I’ll admit, last week I wasn’t feeling Saturday Night Live. The episode just wasn’t really that funny and I’m not a huge fan of Jennifer Lawrence;comedy doesn’t seem to be her forte. But despite a let down last week, I’m glad to say this week’s episode of SNL was hilarious!!!
Adam Levine was the host this week and the musical guest was the amazing Kendrick Lamar. I’m a fan, especially of his track ”Swimming Pools” and I was glad that he performed it. Oh and he performed “Poetic Justice,” which basically samples my favorite Janet Jackson song, “Anytime Anyplace.”
From the cold opening to the digital short, YOLO, the entire episode was filled with huge LOL moments. But hands down, the Soprano Diaries and the YOLO Digital Short were the best! Kendrick Lamar even took some time out and spit some bars in the YOLO skit featuring Lonely Island and Adam Levine. The skit basically took Drake’s famous saying, You Only Live Once (YOLO) and turned it into a hilarious mashup of all the things that can kill you, so You Ought to Look Out. Trust me, it is pure comedy!
The other skit that I found super funny was the Soprano Diaries. Man, I couldn’t stop laughing even if I tried. I watched it over and over again (thank God for DVR) and I just love how they put the Soprano characters into an 80s high school setting. Too funny for words!!!! So, yeah, you should go watch that clip now!
The episode contained a few other hilarious skits, and I personally thought Catfish: The TV Show skit was pretty funny. It does seem like somehow it ends up always being about Nev, the host, and the reactions are always so confusing prior to the commercial breaks.

Seriously, Maroon 5 can never do any wrong in my eyes. I don’t usually attribute that affirmative statement to a lot of music out nowadays, but I can gladly stand behind Maroon 5 and Dave Matthews Band. Those are two bands that always tease my ears with timeless, effortless, and illustrious music.
Not only is Maroon 5 an amazing band, they have one of the hottest lead singers. Adam Levin is so sexy and his voice is even sexier. It should be a sin for a man to be that sexy, seriously, his level of enticing handsomeness is beyond words. He happens to be one of my celebrity crushes, every time he comes on television I have to bit my lips. It’s ridiculous how sexy he is! But aside from his charming looks, it’s obvious that his voice is clearly exceptional and off the charts.
I enjoyed watching Adam on The Voice and I was glad to see him showing off his eccentric tattoos and quirky dance moves in Maroon 5′s new music video “Moves Like Jagger.” The video came out yesterday and the song takes a retro direction. It begins with classic footage of Mick Jagger, the iconic singer from the Rolling Stones, talking about his plans to make music. Following the legendary footage of Mick Jagger, the video turns into a mash-up of people trying to dance like Jagger.
Anyone who knows a little something about the Rolling Stones or Mick Jagger, knows that Jagger is known for his outlandish yet contagious dance. He has this way of thrusting his legs, twitching his body, and clapping his hands in this quirky yet cool manner. You can’t talk about Mick Jagger without mentioning his dance moves and embarrassing yourself while attempting to move like Jagger.
I know from watching the video that the dancers had fun trying to move like Jagger. Have you ever tried to move like Jagger? It’s a lot of fun just throwing on some music and trying to move like him. Yet this song is more than just moving like Jagger, so take a listen to the lyrics and enjoy the video. Christina Aguilera is even on the track belting out with her amazing vocals and she looks good in this video.
Check out the video for Maroon 5′s “Move Like Jagger” and if you’re a fan of Maroon 5, then I’m sure you’ll love it. Or perhaps, you’re just a fan of Adam Levine; he is quite the epitome of scrumptious eye candy. LOL
