How did country music star Blake Shelton react to being named the sexiest man on the planet? Plenty of jokes.
"Y'all must be running out of people ... Like, wow, we're down to somebody who is somewhat symmetrical," he told People in the magazine's cover story for the special issue
He added, "I've been ugly my whole life, if I can be sexy for a year, I'm taking it. I'm taking it."
He was also quick to relish in his new title on Twitter.
Despite how much he seems to be enjoying the announcement, Shelton said it took some convincing from girlfriend Gwen Stefani before he accepted.
"She goes, 'Listen to me, you're going to regret this for the rest of your life if you don't take this gift and just live in the moment,'" he recalled.
"I already had scored but now I really scored," said Stefani, who has been dating Shelton for two years.
There was another bonus to accepting the title, Shelton added: being able to lord it over the head of his fellow judge on The Voice, Adam Levine.
"As proud as I am and honored that you guys asked me, that's really the only thing I care about," he said.
Shelton, whose album "Texoma Shore" is currently topping the Billboard country charts, said that while he has the title, he may as well enjoy it.
"I'm not going to treat this like Hugh Jackman or one of those guys who's humble about it. People are going to hate me over this. Because it's going to be used in every conversation," he said, "whether it's at 'The Voice' or at the feed store in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, or in a conversation with a doctor."
He’s funny, cute and talented, but I still wish he and Miranda had worked things out. :(
I don’t care for his new choice of Baby Mama.
Must seem like real life after Los Angeles...
It's my understanding that Miranda was the cause of the split (fling with one of her band members).
But she is still tons better to look at - and listen to - than Gwen Stefani
Every country singer needs to shave, shower and put on some new clothes. AND stop claiming they sing country music.
I like how humble he is. Or pretends to be. You never know with famous people.
that was funny when black said he was gonna use it in conversations at the feed store.
How come we don’t have a “Sexiest Woman Alive” from the same rag? Or would that be sexist?
George Straitsexier-more humble-not a cheater
Oh I do love me some Gal Gadot.
Maybe he won because it is hard to find a guy other than Harvey who likes wimminfolk.
Yep. I heard that was part of the problem, too. :(
Tractor Rap ain’t Country
My son (16yo) calls it “hick hop”
