On Sunday, Gossip Cop reported the rumor that Shelton would be receiving this year's honor, giving fans ample opportunity to contemplate the decision. There were lots of people with questions, but right now, the most pressing one on our minds is this: Has People heard of Jason Momoa?
We aren't alone.
Of winning People's Sexiest Man Alive 2017, Gwen Stefani's boyfriend said:
Shelton serves as a coach on The Voice alongside People's Sexiest Man Alive 2013, Adam Levine.
"As proud as I am and honored that you guys asked me," Shelton went on, "that’s really the only thing I care about."
So that's good.
The 41-year-old also said he nearly didn't accept the honor, but was encouraged by Stefani.
"She goes, 'Listen to me, you're going to regret this for the rest of your life if you don't take this gift and just live in the moment,'" he shared.
