Adam Levine: I'm not a bimboy!

Adam Levine is glad that he got the opportunity to prove himself with The Voice.

Before joining the reality talent competition as a coach, the Maroon 5 frontman admitted some critics assumed he was some "singing bimbo that likes girls", so he's grateful to the show for allowing his personality to shine through.

"It was a nice opportunity to show my personality - that I have a brain," he said.

"It's also true: I am a bimbo and I like to sing and I like girls but there's more to my personality, it's a little more dynamic than that, and I like to show that on the show. It's cool."

The singing competition, which also features Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton as music coaches, was a hit in its first season and the second series will premiere after the Super Bowl on February 5.

The four coaches chose teams of eight after an audition process that allowed them only to hear the contestant's voice, but not to see them.

The Voice helped showcase the playful and sillier side of heavily-inked Adam, and band keyboardist Jesse Carmichael said Adam's presence on the show "was so positive for him definitely as a person, but for us as a band, too."
