The first time I've ever bought a TV GUIDE. Hotness Adam Levine.


Highlights of the interview

by Shawna Malcom

"Adam's gone from strength to strength...he's a very focused guy, and he deserves everything that's coming his way"- The Voice executive producer Mark Burnett

"The show is Adam at his most nurturing.... he has a lot of wisdom to impart to these singers, and he does it in a sincere way where you can really feel he's looking out for them." - Maroon 5 lead guitarist James Valentine

Levine offers a simpler secret for his success. "I'm not a total idiot. And I definitely have a lot to say."

TV GUIDE: So how's it going with Shakira and Usher?
AL: ... Christina and CeeLo are so close to my heart because we went through the show becoming a success together, and Usher and Shakira are coming into it as a big frickin; institution. So it's different, but it still feels good, because they're legitimate artists.

TV GUIDE: Did you know either of them before The Voice?
AL: I knew Usher. We've worked in the studio a couple times together. Shakira is a new friend, but I love her dearly already. She's so sweet and adorable and hilarious.

TV GUIDE: Might you and Blake Finally get to sit next to each other in Season 4?
AL: Trust me, we need to be separated. If Blake and I sat next to each other, we'd never get anything done. We already yap at each other across the room like we're yelling across the dinner table.

TV GUIDE: On the surface, you guys wouldn't seem to have much in common, yet you've become good friends. Any new experiences he's turned you on to?
AL: Hunting. He mad me shoot a duck. He was like ..."Come on, you sissy!" But I made sure to miss.

TV GUIDE: Did you ever dream you'd become a reality-TV star?
AL: I'm not a reality-TV star. The Voice isn't a show about me going shipping or complaining about stupid fucking mundane shit that no one should ever complain about. "Poor rich me and my caviar problems." That drives me crazy. I hate it! There's a purpose to this show.

TVGUIDE: You date Keira Knightley in your new movie. Rough gig?
AL: Not at all. I swiftly screw her over and then it's a tumultuous relationship. And we're musicians. So a big stretch? No, but Keira's amazing.

TVGUIDE: Since this is the Hot List issue tell us: What's on your personal Hot List?
AL: I'm so into Breaking Bad and Sons of Anarchy. Those are the best shows I've ever seen. Yoga- I d it everywhere I go. I think Mumford & Sons are one of the best bands I've heard over the past decade. I love that there are bands again. For awhile, it seemed like everybody was a solo artist.

TV GUIDE: Would you ever do a solo album?
AL: I don't have any desire. I put too much time, love and care into Maroon 5, and I don't think it would be very cool to abandon my comrades. Also, I've got enough of my own thing going on with the show, it makes going back to the band that much more special.

props to him for refusing to ditch his band

yeah, ia. he does a lot of stuff by himself with the voice and acting but he still gives so much of himself to his band. i respect him a lot for not pulling a justin timberlake. he very easily could so it says a lot about him that he doesn't.

I'd hit it and quit it. He seems like a serious bro, but his body tho...
robertsbox_xo 19th-Nov-2012 08:36 pm (UTC)
he basically is solo already what would be the point of that
phallus 19th-Nov-2012 10:24 pm (UTC)
mte! it's the adam levine band.
nasstasja_sk 19th-Nov-2012 08:36 pm (UTC)
I love him, IDGAF.

And ditto to this, ditto: "Poor rich me and my caviar problems." That drives me crazy.

ferniinberlin 19th-Nov-2012 08:36 pm (UTC)

every day, all the time

And by hug, well, you know.
unique_lilpixie 19th-Nov-2012 08:46 pm (UTC)
Well this article made me like him a little more. I like that he wouldn't leave his band to go solo.

I don't have any desire. I put too much time, love and care into Maroon 5, and I don't think it would be very cool to abandon my comrades. Also, I've got enough of my own thing going on with the show, it makes going back to the band that much more special.

leaves the band in 12 months.
theuglycry 19th-Nov-2012 08:53 pm (UTC)
I've always thought he was a douche. And I feel like Shakira is going to be so boring, does she have a personality?
gorlplz 19th-Nov-2012 08:54 pm (UTC)
omfg yasss plant da seed, adam ughhh <3333
distant_lines 19th-Nov-2012 08:59 pm (UTC)
I know he's probably a douche, but I think I'd still totally love him if I ever met him.
_effinsweet_ 19th-Nov-2012 09:03 pm (UTC)
ive gone from crushing on him to douche and going back to crushing.
what the hell was going on on maroon 5's first performance on snl. i couldnt even hear their music over that awful bright orange/pink matching outfits
cookie_licious 19th-Nov-2012 09:11 pm (UTC)
Even though I think he is a douche, I just like him xD
jjazz59 19th-Nov-2012 09:12 pm (UTC)
Love sexy Adam!
shunda84 20th-Nov-2012 04:01 am (UTC)
Your icon turns me on.
paarycia 19th-Nov-2012 09:20 pm (UTC)
He has the perfect bandmates who don't mind staying in the background, I wouldn't go solo either lol.
schaaawing 19th-Nov-2012 09:58 pm (UTC)
the fact that he likes mumford and sons kinda make me want to like him as well
solestella 19th-Nov-2012 11:34 pm (UTC)
This is so wrong but ever since he gave Melanie that cute hug/lift, I've been Instant Star shipping those two. nope, nope, nope.
