And People’s Sexiest Man Alive is… John Legend!
John told the magazine he’s excited but “a little scared” because of the pressure that comes with the title. He added, quote, “Everyone’s going to be picking me apart to see if I’m sexy enough to hold this title. I’m [also] following Idris Elba, which is not fair and is not nice to me!”
John’s wife Chrissy Teigen was a little less humble about it. I love her hilarious NSFW Tweet!
She added, quote, “I cannot WAIT for people to get mad about John being the sexiest man alive. It’s my new Starbucks holiday cup.” She also changed her Twitter bio to read “de-motivational speaker currently sleeping with people’s sexiest man alive.” So funny!
Last night on The Voice, Blake Shelton (the 2017 Sexiest Man Alive winner) presented John with a pair of denim booty shorts with the word VEGOTSMA on the butt. The “V” is from John winning The Voice,” the “EGOT” is from him having won an Emmy, Grammy, Tony, and Oscar and the “SMA” is for Sexiest Man Alive.
