Blake Shelton is a lot of things. He's a hilarious host on The Voice. He's Adam Levine's number one frenemy. He's a country singer with a pretty strong track record of producing some romantic love songs. He's Gwen Stefani's bae post-Gavin Rossdale. He's southern. He's Miranda Lambert's ex-husband. And now, Blake Shelton is People's Sexiest Man Alive. He has now officially been dubbed "sexy."
And he's not just casually sexy in the way you and your roommate think the single dad who lives next door with his 4-year-old daughter is sexy. No, People has placed Blake Shelton right up there with The Rock, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, David Beckham, Channing Tatum, and the likes. And that's just to name a few. To be honest, I personally agree. I love Blake Shelton. I love his music, and I love Gwen Stefani, so the fact that he makes her happy warms my heart. I mean, a guy who can make great music that speaks to me aaaaaand who makes Gwen happy? I'm very much on board with this decision. Nice work, People. But unfortunately, not everyone seems to be seeing things the same way as I am. No, in fact, most people on Twitter actually seem to be getting pretty heated about the decision for the Sexiest Man Alive this year.
This person can't seem to spot the sexy.
Literally not a single person in this Twitter user's squad can find the sexy.
This user just sees this as yet another person getting a title they don't deserve in 2017.
This guy straight up does not "want to live in a world where Blake Shelton is the Sexiest Man Alive."
Blake Shelton reminds this guy of... someone who sells dog food?
The decision has made this guy lose all faith in straight people.
This woman thinks it all has to be a prank. Definitely a prank.
This guy kindly reminded everyone that People skipped over a ton of hot Indian men for Blake.
This guy thinks this decision couldn't have been made sober.
OK, so yeah. A lot of people were confused. But then, there were some people who kind of had Blake Shelton's back.
There's this guy who is totally happy for him... sort of.
Or there's this woman who thinks he's sexy... in a Hallmark movie, single dad kind of way.
Fret not, though, because he did have a couple of real fans. Both were dudes.
Like this guy who has no problem letting everyone know he's crushing on Shelton.
Or this one who thinks he's the sexiest human alive.
But at the end of the day, no one is happier about Blake being the sexiest man alive than... well, Blake.
In fact, according to People, he "can't wait" to rub this in Adam Levine's face.
He's also obvi trying to get #donthatemebecauseimbeautiful trending.
Even his drinks are turning sexy.
I mean, you gotta give it to the guy: He's got confidence. And what's sexier than confidence?
I'm sorry to the (many) haters out there, but I stand by my previous statement. I'm freaking pumped Blake Shelton was named Sexiest Man Alive this year. He's hot, he's hilarious, he dates my favorite singer of all time, aaaand he's got confidence. (Although, of course, The Rock was a pretty solid choice as well last year, and he did tweet at me once — not even kidding — so I do feel a little bit of loyalty to him.)
