People Names Adam Levine “Sexiest Man Alive,” 5 Days After Gossip Cop Scooped It!

Truth rating: 10

By Shari Weiss


As Gossip Cop exclusively reported five days ago, Adam Levine has been named the 2013 “Sexiest Man Alive” by People magazine.


The new issue was revealed on “The Voice” during Tuesday’s results show. “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 tells the magazine. He adds, “I was just amazed and stunned and it almost seemed like they were kidding, but they weren’t, so that’s cool.”

With his career reaching new heights, Levine admits, “This is just a really interesting time where everything seems to be heading in a certain direction. And I’m not taking any of it for granted.”

One big plan still on the agenda? Becoming one of the sexiest husbands alive when he walks down the aisle with fiancee Behati Prinsloo. “I didn’t think marriage was for me for a long time,” says Levine. “I was ready when I was ready. That’s about as simple as it could possibly be.”

Last week, when asked on the “Today Show” about being tapped the “Sexiest Man Alive,” Levine avoided commenting on Gossip Cop’s scoop. The Maroon 5 front man follows in the sexy footsteps of 2012 winner Channing Tatum, 2011’s Bradley Cooper, and 2010’s Ryan Reynolds. Check out video of Levine’s reaction to the unveiling below. What do you think of Levine as the 2013 pick?
