A Singaporean for Sexiest Man Alive?

A Singaporean for Sexiest Man Alive?

"I'm at a payphone, trying to call home, all of my change I spent on you."

For more than a year now, I've been roused awake every morning by Adam Levine's high, whiney voice as he sings the opening line to his band Maroon 5's hit, Payphone.

My wife uses the song as her ringtone and the morning alarm on her phone.

It could've been worse. It could've been Moves Like Jagger.

When I read last week that US celebrity gossip magazine People selected Levine as the Sexiest Man Alive, my first reaction was "Why?".

Is George Clooney dead? Did I hallucinate that he's still alive like Sandra Bullock did in the movie Gravity? (Uh... if you haven't seen the movie, belated spoiler alert. Sorry.)

I'm so out of touch I thought Clooney was last year's Sexiest Man Alive.

In reality, he hasn't been Sexiest Man Alive since 2006. Last year's Sexiest Man Alive was Channing Tatum, who has a great body, but that face - cringe.

Still, his "epic split" on You- Tube almost - almost! - rivals Jean Claude Van Damme's in the now famous Volvo commercial.
