Adam Levine has a new interview with the November 19th issue of TV Guide in which he talks about his gig on the Voice, whether he would ever go solo, and what he thinks of replacements judges Usher and Shakira.
When talking about what it’s like working with Usher and Shakira, Levine says, “Christina and CeeLo are so close to my heart because we went through the show becoming a success together, and Usher and Shakira are coming into it as a big frickin; institution. So it's different, but it still feels good, because they're legitimate artists.”
He is also asked about what he thinks about being a ‘reality TV star’, to which he replies, “I'm not a reality-TV star. The Voice isn't a show about me going shipping or complaining about stupid fucking mundane shit that no one should ever complain about. "Poor rich me and my caviar problems." That drives me crazy. I hate it! There's a purpose to this show.”
Finally, he talks about the chances of doing a solo album, saying, “I don't have any desire [to do a solo album]. I put too much time, love and care into Maroon 5, and I don't think it would be very cool to abandon my comrades. Also, I've got enough of my own thing going on with the show, it makes going back to the band that much more special.”
