My Prediction for Sexiest Man Alive 2011: Justin Timberlake
You don’t think I hate myself?
I HATE MYSELF TODAY.
But remember, this is not a PREFERENCE. This is a PREDICTION. So to answer your questions, for those of you who keep emailing about Michael Fassbender...
This is PEOPLE Magazine.
How many PEOPLE Magazine subscribers do you think know Michael Fassbender?
Come on now.
Michael Fassbender is not a household name. The SMA is always, always, always a household name.
Justin Timberlake is a household name.
-Oh he’s some kind of movie actor now, I guess.
-Oh he’s, like, the best guest host ever on SNL and everybody thinks so, I guess.
-He’s over 30
-He’s American with the true American success story
-He wants it BAD. He would do anything for it. He would give up exclusive photos. He would do the interview. He would write them a f-cking song if they asked him to
-He went to the ball with a Marine and posted a (poorly written) letter on his website about how grateful he was for the opportunity.
-Some would question whether or not he had the Dude Vote. I’d say, well, he’s hosted the ESPYs and the dudes are always quoting his sh-t on Saturday Night Live so I think he’s more ahead on the Dude Vote than you think.
-He’s a douchebag (but not enough people know this)
-He cheated on his girlfriend (but she took him back so the MiniVan Majority must be all like, yay, true love!)
-His ego. (Whatever. Millions of people keep watching and forgiving Ashton Kutcher so... I don’t think the PEOPLE audience holds JT’s ego against him.)
Odds: 2 to 1
And that’s how we end.
