Josh Groban says friends and family can tease all they want about his inclusion in PEOPLE’s 100 Most Beautiful issue – he’s still “honored” to be a part of it.
“I always had a really great time flipping through the magazine and making fun of everybody,” Groban told The Associated Press Wednesday. “I’m really honored to be one of those people that I’m sure people will be criticizing.”
Groban, 27, does admit that he’d never really given the idea of beauty much thought.
“People saying you’re beautiful or you’re not is not something I generally paid attention to,” he said. “But I was very, very honored that they included me in their issue.”
The multi-platinum singer – who broke up with actress January Jones in 2006 after a three-year relationship – now remains happily single.
“I’ve kind of been going from relationship to relationship,” he told the AP. “It’s been nice to kind of rediscover myself again and be patient for whatever comes next.”
“It’s definitely my kind of humor, and I thought it would be really fun,” the famously clean-cut Groban says of the video, in which he’s shown earnestly playing a piano while spouting explicit lyrics. “I hope soon to do something like that in the future.”
