As you probably already know, I have a deep and unending Pinterest love affair with Ryan Gosling. Hey girl Ryan Gosling is pretty much my favorite piece of eye candy in the whole box of delicious eye candy.
Remember the hubub last year about People’s Sexiest Man Alive? When Bradley Cooper beat out Ryan Gosling for Sexiest Man Alive 2011 and we were all clutching our pearls and protesting in the streets — I mean, for real, there were people who created signs and protested People Magazine’s headquarters. That. Happened. Of course, later it was rumored that, Hey Girl Ryan Gosling respectfully declined the coveted title because he’s sexy enough on his own without a magazine confirming it. Hey Girl Ryan Gosling is far too hipster for that pedestrian nonsense.
Yesterday People released this year’s Sexiest Man Alive 2012, none other than star of this year’s Sexiest Movie Alive, Magic Mike, Channing Tatum. The fact that I always want to type his name Channum Tating aside, I was shocked, surprised and in complete disagreement with this choice. Hot, sure. Glistening chiseled bod? Correct. Able to accurately portray a stripper? Absolutely. Sexiest Man Alive? Eh. Meh. Oh. Hey Girl Ryan Gosling was robbed. Again.
In the article, Channing Tatum was surprised about being awarded Sexiest Man Alive 2012:
“My first thought was, ‘Y’all are messing with me,’….I told Jenna after we’d been in the bathtub washing our dogs because they’d gotten skunked.”
America, THIS IS YOUR SEXIEST MAN ALIVE .
There is no contest. Hey Girl Ryan Gosling is way sexier.
I think the choice is clear. Hey Girl Ryan Gosling was beat out of Sexiest Man Alive by a beefcake. Although EarthHam makes a very sound argument about how People got it right using MATH (and math doesn’t lie) (Just like Shakira’s hips)(2006 called and they said we could keep that dated Shakira joke), Buzzfeed posted an amazing pictorial about how People got Sexiest Man Alive wrong.
Hey Girl Ryan Gosling is OK with it.
