In his defense, it was shot in the throes of a Los Angeles summer heatwave and if he wanted to show some skin, we weren't going to stop him. In the accompanying story, Levine discusses everything from his penchant for exhibitionism (which is quite obvious), his gay, younger brother and how his whole family knew when he was only two-years-old ("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 use of his song "Hands All Over," in Glee's by Blaine (played by March cover boy Darren Criss), amongst other things.
