"So so I remember we were looking at each other like is this really happening and we were singing them doing video rely I think it's going to be cool and literally that next day it was all like, no one's going anywhere. No one's doing anything and that was the last thing in that March moment. So at that point, I was definitely mostly finished with the project I I knew that the the majority was already completed maybe one or two things to finish or like couple mixes or things like that. But I wasn't a place where I knew what it felt like you know. So you you and your team were able to finish it up over the coin. Yeah I mean we'd be mostly you know we mostly didn't do anything because we were trying to figure out that way what more. Even. Do it and where do we go and how do we get there and so we kind of figured some stuff finally to make things at least fluid and to be able to create and be able to have a place to like get content and just just create just have some a little bit of a hub but but at the but at the very beginning nothing and then finally maybe a month ago at the end of the summer I put the last finishing touches on the project and just said, okay, this it everything's done and that was kind of flow. It was moment where it's just nothing. You're a kirk plan on a tour for twenty twenty, right so man I'm just now right and. Twenty obviously was twenty twenty. That's like the the theme. It's funny twenty it was twenty twenty. Right at least you had to drive and. I'll be there. Everybody's at the drive in now. Hey. Mine.

"Yeah I again, at the beginning nothing nothing literally nothing I I didn't feel even. The desire to create and I think that's almost because it was also shock and I had completed the whole Alicia project already. So I kind of put I put on his creative energy into something already, and then everything just kinda ceased so. I was just like waiting wait now. What now? What so I think I? Think he gave me some space to not feel the pressure of having to create because as a creative you do tend to. Enjoy create but also noted that's like that's your your your wheel. You gotTA. Let you know. So I think that gave me the the energy to not feel the pressure of it and be able to Kinda lean into the unknown of everything but then. I did start heavy meditating, which I've always done and I would do that heavy meditation but probably about five and then five thirty and then I would do a workout and then I'd get the kids off school and then I'd have a good day but anytime, I didn't do that in that. I would feel like all you all the way off off off. So that's kind of what happens the first bit. There's one thing that I forgot I. Forgot that my spotify platelets is public as public instill Fonte kind of out of me last week because he noticed that. I've been putting a lot of hours into like my by narrow beats in my.

"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.

"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.

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.

Chico get your first month free on select crates at Kiwi Co dot com slash broken record. That's K- I W I C O dot com slash broken record. We're back with more from Alicia keys. 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.

"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.

"The emotional component was for you. Did you have a moment? Where where you grew. Up in Hell's kitchen in Manhattan most densely populated city in America. I grew up in rural. I'm just going to say white trash but similar is that all the dudes hanging in the neighborhood who had no jobs to go to everyone at a hustle. Everyone was trying to get something and I was. Overtly aware that everyone wanted something of mine and I wonder. Was there a moment where you recognized all these people that are quote managing me or guiding me or my label President or all this? Oh they just the same hustlers that I knew to have my guard up for as a kid but I let I let the Wolves Hen House. Did you have any emotional? You're like Oh fuck. They're just hustle and to and they're just trying to get everything for me to and what does that feel like? Does it feel like betrayal. Heartbreak is expected. I think I have been blessed to have some people who really did genuinely want to protect me. I think I really do. I think that they did want the best for me. They did want to save me from what they knew is such a dirty greasy. See grimy take take take type of business and then Kinda spits you out I go. I got what I want from you and you finishing out of me you know. So there's so much of that energy in this space that they did want to protect me. I think that of course by nature. It's difficult because you are putting together a friendship and business and and I actually do believe that friendships and business can excel and can work. I'm not of the mind like separate friends and I don't think it always has to be like that truly. No you can be friends and do good business live with my co host. So see so. That'll tell you everything you need to know but but I think that it also by nature it does make you have to be more aware. I think because I think later I started to realize that a lot of the things that I even thought were my dreams. Were other people's dreams that I was executing for them. Yeah and a portion of that is a beautiful exchange. You know I help you reach your dreams. You help me reach my dreams together. We're all growing. There's balanced state. There's surely something really good that comes from that in an unbalanced they it starts to be. I think deceiving as two does a person really want this for you or do they want this for whatever it might be. Yeah and I think that's where it becomes so necessary for you to have your kind of in check and for you to have clarity about what you need. And what brings you happiness because you can find yourself taken away by all these things that are you know. Motivating people for reasons. That might not always be in your best interests and you might not even totally realized it so I did find that I had to start to become more aware of that where I would probably be a little bit. More trusting. 'cause this is my and he's been with me four and we got such a and look at you know we're doing so and also still be awake to the fact that okay but what do you need and making sure that it's okay that you're good with that and then if it all adds up great everybody can get what they need and his all cool but you can get lost in it. I think sometimes well isn't the overriding fear really for all of us. That if I have these boundaries if I create this hurdle for somebody that might be the thing that I find. Oh they didn't love me that much that we think we have to be totally available for somebody Doing it on their terms in order to deserve their love. When we're just nervous to find out if we have this hurdle or this boundary that someone might bail out. Isn't that like at the bottom of it? All that resonated with me and since so much of our lives because of our different experiences and the different bruises and wounds were trying to nurse all the time with. Abandonment is at the root of so much of what fuels us or what gives us that level of fear that underlying tone that we don't even realize and I think that yes. I think you know because abandonment has definitely been something that I am pretty sure ninety nine point nine if not one hundred of us have all experienced in some way there. Is that fear of like. Will you stay? If I don't agree with you. Would you actually be okay? If I don't think that same thing and like I said with with my mother it's always been such a you know a hard opinion where it was Kinda like. If I didn't agree it would be so much to even deal with that. I was just like you know what? I'm going to agree so that we can just move on and I think a lot of that trained me to do things. Sometimes that may be Didn't always stand up for my own truth and that becomes tricky. Because then you get into that place whereas I will. Maybe you're the only stability I have in this thing. And and so of course. We're all looking for security. Okay so the last thing I want to say to. You is As I said I'm a the thing I love about A. Is that all the life lessons picked up. Have been from someone telling me how they fail. Not How they how. They were victorious. It was them going. I fucked up in this way and I go. Oh I see you. I do that same thing in now. My ears are open so I think what you've done with this book more myself. I think it's so brave of you to be vulnerable and go. I'm Alicia keys. I'm in my late thirties. A millionaire and I've got more grammys than fucking teeth my mouth and I can't say who I am and I have a fear of being true to who I am so for all the other women or young man or whatever who find that to be a challenge. You admitting that that's a challenge for you is very powerful and I think it's very cool of you. It's a very cool way to be of service so I'm really happy for you that this is the book you wrote. I really appreciate those words. I my favorite part. Was You saying he's gone curl up in a bed and read ten minutes just to you know how effective and then you got stuck in a vibe for like. Oh that is so amazing and I really do hope. That's the experience of the people that are reading. This and I'm so grateful that I have been able to come to a place and you know it seems you too and we have been able to come to a place that I can embrace the parts of me that are wounded and not totally hold or full of self doubt and by my journey of embracing those things. I feel so much more open. I feel so much more human. I feel so much more of a connection with people that in a lot of my life. I don't think I allowed myself to have because they all these masks and all this armor and all these mechanisms that I thought were kind of keeping me strong and allow me to plow through stonewall and I am just so grateful to be at a place now where it's like. Actually all those other parts are the parts that are rich and full of complexity and interesting and make you so nuanced and beautiful and complex and gorgeous and that is what makes us understand each other. So it's so much more freeing to just honor you and I and I love that. We're all trying to figure that out well again. I can't relate to. Winning GRAMMYS ARE OPENING. My mouth and cold coltrane sacks comes out but all the vulnerabilities. I was like. Oh I know this person There's a big part of me. That's this person so I just thank you for me and I hope we get to talk to you again. I'd love to do it in pursing how that POPs real-life. I'll try to wear another hat when I meet you in person. I have this same hat though. This is my favorite hat. All Right Elise show. Well we love you and thank you for taking the time and We really hope to talk to you again. Thank your game is tight. It's good facetime Game Ca. You write about you too. I doubt about three minutes. But you're right be safe right. Todd.

"Teaches people on know and they don't get this goes out to Dr King Ban. Alan cheuse you'll find that soon enough. We will buy Okay hustles teachers. Everybody out there. You know what I love about the songs that you're asking all of us to look at people. We encounter in daily life. No matter who we are and find a human connection. Yes definitely I think sometimes you know we we go so fast which is kind of what I think is happening right. Now go fast. We're so busy where we all got our dreams trying to get. You GotTa get the kids very family we got. We got everything going on. And we don't get a minute to just connect with each other in a way that's meaningful especially if we don't know and so I think in some ways right now you know we're connecting with each other in a way that maybe we haven't always had the time to yeah. I see that I want to move to the book. Because I'm GonNa say this about this book. I wanted you to be the very first person on my imprint. For overbooks everybody knows. I love books. I'm usually recommending everybody else's books and so I now am working with the publisher flat out. I have my own imprint where I just do books from people that I find are interesting fascinating and I want everybody else to experience. So you're my very first version gun. Yes and one of the reasons. When I heard that you're even thinking about doing a book that I wanted to be the person who put it out there in the world for you for us for all of us is because I think you are so spiritually aligned. Deletion this and that you really are not just somebody who talks about this whole people like sign their emails. Levin late loving lives to you. You actually are someone who embodies it and you know when I knew this. I knew this when you were sitting on my step. So y'all know I did something around two thousand two thousand five thousand four. I did legends ball. Where had all the great legends of our time? I Angela and Coretta Scott King in Ruby Dee and Diana Ross and I had twenty of them here and I invited the youngins. You were the young all the women who had been able to benefit including myself from what these extraordinary African American women had done and there was a moment where I was walking through the house. And everybody's house and you were sitting on my stairs and you're crying on the stairs and you said to me there's just so much legacy and love in this room. I want to be able to. I promise you you said to me. I promise you I'm going to be one of the people to pass it on member this yesterday. Really I remember being on those stairs. I remember being in so shock and awe and I couldn't even believe what was happening. I remember begging for Journal. I begged you for a journal and you went to your room. And he brought me down in journal and I wrote a poem. I wrote the way that I felt in that moment in that book. Yeah and I didn't even describe it. I still can't even but I do remember that moment so clearly. An I knew then that there was something I felt from the very first time you because I've said this and everybody you and everybody knows you did your very first national TV appearance with me on the open. When you hit that note I went. Whoa who is this girl? But that moment sitting on the stairs I thought yeah you will be one of the few who actually get it and pass it on and so this book is all about that. The thing I want people know most is that we're all on our journey and even though this book more myself is about your journey what you talk about is the journey that we're all taking the decisions we all have to make and that big question of who am I really. And how do I stand in the truth of it? How do you know who you are? How do you know I didn't know who I was and I still have to? Constantly remind myself and seek out the shoot who. I am right now in this moment and I don't think there's ever been. There's not a person at that pushes you mostly in all of our lives. Say What are you feeling? What are you going through? And you access yourself. All we're taught is kind of how to emulate everything else or how to how to Otto the Bulls or how to do what everyone told us to do so that we can make everybody happy in. How do you actually find that way to express discover what is good for you and then be able to be strong enough to actually claim it is crazy and I definitely not been that for much of my life? And that's what I'm actually sharing that process and how I've found the ways to do that and still to. This Day is constant practice in a constant work. Yeah it is a constant practice because you know we all keep evolving. I think there was at the beginning. I definitely felt a very clear sense of what I knew. I wanted to do. Even as an artist as a piano player as a woman as a writer as a as a creative my own sound. I knew that I didn't want to dilute that. Even when I spoke to you that first time on the show you will you write all your things and I was like I do and you said a woman after my own heart but over time you know I think you start to get less clear. Even over time. He started to get less there about what you start to think. Other people have all the answers because they have more experienced and I think that that would realize is in what I've started earned happened for quite a long time until realized that nobody knows you better than you. They might know the business better than you might have been in it longer than you and they might have certain experiences. They don't know nobody knows you better than you. But it really wasn't until I talk to you that I even really figured out how to make that makes sense and I knew fundamentally but how do you actually talk this which talk. We've had some talks we've has is the most important because I was. My business was changing and there was a lot of people that were started out in my life on a business side that we're no longer in my life and I felt like I needed to find new people who can fill those holes and you shared with me that you live also found time for that happens and you wrote. That's when you realize that nobody knows you better than you. And after that conversation I started out as a resounding yes conversation happening that was sounding yes farmers which led us and there was on the as you were saying the reason why nobody knows more than you is because only you know what resonates with you and you know when there's an opportunity for you if it feels right but I didn't know how to say no Yup and had I know fastball. Some years later had I felt that feeling in your gut where it's just not right then. It's not right. Isn't it true that every good decision you've ever made his come straight from the Gut? A hundred million billion percent of the data saying that means either no or wait until it is a resounding yes they now the Nice addition. When you first met you'd known Switzer Long Time and you tell the story of how when you first heard him say something that he could come up with a beat in ten minutes you thought he was so arrogant like who is this guy. Thinks he can make beats in ten minutes. And then you when you first experienced it. You like Whoa. He's really yeah. I mean I I was. There was some interview that he was saying. He makes all has-beens in ten minutes and I was like us. Of course he meets makes his beats in ten minutes. Have you heard his beats so I had all this judgment about him and all these thoughts that I had and when we actually worked together you know what happened was? He's a conduit he's like. Oh He's an open he's an open conduit and he's so clear about what he allows the space for. Magic? That's what I've learned from him a lot and because he allows that space he let things come out without without judging it without overthinking without trying to impress with it he just and we literally sat in that role and in ten minutes. We created a thing and I was like I get get it. You know what I in reading about. The love affair that can is continuous. That is ongoing between the two of you and you do talk a lot about him. More myself I think that you have one of the strongest spiritual partnerships. I've ever seen Gary Zubkov defines a spiritual partnership as a partnership between equals for the purpose of spiritual growth. And it sounds like that's exactly who the two of you are. You're in it for each other for yourselves. And that one wants the other to grow as much as the other wants to grow and that together you are the spiritual partnership yes now. That's why I've actually never heard it described like that but that resume such a yes for me and for us and I mean because we couldn't be more different we're truly two opposite people in so many ways. But that's what I think makes it makes. It makes the spirituality growth part hat because where he has more of the freedom or he has more of like. I said he's a he. He has open space for magic. I was always very regimented and kind of structure based and I would plan things so perfectly but he just kind of flows through today so obviously we when we come together. He gives me a piece of that magic in that flow and then I give him a piece of that structure because it's actually necessary for both to row in these ways and and it is absolutely that totally. I feel what happens between us. It's very very and I've never met a person that I've related to more than him. Y'All y'all seem to fit together so beautifully which is a nice time. Nice segue into if I ain't got you. Hey I really wanted to play if I ain't got you because I think that where we are right now. Just how everybody's feeling. I think that we call more than ever. What really matters and I think right now. We see that our connection with each other is the most important and this is one of my favorites..
