If you go by his comments, we don’t think Blake Shelton was ready to give up his title of “People’s Sexiest Man Alive” that was bestowed upon him last year. So who’s the new honoree?
Just before yesterday’s announcement, Shelton appeared on Ellen and she reminded him that the closer it got to naming the 2018 winner his sexy was “trickling away.”
“I feel like sexy ends when I’m not Sexiest Man anymore,” Shelton said jokingly to Ellen. “I don’t feel like it exists anymore. I feel like it’s over.” Shelton created quite the turmoil on social media when he got the crown last year, but wishes the next recipient nothing but the best.
So Who is the SEXIEST MAN ALIVE…. <drum roll> Idris Elba has just been crowned People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive.”
“When I found out I was like ‘Come on, no way. Really?’ Elba said in his People cover story. “I looked in the mirror, I checked myself out. I was like ‘Yeah, you are kind of sexy today.’ It was a nice surprise -an ego boost for sure.” The 46 year old Elba becomes People’s 33rd Sexiest Man Alive, and joins the likes of Mel Gibson, Brad Pitt, and last year’s winner Blake Shelton. The actor is a sports enthusiast and deejay in his sparetime, and as far as being the next Bond…still no comment.
Do you like Elba as this year’s choice for Sexiest Man Alive? Do you have another man in mind that should’ve won? Do you believe this title degrades men?
