"Narrow down to like 14 or 15 for the next album. So I write a lot of songs. I'm excited every time I finish one. But clearly some of those songs aren't even gonna make the album so they kind of fall in my estimation after a while. And then secondly, some songs don't work as well lie. They just don't feel right live, but they make may make a good record, but they may not sound great live. You know, put those songs that don't make it into the vault. Those can be the lost tapes. Yes. Or in general. We'll always have the lost tapes. Right. I'll be like Tupac after I pass. I'll have many releases.

Chrissy Teagan Is Radioactive—and AJ Is Delighted
"As many of you know, I couldn't be more happy watching this fire bring down Teigen. I think it's good that she's being hit where it hurts. Her bank account. That makes her stop and listen and cry. Moon face has made a career out of being a social media troll. So maybe she should shut the fuck up and quit again for a few months, like she keeps promising. I'm glad she's getting a comment she deserves. And John Legend needs to watch out or next thing you know, he's going to get dropped by the voice and other endeavors because of her big mouth. When's the last time she booked a modeling gig? I expect her own agency is going to drop her now too. That's going to be a story coming soon. Even though she's not booking anything, they don't want to be associated with it. Right now, in this kind of business, when you are the chosen one, whether it's modeling, acting, you can't allow yourself with anybody who's controversial. And right now, Chrissy Teigen is

The 2021 Oscars' Best Original Song Nominees
"Get to this year's oscar nominated songs in a minute but before we weigh in on those songs and their chances. Stephen can you talk a little bit about the common themes we've seen from some of the oscar winners and nominees of the last few years. Well each year this category has been a different kind of mixed bag. Depending on what sort of movies are coming out. In a given year you often have a song or more from disney musical. You often have a song from a big blockbusters like all stars from black panther from a couple years ago. Big songs from big movies often wind up making their way into these nominations. And then they'll be mixed in with. Sometimes it's a song you've never heard of by an artist you've never heard of from a movie you've never heard of so. It really is a very very mixed bag from year to year with some recurring themes diane. Warren is very often nominated as a songwriter very often. Especially in recent years. You have a lot of songs that i call for lack of a better term. Glory corn so named for the song. Glory by common and john legend from movie. Selma a few years ago songs that play over the closing credits of movies about social justice all of which have titles that kind of together to form this. I will rise and fight and raise my voice to stand for you and so this year is a little bit of an unusual year for a bunch of obvious reasons. Many of them related to the pandemic. You didn't have a big disney musical so you didn't have a let it go into the unknown big disney banger. And you didn't have a lot of blockbusters you didn't have for example. No time to die. The james bond movie which had a theme song by billie eilish which came out which was pretty well received. And i think would have been a shoe in at least to be nominated and probably win. Had the movie actually come out and thus been eligible so that has kind of opened this year's field to what has turned out to be a whole lot of glory.

From being targeted and

My boyfriend and i have a close friend and he had a cousin who was like a sister to him and we hung out with her a lot. She was in her early thirty s and one day. She was diagnosed with leukemia. And a couple of months later she passed away. Henry and i were very shaken up by it and just sitting and talking and you know we were like you'll never really know what it's like until it happens to you because my boyfriend and i had never lost someone that close to us. We've both been funerals but it was kind of you know at a distance and it was just one of those things where i wanted to say. Hey i know what you're going through right now. But i couldn't i could only say i can only imagine what that feels like and it didn't feel like enough that's kind of what inspired the title. That's my friend danny. Celebrate danny came over to hang out and we were talking about song. Titles and i was like i had the song title called until it happens to you and you know when i explained the concept to him really struck a chord with him and we went to the studio and danny had this guitar part. That was really beautiful. I love writing with danny and henry because of craig guitar players. I play piano. But i'm always usually more inspired by like a great guitar riff so i felt super inspired by that. And the title until it happens to you. Felt like it really fit with qatar part for me. Titles have to find their partner. I in order for me to write them. It's so much easier for me to write melody when i have a concept that i'm starting with. It's much harder for me to work off of melodies and then villain lyrics afterwards.
Waiting on the world to change
"What's going on everybody. You know who it. Is you know what time it is. It's time for uncle. Chebbi talks which have paid back at it again with another episode. Listen as you heard from the man. John lead not john legend little long day today. John maher. We're still waiting for the world to change today. We're gonna talk about something that's manhattan. News lately has been spoken about a lot and more and more cases keep happening and in the aspect of you know new change new president new everything. It's important we talk about it because it's it's something that needs to be changed needs to be brought in a couple of months ago. I an episode of black lives matter and it was important. We talked about at that time because it was a very controversial issue a lot of injustices going around our country and it was something that was not being swept under the rug. It was bringing you shown everywhere and this situation right now. Going on in the world is kind of under the rug. I guess if you want to say So for all of you who don't know over the last past three to four weeks. There has been an increase in crime against asian americans and asian american descendants. And it sucks to see this because you would think that as a country in twenty twenty. We wouldn't have to deal with this. You know i get it. Racism is apart stigma of this country. That's been back from when it was founded it's built into the system systemic You know i'm not gonna have the argument of truth as it happens but this is something that unfortunately stands from that could have been avoided really like now. People are attacking asian americans for no reason and today was another thing on the news where this poor girl. She was just simply walking videos on an answering. You can go look at it. She's being harassed by some ecorse. I mean you know. Typical man white male with two bulldogs. Young i her and telling her that her country and nobody cares about her and search spitting at her. Why what and accused case of this going on and on and on there's another case in san diego or an old man in asian man was beat to death be into death for no reason and people are saying why is going on. Why is it happening all of a sudden. You know why it's going to happen little sudden there's only one man to blame Really i i've been advocate of me liking him for a while now and that man is donald john donald j trump thing. He's office but it all stems back from an idea that he impl- implanted in the minds of his naive followers. Because that's really what they are. They're naive because they don't know better. i wanna believe and give them the benefit that they don't have that racism in their heart. I really don't People are taught that or they're shown to learn how to hate no one's ever born with it and it all started with the covid nineteen situation and you know calling it the china virus i get. The virus originated in wuhan china. The virus came from china but to put that stigma in time word countries already divided based on race situations. You know that the is already on edge with all that's going on with black lives matter the police and all these things going on and you wanna put this gasoline on the fire and saying oh well now. We have the china areas. And then you're gonna call the flu and saying racist things about it like at some point. You've got to be like dude. You gotta stop. You can't be doing this and nobody did that. Unfortunately it took an election to them out and for it to stop but it's obviously not stopping things are happening and people are gonna say. Oh well it's not. It's not that serious borough. Just forget it happens. Whatever people are like that no you know why it's interesting that we have to talk about because asian americans have been given to enter the stake for a long time just as bad as not just as bad as african americans. That's different situation. But as bad as the irish as bad as latinos and all this aspect asian. Americans were first scrutinize when they moved here to the united states and they were not able to find a job and they were forced not forced to work but they were given the opportunity to work on the transcontinental railroad which they helped build that entire railroad along with the irish unfortunately though the chinese asian all those who moved here denied get paid very. Well they didn't have any of the sources that you know that a white male will get at that

Why Michael B. Jordan was chosen as People's Sexiest Man Alive
"Sexiest man alive. Two thousand twenty is another michael jordan and just an objectively correct choice for just off the bat. I have to say listen. I both went through stints where we were bills ascent. I currently am which meant that. We brought his guests in whenever he would have celebrity guests on his podcast. And i cannot remember a male guests that made as much of a flurry among the wringer women. When he came onto the lot as michael be there were people. I won't name names but jordan liggins was sitting outside. She was like casually working outside. One day i was like weird. We're choice people were stationed across the lot to see him when he came in. It was a bath. Y'all i can think of two instances where there's gonna be s podcast guests. I like made the rounds pass. Bills office just right. You know why. Advisory michael jordan was one of them. I actually was surprised. I'm shocked he has not been named as in the past. This suggests easy choice. Like it's easy in the best way like he is people sector the people's sexiest man. I cannot believe this hasn't happened yet. I agree i. This is my. I was surprised about this choice because it was just kind of seemed to obvious where he had he should have won it before. And i kinda thought if he hadn't done it before then like he just wasn't quite what they were looking for which is wrong and also i was like what is he done this year because usually when they pick these things. It's someone who has really been in the news who has had some huge project you know it was the rock. It was blake shelton when he was like the voice. You know it was john legend and it's usually like tied to someone who's just been in the news a ton and had a really big year so when it was michael jordan i was like what was he in this year. However twenty twenty three movies so through all that could be during his done with. Tsa in his profile is he's donated to charities. He has been at home as all the responsible celebrities have been doing and like sitting at home donated the charities and being hot. it's just like peak twenty twenty. So i apologize to michael jordan for thinking that it wouldn't be him because that's all you have to do is twenty twenty and that's great happy for him. Each year grows more and more embarrassing than blake. Shelton was named anyway. Okay so let's go to some of the people we thought we're to be named the sexiest man of twenty twenty. So gotta give a quick shot to our producer. Kinda you can jump in if you'd like but i say who thought it was going to be. Which is dr fauci or shawn. Mendez goes on. I just the spectrum of twenty twenty runs from dr fauci tucson mendez. I really thought. I would something dr fauci as you were. Yeah amanda the moment. He had a bigger year totally. I was thinking. Chris cuomo john king obviously big cnn. Gal i thought it was joey king for a second. I was like joey king. That'd be cool. Little switch up kissing booth three. I don't Also thought. Jason derulo oliver tiktok. I thought chance the rapper. Maybe patrick mahomes the athlete not to flex on my sports knowledge. I'm dan love you. Who was in shits creek. Big actress doctor and a lot of these people were in the issue so we actually had a lot of good guesses in terms of who would be included because like we said they have a lot of little sexy participation trophies to hand out My predictions for the cover. As you know. I'm just to online and sometimes i think that the people who are talked about online are the people that the rest of the world is also obsessed with. What's actually michael jordan's a peak internet boyfriend. So actually i do. I think i was on the right track. I thought it would be a chris evans and pine both had a shot. Because they obviously chris evans very politically active This year and then chris pine has wonder woman coming out and christmas. So i thought maybe he had a shot. Kiat was a long shot just because he would never agree to this. I don't think i think he's overdue. He won a long long time ago. Let's bring back. He was also included in the sexiest happily settled guy which was category so he did get a he got he got something in there and then i said robert pattinson who i don't know if you would be into this like seeing repents and twenty twenty people shoot just seems like a weird fit but maybe next year when he's batman. I thought i was like you know. Let's just give it to brad pitt. Again twenty twenty. It's kind of a throwaway year or so like just give it to him again. like church. sure he hasn't had it in like what. Ten years repeats list over time over the decades. Sure exactly. he's still

I know if you're in recovery, like you're not supposed to be a non alcoholic beer because of the little bit anyway Well to see maybe they'll be.

Legend about the black lives matter movement, and how it affected his new album bigger love. John Legend welcome to the daily social distancing. Show is my pleasure good to see you again this our first time doing this social distancing era. This is our first time. Hopefully it'll be our last time I don't! I don't like this I. Like hearing your Silky Voice in person I feel like there are few parts of the frequencies that lost over the camera I. Don't like it and I'm sure you miss your audience to I. Think all of us as performance. Miss our audiences, and there's something about particularly with comedy It's nice to hear the laughs in. In person as you deliver the jokes and I think for artists is the same. We WanNa hear the crowd. We WanNa feel the response that they give us right away so I. Think we all miss that it looks forward to the day when that safe again. Yeah, and you don't to be honest. I think it goes both ways because I I've talked to some of my fans where they go I. Miss. I miss the feeling of other human beings experiencing something around me. You know like elective joy like I've been to concerts where half of the concert has just enjoying other human beings having a great time around me exactly and as much as we are doing these. INSTAGRAM. Concerts from home and you know a leash. And I did the versus thing is very different to feel the crowd and there's there's no experience that will duplicate that. Yeah, let's let's talk a little bit about that that some. Place in the world, being not just an artist, but being a black artist, being a black artist who's also conscious, you know before these protests began John. Legend had been on the ground. You've been fighting for for for changes in mass costs incarceration. You've been fighting to change how America treats black people. You've been fighting for equality injustice for a long time. Is this part? Part of the movement. You've been hoping to see for so long. Well. Seeing the folks in the streets seeing this multiracial multigenerational huge movement of people in the streets has been very inspiring for me. It does make me hopeful about the future, but also know that there's a lot of work that goes into actually making the change that were speaking out for and so. All of the Times in between these big protests are when a lot of that work has to get done right, and so and so activists or They're seizing this momentum in saying. Let's get in these city council meetings. Let's talk to our Congress. People leads organizers mobilize people to get out to vote for particular district attorney candidates, particular county sheriff candidates, and so that is kind of the everyday grinding work of a democracy that needs to be done for us to see the kinds of changes we want to see it happens when you're. Dealing with a school boards and zoning, so many of the things that affect the daily lives of so many people in that have affected a black and Brown live so negatively. At been these local decisions like? Housing Segregation and zoning and schools aggregation, and and who gets a chosen to be the police chief in how much budget goes to policing, how much budget goes to a the county jail or to the state prisons? So all of these decisions? They don't get a lot of headlines a lot of times and we don't think about them when we think about our elections most of the time, but this is where the decisions are being made, and if we're not engaged in democracy in that. That way, then sometimes we miss out on being in the room to make those decisions and having our voices heard when those decisions are made what I found particularly interesting, especially in your case is that I've seen a lot of the work that you've been doing you know in the space of social justice. What I was surprised by. is you announcing a new album? You know I was like wait when when John Legend recording album when when when was making music? How was he making music? One thing that I I'm always intrigued by is the ability of an artist to to exist in multiple spaces at the same time. Because I thought this album was just going to be about what's happening. I thought it was going to be like a corona virus. But it seems like you've chosen to go back to classic John. Legend and almost give us an escape from everything. That's going wrong in the world. Well, the timing has been so interesting because I I was writing this album in two thousand nineteen through the year I was writing early this year, twenty twenty and I was done writing the album by the time we all went to lock out and so This album is a reflection of where I was when I was writing a in all twenty, nine, hundred and early twenty twenty, it's an expression of joy of love, human connection of nostalgia of. Of My love for black music. Music is really made me the artist. I am That's really what this album is inspired. By. Of course, it's coming at an odd time. You know it's coming at a time. When everyone's been on lockdown for several months when for the last few weeks we've seem people protesting in the streets off the killing of George, Floyd, and Brianna, Taylor and others, and so it does feel a little odd quitting music out in this moment. That isn't directly responding to what was happening in this moment, but that's Kinda the nature of making our. It's a long process and. I will be writing music, and some of that will be responsive to what's happening right this moment, but it'll take a while for even that to be done and ready to be put out again and. What I do think is music has the power to lift people up to give them hope to make them feel that connection so that low, and I feel like people could use some more of that right now and I think is album. Has that kind of feeling? It it it really is. It's a smooth album. You know like it's it's..

Great recording of of his is song a camera. I left handed comment on on the recording of that song and yeah. John. Here's one things I did say quite. Where is that email I? Have it I'M GONNA. pull it up right now. Other, I imagine an email. Did I make that up a road if a real? resentenced to my manager and a that was with me back then. and. He had sent it to me. This is from. October six, twenty ten. and his email from bill weather's retail. Exclusive exclusive. Back here we go. Alex sometime ago, you contacted Marcia regarding John Legend's recently record album and offer to introduce our to Greg, one of the guys who manage me time. She probably attempted to forward. The message to me are meant to me quite possibly. It was doing one of those periods where I was in Marsha. Alex and everyone else overload and just ignored all incoming information for a while. Anyway I just found out about the John, Legend, recording yesterday in a much more interesting fashion. Having sat down to watch a documentary on Louis Armstrong the phone ranked minutes into it, and the voice on the other end says in this stilted tone. Did I waken you sir? Just as I was about to hang up on whoever this clown was. The voice said Bill Withers this is William. Felton Russell. Which of course was followed by the UNMISTAKABLE Kako of Bill Russell laughing on the other end of the line? He then proceeded to read me the titles of the songs on John. Legend album that he was listening to an informed me that I can't let right left hand. It was included in the list of songs that were recorded with the roots band for the album. We then proceeded to share stories of the people that had impacted our lives such as Jackie Robinson, Joe Louis Jesse Owens etc.. We continued on to have the obligatory conversation about Obama, and whatever else to seventy plus euros, olds of our might run their mouths about catch up conversations. An hour and a half later, having Persia sales of all current topics worthy of for the moment we ended our conversation I hit play to resume watching the Leon Song tape. As I digested the conversation that high adjust hat with my old friend. And Lifelong he wrote when the Louis Armstrong, story finished I went to my computer and watched obsession with John and the roots on you to wild, digesting the pleasure of witnessing the heartfelt and carrying interpretation of this song by John and the band. Band that Ray Jackson and I had written probably before he most of them were born. It occurred to me that it had indeed been a day spent in the company of Legends Conversation about legends with the legend, watching the story of a legend, capped off by the flattery of John Legend taking the time to revisit and revive and oats on written with a dear friend would actually gotten me into the music business, and who left us much too soon. Ray Jackson passed away some years ago. I'm sure that Rajak would join me in thanking John and the roots for their attention to this song, and congratulating them on a job well done since they put me in such a good mood, I will find it in my heart to not hold a grudge against quest love for making me sounds so ancient in his otherwise watering introductory explanatory comments on the video smile I was. was further sued by the fact that Bill Russell is really old. Congratulations to John Appropriately named legend for all the work. He doesn't education and for projecting a good wholesome image for us all to appreciate it I would appreciate it if you whoever you is would share this letter with John and the roots further. Advise you avoid contact with me in the future if you don't.

He's the musical uncle we never had. Emails on the. Eve is where legislated. Because every time he wrote one. He had all those extra little colors and flavors in there that you normally I'm just like. Yes, because I'm always like approving some you know like. Nice thanks. You arrive such such great emails.

We should start doing these idee live concerts, and then we we both are affiliated with citizens, so we started working with them to get the message out about staying home and raise the money for the world health.

We basically have finished the album for all intents and purposes right prior to everything happening, so there was just a few more like horns in random overdubbed had to do, but I had done on vocals. The song written, so we have music rate ago. We've been releasing a couple of songs already have more coming soon and we help to put the album out in June, but you know we were supposed to tour in July in in Europe, and then in. The US and Canada in August and September and we all know we don't have. Be considered the the the by. Do Method I. Mean you're in a position which you could be self contained. And just do it. For, dealth! Would you ever consider this? Hosting performances. Just you yourself alone at your piano. I've done similar shows like that I used to do we did this. All the tourists. Basically me, and a couple of other players, and was most of the night was just telling stories and singing. On the piano, and so I'm definitely open to doing other shows like Abbott I'm not putting people in in in in a room together right now, until we can do it safely. I'm not trying to get people sick. John. Legend show 'cause he knew about people getting sick on the verge. People getting sick doing all these other things and we need to get to the point where it's safer. People even gotta like that before we can invite them into our shows and expect them to show up. Yeah, I was GONNA say. I don't you know I know that. A lot of people were kinda defiantly trying to go to church. Don't do on day for Easter now. They I was just listening to the news from last night and Rachel. Maddow's going through the list of how many Bekker's of infection have been literally at Church alone. She was just talking about how they can identify these big clusters from people going to church, and they say I read another article they they were saying something about singing is more Why is my role? It's more viral than just being around somebody to. Pushing out your saliva, and all these other things and so it's actually less safe to be singing around people than it is to just be around him in general, so it's. It's like you can't be going to church in those circumstances. I agree with you, but yeah, this is killing me watching people's reactions, because most of them are just like you know. I got the blood of Jesus cover me and they'll be protected. Data, black numbers have come up this week crazy and a lot of our favorite cities, and that's a problem. It is and and we are. We are the we. All of us are equally susceptible to the disease, but and you have community has already under served in so many other ways We are more susceptible to get it in the worst of it to dying to having really a severe outcomes out of it. In my mind. I imagined that you. What's what? We in this house, we watch the daily briefing it's. We gotta know something. I've watched zero not. Anguish Naomi. Daily because I know you like Christie's rule is she does not listen to trump's voice. Can you will not if he's on the news even if he's, he's on a new of anchor that she likes, she doesn't want to hear his voice and we will change the channel. His voice comes on. We about Dr Algae down. I feel like I. Can read it later and Rachel Rachel Maddow. Summarize it for me well enough, so I'm like I'll just listen Rachel. It's to the point where now even? You know normally I will watch Matt Al Without Fail because you know. But I this this'll be my second week without watching yeah! I can't. You know I'm one of those people that like I would always not watch the news if there was a disaster or any kind of being with a prep was all kind of.

And it's a team full actors get an Oscar winner in the last one, and it's the highest rated book on audible, crazy crazy. But I wanna I wanna dive into your Michael Jackson thing about supporting people was we talked about this last episode supporting people who've done bad shit, right? The latest again is our Kelly thing, which we we were talking about, Sean. But it keeps going I didn't know it was like a six or seven part series. It just get you're just like, oh, this is on every night. Now, I'm caught up. We are living his life. John legend was on. Talking about our Kelly, and you know, being a sexual predator Bullshits.

Multiple events over and over and over again for years, and it's like and it had to be recent because they haven't been together for that long. No. And he put up the statement on Twitter last night and said, I don't know why they're sending me these things we didn't find out about Harvey Weinstein until the rest of the world did and he's a monster. And should be prosecuted the same way as Kelly, blah, blah, blah. Yes, you did know everybody in town found out at the same time as everyone else, then it's a long time. We all knew everyone knew. So like that bullshit like this hypocritical bullshit out of celebrities. Just reasom max level where it's like men. Again.

No fucking way. Any of these people were that dumb? And that's why it's dangerous territory for a celebrity or someone that's been in the industry for a long time to cast any stones because at one point you've brushed with or you've made. Questionable deals to get where you're at or whatever like you just as if you're in that industry, you need to be careful,.
