The rumors were bouncing around last week, and now it’s officially true: Adam Levine is People’s Sexiest Man Alive. It’s an accolade that’s usually bestowed upon guys whose day job is acting — the previous five Sexiest men, for instance, were Channing Tatum, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds, Johnny Depp and Hugh Jackman — but this year the publication has given the honor to the Maroon 5 frontman/Voice coach.
In a special video interview Levine shot for People, he pays tribute to the man who coaxed the shy singer to explore his talent. “I had a music teacher in elementary school who was super amazing. He actually passed away, which is sad — he didn’t get to see what he had initially started.”
Other dudes with mics who made the mag’s Sexy list: country singer Luke Bryan, “Gorilla” crooner Bruno Mars, “Get Lucky” wiz Pharrell Williams and Mr. SexyBack himself, Justin Timberlake.
