We all know that there are some pretty good-looking people in the country music world. But, according to People, none of them look as great at Blake Shelton. In fact, the publication loves Shelton so much that they named him the “Sexiest Man Alive” this year.
But, while People seemed pretty proud of their decision, the title angered a lot of people around the world. In fact, Shelton himself seemed pretty confused about the whole ordeal, even though he did accept the award.
He apparently told the publication, “Y’all must be running out of people. Like, wow, we’re down to somebody who is somewhat symmetrical.”
But, Shelton was excited about one thing, and that was rubbing the title in his good friend and “The Voice” co-star Adam Levine. He wound up having a lot of fun revealing the news to Levine, in fact. Shelton took Levine on a ride around “The Voice” set blindfolded to show him a huge billboard in Shelton’s honor.
The billboard featured the image of him on the magazine cover with the title “Sexiest Man Alive” in huge print. Levine didn’t seem too impressed, however. Levine has also been given the same title in years past. You can watch the funny video above.
Since People made the announcement, Twitter has had a field day about it. Tons of fans have chimed in their thoughts about Shelton and his looks, and most aren’t too pleasant. But, Shelton is in good spirits about all the negativity and even jokes about the honor. Take a look at this to see some of the funniest tweets.
Of course, it seems like just about every year People chooses someone to be the Sexiest Person Alive and a lot of people don’t agree with the magazine. But, it gets the public talking about the publication and the people they choose. So, they probably aren’t going to change their strategy anytime soon.
