Dr Dre

Dr Dre's doctors believed he would die following brain aneurysm

The rap mogul appeared as a guest on the Workout the Doubt podcast, where he revealed that his condition was so bleak that doctors invited his family to the hospital to say their "last goodbyes".

Dre told the show's host Dolvett Quince that he was in the ICU for two weeks. No one was allowed visitors, because of Covid. But doctors made an exception for him, because they truly thought he wouldn't make it.

"They allowed my family to come in," he said. "I found out later, they called them up so they could say their last goodbyes because they thought I was outta here."


Super Bowl: Dr Dre and Eminem pack in the hits at half-time show

 It was a show of wall-to-wall hits, but did too many hooks spoil the broth?

We've all been to one of those house parties where nobody can agree on the music.

You might hear the first verse of a song, maybe even a chorus if you're lucky, but it's never long before someone is fiddling with the playlist and impatiently changing the track.

Super Bowl half-time shows often feel a bit like this, albeit on a much larger scale, as performers traditionally try to cram as many of their hits as possible into a tight 14-minute set.
