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.

Famous Men Who Waited Forever To Marry Their Wives

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. pf"



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

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.

John Legend Links Up With NAACP To Fight Restrictive Voting Laws

John Legend ain’t too happy about some of the voter ID laws in United States. The “Made to Love” singer plunged into a political campaign and launched a concert in North Carolina, a state with restrictive voting rights, to fight for America’s voice in choosing the country’s leaders, reports.

In partnership with the NAACP, Legend urged his fans to promote voting rights at his recent concert in Durham, N.C. Legend sought to make registering to vote convenient by convincing concert-goers to simply text “LEGEND” to 62227. The Grammy Award-winning crooner will continue to campaign for this cause throughout his “Made to Love” tour.

“Launching in North Carolina, a state feeling the brunt of new restrictive and discriminatory election laws, will set the tone for concert goers across the country in states where some of the most egregious law changes have been introduced or implemented,” said the Rev. William Barber, president, NAACP North Carolina State Conference.

Ever since President Obama was elected in 2008, Republican legislative leaders have searched for measures to stifle the minority vote, though they argue they’re passing these laws to prevent voter fraud, which isn’t  problem in this country. As a result, there have been “fewer early voting days, restrictive voter ID laws, purging of voter rolls and more,” adds. It’s maddening, Legend says, that there are people who would implement laws to restrict some Americans from voting.

“Generations have fought hard and even died for this right, and now is not the time for our country to move backwards. All of our leaders should seek to have inclusive elections that reflect the true will of the people, no matter who they intend to vote for. The politics of exclusion are unacceptable,” Legend said in a statement.

Adding fuel to Legend’s fire, a July 2013 Supreme Court decision nullified a section of the Voting Rights Act that served to protect underrepresented American voters. The NAACP, which has launched its own battle against anti-voting strategies, is pleased that Legend is joining their team to heighten their efforts:

“[John Legend's] influence as a world-renowned artist and activist will be a catalyst to spread the word that it is not enough just to exercise your right to vote. We must also protect our right to vote for future generations,” said NAACP interim President Lorraine C. Miller.

Legend is no stranger to political activism. We’ve seen the singer wholeheartedly support Obama’s 2008 campaign. Legend sang “If You’re Out There,” a song for voter engagement, at the Democratic National Convention.

No thanks
