The expanded LP will include four new tracks, including a duet of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” with Kelly Clarkson with updated lyrics by Legend and comedian Natasha Rothwell (Insecure). The “reimagined” duet aims to modernize the song’s outdated and sometimes troubling lyrics, with the male suitor now graciously calling his female partner a cab: “I really can’t stay (Baby it’s cold outside)/I’ve gotta go away (I can call you a ride)/This evening has been (So glad that you dropped in)/So very nice (Time spent with you is paradise)/My mother will start to worry (I’

While appearing on Kelly Clarkson for Tuesday’s episode, the model discussed John Legend’s recent remake of the popular Christmas classic, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” — which happens to be a duet with host Kelly Clarkson.

The Voice coaches had updated the lyrics to stand in place of controversial sexist lines so that the song would be more appropriate for 2019. However, they received some intense backlash for the song, Clarkson telling Teigen that people are claiming they “ruined Christmas.”

John Legend Gets Grilled by Chrissy Teigen, Reveals If He Would've Married Her Without a Prenup

  John Legend Gets Grilled by Chrissy Teigen, Reveals If He Would've Married Her Without a Prenup John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are asking each other the hard questions. The 40-year-old singer and 33-year-old model each took turns taking a lie detector test, asking one another a few uncomfortable questions, in a video for Vanity Fair, including Teigen asking Legend if he would have married her without a prenup. The couple married in September 2013, and he was significantly wealthier than she was at the time."Um, I think prenups are a good thing to do," Legend said. "I actually wish I knew you were going to be so successful. I would've rewritten the prenup a little bit.

Joked Teigen, “You did ruin Christmas.”

“People got so mad,” Clarkson, 37, said, explaining, “He [Legend] had this idea — with the #MeToo movement they pulled ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ from any radio, like a lot of radio stations at Christmas.”

“Well I love that song,” she added. “And both John and I have actually cut ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ the original and we like the original. But we noticed that a lot of people didn’t, so we were just like, ‘Oh, let’s just give them another option,’ and apparently, we killed Christmas.”

  Sharon Osbourne Claps Back at Chrissy Teigen Over John Legend's 'Baby, It's Cold Outside' Remake There's drama brewing between the 'Talk' host and the supermodel.Earlier this month, Osbourne shared some harsh criticism of John Legend's decision to rerecord a new version of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" with Kelly Clarkson, rewritten with updated lyrics, during an episode of The Talk.

Teigen, 33, who has been well aware of the criticism (especially from Sharon Osborne), quipped, “Well then Sharon assumed you guys like burned them all in the backyard or something and that they can never listen to the original ever again.”

“If I can’t have my creepy song, it’s not Christmas,” she sarcastically added. “I want date-rapey songs.”

Following the song’s debut, Osbourne, 67, slammed Legend and Clarkson for remaking the song, saying that no one should be able to re-record a song just because they find something offensive about it.

“It’s, to me, like a master painting,” Osbourne explained. “You go and see these beautiful nudes in museums all over the world, they’re spectacular. Would it be right for me to go and draw a bikini top on one of those nudes? It’s still an art form, it’s a piece of art.”

“To change an innocent lyric, to what is it, ‘Your mind and your body?’ What the hell are you on? That’s ridiculous,” she added. “I have to tell you, I love John Legend. I love John Legend’s wife, his family. He’s an amazing artist that I really respect. Why do you do this? That’s not right.”

Clarkson addressed Osbourne’s comments on her show with Teigen, saying “honestly the original doesn’t even offend me, I was just like, ‘Cool, we’ll do another version.’ “

It’s hard to offend me. I wasn’t mad about the song, I don’t care what you guys do, but to be like ‘Ugh I hate this now.'”

“Oh my god, get over it,” the Bring the Funny star added. “Go off, Sharon.”

Chrissy Teigen Responds to Backlash Over John Legend's Sexiest Man Alive Title

  Chrissy Teigen Responds to Backlash Over John Legend's Sexiest Man Alive Title Whether it's Christmas songs or his sex symbol status, Chrissy Teigen is always ready to stand by her man."I cannot WAIT for people to get mad about John being the sexiest man alive. it's my new Starbucks holiday cup," Teigen tweeted. She was certainly right about that. Wendy Williams chimed in. "You know who I like and he’s not even the 'Sexiest Man Alive.' I normally don't like facial hair, but in a new life, I'm meeting a lot of new men. If I could think of one person it would be Jason Momoa," Wendy Williams said on her show.

“Baby It’s Cold Outside” was first penned by Frank Loesser (Guys and Dolls) in 1944 as a duet for him to sing with his wife at parties. It’s gone on to become an enduring holiday classic, sung by everyone from Dolly Parton and Rod Stewart to Michael Bublé and Idina Menzel.

Legend and Clarkson updated a number of lines in the song, which have often raised eyebrows with lines like, “Say, what’s in this drink?” and a back-and-forth where a man tries to persuade a woman to stay the night despite her continued protests — “I really can’t,” and “The answer is no.”

Last year, the song was taken off of some radio playlists after facing criticism.
