John Legend has been named the sexiest man alive by People magazine and is admittedly surprised by the honor.
The leading magazine announced that the singer would hold the title awarded last year to actor Idris Elba, a comparison he poked fun at.
Legend took to Twitter where he shared a split photo of himself in 1995 next to a current image of Idris Elba along with a caption revealing that his younger self would be "perplexed" by the "Sexiest Man Alive" title. "Hell, 2019 John is about as equally perplexed," he added. "But thank you @People for finding me sexy. I'll take it."
Legend, who is married to model and TV presenter Chrissy Teigen was unveiled as the sexiest man in the world during Tuesday's episode of the talent show The Voice, on which he serves as a coach alongside Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton.
Country singer Shelton, who was named Sexiest Man Alive by the magazine in 2017, announced Legend's win during the show.
