Adam Levine may have run away with the title, but Ed Sheeran was also nominated for People’s Sexiest Men Alive… competition? Honour? Whatever. If he seems like an odd choice, don’t worry – he thought so too.
“One of the reasons I said yes to being in this issue is because it’s quite funny. Utterly ridiculous! I don’t think anyone sees me as a sex symbol. I don’t know who the voting party are for People, but thank you. It’s very kind. But I’m sure I’m the only person on this list who has a belly.”
“Though I guess Austin Powers was considered a sex symbol, and we share similar physical-appearance qualities. I brush my teeth though. My other usual grooming habits are showering and a shave now and then. Sometimes I put on a suit. Or not! I get voted worst-dressed quite a lot, so I obviously don’t put much thought into it.”
I love me a bit of Ed Sheeran and think he’s lovely. It’s so great to see the success he’s having here in the US. I remember when he was just a little unknown guy with a guitar in the UK, so he’s come a long way. I can’t rate his physical attractiveness, mostly because he’s not in my forte, being the wrong gender and all. That’s not to say that I can’t recognise hotness when it’s staring me in the face, but he’s just… Ed!
What do you think, ladies? Want a piece of him?

I like Jennifer Lawrence and find her willingness to be awkward and a bit eccentric in a public forum to be rather endearing. Having said that, her interview on The Late Show with David Letterman even made ME slightly uncomfortable. She seemed manic, overly hyper and couldn’t seem to slow down and just relax. I’m not sure what’s up with her – maybe this is just how she is all the time (I admittedly have read more interviews with her than I’ve watched), but man oh man.
You’ve gotta hand it to her for being one of the world’s leading ladies and still letting the world know that she’s a possible hypochondriac who shits her pants. I think Richard Lawson at The Wire best described what I was feeling:
I suppose it’s all charming, but I feel a bit of artifice and aggression seeping into Jennifer Lawrence’s whole “aren’t a I lovable good-times gal, just a real clumsy cut-up” shtick. This interview is a bit manic, like she feels like she needs to pedal a bit harder to get the same juice she used to get. Which is not good! We don’t want to see that. She should just be herself. Though I guess the trouble is, the more of these things you do, and Jennifer Lawrence does so very many interviews, you probably start to forget what that means. Herself. What is your real self, when so much of your life is the same anecdotes over and over again, answers to the same questions, an unending stream of compliments that demand modesty, or self-effacement. I’m sure Jennifer Lawrence knows her real self when she’s, I dunno, on the toilet or something, but herself as it relates to the public world, I wonder if that makes much sense to her anymore. Which is weird, and sad.
That seems right, but I still really like her.

R. Kelly is one of those guys who’s a total freak and an absolute hot mess, but you also kinda can’t help liking him anyway because he’s so hilariously ridiculous and also super talented at the same time. At least that’s how I feel, and this video from Rolling Stone only reenforced that feeling.
The mag had a sit down with Kellz and since he was bragging about how he can make anything sound sexy, they put him to the test and asked him to make songs on the spot out of random phrases. The results are REALLY funny… and surprisingly good! The “sandwich of love” one is a bit weird, but you’ve got to give him credit for trying.
Here’s a little bonus for you, as well – if you pre-order the deluxe version of his new album, Black Panties, you’ll get an ACTUAL pair of black panties with the deal. CLASSY!

Well, sort of. In fact, he had cancerous cells removed after having a mark examined by doctors. Hugh Jackman posted a photo of his bandaged nose on Instagram yesterday and used the experience as a chance to encourage fans to not only wear sunscreen, but to take control of their health by seeking the opinion of a medical professional if you happen to find yourself in a similar situation.
Here’s what he posted on his Instagram page:
Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right! I had a basil cell carcinoma. Please don’t be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!
Good on his wife for encouraging him to get that shit checked out. Skin cancer is highly treatable, but it has to be diagnosed first. I like Hugh Jackman – he’s always come across as an incredibly decent guy, and I’m glad not only that he’s okay, but that he’s used this experience to help others again.

Captioned: “Tempted to pick him up and bring him home. But quickly imagined and hoped for its rightful owner re-tracing steps to a reunion.”
Her profile photo appears to be a closeup of her eye. SJP, you so MySpace ’08. Love it. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before she follows Gwyneth.
Being on Instagram is the most interesting thing she’s done since her most recent MET Gala outfit. Enjoy, SJP! I like the Amaro filter the best.

Aaron Carter may have beaten Shaq (old school reference right there) but that’s all he’s got — he’s so broke, he’s filing for bankruptcy. It’s kind of sad. Dude’s got some major credit card debt and owes the IRS, big. Hopefully he doesn’t get into a Lauryn Hill situation. From TMZ:
According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Aaron’s assets total $8,232.16. Here’s the BIG problem. His liabilities total $2,204,854, which include a $31,166 AmEx bill.
Aaron — who was a huge pop star and is still on tour, even tonight — also owes $1,368,140 mil to the IRS.
He listed all of his assets, even his poor dog, who is listed as being worth nothing. Here some of them:
- 61″ flat screen worth $500
- 2 MacBooks
- 2 Headset Mics
- mini keyboard
- Portable Beats
- a guitar
- $60 in cash (anyone else starting to feel really sad yet?)
- 1 Louis Vuitton backpack
- a Brietling watch worth $3,750
He’s living with relatives right now. Guess that New Kids on the Block tour didn’t quite make enough. But he’s still touring, so at least he’s doing something about it.
