NEW YORK -- People magazine named Blake Shelton its Sexiest Man Alive for 2017 on Tuesday, but it took some convincing by his girlfriend Gwen Stefani to get her guy on board.
The country music superstar and coach on NBC's "The Voice" hates being the center of attention, the magazine said.
"She goes, 'Listen to me,'" recalled the 6-foot-5, Oklahoma-bred Shelton. "'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.' I've been ugly my whole life. If I can be sexy for a year, I'm taking it!'"
