People magazine has announced it’s annual “Sexiest Man Alive” and this year Idris Elba takes the crown!
No argument here, Idris is sexy as hell. Additionally, he’s only the third Black man ever to land the coveted spot — Denzel scored it in 1996 and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson nabbed it 20 years later in 2016.
However, if we were to play devil’s advocate, we’d have to admit there are a few other men that could have taken the crown and we wouldn’t have been mad at all.
MICHAEL B. JORDAN
This one is obvious, but it still needs to be stated. Michael Bae is fine and deserves to be labeled as such. People, what’s up? Why is it taking so long? Jordan has had an incredible year with the success of Black Panther and the impending release of Creed II. This is his time!
Will is ‘OG’ sexy and, quite honestly, should have landed on the list a long time ago. Now, the actor is 50 years old, but has found new favor amongst a younger fan base with his funny antics on Instagram. Big Willie is now a zaddy — People recognize!
King James deserves his crown! Look, we get that “sexy” may be debatable, but with the year he’s had, plus the way he gives back to his community, that is definitely an attractive quality. If Blake Shelton could get “sexiest” last year, most certainly Bron Bron could have been eligible this year.
DONALD GLOVER aka CHILDISH GAMBINO
Confidence and talent are sexy, and Donald possess an abundance of both. He gave the world “This Is America”, the least People could have done is give him the title of sexiest! Maybe there’s a runner-up position?
No man on the planet had a better year than Bruno Mars. Period. His music, the tour, the money — Mars is the man in 2018! It would have been nice to cap off his incredible year with the cover of People’s sexiest issue. But alas, maybe he’ll get a shot next year.
