Being People's Sexiest Man Alive is an honor, yes, but it also comes with some responsibilities!
If you're Adam Levine, at least! On an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres show airing Dec. 5, the 2013 title-holder joked he did feel "an obligation to be sexier in general."
"Actually, I take it very seriously," he said of his sexy man status, before admitting, "No, actually I don't."
"It's kind of funny—it's kind of funny, right? You don't ever think that that's gonna happen to you and then it does and it's really trippy."
The 34-year-old Maroon 5 frontman said that his parents are "taking credit" for producing the Sexiest Man Alive. "They made me," he reasoned.
"My mother asked me very sweetly if that makes her the sexiest mom alive, which is really cute and also kinda weird, and I said, 'I guess so,'" Adam quipped, "and my father just said, 'You're welcome, son.'"
As for his bride-to-be Behati Prinsloo? She "burst into laughter," he admitted, crediting the 24-year-old model for "keeping me humble, as usual."
One thing that works well in the future Mr. and Mrs. Levine's relationship? They're both "super messy," he admitted. "It's really kind of amazing, actually; it looks like a tornado hit wherever we hang out."
Adam and Behati are also afflicted by the same addiction: Candy Crush! So much so, in fact, that after the Voice coach broke his own phone, he used Behati's while she was sleeping in order to continue playing. Only, because her iPhone could only be unlocked by her thumbprint, Adam "gingerly" grabbed her hand in order to swipe her prints so he could access the device. "It happened a few times and finally she had enough," he said.
But he didn't just drop by to chat with Ellen about his sexy man status and relationship quirks: He also had a fragrance to shill! The talk show host couldn't help but bring up Adam's tweet from 2011 in which he wrote he "would like to put an official ban on celebrity fragrances. Punishable by death from this point forward."
Interesting. So what made him change is mind and create both a cologne for men and a fragrance for women? Well, as he admitted to Ellen, "Money is a powerful thing. "
