Snoop Dogg may not be People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive, but he’s the sexiest man alive according to his own Instagram.
Last week, People named John Legend the 2019 Sexiest Man Alive, but Snoop Dogg had other ideas. The rapper has swooped in and dismantled John Legend’s crown by photoshopping himself on People’s Sexiest Man Alive magazine cover for all of Instagram to behold.
The edited image appears just as Legend’s cover does, but Snoop’s head has been edited on top of John Legend’s body. He also made an effort to jazz up the bowtie a bit, swapping out Legend’s solid-colored tie for a brighter, more busy look.
The edited issue cover reads, “Snoop Dogg: How a Crip Took Your Chick.”
Snoop Dogg took his edited photo to the ‘gram to thank his fans for the honor. “Thank. You,” the caption reads. Celebrities and fans alike flooded the comments section to share their thoughts on Snoop Dogg’s ‘Sexiest Man’ bit.
“Look at God workin,” Ray J writes. He then followed up, “Wait I thought this was real lol,” unaware at first that the photo had been edited.
Some, however, saw through Snoop Dogg’s tricks, but still wished the fake People cover was a reality. Barbara Corcoran of “Shark Tank” took to the comments with her own thoughts. “Now this is something I can agree with,” she wrote. She then took to Twitter to further slight John Legend’s honor.
“The Sexiest Man Alive? You’ve got to be kidding!,” Corcoran tweeted.
Despite the influx of comments from celebs and fans, John Legend himself has yet to respond to Snoop Dogg’s antics.
