Adam Levine, Maroon 5’s vocalist, recently spoke in a interview about the new album and also on gay rumors about friend Jake Gyllenhaal.
Adam declared: “Will everyone stop thinking that dude is gay? Seriously guys. How immature is it of the media to perceive this guy — it has to be because of ‘Brokeback [Mountain],’ right?”
The singer revealed that he knows Jake for a very long time, they are old friends and the whole situation that the actor is in currently is just stupid.
“I’ve known this dude forever. He’s one of my oldest friends, and it’s very weird that they have this — it’s very immature and infantile the way they treat his whole situation. If him hanging out with his bros means he’s gay, it’s like further perpetuating that weird homophobia that exists in our culture, which is just stupid.”
Adam Levine revealed also the name of Maroon 5’s new album which is ‘Hands All Over’. He needed to explain that even if some people think Maroon 5 isn’t a serious band, in fact they won awards that show the band’s real value.
“Sometimes I am hypersensitive to the fact that we’re not taken seriously,” he says. “But I don’t realize, ‘Well, wait a minute. We’ve won awards that are really prestigious and Grammys and all this stuff. What am I complaining about?’”
