People magazine crowns Blake Shelton king of heartthrob and Twitter has so many questions
This week People magazine dubbed Blake Shelton, country singer and star of NBC’s “The Voice,” as the “Sexiest Man Alive.” Naturally, Twitter had feelings about this. The result was a collective virtual head-scratching that is pure comedic gold.
Many people were shocked at the nomination, including Shelton himself who humbly accepted and even joked that he couldn’t “wait to shove this up his former co-star, Adam Levine’s ass.” He also told the publication, “”Y’all must be running out of people. Like, wow, we’re down to somebody who is somewhat symmetrical.”
The Twitter-verse had a friggin’ ball with this news and did what Twitter does best, turned a trending topic into a thread of hilarity.
Blake Shelton is, at best, the sexiest divorced dad at this barbecue

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” There comes a time when one can no longer stand by quietly as our society chooses a dangerously unqualified man. So today, I break my silence to ask… Blake Shelton? Really?

Trump is President. Blake Shelton is the Sexiest Man Alive. Snooki better start planning her Nobel Prize speech.

Many were legit worried that maybe many hot men died.
Blake Shelton was named sexiest man alive? My condolences, I didn't realize so many men had passed away last night. #BlakeShelton

#BlakeShelton You know the apocalypse is upon us when Blake Shelton of all people is named sexiest man alive. In what alternative Universe is this possible. Did 80% of all men suddenly die?

No shade. But I'm honestly and truly still sitting here flabbergasted that #BlakeShelton is people's sexiest man this yr. In a world where Jason Mamoa, Godfrey Gao, Idris Elba, Oscar Isaac, and Jeff Goldblum exist. Like… pic.twitter.com/nnQybGFjx6

Others likened it to ordering shit online that never arrives how it looks in the picture.

Whether you think Blake Shelton is the hella hot, or hella NOT, we all know sexy is about so much more. More than could ever be captured in a magazine photo. Having a sense of humor about it all might be the sexiest characteristic Shelton has — which is hands down, universally hot.
