I'm intelligent enough to survive happily and be compassionate. If I were too smart, I would realize all the ills of the world.
I don't want to be an actor, but why not take these opportunities when they come to you? I'm not killing myself auditioning, chasing that dream.
I love music videos, I really do. I think it's kind of sad that it's a dying art form.
Yoga carves you into a different person – and that is satisfying physically.
There are many things that keep me from getting married. But there will be a time when marriage makes sense to me.
So many people witness atrocities and can't take their eyes away from them, but that doesn't mean they're good.
As a pop star, you don't have to be that smart for people to think you're intelligent.
Playing a show before thousands of people is a highly unnatural state and when I get on the mat to do an hour of yoga before the show, I come out physically relaxed.
The only reason I became the singer in the band is because I sang the best. It wasn't out of some desire to be a star or be a famous singer. It's not like I love interviews.
In real life, I am emotionally confused, which enables me to write songs. I'm a Pisces, and they say that Pisces are very sensitive. If men were just honest with themselves, they would see that they all have that side.
'The Voice' was the first real job I've ever had that wasn't just messing around with music.
People see you on TV every day, they start knowing your name. You know, I was always just the guy from Maroon 5 until I became myself.
I was a huge Beatles fan. The Stones, Dylan. Later on, I got into Stevie Wonder, and Bill Withers – he's one of my heroes. Al Green, too.
At any Maroon 5 concert, you'll see a room backstage marked 'yoga.'
I do believe that I deserve what I have. I don't think I'm entitled to it. That's a big difference.
The best thing about Mick Jagger is how uncalculating he is. He does what he wants to do and it feels right. He's not a dancer – neither am I.
I hate flying. Know why? Because no one really understands how planes actually work.
I don't know if it's possible to live the rock 'n roll lifestyle and still be romantic.
You know when you're 14 and terrified to talk to a girl? I didn't suffer much from that. It seemed very natural to me to talk to girls.
I'm extremely fascinated by marriage. I want to study marriage. I want to learn about it. I want to know it. I want to figure out whether or not I want to do it. I'm not just going to leap into it, because that's not good for anybody.
Not every song has to be about love and tenderness, sometimes you have those strictly physical feelings for somebody and it's okay to have those feelings.
A lot of my emotional issues come from dealing with the opposite sex. I've come to terms with the fact that I'll be retired before I can finally enter into a healthy relationship.
Let's face it, I only practice yoga because the classes are always packed with beautiful women.
'The Voice' is built on positivity. Once we started filming, I knew that America was really going to love it.
I have a high self-opinion – I don't need to hide that. I don't need to be self-deprecating.
I absolutely loathe the idea of doing a fragrance simply as a moneymaker. Personal brand to make money? Vomit.
Seriously, 'Honey Boo Boo' is the decay of Western civilization. Just because so many people watch the show doesn't mean it's good.
Yoga takes what you have and molds and sculpts it, which is a much more natural way to look and feel.
Furnishing a home is no different than going into the studio and making music. You want to make sure you've pared down all the extra details so that in the end, every stitch has a context uniquely yours.
I don't date my girlfriend because she's a model. I date her because I love her.
Stevie Wonder is just one of those guys that completely delivers everything that you want to be true about Stevie Wonder. He's an amazing human being, and the fairytale exists with that man.
I have a very all-over-the-place lifestyle. The people I know who are married – 90 percent of them have houses and live in the same place and sleep in the same bed every night.
