In a recent chat, the Sports Illustrated model revealed her cookbook will include a few of her hubby’s recipes!
Here’s how the interview went down:
“Do you and John ever work on recipes together? Not really. The recipes that he’s great at and that he loves are, you know, his fried chicken and mac and cheese. Something fun about the book is we’ll have his take and then we’ll have my take. For example, everybody in his family and all of our friends love his mac and cheese, but I think they only love it because John Legend is cooking it, like, Oh my God! This is amazing! But it’s a little thick for me — I like a creamy mac. So I’m making my version, too.
So the book will have a special section, like his and hers? Yes, but of course everyone is still going to love his more.”
Well, in John’s friend’s case, who wouldn’t want a cooked meal from the legendary singer?! LOLz!
But we totally promise to be unbiased!! Can’t wait for the cookbook to come out so we can be the judges of this John vs. Chrissy: Mac & Cheese battle!
Mikael Backlund didn’t need to see the biggest goal of his NHL career go in. The crowd and the rest of the Calgary Flames told him he’d scored the winner. Backlund scored on a delayed penalty call in overtime, lifting the late-charging Flames over the Anaheim Ducks 4-3 on Tuesday night. ”I didn’t believe it went in at first, but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it’s just an unbelievable feeling.” Johnny Gaudreau scored with 19.5 seconds left in the third period to tie the game for the Flames, who had an apparent goal disallowed minutes earlier.
The Memphis Grizzlies welcomed Mike Conley Jr. back to the lineup and put the clamps on the Golden State Warriors’ high-octane offense at Oracle Arena on Tuesday.
With Conley on the floor, Game 2 was a far different story than Sunday’s Game 1 loss. He led Memphis with 22 points and helped the Grizzlies even up their Western Conference semifinals series at one game apiece in a 97-90 road victory.
Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports pointed out how rare it is for these Warriors to drop a game on their home court:
Wearing a protective facial mask and playing for the first time in 11 days after undergoing surgery on April 27, Conley’s expectations before Tuesday’s contest seemed rather modest.
”It was a little challenging,” said Conley of his first experience wearing the mask, per The Associated Press’ Josh Dubow (via Yahoo Sports). ”The first time going up and down can be a little tough on everybody. I’ll go out and do what I can do and see how my wind feels.”
Conley was tremendous, considering the circumstances, serving as the tone-setter to help swing the entire momentum of the series. The NBA on TNT noted his magnificent start:
NBA on ESPN showed another example of just how dominant Conley was:
And it’s not as though Conley petered out despite concerns of potential fatigue—he buried a dagger three-pointer among his numerous highlights to make the score 90-80 with two minutes and 13 seconds left in the fourth.
Bleacher Report’s Ric Bucher had an appropriate reaction to the Grizzlies’ glorious triumph:
All the magic the top-seeded Warriors were able to conjure up in front of their home fans all year seemed to dissipate due to Memphis’ gritty style.
In light of how capable Golden State has been at pulling off rallies, ESPN’s J.A. Adande weighed in on how the Warriors couldn’t quite get close enough down the stretch:
Lackluster shooting from beyond the arc, a facet of the game that’s often Golden State’s equalizer even when the team is playing bad, and sloppy ball security in the form of 20 turnovers doomed the home squad.
Fox Sports’ Jimmy Spencer alluded to the tactics Memphis deployed to stymie its favored adversary:
Warriors star Klay Thompson found himself locked down by Grizzlies guard Tony Allen, unable to complement Stephen Curry as a usually dynamic half of the “Splash Brothers” backcourt. Thompson had just 13 points on 6-of-15 shooting and coughed up five turnovers.
Curry led the Warriors with 19 points and added five rebounds and six assists but missed 12 of 19 field-goal attempts, and shot 2-of-11 from beyond the arc.
The following video from Bleacher Report’s Team Stream Now of an Allen steal perfectly summarizes what he did to Thompson for most of the evening:
Allen, who had four steals on the night, boasted about his area of expertise when he stepped into a passing lane in the fourth and broke away for a dunk, per the NBA:
RyenRussillo of ESPN felt the Warriors as a whole just weren’t themselves in Game 2:
ESPN.com’s Royce Young did well to analyze how the Grizzlies embrace their identity, which bodes well for the remainder of the series:
FedExForum is dubbed “The Grindhouse” for a reason. It’s because most opponents who walk into Memphis come away bruised, battered and defeated. The Grizzlies return home for Saturday’s Game 3 with a ton of momentum and suddenly have the look of the scary bully who could prevent Golden State from coming out of the West.
As well as the Warriors play in terms of teamwork, sharing the ball, spacing and execution, they hadn’t faced the physicality Memphis boasts in a playoff atmosphere at full strength until Tuesday. Now Golden State coach Steve Kerr has to figure out how his perimeter-oriented, finesse team can regain the edge.
The collective talent and depth the Warriors possess, along with how quickly Curry and Thompson can take over a game, give Golden State the faculties to steal a win away from home.
However, the advantage Memphis seems to have on defense and the edge with which the Grizzlies are playing definitely appear to be shaking up the Western Conference playoff picture.
A selloff in global sovereign bonds pushed Asian stocks to two-week lows on Wednesday as investors worried it might trigger profit-taking in other asset classes while the U.S. dollar stayed on the backfoot dogged by deficit concerns. As bond yields rose sharply from Germany to Australia in recent days, stock markets began to flounder. Market participants struggled to make sense of the simultaneous selloff in eurozone and U.S. debt markets and global equities, alongside the rise in commodities. "The current selloff in bonds appears to have been led by developments in the Eurozone markets," Ashish Agrawal, an emerging markets strategist at Credit Suisse in Singapore, said.

The Federal Trade Commission is investigating Apple’s efforts to set up deals with record labels as it prepares to launch its new music streaming service, a rebranded version of Beats Music, according to Bloomberg. This would make the FTC the third government body to look into the new music service after the U. S. Department of Justice and European Commission.
The FTC’s investigators, still in the early stages, of their inquiry, are asking whether Apple’s efforts will change the way music labels work with other streaming services, for example curtailing ad-supported music and pushing more songs into paid tiers of service at higher rates, according to one of the people.
A couple days ago, a report emerged that Apple was utilizing its power within the music industry to push record labels to stop licensing freemium tiers offered by Spotify and other music services. The Cupertino company also reportedly offered to pay YouTube’s licensing fee to Universal Music Group if the label stopped allowing its music on the website, which is a popular destination for music videos.
The FTC is speaking to multiple record labels about Apple’s practices. However, music-industry executives told Bloomberg that Apple has made no such demands. Similarly, the Department of Justice is also interviewing high-ranking music executives about Apple’s practices. The European Commission is doing the same, concerned that Apple will use its size to force record labels to stop supporting freemium music tiers.
Apple’s Beats-based music streaming service will reportedly launch in June at WWDC, though the company is still finalizing several streaming deals. It will reportedly be deeply integrated into iTunes for Mac and the stock music app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch while apps will also be available for Apple TV and Android, and Apple is aiming to offer exclusive content in the hopes of drawing people from other services. Last month, the company seeded iOS 8.4 beta to developers with a redesigned Music app featuring a new MiniPlayer, a redesigned look for “Now Playing”, and more.
The UFC Hall of Fame inducted its first class (Royce Gracie and Ken Shamrock) in 2003 and has somewhat sporadically brought in a total of 12 people since it began. The new system will provide more structure as well as more chances for non-fighters and fights themselves to be individually considered.
There are now four distinct categories for inclusion: modern-era fighters (those who debuted after Nov. 17, 2000), pioneer-era fighters (those who debuted before that date), contributors (those who “made significant contributions outside of active competition”) and a fight wing for “the greatest and most important bouts” in UFC history.
The 2000 date is significant because it was the date when the UFC adopted the current unified rules of mixed martial arts. Zuffa also purchased the UFC around this time.
The UFC will make the selections each year, with UFC President Dana White leading the panel.
Though there are no concrete plans for the brick-and-mortar location, it will be in Las Vegas, according to the report.
Inductees to date include:
Charles “Mask” Lewis Jr. (only non-fighter to be inducted to date)
“We’ve helped make Staten Island the safest community and the safest big city in all of America,” Donovan said while casting his ballot at P.S. 13. “If you look at my opponent’s record as a legislator, he raised people’s taxes. That’s something that I don’t want to do.”
“People are excited, and I’m excited, too. It really is, I think, going to be a great day,” said Gentile, who voted at his alma mater, Fort Hamilton High School in Brooklyn.
