Adam Levine Talks About 'Gay Marriage', His Outlook on His Brother's Homosexuality
Maroon 5 frontman talks about his opinion and thoughts on the world's gay perception.
In a recent interview with PrideSource.com, the opened-minded Voice judge explained a thing or two about his stance on legalizing gay marriage — something he says has little to do with have a gay brother, Michael:
"I would feel the same way regardless. I happen to have a gay brother, but that doesn't mean I'm more of an advocate for equal human rights. It's just so silly and it doesn't make any sense to me that you wouldn't be able to marry whomever you want to marry. It's not our business. I don't know why we're obsessed with making everything in this country our business, all the time. We just need to make it legal and stop caring so much. It doesn't matter. And it shouldn't matter. It's just not anyone's business except the people involved."
Adam adds that people' justifications for being against gay marriage just "doesn't check out." He says:
"Whenever I hear people's reasoning behind it, I think to myself: First of all, marriage isn't always successful anyway. Look at the divorce rate and all the things that go wrong with marriage. Whether it's gay or straight, there are issues with it. Clearly people have a hard time staying together, and that's just a sad truth about marriage in our society. People should be allowed to succeed and fail at marriage as they so desire."
