Adam Levine, the judge of the reality singing show The Voice and frontman for the band Maroon 5 was voted "Sexiest Man Alive" by People Magazine last week. He's dating a supermodel, is covered in tattoos and is a huge rock star. A guy called "sexiest man" couldn't possibly be geeky or nerdy right? Wrong. Here are some geeky things to love about Adam Levine

1. Adam Levine Has a Collection of Superhero Underwear
In 2010 Adam Levine said he had extensive collection of "superhero underwear." He even showed his Superman underwear on stage.

His fiancee, Victoria Secrets model Behati Prinsloo, says she doesn't know why he doesn't wear them anymore, but he still has them. "Well, he had an amazing collection of superhero underwear that I really love, but he doesn’t like to wear it anymore. Not Wonder Woman, but there is a Superman. Actually, I took over the whole collection. Now I wear it to go to bed.” Levine said he's "okay with that."

2. E.T. Makes Adam Levine Cry

Adam Levine says his favorite movie is E.T. the Extraterrestrial. Levine also admits he cries at movies and especially E.T.. What self-respecting geek doesn't?

I didn't even know who he was. I was getting him confused with that Adam Lambert guy from American Idol. Maroon 5 sucks. I went to one of their concerts with the Counting Crows but since the Crows went first we just left after they performed. Made getting out of the parking lot easier.

Can't comment on the sexy part. He was cool until he dissed Star Trek.
And hairless cats are so freaky...

I've always been a fan of Levine's. I will leave determinations of his sexiness to others, however.

Al Diaz said...

the sexiest man alive...hmm, not sure about that. I agree with Alex, though, hairless cats are freaky.

MPax said...

He's not my pick. But OK. Guess he's somewhat geeky. Not sure he's geeky enough. :)
