Adam Levine: I was a bimbo
Los Angeles - Adam Levine admits he was a "bimbo" when he was younger.
The Maroon 5 singer and coach on The Voice
was famously promiscuous in the early part of his career, but says he couldn't help himself because he loves women so much.
He told Details magazine
: "I felt like people only knew me as a singer who dated pretty girls. A little bit of a bimbo. Maybe the reason I was promiscuous, and wanted to sleep with a lot of them, is that I love them so much."'I'm so capable of understanding women'
The magazine also declared Adam "the new King of Pop".
Adam - who split from model Victoria's Secret model Anne Vyalitsyna in April - hopes by appearing on The Voice
he has been able to prove he has real talent.
He added: "I was the music dude that was naked all the time with the girls, and that's fine. But I wanted to create a little balance. When The Voice
came around, I thought, 'People now know that I have a brain'."
The 33-year-old Moves Like Jagger
star also said he's never had trouble approaching girls because he was brought up around them.
He added: "One of my theories on why I'm so capable of understanding women is after my parents split, my mom moved in with her brother's ex-wife - my aunt - who was also newly single.
"So I was living in a house with two jilted women, plus my cousin, who's more like my sister, and my brother, Michael, who we eventually find out is gay.
"Just the oestrogen alone. You know when you're 14 and terrified to talk to a girl? I didn't suffer much from that. It seemed very natural to me to talk to girls."
