Levin or Levine

I heard that Adam Levine was named People’s sexiest man alive. That’s neither here nor there for me, but it is confusing. Every time I see his name I think people are talking about Adam Levin.

Seriously, when I first saw people quoting Adam Levine, I really thought they were talking about Adam Levin. I had no idea who Adam Levine was, but I did know Adam Levin (author of The Instructions and Hot Pink). I cannot emphasize this enough: I am not joking. It really took me a while to find out that there was a person named Adam Levine, that people weren’t just adding an extra e to Levin, and that Adam Levine was apparently famous for something other than writing novels.

Obviously I don’t listen to much Maroon 5.

I figured things out eventually, but it took a bit.

Regardless, I still automatically think Adam Levin when I see the name Adam Levine. As such, congrats Adam Levin. According to my interpretation of the universe, People just named you sexiest man alive.
