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.”

    M5 also did a concert in West Palm Beach Florida in mid-September which fits the time-line.

  • I Wonder

    @Beck: No, the photos were taken when he was on tour, you are correct on that.

  • Jessie

    There is no such thing as the sexiest man alive. Today he’s on the mag cover, next year it’ll be someone else who’s been around for a long time. They didn’t suddenly get sexy or unsexy. It’s just another thing to keep people buying this magazine. Each person’s definition of sexy is different and they’re not all going to agree on one person. The only reason they keep putting out these stupid fake honors is to sell something. Even the title is stupid: Sexiest Man Alive. lol Jennifer Aniston is the sexiest woman of all time according to one magazine. I’m still laughing at that.

  • umm

    He doesn’t even come close to the past winners;
    Ryan Reynolds, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Johnny Depp, Bradley Cooper, Matt Damon, Matthew McConaughey.

    He is not even in their league

  • Pulease

    Well if he knew about it beforehand all it really tells us is that he is a good liar and a better actor than anyone thought.

  • Good for Him!

    I watched Adam on a late-night show recently, and I found him to be extremely funny and charming.

  • Jessica

    People Magazine really have no taste.
    First Gwyneth and now Adam Levine

  • anotherlurker

    We all have our own definition of sexy … I’m good with People’s choice this year … I’ve always found Adam to be gorgeous and sexy.

  • Cee-lo

    More like Grossest Man Alive. Such a dbag as well.

  • Juliana

    He’s cute but definitely not the sexiest man alive, he’s too skinny & girly for that.

  • Gwa

    Im surprised too. But is it safe to say that Tom Hiddleston woulve been better? Hiddles ♥

  • SS

    Jokes apart, they chose this jackass over Hiddleston, Hemsworth and a host of other people who could have fit the bill? Actually, it is a joke.

  • Rhonda

    BOOOOO!!! He has a sexy voice, but I don’t think he is that sexy in the looks dept. to earn this award. Skinny and all tattooed up just isn’t attractive. He sort of looks like Don Adams from the 60/70′s show Get Smart and that guy really wasn’t that attractive either.

  • faye

    Hmm sexiest? Really? I guess he’s ok looking and mildly charming but I just don’t see it.

  • Jill

    I don’t know who makes these decisions. It has to be a political favor of some sort I bet. No way is Adam Levine the sexiest man alive. His body is scrawny and he doesn’t have much of a masculine look about him. =>

  • premium cookie

    He can’t be Americas sexiest man alive, he hates this country remember lol. J/k I’m still blown away. Popsugar reported people have been very vocal about how they disagree with People mags choice. They also said being with behati sexys him up but the pic of the two of them looks horrible.

  • Pulease

    Well the thing is he’s got it now.
    Why didn’t they put a picture of Adam on the front of the magazine instead of one of the boys from One Direction,?..

  • lol

    Is this another bad joke? People is f-cking blind and delusional as always. They want to makes us believe this guy is sexier than Cavill, Fassbender or Gosling??? C’mon!?

  • marnie

    ew.. just ew. He is so annoying and definately not sexy.

  • Huh

    @I Wonder: You are absolutely correct. The photo shoots for all the candidates for Sexiest Man Alive are done a few months in advance. His was likely done in September while he was on tour. That DOES NOT mean that he knew he had the title in September, just that he knew he was being considered. Then all the publicist for each candidate lobby People Magazine to get the top spot. Adam’s publicist no doubt threw a lot of money and resources into getting this title for him. It is likely that he knew a week or so in advance, but was contractually obligated not to reveal anything. The public just needs to realize that this is how the game is played. I’m happy to see him have to title, although it may backfire on him.

  • Huh

    I was dying to talk about this Access Hollywood interview yesterday, but I didn’t want to detract from the conversation about Maroon 5. Anyway, toward the end he’s asked about a bachelor party and he bascially says he’d rather go on a golf tour.

  • OhCanada

    ahahha. There is nothing sexy about this effeminate loser.

    Chris Hemsworth should hold this title. Idris Elba or someone who is an actual man.

    People has jumped the shark. They did when they named Fishsticks Paltrow the most beautiful woman.

  • lol

    April Fools’. Ah, wait … we are in November? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Great joke, People. Now give it to a REAL SEXY MAN, please.

  • Pulease

    @Huh, thanks for that.
    What is the point of this award then if it’s left to stars publicists to lobby People, how does that work?, what do they do?, is Jordan Feldstein, Adams manager, also his publicist?.

  • Huh

    @Pulease: The point of the Award is to 1) sell magazines and 2) get a lot of media attention for the star, which will hopefully lead to more business opportunites. No, Jordan is not Adam’s publicist. I think his publicist is a woman. Jamie or Kayla who post here probably know.

  • Pulease

    @Huh, thanks but how do they go about securing it for the celebrity that’s what I don’t get.

  • st


  • Huh

    @Pulease: I don’t know the inner workings of the game. I just know it is a game. You follow celebrity crap long enough you begin to pick up on a few things.

  • Marcella

    @Huh: I also saw it … never seen a man so excited about anything about marriage (I’m being ironic). The animated Cee it was also exciting.

  • Marcella

    I spoke at some past post, that the life of Adam a while back here suddenly changed. Became a brand. This happens when some “powerful” chooses and works hard on the artist. When the famous starts appear anywhere, you can be sure that he is the “chosen” of the time. While you payback, advertising remains. This also happened with Channing Tatum. The magazine did not pick the winner to give a “raised” in fame, they choose someone who is on top. Adam may not be as sexy, but he has a good sex appeal and his face is everywhere. In our world it is just a label, in the celebrity world title this is gold. He deserves as an artist he has the complete package.

  • Pulease

    @Huh, I know I am being really dim but I just don’t see the point of it all. Loved the golf tour comment.

  • Huh

    @Pulease: Oh, you wanted it to have a point!

  • Pulease

    His picture on the front of the magazine has been photoshopped to death, had they left him alone I might!!!!!!, have seen their point but they’ve made him look eligible for a boy band , young enough to pull a 24 yr old even.

  • Kayla

    Go to and watch Adams new commercial. Very interesting.

  • Cheri

    @Pulease-We expected this, didn’t we? Isn’t this what the whole BP thing is all about? Adam is plastered all over everywhere and she got to do the VSFS.

    As for sexiest man alive, I happen to think he is very sexy. As for Clooney, YUCK!!!!!!!!!! Brad Pitt is not good looking to me and George Clooney is one of the ugliest men in my opinion. Not to mention, he’s more cocky than Kobe Bryant! I can’t stand Clooney! But I’m not going to call people idiots because theylike him. It’s their opinion and they’re entitled. People are attracted to different people.

    There is nothing saying Adam knew ahead of time and I don’t believe he did. I think he knew it was possible but not in the bag.

    Don’t believe everything you read. We’ve said many times how these sites take something and twist it into what they want it to be because it sells. Just because the tabs report he broke up with all his GF’s via text, doesn’t mean it’s true. Just because they say BP changed his mind about marriage doesn’t mean it’s true. Maybe Adam isn’t quite the DB people think he is. I’m not saying he’s an angel and God knows there are things he has said or done that I’ve seen and heard straight from the source that made me want to slap the ever loving bat poop out of him but nobody is perfect. Unless anyone here really does know him personally, we shouldn’t be judging him by every stupid little thing hte tabloids say about him.

    I still don’t believe it was his rep that leaked the engagement news. I still don’t believe that the engagement is real. I don’t believe he loves BP and I don’t believe she loves him. They are equally guilty for this charade because either of them could have said no. He isn’t perfect but let’s stop bashing him like he committed murder!

    Okay, Hemsworth is gorgeous. I would’ve supported that decision. Maybe he’ll get it next time.

    As for watching the Voice last night, did anyone else notice the little jab by Blake? Adam knew it too. You could tell by the look on his face and how he got up to go hug Blake. Blake said, “I think your sexy on the inside”. It was a total slam to Adam regarding his interview with Kelly and Michael.

    BP hasn’t been mentioned on the Voice. There aren’t a million photos or stories about her being at the Voice. He doesn’t stay at her apartment when he’s in NY. I think this is going to end soon and I think it’s Pulease who said they’ll make up some story about being apart made them realize it but they’re still friends.

    Okay, I’ve had 3 shots of espresso this morning and I’m still trying to get rid of that flea I got from Patch so please forgive the rant.

  • Huh

    @Marcella: Yeah. A bachelor party is a rite of passage. It’s supposed to be something you only enjoy once in your lifetime and it didn’t come across to me as something he was looking forward to having.

  • Kayla

    Bee was at the Voice on Monday night. There were tweets about them kissing during the commercials. She was not there last night. She is in St Barts. At the exact time Carson announced Adams title, Bee posted her latest IG. A dig maybe?

  • Pulease

    @Cheri, Go Cheri, yes of course all this nonsense was expected but you have to laugh.
    None of the ones you mentioned are my type, now Jamie Dornan mmmmm, that could of course just be the Christian Grey effect.
    Naughty Patch no more treats for you.
    That Blake quote is really funny don’t you just love him, now there’s a thought………..

  • Marcella

    @Kayla: Loved the video. Is it me or are still working the image of man “just for one night”? I loved the bid of scattered clothes, to define his style. I see it happening every day.

  • Ebonyza Stooge

    He’s too stupid to be sexy. Not the sharpest tool in the shed. UGH.

  • Kayla

    I was just reading that Bradley Cooper broke up with Zoe Saldana a few weeks after he was named SMA and Ryan Reynolds announced his divorce one month after. The committed relationship is part of the SMA package, but once the title is bestowed it can just fade away quietly.

  • Marcella

    @Huh: Marriage is not only the ceremony. The bachelor party is a part. You can do alone or with friends. But it’s important. It’s celebration for failing to be single and have found a woman to share his life and not regret being married.

  • Kayla

    @Marcella: Adam loves being portrayed like that. Leave the girl in bed. Don’t even kiss her goodbye!

  • Pulease

    Yeah great video, what a charmer, and he wrecks your apartment before he leaves.LOL

  • Marcella

    It is true. If the movie “Fifty Shades of Grey” is successful, this title has already the winner (Jamie Dornan).

  • angel

    I adore Adam. I’ll make no apologies for it. Last night I was jubilant for him. It’s nice to see him get something that I’m sure many of his fans knew that he wanted. But now it all seems bittersweet. The phrase, be careful what you wish for, comes to mind.

  • Waha

    LOL this becomes a bigger joke every year. If they weren’t going a big movie actor type then Matt Bomer got robbed…he is sexier than this fragile guy.

  • Pulease

    Oh Matt B is a honey.

  • angel

    @Cheri: I love your rants!

  • Marcella

    OMG! Matt Bomer is wonderful, it is the Christian Grey in my dreams. Unfortunately, there is still a lot of prejudice in the world. Can not make the film for his sexual orientation. Holy shit, at least he is proud of what is and is not hiding in the closet.
    @ Kayla is because he has that image. But I can not get that image of him, for me this picture is “crafted”, is not what he really is. I may be wrong, but that’s my opinion.
