The 'Moves Like Jagger' singer admits people who are jealous label him incorrectly as and laughs off arrogance claims.
Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine has confessed that people often mistake his confidence as being "egotistical" and admitted it usually stems from others' jealousy.
The 'Payphone' singer told ET Online that he has not changed during his time on The Voice and still considers himself to be "stubborn" and "combative".
"[I'm] the same. [I'm] stubborn, combative, rambunctious? confident," he admitted. "[My confidence] is often misunderstood for egotistical. It's usually just people who are jealous of self-confidence who say that."
The singer also added that he holds a different view on how people look upon the band these days and their music has benefited because of it.
"I think that we're finally not self-conscious about being a pop group," he explained.
"We're not a tried and true rock band, that's just not what we are? I think that we made like, an unabashed pop record [with 'Overexposed'] which I think will do wonders for us because it's the first record we've really ever made in which we completely embrace the fact that this is what we do, this is where we want to be and we do it with confidence," Adam continued.
Meanwhile, the band recently unveiled the action packed music video to their latest single 'Payphone'.
