‘Shameless’ star Adam Levine says ‘I’m going to be the next David Letterman’ in new promo
Adam Levine has a new video for the song “Shameless.”
The Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter will open the video for “Shake Me Like a Hurricane” by David Lettermans classic, “All the Good Times.”
Levine will perform “Shame” at the Grammy Awards on Jan. 31, 2019.
In the video, Levine will tell the story of how he met Letterman, a fellow musician, and how Letterman became his best friend.
Levine was raised by his grandmother in the Bronx, New York, but moved to Los Angeles in 1996.
He was first exposed to the Lettermans show in the late ’90s when he was a student at New York University.
He went on to perform at the University of Southern California, the University at Buffalo and the University and the Academy of Music.
In his latest performance, Levine tells the story about how he learned Letterman’s style.
He said, “It’s an old-school, honest-to-goodness, no-nonsense, honest, down-to the bone kind of music.
And it’s the one that everybody listens to.
And we were all just hanging out.
And then we all got on the plane and we all started going to Letterman.
So I think that’s what really helped me get hooked up to him.”
In the clip, Levine said he would go on the Letterman show for a week and “make some mistakes and get really good at what I did on the show.
And I just kind of fell into it and I kind of took it for granted.”
He said, in the new video, “I’m very lucky.
I got to meet Letterman before he died.
He died a year ago.
So that was pretty amazing to me.”
