Spanish translation:See below
Explanation:
The meaning is:
Oye, gente. Adam Horovitz está bueno. Quiero hacerlo mío. Deja un recado.
N.B. A British use of "shag" is to have sexual intercourse. That could be the meaning here, if the origin of the text is British.

Unas ideas solamente, Rachel


Explanation:
Me imagino que la palabra difícil es "to shag him". Creo dependerá del resto del contexto(p.e. si se está en contra o a favor). Me explico: Encuentro dos acepciones intereantes para shag: (1)ahuyentar, perseguir y (2) bailar cierta danza en EUA brincando alternadamente en uno y otro pié. Es decir, la persona lo quiere ahuyentar y hacer correr o lo quiere festejar, celebrar. Que opinas? Espero sea de ayuda.
