The musician and NBC's “The Voice” coach's good looks and charisma snag the annual honor
Stop us if you heard this one before: Adam Levine has been named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive.
The honor actually took the Maroon 5 frontman and NBC's “The Voice” coach by surprise. Or, he's showing some uncharacteristic modesty.
“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 34-year-old singer told People of the honor. “I was just amazed and stunned and it almost seemed like they were kidding, but they weren't, so that's cool.”
Levine follows in the footsteps of such notable hunks as John F. Kennedy, Jr., Sean Connery, Tom Cruise and the magazine's inaugural pick, Mel Gibson in 1985.
With his many former relationships becoming splashy celebrity cover stories, Levine lands on People's cover as a taken man. He became engaged to model Behati Prinsloo, 24, in July.
“I didn't think marriage was for me for a long time,” he said. “I was ready when I was ready. That's about as simple as it could possibly be.”
And if there's anything else guys can take away from this year's man at the top? His slim frame is the result of yoga and spinning. Boom!
People and Levine's Sexiest Man Alive issue hits newsstands on Friday.
