"I was excited, but I was a little scared at the same time because it's a lot of pressure," the "The Voice" coach told the mag, which gives the out the honor annually. "Everyone's going to be picking me apart to see if I'm sexy enough to hold this title. I'm [also] following Idris Elba, which is not fair and is not nice to me!"

Taylor Swift's beef with music execs Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta escalated on Nov. 14 when the pop queen accused them of blocking her from performing her own songs at the 2019 American Music Awards. The men control Taylor's back catalog following Scooter's purchase of Big Machine Label Group, of which Scott is CEO. In a lengthy post on her social media pages, Taylor said the men "said that I'm not allowed to perform my old songs on television because they claim that would be re-recording my music before I'm allowed to next year." She added that a Netflix documentary on her last few years is in the works and that she can't use her old music in that either. "Right now my performance at the AMA's, the Netflix documentary and any other recorded events I am planning to play until November of 2020 are a question mark," she said. However, Scooter and Scott insist Taylor's claims are full of "false information." "At no point did we say Taylor could not perform on the AMAs or block her Netflix special. In fact, we do not have the right to keep her from performing live anywhere," the music company wrote in a Nov. 15 statement. "Since Taylor's decision to leave Big Machine last fall, we have continued to honor all of her requests to license her catalog to third parties as she promotes her current record in which we do not financially participate."
