Ed Sheeran, we have a bone to pick with you.
On Wednesday (November 20) it was revealed that Ed had joined a long list of good-looking men like Idris Elba, Justin Timberlake, the Hemsworth brothers and Adam Levine, but instead of basking in his glory, Ed called the nod "utterly ridiculous."
Millions of Sheerios across the world would beg to differ, so we've compiled 13 reasons why Sheeran is absolutely one of 2013's Sexiest Men Alive.
1. Lyrics That Melt Hearts
Sheeran may just be one of the most impressive lyricists in music today, penning songs for One Direction and Taylor Swift. Yet, it's his own songs that truly tug at the heart strings. Have you listened to "Kiss Me" lately? "And your heart's against my chest, your lips pressed to my neck/I'm falling for your eyes, but they don't know me yet."
2. Must-See Performances
As if the lyrics weren't enough, Ed's concerts are a must-see event. Although it is just him and his guitar on stage, Ed, who just wrapped up 18 months of touring with three nights at New York's famed Madison Square Garden, captivates his audience who are spell-bounded by his utter awesomeness.
3. Sheerios Have His Back...
His fans are so dedicated to his success that earlier this year they helped crown him the winner in MTV News' Musical March Madness tournament, which gave the "biggest award" he ever received, even though it eventually broke. (Don't worry, we gave him a new one)
4. ...And He Has Theirs
Ed thanks his biggest fans for their support by giving away front row seats to his concerts.
5. He Can (Kinda) Rap
Along with singing, Ed can apparently freestyle rap, just take a look at this video. Now, during his show's Sheeran does a medley of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" and Blackstreet's "No Diggity."
6. Likes To Play Dress-Up
Ed isn't afraid to get into costume, whether it's dressing up like a Lego Man, turning into the "albino Charlie Chaplan" while on tour with Taylor Swift or most recently, donning a Gingerbread man costume on Halloween,which he proudly sported during a concert at New York's Mercury Lounge. But it was his recent Throwback Thursday picture of him dressed as a clown that had fans fawning over his cuteness.
He Can Cook! ...Sort Of
Some say the fastest way to a woman's heart is through her stomach, and while we suggest Ed try out another recipe, we can appreciate the effort.
8. Ed Loves Being A Red Head
Ed Sheeran is proud to be a redhead, so proud, he even wanted MTV to add a "Best Red Head" category to the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. Unfortunately, that didn't happen, but that hasn't stopped Ed from showing off his red locks.
9. Ed Sheeran + Taylor Swift = BFF
For the better part of the year Taylor and Ed have been jet-setting across the country on her Red Tour, sharing the stage to perform their hit single, "Everything Has Changed." While rumors were swirling that these two were an item, the two insist they are "just good friends,"so good that Taylor made a surprise appearance at his New York concert.
10. Everyone Wants To Be Friends With Ed
In addition to Swift, Ed has a lot of friends in high places. He hangs out with One Direction, collaborates with Lupe Fiasco, was personally invited by Elton John to perform with him at the Grammys Awards, apparently sleeps at Courtney Cox's beach house, and just became besties with Kermit.
11. He's A Jewelry Designer... With His Mom!
In addition to touring and making his new album, Ed has somehow found the time to design jewelry... with his mom. And get this: the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton has been spotted wearing one of his moms designs.
12. This Was His Response To Making The Sexiest Men Alive List:
"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."
13. He Holds Babies
Nothing says sexy like a man holding a baby. Let's all say it together, "Awww."
