Levine: flattered by ‘Sexiest’ title

Adam Levine

Adam Levine says his new Sexiest Man Alive title is “flattering and hilarious”.

The Maroon 5 frontman just topped the 2013 annual list from People Magazine, following in the footsteps of George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp.

According to Adam, the honor of his new title is strange and overwhelming.

“It’s bizarre,” Adam told E! News. “It’s funny. It’s awesome, flattering.”

When asked if he felt more handsome after topping the list, Adam had to admit he did. The 34-year-old musician said he felt his good looks have been validated.

“A lot more,” Adam joked. “I felt like today was the first day I’ve ever felt like I was being a little handsome. I’m going to just be getting so much crap from everybody I know, it’s going to be interesting to endure,” he acknowledged.

The singer even revealed his Victoria’s Secret fiancée Behati Prinsloo is already making fun of him. According to Adam, it’s something is he prepared to put up with for a long time.

“Oh yeah, all over the place,” Adam said. “Going to be the butt of every joke for the next six months, to a year to my entire life.”

Despite all the teasing he is receiving, The Voice judge says he wouldn’t mind sporting a tiara if it was “Diamond-encrusted, like something CeeLo would wear”.

Adam brushes off being made fun of because the Sexiest Man Alive award is a huge honor.

“No, it’s flattering,” Adam insisted. “It’s funny, it’s awesome, it’s a huge part [of pop culture]…You know, it’s an iconic thing. It’s amazing… It’s just, it is funny, it is definitely funny. It’s flattering and hilarious.”
