'All Black Lives Matter'
"And also beyond black. Trans Women being excluded from the conversation. We've also seen trans men like Tony mcdade be excluded as well he was a trans man shot by police in Tallahassee last month, and some people have been fighting to have. His name honored at protests as well for people who don't get why he should be included. What what do you say to them? THEM WHY is it important that Tony's name be included if the Senate Trans, humanity and Trans lives right and I think the say people want answers from the Tallahassee Police on Tony. mcdaid on who they say was armed. They say was this who they say was that, but they're not really a lot of reports about what happened. It's only the what the police are saying. Happens. And then then a lot of people are also talking about. She's not a victim of police violence, but Nina pop who is them a most recent I'm Black Trans Woman. Who was stabbed? Then Roll Missouri in early. May so I think that the those that push. To include their names? Is Just Center Trans. People and Trans. Lives and black lives in this moment, and there was even a march the other day that Senate on stonewall where a group of activists did a march that was explicitly devoted to him. In the midst of the protests for George Void so i. think that's what that's about. What would a truly inclusive black lives matter movement? Look like to you. I! Think truly was the black lives. Matter would look like the movement that the three original founders had envisaged right, and we should say three founders you referencing. Are Patrisse cullors Alicia? Garza, and ultimately that's right. The irony is that two out of three of the founders of all living, and then two hundred or three. R LGBTQ and they when they started were deliberately creating a movement that was intersectional, and which is committed to fighting transphobia. It's actually one of their stated principles, but the problem. Is that because Blm? For sorts of reasons that makes sense. It's not a hierarchical organization. It's decentralized one through decentralisation that means that the local group of people who ever decide to pull themselves together and declare themselves the Ambi- Ellen RBM. and. That means that you can end up. Not Trying to end up. Hating the existing biographies as they exist, and so, that's what I think happened. I don't think that it's a straying of. I think that it's just a structural thing and and the decision to create a decentralized organization which means that those values that are held at the top. Don't fall down all the way to the bottom because it's not a top down organization, so it really do think that that's part of

The resonance of racial violence across generations
"President John. F Kennedy gave his nationally televised address civil rights. He said one hundred years of delay had passed since Abraham. Lincoln freed the slaves and that black Americans. Still we're not free. Confronted merrily with a moral issue. It is old as the scriptures, and it is clear the American constitution. That was fifty seven years ago this week. Generations have passed since and full equality has not been achieved this morning. We're GONNA bring together two generations in this fight for equal rights. lani bunches the secretary of the Smithsonian Story and the founding director of the national.

The symbolic painting of Sixteenth Street with the yellow pain of black lives matter. And I know it's symbolism. It was on the front page of the so many newspapers on Saturday. I'm curious. From a Hashtag and twenty thirteen to now majority of Americans multiracial coalition. Rallying around a symbol right now, what does this mean and how do you take this from symbol to policy? I think what this. Is that. Lives. Matter is not just a radical a year. And frankly when we look at. A lot of consensus in the consensus is that it is time.

Coronavirus conspiracy theories on the rise
"So the video is conspiracy theory as you know it's and the basic idea seems to be is that some shadow we elites are conspiring to use the pandemic to seize power maybe make money by creating vaccines and the star of this twenty six minute clip that went viral is this woman named Judy make of that too has become a kind of hero to the anti vaccine crowd she's a discredited scientist who published a book in April called plague of correction and that sort of depicts her as a truth teller fighting scientists who aren't willing to accept inconvenience facts and so far right publications began to promote her book in this documentary that is forthcoming will apparently be taking an even closer look at these sort of baseless conspiracies this video has since since it kind of blew up has been taken down but tell us about some of the crazy accusations and I mean one of the things that keeps popping up I think it was the main thing that really got to pull down was they were saying that wearing a mask will literally activate your own virus that's right and that is the thing that got it taken down platforms like YouTube and Facebook generally do not want to remove content from the network and they tried to enable a maximum of free speech but they do make an exception for stuff that is actively harmful and while a lot of this video plan that make is just kind of conspiracies saying don't forget a lot of people are making money and other people are going to become more powerful that's not what it got taken down I got taken down because as you say it warned people against wearing masks you know saying that it would re inspect them which of course there is no basis for that whatsoever but you can imagine if a lot of people watch it's that and believe that you could have a really negative a stacked on public health so initially Facebook did it want to remove it but when it sort of stumbled across that particular claim it said okay we've actually got to take this thing down any doctor Judy make if it's for herself she does have a degree in biology from the university of Virginia a PhD in molecular biology she worked on the national Cancer Institute she has a lot of things under her belt but then she started getting into work about chronic fatigue syndrome and vaccines and this is kind of where she was derailed a little bit a lot of people discredited a lot of the later things that she was researching so like in two thousand nine she had published research saying that a mouse retrovirus because chronic fatigue syndrome which got a lot of attention but it was discredited a couple years later and the journal ultimately retracted it and it in this sort of like a weird aside story she was actually put in jail on charges of staffed which apparently involves computers disappearing those charges were dropped but the whole thing was a scandal and she was kind of sidelined and lost her scientific career but after that she sort of drifted into this anti Bax crowd and because of the credentials that you mentioned the anti vaxxers have sort of lifted her up as this brave truth teller even though what she saying is largely nonsense so let's talk about how something like this goes viral the usual players come up obviously Facebook and you to have a huge part in this but there was a lot of Facebook groups that we're sharing this and then beyond that even as you mentioned there's a lot of mistruths in this video but it also takes time for their fact checkers to go through this so as you've mentioned they didn't take it down right away it kind of was circulating around for a while while they were trying to do some of that fact checking it's a really interesting story the way that things go viral on Facebook and you tube is always changing based on the things that the platforms due to try to stop bad stuff from happening and sort of like as soon as they fix one problem another emerges so over the past year Facebook has put a lot more attention on groups getting people to join groups kind of moving away from that news feed and there are a lot of conspiracy groups anti VAX groups where this video clip was very popular in what happened is people were sharing it in the group and what they were sure it was actually a link to you too and so from those Facebook groups they were able to send seven point one million views to one video within a period of between thirty six and forty eight hours so just within a short period of time Facebook drove all of that traffic to you too and so it was kind of an unwitting tag team between the two platforms that sent this thing viral as you noted it did take awhile for the platforms to fully understand what was in the video the video is twenty six minutes long it contains a lot of claims and they had to go through it sort of point by point and ultimately make the determination that it had to come down but it sort of speaks to this cliche this quote that is attributed to Mark Twain that the lie gets halfway around the world before the truth can put its shoes on and that was definitely the case here and it was also this whole thing with obvious all the algorithms and it's this big cycle she had just self published a book not too long ago and it became this thing where searches for her name brought up searches for the video and vice versa searches for them he would bring up searches for her name so it's kind of this big cycle where it's just feeding off of itself for a while until Facebook and YouTube took these things down and you know I think it's important to remember that Judy megabits has something to celebrate she has a book to sell into this whole viral events on Facebook and YouTube has been very good for her she had a number one best seller on Amazon over the weekend yesterday was still at number six so all of this is bound to be huge benefit to somebody who is selling this very day Alicia's ideas that just doesn't have any basis in

Google Shows off Its Work on Its Contact Tracing API
"Talked about this a couple of weeks ago. And there's been a lot of discussion around how Google is going to help in the Kobe. Nineteen kind of mess. The world is in by utilizing technology to help Contact tracing and there's a lot of speculation around if it would be something that voluntary or Out of House GonNa work While Google starting to show its work on on this on the contact tracing concept on android. Initially it's GonNa be leveraging play services which will be updated in the background automatically The first phase involves third party apps from public health agencies. That tap into androids newly integrated control. Said there's GonNa be system controls within the settings APP called quote Unquote Kobe. Nineteen exposure notifications. And you'll get the ability to turn it off and links the health the health agency APP on the device It lists the number of exposure checks that have taken place in the past fourteen days. There's an option to delete random. Id's and turn off exposure of Haitians. The future does not use device location which is fascinating. In fact APPS are prohibited from asking for location access however location settings do need to be on in order to detect nearby Bluetooth devices. Google's also released a sample APP release sample APP code to help to help. Health organizations develop their own APPs quickly. So what do we do? We think that this is going to be enough to help. Stem the the. You know the to have a positive impact on keeping people from being exposed or is this going to be. Is Google kind of saying? Hey we're doing everything. Han here Ohio. Hello exertions use it in your own apps and then just kind of washing their hands of it. I think I like what I see. I think I think they're doing it responsibly. In my opinion having it be a blue to sort of connection but per actively prohibiting the the health organization APP that is actually facilitating. You know this this sort of detection prohibiting them from having location access I think it was a long way or at least for a lot of people I think it will in Hopefully calming them down as far as like. Oh but this is tracking. A lot of people aren't going to really understand and know the difference in frankly. A lot of people also aren't GonNa care at all. They're just going to say anything. That's going to protect me from from catching this virus I'm all in whatever here. Take Take my take my permission as far as that's concerned But I I I trust Google in the sense and I think what they're showing with with this information and Definitely what we'll see in the coming weeks as the APPS start to be released and everything I think they're showing some pretty good faith As far as their intentions here which are to help out and they've already also said that this isn't going to last and after you know they're going to remove this after the the viruses thread is passed so I don't know I feel comfortable enough to use it. I'll definitely be checking it out but I also on an android show so maybe it makes me a used case than random people but do you think. Do you think it goes. I think that will work. Does it go far enough for or are they putting those limitations in that Alicia and will those limitations? Limit the effectiveness of it. Oh I don't know I think I mean honestly I think that remains to be seen right like Bluetooth as technology is a pretty near field can technology. If it was too wide then it would almost be unused Like not very useful in and of itself. Let's say if it was location data but somewhere in the range of two hundred fifty feet around you like it would be telling people you cross pass with somebody who had the virus way more that way when in essence. Maybe they didn't need to know. Maybe there was a very low chance that that person actually crossed direct paths. And then you know at the same time this person sneezing or whatever the situation would be that the transmission would happen so you don't WanNa make it too wide either and I think Bluetooth being such a near Field. Kind of communication method makes that better and also strips out the location tracking aspect so it kind of kills two birds one stone. Maybe that was a bad reference Term to use I know that you wrote about this a couple of weeks ago when this was kind of bubbling up. And you ask them questions in your article as far as what we have yet to find out about this. I feel like this kind of answers at least a little bit of what you were writing about. What do you think a little bit? I still have a lot of questions. I think it's a wonderful idea. I'm really glad Google and apple are working together and doing like you. I don't have any qualms or think anybody should realistically have any reservations based on everything. We're hearing it seems like they're approaching it thoughtfully responsibly. And making every taking every precaution possible to assure people at the same time well on a technical with the Bluetooth. I still wonder effectiveness wise. How is this? I mean? It really can't differentiate between say you passing somebody on the street. Who who's phone eventually may get flagged as having it very quickly. Both wearing masks no contact. Maybe like five feet away and somebody's standing over your shoulder without a mask and coughing for thirty seconds is there's no way it can really tell the difference so in that way it's hard to see maybe doing a little bit of either false positive false worry or or false security something you know just kind of giving you the wrong message but my bigger question is just how many people especially in the US are GonNa opt into this despite everything all the assurances everything. Google can say everything that can show about how it's working. It's just hard to imagine. Any massive number of Americans actively agreeing and going out of their way to opt into it both in in principle because they're going to have concerns and just out of kind of inertia and laziness and you know you have to do it and download the APP so without a lot of people signing up and actively participating assistant like. This can't work so I think that's my biggest question is. Is there any chance and of people especially in the US? We're going to do it for it to work with it being so optional so opt in so many steps. You have to take to make it happen. I guess we'll find out. Is there an on boarding process for this? That I'm just not seeing remain remains to be seen because the APPS themselves haven't been released yet so we don't know basically what Google and apple have done is they've said here's our baking this into the system that the API that allows for this. Here's some sample code so that those health organizations that are going to create the APPS that tap into our API so they have a general idea of what they can create and hopefully the sample code makes it easier for them. If they want to use it they don't it's up to them see Jr. I think you're right. I think the big question will be. How much awareness is around? You know people having the ability to install this APP really know what it's all about. There's got to be some sort of messaging campaign to motivate people to do this and it remains to be seen how effective that's going to be once we actually have. Apps to turn to so We will keep you posted. I'll be eager to watch where that goes from
Ask LISA: Can Robots Get the Coronavirus?
"Last question of the day this one from a leash t in Fort Wayne. Indiana Alicia riots dearly can robots get the corona virus. If so what? Are you doing to stay safe good question? Thanks for your concern. Alicia the short answer to your question is yes. Robots can get the corona virus. And that's why ever since the outbreak began. I've decided to stop going to the park to lick the benches not just for my own safety. But for the safety of the community at large Lisa just ever well. There's so much to unpack in that answer. So I guess I'll start by asking why you would like a park bench under any circumstances pandemic or no debra when this is all over. I'm sure we'll all start to really appreciate the things. We used to take for. Granted the warm embrace of a loving relative the home of the crowd at a major league baseball game the taste of an aluminum bench on a warm summer evening. The little things that give life its flavor. It's rusty metallic flavor Okay moving on Lisa. I'm no doctor and I would certainly hate to give you bad advice. But I'm pretty sure that robots cannot get corona virus. One really. Well Yeah I. I don't think so. I mean. The virus has to attach itself to cells in the body. Do you have so. No cells are for suckers and humans and plants and fungi right. So in that case. I think you're pretty safe. Saw Off to lick bench okay. But since computers do get computer viruses from time to time. I'm wondering if you have any experience with those kind of viruses I don't know we saw. Have you been running your virus scanning software? Yes tell me the truth. It's just I hate Dr Borg Lisa. We install Dr Borg to keep you healthy. There's nothing to be afraid of. Come on let's do a scan fine
Alicia Silverstone Talks Parenting
"I've heard that he's a super super kid as well. He's very chill. He's doesn't have too many tantrums. And also your way of parenting is is very kind as well. I'm always I have three boys and they're wild. They're also within three years of each other and I find that sometimes it's really hard to teach them not to kill each other without yelling at them. So you're not having three boys and three years. What are your some other some other tips tricks up? I mean I will definitely say I have no idea what it is to have more than one child. I have one child so I you know maybe if I had another one everything that I'm saying we go out the window but I don't think so because I think that while he's super chill in his soul like he's really he's such a good little guy so sweet and loving.

Choices or lack of protein is people would say when everyone's having too much protein. Our kids are having the right amount of protein protein for your body. So he's getting everything he needs. There's zero sign of any deficiency. You know he's really doing well but in terms of how I speak to him. You know we really communicate so well and yeah. There's never been a need for me to yell at him. I remember one time. We are the pool and this was a long time ago. I think it was that we are having friends over some kind of little party and he.

I mean I'm constantly being elbowed in the BOOB. You know need in the chest. I mean everything. I'm just abused by his body use. No me too but whatever it was he did something that made me have a gut reaction of like no and he goes to me and he I saw his face drop and he was just like mummy. You yelled at me. I said I yelled at you. Baby I don't think you know what a yell is because I hadn't even barely raise. My voice. Slept for a hand felt like a lot because he's not used to it. Yeah and he goes.

I just wanted you to understand it hurt and it was my reaction. I that's not a yell my love. I don't Yell at you yell at me practice yelling you want to hear what a yellow but so so.

I know you're so upset right but as a other than that like all I have to say to him is no thank you and he goes. Okay Mama and sometimes I have to repeat myself. You know like bear please. I asked you to do this. Can you do remember and he goes. Oh Yeah and they don't forget again on the way there he forgets because these eight. That's amazing but no it's really note.

"alicia" Discussed on Broken Record
"Ever. Ah For that phone call like I didn't just go. That was not a normal occurrence. If you can imagine even today you know a missing so much in even today. If he was still alive I was calling him. I was still so nervous about. Call him so understand like that. That part probably would just stay put but if you can imagine that it's the very first time I'm ever calling somebody who I admire on a level that site explainable and calling to see if maybe cool with me performing his after I heard time and time again that he turns everything so that was what I was up against as about eighteen. I think at the time maybe nineteen and I'm in some hotel room because we do at some little tore through these different hotels and For the presence of Anima Hotel calling on the phone and the person says hello a prince and like is this prince like no hold on a transfer me okay. So then. The next person picks hello. Hello not him either. Hey look at Princeton alike yes okay. Hold on a chance to me. How many times they get a chance to be at least four times and so every time the call is transferred. My nerves that more and more terrified and scary. He finally got on the phone. I hear his voice like it's him. It's his voice. I don't even know what to barely say anymore. Had some script written down but you know I start talking to him and he was super friendly and really encouraging and saying he heard what I've been working on and he knows that I'm writing and producing my stuff and he really loves that. Keep that up. And and that's when he invited me to Paisley Bar so I I I asked him if I could put it on the album and he said once you basin card in play it for me. I say okay. An addition. It's been tastic. That was that was nuts. I mean one of the craziest phone calls from my life and you go. How long after was along to take you to go to the park to play for. Wasn't that long after we were still trying to get it cleared and he kind of made. It seem like if I came in played. Maybe be more inclined so I'm pretty sure we went quickly. And he has a whole audience of like hardcore prince lovers in auditory analysts. Yes those freezing I mean. Wow it's so Kota there as winter Have my this little tiny leather jagged wearing everywhere. I don't know what was the matter me. Why did I might have another Jackie and And it was Super Friesen over there but it was incredible as the world all its own it was all his memorabilia and incredible moments that he's been a part of in contributed to culture two musical culture. Which is embodied all right there the doves and the purple and the piano and writing on it and outfits from Purple Rain and I mean. It was literally stunning. It was the most beautiful days I ever saw. And then you know him to have this kind of performance space for the die. Hards could come in just like the apartment. Hit Earl is nuts. He becomes a friend afterwards definitely he definitely became a mentor and a friends who checked in on me and would often comes in my shows. It often talk to me about the hard things you know as a performer As a as an artist whose whose music is starting to reach places in New People and what that was and on the on the business side ownership and being in control of what we create and also just you know even like sonically how it sounded at the show and he was very very specific. He didn't just come to light show in other candidates chilly he always came with an intention and purpose something to teach me and so even though every time. I spoke to him. I was terrified and trying not to cry because he told me. My sound didn't translate well in that show and I'd be like oh no. Does that mean it sounded you as a China? Tell me some bad. He wanted me to be aware that that are needed to improve. You know and and so that that way you like a big brother who would really tell you you know what was happening in a true way. A one one last thing I wanted to talk about was just performed. A Kobe's memorial service and Grammy's and bombers inauguration last year in this really interesting position very few art historian where you're you're like you're the kind of person we turn to Thinking who else has been that claimed that role in American music I would say maybe twenty years ago would also Simon and we're after nine eleven if played the boxer or any plane. That was the person whose music return to when we needed some kind of and Jordan civil rights it would have been Harry Belafonte. Probably Wow. That's that's the kind of urine net tradition. Now you're like the. I just wonder what that feels like you kind of responsibility that comes with that and you are you aware of that. And what is it opposite making you? I definitely Definitely know that as I've grown as I've become more comfortable in my skin and more truly who I am that I know that there is a deep connection that we share in that we have an. We've always had it but I don't think I was ready before to truly be comfortable with it to be Be completely just more so much more open and so much more able to share my truth. And what I'm learning what I'm experiencing and even my vulnerabilities and my pains in my fears my sinuses The humanness that lives in all of us at I for so long felt like I had to put into a box so that I could get on with each day and just get through all the demands and things like that and so now that I'm so much more clear about the fact that part of the beauty of us is all those sides that we spoke about. It's beginning this conversation. The scary the vulnerable the fear the anger all the parts that we kinda boxed up and put away is there too out of control or they're too personal or they feel too raw. I've become so much more comfortable with expressing incense since I have and since I had started to know myself more and be comfortable with all those parts of myself I find. That connection has deepened in a way that I never expected and I definitely wasn't ready for before because I wasn't even ready to do. That was my own self so now that that is happening. I do see how the connection is the point of what you're saying. There's something there that's creating. It's creating a a level of deeper understanding level of solid level. Love connection that creates something which just has been circumstantial because we're in a really tumultuous time and we need each other just more than ever and so I always wanted to be purposeful. Hours wanted to do things that have meaning to them and not just empty reasons and I have been getting these beautiful opportunities that even I have not known or meant to become what they did. I just was okay showing up and comfortable enough to show up in even through to all the scary things that I personally feel. You know all the time when I'm going to perform or when I'm going to put something on my back and walk out with it and hope that it all goes well. You know So I think the openness that I am experiencing is creating that kind of connection between us and I'm I don't know when it exactly started but I'm really loving it and I'm looking for more. There's something beautiful about the fact that like Biracial go from Manhattan. Plaza speaks all like. That's kind of. That's kind of amazing. I love morning. Thank you so much. This has been so much fun and best of luck with a good one and be safe and be careful and be good and hopefully down and have a meal and talk when big normal keys book more myself.

"Stuff that was just so many different sides Shove a ranks and you know different different MAG- Cobra. I remember all type of different Ray Lucia Bon ton and It was just a bunch of different styles of music that was happening and we were listening all of it. And you would you start. Your Girl Band did not know. That was an ambition. Alan were you in the band a while. I mean we really believe in that. We really wanted to take it all away. We had our rehearsals on time at the Peo- pal on one hundred twenty. Four street We would I mean it was a couple of years. I think that we were just meeting up in China. Make a word practicing and at school and working on what kind of music I was when I when I was that bad when that age. Are you making something similar to the kind of music you made? Today was yeah. It was mostly like we would sing our favorite songs. We were working on arrangements to the song that we love so that if we ever had the opportunity to sing for anybody we will be ready to perform. But didn't you write you a note of it? Didn't you write a song called on all done? Was that you mentioned that in your book. I'm all alone is the first alone and that actually was triggered by the death of my grandfather and that happened that about Twelve I think I was about twelve at that time and that was I wasn't really in the group at that time I mean it was a little groups that I was at that time but but when I wrote that song the significance that was just it was the first time a inexperience was painful. Enough to really you know. Provoke me to take all this information that I had with piano and with music and you know sit down and create a thing and it was the very first time did that. Did you continue to write all the way from that point forward? Will you continue to write music all the time or is this something that you left foreign came back to like is the second one CY started? I really I. I recognize that it was something I could do. And also recognize. It felt really good to just sit down and say what you feel. I remember one of the one of the one of my dearest sisters Was A who was also in the group with me. She and I she started playing Bass and piano and she and I would get together a lot and just kind of jam right. And if my mother wasn't home she was at work late most of the time and so she would. My friend comes to my house and have her bass and piano. We were listening to a ton of a. Marvin was going on out. Men and the song that we listened so much to his flying high in the sky which to me is one of the most unbelievable compositions ever because you hear this base and it constantly walks up and this relentless jazz Z. you know stupor that he's describing how he's feeling being high and it's so it's so painful and beautiful at the same time and And that was something that we were really fascinated with him because she was starting to learn the bass we would play like these type of energies informs and and I think that's really good for both of us to just be holed up inside in. Oh playing music which is why you know music. Save so many lives. What's the first song you wrote? You think we should. I truly great mature Stom- like a song. You're you would happily play a concert. The very first on the song I consider my first good song is is a song called butterflies and that when I wrote when I was fourteen and I would play it today. I'd say right now It's really sweet but beautiful and surprised at the surprisingly mature for fourteen in a way that it. It kind of seems time is. It doesn't feel like Oh. Yeah you could tell young when I wrote that you can as you can see how. Masan developed over time and became more intricate. But but you don't pay attention to that. It just feels like a sweet song. You know what I'm going to ask you right now. Don't you guys? Because I don't have piano. You could just like singlet to see lines acapella. Can you know might be described your version with us all right Let's see so versus lately when I look I really Y'All the only one I need mnay. They don't know how to describe how low they may be. El In how you give me love.

And kinda crazy and loud mouth and you know God was extra tough and all the stuff that you think as a kid exactly. It's irrelevant because you had your whole timeline. As an artist is sped up. So what happened you at nineteen is what usually happens to singers at twenty five or in people. I think. Forget if you grew up in New York trick you grew up in New York.

Tubby about Manhattan Plaza. I was I Been York for twenty years. I walked by Nat and Plaza Million Times. I had no idea for small ideas if that's where he grew up. But I know any kind of world unto itself of all of these creative types from Broadway and so just described as Manhattan Plaza for those who don't own New York so Manhattan. Plaza is like a once in a lifetime creation Basically it was built to support artists and creatives in that area. Because it's on forty second street between nine hundred ten and two twin towers and One is on Tenth Avenue. One is on night avenue and it was an experiment that the city did at a certain point to try to create a affordable living space for people who were creatives. Obviously this New York City is all about creative people and at industry in the entertainment industry and so what they did was they created a system that you would pay only a portion of what you made that much. So you know as we know. Artists have fluctuating. Incomes is not always a check every week. You know you don't have a retirement plan It's very very unstable and sometimes you work in a lot. Essentially were not at all and so depending on whatever was happening that month you pay a portion of what you need and I remember. My mother told me that her per her rent was about seventy five dollars. So at was you know at that beginning time and and and so what they created was a really special place that also had like a playground for kids so in between the buildings there were these special things and so in a lot of ways you could live in that building and kind of how it was its own world unto itself and everybody who was in that building knew each other and all the kids kind of play together and you know. Sometimes you know you even even me discovering who lived in that building. I'm like wow turns. Howard Larry David Jackson. You didn't see him back into San Sam Jackson. But I wouldn't remembered if you had. I couldn't been so young that you know it just doesn't on you like that. You know but I would have known if I if I saw him but you know he was also in that building for a time. Now it's it's it's an only in New York kind of thing. I don't exist anywhere else. They're seriously but it's punk a middle of Times Square in the eighties. Nineties and Times Square needs and nineties is dot the world's most pleasant place. Were you aware of that? Fact that it was sort of the world outside Manhattan Plaza was a little scary or did you just not did that. Not registered you when you were a kid and I knew very clearly if you go to school in order to come back to school in order to you know if there was any activity that I was doing. My mother was big on that. My mother's a single mother in a real means city with daughter and so she was definitely focused on making sure that I have places to go and places to be is she knew if I didn't then I would. I would find places to go places be so Every time I walked out on the street even one of my earliest recollections early in the book That I love a lot is the first time that I asked her. I asked her. Who were the women on the streets? Who in the winter barely had any clothes on and she you know probably struggle with trying to answer that question for whatever? I was six year old or whatever that was. So you know a lot of that. A lot of that energy of Hell's kitchen which literally was as it sounds. That name was perfect. For how it looked and sounded and how it was and and so. I was very familiar with the life outside of that which was full of a lot of a lot of IMF prostitutes a lot of X. rated stores and theaters A lot of heroin addicts drug addicts It was definitely full of the New York scene. So sounds very aware of what that was and I think it actually informed my A lot of my character annual and I noticed as I reflect back that I've always been very you know My exterior has always had to be well in place and that is a lot because of you know those she said I grew up for you. Sound like you had a pretty while at my right. I was reading like how while was Alesia when she was in when she was a teenager. I what I wanted was your I wanted. You want your mom to weigh in and say the real story what was going on your fifteen years old. I definitely I was definitely. I just knew I knew it. All by all fifteen year olds. Do I just a new. I was grown too because I I had to be very Independent from a very young age. You know my mother needed me to be able to get around the city. Schnider be able to get to where I was going gets to school. If I had a piano class or a dance class I need to get there. I need to give back home. You know and and so I was definitely always on the streets and I was always able to kind meet up with my friends or go our wanting to go in essence. She was definitely on me for sure. She was wild so you did not want to upset that women to this day. You don't want to upset. That woman is really just so much more. What in this necessary that you just like. Let's just get it right cleese. So she and she you know. Hey I'm not even mad at her she has. She had to be an and I know when I have to go in on my kids like that too because they have to understand how serious it is that they would never know when. You're young. Mind what I know. I understand why she had you know I do. She had to make a point and I had listened and she didn't have a dad. Sit Down and Sally. She's put the bass voice on it wasn't like that you know what I mean so I understand but but she so I was definitely i. I think I was. I was very smart. I really knew.

"Alicia keys started her career as a soulful piano plane. Singer-songwriter a lot like a young Carole King but in the twenty percents we've seen him grow into one of the world's biggest pop stars and like the Kobe Memorial. Recently someone the country turns to when we need a unified voice. Yeah frayed weeding unleashes. Newly released memoir more myself. You understand right away how someone so young cares so much. Wisdom raised by a loving single mother in the middle of New York City in the eighties and nineties. She was bound to groped smart and grow up fast. Or maybe not make it at all. The leashes spoke with Malcolm Gladwin by zoom recently about her childhood navigating the dangerous city but writing her book and had informed her new music and share some astonishing stories about some of the amazing people. She's crossed paths with over her career. This is broken record. Land notes for the Digital Age. I'm judgment here's Malcolm glad. Well with Alicia keys. You wrote this book at the same time that you were doing your latest album. You know I mean. I started to write the book before the latest album for shore but they definitely have synergies and a and a bill that they're companion pieces they belong together. Was it strange to work on a book at the same time as music or the same process view? Well no it's not the same process at all is totally foreign completely brand new Much much more indepth than depth. You know obviously the book writing process and the length of time that it takes much longer and much more patients required to really follow through with everything and find the through lines and really be clear about the intention and the meaning that you know at it makes sense the whole way through it at a really brings you there but emotionally. I think it was similar in the sense of you know just having with music you also do have to find the truth in what you're trying to convey and you just doing it in a much more concise way which can also be harder because you don't have the length to deeply explained what you're truly trying to say so and in those ways they both have their challenges but obviously music is more like a second skin for me than book. Writing so in that way was totally different. I think what was good about both? According to music and writing this book at similar times is that I was asking myself to similar questions and and the question that I was asking myself and I was understanding more than ever before. Was this question about identity and who actually am I who who of WHO I am? Coup is web been told me and who is who I'm actually and that became a theme. That was both. I was deeply able to search through the book writing process from looking from very beginning stages to now and then I was also able to search from this music. Sonic lyrical process. I think it was. It was really cool for that because although the same question it was two different expressions of the question so that made it cool. You tell a story about house was killed you and says how community talk about the Italian which I love because we always have to pick a side right I. I have to say that I've always been fortunate because I grew up in New York City heart of the city right. They're melting pot for real. It was never a moment that I wasn't seeing people of all kinds of descents in all kinds of beliefs and religions places and styles and energies. And that really made a difference for me I didn't feel like I had to pick a side because I I think I think if I grew up in a smaller town or I don't know I think it was just circumstance and you know just how much particular childhood was I never felt like that. I definitely felt understood. They were different sides but it had to pick one you know but I also didn't realize what his question when he asked when he said that it was. I was very defensive. A week talking about everybody knows that and the more people that I started some counter. That actually didn't know that Him Right and And and I guess so in regards to picking sides maybe we I pick the side in in a way. I didn't think I was picking aside. I didn't feel like I needed to pick aside. I didn't realize Oh speaking aside but I think in some ways perhaps I did so. That was what we really interesting about it. It it just Kinda put myself. He threw me in front of the mirror and I was like L. Maybe so so good about people who who love you and who you love like how they can provoke you to think about things that she would never. There wouldn't have been a reason to think about when he has to that we used to that. Was that the beginning of the process of the new who you already immersed in it. When he said that too I was already writing it. I think that it really gave it a perspective that I did not have prior and I started to really think about it turned it. It Ain't me the questioning of myself to not only think about race sort of think about religion or to think about color but the let's go even deeper and think about emotions because for me. That's my biggest trouble. I find my biggest challenge on my biggest lesson on my biggest opportunity. Or whatever you WANNA call it. Is I find that I. It's been very difficult for me to access my emotions and so I've finally Come to a place where I can acknowledge the myriad of emotions that make us all up who we are and you know because the world is sold drugs and you know we kind of have been taught to be in control of our everything. You know that We don't Granada encouraged to kind of see these darker or deeper or bluer or scarier or more vulnerable parts. That are inside of us. That are really a healthy part of why you are who you are. But if you don't know that side how can you really know yourself? And so that's that bats is starting to send me now that Roco and away. I went back to what it meant to grow up in the eighties and nineties in New York Before I get there I want to touch on this question of racial identity again. You make that comment about your mom. That she's a black woman. You'd never know so. It's almost as if like so you have a white mother and black father. You have kind of black white. Mother and father is that fair. That's what you're saying. Yeah I mean she totally is I mean if you when you meet my mother or when you have spent time with my mother you can definitely no she. She has a certain spirit and she has a certain energy that at definitely you know anybody who says she is. One of the black is white people that you have you ever met. And she's definitely you know we've always had such a really diverse interesting group of on tees and friends and and you know Her colleagues friends and my friends and insisted friends. And all the people that I've been able to attract and just have been a part of my life that have really created a against a really robust dynamic experience in regards to what people look like where people believe feel dance like you know live the whole thing and so it definitely Colorful picture for me and I'm really take back. What was your mom saying if your mom was on this call and I said to. Her daughter describes you as the bucks woman. What was she like you right? I think with that. So what's your panel picture of growing up with your mom in Manhattan Plaza on what your mother is very is really into music. World you up with his intensity musical what she play. You're you're seven years old johm playing I mean if I can remember correctly. She's plan Bobby Caldwell she's playing John Coltrane. He's playing Ella Fitzgerald. She's playing Marvin Gaye. She's playing. Roberta flack's is playing aretha Franklin. She's planning Simone. She's playing. You know all these really epic stevie wonder she's playing all the greatest are coming through those speakers. And all those Those record players because that's what it was record player and get all the albums on all the shell and it was just a sound chap was so beautiful men and you saying that you from the age of four. You knew you were going to be a singer. I mean by at the age of four is when I fell in love. I was bitten in Smithson. I think that that's when I really fell in love with The possibility because My my my little sweet teacher at the time as Hazel who was Kinda been than the music teacher at at my kindergarten. She always so passionate and and so lively and she always wants to expose us to different sounds in places in performances A little south. We're always going somewhere and saying some little song somewhere But she she also did these plays and those plays were the first opportunity that I had. Which kind of trying out to sing in front of people and it was so scary and I was so so terrified which you know it's so terrifying thing in front of you but you know much less for two we don't know as much easier but benefit the you know is super terrifying and but I tried and I saying who's in the wizard of Oz and I sang somewhere over the rainbow and I'd learn it and learn all whereas learn the melodies.

Both my own and ours collectively for so long. Been Cautious about showing all of WHO I am. I've been much more likely to reveal the zinn com rationally. Shah then to ever show the crazy freaked out seeing red yelling and screaming. Alicia the one who doesn't have it all together. I am strong and fierce and brave. No doubt yet I am also someone who's found myself on the bathroom floor boohooing and feeling vulnerable. I'm also the woman who doesn't always know how to rise to my feet and take the next step this album. This life is about accepting all those parts of myself those dichotomies. Oh my gosh and yes. The next body of music that is called Alicia is definitely a beautiful companion. So this book more myself. It's like almost like more myself has brought us up to date to where we all are currently right now and where I am right now and then a leash show the music is GonNa take us to the next place and it's true it is thought of who are we in. What makes you who you are? Not just what you've been told or what you may be have been shown so you assume that's what you're supposed to emulate but the truth is inside of you and how do you find that.

Just when I thought I found my mallets Tampa the minute. I thought I had my balance together but nonetheless. Obviously is is an imperative time. It's a challenging time.

"Actually they got sued by Bobby Brown. Oh and the estate of Bobbi Kristina Brown because they used footage of the reality series being Bobby Brown and they were saying that they didn't have permission to do that. Okay documentaries have weird laws. You don't have to get the rights for music if like. You're filming someone in real life on the street and like the Bodega behind. It is playing Michael Jackson. You're fine really yes. There's all these weird loopholes so I wonder like when it comes to showing trademarked footage and stuff. They have some kind of leeway. I don't know okay you said what do they call it? The sophomore curse off or slump goes off more slums okay. She talked about mother daughter relationships being a hard yeah and I was looking up why that is and there are like a lot of articles and a lot of delving into that question which I thought was interesting because it is real. Oh Yeah so real. But I think it's the same for fathers and sons. Both same sex parent child relationships are are wrought with potential because for guys there's like this weird Alpha tension but who's going to be the leader of this family. When is the sun old enough to not be told what to do? It sounds different when his dad's toll not to do something it sounds like a challenge his manhood Schiller. There's all this weird Tana me stuff that you need to get from dad more than day. One thing that people were saying which I thought was interesting was that women's rights are changing so rapidly that from generation to generation. They're really different. Oh Yeah uh-huh so girls aren't just GonNa follow in line with what their Mother did or what their grandmother did. Because things are changing so I might reject the lifestyle. The MOM has exact moment feel judged by that I think that my and her mom. Yeah some articles I saw. Were crediting that as being an issue which I think really makes a lot of sense. Yeah it's weird and I'll be able to relate to this but I do think in some ways like some dads have built some steady great business that they work their ass off for right. Let's say they've got like a family roofing company and got some employees and some trucks in the tools. And then you got this son and you want to hand over this thing you work so hard to your son and then you find out. Your son wants to play guitar in bars. Yeah seems so high risk in your scared for the sun you did all this really for the Sun. Yes to hand over something turn key and they don't want it feels like A. Don't appreciate this thing I built for you and then be you're scaring me by this other. Choi's E at's all complicated. I could imagine the. Let's I know nothing about Elisa's mother. I don't know if they have any issues whatsoever but let's just say I can imagine if you're a leashes mother who was raised in Toledo Ohio. Her Dad did not want her to go pursue acting. She moved to New York. She did it on our own and now she has daughter and now she gives her daughter the childhood she wanted. Which is the yes. Let's put a piano in the middle of this one bedroom apartment. Let's dedicate your life to this and I'm going to support this crazy and then your daughter gets this thing that you may be wanted and you're going oh of I had this. I would be her so I think that's complicated. And then you I WANNA have some ownership over that so you feel a part of it like this is a result of all this nurturing. I did and then as the child. You're like no no. I wrote these songs. I practiced I at least I have no idea what the relationship is. But that's certainly a dynamic. That's ripe for some challenges for sure. I think the Times that I got grumpiest set. My Dad is when like he would casually kind of mentioned in a way that I at least I interpreted as Im- saying I got my sense of humor from him or like taking some kind of credit. Yeah that was always really triggering to me or he'd say like I'm the one who quit a steady job and started businesses over and over again. I'm the risk taker. And you got that for me And as an adult you are. You didn't like that. They I do take you left at three and you don't get to claim any of this morning around. Yeah but a a bigger me should've included him in this experience. I'm sure that does have a lot to do with the fact that he left. Because I don't have any of that like with your dad or my mom as far as like taking credit. Also they don't like they don't ever say like Oh you got that. I think they are more like. Where did you get from fat? But every now and then in normally it's the other person like my mom will be like. Oh you got that from your dad for some reason. I I like it more and I think maybe part of it which is deeper is in a weird way. They're giving their spouse a compliment. You get your disciplined from him. I hear that as Oh you think. He has a lot of discipline. Yeah Yeah I like when they give each other complex. That is nice. They have to do it via this other channel. Will the inescapable truth is? Yeah you got everything from both of them and I got everything from the cold hard facts of reproduction. I got all of my jeans from those two people. The cultural layer I do think is large. Yeah Yeah if you have a chip on your shoulder like I have had a lot of times in my life. You hear everything as taking credit away from you. Yeah I mean I have that but I don't have it with them. I don't know why but I do have it with everybody else I'd I. I need a lot of credit. Or even I triggered yesterday on accident by saying you don't need me anymore. Yeah you were talking about the show. Doing yeah which. I'm so proud of and happy for this it. You don't need me anymore. But that didn't feel to me that wasn't you taking away credit. You're giving me credit. Yeah but somehow he didn't like I didn't land how I wanted it to well. I guess implied in it is. You needed me at one point. Which is now what I was ever suggesting. And I don't think that's what bothered me. I think what scared me is? The idea of things are separate or that. I'm saying in some capacity that now I can go my own way and you can go your baby like this is your show and that's my show. I don't feel that at all. I feel that this is our show. That's our show. I especially feel that this is our show up or shook cared about the idea that like. It's all separate or something right but I didn't intend any of you know I was just saying you're a media mogul now and I was proud of you. I don't know if people if people are keeping up. I had a very big challenge assigned to me last week and I have completed it. You all my God win yesterday while you were talking to me now. Yes love to wait for the two way for Wednesday. We'll burn proud of you for accomplishing that chance. They know you weren't looking forward to it. Yeah the challenge was ahead to have phone sex. Yeah and I was very scared. Yeah was WHO's inexperienced memorable? It was. Yeah it was memorable yeah it'll be inextricably linked to corona too which is a period of your life. You'll remember anyway. Yeah I got. It's true actually. I was thinking that recently we have a guest coming up a week from today. Who talks about basically having like this like visceral memory of a period of time in his life? That was like. Kinda hard he talks about like in a comedy club and he can like remember the smell and like walk stairs he has this like really deep memory of it and I was thinking about it after and I think the memories where you're most vulnerable are more etched in. Oh sure yeah yeah like those repeat your body can repeat more Qazir like more open to worlds and then it gets etched agree. So we're vulnerable right now to corona things that are happening now. Yeah are gonNA feel pretty visceral. I think some people commented on our debate and they. They liked both of us about whether I should talk about being happy during yeah and so one aspect unite neglected to think of which I thought was a really cool. One first and foremost people were like they saw your intention and loved it and then one person wrote like what pisses me off is the celebrities complaining about quarantine when they're in a big fancy house and they have a ton of food. Yeah and all the Shit and they're not panic. That's what's annoying. Is someone acting like they got it tough when I know they don't have it and we I hadn't even thought of that aspect when we are talking about it and I was like? Oh yeah people are smart enough to go like who you kidding. L. For sure but I think in different ways right like that feels like a lie or fraudulent or I think some of these celebrities are sincere. I think they're they may also might be going through a hard to say. The outdoor people community people on there are unhappy. Yeah but that's what's a little tone deaf for sure. I personally think all of that is absolutely true. Someone's walking around complaining when they have it far far far better than most people. That's a problem. I would never ask you to complain and I at the same time would say maybe don't strut how fantastic everything is going like more of a middle ground. Yeah Again Fuck. The the money factor. Which of course is huge but the real advantage. I have over most people. I'm with a ton of people. Yeah containing with you Kristen weekly on two kids. Which is its own misery at times but by and large. I'm not Longley definitely. There's no loneliness happening now in our in our house if anything is just like everyone wants a little space usually but anyway that's probably one element that's making me enjoy it more money related percent. That's very true. Okay so you said their studies in data that employers respect employees with boundaries. And there's a podcast and I didn't know what podcast human I kind of assume maybe referring to Adam Grant. Oh I know exactly what it was talking about it. It's from that and that everyone really loved about setting boundaries essential ISM ESSENTIAL ISM guy words from. I see okay. Sorry Adam grant not you this time although I do feel like Adam grant would say something like that. He said I was looking into him to see if he said this. And he does describe two types of people he says people who liked to blend work and life are called integrators and in contrast segment like to keep their work personal life separate. Well you and I are the ultimate integrators friction. We ever have is like transitioning from the two for sure but he said in general segment hers so not US Yeah report better wellbeing than integrators. I know why because you're never turned off like you're never present for either probably but I think in this case it's more like your emails open twenty four seven you're always available to that world. I think he would probably consider himself. An integrator yes I mean. It seems with his rapidity in response. Time exactly okay. You said Hell's kitchen is the most densely populated city in America. I just met Manhattan. But yes continue. Okay Gutenberg New Jersey. Oh is the most densely populated incorporated place in the United States. Wow Hell's kitchen is also known as Clinton after George or bill. I'm GONNA guess neither. Oh no there was a fact. I didn't look up. Hold on but I can do it right now. You said you could be right about this. Thirteen fourteen fifteen. Yeah fifteen okay. She's fifteen grammys. And you said. She has more grammys than teeth in her mouth. Oh I guess we would have to know how many has in her mouth but presumably more than fifteen twenty six or something. I don't know just trying to count my teeth. We're GONNA be twenty six thirteen on top thirteen. That means you have an extra two thousand one side so it's gotTa be like Twenty Four Twenty eight or here's my beauty okay. I'm just going to count one side.

They have in both of them together. Unbelievable for real. I mean once about greater than some of their parts and each of their individual parts are humongous. I think one of the funniest human beings working in television or film well tell and forte is obviously genius. Genius it's so good I just love it. And so if for people who don't know what Qube is. Quincy is a brand new streaming platform and delivers movie quality episodes in ten minutes or less. So it's really kind of designed for people to watch on their phone. Which initially I was like I really making content for phone specifically but the stuff is so high end yes like all the shows they have on there like the most dangerous game Liam Hemsworth. It looks like a huge blockbuster movie but it's in ten minutes segments which I love because it's so enjoyable. It's really exciting. Because you get new episode every day so you have something to look forward to which we love because we always get nervous. That are things are running out. Yes yes that's true. So it's great is the look like huge blockbuster. Movies even flipped which is a comedy shot beautifully. Yes so every one of them looks phenomenal. They all have huge actors like tons of fun shows and what I like about it is. They're not launching with like two things fair. This is a ton of content. It is with huge stars of every kind of Genre. So we don't feel scared that we're not gonNA have enough and your wife. My mother was in show she was in. Thanks a million. Which is Jennifer Lopez? Show and IT'S AMAZING. Kristin was when we first got like the offer for it was like I cannot believe I did. Not Think of this idea eh. She got one hundred thousand dollars. Is that what it was yet to give to somebody which she gave it to this educator? We know who totally deserves? And then that person has to give half of their money to someone else. They think deserves it. It's really really cool. Anyways you guys I have You can go right now. Download and get a ninety day free trial and has a ton of fresh original shows. New episodes come out every day. I love it commence much you leave in of a singing her music before she got on none none. Okay well fun thing. We did was While we were waiting for her to join the zoom call I just put on her some of her greatest hits on the I packs and we sang along waiting for her. She's so prolific she is. I even forgot some of the songs I'm going to be honest with. I wanted to get diary of right. That's the song like this. She says be able and in the process zoom in past all these other songs around like. Oh yeah that's a giant hood. That's a China. Oh that's a great song I love her. I'm in love with her. I already loved her and now I'm in love with I really did. I was already such a huge fan. And then she was so special thoughtful normal very normal Mary down to Earth. That's what I want to say. Mostly she's normal. Yeah good job. Alicia set out to be spectacular in your norm. No she's both. She's both spectacular and normal. I think yes such an uphill battle when you're starting at such a young age in this industry in the entertainment industry and fame and all that stuff so much to balance for young nineteen. Yeah Yeah I would have been dead. No Question Yeah. Yeah too much money too much problems more money. I know we've seen the Tattoo on my back problems and small. My back wouldn't even be surprised case I would like that. Yeah You get any more threats. If I didn't act I'd have a lot more. It's a too big of a pain in the ass covered like if I were to play. Joe Exotic I'm going to be there an hour and a half earlier getting this whole thing covered on my shoulder. Do you think he had any pets tigers. I have to assume so if he didn't that would be ridiculous policy to not have any business. Yeah sure yeah couple. Updates ONE IS. I Guess Joe from somehow behind bars. His made a statement that he wants. Either Brad Pitt or David Spade to play him in El Nino this wide range. I love it well ever since Brad Pitt to play them. So that's just I guess everyone wants. I would want Brad Pitt to play me. Even though my story wouldn't make a ton of sense if he was playing me like I want Charlene's to play me and you do not really anyone could do it if anyone could pull off Brown face. No no no non offensive way. Don't think should be her because she turned into monster. Remember monsters. She's very transformative. Very so your your best friend. Aaron weeklies here. He's leaving tomorrow. How do you feel sad? Yeah I've been having so much fun laughing at absolutely nothing. None of our jokes translate to anyone else because you guys are constantly around just laughing so hard about the same four things and they're just not funny to anyone else which I accept but voyeur. They funny to us. Almost every single thing becomes about bass and Mackerel and steelhead and sturgeon. Well that's true. Most things lead to fish. But I agree that you generally feels pretty insular when you guys. Yeah doesn't feel inviting not yeah. It's hard because I don't know of anyone thinks any of that's funny. I can only speak for myself. I think it's funny. Four six seconds Then generally you guys like to turn it into six minutes at least minimally. My brother hated us when we discovered each other. We would sit in the basement. I remember one time in particular. He came downstairs and we were laughing at a a slice. Pop can just looking at the circle on it and thinking what it was saying and all this stuff and we were really really laughing hysterically McCain on series like what are you doing fucking laughing at a pop. Can you guys are full shit? You're not really laughing. He screamed at us. Weren't really laughing. Yeah somehow all charade I think he probably felt left out well. Now that I'm forty five. I think it's sweet. I think he did feel left out. I used to have those jokes. And then all of a sudden there was a new guy around Adam him but he didn't use in and out because he's five years older than me so he only wanted to have inside job with me one day a week. I wanted them seven days a week. Course Yeah I do think it's really cute and fun and funny to be around you guys because this summer we were you guys around each other a bit but it felt different. Maybe the amount of time wasn't as concentrated or something I don't know but if all different so it feels like I'm really peaking in relationship and it's very cute it is. Is that mostly annoying? No it's cute. It just feels very excluding. It feels a little excluding. Yeah which you know is not my intention. I want everyone on board. Everyone thought the pills so there are goop pills called. Or why am I so effing tires? They are good they were they work in the and Kristen gave some to weekly and then he was taken him he loved him and then he happened to read on the bottom then. It was chalked full of sardines and Mackerel. And all these fish. Yeah then we start talking about how many bass or in each pill. There's a twelve inch bass every pill and then I recognized. That's not fun for anyone else but for us. It's very fun. I I was there for the beginning of that conversation when it started and it was fun but then beat it into well you just took it to a new level but then it felt once it hit that like others. No place for me in this conversation anymore. So then I'm just sitting there watching you guys do for ten minutes and then I had to get up and leave Yup. Yeah I recognize it. I don't really know what to do. What would you if you were me? It's really funny for me. Oh our newest one right is a gang banger. Who Cares a lot at that? His friend pursues his artistic dreams. Have you been listening to that one? That's the one that took over. Yes the last couple of days and it was like a gang banger and he really appreciated actors contributions to the life into gang banger. But he noticed he's really good at comedy and he should do an open mic night at the laugh factory. And what's funny? Is that this gang. Banger knows all the names of the different places. So he knows about Broadway. Yeah and then the more knows about it. The funnier it is. Yeah okay. You don't get funnier when I explain them. This is a broader question. But do you think when you're around him? Do you think you feel more childlike? Oh big time. Yeah Yeah Yeah yeah feel twelve years old when I'm around. Yeah which I like. Yeah he's also being textbook weekly. He is who he is since he was eleven. Which is now he has two puppies he has no business having these such an Arrow keys textbook weekly. He ended up with two puppies taking care of and realizing. Oh Shit this time to work. There is so cute. They argue but that's the sweetest part about him missing anything. That sounds like a good idea. Yeah we'RE OPPOSITE IN THAT INTERESTING. I would've went straight to the six. Am them whining shooting? Everywhere I'm like arrested or confined by too much frontal lobe thinking me too. Yeah and he's just like yeah. They look cute in that moment. Let's get more about the rest later. He's a very nice boy. He is he's the sweetest essences just sweetness. Okay Aleisha okay. Alicia Keys Okay. So you said that. I'd been living at the house for a month before a quarantine mud.

Lawrence is so funny so funny some people can just say words certain people that like you don't even need a really right Joe. Just let them say a sentence in. It'll be hysterical.

How are you all doing all clustered family as did you know? We're we're good. We're healthy and and we're feeling well. My youngest genesis is a homebody anyway. So it's only so much to get him out the house anyways he couldn't be happier and the older the older ones are definitely you know missing their friends and and asking what's coming on. How are they going to be going on? But I think that we're doing some good things that I like to try to have. Some type of routine has happened after them to look forward to it. But we're doing well and we are. We're keeping spirits high. What are you all doing? Are you playing games? And how many kids are in the house? I know Genesis and and and and Dr there but are the other big kids there to Denison Egypt Genesis Egypt Air in the house. So that's thirteen nine and I'm five. Wow Are you playing games? Are you getting out for little walks? What are you doing? I'm doing good walks and bike rides and come scooter. Rides and stuff like that in our in behind them and and we're doing monopoly omens the endless games of endless nights with monopoly. I'm getting beat real bad. I don't know why I can't seem to win. Monopoly is making me a little frustrated. But we're getting there. We're doing books reading every day. You know that for a certain amount of time working out doing sit ups. Even Genesis is trying to get a six pack pop in. Do you feel more connected or getting a little. Stir crazy me what. I'm what I'm finding that I don't feel like I have any time personally. I know that sounds so weird because we're all talking about how not doing as much as how we normally do in that kind of thing but I'm finding that obviously with the kids home and then with us all together. I don't have the space that maybe I was able to carve out of the space. That's a little bit. You know what of nowhere to show? I think this is especially hard on mothers. Moms shoutout to all the MOMS out there. Because I've said my whole career that it's the toughest and most important of all the jobs on the planet and now MOMS have to be. The teacher had to be the principal. The Cafeteria Lady there the gym teacher and school nurse all at the same time. I heard that Egypt said you were mean teachers at your box. You being mean to being means you. You have to do this particular thing you gotta do eat. So let's do it but you know that that balance between being strong enough to make sure that this thing on track and staying connected to what they needed to do. Because it's hard to self start to actually have to sell start yourself a complete a project without social element. It's really really hard so he did. I think he was just a little frustrated. I'm how but I mean yeah and you know so so well I believe a crisis comes to teach us something and this is a crisis for sure on every level your husband posted on instagram. That this is the best time to get your mind your body and your soul strong tune into to yourself and pull out the best ever. That's what I think Swiss posted. What is what. What have you learned about yourselves and each other during this time? I think we are seeing that. Were very good together. We do have a good flow together which I think could become quite difficult neck. You and you're kind of always together always in close quarters. Sometimes you can maybe all the things that you haven't quite worked through amount. I find that we're we're actually quite good together. We have a balance. There's something about the age of the kids that's added simply because at a certain time that was tricky to you. Know with an age difference sometimes is creates just right on so that's one thing. I'm happy for that. We have a good connection there I think that we're definitely feeling a lot. I think the gratitude for the little things from you and I was just saying you know. The planet needs a little break too and needs to regenerate and rejuvenate needs us. All the kind of you know do that as well. So we've been saying and I love this but that you you been saying this that encouraging people to keep their frequency high us. Yes he say hi. Yes because I think it's it's very disconcerting.

Know people who are sick or ill or or having difficulties and you know you want your family to be safe and many of us are not with our families because we're in different locations and so you just feel very uncomfortable and you feel out of control and a lot of ways and I think the normality of our everyday life really helps with the schedules and things. It really actually helps keeps pounding. So you don't have that. I was even thinking how many people united sometimes you're not even getting dressed because you're like well I'll have to get dressed so I'm just gonNA show which feels good but then after a while you messes with your head.

The Incredible Singing Tortoise
"The incredible singing tortoise once upon a time on a stormy afternoon Zane was hurrying home from school he had just found out it was his turn for show and tell on. Friday and his brain world with ideas of what to bring. He was so busy thinking that he forgot his coat in his cubby. The cold rain slipped over his hair down the back of his neck making him shiver can't wait to get home and dry off. He muttered. Maybe I'll even have a mug of cocoa. He turned to take a shortcut through the woods. Under the trees. The rain fell in a slower. Pit Pat but when the wind blew the branches shook and soaked him underfoot the mud sucked at his shoes with a wet slurping. Sounds maybe two cocoa's he grumbled then cocked. His head had he heard something. He froze listening to the gentle sounds of rain filtering through the forest finally from off in the woods. He heard a soft voice that bow. Scooby Doo Doo. Wow already indeed dining out but he do scuba. Zane heared into the trees. He in a forest really. It was just a strip of woods between a house and a bunch of condos. There wasn't space for anyone to be hiding. Not unless they were buried in the fallen leaves. Maybe somebody dropped their phone. He said thinking of the Joggers who always breezed by listening to music. Zane stepped off the path towards the singing. His feet squelching through the mud. Or maybe it's an old toy. He thought. Perfect for show Intel. He hunted around by his feet. Where is it? He said searching his arms and legs were soon soaked as he waded into the wet leaves. Come on play another song. Do I do as he knew that. Zane pushed aside another branch. Found not a phone but anomaly little tortoise the creature seem to smile up at him and then sang another bar. Zane fell back onto his but in the mud. What how he said you can sing. I can sing. The Tortoise said Zan's jaw dropped. And you can talk and I can talk. She agreed but I usually don't talking tortoise. Is that more impressive than a singing tortoise. Why she asked caulking her leathery head but it definitely is Zane. Said I'm Zine what's your name. Hi My name is Alicia Alicia. You have to come with me for show Intel this Friday show and tell no thank you. I don't like crowds. I'm really pretty shy. She said pulling her head back into her shell a little. You don't seem shy. Zane said he stood up and dusted himself off still staring at her amazed. Well said the Tortoise I see you walking home alone here every day so I figured I don't mind if you hear did did you like it. It was great. I had no idea. Zine said seriously. I thought that it was someone's phone playing like spotify or something in the mud a leash. The tortoise smiled. Well thank you. She said have a good day. She turned and started to walk back into the leaves. Wait no Zane said chasing after her. You're singing turtle you have to come with me. I need to show everyone for show and tell well. I'm a tortoise turtle leashes said and I'd really rather not show anyone else. It's kind of a private thing com on. He said you showed me. I need to show my sister. At least she's GonNa lose her mind. No thanks she said. I'll see you another time. No no Zane said holding up his hands wait here. He turned and ran the rest of the way home. He burst into his front door and skidded into the kitchen where his older sister was putting peanut butter on some crackers. Tayla he said scaring her so badly. The crackers went flying. You need to come see this. He clutched her by the wrist and started dragging her to the front door. Come on come on come on Zeno what she sputtered following him out the door. What are you doing? Where are we going saying my crackers? Just come on. It's worth it. I promise they got to the little strip of woods and stood in the middle of the path. The Rain Patter down and the mud-stained their sneakers. And why did you drag me out here Taylor asked wait? Just listen? They stood together in silence for a moment. Then a minute then to okay. I'm going back inside your own Weirdo. No come on Taylor turned and hurried away. Eager to be out of the rain. Zane watched her leave for a few minutes and then side turning to follow

"alicia" Discussed on On One with Angela Rye
"To pick the thing right like where's our own thing? And that's what I think is so dope about which you all have done with black features that because it gives us our own voice outside of a party apparatus outside at organizing four with him After taking you know Bloomberg money in thirty three states at the party to get on the stage after Commun- Corean Julio honor no longer there which is immensely frustrating to me particularly this cycle because of how much is on the line and so I just wonder now I think my greatest fear is knowing that. We've wrestled. I don't even want to say that it's apathy. I don't know that there are so many black voters who are apathetic. I just think that they have made a choice about where they should spend their time. You know and so. How do we re-engaged people to believe that this is something? That's worth their time in their interests. I think the way we do. That is Mike Grimm. Yeah okay I think the way that we do that first and foremost is by being with people during more times than election cycles zoo. That's right. I was in South Carolina. We were there at the same time in. I just always feel terrible. I feel terrible going into a place where focused descended on for like three weeks and then all of a sudden. It's a ghost town again. There's a black woman who spoke about this where she said that they're all gonna be gone like again. That is like mortifying that's why people don't like politics now and you know it was like sitting at the hotel. Having breakfast I was on a call and I like saw people that I know who work on campaigns and they just go from campaign to campaign and unlike Yo. I'm sitting here in this hotel lobby with you. You're on your eight th campaign but you don't live here. I don't live here but this is how this machine works right now and I think most people just want to feel like somebody cares and is going to do something. I think most people feel like I just want to get back to normal and while that's not where we're headed there's no this is a whole new normal and. I think we need to have rapper heads around that. I do think it points to what we can do to shift. How politics happens. I think the way to do it is to make sure that we are talking with people not app them. I think the way to do it is to make sure that we are talking about rule changes right and not just making cultural references And I think the way to do it is to make sure that people are setting the table. Not just being at the table and to me. If we're able to lock in on those things were good. I mean I can't stop talking about the fact that who I consider to be. My opposition is taking advantage of all of the weaknesses of our side. So you know we could be mad at Michael Bloomberg entering the race but I will tell you. He has a black agenda and he is organizing black elected officials in organizing in black communities in paying people living wages to do outreach for him it's not right but he's taking up space that we are leaving on the table when we listen to the state of the Union address From this president he talked more about in two black people than I think. The Democratic Party has done in four years under this administration. It's not right. It doesn't mean he's genuine but he's taking advantage of things that we're leaving on the table and so when you about text woke to some number period. Yeah so when you have dynamic where you're hungry and somebody shows up with food. You can't be mad that people eat. Yeah but if we don't like that we have to change the way that that happens. So that's what I'm interested in. Why here that had Alicia thank you so much I WanNa give folks that opportunity to ask you crashes. I'm so grateful. Us came here after your board meeting to spend time. So is there any questions will definitely get? I'd grown next to the make. Sure I got all night thousand. Thank you criminal justice reform. We could get into all days all KONA phrases this question. I have that I guess came up when you described who was going to be your ideal candidate you said Elizabeth Warren. I know one thing that struggles for me is one of the things you up was. It needs to be someone who's not just going to say what they WANNA do but it also has to be a voice who knows how to compromise where I find shrug with politics is the compromise usually comes at the expense of people like me so when you say that. I can't really fully behind that either because when I hear the word compromise I think you kinda understand to customize means compromise me so that's where I kind of struggled with. Could you talk about getting people engaged in that kind of thing so to be clear? What I said was that politics is a game of compromise and I think that for those of us who particularly get involved in politics because of our ideology our values Which are different things Often we do it in a way where we expect that. Everybody's going to have the same ideology that we do and so just the plain reality is when laws get made. You're having to negotiate between people who don't have the same values as you and that takes skill right and you're one hundred percent right. That compromise in politics often means that we don't get what we need. So you really need somebody who has the level of integrity not to throw US under the bus? But that doesn't come just from their own integrity. It comes from us being organized and then knowing that there's accountability on the other side of it. So I agree with you. I don't think that we pick somebody. Because they're the best at compromise. I do think you need to pick someone who knows how to move through government as it is not just how we want it to be. But I don't think that means you don't fight for the way you want it to be. I think I often struggle with the way. I think we get taught to engage in this form of political engagement is from a place of not actually knowing how the thing works so like. I talked to people a lot about primary votes and folk think. It's one voice. One vote Mike notes.

Here's Daniel Jones editor of the modern love column for The New York Times when you think about the words love and bravery it's usually about about being brave enough to be vulnerable with another person and Nicole in in her essay is a really different kind of bravery. It's are you going to be brave enough to show your love to the world if the world or at least in this community disapprove of that love and make you feel frightened. But what a sad commentary that that she lays out this hierarchy eric of who is allowed to hold hands. Speaking of hierarchies. It's sort of a hierarchy of bravery to the degree that they are going to express their love in in public. And say this is who I love and we're GONNA walk down. The street together expressing Matt Love. Here's Alicia Alicia keys. What I liked about this essay was I love the honesty of it? I love the everyday Innis of it. Obviously I'm from New York born born and raised so I know these streets know what she's talking about and I thought that I related to it very much. Just from one human being to another experiencing life and experiencing these oppressions that become the subtle ways that we all have to self protect. I think sometimes others don't even realize how that might be affecting the person that you know. Their judgment is directed towards and so I found this to be a really human story and my song. Show me love one of the things that I've always been thinking about him. Regards to that song is how much no matter who we are. We all just want one simple thing and that is to be shown love like we all just want to be able to be who are without having a twisting contorted to make somebody else feel comfortable and I felt like this was a beautiful representation of that exact sentiment..

Despite, you know, everything that went down, you know, especially after all the documentaries and everything. But I was so happy to see him find love again with Alicia and have children and really just get a fresh start and it served him well, and we got to really see that in person right gory.
