When he’s in NYC, this suspect R&B singer, his six Grammys and his model girlfriend crash in this swanky 1,350 square foot apartment. No wonder he makes good music. Can you guess who calls this crib home?
John Legend is really trying to make this ‘I swear, I’m not gay’ thing stick.
He invited New York Magazine into the East Village apartment he shares with his *clear throat* “girlfriend” Chrissy Teigen recently. And while the crib is fly, and the fact that they’ve been living their for over a year makes us almost believe these two are for real, John still sounds a little suspect when he talks about the spot.
“Most of the places you look at are cookie-cutter boxes. They don’t have any cool shapes,” he says. “When I was drawing up my ideal thing in my head, it was a unique space in a newer building, with lots of light.” Once Legend found a 1,350-square-foot apartment with floor-to-ceiling windows and soaring downtown views, he tapped Winka Dubbeldam of Archi-Tectonics to do the rest. She had her team knock down walls to open up the living area for entertaining, consolidate a series of hallways to make a master suite with a walk-in closet for Teigen, and create a music room with a Yamaha piano that doubles as a guest room. “We wanted to make it feel homey,” Legend says. “And we’re getting there.”
Does it look “homey” to you? We swear we’re not trying to be funny.
