Adam Levine of Maroon 5 has some choice words for female metal fans

As someone who makes, for all practical purpose, pop music with a hint of rock, Adam Levine is not really the kind of guy you would expect to be in touch with the heavy metal scene. But, regardless, Levine reportedly believes that “no hot chicks” listen to metal music.

The Maroon 5 vocalist has been in the news this week after Instagram model Sumner Stroh released private messages between the two of them, implying they had an affair. According to the messages, Levine even reportedly asked for her permission to name his unborn child Sumner. Following Stroh being vocal about her relationship with Levine, several other women did the same thing, sharing screenshots and screen recordings of their online encounters with the singer.

During an Instagram message with Alyson Rosef, Levine apparently commented about metal music. Rosef said during the conversation, “I’m so weird too and only listen to metal lol,” and Levine reportedly replied, “Said no hot chicks ever other than you.” On behalf of myself and all the lovely ladies to love metal out there, we object, Adam.

Levine took to Instagram on Sept. 20 to address the cheating rumors. He claims that while he flirted and interacted with these women online, he did not have an affair, stating in an Instagram story, “I used poor judgment in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner. I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period of my life. In certain instances it became inappropriate. I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family. My wife and my family is all I care about in this world. To be this naive and stupid enough to risk the only thing that truly matters to me was the greatest mistake I could ever make. I will never make it again. I take full responsibility. We will get through it and we will get through it together.”

This isn’t Levine’s first controversial comment about heavy music. In 2021, he stated that there are “no bands anymore, and I feel like they’re a dying breed.”
