John Legend is serving up some major hotness in his feature for Los Angeles Confidential magazine’s December 2014 issue.
The 35-year-old singer talks to the magazine about his model wife Chrissy Teigen, his hit song ‘All of Me’, his childhood and more.
Read excerpts from his interview below.
On whether he loved his wife, Chrissy Teigen since the moment they first met: “Not right away. I’m more cautious than that. I wasn’t like, ‘This is the woman I’m going to marry’ from day one. For me I’m the kind of person who needs to grow into that feeling. It was probably a couple of years in when I could already see us being together forever.”
On hit song “All of Me” being inspired by Chrissy: “The more you know someone, the more you’re inspired by your relationship. Also, I grew up just learning what it means to be in love with somebody… because I had never really been in love before. I guess you have to grow enough to be able to write that song with sincerity and authenticity.”
On his childhood: “I was a very precocious kid, so I was very thirsty for learning. I wanted to learn the piano. I wanted to study the encyclopedia. I wanted to do everything. I just wanted to soak up a lot of knowledge.”
