Singer John Legend is People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive 2019. It shouldn't be a surprise that the liberal magazine chose Legend, who is a very vocal anti-Trump critic.
Actor Idris Elba, People's 2017 Sexiest Man Alive, congratulated Legend by joking with actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (People's 2016 Sexiest Man Alive).
"My G Congratulations brother!!! You deserve it," Elba, 47, wrote. "DO NOT TELL @TheRock He still thinks he’s got the title, I didn't have the heart to tell him when I took it."

Hollywood has waged war on toxic masculinity, so-called traditional masculinity norms that they say are harmful to women and children.
Hollywood is going to great lengths to redefine and ultimately erase masculinity in males as we know it.
Pharrell Williams, who is decidedly feminine, covered GQ magazine's 'New Masculinity' issue last month.
Williams, 46, appeared on the cover wearing a floor length yellow bubble coat that caused quite a commotion on social media.
People magazine and GQ are making it clear that a new bar has been set for manliness in America. Get used to it.
