It’s been a perplexing few years for PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive title (John Legend? Blake Shelton??) but they seem to have redeemed themselves by crowning Michael Bae Jordan the sexiest man alive in a no-brainer that stirred up hilarious shenanigans across Twitter.
This comes just a few days after a video of him testing out the Playstation 5 sent the ladies (and fellas) into a heart-eye TIZZY.
“I been on playstation from jump and the experience gets better and better, he captioned. Gameplay and graphics are 🔥 We gotta figure out how to bring back Marvel Vs Capcom 2”
More than just a sex symbol, MBJ continues to use his platform to effect change and recently teamed up with Color of Change to create #ChangeHollywood–an initiative that promotes and supports inclusion for Black creatives in the film industry.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the initiative will give companies, executives, staff, and talent recommendations and resources to support inclusion.
Directories, templates, audit analysis, taskforce convenings, writer’s rooms, and consulting sessions will also be offered in an effort to see where progress has been made throughout the industry. Jordan’s company Outlier Society Production was the first to adopt an inclusion rider, making sure that filmmakers hire and onboard a diverse cast and crew.
“This roadmap is just the beginning of the journey to racial justice. We are all accomplices in the fight to transform Hollywood, and we invite content creators and industry leaders to join us in working together to #ChangeHollywood,” Jordan explained.
“We look forward to including a variety of voices in doing what we do best: telling authentic stories, bringing people together, partnering with influential artists, and changing the rules of the game.”
We’ve seen the chiseled body actor sizzle on screen as Adonis in 2015’s Creed. In 2018 he wowed fans when he traded in his charming good guy persona and took on the villainous role of Killmonger in 2018’s iconic Black Panther film. So it’s about darn time Michael has been chosen to receive People’s most prestigious award.
As for what’s next for the burgeoning star? Jordan, who is set to star in the upcoming Tom Clancy film Without Remorse says he hopes to be “producing a lot more” and “acting less.”
“I want to make an impact all over the world and not just through the roles that I play,” he added.

350K+ Spotify Streaming Christian Artist Releases New EP On Good Friday
On Friday, April 15th, experimental Christian artist, HeIsTheArtist releases his 6-song EP, “The Faded Outro.” The EP features gospel, lo-fi and jazz mixes.
“Always remember where your soul came from, even with Heaven being faded into the background of our world”— HeIsTheArtist
In the past two years, Leemann Bassey aka HeIstheArtist has been racking up the accolades. With more than 350K Spotify streams, 7 Top 40 international iTunes charting hits (including three #1s!) across a variety of genres from Christian to jazz to electronic, and nominations in the Prayze Gospel Awards, the experimental musician has developed into one of music’s most unique and interesting new artists. On the heels of his current airplay chart hit, featuring a vocal intro from Grammy Winner, Joel Kibble (Take 6), HITA is releasing a 6-song EP on Good Friday, April 15th, 2022.
According to HeIsTheArtist, “The Faded Outro: The Crucifixion Of a Broken Heart’ is a 6 track EP that eludes to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The EP starts off with a Lo-Fi instrumental titled ‘Cloudy Sunday Morning,’ to set a somber tone. Then, comes my smooth jazz cover of the standard ‘Summertime’ to foreshadow the dark days ahead for Jesus, but at the same time providing reassurance that everything would be alright after his death. The EP then moves onto my #1 ITunes UK gospel cover of ‘I Want You Around’ by Snoh Aalegra, followed by the original version of my current single, ‘Boom (Remastered).” Both songs are meant to reassure the listeners of my belief in Jesus Christ as the Messiah. The last two tracks are my original Lo-Fi song ‘Colored’ and an original instrumental Lo-Fi track ‘The Faded Outro’. Both tracks are a reminder to remember that Jesus died on the cross to set our souls free and to always remember where your soul came from, even with heaven being faded into the background of our world.”
ABOUT HEISTHEARTIST: Hailing from Central Islip, NY and formerly signed under his birth name, LeeMann Bassey recorded and released secular r&b and dance music for Bentley Records. Inspired to release Christian music after hearing a sermon by Bishop TD Jakes, HeIsTheArtist cites influences including Prince, Chaka Khan, Sade, Maxwell, and D’Angelo.
