John Legend Achieves His Biggest Dream - Gets Named Sexiest Man Alive
(AllHipHop News) John Legend has fulfilled his dream of becoming an "EGOTSMA" after being named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive of 2019.
John Legend already holds EGOT status - after winning an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony - and laughed during an episode of U.S. TV show "The Voice" back in February he wanted to make it a full haul by nabbing the Sexiest Man Alive title.
And the father-of-two's dreams came true on Tuesday (November 12th), as his fellow "The Voice" judge Blake Shelton, who himself nabbed the honor back in 2017, announced that John was the publication's hottest man of the year - following in the footsteps of last year's honoree Idris Elba.
As he told John of the news, Blake presented him with a pair of shorts bedazzled with "EGOTSMA" - with the acronym now symbolizing John's latest win.
Speaking to People about his new honor, John said: "I was excited, but I was a little scared at the same time because it’s a lot of pressure. Everyone’s going to be picking me apart to see if I’m sexy enough to hold this title. I’m (also) following Idris Elba, which is not fair and is not nice to me!"
