Adam Levine thanks parents for sexy status

If Adam Levine is the Sexiest Man Alive, does that make his mom and dad the Sexiest Parents Alive?

We'll go with it, as "The Voice" coach suggested as much while accepting his "Sexiest Man Alive award" on "Kimmel" Wednesday.


"This is a tremendous honor," Levine said while accepting his honor - basically just a mirror - from host Kimmel.

"A lot of people kind of trivialize this sort of thing. They say it's shallow, they think it's just a silly media stunt used to sell magazines and to perpetuate the image of Hollywood being based on looks, and that's totally true. It is. But I'm completely cool with that," Levine joked. "This award means everything to me."

Growing into someone so "cool, confident and seductive" has been "quite a journey," but not one he made alone. He has his "mother and father, both incredibly sexy," to thank for helping him get here - "especially my dad, thanks man," Levine said.

And to "Ryan Gosling, thanks for turning this down constantly, that really helped my campaign."

The idea of Gosling refusing to be named People's Sexiest Man Alive would definitely ease the minds of those who were stunned to see that their favorite meme-friendly actor had been overlooked for the top title yet again.

"I love Adam. But um, @RyanGosling, anyone?" tweeted "Community's" Yvette Nicole Brown. "C'mon now, #PeopleMagazine!"

Vanity Fair, too, was puzzled by the selection, wondering aloud in its headline whether Ryan Gosling was just too busy - again - to accept the honor. And for those who truly don't know why "The Notebook" actor is considered the rightful recipient of the Sexiest Man title, BuzzFeed found ten things he did this year that "are 5 billion times more interesting/hotter than Adam Levine's entire life."

If that seems a bit mean, look at this way: at least no one has protested outside of People magazine's offices, like they did when Bradley Cooper was named Sexiest Man Alive in 2011.

      Yes. It's payback for what your Aryan brethren did to them in WWII. This is just the beginning, Herr Hassen.

      You're referring to shallow, superficial women there, much like yourself, apparently.

      "and have access to the lifestyle you only DREAM about"

      You have no idea what lifestyle I have.

      I have all the money I could ever spend. I am as happy as a person can be. There is nothing whatsoever about Levine that I am jealous of.

      Why is it that every internet moron thinks that because you don't like someone, that they have more money than you, and that you are just jealous of them.

      My net worth is probably twice what Levine's is.

    is the hottest guy I have ever thought about in my life. His motivation in music helps me reach an ability in my music I thought I could never reach and I can still hit the high notes.

    An NBC News source confirms that vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is nixing a planned sitdown with Matt Lauer, which was to air on an upcoming episode of Today. The source adds that NBC is hoping to reschedule the interview.

    According to the former governor’s Fox News colleague Howard Kurtz, Palin is still incensed about recent comments made by MSNBC’s Martin Bashir — who said Friday that Palin deserves to be defecated on for comparing the national debt to human slavery.

      We get that you hate Palin. We also get that you are a twit. What we don't get is why you're not bothering the people in the POLITICS blog. Is it because your stuff gets deleted in 5 seconds? GO AWAY.

      Do you use every opportunity to get on the band wagon to trash Sarah Palin? Be honest, what has she ever done that creates such hate in you? You think the lying,(Bengasi) thief (who stole the White House dishes and more) is a good person.? You should be trashing her.
