Speaking to Billboard from the road, for the publication's new cover story, Ryan says, "I don't get hounded, I don't get chased, I don't usually travel with security, and I still feel relatively like a normal person.…

As Battle Rounds Begin, Adam Levine Defends "The Voice": "I Think It's a Win for Everybody"

The Battle Rounds begin tonight on NBC's The Voice, but six seasons in, coach Adam Levine is still defending the hit show from accusations that it's flawed because it's failed to produce any chart-topping stars.  According to Adam, selling as many albums as some American Idol winner isn't the only way contestants on The Voice should define success. "People say, 'Oh, you have to be as big as so-and-so to be considered successful.'  That's not true," insists Adam.
