Adam Levine: I'm a Manwhore

Adam Levine: I'm a Manwhore

Maroon 5 smoothie-in-chief Adam Levine dishes the dirt in the June 2007 issue of Blender magazine, clearing up rumors about being labeled a “manwhore” for his supposed links to numerous starlets.

On being called a “manwhore” by the tabloids: “If being single and enjoying being 28 and having a wonderful time is being a manwhore, then I’m a manwhore…I don’t apologize for my behavior; it’s certainly exaggerated in the press.”

On which Hollywood stereotype is more accurate: Everyone’s gay or everyone’s on cocaine: “Everyone’s gay and on cocaine in Hollywood.”

On breaking his sternum last year while lifting weights: “I was working out backstage with the kind of cable pulleys that you put onto a doorstop. James Valentine, our guitar player, opened the door and basically this really thick rubber cable with a metal carabiner on the end of it snapped with the force of what seemed like a bullet, and hit me right in the middle of my chest. It could have killed me. It lacerated my chest right down the middle, and I had to go to the hospital. I did perform that night, though. They pumped me full of drugs, and I was so high that I actually wanted to play.”

Maroon 5‘s album “It Won’t Be Soon Before Long” opened at No. 1. in the week ended May 28, selling a whopping 429,000 copies. Their 2003 debut, “Songs About Jane,” sold a distant 138,000.

Pictures below include Adam Levine and his band Maroon 5 performing to a packed Memorial Day crowd in the Plaza at the Today Show on Monday, TRL on Tuesday and at the ‘Musicians on Call’ Third Annual Benefit Concert and Auction at Sotheby’s on Wednesday.

    these really are a nice bunch of guys. and adam gets stick sometimes, but everytime i’ve seen him, he’s been really cool. he’s a nice guy.

    i’m beyond happy with their first week numbers. they deserve it, they’ve been at it for a long time.

    thanks for giving maroon some love, jared.

  • [Famous Fug Face]

    Dude gets mad buns. Maroon 5 rocks.

  • iloveadam

    Man, he is sooooo hot.

  • Shmoo

    Maybe it’s the overexposure he got with their first album but he bugs me.

  • Karen

    Adam is SO HOT!!! Thanks Jared!

  • Anon

    What is up with this new “image”… suits, ties, all the time they’re out and on TV… what kind of joke is this?!?

  • Luv’nAdam

    Wow…i’m so totally in love with Adam Levine!! He is so incredibly HOT!!..his beautiful eyes, nose, and sexy lips would make me do just about anything with him (sexually)!! When I see him, i just melt. If I was the groupie type, i would follow Adam any and everywhere Maroon 5 performed.

  • Cher

    Adam is very-very HOT, this abum is awesome!

  • wehomo

    I love these boys. So happy to see their success!

  • Liz

    Ewwwwww! Yuck.

  • angelah

    adam’s hot

  • Robin

    I think he is creepy and not attractive at ALL.

    I don’t get it.

  • Michael

    Is that what women lust after? A squeaky-voiced man w/ a bad haircut and whiskers, like, The Justin (diva needs a “The”)?
    I can’t stand Adam. Something about him screams, “I’m arrogant as all hell!”

  • Jessica

    No that is not what women lust after Michael.

  • alana bridges

    this man looks like he sure can keep anyone “coming” every night

  • ellen mara

    Oh Michael, don’t hate on a attractive, rich and famous guy for being arrogant. He can be arrogant if he wants, I can be if I want and so can you. Let people just be. Come on. Just relax and enjoy the eye candy (not this I mean, unless you want to).

    Was there ever a time on this planet when people knew how to accept other people’s flaws and differences? Nope? Yup, didn’t think so.
    Oh, the humanity.

  • joey silverman

    oh, goody, the hippies are back

  • KrungKrung

    he looks kinda gay 2 me, or is he?

  • GQtaste

    When did rock n’ roll become some fag getting his eyebrows teased? He looks like a fagot all glammed up like that. Gayer than a three dollar bill if you ask me.

  • black

    He looks so gay here, but I very much like the music Maroon 5 is playing.

    (He´s a manwhore AND an attentionwhore as well)

  • Al

    Nobody look and act and gayer than John Mayer.
    This dude seems on the level, cool a$$ music that you can really listen to.

  • Mama Bear

    “Manwhore” – that’s funny!

  • Mmmmm

    He has some weird but unique moves but still rocks!

  • Lucie

    HAHA he looks like Forrest Gump in pic 9

  • lauren

    He’s like the only Jew that doesn’t have a huge nose

  • cutie pie

    maroon 5 sucks

  • haley

    He’s a cool guy. Met him up a few times before and after the show and he’s actually nice, as well as the rest of the band. They work hard and deserve everything good that comes their way.

  • polly jean

    There are 2 G’s in faggot dumb as!

  • Adam Levine

    I really love Maroon 5 especially Adam levine!!

  • Adam Levine

    I really love Maroon 5 especially Adam levine!!

  • Samuel

    i don’t like him.
    Maybe he is so crazy about something.

  • Cat

    Wow! I really Don’t know what to say. I mean I (we) don’t know him so i’m not going to say anything negative nor positive. I liked the music more than the words to their songs. He’s cute and I don’t consider being cute positive or negative. They all are cute to me but like I said we don’t know them in real life. What I also notice was that he seems to or appears to be comfortable with being labeled such demenning words and to me that is more interesting and intriging to think about when it comes to Adam, not his looks there are plenty of good looking men out there. Basically what i’m trying to say is Beautiful men have to bring more to the table when comes to gaining my attention and not what they can do for me.

  • Cat

    Sorry I spelled some of the words wrong while typing fast, but you all get what i’m trying to say. Smiles

  • emily

    OMG.adam is soo hot …i love him soo much!!

  • cortney

    omg….i don’t get y ppl think this guy is hot??….now if u r talkin about hot guys then talk about zac efron!!!!!!……now that is a hottie!!!!





  • Nikki

    OMG some of you are really up your own backsides, this guys is just trying to make a living like all of us and all you can do is slag him off. get a grip. Ok so adam may not be attractive to some of you, but is there really any need to put him down!!!!! he is a really good guy ans a great talented singerand i think the album sales show that.

    for all of you that have sat there and slagged him off you have really shown the world your high of intelligence, i bet not one of you have listened to the albums coz if you had you may change your minds!!! and fair enough if that isnt your choice of music but at least give the guy a chance.

    At the end of the day there is already to much pain and suffering going on in the world for yous all to add to it with your negativity about this poor guy who has done nothing wrong.

    Get a grip!!!!

  • Jordyn

    I love Adam Levine and Maroon 5. They are amazingly talented and wonderful people. I think this ‘arrogant manwhore’ image is quite funny, and I think the band would agree with me =P In every interview they give, they seem to joke about it and laugh it off.

    For those of you who don’t agree with me, I’d like to see you make it to number 1 on the Billboard Top 100.

    And I have to say that Adam Levine is just orgasmic. I couldn’t leave that out.

  • cortney

    ok people adam levine is not i repeat is NOT hot!!!!…..ZAC EFRON IS THE HOT SHOT HERE!!!…..SO SUCK ON THAT!!!…..

  • kessie

    o adam youre sooo hot im going to l.a this summer just to see hes concert i have backstage passe im going to ask him out if hes not dating some won

  • Holly

    Lauren… that was extreamly rude! Not all jewish ppl have large noses.

  • Lea

    Don’t care who you are, a male that sleeps around is disgusting. I would take a sweet, non-rock star over his ugly, feminine ass anyday. Any woman over 14 years old agrees. Levine is an overrated a**hole!
