Imagine Dragons Unveil Video for "I Bet My Life"

Imagine Dragons have released the video for their new single, "I Bet My Life." While it's not as bizarre as the stuffed-animal fighting ring featured in the "Radioactive" video,  the clip for "I Bet My Life" does feature Dane DeHaan, the Green Goblin himself, getting into a fist fight on the shores above the Theodore Roosevelt Dam. Things get stranger from there. You can view the new video, directed by Canadian filmmaker Jodeb, on Vevo.

When Will Adam Levine and His Wife Have Kids?

Adam Levine and his wife, Behati Prinsloo, plan to start a family, but he's vague about when that will actually happen. In an interview with E! News, The Voice coach discloses, "Yeah, we're gonna do it at some point in the not-so-distant-slash-undisclosed-slash-I-really-have-no-idea-big-question-mark future." "Is that ambiguous enough for you?" he added. Adam was equally as mysterious when asked how many kids he wants. He said, "Like, 17. Is that reasonable?" He continued, "I love kids so much, though. I love seeing kids on the set, too." Adam and Behati tied the knot in Mexico last July.
