steve Mac, the same guy who co-wrote "Shape of You," "What About Us," "Strip That Down," and many other hits. The video that goes along with it finds Max on a beach, pining over a female surfer.
“I’ve worked with a lot of amazing writers, some from The Wanted days, and I feel like I’ve settled in to a sound,” Max says in a statement. "It’s not a million miles away from what I’ve done before, but it’s fresher and sharper, sometimes more stripped back, maybe more experimental.”
No word on whether an album from Max will follow.
Man of the dance floor: Justin Timberlake drops new single, "Soulmate"
Summer starts now. That's according to Justin Timberlake's new surprise single "Soulmate," which doesn't appear on his latest album, Man of the Woods.
Ahead of the kickoff of his European tour, Justin posted an Instagram video of himself standing on a rooftop terrace in Paris, looking out at the skyline, and pointing out an inflatable baby pool that he's brought out for his son Silas to use. Then, he takes out his phone and plays the first part of the song, which begins with him proclaiming, "Summer starts now."
The song itself, an upbeat, summery dance jam, is now available on YouTube. According to Vulture, the song was recorded last week in the Bahamas with Drake's favorite producer/songwriter team, Nineteen85 and James Fauntleroy, and others.
Ant-Man and The Wasp's Evangeline Lilly says she felt the pressure of being Marvel's first female title character
Ant-Man and The Wasp flies into theaters this weekend, and it's already making history as the first film in the past decade of Marvel movies to feature a female superhero in the title role. Evangeline Lilly, who plays that her, The Wasp, tells ABC Radio she understands the importance of the role.
"I did feel the burden of the fact that she is the first titled character in the MCU, and that means a lot to me," Lilly said. "I've always cared about the characters that I represent on screen being a representation of how I see women."
Lilly said she especially felt the pressure when she helped design The Wasp's suit.
"I really was kind of passionate to find what I felt would be my comfortable balance," she says, "between honoring this fantasy that we create in the superhero world while also honoring myself as a woman, honoring my own body, honoring my own modesty, and presenting her as somebody who would be believably strong, capable, fierce, threatening and modern."
Michelle Pfeiffer joins the cast this time around, playing The Wasp's mother. Lilly says it was great getting to work with the three-time Oscar nominee.
"She was smart and she was funny and she was so likable and generous and kind and just everything you would want her to be," Lilly says. "And yes, she is that hot in real life." (AUDIO IS ABC 1-ON-1)
Ant-Man and The Wasp open nationwide Friday.
