Adam Levine: 'I Can be a Huge Pain in the Ass'

Adam Levine: 'I Can be a Huge Pain in the Ass'

Adam Levine takes the cover of Paper Magazine‘s May issue, on newsstands April 27.

Here’s what the 33-year-old Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice coach had to share:

On his jam-packed schedule: “I just hope this isn’t the case when I’m 40. I turned 33 and I thought, ‘OK, this is exactly where I need to be,’ and why should I stop until I get to a point where I can, and say, ‘F— this, I’m going to go play golf.’”

On marriage: “I’m extremely fascinated by [it]. I want to study marriage. I want to learn about it. I want to know it. I want to figure out whether or not I want to do it. I’m not just going to leap into it, because that’s not good for anybody.”

On his personality: “I can be a huge pain in the ass, huge pain in the ass. That’s part of who I am and there’s not a person I know who doesn’t think I’m a pain in the ass. But I’m also really nice and a completely affable and socially adept person. There’s a difference between being an asshole and a pain in the ass.”

  • Lynn

    You can be pain in the ass but your hawtness makes up for it ;-)

    That marriage response makes me think that’s what broke up him and his now ex…Maybe she was too pushy?

  • Ploop

    Something annoys me with him. Somehow I can’t stand him.

  • dodo

    At least he admits it…

  • Keebs

    Exactly, at least he`s straightforward. Rumour has it that Anne broke up with him because she wanted to get married and he wasn`t ready to put a ring on it. They were only together 2 yrs! Besides, its well documented that he`s not 100% sure about marriage. Her loss anyways.

    marriage takes discipline and sacrifice – qualities he obviously lacks since it seems he’s more interested in his appearance and fame whoring.

  • porknpie

    he has all those silly tats that he thinks makes him look tuff, LMAO Lame ……. as son as he opens his mouth its over …!

  • nyob

    I love Maroon 5′s music, but every time I see him, all I see is a super nerd who lucked out and became a rock star. The inner geek in him is strong and really shows through just about all the time.

  • Blair

    Wow, how people hate. No matter what, Adam Levine is superb and authentic. He deserves all the attention and success!

  • Mel

    @bird is a word: Just because you want dear.

  • Screen

    He is not hot at all! And his singing voice is unexceptional and a pain in the ass too…

  • Mary

    @Screen: You’re blind and deaf for sure!!!!

  • Sandra

    For those who say Adam Levine is a bad singer or isn’t hot. Take a look. Maroon 5 in RockinRio 2011 LIVE! They are amazing and Adam is awesome!

  • Keebs

    @nyob: I dunno about anyone else, but I absolutely LOVE his inner nerd!!! :)

  • Lu

    Adam is talented, genuine, and doesn’t care about anything else than being true to himself. I like that a lot. He’s right about being careful with marriage: people can use him, and not for love, but for fame ( i.e his past lame model girlfriend, who failed in dragging him into a marriage which would have never survived).
    He will marry once he stops being all around the world.
    And hopefully with someone as beautiful, true and honest as he is.

  • piece of me

    Yes, we can tell just by looking at you.

  • Butter_Fly

    At least he’s smart enough to admit it! That counts for something, right?

  • DJB

    Bird is a word… I’m gay. Never gotten that vibe from him. Also, he’s done an interview in Out magazine, and he shared the coming out story of his brother. In brief, he said his brother who was in high school told his family that he was gay. And, their response was that they had known him since a little child and loved him anyway! It was a really sweet story!
