Review: Khalid Looks Inward on ‘Free Spirit’

Khalid Robinson’s 2017 debut LP, American Teen, was a coming-of-age record that made young-dumb brokeness feel like the only way to go. At 19, Khalid had appeared on tracks by Kendrick Lamar and Future, and he was tight with Kylie Jenner. Yet he perfectly inhabited the world of an average high school kid as he tried to make sense of his messy emotions over Eighties-loving R&B tracks. The results reduced Drake-size ambition to the relatable scale of a dude who sang about living with his folks.

Free Spirit is out now via Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records.

A Reminder That Drake Left Some of His Best Songs Off ‘Take Care’
“Don’t fuck with me, don’t fuck with me” sang a ghostly voice. It didn’t belong to Drake, but marked his return. The light, airy, acidic words on “Dreams Money Can Buy” sampled the enigmatic Jai Paul, repurposed for one of the most known quantities in the world. The sentiment was clear: Drake was going after the best.

“And I feel like lately it went from top five to remaining five,” he boasted. “My favorite rappers either lost it or they ain’t alive.” His “favorite” rappers seemed

When She's Not Starring on The Bachelorette, This Is What Becca Does For a Living
Becca Kufrin went through a lot on The Bachelor - you know with the dramatic season finale, and Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s mind games - but now she's finally gotten to find true love her own way on The Bachelorette! The season 14 finale aired on Aug. 6, where she gave her final rose to controversial suitor Garrett Yrigoyen. But when Becca isn't busy accepting romantic proposals in the Maldives, what does she do for a living?

While you're probably already aware that Becca is from Prior Lake, Mn, and currently resides in Minneapolis, what exactly do you know about her career? Spoiler alert: she has a totally great job, but it's not outlandish like "Dog Lover," "Free Spirit," or even "WWE Diva in Training" - and no, we're not making those up. Just take a trip down Bachelor memory lane and you'll be reminded that contestants really will list the strangest things as their so-called jobs.

Rihanna Goes Braless to Dinner in Santa Monica—See the Pic!

Rihanna Goes Braless to Dinner in Santa Monica—See the Pic!
Another day, another braless look. Rihanna went out for dinner Tuesday night at Santa Monica's hotspot Giorgio Baldi and opted for a rather risqué look. No, we're not talking about her new red tresses (although that's a bold look in it of itself), but instead her white, spaghetti-strapped tank top sans bra! Although concealed by her relatively sheer top, RiRi's nipples could be seen through her shirt. That's definitely a brave look for dinner. But the "We Found Love" singer has been making some bold statements as of late, including wearing purple lipstick to Coachella. The product, which is called Purple Haze from the brand Free Spirit, which is owned by her gal-pal, sold out...

Rihanna's Purple Coachella Lipstick Sold Out Instantly After She Raved About It on Instagram—Get the Scoop!
Forget punchy pink and red lipsticks for spring—Rihanna's got a thing for neon violet. The singer posted a stream of snaps to Instagram with her new favorite lip color, and you better believe the vibrant gloss sold out in a snap after RiRi's rave review. The lipstain, by the way, is called Purple Haze from the brand Free Spirit, which is owned by Rihanna's friend Leandra. The bold purple hue actually looks really, really good on Rihanna, and striking in contrast to her new red locks. Yep—that Rihanna's been sporting? Not a wig, like we wondered when we first saw the star filming a music video with a mass of coppery curls. (Also in the recent redhead club? Amy Poehler, who debuted a new...

Moscow film festival to make major cuts

Moscow film festival to make major cuts
Two days cut from festival, competition titles reduced and line-up almost halved in the face of tough economic circumstances.

Russia’s crumbling economy has forced the organisers of this year’s Moscow International Film Festival (Miff) to make swingeing cuts to the number of films shown and the festival’s duration.

Speaking to Russian daily newspaper Izvestiya, Miff programme director Kirill Razlogov revealed that the 37th edition will run from June 19-26, two days shorter than in 2014.

While Miff will retain its three competition sections for feature films, shorts and documentaries, the number of titles in the main international competition is likely to be reduced from 16 to 12, although the Free Spirit documentary competition will still have seven films in its line-up.

Razlogov suggested that the number of films invited to screen in Miff’s programme outside of the three competitive sections will be slashed by almost half - from 2014’s 250 to 150 at best.

Although the global

'The Bachelor' recap: The women tell all and let Juan Pablo have it

  • Hitfix
Oh, aren't you looking forward to the public hanging, I mean, Women Tell All episode of "The Bachelor"? As Chris Harrison always (and tiresomely) promises, this episode is going to be explosive or mind-blowing or best ever or whatever the hell, but this time he may not be entirely full of crap. This has to be the first season during which not only have two women left, but the promos suggest we'll see more irritated eye rolls and female bonding than tears of pain and girl-on-girl battling. You could almost call this the girl power edition of "The Bachelor." Almost. Not that we get to the action with any speed whatsever. Yay, let's get Sean and Catherine on the floor. Very much in love, whatever whatever. Could not care any less. Oh, they had sex, by the way. "Quick fireworks," says Catherine of the big moment. Zing! Okay, that one
