PEOPLE ‘Sexiest Man Of The Year’ Announced, And It’s A Good One
We’re going to be honest, after last year’s debacle, we were a bit nervous to see who PEOPLE Magazine crowned as this year’s Sexist Man Alive. Now, this is not to knock Blake Shelton. He’s fine! In a tepid tea, saltine cracker, fat-free mayo kind of way. Totally fine. But sexiest man alive? Nah, son. On no planet. So upset were we last year, that we even came up with 32 other men who were sexier than Blake, just to prove a point. Our very scientific, very thorough research yielded some amazing results. And judging by PEOPLE’s pick for this year, someone at the magazine was reading! Or just, you know, smart, because the choice is obvious.
This year, PEOPLE Magazine has crowned Idris Elba as the Sexist Man Alive, and honestly, this can be the very last issue of this particular series because no one can top him. No one. The face, the body, the accent – he’s the whole package. We love us some Idris, and we are thrilled to be able to stare at his pictures. We may even read the article, who knows.
Idris Elba is EVERY year’s Sexiest Man Alive, but we’ll bestow the official honor in 2018.
WHY YES, IT IS A GOOD MORNING, PEOPLE MAGAZINE. We’ve been big fans of Idris since his he played Stringer Bell in HBO’s The Wire. In fact, since then, we’ve advocated for him to star in basically everything. James Bond? Should be Idris. Every single romantic comedy? Put Idris in it! Mary Poppins? Whatever, he’s British, make him the new Poppins. He’s just delightful, and not just because he’s gorgeous (but he is gorgeous, LAWD).
When he was informed that he was chosen as the Sexiest Man Alive, Idris Elba had the cutest reaction. He says, “I was like, ‘Come on, no way. Really?’ Looked in the mirror, I checked myself out. I was like, ‘Yeah, you are kind of sexy today.’ But to be honest, it was just a nice feeling. It was a nice surprise — an ego boost for sure.” Hot AND confident? We love that in a man.
There were some other men included in the issue, and OK, we’re totally down with pretty much all of them.
Armie Hammer? Yes please. Jeff Goldblum? Come to mama. Winston Duke? HAVE YOU SEEN BLACK PANTHER? And sure, we’ll admit that this is all pretty frivolous and just for fun. But when things are as bleak as they are right now, we can use all the fun we can get, right? So we’ll fawn over an issue of a magazine, and make jokes about the Sexiest Man Alive. It’s the little things!
