Celebrities are no strangers to saying dumb things, and Adam Levine has made more than a few eyebrow-raising comments in his time. However, the musician-turned-actor-turned-fashion icon-turned-reality TV celebrity has said some genuinely interesting things as well. Here is a look at five of his most profound quotes.
“I'm intelligent enough to survive happily and be compassionate. If I were too smart, I would realize all the ills of the world.”
Most people prefer to think of themselves as the smartest person in the room. However, Levine realizes the pitfalls of being too smart for his own good and is perfectly content to be just the right amount of intelligent.
“In real life, I am emotionally confused, which enables me to write songs. If men were just honest with themselves, they would see that they all have that side.”
Some men may have problems admitting that they have emotions, but not Adam Levine. In fact, he sees his emotional vulnerability as one of the things that allows him to be a good musician.
“I don’t know if it’s possible to live the rock and roll lifestyle and still be romantic.”
Judging by his never-ending stream of girlfriends, you wouldn’t think that Adam Levine has a lot of useful advice when it comes to love. However, he still manages to touch on an important point about the stress that being a musician can place on a romantic relationship.
“I have a high self-opinion—I don’t need to hide that. I don’t need to be self-deprecating.”
Is Adam Levine arrogant? Probably. However, he’s a man who’s self aware and isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. Straight shooters aren’t always the most pleasant people to be around, but most people do appreciate their aversion to BS.
“I don’t date my girlfriend because she’s a model. I date her because I love her.”
Adam Levine has a reputation for being a womanizer, but this quote just goes to show you can’t trust everything you hear. While it probably doesn’t hurt that most models are stunningly gorgeous, Levine stresses the point that he’s in it for love and not for looks.
