During an appearance on Anderson (airing next Monday), the Maroon 5 frontman talks about his hit NBC show The Voice, which leads Anderson Cooper to inquire about what often appears to be a somewhat tense-filled relationship between Levine and his fellow judge.
"It's fine," insists Levine. "Everyone's so funny. They take one little thing. We bicker, like brother and sister kind of thing, but it's all in good fun. No one's carrying it with them anywhere other than the stage."
Speaking of the stage, when an audience member asks Levine if he could add another artist to, say, be a fifth coach on The Voice, Levine reveals he "would love to see" someone like Kanye West come on board.
"Just because he's such a firecracker," he says. "I'm sure that terrifies NBC, but that would be fun. I love Kanye, I love what he does."
Not surprisingly, the conversation soon turns to the tragic passing of Whitney Houston.
"I kind of try to think about it though in a positive light and think about celebrating what she did and celebrating her because we all love her so much," says Levine. "I'm not sure there's anybody on Earth with a voice like that. We miss her."
