3He and his wife Chrissy Teigen are expecting a 1st child together.
4Received and turned down offers from Harvard and Georgetown, when he was 16.
5On the TV show, Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. (2012), John found out some very interesting things about one of his ancestors. One of his ancestors was named Peyton Polly, who was born a slave in 1797. In 1847, he, his brother and son were set free by their master. Several years later, 7 of Peyton's other children were put up for auction and his brother Douglas Polly bought them. They moved from Kentucky (a slave state) to Ohio, where they could be free. In June of 1850, though, some men from Kentucky came into Ohio, knocked Peyton out and took the Polly children to Kentucky. Some of the children remained enslaved in Kentucky while others were enslaved in Virginia. Eight months after the kidnapping, Peyton went to the authorities and the case went to the Governor, who sent investigators into Kentucky and Virginia to get the Polly children. The children enslaved in Kentucky remained enslaved until the end of the Civil War, but the ones enslaved in Virginia were set free.After the show two of John's cousins (descendants of Peyton Polly) filed a court case to set the record straight. John's cousins found out that the reason why the Polly children were auctioned off was because of their master's debts, and his wife wanted him to get rid of them. His brother-in-law did not like this and forged a document saying that they were fugitive slaves. He tried to claim ownership of the family using the legal system in Ohio, but was denied, leading to the raid in June of 1850 on the Polly house.

Quotes

#Quote
1I am a feminist. Women are discriminated against in so many ways and they make up half the population.
2[on Frank Ocean] You talk to some people in this business and you get the sense that they're very focused on radio: what will be a hit or won't be a hit. You never get that from Frank. The focus is on creating something that's beautiful, that's great art...I think Frank's career will be defined by his fearlessness and his artistic freedom.
