Adam Levine: Why I Was Promiscuous

Adam Levine: Why I Was Promiscuous

Adam Levine is crowned the new king of pop on the cover of Details magazine‘s June 2012 issue.

Here’s what the 33-year-old Maroon 5 front man had to share:

On his personality: “I’m fiercely independent, but I’m also terrified of being alone. I travel in a pack. I like to be surrounded, not just with my boys, but with family, too.”

On women: “There’s two kinds of men. 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.”

On enjoying the spotlight: “I love attention. I can’t stand not having it. It just has to be the right kind. To do what you love, to be with the people you love? That’s all I want. That’s the ‘kwan.’”

    Yean Adam! It looks like you’ve matured. But don’t repeat the same mistakes again: Get rid of fame hungry women, especially famewh@re models !!!

    @brian: I’m sure he doesn’t use autotune, cuz he doesn’t need it. Have you ever listened to him singing live? Just do it.

    He’s a good musician and is so likeable on The Voice but he tries way too hard in interviews. Yeah, he makes good pop – but it sure as sherbert does not make him the KING of pop!

    Adam, honey, your ego it’s pretty big! Just calm down a little bit and stop thinking your the best in the whole world, and everybody loves you!
    I admit: you are hot and you sing well, but there are more important things than those.

    L. Says:

    Adam is charming, smart, talented and handsome.
    He didn’t call himself “king of pop” so bounce off him; the magazine did, and his success tells he’s a decent candidate, at least.
    I hope he finds love again: definitely that Anne V was just using him fir fame, and hopefully next time he will give his heart to someone better than a fake famewh@re with butterface and a huge hunger for paparazzi.
    Adam… Keep being yourself and someone right for you will make you happy forever.
    You rock!

    Maroon 5 are really not good any more. Songs About Jane was a nice, effortless first album. Now they are pretty damn horrible.
