Maroon 5: "We Don't Really Care If Fans Pay for Our Music"

When your favorite band puts out a greatest hits record, it's annoying to be expected to purchase the same songs you already have again, right?  Well, Maroon 5 feels your pain: not only do they plan on charging less for their future best-of, but they think it's cool if fans decide not to pay for any of their music, period. Speaking to the U.K. website Digital Spy, Adam Levine says, "If our next record is a Greatest Hits record, we may write a few original songs and put them on there, and maybe we'll only charge what it would cost…

Adam Levine's a Creepy Crazed Stalker in New "Animals" Video

Adam Levine is stalking his own wife in Maroon 5's new video for their single "Animals." In the clip, Adam is a nerdy-looking dude who obsessively takes photos of a beautiful woman, played by Adam's real-life wife Behati Prinsloo.   When he's not poring over the photos, he's hanging out -- literally -- in a meat locker stocked with big, bloody sides of beef, and smearing his naked torso with cow blood.  At one point, Behati's seen sleeping -- in skimpy lingerie, of course -- and is oblivious to the fact that Adam is sitting on a chair right next to…
