Kim Kardashian is understandably "still very shaken up" over being robbed at gunpoint earlier this month, but pal John Legend isn't letting it affect his own day-to-day life in the spotlight. 

"I don't think you should go through life thinking that the very worst thing can happen all the time," the singer told Sway Calloway on his Sway in the Morning show on SiriusXM. "That was an extremely rare kinda thing that isn't likely to happen very often in anyone's life, that's a one-in-a-billion situation, so you don't want to go through life expecting one-in-a-billion things to happen to you all the time." 

Legend and wife Chrissy Teigen are close friends with Kardashian and her husband, Kanye West. After the incident at Paris' No-Name Hotel, Teigen took to social media to fire back at trolls who found humor in the frightening situation. 

"Some s**t just isn't funny. I see you trying, but it isn't," she wrote on Twitter. "Fame is interesting. Celebs are supposed to love you guys while also knowing you'd make a meme of our dead bodies to get retweets."

Following the robbery, some have criticized Kardashian for her frequent use of social media and willingness to display her life and wealth to the masses on a daily basis. Others have accused the reality TV star of committing insurance fraud, a claim to which Kardashian responded with a federal lawsuit. 

"I don't buy that," Legend said simply, responding to the accusation.

"People were criticizing [her] security, this and that," he said, "but [if] five people with guns come up, I don't care. If you've got two or three security people, they've got to back up. You don't want to get in a gun fight. ... Just give them what they want and escape with your life.

"You can't go through life in fear all the time," he added. "And we try not to."

Though Legend was adamant that "you can't stop every situation from happening," he did admit to being wary of the immediacy of Snapchat -- a social media app that his wife has used frequently.

"I think we have to be careful of snapping and things like that, because people know exactly where you are," he said. "It's happening right at that moment where you are, and so you have to be a little bit careful."

Luckily for fans, however, it doesn't sound like this couple will be pulling back on sharing adorable Instagram photos of their beautiful daughter, Luna. In fact, Legend will even sing about her on his new album, Darkness and Light.

"I wrote a whole song dedicated to her called 'Right by You,'" he revealed, telling Calloway that "as a father, you'll relate. Mothers will relate. It's gonna be special."

But our favorite tidbit from the interview was the soundtrack of Luna's birth, revealing that the couple's baby girl came into this world to the sounds of Curtis Mayfield's "Superfly." Because of course she did.

"My daughter's name is Luna, which is the moon, which is literally the light in the darkness," he said, drawing parallels to the song's first lyrics: "Darkness and light with the moon shining bright."

Still, Legend says he didn't immediately realize the connection to his own aforementioned album title.

"It just all came together," he said. "I was like, 'Well, it was meant to be. That's the title.'"

Luna turns six months old on Friday and, just last month, Legend admitted to ET that he's finding it harder and harder to leave home for work now that he's a dad.

"I am tougher with my manager," he shared. "Every time they want me to take a trip somewhere I am like, 'Do I really need to go there?' I would rather be at home as much as I can, but obviously you have to travel sometimes for work, so we just try to make it work whenever I leave."
