Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine has been named People Magazine's 2013 "Sexiest Man Alive," an honor the 34-year-old says left him "amazed and stunned."
"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 told People magazine.
Levine, who has long made health a cornerstone of his lifestyle, recently credited his intense daily yoga routines for keeping him in shape both mentally and physically.
"It's made me more successful," he told Men's Health. "I love it and don't know what I'd do without it.
"I have a hard time sitting still," he added. "I can be all over the map. Yoga has given me the ability to be more focused and make better decisions that come from a clear place."
In general, all of the band members of Maroon 5 are conscious of their diets.
"We’re all extremely health-conscious and everyone is really vegan-friendly," bassist Mickey Madden told VegNews in 2010. "Adam, the singer in the band, in particular will eat, I’d say, about 85-percent vegan for health reasons. All the band members are meat-eaters, but they’re not close-minded and [they] understand the principles of veganism. It makes a big difference. It’s so strange, I obviously have reasons that relate to the world at large for my veganism, but it’s so much a personal choice and a matter of personal preference that I’ve never understood the reaction to it that some people have."
