The ballad “All of Me” is about… feet?

Related Artists: John Legend

“I feel like I just found out my favourite love song was written about a sandwich.”

Perhaps one of the greatest lines in chick-flick cinematic history, it’s a zinger from the unlucky-in-love Jane from 27 Dresses.

We all laughed when we heard the line in the movie. But did we have the same response when we learnt that John Legend’s 2013 hit All of Me is actually about feet?

You must be thinking: “Hang on. NO way. What?” But this has been confirmed by none other than Legend’s beautiful wife, Chrissy Teigen, who claimed the romantic ballad was indeed composed with her very own trotters in mind.

Let’s backtrack a little. Teigen recently appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote her new cookbook and let slip that she has “horrible feet” when she was interviewing with Ellen. She revealed that she had a “no feet” clause in her contract with Sports Illustrated, and said that Legend often joked that he could identify her dead body in a morgue just by looking at her feet.

The TV show host then took to the Twittersphere and posted her ‘discoveries’, to which Teigen then responded saying: “they’re what john meant by ‘curves and edges’”.

Hold UP. That beautiful chorus (extra points if you sing the lyrics in your head):

’Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfection

Is about ...feet?

It’s no secret that Chrissy is a Twitter queen with excellent online banter, so it isn’t 100% certain if the cheeky admission is true or false. Regardless, Twitter users had a ball with the dirty little lyrical secret, and the thread received much attention and likes, as well as plenty of laughs to go alongside it all.

It’s doubtful that this romantic number will be too tainted by this revelation, but it may linger at the back of your mind every time you listen to the song in the future.

It seems a love song about a sandwich is much better, huh?
