Who Is Solange’s Fiancé? 12 Popular Music Videos You Didn’t Know Were Directed By Alan Ferguson

We all heard yesterday that 28-year-old Solange Knowles is all set to marry music video director Alan Ferguson, 51, this weekend. And while we know that the two make a very charming couple, what else do we know about him? Well, I do know that he’s a pretty accomplished director, and he has worked behind the camera for many, many years. In fact, he’s actually behind some of our favorite videos over the years…

 

“Who You Wit” by Jay Z

“Who You Wit” was a song put out for the soundtrack of the 1997 film Sprung. While the video featured clips of the film (and a cameo by Joe Torry), Ferguson mostly shot Jigga man as he partook in a “Playa of the Year” contest, which he won of course. It had a very The Mack feel, which is why so many people enjoyed the visuals.

For some John Legend fans, the singer’s relationship with Chrissy Teigen (they’ve been together for eight years and married for nine months) is head-scratch worthy. Some think that their personalities don’t match. While Legend is calm, cool and collected, Teigen gets into Twitter spats with people often and doesn’t mind sharing a risque picture or two. But they have managed to fall in love and stay in love despite. Teigen sat down with Wendy Williams this week and acknowledged that they are an odd match, and also discussed how they met and what’s next for the couple (aka, the kids question…).

On People Saying They’re An Odd Pairing:

“Some people are very thrown by it because they’re like, ‘Oh my God what a weird pairing!’ Why on earth would John do that? He needs to be with a Rhodes scholar!’ Of course, I went to community college for a couple of days [laughs], but I’m not ever going to be as smart as that man.”

The
Day They Met On The Set Of A Music Video:

“I pretended not to care. We did the music video, we were together for 12 hours. This was eight years ago. And then we spent this entire day together, me in my underwear, him in a full suit. I went to go say goodbye to him at his hotel, and I just didn’t ever say goodbye that night [laughs].”

Wendy Williams: “You hooked up on the first night!?”

“Yeah, Yeah. Sometimes it works out!”

Trying To Make A Relationship Work After That:

“This had happened, and then I had to watch him on red carpets with other girls for a few months. Six months. He went on tour to Europe, and we just made sure to always stay in contact. I was pretending I didn’t care, but I wasn’t with anybody else…we’ve been together this entire time.”

If They Are Planning For Babies Now:

“My thing is, for the first five years I was really nervous, like ‘oh my gosh, am I pregnant?  What’s happening?’ But now I’ve gotten to the point where if I pee on the stick and it’s positive, I’ll have happy tears.”

Nothing wrong with the 90-day rule, but if you don’t have one, it doesn’t mean you can’t have a thriving and successful relationship! But what do you think? Check out Teigen’s interview with Williams below.

Saaaang Chile! Secular Singers Who Started In The Church

There has always been a connection between gospel and secular music and some of the most popular artists have gotten their start singing in the church choir before making a name for themselves in mainstream music. For more on the black church, check out the new Moguldom Studios documentary “Black Church Inc.” available on iTunes and Google Play now.

Singers Who Started In The Church

Whitney Houston

Dubbed “The Voice,” Whitney Houston’s powerful pipes helped her become one of the best-selling singers of all time. But before she conquered the world of R&B and crossed over to become an international pop icon, the “I Will Always Love You” singer honed her natural talents at the church. She first stood in the spotlight singing in the choir at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey where her mother was the choir director. After suddenly passing away in 2012, Houston returned to her childhood church for her homegoing service.

They may have eventually put a ring on it but these celebrity men were in no rush to make it official. Here are some men who waited seemingly forever to marry their women.

T.I.

Although they haven’t been married for that long, T.I. and Tiny have been one of hip-hop’s favorite couples since 2001. The former Xscape member has stuck by T.I.’s side even when he served time for gun possession and again a year later when he was locked up for a parole violation. A few months after he finished his first term in March 2010, the couple, who had been engaged for three years, tied the knot in an over the top ceremony that took place over the course of two days. But the honeymoon phase would be interrupted a few months later when the rapper returned to jail.

John Legend Serenades Us…Oh Yeah, And Chrissy Tiegen, At Billboard Music Awards

John Legend Chrissy

This has been a big year for John Legend. His song “All of Me,” which is everywhere and even has a dance remix (*frowns face*) has gone number one on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and has stayed there for two weeks. It’s his first number one, and quite a feat for a simple but simply beautiful slow jam.

Legend performed that song, as well as another lovely new track called “You and I (Nobody In The World),” which he said right before the performance was about his wife, Chrissy Tiegen.

“When I wrote this song I was thinking about when Chrissy and I go out on date night, and sometimes there is all this pressure to look so good. But this song is just letting her know that even before all the make-up and all those fancy clothes she’s already perfect in my eyes.”

Tiegen introduced her man before he took the stage to tickle the ivories while backed by a group of violinists. The camera often went to Tiegen during the performance, who nodded and vibed out to her hubby.

Check out the beautiful performance below of both “All of Me” and “You and I” and let us know what you thought of it.

Chrissy Teigen Addresses Pregnancy Rumors:”Please Stop Asking”

Model Chrissy Teigen and her R&B crooner hubby celebrated a milestone in their relationship when they tied the knot in Italy this past September. And according to some recent reports by a couple of gossip sites, the newlyweds are preparing for another major life event: the birth of their first child. The rumors regarding Chrissy’s pregnancy began swirling after she was spotted sporting what looked like the beginnings of a tiny baby bump, during a night out on the town with fellow model, Brooklyn Decker.

Chrissy took to Twitter earlier today to put an end to the rumors and blast the outlets that have been spreading them.

“Must have forgotten to tell @BrooklynDecker the big news between our tequila shots,” she tweeted with an attached screenshot from MTO.

“Drinks+dessert pizza= food baby,” Brooklyn replied. “Does this make me the daddy?”

Chrissy also agreed with a fan who pointed out that each time a tabloid falsely accuses her of being pregnant, they’re simply calling her “fat” on the “low.”

“They low key calling you fat, yo,” a fan joked.

“Lol I know, that is the best part. ‘Congrats, chubbs,’ she replied.

The “Sports Illustrated” model concluded by requesting that fans stop asking if she’s pregnant. But our guess is that they won’t have to.

“Anyhow. Please stop asking. It makes me sad every time. Thank you. Love you.”

And there you have it. Chrissy Teigen is not pregnant.
