LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Christina Aguilera made headlines last week after admitting on “Chelsea Lately” that she doesn’t like to wear underwear, but her fellow “The Voice” coach – Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine — is taking a different stand.
“It’s so funny ‘cause I love to wear underwear,” he told AccessHollywood.com’s Laura Saltman as he promoted Maroon 5’s the Citi AAdvantage Love the Journey Concert Series, along with bandmate James Valentine.
“I’m not kidding,” the “Payphone” singer continued. “It keeps everything in check, you know? Like, I think it’s nice to know everything is set. [With] no underwear… I don’t know what could happen. I don’t want things flopping around. I don’t know if that’s the same for women, it’s a little simpler down there for you guys.
“I just need a buffer zone between my junk and the outside world,” he added.
Adam is likely to miss Christina’s outrageous remarks when she takes a season off from “The Voice” next year to promote and tour her new album, “Lotus,” but Adam is already getting plenty of Xtina time in. He’s also getting used to new coaches Usher and Shakira, who are filling Christina and CeeLo Green’s seats during their break from the NBC show.
“The good news is, we’re shooting two seasons at once, so I see them all, all the time,” he laughed.
As for Adam, aside from his upcoming Maroon 5 North American tour, which kicks off on February 14, 2013, he isn’t going anywhere.
“No, ‘cause then there’s a chance that someone could replace me and be better than me and then, I’d be fired,” he said. “I’m not going anywhere!”
Although Christina and CeeLo’s chairs are supposed to be there whenever they are ready to return, Adam still isn’t willing to take the chance, himself.
“Who knows what’s going to happen. They’re always welcome back. But that’s what THEY say,” he said, referring to the show’s bosses.
