Bruno Mars Also Made People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ + WE FIRMLY BELIEVE HE SHOULD’VE BEEN No. 1

Bruno Mars should've been People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive!

BRUNO WAS ROBBED. ROBBED! 

Maybe you heard? People magazine released their annual Sexiest Man Alive list, and it features some very, very foine-lookin’ famous dudes. And sure, Adam Levine may have earned People’s No. 1 pick as THE Sexiest Man Alive in 2013, but we have a lil’ bone to pick with the mag’s top choice. HOW could People pass over Bruno Mars??

OK, fine, the “Gorilla” singer technically ranked No. 5 on the list, and that’s something to be proud of. Heck, he even beat out Justin Timberlake (No. 7)! But here’s why he deserves the No. 1 spot: For one thing, NOBODY brings the pole-dancing community together quite like Bruno. (See: Nicole The Pole’s onstage cameo at Bruno’s EMA performance.) Bruno even simulated sex made out with a pole-dancing Freida Pinto in his “Gorilla” video! You can’t deny it, People — that is some pure, unadulterated, winning sexiness right there.

Lastly, People, have you seen Bruno wink?? Because, like, game over. We call a recount! Undecided! Hanging Chads!

Oh, um, never mind. That wasn’t the sexiest. Let’s do another one.
