Legend performed La La Land's "City of Stars" and "Audition (The Fools Who Dream)" at the Oscars last night. "City of Stars," which is sung by Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in the film, later won the award for Best Original Song.
In case there was any confusion about Legend's performance, Teigen wants to make sure it's clear that her husband wasn't involved with the track's Oscar win, though he does act in the movie.
Legend is, indeed, an Oscar winner. He and Common won Best Original Song in 2015 for "Glory," from the Selma soundtrack. That in itself is a pretty noteworthy achievement, but Teigen is trolling him for not winning anything this year.
In two new Twitter videos, Teigen reminds her followers that Legend didn't win an Oscar this year. The first video features Teigen holding a water bottle, saying to the camera, "Hey guys, here joined by Oscar winner John Legend. Not this year." "Not this year," a sheepish-looking Legend adds.
In the second video, Teigen calls out to group of fans driving by Legend's car. As they scream excitedly at the sight of the couple, Teigen yells to them, "It's John Legend! He won an Oscar! Not this year, though." "Not this year," Legend agrees, waving to the fans.
