Adam Levine Talks Being Promiscuous, Enjoying The Spotlight & More in Details’ Latest Issue
Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice judge Adam Levine covers the June/July 2012 issue of Details Magazine. Wearing a Prada (yes people Prada) t-shirt, the singer manages to look as sexy as ever, which was never a doubt.
Inside the issue and his cover story entitled Adam Levine: The New King Of Pop (I’m willing to argue over that), he speaks on being promiscuous when he was younger, enjoying the spotlight, the two types of men when it comes to women and much more. Take a look at a few excerpts from his interview, and check out his Norman Jean Roy–directed photo shoot below.
On being in the spotlight and enjoying it:
“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.'”
On the two types of men when it comes to women & being promiscuous:
“There’s two kinds of men. There are men who are f**king 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 his extended family helping him with women:
“One of my theories on why I’m so capable of understanding women is that after my parents split, my mom moved in with her brother’s ex-wife—my aunt—who was also newly single. So I was living in a house with two jilted women, plus my cousin, who’s more like my sister, and my brother, Michael, who we eventually find out is gay. Just the estrogen alone . . . You know when you’re 14 and terrified to talk to a girl? I didn’t suffer much from that. It seemed very natural to me to talk to girls.”
