He’s got an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony, and now popular American singer and actor John Legend has been crowned this year’s Sexist Man Alive.
The announcement was made by Blake Shelton who was given the title in 2017, on Tuesday’s episode of “The Voice” where they are both judges.
“It is my duty to formally introduce the next ‘Sexiest Man Alive,’ ” Shelton said. “He just so happens to be here tonight. Ladies and gentlemen, the man, the myth, the Legend: 2019’s Sexiest Man Alive.”
Speaking about his newest accolade, the “All of Me” singer said: “I was excited, but I was a little scared at the same time because it’s a lot of pressure, 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 Legend also took to micro blogging platform Twitter to poke fun at last year winner, actor Idris Elba.
“1995 John would be very perplexed to be following 2018 @IdrisElba as #sexiestman alive,” he said on Twitter. “Hell, 2019 John is about as equally perplexed but thank you @People for finding me sexy. I’ll take it.”
People is an American weekly Magazine of celebrity and human-interest stories, published by Meredith Corporation. It is perhaps best known for its yearly special issues naming the “World’s Most Beautiful”, “Best & Worst Dressed”, and “Sexiest Man Alive”.
The first People’s Sexiest Man Alive was Mel Gibson who was just 29 when he was named in February 1985.
Four men have received the honor twice: Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, George Clooney and Richard Gere. Only four people who aren’t actors have ever won the title: Kennedy, Adam Levine, David Beckham and Blake Shelton.
