Quote of the Day: John Legend on Chrissy Teigen

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

John Legend defends his choice of women and currently his Thai-Norwegian girlfriend Christine Teigen:

“People are automatically condescending. They expect her to be dumb and say, ‘Oh you’re just dating a dumb girl because she’s hot.’ But people judge you either way. If you’re dating a girl who’s kind of regular, you hear, ‘Why are you dating her?’ I don’t get caught up in it. I’m more concerned with my happiness.”

We don’t ever remember him dating someone who is “kind of regular”. It’s quite obvious what makes him happy.

    Right all his women are models.


    She is pretty but what’s wrong with her leg?

  • Harlem Chic

    Whatever short man. I love when brothas think that chicks are so crazy for them. She only wants you because you’re a singer…if you we’re walking down the block said chic wouldn’t even be checking for you….

  • Lady

    I know thats right… Glad he knows that, alot people dont know that no matter what u do, people are always goin to judge, and once u block them out & do you, life is much more simpler…

    I don’t think people trip because she’s “hot”, I think people trip because he’s NEVER been spotted with a Black woman and all his girlfriends have the same “exotic” look. I love John Legend, but as someone else stated, if he were just a dude on the block, none of these “hot” women would give him the time of day!

  • Juelz

    yeah you said it right Harlem chic!! I agree

    Why you have a few coins OF COURSE these “exotic” chicks will be after you. Any other time, they wouldn’t even care about you. I guess when you get a few dollars, black women are no longer good enough. I’mjussayn’…

    Black men always try to justify dating outside of their race. It sounds like a guilt thing to me. How bout you do what you do & stop giving a fu*k about what people think. Seems like you’re the one with the problem.

  • Lady

    Like these women with all this plastic surgery… They pay all that money still get disparaged & talked about.. Teased in all the tabloids..

    “The key to a life long romance is to love yourself first”.. Then you wouldnt give a damn what people think, b/c no matter what, theyre still goin to find something to scorn you about…

  • Lady

    I dont think that when men date white woman that means that black woman are no longer good enough.. Simply means they dont discriminate.. Theres nothing wrong with that.. I guess it takes an optimistic person so see things in a positive light.. Negative people with always see things 1 dimensional & close minded…

  • Bones Jordan, Paige's man who no longer says nigger or any variation of....

    @ Taj, another hater. What’s really goin’ on? This brother can’t get him an exotic woman of color? Damn.

    I don’t care who anyone dates. To each his own. If the girl makes him happy that’s all that matters. He’s right about the regular girl thing. Usher takes more heat than anyone who dates model chicks exclusively. He even takes more heat than dudes who date white women. All because his girl is not a model type.

  • Strong Black Man

    lol there’s no way she gives head though…

    @taj… “I guess when you get a few dollars, black women are no longer good enough. I’mjussayn’…”

    I feel you on that..My boy made an observation in his state of Ohio..He said every black chick on campus that he thought was fine dated white guys..Not that they did it because of bad past experiences with black men, but because the way those women grew up…lol it is Ohio..So I think it happens a lot more on the other side too…

  • LEE

    Who gives a F**K! Let black men do what ever they want to do.

  • MAD

    I’m pround of JL. That right do you and don’t worry about any one else if you’re happy that is all that matters. JL did date a sister Jessica White the super model and he date another sister. This time around is not a sister. I still say what every make you happy go for it JL and if you want a sister check me out next. I ain’t mad at you.

  • Strong Black Man

    @Bones…lol I feel you…I mean she is attractive and John Legend looks soft, I don’t mean gay, but soft..He’s a crooner so this type chick fits him..A sista would walk all over this dude..real talk

  • Onan

    So let me understand this…hot women only date guys with money? Shyeah right! I have seen plenty of foine azz women with dudes that have nothing going on for them but they have game and confidence. As far as John Legend goes; it would always be something…either the women are too light-skinnded, or their hair is not natural enough, blah blah blah. Who cares who he likes? I like full-figured, dark-skin women with natural hair….thats me! 🙂

  • Soul Cry

    If exotic chicks is what he likes, then hey…no sweat of my back.

    Anyhow, he is right…people are going to have stuff to say no matter what you do…so all you can do is DO YOU.

    Happiness is hard to find…so when you find it, cherish it.

  • Soul Cry


    That’s what I’m saying. I never have problems finding black men that love black women. So when I see this, I could give two frigs. We all have our own tastes in the opposite sex.

    GTFOH – models aren’t dumb?

    (sarcasm ppl)

  • British Black girl

    Can someone please remind me the last time anyone commented on John Legend’s choice of partner…Loves ya Johnny boy but I thought the main concern people had was whether you were sure you actually liked women….hot or not…all that aside….do you….

  • Sale out -sell out

    JL is a sale out and I don’t support sale out. He couldn’t get a sister anyways he’s a down low type of brother. He sale out both ways races and sex. Sale out. And if his black azz didnt’ have any money she would talk to him any ways. He just another OJ, Cuba, Westley type of sale out man. F JL

  • British Black girl

    DISCLAIMER: The last sentence was not a question regarding whether Mr Legend prefered men to women but words of encouragement for Mr Legend to be himself..LOL..!
