Blake Shelton can’t get social media to agree that he’s the “Sexiest Man Alive,” as People anointed him this week.
So he goes on the Ellen DeGeneres show for validation.
Billboard said: “The title is sure to provide some sparring fodder to the country star and his “The Voice” co-judge, Adam Levine — who received the honor in 2013. But the ‘Sangria’ singer also has to face the barbs of Twitter users.”
But Shelton might deserve the Most Self-Deprecating Man in the World by reading his mean tweets.
One read: “Woke up this morning to the news that Blake Shelton is the Sexiest Man Alive. RIP every sexy man in the world who died in the ‘Great Sexy Plague of 2017’ overnight. You will be missed.”
Another: “Blake Shelton is sexy if you like a guy who’s always about to lean in and tell you about a hearty, healthy American dog food.”
Also: “Blake Shelton looks like the dad in a drug commercial where they list off the side effects at the end while you watch him build a birdhouse.”
People said: “All kidding aside, Shelton, 41, credits his girlfriend of two years, Gwen Stefani, for convincing him to embrace the crown.”
Shelton said: “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.”
Shelton hopes the moment doesn’t last too long.
Blake Shelton replacing the Rock as the Sexiest Man Alive is the exact equivalent of Donald Trump replacing Barack Obama as president.

I honestly thought the Blake Shelton “Sexiest Man Alive” article was an Onion article until about 3 minutes ago.

People’s “Sexiest Man” of 2017 is a frequent purveyor of weird gay panic, misogyny, and Islamophobia https://t.co/jR6SXVOkS9
