Adam Levine Talks About 'Douchebag' Label: 'Maybe I Am, I Don't Know'

In the latest issue of GQ, Adam Levine talks about the "douchebag" label he's so often associated with and his history of almost exclusively dating models.

"Would it be really easy to assume that I was a douchebag? Definitely. One hundred percent. But that doesn't mean that I am. Or maybe I am, I don't know," the 35-year-old tells GQ.

"You know what the gist of this article is? Your opening line can be: 'You don't have to like me, but I'd prefer it if you did. That's kind of how I feel. I'm not the easiest person to love right off the bat, you know."

"If I knew everyone in the world, they would love me. Every single last f---ing one of them."

Asked about being engaged to supermodel Behati Prinsloo (photosBehati Prinsloo photos), the third Victoria's Secret beauty the rocker has dated in five years, Levine says: "Preference should never be looked down upon. Unless it's based on something really shitty. I'm not saying I have a preference, but like, I want to date someone."

"Listen, there are a lot of women in this country, in many countries, who date men for their money. Okay? That's despicable. Right? That's not what we're talking about here," he continued. "Whatever does it for you, man. I don't like feet. You know what I mean? But some people do. Some people have f--king foot fetishes. And it's weird to me. But I don't have to deal with it, because I don't have that. You know?"

"Men are not as sophisticated as women. They're not as mature as women. They're not as connected with their emotions as women," the "Maps" singer explained. "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."

Levine and Prinsloo are set to wed in a ceremony in Mexico on July 19.
