Adam Levine: People's Sexiest Man Alive 2013!

Adam Levine is suave in a white tee on the cover of People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2013‘s issue, which hits newsstands on November 22!

“As a musician, you have fantasies that you want to win Grammys, but I didn’t really think that this was on the table,” the 34-year-old Maroon 5 singer shared. “I was just amazed and stunned and it almost seemed like they were kidding, but they weren’t, so that’s cool.”

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Adam Levine

He added about his upcoming wedding nuptials to fiancee Behati Prinsloo, “I didn’t think marriage was for me for a long time. I was ready when I was ready. That’s about as simple as it could possibly be.”

    BEFORE YOU PEOPLE BASH HIM LET ME SAY HE TOTALLY DESERVES THIS!!! HE IS GORGEOUS. If you disagree just turn on The Voice right now and see for yourself! He was all shy and adorable about it too!!

  • anne

    Perfect Choice, Perfect man. YOU GO PEOPLE!!!!

  • Warren

    OMG I need to buy this issue… I NEED that picture!!!!

  • Warren

    Now all he has to do is announce his undying love for Christina Aguilera and everything will be perfect. lmao.


    lol dbag

  • Sunny

    Yes he was “shy and adorable about it” on the show. I love Adam dearly but I don’t know if he totally deserves this. I agree he is sexy and gorgeous at times but maybe not the cover of it, just a spot in the issue.

  • broohaha


  • Kirsten

    Good looking man but definitely not the sexiest. A bit of a strange choice considering they usually only pick actors. I used to love this issue but the past few years choices are a bit bizarre. I feel like the celebs agents campaign for them.

  • premium cookie

    More like stupidest man alive. He doesn’t deserve this title. BAD CHOICE PEOPLE.

  • casey

    um yeah his pr bought this. of all the movie stars they pick a judge from a nbc singing show.

  • mom50

    BOOOOOO!! Sexy is about attitude also. Adam may be handsome and funny but he is immature for his age. Breaking up with a girlfriend via text message is really lame. He shouldn’t get the cover. I bet money him and his fiancé never walk down the aisle. Hugh Jackman or Chris Hemsworth would be a better choice. oh well

  • Oneday

    So they quote him in the magazine. Means he knew about it ahead of time. And I assume inside are new pics from some photoshoot they did for this issue. So he wasn’t surprised. Of course he acted all shy and humble. What’s he supposed to do. I think it’s part of his schtick. I don’t think he deserved this at all. I think it was bought and paid for. JMO though.
    Let the attacks begin!!

  • Not really

    This guy, sexy, really?

  • Sayer

    He’s gross. People needs to end this title. It’s officially dead. This guy is sleazy. Did Ryan Gosling reject them, again? Was Henry Cavill not available? Gross.

  • angel

    I’m happy for Adam!

  • Anne

    I was expecting a comment in this (bought & paid for by PR) issue about how BEHATI made him change his mind about marriage. Generic and boring.

  • CJ


  • living in a box

    this is the reason why i never read people magazine. full of crap!

  • sarah

    awe yay i love him. well deserved!!!!

  • Roxanne

    I KNEW IT…………………………………………………………….

  • LOL

    This is a joke. And this title bestowed upon him only proves how utterly ridiculous it is…there are a slew of hotter sexier men in Hollywood and this rail thin bone is not one..the editors of this magazine must be women stuck in tween mentality.

  • Louise

    It is time for People to give up this designation if Adam Levine is considered sexy. Love his music; but sexy he is not.

  • Guest

    But he isn’t even good-looking. He has no sex appeal at all

  • No way!!!

    Eewww……You’ve got to be JOKING.

    Firstly the rest of the WORLD would hardly even knows who this guy is, being a judge on the AMERICAN version of the Voice ONLY makes him well known n the US!!!

    Maroon 5 had one hit a few years ago but that STILL didn’t make HIM a household name around the world!

    In what universe is Levine sexier than Chris Hemsworth????????

    People magazine should just rename it “America’s sexiest man alive” as the majority of people would be asking WHO IS THIS GUY????

    Whereas Chris Hemsworth has been in back to back hit movies.
    Thor, The Advengers, Snow White & the Huntsmen, Thor 2, the dark world & the critically acclaimed film Rush.

    Plus he’s incredibly handsome, talented, charismatic, has the hottest body on the planet, is funny, down to earth AND a nice guy!!!

    Levine over Chris Hemsworth….Pfft.

  • Abby

    hahahaha People Mag is a joke
    their choice is so stupid it’s funny

  • Is this a joke?

    It should have been CHRIS HEMSWORTH!!!

  • Huh?

    It’s all about PR.

    Just like when People named Qwenth Paltrow the most beautiful person in the world & EVERYONE knew it was BS.

    Adam Levine is AVERAGE looking & has ZERO sex appeal and there are far sexier guys than him on every level.

  • Lolololol

    An NBC judge on a singing show is sexier than the God of Thunder…

  • Oh please

    Levine is so gawky looking & not in the least bit “sexy”…so wrong!

  • Modelenia

    Ok, i having doubt. This voting only Amuricans? or for all too? I like David Beckham and Hugh Jackmann. They both very very sexy. Adam is cute, but Beckham more sexy.

  • jo

    Great publicist…… whore no talent.

  • Facts

    How much did it cost him to buy this Title? Wonder if i can buy it for my boyfriend next year, as a birthday gift.
    He employs a great PR firm.

  • Roxanne


  • Oneday

    If you zoom into the magazine cover it says “photographed exclusively for People in Miami”. When was he in Miami? We know he was in NYC Wednesday afternoon to Saturday night. And in LA doing the Voice Monday and Tuesday before that. So did they take these pics awhile ago? His hair does look longer to me than in the last 3 JJ stories. How long has he known about this award??

  • I Wonder

    The People website is pretty much filled with not so nice comments about Adam getting the cover. I don’t think the cover is all that bad looking. I am curious to know more about what he talked about with people and what they exactly ask him about his relationship with Behati. I don’t know if they will glaze over the fact that he’s been with two Victoria’s Secret models. We all know that they very well could bring up Anne and or reveal the picture of him naked with her hands covering up his goods. That picture could be in that interview or the one that Behati shot out over Instagram. I am banking that it will be the one BP took.

  • Who?

    I don´t even know who he is. A musician apparently, but I have never heard one song by him or seen pictures up until last week or so, when JJ went crazy posting about him. So sexiest man alive … hardly !

  • Oneday

    I wonder how they decide who will get this “award”. There is no vote by people that read the magazine or anything. People Magazine itself just decides I guess. So it has to be some sort of deal. Publicists and PR people must campaign for their clients. But remember what someone said on another thread. Time Warner owns People Magazine and CBS. VS fashion show airs on CBS. Adam was at the FS putting on his own show “to support his fiancee” which brought in a lot of press for VS and probably viewers when the show airs in December because people will now want to see Adam in the audience. So like I said before, this all seems too planned. Bought and paid for.

    People Magazine named Gwyneth Paltrow most beautiful
    and now names this guy a lot of people do not know the sexiest…
    The next thing will be name Kristen Stewart or Sandra Bullock

  • lesley

    what a joke!

  • SS

    Hahahaha what? Is it April yet?

  • I Wonder

    @Oneday: This photo shoot was done some time ago. They usually do them about several months in advance but after they have conducted their photo shoots of all the men they have listed they go through all photographs to determine at a later date who will be the person for the title. This issue usually takes a lot longer. It is somewhat similar on how they conduct their SI Swimsuit issue. The head staff then sits and debate and discuss on who should get the title. You can tell this issue took some time.

  • alina

    wow people mag has gone so lowwwww

  • Holly

    I agree with all who said it should have been CHRIS HEMSWORTH!!

  • leelee

    Re vote

  • Beck

    @Oneday: It was taken when he was on tour in FL this past summer. He’s known about it for a while!

  • Oneday

    @I wonder and @Beck. Thanks for the info. That’s what I thought. Those pics had to be from a while ago.

  • Wurry

    Seductive? ???

  • I Wonder

    @Beck: People magazine always has the most sexiest issue fall on either a November issue or a December issue. They don’t make their decision until sometime mid-September or sometime in October on who is in the running for the cover.

  • Beck

    @I Wonder: I’m pretty sure it doesn’t ALWAYS happen during this time frame. I’m almost 99% sure it happened while he was in Florida over the summer because him and the band had a few days off between their shows and Adam was spotted in Miami during that time.
