The American Music Awards don't usually call for any sort of political commentary from presenters, but then again, the United States doesn't usually elect a racist, sexist, xenophobic monster to the highest position in the land. So when Chrissy Teigen introduced her husband, performer John Legend, at the 2016 AMAs Sunday night, her statements about the recent election did not seem out of place. But because some of her language was R-rated and therefore had to be bleeped out of the broadcast, you may not have heard them. So here they are, in full.
Teigen, model and mom to baby Luna Simone, said,
This next performer is a brilliant musician and a wonderful father who makes a pretty damn good breakfast sandwich and he has been known to write love songs about me.
She then added,
What can I say? I’m very inspiring, but his songs are bigger than either of us and on the heels of what’s been a really interesting, fucked up, fucking election for all of us, I think we could all use a little love tonight.
Well, she's certainly not wrong.
