Adam Levine may love "Sugar" when he's performing the new single with his band Maroon 5, but as far as actual sucrose goes, well, he may not like it so much. Last night (May 6), the Voice coach was heading inside Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform when he was "sugar bombed" by a man outside the Los Angeles studio.
According to TMZ, Levine was heading in to Kimmel and stopped alongside his Maroon 5 bandmates to sign autographs for fans waiting outside the venue. In the midst of the meet-and-greet, the 36-year-old singer had a bag filled with powdered sugar thrown at him. Levine's left side of his face, sweater and jeans were covered in the sweet stuff and he notably tensed up.
The man who tossed the sugar at Levine was tackled by security and arrested on the scene. He's said to be a man in his 30s, though CNN reports that the police will not be releasing the name of the suspect yet.
Later, Levine appeared on Kimmel's show with Maroon 5, wearing the same sweater and it was remarkably clean! Levine also discussed a major debate that he and his bandmates had regarding velicoraptors and whether or not they could break through double-pane windows. For his own part, Levine isn't so sure that they could. But there are "so many variables that make this worth discussing."
Ironically, later Maroon 5 took to the Jimmy Kimmel Live stage to perform its latest single from the new album V... "Sugar." And he's still rocking that clean sweater!
