Hi, Corey. Hey, I don't hear great. So I was called something to say, and it really runs the gamut of emotions and feelings. At the end of the second, we're going to hear a song called Happy Days. But there are songs on the album that say their names a black man. Once you decide to get you're gonna get into into politics and on this album and injustice How did you figure out what you wanted to say? How did you figure out which issues you really wanted to express yourself on? I just I just new for me. I was just trying to write songs. You know that we're different than the songs that are really on my previous albums and Because I looked at so many videos like you know, the 19 sixties and babies and things like that. Always start like Some of my favorite music like war games. Do you want that?

Did you find Ty? Did you find creative space during the pandemic? Um uh, I want to say yes. At some point I did beyond so it took a while to get there. I, uh, independent first started. I was I was I was a little down because things were going really well. At the top of this year. We had just finished a tour. Actually coming from Japan. Really? A few places, actually, right, Like I did worry. Manila believes that was part of that, Anyway. Um, go home, and I was getting into June, you know, could also have to be tourney and coming up with any crime just as you mentioned. And one of my, like one of my personal goal for the year was to get my body to look like half a little bit of Lenny Kravitz best. But this is the time of my life. I'm going to figure it out.

Some kind of opened up and I felt really good about things I started creating. And, um and, uh, things got a rolling so, Yeah, it was a mixture of emotions for me. I think for a lot of people, my friend. My guest is Corey Henry. That was no Alma's something to say. It's out this Friday. So you play a lot of instruments on the album and you produced it yourself. Why did you decide Teo to take the reins like that? Um, it's just is just another opportunity. I think as we talked about space and time, Tio had nothing but space and time it just figures and things out. Just what sounds good to me. And I wanted to do that at the forefront after like this record represents that in some type of way because I touch on all of my like heroes. I think you know, like Don't mention Stevie Wonder Marvin Gaye. And you know, Prince and you know her being, you know, James round on a level so and I like those types of sound. So that's what I was. I was going for it. Um and and and I called my music, future souls. So I feel like The honor soul music in on what I feel is to be sold. Is that going to do that and give myself a chance that what that means? Me and hope this record represents that Do when people hear it, Dad, like It is well about finger doesn't another do dynamic? Me. I meant to the top that you're from bed Stuy. How important is Brooklyn to your musical identity? Absolutely leg. Huge. Brooklyn is huge.

"Demonstrators there were protesting the government's handling of the Corona virus outbreak on for a second night in a row. Police fired tear gas to disperse the crowd since 2020 began their been demonstrations all over the world, Iraq, the UK, Hong Kong, South Korea and, of course, protests here in many American cities, large and small. We're going to talk about protests and police with Brian Kastner. He's an investigator for Amnesty International, and he led a team that looked at how police handled protests in the US following the killing of George Floyd. Hi, Brian. Thank you so much for having me. I know your team analyzed 500 videos taken between May 26 June 5th of police and protestors across the US Give us the headline. What was the interaction like? Well, what we saw is that you know, there was just violence everywhere. And I think that the very low threshold of police to use violence when they could have used other means or even speak to people. That's really what was incredible and shocking and also that the violence was very widespread. So out of those 500 videos, we narrowed it down to 125 specific incidents. In 40 states and the district of Columbia across those 10 days like you said, and it wasn't just New York and L. A in Seattle, it was little towns. Conway, Arkansas, Fort Wayne, Indiana. It was just incredible How widespread and pervasive it wass and what kind of violence are we talking about? You're talking about violence perpetrated by police or violence among everyone. That's a good question. So we were looking specifically a cases where police unlawfully used violence or used force when they didn't have to. And so certainly some of these protests were violent. Some protests turned into riots. But we were focused on incidents, for example, like in Huntington Beach, California, where protesters were laying down in the street. To protest laying on their stomachs, and the police just start shooting at them with pepper balls in that particular case, But there were number one of these where the protests were completely peaceful and whether it was because a curfew was hit. Or because police just decided they needed to clear the road or something where these peaceful protesters were met with violence and really just kind of extraordinarily Inappropriate ways. I want to drill down a little. And first question, of course, is where did you get the videos? And how do you verify their authenticity? So we are trolling social media. We're looking at Reddit. We're looking a tic tac, Facebook Twitter. These are videos that are usually put up by people themselves. Sometimes it was news reports local TV channels they were putting Stuff up, but the majority was what we call user generated content and then we go through a process where we determined when it happened to make sure it's not old to make sure where it happened, specific dates and locations. I mean, these are the same techniques we would use to figure out where an airstrike occurred in Libya, for instance, Except now we're using clues in the background of these videos to confirm that, yes, this really did happened in Richard Virginia at a certain time in place on on a specific day. Now you studied police actions against protesters in other countries give some examples because of course, what I'm getting at is trying to compare police response in a fair way. Absolutely So, For example, I was in Hong Kong last year documenting those protests and what we saw in Hong Kong. A lot was the misuse of tear gas, firing tear gas in confined spaces, firing tear gas in places where the crowd couldn't disperse. There's no point in firing tear gas in a crowd if there's no way for them to leave if they're trapped And we saw that all the time in Hong Kong, and unfortunately we saw that as well in the United States. What's different about what seems to go on in the US versus other countries? You know, it's been less violence, but it's been. It's only been different in magnitude and not in type. And what I mean by that is we were investigating in Iraq last year in Baghdad, where dozens of people were killed because tear gas canisters were fired directly at their heads. And they died in really gruesome ways And unfortunately we've seen had in the United States as well. It hasn't killed dozens. The magnitude is different, but tear gas has been fired directly at people. There's a journalist in Fort Wayne, who lost an eye because of that. And so unfortunately, there's more similarities than I think. We care to admit. Early on In this interview, You said that what the police are doing in some instances here in the U. S is unlawful. What makes what they're doing unlawful. Right, So our standard for unlawful is international human rights law and the U. N standards and so inappropriate use of force excessive use of force beatings against peaceful protesters, the indiscriminate firing of rubber bullets into crowds, trapping people with tear gas. All of those air, potentially unlawful acts by the police. Ryan Kastner is senior crisis advisor for Amnesty International. Thanks a lot for speaking with us. Appreciate it. Thank you. It's been roughly 50 years since the first big wave of Indian immigrants started settling in the U. S. So maybe it was just a matter of time before an Indian American musician made the cover of Rolling Stone India. But as the world's Rupert Chinois reports, the cross cultural fame comes with twice the potential for culturally insensitive mistakes. Long before survey tha Row was on the cover of Rolling Stone India, wearing a cape sunglasses and an attitude. She was a classical Indian dancer that growing up in L. A. Rao's parents got her a livin dancing instructor. She practiced seven hours a day by your teens. She was performing professionally before huge audiences in the U. S. And India and feeling out of place in school. You know, I would travel and tour when I was a kid, You know, I would. I would do all those things.

maternity leave was whether or not I was gonna join Jody on the one scene investigation or continue covering trump and I decided to take a day to deliberate over over that question and I had colleagues who were saying who are covering trump and said listen he's a story of a lifetime you'd be crazy not to do this like who's really gonna care about a sleazy producer in Hollywood and I even had questions myself about the one scene investigation at that point I'll be honest it was hard for me to conceive of famous actresses like Ashley Judd and Gwyneth Paltrow being victims being people who needed help bringing their voices to to light and but you know Jodie convince me like listen if the if if sexual harassment as happened to these types of women than the nobody is immune but it was a formidable task because many reporters before you seem to reporters I cannot let at The New Yorker had tried to get the story in content. that was that was certainly information that we were aware of we knew that there had been other journalists who had tried and and had failed or gotten stock and the we actually encounter that from from sources people would say why should I talk to you you know once it's gonna be able to stop this the same way he stopped all other investigations and so we actually felt like that was that sort of made the the stakes even higher than we felt like there was you know that there was a real obligation to to see it through and and work as hard as we could to to bring it to light well let's talk about some of those efforts that he took to try to block this story one of them involved the lawyer the famous lawyer David Boies who argued bush V. gore he was his celebrity attorney am he called himself Weinstein's friend what did boys do for one steam here he was Harvey Weinstein's biggest offender he was the attorney who came in time and again and helped wind Steen cover up conceals spin allegations of sexual misconduct against him and also evade scrutiny and so he was by once inside in two thousand seventeen as he was working to to beat back our investigation in fact he ended up signing a contract that one scene took out on us basically a hit that he took out on our investigation with black cube this private investigative firm made up of former Israeli intelligence officials who were promised a three hundred thousand dollar bonus if they could bring a halt to our investigation wow and so with this black cube hired by winds dean the contact as he say signed by David Boies what were they doing to discredit your investigation yeah and we should point out that one seems use of black he was first exposed by the journalist run and ferro and so so we you know we wanted to to learn more about it and see so you didn't know about at the time we didn't know about it we assumes that wind scene was employing private investigators it's. an unusual for powerful figures in institutions when they know they're being investigated by say that beyond the New York times or someplace else to to get private investigators involved but this was you know learning about plaque Cuban at at a firm that was like a whole nother order these weren't people who are just paid to dig up information these were agents who adopted fake identities and targeted not just you know journalists but also sources we are women that that one scene feared would go public there were people who called women including some of our sources saying that they were journalists working on stories and trying to extract information one of the agents actually contacted my reporting partner Jody pretending to be basically like a feminist who was putting on a women's conference and wanted to see if Jody might might participate as a way to try to extract information from from her so so this woman who went by the name of Diana fill up who's trying to get Jody to talk to her in this pretty laboratory described in the book she sets up this whole this website and pretends to be holding a conference and she wants Judy to talk at the conference but all of that is just so she can find out who Jody sources in your sources are. yeah that's that's exactly right and and this was once again a contract that was executed with David Boies who we should point out was also working for his law firm was working for The New York Times at the same time that he was negotiating a contract that basically paid agents to adopt fake identities to pursue journalists at The New York Times and try to manipulate them I assume the near Times ended that contract did the New York times yes the New York times and and you know David Boies at has said that he that he regretted not know he claimed to not know the details of everything that black cube was doing and and and regretted that he didn't pay closer attention and that's what he says but more broadly he submitted to a series of interviews for this book and told me straight out that he actually more broadly had no regrets for the way that he had represented wind Steen over the years no regrets not even hiring the by Cuban and all the stuff that they did nope. I mean what's interesting about him too is that he's representing some Jeffrey up stings victims pro bono I understand right so you know one of the things with this book is that if we had real weird realize that in the first story in breaking that first one scene story we had been able to connect some of the dots and since then we have done so much additional reporting that has helped to bring together other pieces of the puzzle including the machinery that was in place to try to silence the women and halter investigation and the individuals and institutions that were complicit in the in the abuse and so we knew that we're gonna be able to sort of tell the world about these findings and in our book but there was a period of time where we kind of watched as some of the figures who we had reported on an uncovered new information about from David Boies and also Lisa bloom who's another figure another you know one of the most prominent feminist attorneys in the country who worked for crossed over in two thousand sixteen to work for wind Steen you're both she and David Boies have received a lot of attention and in recent months for representing victims as Jeffrey obscene and and have you know have been really kind of waving the flag of victims rights and concern for issues of sexual harassment and sexual assault and you know in our book we were able to sort of pull back the curtain on the role that these two people played and actually assisting another you know prominent allege predator. with regards to Lisa bloom Gloria Allred starter you have this extraordinary letter email in your book that she sent to a wine stain first of all that you put this in writing is pretty incredible given that she's pretty savvy lawyer and she just outlines exactly what she's prepared to do to help him out and one of those parts of that that release stuck out for me was when she writes about rose McGowan who has accused him and she says I feel equipped to help you against the roses of the world because I have represented many of them they start out as impressive bald women but the more one presses for evidence the weaknesses and lives are revealed. and so it seems like she's talking about a lot of our clients first of all that in that memo when when we obtain that memo last year you know our jaws dropped we we we knew that that Lisa bloom had crossed over to work for one Steen and when the story broke as she. apologize to and has since claimed that she went to go work for him because she was only aware as of one see making inappropriate comments to women and that she wanted to work with him to help him apologize for his behavior and what we were able in the course of obtaining not just this memo but her billing records from her work for winds dean we were able to see in her own writing in her own words that much darker role that she played in this memo that you sent to him which was basically like a job audition in which she spelled out all of the underhanded tactics that she's going to use to help him under mine rose McGowan and then later other other accusers and she's basically saying that she's going to harness all of the experience she's had in working with victims to help him work against them ray but it also shines a light on her general attitude you just wonder about her professed. name but she's a representa tive of you know press women and women have been done wrong by men and it seems so cynical does she not believe them has she not relieve the women that she's worked with it's it's certainly one of the questions and we reproduce that memo in its entirety so that readers can ponder those questions themselves and see exactly what she said in her own writing at that time. it is pretty shocking I will say that I'm moving on to her mother Gloria Allred very famous feminist lawyer representing lots of women who. his man of of rape and sexual harassment in she doesn't come off well either in your box because she is orchestrating behind the scenes a lot of these and DA's and these NBA's that are extremely restrictive that some of these women her clients can't even tell their their mother or their their therapists that they have been sexually assaulted why did she do that..

And I think she's really talented. For someone that you should work with. It'd be at the grand talking about all the people that are going to be there. I'm like Mark to produce the song for her interesting. Like, yeah. Honestly, I think the reason is because that the new Miley song has is is just so veering toward country. It's not there. But it's like veering for sure. Yeah. That's funny. We've actually talked about doing something. And I think he's he's obviously great. So yeah, I'm down for any kind of a club. Even if it doesn't make sense on paper. I think that's what's beautiful about music is can just it can literally be whatever you want. So. You know last year there was like a lot of controversy about the lack of female representation in the top Grammy categories, especially so year later your nominee for Alan the year four other ladies not category with you among eight nominees. Do you think that the Recording Academy is kind of taken steps to address those issues or maybe as moving in the right direction in that sense? I think it's really exciting to see the music in Israel as a whole kind of moving moving towards fairness. But I also think that women are creating better music. You know what I mean? So it's it's a and it's a combination of both. You know what I mean like it? It takes women to have the balls to be unique enough to be noticed. But it takes two to notice. Yeah. And to be fair about that. So I think it's kind of a bipartisan role there. But I it's it's awesome. I dunno to see that kind of wide nothing. It's it's happening. Yeah. Yeah. I think I think it's. Yeah. In due time. It's to it's gonna. Of course. I I mean, yeah, totally Keith brought up something interesting the years ago.

Like really so finally in nineteen ninety nine it was like the year of the woman, even though the Grammies have been around since what it was. Fifties. I don't know. If there was there a question, they're telling a fun little nugget that I'm gonna like file away. I enjoyed it. Oh, Thanks. thanks. I did that was really cool. So we've talked a lot about Grammy's. But you are currently on the North American leg of your what a world tour, and you know, last year able to tour with your golden our songs when you open for Harry styles. But what has it been like to play these songs for your crowd? Well, yeah, it's it's honestly everything to be able to have room full of people that really connect with the songs that you're playing this tour has kinda blow my mind, I think that there's a lot of new people that have come to the party through hearing this album, and it's very it's very obvious to me when we see these people on we hear them singing lyrics, and we still do include a little bit of the old material because that is still very much me. You know, but yeah, it's been really fun to put together and the the songs just feel Good Hope they feel good to hear. But they feel good for me to play. You know, they're very I don't know kind of tranquil, you know, kind of blissed out. Well, I want people to kind of come and have a little bit of zen moment at the show.

"There's a bit of similarity, right? Yeah. So the vamp is when you take a cord or a couple of cords, and you just repeat them on loop. So that other people can improvise over them. Right. Precisely right. And in this case would true. Both of these songs is they're taking two chords that are one step apart and just going back and forth back and forth, and using that as a springboard for these just kind of wild almost Indian Ragas inspired improvisation. Oh, yeah. I hear that. Now. Again, you might not connect light my fire to jungle drains, my favorite things, but the doors. Right, right. As a direct influence, so nineteen sixty seven now is his light my fire. And now I wanna skip way into the future to check out kind of the the next I think important reinterpretation of my favorite things. This is by an artist who were very familiar with Lauryn Hill. But this particular song was never released. So it may be less Samaria to people. This is called black rage. On to. Person. Things and and suffering worse. These guys. That's powerful. Yeah. I know I I was introduced to this track a few years ago. I'd never heard before and it and it just stopped me in my tracks. Yeah. It's amazing. How you can take something familiar. Rework the lyrics and it takes on a whole new meaning. Yeah. And reform. It's no, no, I agree. And it's like she's doing something very smart here. She's taking that original minor melody, and she's sort of leaning into it a little bit, right? And creating these lyrics that more reflect the musical quality of minor and create this deeply disturbing ironic. Dissonance between the original Eric's of puppies, and Brown, paper packages, the very real violence and struggle of being black in the twenty first special the when she borrows the lyric tied up with string. Yeah. I mean that is a complete could not have gone to the darkest place that could go, but because of the contrast of our association to that song of happiness is that much more emotionally potent. Like, the imagery is so upsetting and powerful. Yeah. So, you know, once again, this nineteen Fifty-nine original has gone in so many ways, it's testament to one of the most exciting things about pop music is the way it reimagined reinterprets artifacts of the past. And that brings us to Arianna 'Grande. Right. How is she taking this classic theme. And reworking it let's spin it again just that first section. This knees. Lesson..
