Adam Levine: I’d take first date to McDonald’s

Adam Levine

Adam Levine jokes he would rather take a girl to a fast food joint than a fancy restaurant on a first date because it’s “cost-effective.”

The Maroon 5 singer has been linked romantically to a number of high-profile celebrities in the past including Jessica Simpson, Cameron Diaz and model Anne V.

Adam is currently dating Victoria’s Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo.

Apparently Behati may have gotten wooed initially by a cheap meal at a fast food joint.

When asked what he would don on a first date, Adam revealed that his clothes would be reflective of the nature of the affair.

"Well, it depends on what you’re doing. I always like to dress up in a tuxedo and tell the girl to dress real fancy. I like to pick her up and go to McDonald’s in a tuxedo,” he told fashion website Refinery29.

"It’s my move. You don’t have to shell out a bunch of money on the first date."

Adam jokes that being miserly allows for him to see whether or not the girl is special.

"It’s a good, spontaneous, romantic thing you can do that’s also cost-effective. What if you don’t like the person? It’s only the first date,” he explained.

“It’s the first time you’re hanging out — do something quirky and romantic. You don’t want to show it all off on the first date, you know? Dress fancy, but go to McDonald’s. Her world will be so rocked. You might be able to take her to the opera afterwards. If you don’t like her, you can just take her home.

"If it was a nice date and you had a good time eating your French fries and Big Mac in your tux, yeah! It’s all funny. If you don’t like the person that much and you can tell it’s not going well, then you just drop ‘em off and they'll think it was really sweet, really cool. If you like them, you take them to the opera. I’ve never been to the opera by the way. I don't know what I'm talking about."
