People Mag’s “Sexy” Titles Are A Joke

Even by the standards of American-media hype, I’ve always thought that People magazine’s honorees are off the reality charts. Does anyone think that when they named Beyonce the World’s Most Beautiful Woman that they seriously considered candidates from Sri Lanka or South Africa or Brazil? Similarly, does anyone with more than a neuron or two in their brain believe that when People’s editors sat down to select Adam Levine as the Sexiest Man Alive (he wouldn’t even be in my top 100) that they batted around the name of a non-English-speaking candidate? Of course not. Levine, ridiculously tattooed, tried to be modest in his acceptance of the title, telling People: ”As a musician, you have fantasies that you want to win Grammys, but I didn’t really think that this was on the table.”
