Go Get 'Em, John!
John Legend has mastered a lot in his 40 years. In September 2018, he become one of the youngest people to obtain EGOT status, which means he's won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award. He also made history as the first black man to receive this honour. His successful career aside, there's one thing he hasn't quite conquered yet: swimming. But at age 40, he's giving it another go.
"I can't really swim," John tweeted on Jan. 28. "Today I took my first swim lesson since I was like 5. My dad learned in his 60s so I feel like I'm ahead of schedule." He later wrote to a fan that his children, Luna and Miles, began lessons months ago. We're here for you, John, and so is the rest of social media. Read on for some hilarious and endearing reactions to John's swim lessons — because everyone, even an EGOT winner, needs some moral support when picking up the backstroke.
