Laughter is the Best Medicine


– Hey, guys, welcome back! This guy I’ve got with me right now is an incredible musician who has played with Maroon
5 for the last decade and who also just won a
Grammy for best R&B song for his work on his album, “Paul.” Please join me in welcoming PJ Morton! (audience cheering) – Thank you, thank you. – So it is awesome to see you again. – Yes. – ‘Cause we got to be on the same tour. – Yes, amazing.
– And I remember telling Adam, I was like, “Who is that guy opening? “And he’s playing with you.” I was like, “He is insane!”
– Yeah. – You are so talented.
– Thank you, thank you. – I mean, you’ve just
won your second Grammy. Was this a little cooler ’cause I heard your
little girl was with you. – Yeah, that made the whole experience– – Totally.
– Yeah, amazing. I had my little seven-year-old
daughter, Peyton, with me and we happened to win. – Yeah.
– Because I’ve been there when I didn’t win.
– Me too. – It doesn’t feel great.
– Yeah. It feels all right to me.
– Yeah, it’s fine. – You know what, I’m here. – It’s true, it’s true, it’s true. But I got to bring her up there and give her the experience.
– Yeah. – Say my speech with my
little girl right next to me. So that made it so special. – How proud she must be.
– Yeah. – That’s so cool.
– Yeah, yeah, yeah. – All right, so what’s the
story behind your latest album? You’ve decided to caul it “Paul.” And you’ve always gone by PJ, right? – Yeah, I have. I’ve been called PJ my whole life. My family’s always called me PJ and I wanted to make sure I went into this not trying to chase anything but being the purest form of who I am.
– True to yourself. – And I feel like I came
into the world as Paul and I felt like it was the perfect title for the vulnerability that I wanted to.
– It’s intimate. – Yeah, that I wanted to–
– I like that you personalized it.
– Yeah. For sure.
– It makes it special. Especially for fans who are like, “Oh, this is really him.”
– Yeah, yeah, yeah. – “He used his real name.”
– Exactly, that’s right. – Yeah, that’s awesome. Yes. (laughing) So performing “Ready”
