People Magazine today named Maroon 5 lead singer and The Voice judge Adam Levine as its sexiest man alive for 2013. They’ve got a problem with this over at Jezebel:
To be fair, sexiness is an entirely subjective concept! Apart from Alan Alda and Beyoncé, there’s probably not a single person on this planet who we can all agree is sexy. Some people — specifically those of us who are actively turned-off by charisma, charm and talent — are attracted to Adam Levine and that’s fine! It’s wrong/grody to the max, but still fine! You weirdos deserve a safe place to express your sexual perversion just like the rest of us, even if yours happens to be sicker and more puzzling than most. That said, come on, People. It’s “Sexiest Man Alive,” not “Person Who Most Reminds You of an Infection You Got from a Hot Tub” (though, weirdly, that’s a magazine I would definitely read).
