NEW YORK: American singer and actor, John Legend has been crowned with the title of "sexiest man alive" for the year 2019. People's magazine announced that the 40-year-old singer has won this title but he wonders if he could justify it.
Legend was feeling pressurized while receiving the award. In an interview with People's magazine, he 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!"
Idris Elba, the British actor, won the title in the last year. Other actors and singers Chris Hemsworth, George Clooney, Channing Tatum, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton have won this title in recent years.
John, through his hard work and talent, has been able to make it to the list of some remarkable celebrities. He debuted in the industry with the album "Get Lifted" in 2004 and won an Emmy for the same. He even took home an Oscar for his superhit song "Glory" in the movie 'Selma'.
Proud wifey Chrissy Tiegen was unable to control her excitement and wrote, "My secret is out. I have fulfilled my dream of having boned PEOPLE’s sexiest man alive!! An honor!!!!!." In another tweet, she had a hilarious reply to all the haters who are going to be mad about John winning this title. She wrote, "I cannot WAIT for people to get mad about John being the sexiest man alive. It’s my new Starbucks holiday cup." The model also updated her Twitter bio that says, "currently sleeping with people’s sexiest man alive."
