John Legend Crowned The Sexiest Man Alive
John Legend is a ‘legend’ in many ways. He is one of the few singers who has won the prestigious Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and also a Tony Award for his talent. Now, adding another feather on his cap, the singer has been named the Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine.
The All Of Me singer said in an interview, “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 following Idris Elba, which is not fair and is not nice to me!”
The 40-year-old musician shared the news of his new achievement on Twitter, where he posted his old picture and tagged Idris Elba, still maintaining how he is simply ‘following’ Idris. Idris had been crowned the Sexiest Man in 2016.
He posted: “1995 John would be very perplexed to be following 2018 @IdrisElba as #SexiestManAlive. Hell, 2019 John is about as equally perplexed but thank you @People for finding me sexy. I'll take it."
What followed was a hilarious Twitter exchange, where Idris Elba retweeted John’s post with a sweet message and jested that Dwayne Johnson still believes he has the title.
"My G Congratulations brother! You deserve it. DO NOT TELL @TheRock. He still thinks he’s got the title, I didn’t have the heart to tell him when I took it."
Dwayne too congratulated John and joked about Idris bribing the People magazine to give him the title.
He posted: “Congratulations brother! Welcome to the club. You earned this one. Just like I did. And unlike @idriselba who paid @people 50% of his future earnings for his sexy title. The three of us will raise a tequila glass soon. Congrats again you sexy SOB.”
