Dr. Dre to pay $2M in temporary spousal support to estranged wife Nicole Young
"You are within the sound of our voices, and you have Been through a divorce, and you had to pay spousal support. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say You are not paying what Dr Dre has to pay. Dr Dre, who right now is suffering. He's in the hospital. I think he's recovering from a brain aneurysm. He probably He probably read the judge's decision. And that's when he had the aneurysm. Actually, I think they were. You know, it started before, but you could be onto something. Get this. He's gotta pay Nicole Young $2 million a month. He has to pay two million a month in spousal support. Can you even begin to it says temporary spousal report. Temporary is what the state of his bank account is is if you ask me, but $2 million For spouses support. Imagine you live a lifestyle. That requires you to pay your wife when you split off from her $2 million a month. You get the money, it says by Monday to cover her home security and other living expenses. It says she'll be responsible for her own legal fees. And they're back in court in April, so between now and then $2 million a month. Is what he has to pay. He's expected to make a full and recovery that they're saying from the aneurysm. That's the good maybe. Does he want to recover? As in 2019? Dr Dre is worth net net. $800 million this. How did he get to be worth that much? It says he's been because people behind the scenes make all the money. The people you see up front. Don't really make all the money. I think he has a clothing line. Then also think about beating. Think about Beats is not about the headphones. That's what made him the most. That's probably the most. He's probably got money and all kinds of different businesses. But in the music industry, it's the people behind the scenes that make all the money the guys up front like they think. At one point, Whitney Houston at her pinnacle was getting like $50, or 50 cents of every CD. Stuff like that, and they make their money on tour. But people like Dre, who's doing the producing, doing all the stuff behind the scenes, they're the ones that make all the money in the industry and then imagine the people that's behind him. What they're making.
How to Pick the Right Music For Live Streaming with Matt Schick
"Why is picking the right music still important for your livestreams. Sure thank you yes. So here's here's where we're at currently so there's a lot of great ways to produce great streams that are engaging in this new virtual world. The problem is most people still aren't doing that so we're left with you. Know we're left with this condition where we're just all so Saturated with three restoring ed screens on with meetings and family get togethers and family. Holidays in lung were laying in bed. Scrolling instagram watching videos of of our favorite influencers. So we're constantly looking at this stuff and it's getting old. I mean zoom fatigue was a real thing back in may and here. We are in nearly december. And it's the problem so the ability to add something that changes up the rhythm of people's day days is very important so they're used to watching talking and listening to talking hearing people talk about them so in order to in performing world. When you're building a stage show it's really important heads and flows so you have the not just the same tonality the entire time of wakes people up it it. It just it gets people gets the juices reenergized. So it's really important to do that. And music is a great way of doing so where just keeps the energy moving along and It just it it it takes from being just a monotonous talking which people just hearing all day as a little bit of Of of levity in some cases excitement in other cases the most poorly just a tone that you get to create with music so when okay so obviously you know picking write music very important. I love the ebbs and flows. You talk about their so. I mean there are times where people shouldn't use music on their livestreams. I mean. are there certain times where you know. Oh well you should use maybe just an interim you know an intro and then continued that throughout your stream and have altro that goes with it or should you have like sound bed. That goes plays throughout seem or. Are there times where you shouldn't use any music. That's those are all great questions. Yes for sure you don't want to overdo it with music. a little. a little goes a long way especially when it's very very delicate right like we're talking and we are the feature so right now if i were to play a song overpower us and he couldn't hear what i was saying. Were you were saying christian. It would be it would degrade the performance not enhanced the performance because i say performance. Because that's my becker the podcast so you. The ability to hear your. Your speaker presenter is above importance below that having a nice music sets the tone for what exactly is going on at the same time is is very helpful so fun example that i always use it. Sounds sounds silly but if you try you'll really see how effective it is just like film video on your phone of of your wife or your husband or child walking to the mailbox right and that's all you need right the walking out to the mailbox to get the mail. If you put a sad slow cinematic song behind that this thing becomes tear jerker i mean if you put it in black and white forget about it. You're you're you've lost your audience but it really can set the tone for just fills in the blanks and paints a story. That video only cannot do you put upbeat peppy music to that now. It's a story of a of you know your daughter going to get the mail excited for package to come and wants to see if it's there and nat music change alone without changing speed. The weights shot or anything else. That music can completely repaint that picture for you. So it's very important. It's very nice if you're talking about something very serious. Music isn't the way to go for talking about something with some comedic levity something a little more upbeat and and comical would really help that It's just a really depends on what the stream is but the run of show is when to use it when not you mentioned a couple of different You know use use case studies. I should say so. There's there's what's called the music bed. Music bed is as music that literally lays underneath. Or i say you lay on top of the music just like you sleep. Innovate and so The music is underneath. You just like beds underneath you when you're sleeping so its music. That's pretty low in the background. You still hear. The music is typically no lyrics. it's looking instrumental. Ambient sound that again crates. That mood as you're talking and that can go. If there's like ireland period is speaking or let's say you're europe demonstrating something or sharing a screen and you just fill it in and just make it a little more interesting. It's a really great Great no. You study for music bed. There's also it's called stinger or stings or some people need him. Bumpers in that can be like up next. We've got a really great guest. It's adam shark tank. But i but i borrow a bow and that's your stinger. You know just a bit of just an energy jolt so again people. Listen to you for ten minutes. You've got a fun. Jingle or sting that comes in maybe weren't throughout the entire show that people are used to that. It's on brand for you. Music great way to establish a brand and stick to it. Maybe it's a sting that you used. Throughout the entire event they'd be at the beginning and the end you've got to prolong jazz insurance altro and it just is it. All together into a nice cohesive package so yeah there's a lot of ways of using it overdoing it is definitely something you don't want do Service just really important to make sure that you're picking music at the right time and making make strategic choices and along those lines to do you think that sometimes People are like you know you hear a lot of times like oh i wanna play all this music. And then they're they're stuff's getting taken down and it's almost like they feel like if they can't have music they're like somehow doomed a-. What are your thoughts on that. Yeah no it's it's very important if you and if you're not aware of i'm glad you brought it up jim because you know you can't just play music that you're not licensed to us. And what is that pretty much everything you've ever heard before i mean if you listen to radio every single track you've ever heard on. The radio is is owned by another entity. A record label or an artist. You know when when you When we used to do our live show in cedars you pay their to organizations. You pay the right. You pay rights to There's as cap in this. Bmi and those organizations essentially pay. These blanket costs covers the Your ability to play tracks in a theater. So currently there's no real way where that translates super well to to live because if you're streaming youtube heavens youtube know that you paid for the rights to iraq harry song in fact there's been funny stories of actual artists to play their own materials. Clearly their licencee in many cases own it and they're streams are getting pulled down because sites like youtube and facebook and pinterest our end What's twitter periscope rather not patriots video yet. That'd be drifts yet you know. Those sites have robo scanners that automatically detect a copy written material whether it's video audio so they can in many cases. Just pull your stream down altogether Because they think you're using it with permission or many cases. A lot of us are trying to monetize streams so they say hey. You're not allowed to make money off of this other person's contents or naturally they pull your stream down and that could be devastating if you're livestream producer or livestream host of your of your own show. Have you strip pulled down as certainly very frightening so you have to do it. The right way and there are quite a few right ways of doing it. So while you can't play again You know whitney houston or lady gaga song because those are obviously owned by their respective record labels. You can't play other types of music there's public domain music and there's royalty free music so public domain music is basically a library of music that known space gates. It's used for us for one thousand. Nine hundred seventeen is the year or anything before that year Songs such as happy birthday for example. Anything was released before that are public domain. So you can use it anywhere. No one owns the rights to this Annual not getting you to would never pull your string down etc so you're surly allowed to do that The wider umbrella a portfolio of music. That you can use 'cause 'cause you're limited with public domain is what's called royalty free music this music that's been created for the sole purpose of being used by content creators. So many cases for all two free doesn't mean that it's free Although there are certain free royalty free websites but royalty free basically means you are allowed to purchase the rights to the news this music and typically purchased the rights. One time now you have access to use the music and while youtube still doesn't know somebody's telling you to have oh match. Schick in new york purchased the rights to the jiffy. Pop one eighty fitches a song. I just created morning. Everyone doesn't know that usually youtube does know. Is that jiffy. Pop eighty is a royalty. Free song that they will fly or poll down so when i buy the rights through a website. And we can talk about websites. I like to use but when you buy the rights to those websites essentially you now get the track and full quality without any audio watermark. And i can use that without being pulled out of my stream so

Yeah he's like I you just don't know and then she's like Oh God like real greet weighed about. This one's being twice Yes Yup just like that eighties as reference and then guy tries to leak. Woo Woo back very clear. And she's like no if I can't have diabetes and I don't want anyone and then at the very end she said alone guy shows up in this song plays she's like where do broken hearts go and and they go into the army love you. And he's like open arms. Oh my God you Whitney. We did it we did it. We did a guy. Oh my God. This is a great it Rom Com. We just run a rob COBB. Honestly we did though. It's a real good wrong comes real basic by the book formula. I wrote. Yeah come but there's like a little twist at the end 'cause you thought that lake she was just GonNa sit in a corner and cry and not have anybody but then then you know. Her broken heart gut swept up by seekers. Now the twist is always like I don't need any man so now we need to re twist it back until like she's going to end up with twisted to no. I'm totally codependent. Somebody to feel validated about city eighties. Eighties this is not a modern. They don't know here. We have the seventh consecutive number. One from Whitney Houston record exact. Clive Davis approach longtime friend. Frank Wild Horn one known for writing the hit musical jekyll and Hyde. Oh I know you don't care but it's it's a really good musical And he had him write. Something something for this diva okay. So frank contacted musician. Chuck Jackson a moderately successful RB artist fodder at least insult seemed moderately. Okay Whitney we're going to get the best moderately successful artists. Who has started the sixties? Okay thank you. Chuck came up with the name. Where lonely hearts parts go and frank came up with the music and lyrics about forty minutes? It was it was just had a majority of a complete. He and Chuck got together and they flushed out the rest years down. The Road Whitney would admit to hating the song and not wanting to do. I don't blame her. I D this is not my favorite. No no it's not but it's one you all now now in this integral to our concept is really integral door concept story here. She didn't feel any connection and didn't really think it had anything to say but clive told told her it was sure to be a hit so she recorded it anyway and here. We have clive being right. This is a Whitney classic. Everybody knows it live. Davis is really good at pressuring people into recording music. Don't WANNA record. Apparently the music video spark some controversy as it's surrounded Whitney getting flowers in a goodbye letter from her boyfriend now. The race of this gentleman is in question wasn't really a parent so it had black audiences accusing her strang more more from her roots and trying to please audiences and something. I haven't really gone into this album. Is She got a lot of lash back especially in the eighties around this album and I think even its predecessor for being too white for trying too hard to please that white adult contemporary audience. Like she wasn't and I can kind China Sea the complaint on that of like A. You know it's not a straight R&B album really. And I think people it just kind of looked at her and thought she might have been trying too hard to please white audiences instead of just being true to herself. Yeah I get that. Yeah but at the same time. She was of single female artists in the eighties. That was surrounded by men who were putting all this pressure on her way. They've wanted her to do. She didn't have much of a choice right off any of this. Yeah I mean she was willing to do and she was young and I think I think when you're at the when you're at that age your early twenties. You're going to do what people say do this because this is what's GonNa make you fall in. Clive Davis was a hit maker for how long at at that point. You're kinda going to do. What Clive Davis says? Yeah especially he was ahead of. ARISTA records wasn't So yeah you're going to do what the head of your record company's telling you to do you're GonNa do it and I think the whole thing about her getting all this criticism throughout the eighties about her catering to white audiences more. It's kind of why you do notice a sharp turn more into R&B in the night. Two Thousand Yeah you do. I definitely think this play a huge role in how her music followed after the late eighties especially because nineties were you know a real huge time for R&B. Oh yeah so it was fucking solid. So I'm not complaining right and she had real solid like straight up our MBA hits in the nineties food. I'm not complaining about that now. I I understand understand where audiences had complaints about her sound. Yeah and I'm sure mature. Yeah I think she found the middle ground in the best both worlds and once she became you know literally the best selling female artists of all time. She could say whatever the fuck she wanted and do whatever the fuck she wanted and have the final say in all of her musical. Her talent speaks for itself. Yeah so here. We come to the end of the album the last track. Oh I'm going to say that this doesn't really play apart. This is just the credits this is the credits. Yeah it doesn't necessarily play a real part in the concept album. This is more like. Here's here's this a sick tune to walk out of the movie theater too. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah it's called. I know him so well. ooh.
"whitney houston" Discussed on Rock N Roll Archaeology
"At the moment of truth. Whitney exceeded the success of her debut. Album and June twenty-seventh nineteen eighty seven. It debuted at number one on the billboard making her the first female artists to do this and it stayed at number one for eleven weeks so when you combine that with the fourteen weeks that her debut state at number for one she created the record for the artists with the most cumulative weeks at number one. Because that's twenty five weeks and I think those who are counting and I think the Only or the next female to do that was Mariah Carey. I think I don't think anybody's being her yet. No I think they have but I think it was Mariah Carey probably. It was a long time after I honestly tried to find it lake. And all I could ever find was like Whitney Houston the Muslim Rohingya right. Yeah I think I think cumulative not like career laying on no consecutive. So I think cumulatively she does I don't know that's what I read. Okay either way like fucking good girl. She started it. I mean honestly. She started though. Finally this album contained four number number one hits and that to the three previous from her debut and that landed heard the achievement of seven consecutive number one hits the highest held by any artist. I even surpassing the Beatles. Yeah that's crazy yeah. This album was a fucking BOP. Yep people were into it as you can see. Whitney is an album filled with accolade after accolade. PUTT critics didn't see it that way. Let's critics are are so stupid. Oh get ready shit here so much. Shade about fucking critics. They hated this album. Many any claimed the album was quote too safe and repressive and that it was just following a formula. Well Fuck those opinions because that formula went nine times platinum awesome so maybe they don't really know as much as they think they never do. They never do. Because that's the secret critics. It amazes me that critics even even have jobs because I mean they. They're always the exact opposite of what audience and the people in general and at this stage of the game. Right Ain't leak.

Houston, like it was I grew up listening to Whitney Houston lake pretty much every single decade. There was some Whitney Houston, and you know her dying to me was just so tragic and her music is just so beautiful and voices. Two, so pure, it's it's chill. I got chills. Like when she sings, you just kept these shows. Also the bodyguard was revolutionary. I didn't even think about that. Like and Kevin Costner talks about how there's that moment when she runs spoiler alert, she writes. For the thirty years well or. She runs out of the plane and she runs through him and she kisses him and the camera like goes around him. And he was like, wow, this is like one of the first times this moment has ever happened in a romantic movie. This romantic moment has never been seen before like this. Right? And that was winning Houston paving the way I know Whitney, here's to doing it. She lot of people don't give her credit for that. She actually was a pretty good actress was okay. I mean, I would say that she's almost Holly berry and can Holly berry tune. Whoa. Okay. Over about to close the segment and you try to that sir. Barrio bad actress just as.

I'm just pointing out that you don't think that making good is a good. I know I would. I just think that Halley is, I think she's very talented actress. I think that when you Houston is a tone today actress, I think that she's a good act. I don't know. I, I think how is putting the work, I think like losing Isaiah. She's dope at like, there's a lot of roles that she came out, like, what's that movie where she plays a crackhead jungle fever, is it that? Yeah. Yeah, she's great knit. He's okay. I mean, I love.

I saw a riveting documentary. Tell me about about s- it's called Whitney. So you saw that one in in? I saw I went to the theaters. It was playing in. It's been going for a while. So it was hard to find. There's like one theater playing it for like a weekend. It was MAs ING. You think you know, but you have no idea. This is the real life documentary. And like I thought I knew Whitney. I in someone who I've I've, I've made many a joke over the last decade or so about her. I know what's on this podcast. I used to love the mad TV's catches about her. I watched that documentary and I was like, oh, Dan. Okay, good to learn. I I watched another documentary on that HBO Dade. So that's why I was. I'm kind of like taking a might watch the other one with a little bit of space because it's my heart breaking. It will. This one I will. Tell you this though, about this one, the difference between this one, that one, this one, that one. This one is backed by the Whitney Houston state, which I. Boston eating because they let it all out there they did. So they're all in it. Her mother, Bobby Brown, her brother's our ons. They are all in it. So it is fascinating. It is fascinating and I going to share with you what someone shared with me before I saw and it didn't spoil the documentary for me. Okay. Okay. Yes. You mind if I share this charity, it's so mind being spoiled for documentary. Okay. Because actually happened. So I'm kind of like. You know, you could find that. Yeah, totally. And if anything like silly, I knew this information going in and then witnessing it, it was like a whole of level because then you're, you're seeing the story and their audio clips of her and her family telling like it puts the whole package together. It was a riveting. Documentaries are like boring and slow. This one I could have watched it for another hour to love it. I love a good thing. I am. I'm a fanatic for documentaries. So a few things about Whitney Houston. The I think in she's so apropos for this podcast one. Yes, she, I don't know if this was in your Showtime documentary, h, excuse. You get my pay time things. Oh, okay. I thought I was on Showtime, sorry, I. Premium, like you're like ill, not. So each meal is a little bit above Showtime. Oh, it is. I mean, what are the hit shows on Showtime, go. To see our and then no, that's on stars. I always think it's so interesting. Like how does Israel have all these like hit shows Showtime, which is like, trying keep trying, you know, Showtime, Starz, and encore. I will say that they have, but they don't got no power.

"There's a quote which literally a hated so much a screen grabbed it because I wanted to make sure that the. Bad today. I didn't want to. So Alan, you note that he says that he was not much of a fan of Whitney Houston, and I'm not saying that one has to be a fan to do credible criticism or films or be respected in your in your filmmaking. However, he says, quote, if felt like an interesting challenge making a serious film about somebody who was not taken seriously. This seems to be an incredibly myopic perspective on when the Houston I for one did not know any human being in the eighties or nineties did not take Whitney Houston seriously. So this seems like someone who comes to the party with a bit of a misapprehension of the larger narrative rockiest perspective maybe or maybe just like an out of touch, white British guy perspective. John Hume entry about Bob Marley, who would be the consummate person to point to as activists or mythic figure global power where there's no question of taking that work seriously contrasted with the sort of pop not critics favorite everything else that Whitney dealt with as we know through the career. I mean that if that's what he was drawn to write ain't Bob Marley. This makes me think this is a curious choice for the person to handle this particular subject manner. Right? I'll say that I, you know, as a little bit of counterpoint, I did get a portrait of Whitney in the new film in wit me as a person who is broken, depressed and lonely. And basically they do say, they you when you say sir, voices superpower, they say she just wanted to be in bed. She just wanted to be on the couch. You know, there's this footage of her watching TV. You get this idea where you know people say like she'd rather be in bed. Now. You want it to be a singer. She didn't want to be a superstar. She didn't want the an. She says this in. And now can't remember because I also. Doubt, her fatal. Live again last night. So I'm going to probably mix up what was in some of them. But I think it was doing an interview with Katie Couric and Katie. That's kind of left. Also. Katie Couric asks her what the hardest thing is about. I think you know being a star and she says, the hard thing isn't no success, and she says, the hard thing is the hard thing is thing. That's the hard thing. And I think that's the thing for Whitney. Like what? What people really didn't understand about when you first of all sent was insane. Like even before bodyguard, like she was clubs Joel, you know, and and he was trying around like a dog and pony show, and she was, she came from a, you know, black music roll, t family and all this other stuff. And she was incredibly young and she was incredibly protected and it was very much like she was putting on a facade from the jump, but she wanted to sing. She loved her, her voice. She loved that. She didn't want all that other stuff and that that that's I think what I think I think Whitney did show that, you know, do you do you and just to that point and I wonder. I know that we probably couldn't have in this exact moment, a movie that was or documentary strictly about Whitney's gifts as a singer. Because obviously what happened in the last ten to fifteen years spite Richon a your problem, which is this a little bit later, but bowed happened in the back half of a career mayor, public image. There was too much city, right? Do you think on some level that the brush has been cleared away now with these two films and maybe someone maybe not this person, but someone else down the line could do something that was a more conventional, but a documentary that really talks about Whitney as a musician as an artist, or is that basically completely off the table? Both because of the arc that her career went in. And also because the public narrative has just calcified too much about her..

"Explains why it is one of the great revolutionary performances in american music history that changed the way people saying the star spangled banner there after but also changed the way people understood it turned from a song about oppression and military might into song about freedom and i was fascinated by that and i thought wow so this there is this whole sociological significance to whitney as well as the giant musical talent and that was when i signed on while we're talking about that star spangled banner rendition do you think that whitney houston had the intentions that he describes to it yes i think she did i think but of course whether those intentions are of conscious ones or semiconscious semi articulated ones i think is is uncertain i think that's what's so compelling about hers figure to make a documentary as medals frustrating is that she wasn't hugely articulate she hated giving into she hardly gave any good into her whole life she didn't write any diaries and he books and he didn't even her own songs they express that that that the the the her voice is literally in her singing voice and so i've got to believe that when she sings that and we all feel the things that we feel about it and other singers from lady gaga to beyond say have basically stood on her shoulders in their own performances of that of that song i think you've got to believe that on some level she understood what she was what she was doing she might not be able to sit down here and explain it word for word to you but i think she knew what she was up to so you have trend is access to her family and a lot of the people who were close to her what do you think was the feeling on their parts their interest in participating in this kind of life store sorry i think for them it was very simple they had decided after after lisa simon juice talk to them a couple of times they decided that this was a good idea to make a film and at the time was right for them they had their own self interest of courses any estate would who's going to grant this kind of permission of this sort of access they gave it and i think they felt quite wisely that there was no point in making another kind of puff piece of whitney houston the actually they need to authorize a filmmaker who could come in and and have freedom of expression using the material that they that they could provide and using access to them because that was the only way that the film was going to have any credibility and and also you gotta remember that whitney's reputations being so tarnished over the years that you know even if i'd wanted to do it a kind of destruction job on her i wasn't going to be able to bring her any lower away so i think they wisely thought you know what we need is to humanize her and humanizer we need to lie somebody in who's going to really dig deep and and try and understand her when when you were having those initial conversations with key people with was there something that you felt like they were looking for you to say or or something that you felt like you should try to communicate to them i was very simple in just saying i i come at this with a with a an chewed the there's no point in making a film by artist and less in some way you want to celebrate the artist you also rate their work but i want to be able to explore and go wherever the life story takes me and i'm very happy for you to see the of couple of junctures into comment on it but ultimately it's got to be it's got to be my judgment as to what's in the film and they they went loan that i think that is they wanted to hear i also talked about i had a similar experience doing something about bob marley a few years ago where the estate are similarly kind of you know similarly tight control of of things and that was a project that.
