Every year, starting in 1985, People magazine selects a famous man as a sex symbol. In 2019, he became the 40-year-old American singer John Legend.
John Legend is now not only a famous singer, musician, songwriter, loving husband Chrissy Teigen and a caring father of two children – the 3.5-year-old daughter of the moon and 1.5-year-old son Miles, but also the sexiest man of the year according to People. This was announced to him and the public by his co-host on the air of the next issue of the American version of the show “Voice” on NBC, in which Legend is sitting in the chair of the mentor. According to Legend himself, he was very surprised and even scared when he learned that the magazine awarded him a similar title:
I was glad, but at the same time scared, it is a lot of pressure and responsibility. Everyone will now tear me apart and examine me under a microscope to see if I’m sexy enough to wear that title.
In addition to this achievement, the artist has many professional awards: 10 Grammy awards in various nominations, as well as an Oscar and Golden Globe for the best Glory song for the film Selma, both of which he received in 2015.
Over the years, People have become sex symbols for Tom Cruise, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Harrison Ford and many others. In 2017, this honorary title was awarded to singer Blake Shelton, and last year, actor Idris Elba . By the way, the latter has already congratulated his successor on a well-deserved award.
