It’s an exciting day for John Legend, who received yet another major honor! The “All of Me” crooner was announced as the Sexiest Man Alive on Tuesday, but couldn’t help compare himself to the former honoree, Idris Elba. The Voice coach posted a side-by-side photo of the Luther actor seductively ripping his sweater off and a throwback of himself when he was 17-year-old and wearing glasses.
“1995 John would be very perplexed to be following 2018 @IdrisElba as #SexiestManAlive,” the father of two wrote alongside the pic, adding. “Hell, 2019 John is about as equally perplexed but thank you @People for finding me sexy. I’ll take it
Later, Elba himself responded with a hilarious message of love and support, writing, “My G ????????????????Congratulations brother !!! You deserve it. 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.
