Twitter CMO Leslie Berland hosted a live conversation at Cannes Lions Festival on Tuesday (June 18) with the “Mayor of Twitter,” Chrissy Teigen. The event celebrated female leaders and voices bringing the same spirit of discussion and connectivity of Twitter to real life.
About halfway through the discussion, the model played a game of word association, in which she sweetly connected the word “love” to her husband, John Legend. Teigen then revealed that the couple had been “fighting all day,” admitting that it was one of “those days where every little thing annoys you.”
Legend then surprised the crowd by joining his wife of almost six years on stage. “I stepped on her foot twice and I spoke without knowing my schedule and said I could go to an event with her but I couldn’t go to it once I looked at my schedule. I was wrong!” Legend admitted. After a bit of banter over pretending to be happy when they’re pissed off, the duo responded to questions on Twitter and by the audience.
“Have you ever been mad at me for something I said on Twitter?” Teigen asked Legend. “What’s the closest you’ve ever been?”
“She trolls me on Twitter sometimes, but I feel like it’s all in good fun,” the crooner replied. “I don’t get offended by it. She’s really funny and that’s why I love her.”
Teigen then responded to a question by April Reign, who asked if John has changed after achieving EGOT status. “There’s a bit of laziness for sure,” the model quickly replied, met by laughs from her husband. “It’s all in good fun now, there’s no more—nothing’s on the line. It’s like I’m not going to do this, I’m going to go on vacation.”
“He never changes, he’s always boring,” she jokingly concluded.
