Al Roker has ‘honest and candid’ conversation live on air – but viewers are distracted by annoying detail

The beloved meteorologist, 68, and his co-stars were joined by the rapper Macklemore on Friday’s show.

Macklemore discussed his new album titled Ben and alluded to his struggles.

Al said: “Talking about that, you’ve been extremely candid about your struggles with addiction and relapsing.

“You were writing this (Ben) when that happened. How did that change or how did it inform what you were writing and put into this album?”

But, social media viewers pointed out a distracting feature when Macklemore was discussing his health battles.

Two young fans were peering into the studio and seen waving passionately through the window.

Today viewers were irritated as one said: “I wish you would do away with the fans in the background.

“It was very distracting and awkward while talking about his addiction.”

Macklemore told the panel that he created content when he felt “darkness.”

He said: “In those moments of darkness as an artist, we have the potential to write something that someone else later on in life might be going through that same thing that they can resonate with and relate to.”

Macklemore said he hopes open conversations can help lessen the stigma surrounding addiction.

Al reflected on the conversation as he shared a post online which he branded “terrifically honest and candid.”

Fans rushed to praise Al and his co-stars on how they conducted the chat.

One posted: “It was really a great interview.”

While another commented: “Loved this conversation, the energy, the performance – everything!!!”

Macklemore closed out the show as he performed his new song “No More Bad Days.”

The U.S. Sun reported how Al looked dapper as he led Hudson River Park Friends’ 7th Annual Playground Committee Luncheon on Friday.

He looked smart on the red carpet in a dark suit, blue-and-silver striped tie, and blue handkerchief in his jacket pocket.

But, fans have called on the bubbly meteorologist to slow down following his recent health battles.

Al was hospitalized twice last year after suffering blood clots.

He said it was “good to be alive” after his health scare.

His wife Deborah Roberts opened up about Al’s hospitalization during an appearance on Conversations Above The Noise with Maria.

She admitted: “We really did think we were going to lose him.”

Deborah said Al was a very sick man and described his hospital trips as “terrifying at every minute.”

She said: “It was like the worst roller coaster ride you have ever been on.”
