12:05 am
maybe she takes the one called "the mother lode" -- >> yeah. she takes the mother lode. >> jimmy: so there's a little packet of vitamins. and i have been for almost ten years now putting my own vitamins and various pills, you know, for whatnot, in these little bags. and my wife's like look at what they've done. they put all -- this is the greatest thing. they put all the vitamins in a bag. i'm like, i've been doing that forever. [ laughter ] i invented this. but since you invented it now it's all of a sudden something. but congratulations to you on winning that battle. [ light laughter ] are these for men, too, these vitamins? because i've been eating them. >> oh, good. [ laughter ] yes. >> jimmy: i'm lactating now. it's the damnedest thing. [ laughter ] >> balls in the air is good for men. why am i so f-ing tired, also good for men. >> jimmy: why balls in the air? will this help me juggle or -- >> so it's funny. this product actually came out of a piece that we wrote a few years ago called "confusion in the vitamin aisle."
12:06 am
basically, our readers were telling us we go and we know we should take a vitamin, we don't know what, we don't know which one, what combination, and so we worked with these four different doctors for each different protocol. doctors that we love. to kind of like make it easy. so there's a multivitamin in every one. there's a fish oil in every one. in the other packs it's sort of addressing certain -- >> jimmy: specific things. >> specific things. >> jimmy: how long has goop been in existence now? >> almost ten years. >> jimmy: almost ten years. [ applause ] you know i was one of your first subscribers. i saw you on oprah or something and i signed up for the thing. you actually go into the office and -- >> every day. all day every day. >> jimmy: oh, you do? >> yeah. it's really my full-time job. >> jimmy: there are a few items on goop that -- because i look at the newsletter. it comes on what, thursday or something? >> that's right. wow. >> jimmy: i've ordered things from there. >> oh, my god. i love you. thank you. >> jimmy: and vice versa. so anyway, there are a few things and tips -- i like the cooking stuff, and then i like
12:07 am
to see you on vacation. >> oh. >> jimmy: and usually those things are combined. you're eating various good things or whatever. but there are a couple of things. and i've written them down here. for instance, tell us about earthing. what is earthing? >> okay. so one of the things we like to do on goop is find kind of what alternative -- the alternative world says about like feeling good in the modern-day world. so earthing, i don't actually know that much about earthing and it came out of me not knowing anything about earthing but hearing about it. they say that we've lost touch with sort of being barefoot in the earth and that there's some type of electromagnetic thing that we're missing. >> jimmy: that is true. >> it's good to take your shoes off and walk in the grass. i don't know what the [ bleep ] we talk about. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: so sometimes there are things that you go oh, well, that seems a little bit much. >> oh, yeah. for sure. >> jimmy: squatting. squatting when urinating strengthens the pelvic floor
12:08 am
muscles, resulting in a flatter stomach and more satisfying life. is that something you believe in? >> i don't know. [ laughter ] i've never read that before. >> jimmy: you've got to subscribe to this website. that is true. that's actually on there. and i want to put this one up on the wall because this is an item that is up for sale on goop. and this is a jade egg. this is fascinating. tell us what this does. >> so the jade egg is an ancient chinese practice where women insert the jade egg in their lady parts. >> jimmy: right. >> to help tone the pelvic floor. >> jimmy: how does it help do that? >> i don't know. i need to start with a jade egg practice. >> jimmy: you've never been on this website before, have you? [ laughter ] what are you doing in that office? so people will -- you sell a lot of these? >> we sell tons of them. and women actually have had incredible results.
12:09 am
it acts as like a small weight. and so i suppose it tones the pelvic floor. and there are women who, you know, are very good at practicing this and they say it's good for balancing hormones and all kinds of amazing benefits. >> jimmy: yeah. and the best part of it is i don't know if you see but up in the corner it says "item is non-returnable."

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i'm glad to hear that. i was looking at you. i was watching this documentary. which i really enjoyed, by the way. so i'm watching your documentary. >> yes. >> jimmy: and there's a video, and it looks old, but honestly, i'm not exaggerating. i was confused because i was looking at it and the guy doing the interview seemed like he was from another time. but you looked exactly the same. and it turned out it was more than 20 years ago, that interview. >> yes. >> jimmy: what's going on? are you taking gwyneth paltrow's vitamins? what is happening with you?

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: whose idea was it to make this documentary? >> it was my idea. >> jimmy: you said i would like to make a film about myself. [ laughter ] >> yes. i said to myself -- i said to myself, because my belief is so crazy and i would just talk to god and he would let me know it was all right when i was coming up. and i said to myself, somebody need to get the cameras rolling on me because i think that my life and the things that whatever's going to happen could be inspirational. so i started shooting this movie when i was 19. >> jimmy: you did really in a way.
12:25 am
one of the moments is your former boss is talking about when you were like just a young employee and how he sent you to make a delivery -- >> but there was a camera there also. you can see it. that's how crazy it was. >> jimmy: but you were like a hustler. >> yes. >> jimmy: and i don't mean that in the typical way we hear hustler in the hip-hop community. like when you had a job to do you'd take the package, you'd run down the street, you'd run back and say what can i do next. >> yes. i really felt that if i could be trusted with delivering a tape the best, to be the best tape deliverer, that maybe i would get a chance to have the responsibility for something else. and i set my eyes on the record business and getting a chance to be in charge of the artists. that was my work. >> jimmy: and you built this empire that has obviously resulted in you -- you have many millions of dollars, maybe even close to a billion dollars. is that a goal of yours, to make a billion dollars? >> no. >> jimmy: it is not? >> no, it's not a goal.
12:26 am
my goal is to be happy. >> jimmy: your goal is to be happy. [ cheers and applause ] you've taken steps toward that goal in a spectacular way. now, this is from the documentary. this is a room in your house. >> yes. >> jimmy: this is the candy room in your house. >> yes. >> jimmy: it's a room just full of candy. >> yes. >> jimmy: why do you have a candy room in your house? how much pot are you smoking? [ laughter ] >> i mean, from a kid every day after school i would go to the candy store, you know. and then one day i would also walk around downtown in new york. as i got older, i saw this dylan's candy store, and it just took me back to my younger age. and i just -- i'm a young soul, and i just need some candy in my house. so i made a candy room. >> jimmy: you're like diddy wonka. [ laughter ] >> i believe i can make anything happen. >> jimmy: what is your favorite candy? >> jolly ranchers and sweet tarts. >> jimmy: jolly ranchers and
12:27 am
sweet tarts. which flavor jolly rancher? >> cherry. wild cherry. >> jimmy: that's the one i like too. how about that? >> and i like the blue sweet tarts. >> jimmy: the blue sweet tarts. okay, very good. i would imagine you have a lot of those in there. >> yes. >> jimmy: who's the most famous person that's been in the candy room? >> probably stevie wonder. >> jimmy: really? that's a good one. stevie wonder. what did he have? all of a sudden my head is going in a million different places. like did you tell him which candies were there? [ laughter ] >> man. i mean, the way stevie moves, he just go and he knows what he wants. it's not no -- he's not -- you've never seen stevie doing that. you know, like he doesn't know where he's going. >> jimmy: he always knows where everything is. >> yeah. he'll tell you what you have on. [ laughter ] he's literally told me. >> jimmy: has he really? >> yes. >> jimmy: he knows what the material is or what the designer is?
12:28 am
>> he'll explain what he sees. >> jimmy: oh, really? >> yeah. >> jimmy: and is it right or you just tell him it was right? [ laughter ] amazing, stevie, you did it again. [ laughter ] >> no. >> jimmy: yeah, i'm wearing my ghostbusters jumpsuit. >> no, he's right. he'll say you have on a blue suit and a white striped tie. >> jimmy: a lot of this documentary chronicles you putting together this bad boy reunion concert that -- i think this kind of gives a little sense of how you do business in general. >> drum roll, please. ♪ what the -- i do not like the lights. if i had to make a decision right now, i would change the rig right now. i like god light. god's light comes through, shoom. it just hits you like it's god's lights. i don't want the chrysler that
12:29 am
looks like the fantom. i want the fantom. >> jimmy: you want the fantom. do you have the fantom? >> yeah. my life has been something i think can inspire dreamers. and i've always been a dreamer, and i've always just wanted to be at a certain level of excellence. so that's what that's about. like when i'm putting my shows together the guys, if we're going to work, get me the best. get me the best because that's what the people deserve to see from the show. so i'm very passionate when i work and i try to also be a little bit funny to take the edge off a little bit. that's just really the way i work. that's working with me every day. >> probably the like saddest and most interesting part was where you talk about biggie and tupac and obviously what happened there and the east coast and the west coast. >> yes. >> jimmy: and when your tour came to l.a., something that would have been unthinkable back then. snoop and dr. dre joined you on -- >> on stage, yes.
12:30 am
>> jimmy: on stage that tour. what did that mean to you? >> you've got to understand, that was one of the biggest things to happen in our culture. right now we're living in the results of the hip-hop culture. so as crazy as it sounds there was an east-west war over music and people were killing and getting killed. and you know, we deal with that in the movie. it was something that was just so surreal and so serious and so unfortunate and so sad. but that's something that we've had to deal with. >> jimmy: and it's not like that anymore, is it? >> it's not like that. we were all scared. sometimes things in your life could just get out of control. we never wanted to have problems with each other. we were all fans of each other. and it was just something in that day and age that spun out of control. you know, we've all been friends ever since. snoop dogg's one of my best friends. dre is one of my best friends, you know. and it's just like it always should have been like that, but
12:31 am
sometimes in life there's tragedies so people can learn from them. and you know, this is god's world. but you know, the greatest thing is he put us all back together. >> jimmy: it's so interesting, this documentary. it's called "can't stop, won't stop: a bad boy's story." it will be available june 25th only on apple music. sean "diddy" combs, everybody. thank you very much. we'll be right back with ryan adams.

thank you for joining us. it was a political scandal that changed our country forever. beginning with the break-in at democratic national headquarters in the watergate office complex. ending in the resignation of president richard nixon. tonight on the eve of the 45th anniversary of the watergate break-in we take an in-depth look at the events that led to his downfall. >> the president is going to address the nation and presumably announce his resignation in a half hour from now. >> people will be at television sets and radios tonight to hear what the president has to say. >> this is the political crime story of the century. >> in just a moment now the president of the united states will begin his speech, perhaps his last speech from the white house. >> he always saw enemies. he always saw people in the shadows. and his motto, i believe, was, "do unto others before they have a chance to do unto you." >> that's enough. >> there was an obsession with leaks. you don't blame the leaks when facts come out that are showing
12:41 am
wrongdoing. >> no, no, there will be no picture. >> this is the funny thing. had it not been for watergate, i think this man could have gone down in history as one of the more significant presidents in the history of this country. >> out. >> we were witnessing the implosion of an american presidency. >> the president has taken his place at the table in the white house where he's going to speak. here now the next view will be the president of the united states. >> i have never been a quitter. to leave office before my term is completed is abhorrent to every instinct in my body. but as president, i must put the interests of america first. therefore, i shall resign the presidency effective at noon tomorrow. >> reporter: it was the scandal that took down a president. a plot of lies, espe naun, and secret dealing that shattered
12:42 am
how the nation viewed the presidency and the truth. it all started here, the now-infamous watergate office building, police were called to investigate a strange break-in. >> i was a sergeant assigned to, people called us the bum squad. >> what i looked like in 1972 was a junior charles manson. >> george town, friday night going into saturday, is always crazy back then. >> june 17th, 1972, there was a break-in at the democratic national committee's headquarters in the watergate office complex. this was the start of what would be the political crime of the century. >> reporter: at the center of it all were two men, g. gordon liddi, ex-fbi agent hired by president nixon's campaign to run covert operations. he recruited james mccord, security chief of the committee to re-elect the president. >> the plan was to get negative information about the potential nominee of the democratic party.
12:43 am
how are you going to get the negative information? a lot of people would say, breaking into the democratic national committee was way out, off the charts. yes, but not that far off. >> mccord would go into the watergate building and put in tapes in the door. >> it was taped so it would not lock. >> the hero of that night was a man named frank wills. frank wills was the security guard at the watergate office building. >> you found the door taped once and you took the tape off, then you found it taped the second time. >> it was something that told me that, you should check, not only check the door, but call the police. >> about 1:52 in the morning the call comes out for alleged burglary at the watergate hotel. i just kind of blinked my eyes, yeah, we'll take the call. >> i had on an old fogey golf cap, like a t-shirt underneath, trying to give me the image i
12:44 am
wasn't a police officer. >> if a uniformed car had answered that call, it could have been a whole different ball game. >> there's a lookout. alfred baldwin was supposed to warn the burglars if there's trouble. the police unit that responds to the call, they're not dressed like police officers. baldwin doesn't even notice them. >> our adrenaline is pumping. we get to this room here. i kick the door open. i pulled my revolver. >> reporter: baldwin was supposed to be the lookout across the street. >> he was watching a show called "attack of the puppet people." by the time alfred baldwin had notified them, it was too late. and they had to run and hide like rats. >> we're rolling down this hallway checking the offices on both sides of the hallways. making sure nobody's hiding from behind us. i was startled by an arm hitting next to the glass on the partition. it scared the living ba jesus out of me.
12:45 am
"come out with your hands up or i'm going to blow your head off." ten hands came up and came out and that's where the arrests occurred. >> the five burglars arrested inside the dnc, mccord, barker, sturgis, martinez, gonzalez. this was not your normal, typical burglary. there was bugging devices, tear gas pens, many rolls of film, locksmith tools, thousands of dollars in 100-dollar bills consecutively ordered. >> who goes into the democratic national committee looking for money? or looking for jewels? no, you go there looking for political information. and who wants that? your opponent, naturally. >> people weren't saying, oh my god this is clearly going to implicate richard nixon. it seemed bizarre. it would take some enterprising young journalists to ferret out the importance of the story. >> woodward and bernstein were assigned to this burglary as a matter of routine. >> editors said, we got this strange burglary. >> they were young reporters trying to make their way up the
12:46 am
ladder in the washington post. >> when you talk about the people who made a difference when it came to watergate, you talk about bob woodward and carl bernstein. >> they sent me to the courthouse where the five burglars caught in the democratic headquarters were being arraigned. the judge asked the leader, james mccord, where did you work? mccord went, cia. it was stunning. >> and they discovered that mccord was a security chief for the committee to re-elect the president. well, okay, folks. this was a political break-in. >> there was a notebook belonging to one of the burglars that had the name in it, h. hunt, w. house. it turned out to be howard hunt, who had worked for the cia, who had been hired at the white house really to undertake dirty tricks. >> you knew that this smoke that was billowing up from the oval office, there had to be fire
12:47 am
there. >> it's like the dylan song, it don't take a weatherman to know which way the wind blows. >> presidential increase secretary ron zoeggeler called it a third-rate burglary attempt and said it was nothing the president would ever be concerned with. >> richard nixon is obstructing justice from the begin. what would be known as the smoking gun was when he approves a plan to use the cia to blunt an fbi investigation into the money that the burglars had. it's clear in the conversation it's being done for political purposes basically to save the skin of the white house. the president says he approves it. >> woodward and bernstein had scores of sources. but there was one source that was special. a guy really high up. he was known as "deep throat." >> we would learn years later that deep throat was mark felt. number two at the fbi. >> he was in the perfect position to understand what was coming into the investigation, as well as what he could observe maybe from above the
12:48 am
