Adam Levine is everywhere. He just finished up the second season of The Voice and is now getting ready to film his first acting role on the TV show, American Horror Story. If that wasn’t enough, his band Maroon 5 is getting ready to release their fourth album, Overexposed, on June 22, which features “Payphone.”
Though Levine has never been one to keep his mouth shut, the June/July issue of Details, reveals a few new tidbits about the buff frontman. Check out some of the most interesting below.
• Levine is not as dumb as he looks.
While his bandmates were up in the air about doing a reality TV show, Levine thought it would be a great way to prove he actually had a brain.
“I felt like people only knew me as a singer who dated pretty girls. A little bit of a bimbo,” he said. “Maybe I was kind of a bimbo”
Though he didn’t really have a problem with being known as “the music dude that was naked all the time with the girls,” the first season of The Voice, which he won with Javier Colon, showed that he knew a thing or two about the industry.
• Even Blake Shelton has a crush on the guy.
“The first time I went to Adam’s house,” says the country singer, “I told him, ‘Man, you’re exactly the rock star I wanted you to be.’ There’s a grand piano in his bedroom. From his pool outside, you look up the hill and there’s the Hollywood sign. I mean, there were models hanging around. It was badass.”
The fellow Voice judge went on to say that Adam is the most real, honest, easy-to-talk-to person in show business. “He’s just a good dude with superhero powers.”
• But what does Christina really think of Adam?
Well, after a tumultuous season, which had the two at odds, Aguilera admits, “Adam and the judges are like brothers to me…But Adam is definitely the more sensitive of the bunch. He has a softer side people don’t see.”
• Levine tells us what kind of man he is.
“There’s two kinds of men,” Levine explained. “There are men who are f***ing misogynist pigs, and then there are men who just really love women, who think they’re the most amazing people in the world. And that’s me. Maybe the reason I was promiscuous, and wanted to sleep with a lot of them, is that I love them so much.”
The “She Will Be Loved” singer is newly single after breaking up with Russian model, Anne Vyalitsyna last month.
