American Country singer-songwriter and a judge on The Voice, Blake Shelton, has been named 2017 sexiest man alive.
Shelton, 41, graces the cover of People’s annual issue devoted to the men we love, and inside the magazine’s pages, the 6-foot-5 Oklahoma-bred musician who just released his new album, “Texoma Shore” opens up about his heartthrob status.
“I’ve been ugly my whole life. If I can be sexy for a year, I’m taking it!” joked the singer, who appears in the special issue with dozens of other Hollywood hotties, including the stars of “This Is Us,” who nabbed Sexiest Cast honors.
The 41 year old is dating fellow judge and singer, Gwen Stefani, 48.
When Gwen heard of the news, she said:
“What? Oh my god, well they got that right! “Wow, I knew I was on to something.
Wow, I’m gonna look really good huh? I already had scored but now I really scored,” she added.
Shelton’s favorite thing about winning the Sexiest Man Alive title? He can flaunt it in front of his “Voice” rival and 2013 Sexiest Man Alive — Adam Levine.
“As proud as I am and honored that you guys asked me,” he joked to People, “that’s really the only thing I care about.”
