ABC/Randy Holmes John Legend has embraced his outspoken wife, Chrissy Teigen, who continually shares everything from racey photos to embarrassing images on social media. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN, the singer explained how he initially felt about her candid posts.
“When Twitter first started, I was worried. Like, don’t be too honest, don’t share too much,” Legend says. “But, then, I think she’s actually more brazen on Twitter than she is just in regular life. She shows more of her sweet side in regular life.”
He adds that Chrissy’s views are not his and that’s OK. “A lot of times, they want us to be like the president and first lady, where anything she says represents my views or represents us as a couple,” he says. “I feel like she should be her own entity and her own persona. I’m not going to say, ‘So you can serve my needs and my career, you have to muzzle yourself and not be who you are.’ Because part of what I fell in love with was that person who she is.”
