John Legend Named PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive 2019
Singer John Legend has been crowned the Sexiest man alive in 2019 by PEOPLE Magazine, usurping the legendary Idris Elba.
2019 has a new king, and it is none other than the phenomenal John Legend!
Yesterday, the singer was crowned the Sexiest Man Alive in 2019 by PEOPLE Magazine.
After becoming one of the only 15 celebrities ever to achieve an EGOT status, as noted by PEOPLE, Legend is yet again making history as Idris Elba's usurper.
"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!"
Despite his fear, Legend seems to be handling the title well as seen in his photos on the cover of the magazine.
As revealed by Just Jared, the crown was officially handed over to Legend during the latest airing of "The Voice."
As expected, Chrissy had something to say about her husband bagging the title as she took to Twitter to share the news.
"I have big news, and it's killing me. I can't say it, and it's not a baby."

Legend's new title comes after he faced the heat for teaming up with Kelly Clarkson to record an updated version of Frank Loesser's "Baby It's Cold Outside."
According to USA Today, "The Voice" judges said they would update the lyrics of the song to remove lines that have not aged well in the aftermath of #MeToo.
Unfortunately, while that might seem like a commendable act, PopCulture reports that "The Talk" host Sharon Osbourne isn't buying into it as she describes the remake as "ridiculous."
