Capital Breakfast With Roman Kemp 6am - 10am
As two of the most in-demand men in pop music today, it's time to draw lines in the sand between these two heartthrobs and compare their hits, their moves on the dance floor and, of course… their style! Join Capital as we take a look at 'Moves like Jagger' star Adam and 'Blurred Lines' singer Robin!
They may both be pop singers at heart, but that hasn't stopped both these in-demand men from heading outside of their genre comfort zones for the right duet partners! Adam teamed up with Kanye back in 2005 on the song 'Heard 'Em Say' and last year collaborated with both 50 Cent and Eminem on the song 'My Life'. And Robin is no slacker in the hip-hop team-up department either…having songs with the likes of T.I., Kendrick Lamar and…Snoop Dogg!
You only have to look at these two gentlemen of pop's music videos to see that BOTH Adam and Robin have some seriously good moves when the moment calls for it. From Adam's Mick Jagger-esque hip gyrations in the 'Moves Like Jagger' video to Robin's too-cool-for-school 'Blurred Lines' moves, which one's your favourite?
Both Adam and Robin have been big fans of a big of facial fuzz over the years. While Robin keeps his goatee in peak trimmed condition during his musical duties, Adam tends to go all out with a full-on bushy beard… who gets your man-beard vote for the win?
'Stereo Hearts' singer Adam has had a fair few ladies over the years, and they've always tended to be supermodels, though he's now happily settled with fiancé Behati Prinsloo. Meanwhile despite ladies around the world swooning over his dance moves Robin's actually been happily married for the past eight years to actress Paula Patton!
Between Adam dominating the airwaves as a panelist on The Voice US for the past several years, to Robin's (sadly brief) stint on Duets, these pair have got it covered when it comes to judging the next wave of talent. Can we get a #ThickeOnXFactor hashtag going soon?
Despite both rocking a more casual look during their performances and video shoots, there's no doubt Robin and Adam can both rock a smart suit & tie when the occasion calls for it. While Adam has become a true pro at smartening up for the red carpet, Robin prefers to keep things casual…even when he's suited up!
No huge pop star would be seen without mingling with a few famous faces... and these two know how to do it in style. Whether it's kicking it with Goldenballs himself at the basketball or posing on the red carpet with Nicole Richie - these two know how to do it and do it well!
While Adam's been racking up hits with his band Maroon 5 for many years now, Robin's also been working hard and released his sixth studio album this year! Don't expect to see these gents leaving the charts for long anytime soon.
While their primary focus is ALWAYS scoring their next hit on the charts, being two gentlemen of many talents Robin and Adam have also explored careers outside of singing. Robin has been a successful songwriter for other artists, including Christina Aguilera, for several years now while Adam has been stretching his acting muscles recently including a starring role on American Horror Story!
Though both US stars have built up reputations as being friendly chaps…but that doesn't mean they shy away from controversy! Whether it's Robin's widely cited performance with the ever-raunchy Miley Cyrus at this year's VMAs or Adam smooching a Victoria's Secret model on stage, these gents have the shock factor well and truly covered!
