The ‘Sexiest Man Alive of 2019’ by People Magazine has been announced and it is none other than musician John Roger Stephens aka John Legend. John who is married to model Chrissy Teigen and has two kids together also happens to be the first black man to receive the Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony (EGOT) status for his work on stage and screen.
Talking about being named the ‘Sexiest Man Alive of 2019’ 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!” Last year Idris Elba took the title, while the following years included Blake Shelton, Chris Hemsworth, Adam Levine, George Clooney, and Channing Tatum.
John also took to his social media and shared a picture of himself alongside Idris Elba and wrote, “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.” To which his wife hilariously trolled him and wrote, “yeah but let’s see an @idriselba pic from 1995 (prob still very hot)”
John is currently the coach on the “The Voice,” while he also won an Oscar for his song “Glory” for the movie “Selma,” a Tony for co-producing the Broadway play “Jitney” and also an Emmy for producing the 2018 “Jesus Christ Superstar” where he was seen playing Jesus.
