The Maroon 5 frontman has seen his popularity rise thanks to his turn as a judge and mentor on hit TV show The Voice US, alongside Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton.
Adam insists fame hasn't changed him, he says:
"I'm still the same. I'm stubborn, combative, rambunctious, confident. My confidence is often misunderstood for egotistical. It's usually just people who are jealus of self-confidence who say that." Levine told to ET Online.
Maroon 5's latest album Overexposed includes the current hit 'Payphone' featuring Wiz Khalifa. The band has also collaborated with pop princess and fellow The Voice judge Christina on the smash hit 'Moves Like Jagger'.
Adama has revealed where Maroon 5 lie in the music market. "I think that we're finally not self-conscious about being a pop group," he explained.
"We're not a tried-and-true rock band, that's just not what we are. I think that we made like, an unabashed pop record which I think will do wonders for us because it's the first record we've really ever made in which we completely embrace th fact that his is what we do, this is where we want to be and we do it with confidence."
