Maroon 5 use strippers for pranks

Maroon 5 star Adam Levine loves playing pranks on tour.

The frontman admits he has a penchant for joking around with support bands, and revealed he once hired male strippers to embarrass The Donnas.

He told the New York Post newspaper: “We were on tour with The Donnas, and we were partying backstage and we hired male strippers. So these male cheeseball strippers came in and the Donnas were panicking. These guys kind of looked like cops, enough to fool them.

“Once everyone realised they were strippers, one of the guys plugged in the music to start dancing, and by then everyone was over it, and it was extraordinarily uncomfortable!”

Adam recently revealed he uses yoga to stay in shape while he is on the road with Maroon 5.

He said: “Yoga is by far the most convenient way to exercise when I’m on tour. You don’t need anything but a few feet of space and a mat.”
