John Legend is PEOPLE’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ for 2019… and We’re not sure what to think about it

He’s one of the youngest EGOT winners in history. He and his wife are one of Hollywood’s iconic couples. And now, John Legend is PEOPLE’s 2019 Sexiest Man Alive.

The magazine announced that the All of Me singer would hold the title awarded last year to actor Idris Elba, a comparison he poked fun at.

“1995 John would be very perplexed to be following 2018 @IdrisElba as #sexiestman alive,” he said on Twitter. “Hell, 2019 John is about as equally perplexed but thank you @People for finding me sexy. I’ll take it.”

Last year, Legend – who People magazine dubbed “one of the nicest guys in Hollywood” – became one of the youngest people to win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony and the first African-American man to win all four. Only 14 other people have accomplished the feat, including Audrey Hepburn, Mel Brooks and Whoopi Goldberg. He is also well known for his relationship with model Chrissy Teigen.

And as could be expected, she had a lot to say about this on her Twitter.

The social(media)ite – who now calls herself on her Twitter bio a “de-motivational speaker currently sleeping with people’s sexiest man alive” – tweeted that “the sexiest man alive just made me a ham sandwich.”

And because Teigen is a celebrity on social media, she predicted that some outrage would follow. “I cannot WAIT for people to get mad about John being the sexiest man alive. it’s my new Starbucks holiday cup,” she wrote.

Well, Wendy Williams may not be mad about it, but she certainly disagrees with People’s pick for its 2019 ‘Sexiest Man Alive’.

“Alright John Legend, but not the Sexiest Man Alive,” the talk show host, 55, argued on her November 13 show. “Like, he’s cute,” Wendy admitted, however, that wasn’t enough to make her choose John as the sexiest man alive in 2019.

Wendy went on about how Chrissy and John are a “cute, thin couple,” but then volunteered her choice for the coveted title.

“You know who I like, and he’s not even the sexiest man alive — and I usually don’t like facial hair, but, in new my life, I’m meeting a lot of new men – and if I could think of one person, it’d be Jason Momoa,” Wendy said to a loud cheer from her co-hosts.

Despite putting in her two cents, Wendy also admitted that she believes the award should be extinct.

“I think People magazine needs to take away this ‘sexist people alive’ thing because there’s not one person about everything. When I think about a sexy man, I’m not thinking about John Legend, only because the first thing I think of is, I weigh so much more than him. If we were walking down the street and someone wanted to spray me with a water gun, I need a man who’s going to punch someone in the face… Like that,” Wendy explained, adding, that “John is not that guy!”

    For starters, Wendy is a fucking idiot!
    Not much of a man would want a bitch like her on his life. She’d just drain him of his entire energy and life force. Stooooooooooooopid creature!

    John is shaa a goofball. I like how he and Chrissy poke fun at each other constantly. Their marriage is one of the really cute ones I like to watch in Hollywood.

      Oh yeah, John and Chrissy’s marriage is something really special. I like how they are such goofballs with each other. their sense of humour is something I hope to share with whoever I’m growing old with. Because Bae must be someone I’ll get to always laugh with.

    He’s sexy though .
    Not the rugged kind of sexy like Idris Elba and co but the cutish, dulcet sexy.

    These pictures don’t do him justice .

    He’s a beautiful man.

    It’s pretty disappointing that even Wendy is of archaic, stereotypical opinion that male sexy should be all brawns and overly masculine-presenting. Then again, she seems to be doing pretty well in the department of pathetic.

    Thanks for breaking the norm, John. I agree with this! Whoop!!!!???

    John Legend is a whole meal, all together with a generous amout of a mouth watering side dish of sexiness biko. From his voice to his seemingly charming goofball personality…
    And then, there’s the ASS!!¡!!! ????

    I honestly don’t get the fuss this. If Blake Shelton could be given this title in 2017, just be ready for anything in d coming years.

    OAN, “sexy” is relative. For instance, almost everybody on kd is always making noise about Idris Elba but I honestly don’t find anything sexy about that man(I know I can be stoned to death for this right here and now…lol???). One man’s meat…? Everybody should just calm down biko
