On October 17 millions of swooning girls tuned into FX's "American Horror Story" just to catch a racy glimpse of Adam Levine, Maroon 5's front man. He didn't disappoint; his sexy/creepy role was perhaps just what fans imagined it would be. And according to reports, that wasn't the last we've seen of Levine on the show. The "Harder to Breathe" singer may have doubts about the future of his television-acting career. But he's certainly keeping things interesting in the rest of his life. Here are three definite ways he's staying relevant…
He's taking it to the big screen…
Outside of his coaching gig on "The Voice," Levine isn't certain how far his TV pursuits will go. But he's certainly not ruled out the big screen. In June 2012 it was announced that he would be featured in a movie called "Can a Song Save Your Life?" In the flick, he portrays an aspiring musician who ditches his girlfriend (played by Kiera Knightley) for the big time. Considering that "American Horror Story" features its own star-studded cast, it's not surprising that Levine happens to be nestled amongst tons of Hollywood all-stars in this movie. Mos Def, Catherine Keener, and Mark Ruffalo (amongst others) join him on his journey into the world of acting.
Adam's character may have traded love for fame in his debut film. But the opposite is true in his music video for Maroon 5's "One More Night." This time, he's a struggling boxer fighting to support his perfectly coiffed girlfriend (Minka Kelly) and baby in tow. Unfortunately, this touchy profession sends her and the little one packing. Adorned with battle wounds, poor Adam returns to an empty home, save for his boxing memorabilia and one lonely goldfish. While it might be hard to picture Levine in the role of the abandoned lover, he could probably convince the world of anything with that famous falsetto voice.
Adam signs Christina Aguilera's "nemesis" to record label.
Speaking of voices, it's no secret that Adam's support of "The Voice" season 2 contestant Tony Lucca caused more tension between himself and fellow judge Christina Aguilera. On the show, he encouraged Lucca to perform a rendition of "99 Problems" by Jay-Z; "I got 99 problems, but a b*tch ain't one," the lyrics boasted, apparently taking a serious dig at the pop princess. Needless to say, both Lucca and Levine had the last laugh. In September 2012, Adam signed Tony to his 222 Records label.
