Adam Levine & Gay Marriage...

Now that I have gotten over the pain of being passed over yet again, I am totally cool with the fact that last week People magazine chose Adam Levine as this year's Sexiest Man Alive! (...exclamation point apparently part of the title…).

Despite rumours that Ryan Gosling turned the gig down (saw it on twitter, so must be true), Levine is a good choice… hot, charming, front man for popular band Maroon 5, coach on TV mega hit The Voice.

Levine is doing so well right now, we can all overlook the cheesy fragrance, that he is a "modelizer" (dates only models), and maybe even the men's clothing line at K-Mart.

Mr Sexiest Man Alive is fun and honest on social media, and recently become engaged to, yes, a model.

Levine is also an advocate of gay rights, a big supporter of his out gay brother Michael Levine, and a supporter of marriage equality. Here is a quote of his from last year, when he said that if he became president (uh, he won't), his first act would be to legalize gay marriage:

It’s just so silly and it doesn’t make any sense to me that you wouldn’t be able to marry whomever you want to marry. It’s not our business. I don’t know why we’re obsessed with making everything in this country our business, all the time. It seems we’re a little behind on that, and we just need to make it legal and stop caring so much. It doesn’t matter. And it shouldn’t matter…Anyone who doesn’t agree with it is essentially putting themselves above other people. That’s what they’re doing. And that’s not OK with me…I don’t think that having a gay brother has affected the way I feel about it, because I would feel the same way regardless. I happen to have a gay brother, but that doesn’t mean I’m more of an advocate for equal human rights. That shouldn’t change anything about the way that I feel.”

As for that Sexiest Man Alive gig, sure I think it's a good choice, but others disagree with the pick, and maybe Jimmy Kimmel did provide some truth in terms of context
