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.
