After Legend was granted the annual honor by People magazine, the musician played it off in his self-deprecating way by admitting he was flummoxed to be following in the footsteps of British heartthrob Elba, who was bestowed the distinction the year before.
Posting a picture of himself from 1995 next to a current snap of the "Luther" actor on Instagram, the Grammy-winner wrote, "1995 John would be very perplexed to be following 2018 @IdrisElba as #SexiestManAlive. Hell, 2019 John is about as equally perplexed but thank you @People for finding me sexy. I'll take it."
