Chrissy Teigen has revealed she had a complete meltdown on the set of the song’s music video GREEN LIGHT, 10 years ago.
In celebration of the anniversary, Teigen took to Twitter to share a “fun fact,” about the video. She revealed she was so jealous of Legend’s video vixen that she had a melt-down. She revealed this was because the year before that,she met legend on set of his music video.
“Fun fact, I had a jealously-fueled meltdown visiting this video set and made an asshole out of myself to a large group of people,” “Oh you want to know more, do you? Let me try to remember. 10 years is a long time!”
After consulting with Legend, Teigen returned to Twitter with more meltdown details, writing,
“it began with our friends (john’s managers and co-writers and a couple others) talking about how BEAAAAAAUUUUTIFUL some of the women were…”
“…and they were! But in my mind they not only were talking about it, they were talking about it on purpose to rile me up,” Teigen continued. “Looking back and knowing how well I know them now, THEY WERE DEFINITELY RILING ME UP AND GETTING A KICK OUT OF IT. I was watching the monitor with all the guys and someone, I can’t remember who, said, ‘ooooooo look at that girl with john ooooooooo!’ so I watched the monitor like a psychotic (tarantula) hawk and in my mind, oh he was in trouble.”
A year earlier, Teigen had met Legend on the set of his “Stereo” music video
. “I was that girl!” Teigen told her Twitter followers. “I know how this s–t works!”
She then recalled,
“He probably laughed at something she said. And in my mind it was some GRAND conversation I was conjuring up. They were probably just talking about craft services honestly but in my mind she was like ‘hey we should bone’ and he was like ‘haha f–k yeah!’”
After a few more shoulder touches and laughs between Legend and his co-star, Teigen “lost it.”
“Anger turned to sobbing turned to fleeing the set and getting a hotel room. The director (ALAN FERGUSON!) was baffled. Everyone was,” she recalled. “Anyhow I wish more happened but no. I was just a jealous, angry 22 year old. I’m better now. BUT DONT TEST ME.”
