John Legend has always been seen as one sexy man, but now, PEOPLE has officially declared him 2019’s sexiest man alive!
PEOPLE made the announcement today calling him the EGOTSMA as he is one of 15 stars in the world to achieve winning an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony, and now SMA for the sexiest man alive.
John got his major rise to stardom back in 2006 when he was awarded his first Grammy for his debut album “Get Lifted.”
Currently, the husband and father of two is a judge oh NBC’s hit TV singing competition “The Voice” for a second season and recently released a deluxe edition of A Legendary Christmas.
John shared that his musical abilities were encouraged from a young age as his mother was a huge supporter of his singing.
“Whenever we had opportunities to sing in church or in school, my mom would suggest that I do it,” he says. “She always encouraged me.”
As for his father Ronald, John credits him for teaching him about being humble while also mainlining a down to earth personality.
“My father taught me about character. He taught us by example. He always conducted himself with such grace and dignity,” he says. “My parents always taught me that if you’re going to succeed in life, part of success is having humility. It’s a good way to live life, treating other people the way you want to be treated.”
When talking with PEOPLE about his new title as SMA, he shared that it comes with a lot of pressure, especially following actor Idris Elba.
“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!”
