Levine told Details magazine in their June 2012 issue that he's never been interested in reality television or reality stars due to their motives.
'I've never been interested in reality television,' Levine says. 'I accept the fact that there are Real Housewives out there, but I don't need to watch a f-ing television show about it. These people are living their lives publicly so they can become famous and rich. I despise that. But when you're trying to become a singer, or even losing weight - anything like that I fully endorse. 'The Voice' is built on positivity. Once we started filming, I knew that America was really going to love it.'
