I've always been aware of John Legend. I mean, how could I not be as he has a spectacular voice and his songs have consistently been on radio play since their releases. In the past couple of years, I've actually been more interested because of my admitted obsession with his fiance Chrissy Teigen's twitter! She is my favorite to see pop up on my timeline and she kind of reminds me of myself: gorgeous and funny. (I kid.) (But seriously, she is hilarious and I highly recommend following her there!) So, in addition to cracking up at what she writes, I also couldn't help but become more interested in John Legend. He's attractive, intelligent, and a legit musician*.
It was when he sang "All of Me" on Oprah's show and Chrissy, his self-described muse, was standing there, I just melted. How could I not with lines like these:
- "Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections"
- "How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you're crying you're beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I'm around through every mood
You're my downfall, you're my muse."
* As opposed to an entertainer, which is what a lot of singers are nowadays.
