John Legend Named People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’

Cause all of me loves all of you. Love your curves and all your edges. All your perfect imperfections. Give your all to me, I’ll give my all to you. You’re my end and my beginning. Even when I lose I’m winning. Cause I give you all, all of me. And you give me all, all of you.

Those, obviously, are the lyrics to John Legend’s All of You, but they may as well have been written by People Magazine, who have just named him The Sexiest Man Alive.

The US singer, 40, said he was “excited” by the news, but also “a little bit scared.”


“Everyone’s going to be picking me apart to see if I’m sexy enough to hold this title,” Legend told People. “I’m (also) following Idris Elba, which is not fair and is not nice to me!”

Previous winners include Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, 47, David Beckham, 44, and last year’s pick, Elba, 47.

Previous winner Elba sent his best to Legend on Twitter, telling the singer “you deserve it”. He jokingly added: “DO NOT TELL @TheRock He still thinks he’s got the title, I didn’t have the heart to tell him when I took it.”


Legend is a 10-time Grammy winner who won a Tony Award for co-producing a Broadway play.

He gained an Emmy for his work on rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar while he took home an Oscar in 2015 for co-writing the song Glory from the film Selma. He is a confirmed EGOT winner as a result, someone who has managed to win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award in their lifetime. Astonishing really!

Legend is married to model and TV presenter Chrissy Teigen. We’re sure she’s thrilled with the news.
