This time it’s a member of his G.O.O.D. Music family, John Legend, who created tons of legendary musical moments alongside the Chicago rapper.
Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen are featured in December’s issue of Vanity Fair alongside their two kids to talk about everything from Donald Trump to family life. In the piece, Legend explains that even though he spent an Easter at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s house, the two were never the best of friends.
“I’m not trying to disown Kanye because I still love him and love everything we’ve done together creatively,” he says. “But we were never the closest of friends.”
The couple goes on to talk about the complex feelings they have about Kardashian visiting the White House to help free innocent people from prison.
“It’s a cheap win for [Trump],” says Legend. “But the people being granted clemency are real people with families. So even if the clemency is won through his celebrity-whore tendencies, it’s still helpful for that family and that person. At the same time, he’s locking kids in cages and he’s a terrible human being….”
But once the story began to spread, Legend responded to a tweet from Complex clarifying his comments about West, saying that he was referring to grief and his closeness to Ye when his mother died.
Elsewhere in the interview Legend speaks on being at a recent Obama Foundation in Oakland where the two bonded over their amazing wives.
“We joked about how much our wives are loved more than we are now.”
