The inside spread showcases their sugary sweet lifestyle and their picture-perfect home with a photoshoot that could honestly be turned into a gorgeous coffee table book.

But don’t let the cuteness fool you because the interview is as savage and spicy as the couple are IRL and we’re bloody living for it.

The VF journos knew exactly which soft spots to poke at to get the juiciest goss, including rich and powerful men that they’ve traded Twitter barbs with lately, Donald Trump and Kanye West.

Speaking of the president, who recently called Legend a “boring” singer and Teigen his “filthy mouthed wife,” the pair believe he is simply threatened by powerful women and people of colour.

“We know this president has a particular aversion to strong women coming after him, particularly women of colour,” says Legend. “So he had to call her out. Every time he does something like this, he just makes himself look more terrible. I don’t know that that incrementally convinces anyone not to vote for him, but he just proves himself to be a shitty human being every day.

On the topic of impeachment, the pair believes that Trump and his family absolutely deserve to go to prison and here here, sis.

“I think there needs to be jail time for him, for the whole family,” says Teigen. “I feel like he still gets away with everything if he gets out of his office. I know that his first tweet after he’s impeached will be, ‘I didn’t want to be there anyway.’”

Next up, their friend Kim Kardashian’s visit to the White House was raised.

“It’s a cheap win for [Trump],” says Legend. “But the people being granted clemency are real people with families. So even if the clemency is won through his celebrity-whore tendencies, it’s still helpful for that family and that person. At the same time, he’s locking kids in cages and he’s a terrible human being….”

“To be able to go in there and put whatever you hate about him aside to do this greater good for this person?” says Teigen. “I don’t know if I could physically muster that smile and handshake.”

And as for Kim’s husband Kanye West, they seem to be on less than friendly terms with him.

“Kanye, if he’s for you, he’s a very ardent marketer and cheerleader,” says Legend.

 “I’m not trying to disown Kanye because I still love him and love everything we’ve done together creatively,” he says. “But we were never the closest of friends.”

In private texts that West later shared publicly, Legend seemed concerned about his friend’s loyalty to Trump.

“I think what was always challenging about it was Kanye has never been political,” he says. “I don’t think he knows one way or another what policies of Trump’s he likes. He just kind of embraced Trump’s blow-it-all-up spirit and the energy of himself being countercultural in supporting him.”

It’s one hot tamale so I suggest you have a read over at Vanity Fair.
