John Legend enlisted wife Chrissy Teigen and Emmy-nominated actress Laverne Cox to star in his latest video "You & I (Nobody In The World). Watch the clip inside and see why Chrissy thinks social media ruins relationships. 

How do you follow-up the #1 worldwide smash "All Of Me"?  Well....John Legend has an answer.  He's enlisted his supermodel/tv host wife Chrissy Teigen and Laverne Cox, who made history earlier today as the first out Trangender actress to receive an Emmy nomination, to star in "You & I (Nobody In The World)."

Directed by Mishka Kornai, the video co-stars women of all races, ages, and sizes who replace their sad and stoic faces with smiles as they embrace their differences, flaws and all.  It's a moving visual as we watch a cancer patient remove her wig, a topless pregnant woman and Laverne wiping away her makeup.

Alongside the video, John has launched #OperationGirl Charity Challenge, a fundraising campaign for charities focused on women and girls.

Do you think social media is ruining relationships?

Definitely. It’s ruining relationships that are already in the shitter. I’ve never been in a new relationship during the Instagram era, but I could see myself getting jealous. I can’t imagine having to deal with that stuff.

What’s your favorite John Legend song?

It’s easier to say what my least favorite John Legend song is, honestly. I remember when he was shooting the video for “Green Light” and I was like, ‘This is horrible. This isn’t gonna go anywhere. I hate this song so much.’ There was nothing about it I liked. And then all of a sudden it’s all over the radio. It was his first big radio hit. And I was like, ‘Listen kid, this song’s going nowhere.’ Clearly I don’t know shit. So now I don’t really speak up as much.

What’s something you’ve tried but would never try again?

Eating a raw cashew nut out of the stem. I did it in Brazil and it was one of the biggest mistakes of my life. Online there are so many stories of people doing the same thing. You start to hallucinate. I scooped it out with a butter knife, and I ate it and within 10 minutes I was hallucinating. I was seeing purple blobs. Apparently in its raw form, it’s like eating a rare cactus. We were at dinner with people and my eyes started twitching and then my tongue got really slippery—that was the weirdest part—I lost control of my tongue and everyone is like, ‘So where are we going next?’ And I was like, ‘I gotta go.’ So we go home, and I lay on the ground and took all my clothes off and curled in a ball naked. And John was like, ‘What the fuck is going on?’ And I’m cackling laughing and throwing up all over the floor and between my legs while sitting on the toilet. So yeah, I would never do that again. Just Google: I ate a raw cashew nut. You’ll see.

If you could be anybody for a day, who would it be?

I would love to be a first daughter. I have a weird, crazy obsession with first daughters. I would love to know everything that happens behind the scenes. It’s such a cool world to me. I would be Malia or Sasha or Chelsea.
