John Legend makes his major acting debut in the musical La La Land, and as one might expect, he’s singing, but he’s not playing the piano. Instead, his co-star Ryan Gosling is the piano virtuoso, and Legend says he was pretty jealous of his skills.

“He had a great coach, and by the time we were on set, he was already playing like a virtuoso. I was impressed; I was kinda jealous,” he joked.

Legend, of course, pulled out all the stops to prepare for his character, including learning to play the guitar and working with an acting coach.

“I got a coach and we worked really hard on it, and made sure every scene I was really prepared, and approached every scene with humility, knowing that I hadn’t done something like this before,” admitted Legend.

Now the film, also starring Emma Stone, is garnering tons of Oscar buzz, and the Academy Award-winner couldn’t be more excited.

“If the film won an Oscar, it would be the first for some of my cast mates and Damien. I’ve already got one,” he laughed.” No, I’m so proud already of this film and all the work we put in and really happy for people to see it.”

Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy

Published

Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.

If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage.  So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.

Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.

“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”

“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”

To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.

“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”

So do you agree Heavenly? Let us know in the comments below.
