The Word: Moves like Adam Levine

If Natalie Portman wasn’t safe from this, no one is.

Adam Levine is a curious creature. Since Maroon 5 started seeping its comfortable radio rock through the airwaves 10 years ago, the seemingly unremarkable frontman and “Voice” judge has dated his way through intellectual A-listers (Natalie Portman), fluffy pop princesses (Jessica Simpson, circa a very respectable 2006) and Victoria’s Secret bombshells (Anne Vyalitsyna).

Is he cute and talented in a nonthreatening way? Sure. But we have a feeling his sparkling dating résumé is a result of professional-grade smooth talking, which he whipped out in a new interview with “Details” magazine.

“There’s two kinds of men: There are men who are f–ing misogynist pigs, and then there are men who just really love women, who think they’re the most amazing people in the world. And that’s me,” Levine tells the magazine.

But he’s a rock star, so he’s not perfect, of course. As for sleeping around, he muses, “Maybe the reason I was promiscuous, and wanted to sleep with a lot of them, is that I love them so much.”

Laugh all you want, but when was the last time you turned off the bubblegum noise that is “Moves Like Jagger”? Adam Levine is in our heads, ladies.

Our Badu!

Yesterday we enthused on Wayne Coyne’s weirdness hat trick of combining an odd new Flaming Lips cover (“The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”), an unlikely collaborator (Erykah Badu) and some nude photos (of Badu, or so we thought!). Although Badu was in a few of the photos that Coyne tweeted, it turns out she wasn’t the nude one, as Badu tweeted later in the day, “Those nude photos posted by Wayne (flaming lips) are of the beautiful Nayrok my lil sister and bestee. We do look alike. Video looks cosmic.”

How did his garden grow?

When Michelle Obama went on “The Daily Show” Tuesday night to promote healthy eating and gardening, host Jon Stewart took the opportunity to talk herbs. She good-naturedly declined to give too many details on President Obama’s past pot smoking, but did say he stopped when he went to college.

“Like many young people,” she said, “he realized he could do more with his life.”

But did he realize Pringles were missing peanut butter? Didn’t think so.

Prince Harry has a job opening

When Prince William sat down with Katie Couric for an interview, he said what recently married royals in line for the throne are supposed to say: “I’m very keen to have a family, and both Catherine and I are looking forward to having a family.”

But more surprising is what younger brother Harry shared. “I’ve longed for kids since I was very, very young,” said the prince with a reputation for looking hungover on the polo field. “And so I’m just waiting to find the right person, someone who’s willing to take on the job.”

Harry, we’d like to introduce you to America, where hot girls are willing to take on the job of letting Donald Trump touch them. Inquire within.
