Adam Levine is People's Sexiest Man Alive
People Magazine has anointed the Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice judge as 2013's Sexiest Man Alive. "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 People. "I was just amazed and stunned and it almost seemed like they were kidding, but they weren't, so that’s cool." The L.A.-raised Levine also reveals that he cries at movies (E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial always gets him), loves to be naked, and is looking forward to settling down with his fiancée, Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo.
