The 'Moves Like Jagger' star admits he feels he doesn't need to be self-deprecating in anyway because of his accomplishments.
Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine has confessed that he believes he "deserves" the success which has come to him.
The 'Payphone' singer told USA Today that he fully admits he has a "high self opinion" and does not see why she should hide that fact.
"I have a high self-opinion - I don't need to hide that," he admitted. "I don't need to be self-deprecating.
"I do believe that I deserve what I have. I don't think I'm entitled to it. That's a big difference."
The singer went on to add that he doesn't need to make up stories about himself or even talk about cleaning his own home.
"It's ridiculous. It's too much. Can you just be a millionaire?" he pondered. "My mom told me a long time ago - she didn't know she was giving me this advice - but she said, 'All I know is, you'll never change, so you'd better get somebody to take care of your room and get a housekeeper.'
"That was burned into my skull. 'Must make money so I don't have to do my chores, because I wouldn't do them anyway"
