John Legend Confused About His New 'Sexiest Man Alive' Honor

November 13, 2019

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – the time when People blesses the world with their choice for “Sexiest Man Alive.” This year, the honor goes to John Legend, but Legend himself is a little confused about the selection.

Last year, the sexiest man crown went to Idris Elba, a comparison that Legend finds shocking. The “All of Me” singer took to Twitter to voice his confusion. “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,” he wrote.

Legend’s wife, Chrissy Teigen, has had her own remarks to make about her husband’s newest honor. She began by tweeting a series of heart-eye emojis with People’s announcement on Twitter.

Then, in an attempt to make the news a family affair, Teigen took a shot at getting the kids’ opinions on the matter. Asking Luna and Miles if they were “so happy daddy is the sexiest man alive,” Miles responded with distant cries while Luna requested that her movie be put back on.

Finally, she tweeted once more about the sexiest man alive having just made her a ham sandwich.

She took the jests a step further by updating her Twitter bio to “currently sleeping with people’s sexiest man alive.”

In the past year, Legend has become one of the youngest people to join the EGOT club, earning himself an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony at various times throughout his career. Looks like he has one more high-praise recognition to add to his resume!
