IT'S ALL RELATIVE

The 41-year-old was named PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive in 2013, a title that didn't cross his mind until then, as he dreamt of winning a Grammy one day as a musician.

Nonetheless, the title left him "amazed and stunned," but when asked by one of his fans how it felt during his recent Q&A session, he called it "totally silly but flattering."

Soon questions turned to Levine's thoughts on another former Sexiest Man Alive, Blake Shelton, with whom he served as a coach on "The Voice."

Shelton even poked fun at himself after earning the title, currently held by the actor Michael B. Jordan. Speaking to PEOPLE at the time, the 44-year-old country singer said:

"Y'all must be running out of people. Like, Wow, we're down to somebody who is somewhat symmetrical."

Levine's response came after Shelton spoke about his upcoming wedding to Gwen Stefani earlier this month. Divulging a few details, Shelton shared that Levine has no choice but to perform at their wedding.

The reason Shelton insists on Maroon 5 being his wedding band is a simple one. He reckons their music is "so boring" that no one will get distracted from all the festivities set to take place at the reception.
