After a new string of leaked text messages gives us a closer look into Marron 5’s Adam Levine and his stance on metal music and metal fans. The exchange happened between Levine and a woman named Alyson Rosef where he was openly flirting with her.
This, of course, was just one of the leaks as other women came forward, accusing Maroon 5 frontman of sending them flirty messages. As for Alyson, she shared a screenshot of the chat, revealing what he had to say about her music tastes.
While chatting with Levine, Alyson mentioned that she’s “so weird,” adding that “[I] only listen to metal.” The musician then responded by saying “Said no hot chicks ever other than you.”

For so many reasons, it’s kind of difficult to even comment on what Levine said in these messages. Be it a joke or not, it’s a bit unusual that he allowed himself to chat with fans in this manner.
What is worth mentioning, however, is the abundance of memes that appeared on social media after the leak. Some of the screenshots proved to be incredible meme ammunition. And among those who used them is also Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee.
In fact, he combined it with his own special photo that he shared back in the good days of summer 2022.
This wasn’t Adam Levine’s first jab at rock music. In an interview from a few years ago, he had this to say:
“Something unique to this band is that we have always looked to hip-hop, R&B, all rhythmic forms of music, from back when we were writing our first album to now.”
“Rock music is nowhere, really. I don’t know where it is. If it’s around, no one’s invited me to the party. All of the innovation and the incredible things happening in music are in hip-hop. It’s better than everything else.”
“Hip-hop is weird and avant-garde and flawed and real, and that’s why people love it. … My goal is to make songs that don’t sound dated 10 years later. My main criteria for a song is, can I live with it forever? And if I can’t, I just don’t have the heart to do it. It’s that simple.”
