Adam Levine doesn’t think he is a douchebag he tells GQ.“Would it be really easy to assume that I was a douchebag? Definitely. 100 percent.But that doesn’t mean that I am. Or maybe I am, I don’t know.” Levine explains why he got that ‘oh so lovey title.’

“Men are not as sophisticated as women. They’re not as mature as women. They’re not as connected with their emotions as women. There’s a very Neanderthal quality that still exists in a lot of men. There’s the carnal sh*t you can’t deny. And if you’re in the public eye, to me, it’s very boring to say what you have to say and be media trained to the extent that you don’t ever reveal any truth. There was a time in my life when I lived probably a bit more on the primal level. And it was amazing.”

But the Voice coach blames his earlier years in the business.”All of a sudden, I had money in my bank account. I hadn’t had a break in a long time. And I went a little f**king nuts. And good. I deserved to go a little bit nuts. And I had the time of my life. I was out there having fun, you know. I didn’t give a sh*t, and I got burned for it. People change; people grow up, get more self-aware and in tune with all this sh*t.”

Levine is now engaged to Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo his third consecutive VS model girlfriend in the past few years.

I never thought Adam was douchey…did you?
