Adam Levine, a coach on the NBC reality talent contest The Voice, has said he would legalize gay marriage if he were president.

The 33-year-old Levine, who is best known as the front man and guitarist for the rock band Maroon 5, was asked during an interview with MTV what law he would pass if he were president for a day.

“First, I'd make gay marriage legal, because that's just archaic and ridiculous,” Levine said. (Watch the segment at MTV.)

Maroon 5 released its fourth studio album, Overexposed, last week.

Last year, Levine urged parents to accept their gay children.

“I can single-handedly dispel any ideas that sexuality is acquired. Trust me, you’re born with it. My brother is gay, and we knew when he was two. We all knew. We all really wanted to provide some cushion for him and constantly let him know that it's OK,” Levine wrote in a cover story gay glossy Out.

“A lot of people don't want their kid to be gay and will fight it at all costs. But I've got news for you – it's a losing fucking battle. The more you fight it, the more fucked-up your kid's gonna be. You've just gotta embrace it from the beginning. That's the only way to deal with it as a family. Otherwise, you're just screwing yourself over, and you're gonna make your kid miserable.”
