Blake Shelton Named People Magazine's 'Sexiest Man Alive'


Blake Shelton, country superstar and The Voice judge, is 2017's Sexiest Man Alive.

Gwen Stefani knows she's going to have a happy holiday - because she's spending it with boyfriend Blake Shelton.

"I've been ugly my whole life", he added in a statement, Reuters reported. "If I can be sexy for a year, I'm taking it!"'

Shelton and Stefani have been together since November 2015, shortly after he announced his divorce from second wife Miranda Lambert.

"As proud as I am and honored that you guys asked me", Shelton went on, "that's really the only thing I care about". "This is like a certification".

On a related note, Shelton's latest album, "Texoma Shore", was number one on Billboard Top Country Albums this week.

Most of all, however, the newly minted Sexiest Man Alive is gleeful at the prospect of waving his title in the face of his fellow Voice coach - and 2013 Sexiest Man Alive - Adam Levine. "I think to describe myself as a child, one word comes to mind. And that's fat", he said.
