John Legend married Chrissy Teigen on Saturday. Us Weekly reports that the singer and model, who got engaged in December 2011, tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at Italy's Lake Como.

Actress and model Brooklyn Decker reportedly served as Teigen's maid of honor at the celebration, which also featured Biz Markie as DJ and Kanye West among the guests. The couple have been dating since 2007, and Legend recently told Us Weekly that most of his latest album, Love in the Future, was written about Teigen. He said last month that he would be singing his new song "All Of Me" for his bride at the wedding.

Song Stories


Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
