If you ever catch yourself on the phone with the soul superstar, chances are this is how he'll appear on the other end! Tuesday, September 3rd was a huge day for John Legend. Not only did his new album Love in the Future drop that morning, but he also got his hands on the password to our official Instagram (@yahoomusic). He filled our feed with impromptu social snaps from his whirlwind press schedule that day, including a selfie he took shirtless - during a phone interview!

Just interviewed with @MariaMenounos at Extra's new location at Universal City Walk.

He began his Instagram takeover with a chipper shot of how he spent his Labor Day - over the grill whipping up some massive racks of barbecued ribs. The newlywed seems to have a domestic side and didn't mind showing off his cooking chops (oven mitts and all) to our followers. He moved on later on in the day to conduct his aforementioned interview sans shirt. Maria Menounos welcomed him later in the afternoon for a live taping of Extra at Universal City Walk.

In case you didn't catch John Legend's Instagram takeover as it was happening, we've assembled his snapshots for this exclusive photo slideshow. Check it out and be sure to follow Yahoo! Music on Instagram!
