"So. Do you to know each other? Okay, so my family and her family were friends way before we were even born, so we were always see to their at family gatherings when we were younger, and then we started getting very close in our teenage years. And that's when we find that. We were identical. Identical yes Indian. D- what was Sasha like as a kid? Sasha was very artistic like I remember when I would see Sasha's especially, because when we were kids, we kind of hated hearing about each other, because our parents were kind of against each other like my mother would always be like Oh. You Know Sasha is doing a plane school in her middle school and high school. And I, and then her aunt, who was had would be like. Oh, well, you know D- Get straight as all the time so. Tired of hearing each other about each other all the time I don't even want to hear, but what we started becoming a little older, and we were forming our own opinions about one another I just remember her being so bad cystic always drawing, always thinking always creating. So loving energy always the first thing you would see when you see especially when she was younger well still. You know as a first impression is. She would always argue she has always like loving, so that was how I remember her as a kid. Sasha! What was do you like? D. was very smart like I. Just knew if you WanNa, know something is I d, Goretti, she. She knew facts all the time, so my aunt was telling me that she has straight as I was very impressed by how young she was, and how she was how she was able to articulate herself and I'm like man animal. He'd been an artsy fartsy and I can't even express myself like she. She can, but. One of the things that I do definitely remember as has a huge heart, and she's just willing to help anybody she she's. She's willing to save everybody and that's one thing I admire about her. She's amazing. Do when you were kids. Did you think that comedy was in the cards for you? I knew that it was going to be in the cards. In some shape or form at come from a very funny family, everyone's always roasting each other. And then my older brother also was very into comedy, and there was one TV how I would have to, but he was watching because there was another option, and he at a very early age I knew about Richard Pryor Eddie Murphy. So I knew that I wanted to do it because. It was something that will show my humor, and also my phone very strongly about something where I wanted to just talk about some recently learned the vile that can be a sluice fast, but if you make it into humor, if you make it funny that everybody wants to listen to it. And Sasha for you know. I didn't think comedy Liz. Ever going to be something that I was going to pursue because I wanted to be a singer. I wants to be the next Whitney. Houston and I didn't like her, but I wanted to make songs and. Just, people were always tell me like you're funny like you're you have a for a funny personality or you not to make jokes, and that also stems from my family, because we don't know how to be serious and if anything. That's. Dramatic happens in the family. We always tend to figure out what's funny, but they also put me onto Dave Chapelle Eddie Murphy and all these. Great giants that I look up to these these days you know.

Paul Burston: So Many Men, So Little Time

"It was nineteen eighty-eight so I would have been twenty two. I think I finished university and I devoted myself base being a full-time seen queen and I was having a lot of fun of fun. There wasn't really low drugs around that I was not that I was aware of anyway. People get drunk on beer or steal beer. Sometimes I could not that pint of that so it wasn't that kind of like glass frontier. We're happy to be seen. It was all quite behind doc windows. And it was like ultra ultraviolet lights everywhere because everyone's dandruff. On their showed there's video. Scrimmage was a novelty a video screen and a bar and you can pay money to choose videos. We should be done for videos in those days to watch pope whenever you want it to always have. Don't leave me this way by Bouncy. Cb there was always on when whenever into Harpoon Louie's that was on and there was. I WANNA dance with somebody by Whitney. Houston they take me back to those year to that place there were different of tribes within that as well so that look you had that kind of Franken Hollywood's look should. I was pretty those Saturday night at half and that was I was the only night at Heaven which I actually came out by going to heaven so I came. I didn't tell anybody I just went to have on my own and stood outside and I knew I knew there was GEICO. Having everyone knew that and I've seen something in time out magazine I think it was And I went to long understood outside. I spiked up. Hair like friendly McCullough from Akron. The bunny man. I had plucked eyebrows and makeup. I think two hearings in each year on knows that as well and I stood side for about two hours. Watching these men queuing up. None of looked tore like me. They all looked like village people and number shirts and moustaches and I couldn't. I just couldn't go in so I said as a chain smoking I went back to Waterloo train back to Richmond and university again but I went back the next Saturday and the next Saturday and then invention third week I actually picked up the courage to go in getting a little bit closer and I went down those hallowed stairs and I remember that the sense of the smell which I didn't mechanism bustos was poppers. Didn't what he wants to start old socks and you walk into this room and the first thing I heard was this guy sort of swished by saying so many men so little time extra popular tune if the time and I just turned and ran out again because it terrified me and then the funding we went back and I stood literally lately with my back against the wall. Didn't talk to anybody. Stood up against the wall looking people as nineteen of so terrified and then eventually someone talked to me and then not wanting another with that particular. One just generally without something with that particular. Someone broke my heart though. Of course best bastard but to do it come out. It wasn't the best way probably be go to pick new. Only be terrified. Puts ME IN MIND TO SWIM? You start off just you in the water. Then you float. He's on and yes and above our and then you start moving around and I. I've always tend to jump into things too much so I have my local Gay Mitchell. After goes the biggest gates and in the whole world. The time probably to do it. Yeah just throw from seven to that. I left. I'd many many many great times than many great times then over the subsequent years and there so many men so little time. Well they were yes definitely in both senses because we didn't realize then just many men. We're going to have so little time unusual. Change very very quickly became quite prophetic. Really I was making up for lost time. I had fun. I made lots of new friends. Even if you didn't the names at least at least we were together. I'm quite choosy like that. Yeah I actually had sex with somebody wants waiting for night bus into Vulgar Square. Actually in the night in the queue of the night in the kids. Yeah Yeah Yeah by. The National Gallery was no one else in the queue tempted to join in offer offer. Some kind of the neighbors and developed square knows. Days was a real hotbed activity. Whatever would come from heaven or Soho in the middle of the week and they just be. So many gay guys queuing the but Vulgar Square. Honestly say people from that period for similar stories of just like getting on the different night because you fancied some but in finding you in Eastland and you live in Richmond. Just there was. There was a hottie on the and hoping that they'd give you some wet they usually did of charity for me. Part of the fun of those of that period of my life was that you'd go out and you'd meet people and you would normally meet meet a cross section of people. I have friends all different ages. Different backgrounds and sexualities and genders much more fragmented later and I think that the sex it can victim of own success in a way. Because there wasn't there wasn't the connections after AIDS happens because that was a huge thing in my life or knows about twenty five twenty six most of my gay male friends at that point. Were some years old me because I was I I wanted to learn. I wanted to own it someone to be my older brother and teach me and show me the ropes and some and they were the ones that died so I lost all of them pretty much and then I became an aids activist and got me involved in that and the for all of the for all the things that I would not change for anything but a lot of things about the eighty S. I would never want to have back. But there was a sense of community. People did pull together and they did rally and there were. There was communication between different generations. Different tribes within within our communities. And now it is. That's true anymore. I think that there was a break in the chain because there was generation that was kind of lost to HIV AIDS. There was the generation that we're impacted by it like my generation who went to flow of grief innovation space sandwiches very traumatic. And I'm probably not really over yet still in there some degree and then it becomes a very difficult subject to talk about so you don't talk about it very often and then the younger kids come in. And they've got half of this happens. They know the history half the time when you talk to. You have no idea what was going on ten fifteen years before they were. Because why would you know? I didn't WANNA die. Young either. Must be about twenty two when I first heard about it my boyfriend at the time. Read something in one of gay papers and said we have to stop using condoms and I was like. Whoa and then I'd heard that someone I was at college with who was a mature student and he disappeared for a long period. He didn't come back after this term. I then learned on the grapevine that he was gay. Had THIS BOYFRIEND WHO AMERICAN. They basically both contracted dictionary and he died really community rapidly. I wasn't really. I didn't know he might just name to say hi to billy and he was the first person that was. I that I knew of and then the guy was living in the in the tower block with who I was very close to and it was the real mentor of mine. I moved and I went to see him one night and He was he was all something ought to buy it. The whole evening was very strange and strained and I remember asking him about how he say. Seeing somebody recently this new boyfriend and I saw how things go with a boyfriend and he said Oh. What's been difficult because he he's he's a he's upset because I don't I don't have sex now that I majorly positive. And that was how that was how he told me. And I just put the spray face on and just get through this conversation. I was absolutely shocked. Devastated because at that in that back. They're not meant to death. Sentence there was there was no treatment and I remember sitting to this dinner feeding. Obser- your phone and then getting home on the train and just crying. The whole journey home. He became really really quickly and then he was. He won't one of his dying wishes as you wanted to go to. Amsterdam you know Vietnam and his friends. Most of them were straight women elected person to take him and I went. I took him to them on this trip and I spent the whole time. What thinking he was going to die on me. And how am I going to manage to get him what I do? I was twenty four years of age. Twenty five this. It was horrendous. It was very frightening when he was hospitalized to visit him and habit. Bobi helping with things. I remember one time picking up urine bottle onto the bed and tipping acid typically myself and being paranoid even though I knew deep down that this was not something that was good pose. Any risk to me. We didn't really know people didn't really know no. There wasn't much information. And this is before lady. Diana went into the AIDS. Ward this before this sort of stuff happened it was it was still appeared it was not really spoken about if it was spoken about hushed voices and it was very frightening time and he was a very very good community minded person he he was involved in the running of the building and everyone knew who he was he would chair meetings and whatever and then after he got. L. Someone Daubed on his front door house of AIDS on his front door and then he died and I was really in the state about it and reading the papers. There was a meeting happening at the London. Lesbian Gay Entering Cow Cross Street and Farrington. Which is not no longer there but it was very popular but place back then and there was a meeting happening and his act up and I I knew I act up was happening in America. Knew what actor boss I went to this meeting. I just threw myself into it and it took up my life completely for like three years and it was way of channelling the grief because in an over over those three years it was just one funeral after another. He was just he got to the point. Where you'd actually dread answering the phone. And I used to a Filofax that was an effects back in the eighty s. My member year just taking all the names out taking people out because people are just dying all the time even my family. I mean little bits but they just did not understand why this was any different to my grandfather dying because that's expected because he's fucking eighteen easily and he smokes these ill and mentioned me dying and late. Twenties and early Thirties. It's it's completely mad. It was it was like there was a war going on but only we knew about it was the why was completely oblivious and yet within our world which is very very contains. Gay London world. There was a war going on and people were dying all around us and we were expected to carry on as normal. What you have the you do that.

"No this totally works. We have have a happy ending here. Because she's saying where do broken hearts go. They go into the open arms of the people that love them which is guy the guy being. Ib Guy beat. Here's what happened so then in the movie. She tries to go back and he's like I don't know you burn me once right. 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.

"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. People are just going to listen to what they want to listen to because now we have spotify and Pandora and Youtube where people listen to their music. Most people barely listening to the radio. Right so oh really critics. I don't know how much power you think you have because now it's so easy listening music. Yeah I yeah. I don't really get like music. Critics exists anymore because now now we can completely follow your own opinion and also what kind of critics do we have right now for music rolling stone. Yeah no pitchfork. No No. y'All are cute cute. Yeah no I'm I'm good not listening to you ever seriously. However you know when pitchfork does like an album it's for a really good reason it's a really fucking good album like no? We really do like this. And you're like good as you should really help them but they just don't like anything else. It has to be an extremely exceptional album for pitchbook pitchforked. Actually like it pitchfork Pittsburgh. Oh it's just a pig. Writing Music reviews. They'll farm pig with a pitchfork. Yeah he's like our great art reviews on Koa Inc.. I like clone tree all. Can you likes a little pigs by Green Jelly. That's about little pick. Let them know the he loves that Song. I love that Song fucking. Let's let's take a minute but that's not what we're I'm here to talk now. We're not talking about green jelly nettle ever really the exact opposite Green Jelly. Probably the only time we will talk about Green Jelly. No I want to do an episode on Green. Well never all right. We'll talk for today. We're talking about quinny and how great this album is it is. It's really solid jams. Critics are dumb but maybe it's time we just take a look at the top selling album. The music speak for itself. Yes let's hear it so we are going to start it off with the first track which gets the shit started. All right. Gets every party started everything in the world to get started with this.

"That girl to sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl. Sometimes see if. Whitney houston. Tunes on my I tunes a Christmas category in she came up today on my way into work has I've been listening to Christmas tunes on my way in in the in the car, and and I don't know that we've ever played that before heavy she's pretty strong. But Houston was pretty good. You you forget what a great talent. Unbelievable. Vocal range. She had. But anyway, I heard that today, and I thought well, I'll just opened up with that I'll share that. And then I get a check today from new wave acrylics five thousand bucks and. So I'm I'm just as Tuesday's I can be it's so far so good. Everything's good. We're slowly. But surely engine our way to where we need to be before we get to Friday with the big bike drive, which apparently is going to be held in a monsoon. We contacted Riley fields yesterday over at the. At the Panthers. Because Sharon had sent me a notice and said see if you can get a canopy. And if somebody's got some sort of a canopy that we can use on Friday now to south Mecklenburg high school for no other reason, just so people can stand underneath it and eat food from the food trucks that we're going to have out there because it looks like it's going to be a monsoon now as soon as I say that it'll clear up between six and nine PM, but we're not counting on it. And I said a canopy may or may not be good. Because obviously if there's wind involved with a canopy can be more detrimental than it is helpful. But if anybody's got any way to help us in that regard. From a charitable standpoint. Let us know because we'd like to at least give cover to those who come out to watch the cars roll through. And as for those of you who are planning to come to give us a bike or toys or bring a check or something alleged to be a part of the whole deal, which is just a really turned into an event of its own. For all intents and purposes, if you don't have to get out of your car, you don't have to get out of your car. You can pop that trunk will take whatever's out of that trunk bikes gifts so on and so forth. I would still like to do what I do. And that is when the car start to stack up walk up and down the line and say hi to you introduce myself, and meet you and see your kids and meet your dog and. Google your wife. It all and I should have an umbrella. I don't forget to bring it. So consequently, if the Brennan Brel is over me.

"We're talking about here on the podcast, but the rights that were happening in guac, the watts riot LA. Okay. Well, the I forgot we talk about on the podcast, but the documentary starts right resumes. Riots are happening like when he was born into all that I but they had to. They moved her out of regular school because she was getting picked on by cashews lighter skinned. But you have a kid and then as an adult to still get picked on. Yeah, that's deserting laying what the hell. Like we need to stop policing what it is. What is black and what isn't black, you could be black and be whatever the fuck you are. As long as you are from African descent, you're black, and we watched just accept that and let that be that let it be because it comes in many different shades forms and colors aids. Rest in peace. Whitney Houston's, Russ and fees. I have, you know, the power documentaries. Thank you for the people who've been putting the Sacramento out because, like I say, I, I, I'll Eitan Tanya. I was like, okay, no more Tonya Harding jokes. And for me, no more Whitney, Houston jokes. I did not know. I had no idea about, I know, but I had to learn. I had no idea. We didn't use them was my first major, heartbreak, celebrity death. Because I grew up listening to her, we played her all the time, my black household loved Whitney. 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. No, I she's on par with like Megan. Good. See people enter the bus now. So now you're saying Megan, good actor could actually, I didn't say that she was or was it? 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. So you're not. She played Sarah Anne stone, you fast forward leaders. She beat shares stone and cat-woman saying, I like Barry, you've talked some stuff about Holly berry about how she's like, nice ninety would not put is I just would not put her on the same par as when he's using could get there by just want to. You know, how surprising? Well, can we, let's get to your partner. Well, just we're auto role that black women and I want to talk about certain black woman deserves our conversation me.

"I might know Shaun king recently posted something on Instagram, forget it was something in regards to this wasn't Nike or something about Colin Kaepernick. I don't know if there's I. I'm not fact checking. I don't know. I think I don't know if there's like a loss going into the NFL or something and regards to Colin, I don't know something happened. Check Sean kings and surround pay for more detainees. That's just good practice in general, Shaun king. Very good. His great. Neck area? Yes. Can we? I, I went to the movies. 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. I want to. I Whitney. She had a female lover. Yes, Robin, yes. And so then I put my own guide, so there's already that, so she's a storm. She cannot wait with who she really wants to be the HBO one. Okay. How about this? Okay, rugged Dixon. Yes. The drug addiction which actually I, even though you knew that I don't know our listeners news, the pause on that that like so this whole entire timely like look at what that does is someone's life when they can't fully be themselves is right along extended amount of time. She was with Robin Wright twenty years yet. Robin was go-to person, and she was getting a lot of shade from her family about that and she couldn't publicly.

"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.

"Clip from whitney the first authorized whitney houston documentary kevin mcdonald who directed the film had approved full approval from the houston state to go ahead with it he ended up interviewing about seventy people in her life and during those interviews he came across a pretty disturbing plane i should mention as since this is the radio and all you're gonna hear some conversation about sexual assault so just a heads up but you're also going to hear what kevin mcdonald was hoping to accomplish with this film because if so many people already know or feel like they already know what houston story what did he feel he was missing i think the thing with whitney is that she's an initiative and maybe that's partly why people are fascinated by because they can project whatever they like onto her they can offend cise whatever conspiracies go sip they like because in a way she never really answered back she never really provided many answers and it was the mystery that got me interested in making this film i actually when i was first approached about it i said no i'm not sure i'm interested in houston and the producers said will you just speak to one person where you speak to whitney's agent her film agent nicol david and i agreed to do that and when i spoke to nicole she said to me i really really want you to make this film because i knew it for thirty years i was so close to her but i never understood her and i never understood why what happened to her in the end of her life happened and i want someone to help me find out and that was such an amazing personal and emotional plea that i was intrigued as a person and fascinated as a filmmaker i would did you were you approached by whitney's estate or did you approach them no they they had already spoken to one of the producers called lisa earth's bammer lisa used to work the oprah show years ago and they had already done a deal for the music and for archive of whitney and photogr graphs and film and home movies all that stuff that they had but most importantly what they hit arranged is that i could make a film that where i had total editorial control because that's the trap that you can fall into making an authorized documentary is you end up being under the thumb of the state or of the star themselves still alive and having once experienced that myself i didn't want to go into that again so the family were actually great about than they understood why that was important why it's necessary to have i want to talk a little bit about whitney herself so whitney grew up in a musical family take a listen to this this is whitney houston's mother says he houston.
