Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine warns
parents that resisting a child's sexual orientation only makes a kid
Levine took his celebrity to a new
level this spring when he joined Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and
Christina Aguilera as a judge/coach on NBC's singing contest The
a cover story for gay glossy Out,
Levine, 32, verbally takes a swipe at parents who refuse to accept
their children's sexuality.
“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 said.
“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,” he added.
