Apple's Jimmy Iovine shares thoughts on Trump (‘he's f-ing crazy'), paid streams, & more in new interview
Apple Music executive Jimmy Iovine graces the cover of this month's Variety, sitting down with publication for an in-depth interview concerning Apple Music, the company's original content efforts, his political views, and more. The interview comes ahead of The Grammys this weekend, an event that could see the mark of Prince's music coming to streaming services
As Apple battles President Trump's immigration order in several different fashions, Iovine offered his not-so-eloquent opinion on the situation. “The guy is f–king crazy,” he said referring to Trump.
One interesting tidbit from the interview is Iovine's view of original content. Apple has pushed hard to gain exclusive rights to music since Apple Music's launch, an effort that it has faced some criticism for in the music industry. In today's interview, Iovine explains that while he doesn't lean on them too heavily, it's something Apple will continue to do.
