Adam Levine used to write love songs for the women he wanted to seduce.
The 33-year-old Maroon 5 frontman once met ''the most beautiful girl'' at a petrol station - who later became the subject of the band's first album 'Songs About Jane' - and tried to woo her by writing a song and having it played into her workplace.
He said: ''If I really liked a girl and I felt these romantic feelings towards her, I would literally write a song and make sure they heard it. I was so bold.''
But unfortunately the romance was short-lived and a broken-hearted Adam decided to pour his pain into the 2002 album.
He told Paperbag: ''It was a brief relationship but we really did fall in love with each other and when we broke up, my heart was broken.
''I didn't have money or a job. All I had was a girl I was in love with and the dream of being a famous musician. I was like, 'I need to turn this into something good or it's going to be a bad thing'.''
With a new album in the pipeline, as well as a new fragrance and a judging slot on 'The Voice', Adam admits that while he is happy to be working, he doesn't always plan to be so busy.
He said: ''I just hope this isn't the case when I'm 40. I turned 33 and I thought, 'OK, this is exactly where I need to be', and why should I stop until I get to a point where I can, and say, 'f**k this, I'm going to go play golf'.''
