He may be handsome, but “American Idol” winner Phillip Phillips says he doesn't want to be a sex symbol.
In fact, the guitar-playing Georgia native is so gun-shy about the label, he told People Magazine, "If a girl [voted] for me because I'm cute, and then gets mad that I have a girlfriend, then she doesn't really like the music. I'm not some cute guy who is trying to be successful off that," he said. "I really want the music to come first."
Ryan Seacrest reportedly outed the love birds a few weeks back, though the identity of the 21-year-old's lady love remains a mystery.
