1. Adam Levine Swears He’s Patriotic

Adam Levine is desperate to take back a negative comment he made about America on The Voice last week.

The Jewish crooner was caught on a microphone muttering “I hate this country,” after Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons were ousted from the NBC singing competition by the popular vote. His remark drew quick reaction online, with many criticizing Levine for what he said.

Levine gave Us Weekly a statement though, saying “I obviously love my country very much and my comments last night were made purely out of frustration.”

 

2. Jewish Performer Sings Her Way to the Finals on The Voice

Speaking of Adam Levine and The Voice, one of the top 6 contestants on the show is a stand-out Jewish singer!

Michelle Chamuel is a Massachusetts native whose audition song, a cover of the Katy Perry hit “I Kissed a Girl,” had three of the four judges clamoring to get her on their team! She chose to join Team Usher and quickly became one of America’s favorites.

Chamuel says she is “a mix of Jewish-Arab-Russian-eastern European.” You can hear some of her music here.

 

3. Daniel Radcliffe Wants to be a Baby Daddy

Who says only women feel their biological clock ticking?! While he’s just 23 years old, Daniel Radcliffe says he wants to start a family in the next few years.

“I’d like to get started on it before my thirties,” the Jewish actor tells Time Out: London magazine in its June issue. “I like the idea of being a youngish parent so I’ve got energy to play football – even though they’ll be better than me by the time they’re four.”

Besides wanting to grow a family, however, Radcliffe also reportedly wants a brood of tattoos. We’re guessing the tattoos will come first…

1.  Romance? Not A Chance!

Brett Ratner is denying any romance rumors suggesting he and Sandra Bullock are hooking up. When a tabloid reported that the Jewish director and Academy Award®-winner were allegedly canoodling after the Oscars® last month, the two released a joint statement to deny the report.

“We think that it’s incredibly sad that in these times, this magazine would resort to complete fabrication, solely for financial gain,” the duo said in a joint statement obtained by Us Weekly. “There is not a shred of accuracy in their story. We have not seen nor spoken to each for over a decade. We both had a great time after the Oscars, just not with each other.”

 

2.  Woody Allen Plays A Pimp… In A Hasidic Hood!

Woody Allen rarely stars in a movie that he’s not directing, yet he’s taking on a new role as a pimp in a film that will be directed by John Turturro. Allen, a Jewish director, writer and actor, will star alongside Turturro himself and Sofia Vergara in Fading Gigolo.

In the film, Turturro and Allen play two broke best friends who decide to turn to a gigolo business to make money. Not only that, but they’re running the business out of their Hasidic Jewish neighborhood. Meshugenah? Perhaps, but we’re still planning to see it!

 

3.  Scent Of A Singer

Adam Levine is in a world-famous band, has won Grammys® and dates a Victoria’s Secret model. What else does the Jewish singer and host of The Voice need? Apparently his own fragrance!

According to the New York Daily News, Levine is partnering with ID PERFUMES to create a line called, 222 by Adam Levine. The line is supposed to premiere in May of 2013 and is said to have different varieties that will be available for both men and women. Smells like a hit to us!
