Blake Shelton a first for any country singer to be named Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine, prompting The Voice judge to shake off his shyness about his looks. “I’ve been ugly my whole life,” Shelton, 41, said in a statement on Tuesday. “If I can be sexy for a year, I’m taking it!”
His most recent album, “Texoma Shore,” was released earlier this month.
Shelton told People magazine that he could not wait to tease his fellow Voice judge and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine with his Sexiest Man title, which Levine won in 2013.
“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,” Shelton joked. The singer also said that while he tries to stay in shape and eat healthy, he does have a weakness for snacks such as jalapeno poppers and pickles, especially when he is home in Oklahoma.He said that Stefani had encouraged him to accept the title of Sexiest Man Alive.
