PODCASTERS ADMIT ERROR WITH T.I. PODCAST
NEW YORK (AP) – Podcasters Nadia Moham and Nazanin Mandi have apologized for what they call a “knee-jerk reaction” to T.I. telling them he escorts his daughter to the doctor for yearly trips to make sure she is a virgin. Moham and Mandi of the “Ladies Like Us” podcast say they are not perfect and should have reacted differently. They had asked T.I. if he had the “sex talk” with his children. He said of his now 18-year-old daughter, “Not only have we had the conversation. We have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen.” He confirmed he goes along for the appointments. T. I. has not responded to a request for comment. The podcast has been taken down from major streaming services but can still be found online.

ROBBIE ROBERTSON DID NOT WANT TO MESS WITH THE BAND’S SELF-TITLED ALBUM
NEW YORK (AP) _ Robbie Robertson was all in favor of releasing a 50th anniversary edition of The Band’s self-titled record. He just did not want to mess too much with a good thing. Robertson says he remixed it “with the most delicate fingers you could possibly think of.” He says the album is like a piece of art, and asks, “What are we going to do, touch it up?” Robertson is proud of that record. He says nobody was making songs that sounded like that and it was “totally against the grain.” The new version comes out next week. In the meantime, Robertson has an album of original material called “Sinematic.” His songs also appear in the film “The Irishman.”
