Dear Adam Levine – You Would Be So Much Hotter Without the Plastic Bottles

Dear Adam,

I came to see you last night at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View.  I bought my ticket in April and have looked forward to our little visit for months.  I’m not embarrassed to admit that despite having the most awesome husband in the world, I get all squishy feeling inside when I see you on TV or hear a Maroon 5 song on the radio. You are my 2013 version of Donnie Osmond, Shawn Cassidy, Andy Gibb. (Yes, I’m that old.) I have been known to tell my friends I would walk across the floor on my tongue for you. Only sort of joking.

So last night, I joined all the other straight or bi women and gay men who feel the same way about you. And when you first appeared on stage, I was thrilled.

Until I looked over to the left of you. Behind you, on the stage, a whole collection of disposable plastic water bottles.

image

And then you drank from them. You drank from them all night. And seriously, despite having the hottest tattoos ever, your hotness quotient dropped many percentage points in just a couple of hours.

image

You know what you could do to restore those points? You could join the ranks of guys like Jackson Browne, Jack Johnson, and Jason Mraz who have ditched single use plastic water bottles on their tours.

Maroon 5 is a member of the Plastic Pollution Coalition.  But it’s not enough to say you dislike plastic pollution (Who does?) You are in a unique position to inspire millions of people to switch to tap water in reusable bottles just by drinking from a reusable bottle on stage.  You don’t even have to say anything about it and people will copy what they see you do.

You know what’s really hot, Adam? What’s truly hot is a guy in a Jedi costume with a stainless steel water bottle.  Lucky me. I get to sleep with this hot guy every night.

Where can I find these stainless steel bottles?

Let me know when you actually do it and post it online. Or if you want me to post it on my website, I would be happy to. I think it makes a difference when true fans do the criticizing.

I am constantly formulating a letter in my head. Will put it on my to-do list so I actually have to-do it...

YES! OMG they are always eating take-out with tons of disposable plastic foodware. We should write to them. Michael and I love that show.

The best part of this post for suresies is that Jedi photo with SS bottles. After seeing that photo, I definitely want to be seen using a SS water bottle. All the cool kids are doing it! C'mon, Maroon 5, get with the program!

I feel this same way whenever I'm watching The Big Bang Theory. UGH!

Okay, I've got no idea who Adam Levine is (a nice Jewish boy by the sound of it!), but I think you are the cats pajamas Beth!  I love the pic of you two Jedis with stainless water bottles.  Completely awesome!

OMG OMG!!!  Beth I have been wondering how this concert would go since you bought the tickets!!  And when you said you had a blogpost coming, I thought it could go 2 ways:  

Maroon 5... err... Adam Levine... plastic-free god... or even hotter hottie... or.... (fill in blank).  

OR... what actually happened. (bummer)

I can absolutely imagine the feeling you got when you saw the plastic water bottles... but then to see Adam drink from them... ALL night... must have been like some kind of nightmare.  

 What's interesting is that I had thought that Reverb was doing this tour with Maroon 5 (just as they have done for JJ, JM, DMB, etc).  Hmmm.  

On another note, I've been to shows where the artist refuses to use bottled water and have seen bottled water all over the stage (but never touched!).  It made me think  that just as we as consumers/patrons have to make specific requests to avoid plastics... that artists have to make that extra effort as well with the venues they are playing.  Special instructions and stand so strong that you/we/they repeat them as many times as needed to make sure the requests are heard and actually granted.

This is amazing! I hope he reads it since open letters have made change before. :-) Seriously, I don't understand why millionaire musicians can't get a few stainless steel versions and water boys/girls. I actually would apply for that job... ;-)

OMG, Beth.  This is so funny.  And yes I remember Andy Gibb, etc.  I wish he also didn't use all those toxic substances to tattoo his body.

@Anna@Green Talk I know, I know tattoos are toxic.  It's ironic that I find them so attractive, isn't it?

  1. […] Hill was using a ceramic coffee mug & glasses of water, both reusables. Why is that a big deal? Many artists like Adam Levine tend to use countless plastic water bottles on […]
