Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine wants to end the persistent rumors that his good friend Jake Gyllenhaal is gay.
Levine chatted with Out magazine, which asked him about his friendship with with the Brokeback Mountain star.
"Will everyone stop thinking that dude is gay?" said Levine. "Seriously guys. How immature is it of the media to perceive this guy -- it has to be because of Brokeback, right? I've known this dude forever. He's one of my oldest friends, and it's very weird that they have this -- it's very immature and infantile the way they treat his whole situation. If him hanging out with his bros means he's gay, it's like further perpetuating that weird homophobia that exists in our culture, which is just stupid. So, yeah, he's my buddy. I fuckin' love the guy."
