Celebrity of the week:

Maroon 5’s lead singer Adam Levine was named People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive.” Levine, who is also a judge on the hit show “The Voice,” beat out other leading males in the entertainment industry for the top spot, including Justin Timberlake and Chris Hemsworth. The 34-year-old told People magazine he didn’t expect being awarded the title.

“I was just amazed and stunned and it almost seemed like they were kidding, but they weren’t, so that’s cool,” he said in the magazine, which is out on store shelves now.


On Sunday, Nov. 24, Hollywood came together to celebrate the American Music Awards in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre. Celebrities who attended the annual award show included host Pitbull, Jordin Sparks, Lance Bass and many more.

According to ABC news, Katy Perry opened the show with her song “Unconditionally,” while Miley Cyrus performed at the end of the evening. Other performers included Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line.

While celebrities were preparing for the AMAs, Jessica Simpson traveled to Dallas during the weekend with her family, including husband Eric Johnson and their two children Maxwell and Ace. Simpson was in Dallas to promote her clothing line at Dillard’s.
