Our favourite crooner, John Legend, the man with a voice and heart of gold, recently shot an interview for MAKERS Men, an awesome new program run by the MAKERS organization. MAKERS, if you haven’t checked it out, is a video collection of some of the most inspiring stories told by some of the most inspiring women, and totally worth spending a few minutes with.
Legend spent some time chatting with MAKERS, resulting in a series of insightful and share-worthy videos that you can watch on the brand’s Facebook Page.
The “Love Me Now” singer even posted one of the shorter and more poignant clips to his Instagram account. Here’s the money quote:
Wow. Well said. It’s like when, as a child, you only behave well because you know Santa is watching–it’s not the right reason, and it won’t land you on the Nice list. Santa knows.
In the longer video interviews, Legend delves into his upbringing, touching on his maternal influences and how his mother put such an emphasis on education, the trials of his family life, how he cut his teeth on musical performance, as well as why he views feminism as such an important issue to stand behind.
This is just the latest effort Legend has made to support feminism. He and his wife Chrissy Teigen have long been recognized as leaders and visionaries in that world, and it’s no secret that she is the source of his inspiration and vice versa.
Funny there’s no dad-shaming. When both of us go out to dinner, shame both of us so Chrissy doesn’t have to take it all. We’ll split it.

Their Instagram feeds are #relationshipgoals incarnate.
But it’s best not to fall down that rabbit hole right now–too cute.
Seriously, if any young men in your life are looking for a role models, subtly (or, maybe, not so subtly) point them in Legend’s direction. Heck, maybe they’ll even end up snagging a cool and stunning life partner like he has.
