John Legend Throws Down The Gauntlet To Justin Bieber In Battle Of The Butt

John Legend is the latest singing star to attempt to break the internet by baring his butt on social media. The internet went crazy earlier this week when Justin Bieber posted a picture of himself standing naked admiring the ocean and with his back to the camera. Now John Legend has followed suit after his wife Chrissy Teigen posted a cheeky picture of her husband on her Instagram account. As reported in Inquisitr, the snaps have generated a huge amount of fun on the internet as fans made up a series of hilarious memes.

While Bieber's cheeky snap showed him full length and butt naked Chrissy preserved a little of Legend's modesty with a well placed knee in the foreground of the shot. Chrissy obviously couldn't resist showing off 36-year-old Legends impressive physique while he was parading around the room naked. Chrissy, who has also shared some saucy shots of herself in the past, managed to capture John standing in front of a TV screen presumably fiddling with a remote control.

It seems that Chrissy may be attempting to enlist Legend's support for her battle against Instagram's for her right to bare her breasts on the social media platform. Last month Instagram removed a picture of Mrs. Legend in which she was exposed. Legend seems oblivious to it all as Teigen shared a picture of his butt with her 2.6 million followers.

Predictably the internet has reacted in amusing fashion, with various online outlets dubbing the baring of Legend and Bieber's rears as "the battle of the butts." Some are even running polls asking readers to vote on whether Legend's butt is better than Bieber's.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are currently in Paris, France, where last night they attended an 80th birthday bash for fashion house Lancome as part of Haute Couture Fashion Week in the French capital. Legend and Teigen looked every inch the fashion conscious celebrity couple when they joined the likes of Julia Roberts and Penelope Cruz at the Lancome party. It may just be that Bieber and Legend are starting a new fashion of celebrity butt shots.

Chrissy and John have had a very busy few days and are clearly enjoying spending quality time together. A few days ago the loved up couple showed up in Serena Williams' box at the Wimbledon tennis championship. Legend has also played a series of concerts in the UK for which he has won rave reviews.
