stalking-Adam-Levine

Stalking takes place when a person, who has no legal reason to keep in touch with you, bothers you after you have told them that you want to be left alone. A stalker can be your ex-partner, a perfect stranger or one of your acquaintances. Stalkers tend to call a victim and hang up, leave gifts, send text messages, show up in places where you usually hang out or they spread rumours about you on the Internet. If you are harassed by someone and you feel afraid or unsafe, don’t hesitate to contact your local police.

Can stalking get into something even more serious? The answer is yes. Back in 2011 Joss Stone, a British singer, had creepy stalkers. Two black men plotted to break into her house in order to kill her. When they were found at Stone’s house both men were in possession of hammers, a samurai sword and a body bag! Luckily, the police managed to catch them red-handed before they decapitated the singer. This is just one of numerous examples of celeb stalking, but it is worth noting that criminal harassment afflicts ordinary people as well.

Adam Levine, Maroon 5’s frontman, appears in a highly provocative video clip titled Animals. It features him as a psychotic who is totally obsessed with a beautiful customer (Behati Prinsloo who’s Levine’s wife). The video depicts a typical stalker’s fantasy that is ready to follow his victim until he gets what he desires – his prey. Apart from the brutal imagery of the video, Animals’ lyrics seem to be filled with creepy delusions of something that the stalker calls a happy relationship. Even though Maroon 5’s clip has been condemned due to its sexual content, Levine doesn’t get distressed by critics’ reviews. „I had this crazy idea … it’s really dark and weird and cool. It’s really crazy” he mentioned a few days after having released the video. No matter how heartbreaking or disgusting Animals may appear to the majority of people, it forces the viewer to think about stalking. And I guess Adam Levine can say „mission accomplished.”

If you’re of age (18+), watch the video and read the lyrics to understand the notion of stalking.

Baby, I’m preying on you tonight

Hunt you down, eat you alive

Just like animals, animals, like animals

Maybe you think that you can hide

I can smell your scent from miles

Just like animals, animals, like animals

Baby, I’m…

So what you trying to do to me

It’s like we can’t stop, we’re enemies

But we get along when I’m inside you

You’re like a drug, that’s killing me

I cut you out entirely

But I get so high when I’m inside you

Yeah, you can start over

You can run free

You can find other fish in the sea

You can pretend it’s meant to be

But you can’t stay away from me

I can still hear you making that sound

Taking me down, rolling on the ground

You can pretend that it was me, but no

Baby, I’m preying on you tonight

Hunt you down, eat you alive

Just like animals, animals, like animals

Maybe you think that you can hide

I can smell your scent from miles

Just like animals, animals, like animals

So if I run, it’s not enough

You’re still in my head, forever stuck

So you can do what you wanna do

I love your lies, I’ll eat them up

But don’t deny the animal

That comes alive when I’m inside you

Yeah, you can start over

You can run free

You can find other fish in the sea

You can pretend it’s meant to be

But you can’t stay away from me

I can still hear you making that sound

Taking me down, rolling on the ground

You can pretend that it was me, but no

Baby, I’m preying on you tonight

Hunt you down, eat you alive

Just like animals, animals, like animals

Maybe you think that you can hide

I can smell your scent from miles

Just like animals, animals, like animals

Baby, I’m…

Don’t tell no lie, lie, lie, lie

You can’t deny, ny, ny, ny

The beast inside, side, side, side

Yeah, yeah, yeah

No, girl, don’t lie, lie, lie, lie

You can’t deny, ny, ny, ny

The beast inside, side, side, side

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Just like animals, animals, like animals

Baby, I’m preying on you tonight

Hunt you down, eat you alive

Just like animals, animals, like animals

Maybe you think that you can hide

I can smell your scent from miles

Just like animals, animals, like animals
