Working Toward a More Inclusive Music Industry

"One of the big stories in the music industry right now has been the response to hip hop star two babies homophobic comments, which he made during a festival in Miami late last month. As NPR's Elizabeth Blair reports, the fallout was swift as multiple festivals canceled his shows. With his millions of followers on social media. The baby has a powerful platform. He's one BT awards and been nominated for Grammys. I'm one of the greatest ain't no debate. No, no, I'm still levitated medicated. Ironic I gave him love and they and the painting on me. That's the baby on a Dua Lipa song that's in the top 10 of the Billboard's hot 100 chart. During his concert at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami, he told the audience to put your cell phone light up. If you didn't show up with HIV AIDS, you didn't show up today with HIV AIDS and get up there and essentially transmitted disease making died. 23 weeks put his cell phone right now. The backlash was immediate. Dua Lipa distanced herself from the baby Lollapalooza removed him from the lineup. Then more festivals canceled two shows Elton John and Madonna railed against the misinformation in his comments about HIV. I think there's a new moment. There's definitely a new moment. The baby is a big star and Brown University professor Tricia Rose says The cost to his career is significant. At the same time, she says, the music industry has long tolerated and profited from artists like the baby. There's many, many artists who are promoted by the industry, who are celebrated by the industry because of their quote unquote edgy, extreme behavior. And you know that is a longstanding pattern that has not abated in any way And then you know when they step out of line about when and how they actually live into that identity. Then there's all this sort of, you know we're all about peace, love and

"His conviction on charges of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman, Andrea Constand at his home years earlier. NPR's Elizabeth Blair has been following this story. Good morning, Elizabeth. Good morning, Noel. What are we hearing from the other women who say copy assaulted them. They are stunned and disappointed to a lot of them. It's hard to understand how, after all of these women have come forward after a jury found Cosby guilty that he could still be released on a legal technicality. Are also concerned about what the news will do to victims of sexual assault. I spoke with Angela Rose, who is the head of a nonprofit called Pave, which stands for promoting awareness victim empowerment. Here's what she said. I fear that this is going to really hinder other survivors from coming forward. And so you know this case, The Bill Cosby case was truly one of the first cases in the Hashtag Metoo movement, and it really paved the way for other survivors of high profile influential perpetrators to speak out, so I don't want that to be lost. Rose was in the courtroom supporting the alleged victims who testified in the Andrea Constand trial, She says the news of Cosby's releases like a knife in the heart for them At the same time, there were some people who publicly expressed support for him. Interestingly, his co star on The Cosby Show, Felicia Rashad for many years, said very little about all of this. Yes, Phylicia Rashad, who played Cosby's wife on TV for many years, was at first, very enthusiastic. She tweeted. Finally, a terrible wrong is being righted. A miscarriage of justice is corrected. She later back pedaled and sent another tweet, saying she supported survivors of sexual assault coming forward and that her earlier post was quote in no way intended to be insensitive to their truth. And I imagine that was because I mean, I saw this happened yesterday. People online were outraged. Very much. So Rashad was recently appointed dean of Howard University's Chadwick Boseman College of Fine Arts, and a number of Howard alumni feel the comment was really inappropriate. Soraya McDonald is a Howard graduate and culture critic for ESPN's The undefeated, She says Rashad's comments could have a chilling effect on students. You know, I try to imagine if you're a person who has been sexually harassed her is being sexually assaulted. You know by a fellow student who is also in the college of Fine Arts, and you think Well, Should I go to Dean were shot about this? I can't imagine thinking that you know that is someone who is who is going to support you. I wonder, you know, as we heard earlier, this was one of the first high profile cases of the me too. Movement. Is this a setback for that movement? Can we say Some activists are saying yes, this is a setback and we can see it's lost some steam with the general public, but the champions of the movement are still added Attorney Gloria Allred, who has represented some of Cosby's accusers held a press conference yesterday. She made it very clear that she is moving forward with the civil case against Bill Cosby in Los Angeles County. He's representing a woman who claims Cosby sexually assaulted her when she was 15 years old. Cosby has denied causing any harm to her. NPR's Elizabeth Blair. Thank you, Elizabeth. Thank you. All right. So why did the Pennsylvania Supreme Court vacate Cosby's conviction? It is very complicated. In fact, with me now is Nikki Wise and see Egan. She's an investigative reporter who covered the case. She also wrote the book chasing Cosby and hosts a podcast. Of the same name. Good morning, Nikki. Good morning. You've been following the accusations against Cosby since very early on. Did you see this coming? Well, I haven't actually following it Since the first day, the story broke in 2000 and five. I really had a sense that the the state Supreme Court was not going to rule in the prosecution's favor. In December one, I watched the oral arguments because the justices questioning of the prosecution was very hostile. In fact, At one point, the chief justice just walked away from his screen and his screen went blank for 10 minutes. It was on YouTube because of Covid. It was just extraordinary watch. I had never seen such unprofessional behavior in my life, so I expected they were going to rule in his favor, But not on this issue. I thought it would be the issue of the other accusers who were allowed to testify. This was a non issue. In my view. I mean, there is no proof that there was an immunity agreement zero proof. Ha ha. Let's talk about your mentoring an issue and we haven't actually defined what that is. What was it issued The Supreme Court vacates the conviction and says, We are doing it because of X. What is X? They believe that Cosby's due process rights were violated, because, while um Bruce Castor, the former DEA claims the press release he put out announcing cause he wasn't going to charge. Cosby in 2000 and five was also an immunity agreement. And because of that Cosby cooperated more fully during the deposition in Andrius case than he would have made those incriminating comments, which were in turn used in the trials against him. I want to play a clip from Victoria Valentino. She's one of the women who is accused Bill Cosby and she talked to our colleagues on all things considered yesterday. Let's listen. When he was sentenced when he was found guilty, Our faith was restored. And now even though maybe there is a legal glitch That can support his false claim of innocence We have to carry on. Regardless, I wonder what you think of this term legal glitch and whether this is similar. What Miss Valentino is saying there is similar to what you've heard from his other accusers. I mean, Yeah, I've heard mixed things. Some were just confused and very upset. Tamara Green, who is a lawyer herself with a little more pragmatic about it pointed out. Hey, he did serve three years and he's 83. That's something I mean. The shocking thing here is the remedy that the court decided was to bar him from being tried for a third time and release him immediately from prison on an issue that there is you can call it a legal clinch, but there's there's no proof that there was any such agreement an immunity agreement..

"Kenny and Keith Lucas are stand up comedians and identical twins. People don't have to react when I see twins. No. Okay, they go crazy like we were in the supermarket looking for some Jell O. Yeah. And we're just about to pick it out. And then some dude came out of nowhere. It was like, you know, you guys have a stick of Doublemint gum. That's from their 2017. Netflix special Lucas brothers were having a moment right now they're writing and starring in a remake of Revenge of the Nerds, But they also wrote the story for the new movie Judas and the Black Messiah. The film premieres today in theaters and on HBO. Max NPR's Elizabeth Blair has this profile. The Lucas brothers are best known for a kind of stoner humor. And here's a rule of thumb You should never do. Shrooms wouldn't do Who looks like you, man. I'm telling you. But underneath the jokes, there's a serious side that draws heavily on their childhood in the housing projects of Newark, New Jersey, called the Garden spires is you always, you know, broken elevators infested with rats and rotten Drug dealing violence everywhere, But you know, there's a community that is people that there's families is my family When they were six years old there, Dad went to prison. My father actually is out of prison. He's not in prison anymore, and it sucks that he's out. I wish he was still there. Oh, yeah. I wanted to go back because all he wants to do is father's sight. Don't like do we pay rent? Now it's over. The Lucas Brothers connection to Newark got the attention of New Jersey Senator Cory Booker in 1999, then a Newark City councilman, Booker went on a hunger strike in front of the Garden spires. He also served as the city's mayor. Here's Booker talking to the Lucas brothers on his instagram. I love your insightful, hard hitting humor and the sort of the Eddie Murphy and S O. My great heroes Coming up, you know, were uncompromising how they used humor to shake folks woke like book arm. Keith and Kenny Lucas went to law school and why you and Duke, But unlike Booker, they dropped out. It was weird Tonto Study law and and kind of be poor and black because it's like, Oh, I see what The consequences of policy and law are like on a daily basis, and especially when it in relation to African Americans and the notion of criminality and how it's projected onto blacks and I see that process. I found myself sort of disengaged very early. I always said, you know what I want to do something that has a direct impact on people. From an emotional standpoint, Judas and the Black Messiah is very emotional. Lucas brothers were in college when they first learned about Fred Hampton, the charismatic leader of the Illinois Black Panther Party in the 19 sixties in the movie he's played by Daniel Cholula, Mother Liberating You can't Murder Liberation is another revolutionary, but you can't murder a revolution for murder Freedom fighter, but you get amount of freedom. He's the Black Messiah. Judas is William O'Neal, an African American who was arrested for interstate car theft and Impersonating a federal officer in the movie. We see how the FBI recruited O'Neill to avoid jail time and earn some money. He was instructed to infiltrate the Black Panther Party. And provide the FBI with information about Hampton O'Neill is played by like Keith Stanfield Target You Like some good information, some nobody else No. Is it some kind of bonuses? I'm I'm counting on it. Bill O'Neill became so much of a Panther insider. He was put in charge of security. He provided the FBI with a floor plan of Hampton's apartment in 1969. The Chicago police raided the apartment and killed two Black Panther leaders, including Hampton for the Lucas Brothers. It was essential to tell the story of how the FBI recruited informants in the black community. I think it's important to see just how insidious The system has been in turning young African Americans against one another. Now they Essentially used poor black people against poor black people to execute their goals of minimizing the threat of black messiah is like we just felt it was important to see both sides of the coin. Whether it's a historical drama or its stand up comedy for the Lucas Brothers. It all comes from the same source in a big thing about our act is that we we always try to ground it and stuff that we've gone through, and it's always been Important for us to talk about these systemic issues and a variety of ways. Now they're writing and will star in Seth McFarland reimagining of 1980 four's Revenge of the Nerds Practice a bunch after school. They called US nerds. So one cool. The Lucas brothers promise that their movie will be almost nothing like the original because times have changed. It's like the juxtaposition of being a bully and a nerd is so different from what it was like in the eighties, where you had this one, a stark dichotomy between what it was bullying what it was to be a nerd. Now that's been fused together, and I think That's why the time is right to make a story about that. The Lucas brothers say it's hard to watch the original revenge of the nerds. Even though the movie was a childhood staple. They're excited to give it an update and to make it personal. Elizabeth Blair. NPR news

President Trump said speaker Pelosi's decision not to allow the state of the union to be delivered in the house chamber until after the shutdown ends is her prerogative. He added that he isn't looking for an alternative venue to deliver the address because quote, there is no venue that can compete with the history tradition and importance of the house chamber. I look forward to giving a great state of the union address in the near future. Pelosi responded saying she hoped that phrase near future meant Trump would accept the democratic Bill being voted on in the Senate to end the shutdown. That seems unlikely just Wednesday President Trump had attempted to call Pelosi's bluff saying. He intended to deliver the address as planned January twenty ninth only to accept her position.
