According to the magazine, the 22-year-old singer is one of the hottest stars out there, being named alongside the likes of Justin Timberlake and Chris Pine. While many Sheerios were left swooning since their idol scored a spot, there’s one person who still doesn’t quite see the logic in the publication’s choice: Ed himself.
On the day the issue hit newsstands, Ed Instagrammed his feature, along with the caption “In People magazine’s sexiest man alive issue, out today. Very strange.” This was soon followed up by an interview in which the “Lego House” crooner specifically addressed the topic. He says the nomination in itself was “utterly ridiculous.” He continues, “I don’t know who the voting party [is] for People, but thank you. It’s very kind. But I’m sure I’m the only person on this list who has a belly.”
