The Maroon 5 frontman comments on the title, 'I was just amazed and stunned and it almost seemed like they were kidding.'
Adam Levine has been officially named Sexiest Man Alive by PEOPLE. The Maroon 5 member graces the cover of the magazine, which is due out on Friday, November 22, wearing a simple white t-shirt. He joins the ranks of Channing Tatum, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds and Johnny Depp who previously received the title.
In an interview for the spread, Levine opens up about his reaction after receiving the title. "As a musician, you have fantasies that you want to win Grammys, but I didn't really think that this was on the table. I was just amazed and stunned and it almost seemed like they were kidding, but they weren't, so that's cool," he tells the magazine.
The coach on "The Voice" also reveals that he likes getting naked and mentions that he is looking forward to settling down with his 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," says the 34-year-old singer, who admits that he cries watching "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial".
"This is just a really interesting time where everything seems to be heading in a certain direction. And I'm not taking any of it for granted," Levine says of his successful career, adding that he stays fit thanks to yoga and spinning.
