Adam Levine admits he can be a ''huge pain in the ass''.

The Maroon 5 front man, who is also currently starring as a mentor on the US version of 'The Voice', believes he can be hard to handle at times.

He said: ''I can be a huge pain in the ass, huge pain in the ass. That's part of who I am and there's not a person I know who doesn't think I'm a pain in the ass.''

But he insists it isn't all bad news when it comes to being his friend. He added: ''I'm also really nice and a completely affable and socially adept person. There's a difference between being an asshole and a pain in the ass.''

Having recently split with Victoria's Secret model Anne Vyalitsyna after two years of dating, the 'Moves Like Jagger' hitmaker says he wants to learn everything he can about marriage before deciding if it is the right path for him.

He told Papermag: ''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.''
