Adam Levine may have been crowned People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” (eye roll), but Ed Sheeran definitely made the cut for this year’s issue which, according to him, it completely hysterical.

“One of the reasons I said yes to being in this issue is because it’s quite funny,” he told People. “Utterly ridiculous! I don’t think anyone sees me as a sex symbol.” Well obviously you’re wrong Ed since you were included in this year’s issue, alongside Chris Hemsworth, Justin Timberlake and more.

Ed opened up about his honor, saying, “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. 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 continued, “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.” Ugh, we just love him!
