Blake Shelton's 'Sexiest Man Alive' Jacket Is A Middle Finger To The Haters

posted by Victoria Messina, PopSugar -

I was honestly having a bit of trouble coming up with a New Year's resolution, but then it unexpectedly landed on my lap, courtesy of Blake Shelton. The 41-year-old country singer took the stage during the season 13 finale of The Voice wearing a blazer with "Sexiest Man Alive" spelled out in sparkly lettering on the back. And now I officially know that my goal for 2018 is to personify the exact harmony of unabashedly extra and undeniably petty that Blake accomplished during that episode.

Blake's bold move comes one month after he was granted People magazine's coveted title of "Sexiest Man Alive." The decision caused quite the stir on the internet, as many openly shared their not-so-positive yet spot-on thoughts and opinions on the news. In fact, Blake's new title caused so much of a stir that it even warranted his own version of Jimmy Kimmel's "Mean Tweets" segment, in which the country star recited a handful of reactions from all over the internet.

But it looks like Blake didn't sit back and sulk in his apparent unsexiness for too long, as he proudly repped his title in shiny, bedazzled lettering during The Voice finale on December 19. Needless to say, fans had some feelings about Blake's ballsy blazer, which they voiced all over Twitter. Some were totally here for his pettiness, with one even calling his outfit choice their "favorite thing to happen this year."

Others weren't too psyched about it, with many piping up to reassert their aversion to People's choice for this year's award.

Regardless of where you stand on the matter, there's no denying that Blake's move is commendably confident, and that's something we should all aspire to be.
