Ed Sheeran: Sexiest Male Nod Is "Utterly Ridiculous"
Red-haired singer pokes fun at his mention on People's annual list...
Sheeran told People: "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."
He continued: "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."
He went on to address his health, stating: "I should probably cut down on the junk food and beer and try to have a healthier approach to life.
"But I won't. I say that every year, but I like living. I like enjoying myself. I haven't been allowed to tell anyone about being in this issue, but as soon as it's out, I'm going to use it as a chat-up line."
