Cue the sound of millions of hearts breaking.
In a new interview with Nylon Guys magazine, The Voice’s Adam Levine shatters many dreams with one particular statement: That he’s never going to wed.
“I’m doing pretty well. If you don’t get married, you can’t get divorced,” says the Maroon 5 frontman, who’s currently dating model Behati Prinsloo. “Why couldn’t we learn that from the devastatingly low percentage of successful marriages that our last generation went through?”
There's a reason Adam might feel so strongly about the idea of marriage. When he was 7-years-old, his parents split and it's something he'll never forget.
"They couldn't accept the fact that I might have been OK with it," he's shared. "I cried my eyes out and kicked and screamed and said, 'Why?' and all the things you do when you find out. A few days later I was fine but I still had to go to therapy. It was such a waste of time." And it's not the first time the hunk has discussed the subject.
"I'm extremely fascinated by marriage," he told Paper magazine in May 2012. "I want to study marriage. I want to learn about it. I want to know it. I want to figure out whether or not I want to do it. I'm not just going to leap into it, because that's not good for anybody."
Though women ‘round the world are probably devastated by his most recent comment, Adam doesn't just harp on the serious stuff.
On reports that new coach Shakira is making twice as much as he is on The Voice, he says, “She’s Shakira dude! She’s a f—ing international superstar! I don’t care. It’s just money.”
He also acknowledges his workload — a new season of the hit NBC series in full swing and Maroon 5 just announced their joint summer tour with Kelly Clarkson — and will never complain about it.
“It’s a lot. But it might not be a lot someday,” he explains. “I don’t like to complain. You have this moment. It doesn’t last forever. You should probably try and enjoy it.”
In this particular moment, we get to stare at Adam on TV twice a week — and we're a-okay with that.
