It has been revealed that John Legend has been named People magazine’s “Sexist Man Alive” on Tuesday (Nov. 12) and the singer admitd he’s surprised by the honor. Howrver Legend thanked the mag for noticing his sex appeal, especially after Idris Elba won the title last year.
Legend went to Twitter and tweeted a split photo of himself back in 1995 next to a current pic of Elba with a caption that his younger self would be “perplexed” by the “Sexiest Man Alive” title. “Hell, 2019 John is about as equally perplexed,” he adds. “But thank you @People for finding me sexy. I’ll take it.”
His wife Chrissy Teigen also took shots at her husband’s new title and changed her Twitter bio to “currently sleeping with people’s sexiest man alive.” and adding the sexiest man alive just made her a ham sandwich!
Legend tells People mag he was “excited but scared” to add his People’s Sexist Man Alive to the list of his accomplishments.
“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!”
He credits his parents for teaching him humility and kindness, as he beamed about his family.
“I’m so proud that I have a wife and two kids I’m so in love with and so connected to. I’m also so proud of my career. I love writing songs and performing on stage. I get a lot of joy from it and give a lot of joy to other people. I’m pretty at ease with myself now!”
How many feel People mag got this right or do you demand a recount??!
What’s your 2 cents?!
