A man threw a bag of powdered sugar as Levine was leaning into the crowd of fans, and the sugar got all over the singer's face and shoulders. He remained calm after the attack, but looked shaken. Clearly he did not see that coming.

The sugar bomber is reportedly the same man who threw a rock at Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson last week. A rep for Kimmel told Hollywood Reporter, "Immediately after the incident occurred, Jimmy Kimmel Live security followed protocol and alerted LAPD, who responded quickly and are looking into the situation." 

Sugar bombing may sound funny, but for Levine it must have been a little scary. After the initial flash of irritation and shock at having stuff thrown at you, your second thought would be, "WTF was that, and could it kill me?" There could have been Anthrax or acid mixed in the sugar for all he knows. People do crazy things. Thankfully it really was just sugar. 

The suspect has been arrested for battery, according to TMZ. I hope that stops anyone else from trying the same thing. Celebs may be rich and privileged and surrounded by bodyguards, but even they deserve more safety and respect than this.

How would you feel if a stranger suddenly threw a bag of powdered sugar at you?
