Two photos. Two powerful messages. Four years have passed since Adam Levine stripped down for Cosmopolitan UK, with then-girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna covering his privates, to raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer.
“Some areas of my body used to remind me of everything I’m not,“ Dowling is quoted as saying. "Now they represent everything I am.”
Point5cc’s founder, Aydian Dowling, recreates the racy Adam Levine nude portrait to raise awareness of the trans* masculine spectrum.
dnt interpret this the wrong way but i hate when they stick unnecessary rap verses into top 40 songs bc i get the impression that it’s a marketing decision to sell the song to more people & the verses are honestly so terrible. older example that comes to my head is wiz khalifa in payphone. the song is basically 2 minutes of adam levine crying abt how he wasted everything on a girlfriend that left him, and then wiz comes in with “man, fuck that shit” talking abt going out and presumably going out clubbing and partying and buying stuff and being flashy in the public eye in general and not rlly caring abt the lost relationship beyond rubbing his success in his ex’s face. and i guess that would be all well and good if he did his own song abt it but this is not that! it’s a depressing breakup song! that verse doesn’t add any value to it, it jst throws the flow off imo. and this has been going on for years & will continue on for years and we will never be free of badly written raps forcibly inserted into songs that don’t make sense with them
& dnt get me started on juicy j’s verse in dark horse… what a complete unmitigated disaster
