Blake Shelton Named Sexiest Man Alive

“Y’all must be running out of people.”

That was Blake Shelton’s reaction to being chosen People’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2017.

“Like, Wow, we’re down to somebody who is somewhat symmetrical.”

The 41-year-old country superstar joins a club that includes Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Canada’s Ryan Reynolds. It also puts Shelton in the same league as his fellow The Voice coach Adam Levine (2013’s Sexiest Man Alive).

“I can’t wait to show this up Adam’s a**,” Shelton said. “That’s really the only thing I care about.”

Shelton told the mag it was girlfriend Gwen Stefani who urged him to accept the honour.

“She goes, ‘Listen to me, you’re going to regret this for the rest of your life if you don’t take this gift and just live in the moment,” he recalled.

But, Shelton knows not everyone is going to agree with People’s pick this year.

“People are going to hate me over this,” he said.
