“When I Can't Pay Attention, I Really Can't Pay Attention”: Singer Adam Levine Opens Up About his Struggle with ADHD
Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine has opened up about living with adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
"I like to always make sure that whatever I’m promoting or talking about or discussing at length, is something that I have personal, hands on experience with," Levine told Us Weekly.
"And this is no different than anything else. This is an issue that’s very near and dear to my heart" he added.
The chart-topping musician is taking part in a special PSA, utilising his celebrity status to help other adults who struggle with the condition while raising awareness at the same time.
"When I was first diagnosed with ADHD, it wasn't a surprise because I had difficulty in high school focusing," he admitted.
"And I think now, people notice my ADHD as an adult on a daily basis. When I can't pay attention, I really can't pay attention.
"If somebody approached me and said that anything that I said, helped them figure it out - or someone came to me and said I need help what do you suggest I do – the first thing I would suggest they do is see somebody," he says.
"See a doctor about it."
The singer's "Own It" PSA goes live in a few days on February 24th.
