Everyone's still pissed about Blake Shelton, TBH.

After causing the internet to break in all the wrong ways by naming Blake Shelton the Sexiest Man Alive last year, People Magazine got it 100 percent correct by bestowing the honor on Idris Elba for 2018. And not only is Twitter fully parched due to an unquenchable Idris thirst, fans are also in full blown "YEAH PEOPLE, WE TOLD YOU THIS LAST YEAR" mode. Behold, the most amusing reactions:

In related news, Idris is fully aware of just how sexy he is, as you can tell from this trying-to-be-modest-but-failing quote: "I was like, 'Come on, no way. Really?' Looked in the mirror, I checked myself out. I was like, 'Yeah, you are kind of sexy today.' But to be honest, it was just a nice feeling. It was a nice surprise—an ego boost for sure."

Still waiting to be crowned Sexiest Couch Potato Alive, by the way, but whatever.
