PEOPLE, a publication that caters to a majority white audience, occasionally showcases Black men as "Sexiest Man Alive." But one Black publication still isn't happy.

Actor Michael B. Jordan was named PEOPLE magazine's Sexiest Man Alive for 2020. In fact, PEOPLE's 'Sexiest Man' was a Black man for three years in a row.

But Hello Beautiful and others are disappointed that PEOPLE didn't name another Black star as Sexiest Man Alive for the fourth year in a row.

That honor went to Paul Rudd, a white actor.

Urban blogs like Sandrarose.com regularly feature hawt Black men in Morning Wood or "Hot or Not" posts every week.

But Black Americans prefer to receive approval from other races.

Check out Hello Beautiful's list of 11 Black Men Who Could Have Been PEOPLE's 'Sexiest Man Alive' This Year.

Lil Nas X posed for a photo shoot in PEOPLE magazine with a gut full of his debut album, Montero.

LNX strapped on a prosthetic belly to celebrate the impending delivery of his "baby" on Sept. 17.

He tells PEOPLE exclusively that he decided to do the shoot after YouTuber James Charles pretended to be pregnant after listening to Megan Thee Stallion's verse on his new song "Dolla Sign Slime" for the first time.

"I was like, 'Oh my God, this is amazing,' so I immediately called my stylist," LNX claims.

"She was like, 'Wow, this all comes together. Your album. Your baby.' I was like, 'Yeah, this is my baby, huh?' As a joke, she was like, 'Yeah, you should do a pregnancy shoot.'

"I was like, 'You know what? That's actually brilliant.' So now we have this entire thing coming out, and it's going to be amazing."

Earlier this week, LNX trolled Drake by sharing an album cover of pregnant men emojis. Drake's Certified Lover Boy album, featuring pregnant female emojis on the cover, drops Friday.

"I was like, 'There's no way the universe is lining up this perfect for this to happen," LNX laughed.

A former Boston prosecutor who was once named one of PEOPLE's most eligible bachelors has been charged with rape.

Gary Zerola, 49, of Salem, was arraigned on Jan. 15 on charges of rape and breaking and entering with felony intent. He is being held without bond.

The former defense attorney was once named to People's list of "America's Top 50 Bachelors."

According to Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins, Zerola is a danger to the community because he has rape allegations dating back to 1996.

Zerola grew up in the foster care system and lived in more than a dozen homes. After aging out of the system, he graduated with dual degrees in law and public administration from Suffolk University, according to the NY Post.

Zerola was already out on bail for a 2016 rape when the January 12 attack occurred, Masslive.com reported.

Zerola met his latest victim at a gathering on Jan. 11 and dropped her off at her apartment, along with a mutual friend.

Prosecutor's say Zerola returned later than night, and the victim awoke to find him on top of her.

Zerola has pleaded not guilty to rape and breaking and entering charges.
