Adam Levine shows off his radically blonde hair: budget Billy Idol or sexy?

levine blond

I don’t like to admit it, but Adam Levine usually falls under the parameters of what I consider “hot”. I like dark-haired men and I tend to go more for the slender types rather than the beefy men. I don’t mind tattoos or facial hair. So… am I attracted to Adam Levine? No. He’s just too douchey. And now I don’t even have to feel conflicted about it, because Adam has dyed his hair a gross peroxide blonde shade.

Adam posted the header photo on his Twitter over the weekend with the message, “Apocalypse prep course complete.” When the Apocalypse comes, we’re all going to be blondes? That’s his fiancée Behati Prinsloo beside him too. I was wondering what the hell he was doing with this kind of dramatic (and fug) hair change, but I read a theory that maybe it’s just a temporary thing, perhaps for the Met Gala. I wouldn’t think Adam Levine would be into the Met Gala stuff, but considering he’s A) engaged to a model, B) family-friendly and “corporate” these days and C) in change of his own line of budget groupie-wear, maybe he will be in attendance at the Met Gala.

I feel like Levine was aiming for Billy Idol, but the look is more reminiscent of Anne Hathaway at last year’s Met Gala.

    He looks awful. He’s too dark and hirsute to get away with this look. And you have to be pretty young to dye your hair this blond or it washes you out.

    • Lisa says:

      Pfffft, I still totally would!!! He’s frikken hot. And I don’t find him douchey at all!!!

    • Suzanneg444 says:

      What is with the girlfriend who stands a head taller than him? My number one rule in dating…is the man HAS to be several inches taller than me…enough to allow me to wear heels…or I don’t even consider the date. Shallow? Perhaps…call me whatever…I’m not looking down at my date.

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        I’m so glad I didn’t feel like that. My husband and I are the same height and we’ve been together 25 years. I would have passed up the most incredible person I have ever met if I had crossed him off because of his height.

        You might be shorting yourself by feeling like that. ;)

      • jjva says:

        I’m a good 3″ taller than my husband, and I’ve been taller than almost all the men I’ve dated. Like TOTiffany, I’m glad I didn’t pass up an awesome human being because of height. But I realize statistics aren’t on my side: I’m six feet tall, so there aren’t a ton of people taller than me, male or female. If you’re 5’2″ or something it might be different!

      • Amy says:

        Some people are big enough to see past height. My boyfriend is at least two inches shorter than me, and I’m only 5’7″. But it’s love.

        …and some people only date supermodels.

      • Catfrogturtle says:

        Same, my ex boyfriend was 6′ tall, the current one is the same height as me, but he is the most amazing person I’ve met, he actually turned me into shorter guys!
        Ah! James McAvoy!! Anytime!!

  2. His face just screams DOUCHE to me. I don’t think he can help it….but he is not attractive to me at all.

  3. Dani2 says:

    Budget Billy Idol. Budget everything. It’s just not a good look.

  4. blue marie says:

    Hey little sister what have you done..
    Not even in the same category as Idol.

  5. K-rock says:

    Gross! No. Just no. And the whole “sexiest man alive” thing just boggles my mind. I can’t.

  6. Kiddo says:

    He somehow managed to make his head look HUGE in that photo. Although it doesn’t reflect his actual physicalities, it sure is symbolic.

    He just doesn’t have sex appeal for me. He can change his hair and tat up and yet he still remains average or vanilla. He wants to be a bad boy sex symbol, but he still resonates as metrosexual-overly-consumed-with-the-mirror-guy. There is no masculine raw sexual energy. He’s boring.

  7. Emily C. says:

    This is probably the most decent thing he’s ever done. As certain insects have bright markings to warn predators they are dangerous to eat, so too does Adam Levine bleach his hair to warn people of what a complete douche he is on sight.

  8. QQ says:

    United with the Celebitches in this Shudder of Gross Behind this douche… im so happy we are not buying whatever this twerp is selling

  9. PunkyMomma says:

    I just can’t with this douche. Just can’t. He’s ruined Songs About Jane for me.

  10. lucy2 says:

    It’s a nice day for a…douchey selfie.

  11. Hannah says:

    How gorgeous is Behati in that selfie though?

  12. Lilacflowers says:

    The hair is bad. The shirt is hilariously bad.

  13. Beatrice says:

    I love the t-shirt with the kitty-cats on it.

  14. LadyRay says:

    I didn’t think it was possible for him to up the douche meter but he proved me wrong.

  15. Sighs says:

    I like his voice. But the douchiness kills it for me. And the super modeling.

  16. Adrien says:

    Bah! You won’t even notice Behati was beside him. That is how distracting his hair is. If Marko Jaric is Roddy McDowall, Adam is Anthony Perkins. Except that Anthony Perkins had huge charisma even without him trying. Even after his body was ravaged by AIDS.

  17. Lis says:

    Please don’t compare him to Billy Idol who was actually very sexy. Levine seems like a douche who is in love with himself.

  18. paola says:

    He went from douchey to plain creepy.

  19. eliza says:

    This guy is a straight up, try too hard, attention whoring tool. He and Kelly Osbourne would make an ideal couple. Both hugely repulsive.

  20. poppy says:

    i’m seriously surprised he isn’t making a duck face.
    so much douche cheese.

  21. Dawn says:

    So I am not liking the blond hair but they make a cute couple in that top selfie.

  22. Quinn says:

    Bless his heart, he’s just a walking bag of insecurities.

  23. Jenna says:

    Gods help me…

    I think the blond makes him look sexy.

    And man do I need a shower and a stern talking to after typing the above. But it’s weird, my normal go-to ‘thing’ is dark and usually craggily mountainous. (What can I say, if I occasionally want to be swept off my rather amazonian self’s feet… it needs a guy with serious game to manage.) The Aragorn’s never the Legolas’es. But… but… sometimes Billy Idols and Spikes from Buffy (and wow, many nerdy points can I use in this?) get by and I’m weirdly and uncomfortably finding myself digging it. Maybe if I just keep chanting “but it’s ADAM ~LEVINE~” I can reroot myself in my distaste of the twerp?

    Nope. Not working. Still looks sexy as hell and nummy.

    Help me?

  24. trudibell says:

    When the question is “Is Adam Levine sexy?” the answer is always no.

  25. Miss M says:

    Douche, douche, douche, douche, douche, douche, douche, douche, douche, douche,douche…

    *douchmeter broke*

  26. Abby_J says:

    Confession…..I dislike Adam Levine and Maroon 5.

    I dislike both so much that even when he looks attractive, he looks terrible to me. The blonde just makes it easier to think he is gross. :)

  27. Tay says:

    I doubt he’s going to the Met Gala, The Voice airs on Mondays.

  28. Ginger says:

    Technically he’s what I would find attractive too but I can’t stand his personality so NO!!!! I don’t like the blonde hair at all.

  29. Kat says:

    Ummm, that comparison would only work if Adam Summer’s Eve Lavigne were at least 1/10th at sexy as Billy Idol. I’ll cast my vote for “budget”, thanks.

  30. PixieWitch says:

    Look! Its Miley Cyrus with a five o’clock shadow.

  31. Melanie says:

    Now he’s just a blonde manwhore douche.

  32. RK says:

    He does remind of Anne Hathaway too…

  33. joan says:

    I think he adds some charm and self-deprecating humor to The Voice, so I don’t get douchey.

    Blake Shelton is the one who isn’t wearing well and kinda douchey.

  34. Whitney says:

    Aw, come on, don’t insult Billy Idol like that. He at least looked hot with the peroxide hair.

  35. Camille (The Original) says:

    So incredibly fug.

  36. Damaris says:

    Adam is not attractive. Black of blond. I don’t get the allure of this man-boy.

  37. Nina W says:

    Only the mother of dragons can pull this blond off.

  38. beth says:

    I will never understand how in hell people consider Adam Hot…he looks like a bleached banana with this hair..its horrible

  39. Matthew says:

    If I had his money it wouldn’t matter how tall
    I am, anyway if he stood on his wallet he would be taller than her. God who cares anyway? Why hate on the dude?

  40. detritus says:

    I was very concerned that with Billy Idol hair I would find him attractive. Billy Idol hair is my weakness, but his skeeze is just too strong. He still looks like a ferret,
