TODAY's Takeaway: Jamie Dimon defends Detroit investment; 'Voice' champ talks victory

1. JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon says his company’s $100 million investment in the city of Detroit isn’t a PR move.

"We invest and develop communities around the world. And we've been doing this since our heritage started 200 years ago," Dimon told Matt. "So that's what banks do. They do it commercially. They do community development."

2. After living with multiple sclerosis for 40 years, Richard Cohen, the award-winning journalist and author (and husband to our own Meredith Vieira), sees the possibility of hope.

“When you’re in that kind of a situation, the concept of hope doesn’t even go through your mind,” he told Matt. But after choosing to participate in a first-of-its kind stem cell clinical trial, Cohen said, "Suddenly I realized, maybe, just maybe, there was some kind of hope.”

3. The latest “Voice” champion stopped by Studio 1A just hours after his win.

Because of a controversy over a technical glitch, "It was a lot more stressful night and morning than I expected it to be," Josh Kaufman said. "But to end up at this point and have it all work out is amazing."

4. In his latest movie, “A Million Ways to Die in the West,” Neil Patrick Harris plays a condescending proprietor of the town's fancy “moustachery.”

As you can see, some aspects of the character have stuck.
