Ladies, EGOT winner John Legend has replaced Idris Elba as the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’

American singer John Legend has been named People’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2019.

The ‘All of Me’ hitmaker has been handed the annual honour by the US publication and admitted it’s “not fair” that he replaced last year’s honouree, ‘Luther’ star Idris Elba, as he doesn’t consider himself as “sexy” as the 47-year-old hunk, and admitted it’s “a lot of pressure”.

The 40-year-old singer told the publication: “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!”

The ‘Ordinary People’ also admitted he’s “so proud” of his success, which has earned him EGOT status – Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony  and to have a wife like Chrissy Teigen and two children, Luna, three, and Miles, 17 months, who he feels “so connected to”.

He said: “I’m so proud that I have a wife and two kids I’m so in love with and so connected to. I’m also so proud of my career. I love writing songs and performing on stage. I get a lot of joy from it and give a lot of joy to other people. I’m pretty at ease with myself now!”

Chrissy posted a hilarious reaction to the news on Twitter, she quipped: “my secret is out. I have fulfilled my dream of having boned @people’s sexiest man alive!! an honour!!!!! ”

In February, John said he wanted to crowned Sexiest Man Alive after finding out his fellow ‘The Voice’ coaches were both awarded the honour.

The ‘La La Land’ star brought up the fact that Blake Shelton and Adam Levine have received the title during an episode of the talent show.

Blake who is in a relationship with Gwen Stefani was given the accolade in 2017, whilst the Maroon 5 frontman claimed the title in 2013.

John is one of the youngest EGOT winners, he became the first African-American man to garner the EGOT status in 2018 as reported by The Sauce. He said he wanted to extend his title to “EGOTSMA” status.

Legend is one of four gentlemen of colour to receive the accolade since the inaugural “Sexiest Man Alive” spread in 1985. As previously reported by The Sauce, the other three individuals to receive this prestigious title include actor and wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in 2016, award-winning actor Denzel Washington 1996 and British actor, artist and dj Idris Elba in 2018.
