One thing girls and guys can agree on is the fact that John Legend is a straight up pimp. He's on that Justin Timberlake/Derek Jeter/Jay-Z level. Dudes respect the hustle, while that combination of style and falsetto makes the ladies melt. He's won nine Grammys, several awards from the Songwriting Hall Of Fame, and has sold millions of albums around the world. Putting together a Friday Fives was obviously the next thing up on his bucket list. Oh, and he's also got the coolest woman in the game on his arm -SI Swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen. On top of being smoking hot, she's incredible on Twitter and eats like a champ. Put a ring on it.
In order to get Mr. Legend's perfect for picks, we had to pull him away from his time in studio with Kanye and his crew, where he's working on a new record that promises to be the best of his career.
To keep up with the latest JL happenings, follow him on Twitter. And Chrissy Teigen, if you're reading this, we're ready for a Friday Fives from you too. We promise to stop stalking you on Twitter once that's happened. Maybe.
John's "Perfect for" Picks
“Immaculate service, wonderful food. It’s a New York institution. Treat yourself!”
“We live in the East Village, and we’ve eaten here probably more than any other restaurant in the last few years. My favorite dishes are the Momofuku Ramen and the chicken wings.”
"A great place for a special date. The dining room makes you feel like it's an important night, and the food more than lives up to the ambience."
"Another of our favorite spots. Right behind Momofuku when it comes to frequent visits. Some of the best sushi in town."
“It’s our neighborhood Italian spot. The pasta is delicious, and my favorite brunch dish ever is the Baked Eggs Ragu. You must try it.”
