Watch John Legend’s “You And I (Nobody In The World)” Video, Starring Chrissy Teigen And Laverne Cox

Watch John Legend's "You And I (Nobody In The World)" Video, Starring Chrissy Teigen And Laverne Cox
It's Laverne!

I’m generally pretty meh on John Legend’s music because it’s basically 24/7 lovemaking music, which is nice and all, but not really my daily jam. I am, however, really digging the new music video for his song “You And I (Nobody In The World,” which follows in the footsteps of Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful” and Beyonce’s “Pretty Hurts,” with the intention of spreading positive body image and self esteem. “You were fine in my eyes, a half and hour ago,” Legend sings. While I’m inclined to be a little irked by a dude telling women that they’re good enough, but the message is bolstered by the casting for the video, featuring women of all ages, races, body types and backgrounds, looking at themselves in the mirror and showing a wide range of emotions. Legend’s wife Chrissy Teigen is in the video too, but I was especially thrilled to see actress and trans rights activist Laverne Cox from “Orange Is The New Black.” Overall, cool stuff. [Idolator]

I Adore The Way “Humans Of New York” Covered Celebs At The Met Gala

Humans Of New York,” a collection of street-style photos and interviews gathered throughout the city, is one of my favorite blogs in the world. I love how refreshingly honest and vulnerable it is in capturing people’s stories. Apparently, I’m not the only one — Vogue invited HONY creator Brandon Stanton to cover the Met Gala. Stanton usually photographs everyday people, so at the Met, he treated his celebrity subjects just like any other New Yorker he’d stop on the street. His street-style photos of the event are presented the same way his everyday photos are : captioned by a simple quotation without the subject’s name. Keep reading »

Chrissy Teigen & John Legend Once Had Sex Under A Blanket On An Airplane

“We were on our way to Thailand to see my parents, flying commercial first-class. We were under a blanket. We weren’t even in one of those pod things. I feel like we should get a trophy for that.”

Chrissy Teigen, don’t get greedy! Your trophy for joining the mile-high club with John Legend is GETTING TO JOIN THE MILE-HIGH CLUB WITH JOHN LEGEND. [Cosmo]

“All men should be feminists. If men care about women’s rights the world will be a better place.”

John Legend totally gets it. We can’t expect real social change if we don’t also encourage men to participate in the process. Chrissy Teigen is one lucky lady. [Celebitchy]

Celebs Who Endorse Donald Trump For President — And The Ones Who Don’t

If Donald Trump seriously runs for president (which I don’t think will happen, but still) and gets so much as one single vote in the primaries, I am moving to Canada. No ifs, ands or buts about it. The man who popularized frou-frou pompadours on men, trashy divorces, and the phrase “You’re fired!” is like a one-man encyclopedia entry for the phrase “ugly American.”

Whaddya know, a lot of celebs agree with me: Susan Sarandon, Cher, Tracy Morgan. And then there are the yokels who would actually “Vote Trump!” And there’s quite a few of them… Keep reading »

A Look Into John Legend’s Apartment

John Legend recently opened up his Bowery home to New York magazine. He says he wanted a unique space with plenty of light, not a cookie-cutter box. While John’s 1,350 sq. ft. apartment does have floor-to-ceiling windows, giving his home plenty of light, it also looks a little too styled for my taste. Everything, including John and his model girlfriend Chrissy Telgen, seems to be placed just so. That’s not to say I would mind living in this apartment — it also contains a music room, an entertaining room, walk-in closets, and beautiful views of downtown Manhattan. And to think, a decade ago, John shared an East Village walk-up apartment with two college friends. Check out more photos of John’s apartment after the jump. [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »

John Legend Makes Me Want To Be A Ho-Ho-Ho!

Last night, “A Colbert Christmas” made even this Jew get into the holiday spirit. The hilarious cheeseball musical spoof featured Feist, Willie Nelson, Elvis Costello, Jon Stewart, Toby Keith and some smooth dance moves by the big man himself, Stephen Colbert. While it might be hard to stand out in that crowd, John Legend, dressed as a sexy park ranger, got me in the mood to be a gift that keeps on giving. What is it about a man in uniform?! John did a hot little number about eggnog with nutmeg. With funny lines like, “Serving eggnog without nutmeg is like serving turkey without a duck and a chicken inside it” and seductive lyrics like, “it’s pure, and it’s fine, and it’s ready to grind,” let’s just say I’d like to put the “Mmm..” in his nutmeg.
