“I remember those days of getting to talk shit for money,” Teigen said. “It’s very fun.”
Chrissy Teigen has addressed Sharon Osbourne‘s recent criticism of John Legend‘s "Baby, It’s Cold Outside."
While speaking with Entertainment Tonight over the weekend, the model, 33, responded to "The Talk" host’s dislike of her husband’s woke rendition of the 1944 classic.
"Sharon’s always going to have something to say, it’s her job," Teigen said. "I remember those days of getting to talk shit for money. It’s very fun."
Last week, Osbourne slammed Legend’s updated version of "Baby, It’s Cold Outside." Legend’s rendition, which features Kelly Clarkson, includes the new lyrics "What will my friends think (I think they should rejoice)" and "If I have one more drink? (It’s your body, and your choice)."
The original version, written by Frank Loesser, has become problematic over the years with many calling it a "rapey" song that alludes to a not-exactly-consensual sexual encounter. Osbourne, on the other hand, praised the 1944 song and expressed that she finds Legend’s rendition "ridiculous."
"What would John Legend do, if in 40 years, if somebody wanted to… re-record one of his songs, and there was some group that found it offensive, and somebody just went, ‘Oh, I can change the lyrics on that,’" Osbourne said on "The Talk" last week. "It’s, to me, like a master painting."
"It’s a piece of art," she added of the classic version. "To change an innocent lyric, to what is it, ‘Your mind and your body?’ What the hell are you on? That’s ridiculous."
Legend’s lyrics actually have been tweaked in the past. For KIDZ BOP’s version of the Grammy winner’s hit "All of Me," they changed "Love your curves and all your edges" to "All your words and all your edges."
However, Teigen said she doesn’t have any problem with this.
"I mean, it makes sense," Teigen told ET. "I’m obviously down for a lyric change."
