Ladies, it’s time to dig up your old Maroon 5 albums.
Adam Levine — our Adam Levine — is officially People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive. And apparently, he was as surprised as you by the news:
“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 singer told People. “I was just amazed and stunned and it almost seemed like they were kidding, but they weren’t, so that’s cool.”
The Maroon 5 frontman and “The Voice” coach also revealed that he keeps his abs of steel with yoga and spinning, and that yes, he cries in movies (especially “E.T.”).
But, don’t start fantasizing about inviting this Jewish hunk to Shabbat dinner — Levine is engaged to Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo.
“I didn’t think marriage was for me for a long time,” the 34-year-old said in the interview. “I was ready when I was ready. That’s about as simple as it could possibly be.”
Now for the real question: Will past winners like Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Channing Tatum throw him a “Honk for Sexy” party?
