Why do straight men go to fashion shows? John Legend gave us the unsurprising, yet somehow appalling, answer backstage at yesterday’s Max Azria show.
“Watching the models go by is cool,” he said. “You do your little ‘Would I do her?’ analysis. That’s the level of sophistication I have towards fashion. I’m not an expert. I just know what I think looks sexy.”
“I’m just analyzing that as the ladies walk by. It’s the combination of how they look and how they carry themselves in whatever they wear.” Doesn’t the lady in his life mind? “Well, I’m single right now, so there’s no one to get upset at me. It’s fun to be there with one of your boys. You’re just like, ‘Yeah, her, mmm hmmm. Yeah.’ And then after the show, you’re like, ‘Oh, yeah, the brunette with the blah blah blah. She was the one.’”
Got that, ladies? He’s single, and blondes need not apply. —Jada Yuan
