John Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, have always been #couplesgoals because they never take themselves too seriously. They banter back and forth on social media, which gives fans an inside glimpse into their home life, even with their big careers in the entertainment industry.
Legend is set to take on the biggest role of his career on Sunday. He's playing Jesus in NBC’s big spring musical, Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert. The rock musical, with music written by Andrew Lloyd Webber, follows the last week of Jesus' life from Jerusalem to the crucifixion.
Since it's a pretty heavy role for the musician, we decided to take a look at the lighter side of Legend's personality when it comes to social media. His dry sense of humor and quick-wit game is strong. It has to be — he has to keep up with Teigen.
Here are some of his most hilarious tweets.
Legend reassures a fan that he won't mess up Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert by quoting from one of Lloyd Webber's songs.
Take a deep breath. Everything’s alright.— John Legend (@johnlegend) March 18, 2018
When Teigen came home to find one of their toilets missing, the internet immediately wondered what was happening in their household. It was up to Legend to save the day in a series of tweets about their commode.
We’re upgrading our regular toilet to one of those fancy Japanese ones that opens itself and washes your butt. Apparently our contractor decided there should be a toilet-less transition period.— John Legend (@johnlegend) January 25, 2018
We have other bathrooms!— John Legend (@johnlegend) January 25, 2018
He might be playing Jesus, but he's not ready for all the religious relics just yet.
I do not approve this message— John Legend (@johnlegend) March 25, 2018
Remember that disastrous flight to nowhere in December? Legend and Teigen were trying to fly to Tokyo, but after an unticketed passenger was discovered on the flight, the entire plane had to go back to Los Angeles. It was over eight hours in the air for nothing. It was a good thing the couple had a great sense of humor about it.
Free WiFi for everyone though! Except we all have to stand in line at Narita to claim our 19.99. Thanks ANA!!— John Legend (@johnlegend) December 27, 2017
Are u on here too?— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) December 27, 2017
Wait, did you know that 11 p.m. starts the 12th hour of the day? Thank goodness we have Legend to straighten us out.
Just realizing Brian Williams’s show The 11th hour is on during the 12th hour PM and feeling betrayed.— John Legend (@johnlegend) December 21, 2017
Yes but i just realized that 11pm - midnight is the 12th hour— John Legend (@johnlegend) December 21, 2017
Just when you think Teigen dropped the mic, her husband comes in with the final mic drop.
How are they gonna fit u in the manger— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) December 19, 2017
One of the many baby John Legends will be in the manger https://t.co/mc2IJfcLgm— John Legend (@johnlegend) December 19, 2017
Good thing Twitter is here to help Legend out.
Even though the West Coast apparently loves salad as a side dish for Thanksgiving, that's not up Legend's alley at all. He seems to be happier with the East Coast, Midwest and South eating cornbread, mac and cheese and green bean casserole.
I don’t even get what this means. What kind of salad is this?— John Legend (@johnlegend) November 22, 2017
When Apple had a software glitch, consumers discovered that a capital "I" turned into a question-mark symbol. It only took Twitter users to help him to fix the problem, but don't ever limit John Legend again, Apple.
I can say “I” again!— John Legend (@johnlegend) November 8, 2017
We all remember the Arthur tweets, don't we? It takes a strong man to admit he looks like the cute cartoon character.
I hadn't even heard of this Arthur character til now. Was he around when I was a kid?— John Legend (@johnlegend) February 21, 2017
When Kermit the Frog disses Teigen, it's Miss Piggy and Legend who create an alliance and discuss getting matching tattoos.
I think kermit just low key dissed me I love him even more now https://t.co/A79dpSb5QK— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 21, 2017
DM me, Piggy— John Legend (@johnlegend) September 22, 2017
When Teigen negotiated Legend's underwear, a Becca makeup palette and an autographed cookbook for six overripe bananas to bake into banana bread, it was Legend who stepped in to show his real-world priorities.
Yes and I approve. Can't make banana bread without brown bananas!— John Legend (@johnlegend) September 21, 2017
It's kind of hard to believe Legend watches low-budget commercials like the rest of us, but he does. When a famous TV-advertised law firm went through a breakup, Legend knew the infamous song and who won that battle.
It's no secret that Legend isn't a fan of the Trump administration. After a barrage of now-typical insulting tweets on President Trump's account, Legend chimed in on his own account with a snarky, but funny, comment about first lady Melania Trump's anti-bullying platform.
I see Melania's campaign to end cyber bullying is off to a slow start— John Legend (@johnlegend) June 29, 2017
There's nothing better than a GIF-off between Legend and comedian Neal Brennan. It's a very long thread that's worth falling down the rabbit hole over.
oh shit. Look at me grooving like a cool dad— John Legend (@johnlegend) March 26, 2017
it's couture. Hold the juicy.— John Legend (@johnlegend) March 26, 2017
Don't miss John Legend in Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert at 8/7c on Sunday on NBC.
