Adam Levine

  • American musician
  • Born March 18, 1979

Adam Noah Levine (born March 18, 1979) is an American singer, songwriter, and actor. He is the lead singer for the pop rock band Maroon 5. Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Levine began his musical career in 1994, when he co-founded the band Kara's Flowers, of which he was the lead vocalist and guitarist. The band split up after their only album, The Fourth World (released in 1997), which did not gain popularity. In 2001, the group was reformed – with guitarist James Valentine joining the line-up – and began a new musical chapter, changing their name to Maroon 5.


Seriously, 'Honey Boo Boo' is the decay of Western civilization. Just because so many people watch the show doesn't mean it's good.




Let's face it, I only practice yoga because the classes are always packed with beautiful women.




Not every song has to be about love and tenderness, sometimes you have those strictly physical feelings for somebody and it's okay to have those feelings.




I'm intelligent enough to survive happily and be compassionate. If I were too smart, I would realize all the ills of the world.




I hate flying. Know why? Because no one really understands how planes actually work.




I love music videos, I really do. I think it's kind of sad that it's a dying art form.




I have a high self-opinion - I don't need to hide that. I don't need to be self-deprecating.




I was a huge Beatles fan. The Stones, Dylan. Later on, I got into Stevie Wonder, and Bill Withers - he's one of my heroes. Al Green, too.




And I think I have a distinct voice.




As a pop star, you don't have to be that smart for people to think you're intelligent.




The only reason I became the singer in the band is because I sang the best. It wasn't out of some desire to be a star or be a famous singer. It's not like I love interviews.




I don't want to be an actor, but why not take these opportunities when they come to you? I'm not killing myself auditioning, chasing that dream.




Peer pressure plays a huge role in people's desire to get married.




I'm fiercely independent, but I'm also terrified of being alone.




I've always felt a little misrepresented in the world.




Yoga takes what you have and molds and sculpts it, which is a much more natural way to look and feel.




Yoga carves you into a different person - and that is satisfying physically.




I don't know if it's possible to live the rock 'n roll lifestyle and still be romantic.




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.




I absolutely loathe the idea of doing a fragrance simply as a moneymaker. Personal brand to make money? Vomit.




Men need to live and breathe women.




My job means I work late.




A lot of my emotional issues come from dealing with the opposite sex. I've come to terms with the fact that I'll be retired before I can finally enter into a healthy relationship.




I do believe that I deserve what I have. I don't think I'm entitled to it. That's a big difference.




Before I go on stage I pretend that everyone loves me.




Furnishing a home is no different than going into the studio and making music. You want to make sure you've pared down all the extra details so that in the end, every stitch has a context uniquely yours.




Playing a show before thousands of people is a highly unnatural state and when I get on the mat to do an hour of yoga before the show, I come out physically relaxed.




I play in a band, I write songs, I sing, you know, perform on stage.




I don't date my girlfriend because she's a model. I date her because I love her.




Stevie Wonder is just one of those guys that completely delivers everything that you want to be true about Stevie Wonder. He's an amazing human being, and the fairytale exists with that man.




I'm extremely fascinated by marriage. 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.




In real life, I am emotionally confused, which enables me to write songs. I'm a Pisces, and they say that Pisces are very sensitive. If men were just honest with themselves, they would see that they all have that side.




I have a very all-over-the-place lifestyle. The people I know who are married - 90 percent of them have houses and live in the same place and sleep in the same bed every night.




'The Voice' is built on positivity. Once we started filming, I knew that America was really going to love it.




I don't think any relationship responds well to pressure.




I never got down with conveying a larger-than-life vibe.
