Maroon 5 are out of the loop
American band Maroon 5 reveal that being so busy with music has left them "off the pulse".
When asked about new and international music acts in popular culture, Maroon 5's guitarist James Valentine struggled to answer. The Evening Standard reports that touring was his reason for not having heard of Tinie Tempah:
"I think my finger is off the pulse right now. I don't know who he is but I'll put it on my list."
"We haven't been touring over here for a while so maybe that's why I haven't heard of him."
In addition to not being familiar with the double BRIT award winner's signature style, he had also never heard of Irish hit makers The Script.
Maroon 5 are currently on their European tour, which was hit by scandal on February 16 when a number of fans were turned away from the venue in Bristol after it was revealed they had bought counterfeit tickets, and are set to perform in Birmingham tomorrow night (February 20).
