The Brookings Institution think tank on Wednesday sought to clear up model Chrissy Teigen's confusion about British politics by explaining the premise of Brexit using songs by her husband, John Legend.


"Okay one of my goals for 2019 is to understand UK politics," Teigen wrote on Twitter. "I read and read and try and learn but my brain cannot grasp it."

Brookings chimed in a few hours later to explain the United Kingdom's vote to leave the European Union, dropping several titles of Legend's songs in the process. 

The think tank also included a link to a YouTube video titled "How Brexit will remake the United Kingdom."

Legend himself responded a short time later:

Teigen and Legend were married in 2013. The couple has regularly spoken out in opposition to President TrumpDonald John TrumpJoint Chiefs chairman denies report that US is planning to keep 1K troops in Syria Kansas Department of Transportation calls Trump 'delusional communist' on Twitter Trump has privately voiced skepticism about driverless cars: report MORE's policies and rhetoric since he took office.

The United Kingdom voted in a 2016 referendum to leave the European Union. The government has been beset with chaos and division in the time since as leaders negotiate how to go about leaving the organization.

British Prime Minister Theresa May this week postponed a vote on a Brexit deal reached with the European Union after it became clear the measure would have failed.
