Sexiest Man Alive: Adam Levine or Maroon Phil?

CBS Early Show & Fashion Rocks Present Maroon 5 In Concert

In the photo above Adam is obviously fearful that his new title will be rescinded because of the backlash from all of my fans. Although Adam has done many, many interviews, there is one story he has yet to tell.  Our story. No, not you and me. Me and Adam!

Adam and I have quite a history. In my younger days as a musician, Adam, me, and four of our friends would get together to jam after school. After we got a few original songs down we decided that we needed a band name. The others and I wanted to go with the name Maroon Phil.  Adam had other ideas. He wanted Maroon 6. After a while I decided that I didn’t want to spend the next 15 years dealing with Adams primadonna attitude and left the band to make my fame and fortune writing a blog.


You know what’s sexy? A guy that knows what he wants to do with his facial hair. C’mon, seriously Adam. Are you scruffy, are you clean shaven? Make up your mind! Women like decisive men. Based on the picture above, Sexiest Man Alive got up one morning and said to himself, “Yeah, I think the porn ‘stache is the way to go.”


And then another day or maybe year, he decided that he wanted a Charles Manson beard. Adam has no idea what sexy is. Me? I started my goatee in 1999 and I’ve stuck with it.


Lip syncing? I’m not saying he does or doesn’t, you can draw your own conclusions, but The Phil Factor has never been pre-recorded. Let’s look at employment: Me: A full time job with benefits. Adam: The musician gig was going so badly that he had to take a second job on The Voice just to make ends meet. Speaking of The Voice, did you know that Adam asked Cee-Lo Green to be on the show just so he could look taller? And does anyone remember when Adam said, “I hate this country”? Those words have never once crossed my lips.

So I ask you, the true people to speak your mind. Who should be the rightful Sexiest Man Alive for 2013? Adam Levine or The Maroon Phil Factor? Unfortunately, as you can see from the picture below from a few years ago, when given the chance even my own son turned on me. (He’s the one in the lower right)

  1. This. Is. Awesome.

  2. Your new pic is brilliant. I don’t think your son turned on you – he obviously stood with them so as not to hurt Maroon 5’s feelings!

  3. Reblogged this on suzie81's Blog and commented:
    Keeping with what seems to be the theme of the day of polls and questions, a friend of mine needs your help. Phil from The Phil Factor asks the question: ‘Who is sexier?’ Read this post, cast your vote and then follow his blog… (Note: Vote for Phil!)

  4. It has to be Maroon Phil all the way for me…

  5. Maroon Phil for the win!
