Normani, Calvin Harris Team on New Club-Bangers ‘Slow Down,’ ‘Checklist’

0

Fifth Harmony’s Normani continues to prove her prowess as a solo star with a pair of collaborations with superproducer Calvin Harris. She has teamed up Khalid and Migos’ Quavo this year as well. Both of the Normani and Harris songs are clubby R&B with tropical tinges. On “Checklist,” she hits a bouncy pop stride with help from Nigerian singer-songwriter WizKid. The second song, “Slow Down,” does exactly the opposite of what the title teases: it’s a slow jam that builds up to a house-y dancefloor burner for the verses, returning to its slow jam status briefly for the choruses.

The 22-year-old singer has had a busy 2018 following the disbandment of girl group Fifth Harmony. Her Khalid collaboration “Love Lies” has spent 34 weeks on the Hot 100, peaking at Number Nine. She also teamed up with Davido to appear on the track “Swing” off Quavo’s debut solo album Quavo Huncho. “There are so many people excited for me, which I love, but that comes with pressure,” she recently told Rolling Stone about launching her solo career. “I look at my core fans and see how loyal, dedicated and committed they’ve been. How they’ve rocked with me from the beginning. I just want to live up to those expectations.”

Kim Kardashian On Kanye West’s Political Views:

0
The second episode of Alec Baldwin’s Sunday night (Oct. 21) talk show, The Alec Baldwin Show, featured a full hour with Kim Kardashian West, during which the pair hit on a number of hot-button topics, including the long-lasting impact of a 2016 armed robbery in Paris on Kardashian’s psyche, as well as her belief that it’s perfectly okay for a couple to have very different political views.

Baldwin, a vociferous supporter of liberal causes — and not for nothing, the man behind Saturday Night Live‘s Donald Trump impression — asked Kardashian how she squares her views with the MAGA-hyping ones of hubby Kanye West. “I grew up in a household where Bruce [Jenner], who was my stepdad, had one political view and maybe my real dad had a different political view, or my mom, and we would just always talk about it and be really open about it, and it was always OK to have different views,” Kardashian said of the clash of cultures between the former Olympian [now known as Caitlyn Jenner] and her late father, attorney Robert Kardashian.

Kanye West (L) and Kim Kardashian West attend the 2014 LACMA Art + Film Gala honoring Barbara Kruger and Quentin Tarantino presented by Gucci at LACMA on Nov. 1, 2014 in Los Angeles. 

Which is why, she told Baldwin, she let’s Ye be “who he wants to be…I let him have his own views and opinions even if they’re different than mine…I love letting my husband be who he is. [We] definitely have conversations if I don’t understand something in private and talk about that.”

In addition to describing how being married to Kanye has made her approach fame differently, Kardashian opened up about how the armed robbery of a reported $10 million in cash and jewels transformed the way she approaches being a public figure. “My life has definitely changed a lot in the last two years from that experience and just wanting more privacy,” Kardashian, 38, said. “In the last three months, I feel like I’ve come out of my shell a little bit more, back to who I was. I felt, like for a good year, I almost lost myself.”

West, who was in Paris for Fashion Week in Oct. 2016, was tied up and gagged by some gun-toting men dressed as cops who stole jewels, including a 20-carat, $4.5 million ring that was a gift from West. Though the heist didn’t necessarily make Kardashian West depressed, she said she definitely lacked the motivation to work like she did before after the scary incident. “It shook me,” she told Baldwin. “I’m totally a realist. So I know, you post on social media your locations, your jewelry, your bags, what you’re doing, where you’re going, your cars, your stuff. I would always talk about my stuff.”

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West arrive at the MTV Video Music Awards in New York City on Aug. 28, 2016.

Realizing that she was measuring herself by her things, Kardashian said the robbery changed her, which she is grateful for. “Even though it was horrific, and I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone,” she said. “It really did deeply change me to where now I feel like I can get back to myself, I can put on makeup and heal.” At one point, mother Kris Jenner had to convince Kardashian to get out of bed, take off her sweats and put on some makeup so she could feel like her old self again.

But the fear that gripped her slowly turned into a paranoia, leading the reality star who has made her private life a public affair for years to worry about being photographed at restaurants for fear that someone noticing she was out might rob her home while she was out. “I always had that thought in my mind of just danger,” she said. “I never thought about anything scary before, until then. I felt like I was living in a bubble, and that opened me up to so much.” The difference these days is that there are six security guards outside of the Kardashian-West home at all times now, as well as security by her side 24/7 when she travels.

Kardashian also talked about Caitlyn Jenner’s transition and when, at 25, she walked in on her stepdad dressed as a woman in the garage at Kris Jenner’s home, “and I ran in and packed a back so fast, shaking, and ran out and called Kourtney,” saying she as totally blindsided by situation, after which Caitlyn promised she would “sit down and [I’ll] explain this all to you.” She also credited Kanye’s vehement support of Pres. Trump with helping her to obtain a pardon for first-time nonviolent drug offender Alice Johnson. “Alice always says if it wasn’t for Kanye speaking up in support of Trump then she would still be in jail,” she said.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian attend the Louis Vuitton Menswear Spring/Summer 2019 show as part of Paris Fashion Week Week on June 21, 2018 in Paris.

Selma Blair Reveals Multiple Sclerosis Diagnosis in Emotional Instagram Post

0

The actress opened up on the social media platform that she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis on Aug. 16, joining the estimated 2.3 million people living with the disease which attacks the central nervous system.

Selma Blair has revealed that she has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The 46-year-old actress shared the news Saturday afternoon (Oct. 20) with her 648,000 followers on Instagram, posting that she was in a wardrobe fitting two days ago for her new 10-episode Netflix sci-fi series, Another Life, and the experience led her to the “deepest gratitude” for costume designer Allisa Swanson. “She carefully gets my legs in my pants, pulls my tops over my head, buttons my coats and offers her shoulder to steady myself,” she writes. “I have Multiple Sclerosis.”

According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the disease, which affects more women than men and is typically diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, is described as “an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.” With her diagnosis, Blair joins the estimated 2.3 million people living with the disease worldwide.

In her post, she continued by describing the emotional toll it has taken on her life. “I am in an exacerbation. By the grace of the lord, and will power and the understanding producers at Netflix, I have a job. A wonderful job,” Blair said of the series on which she plays a journalist named Harper Glass in the story of an astronaut (Katee Sackhoff) on the hunt for alien intelligence. “I am disabled. I fall sometimes. I drop things. My memory is foggy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken GPS. But we are doing it. And I laugh and I don’t know exactly what I will do precisely but I will do my best.”

Blair said that she received her diagnosis two months ago, on Aug. 16, and since then has received “love and support” from famous friends like Jaime King, Sarah Michelle Gellar and husband Freddie Prinze Jr., Tara Subkoff and Noah Newman along with Another Life executive producer Noreen Halpern.

“I am in the thick of it but I hope to give some hope to others. And even to myself. You can’t get help unless you ask. It can be overwhelming in the beginning. You want to sleep. You always want to sleep. So I don’t have answers. You see, I want to sleep,” she continued. “But I am a forthcoming person and I want my life to be full somehow. I want to play with my son again. I want to walk down the street and ride my horse. I have MS and I am OK.” (Blair is mother to one son, Arthur.)

Blair also thanked actress Elizabeth Berkley, who suggested she see her brother, Dr. Jason Berkley, who was the physician to diagnose her after discovering lesions on an MRI. “I have had symptoms for years but was never taken seriously until I fell down in front of him trying to sort out what I thought was a pinched nerve. I have probably had this incurable disease for 15 years at least. And I am relieved to at least know. And share.”

See Blair’s full Instagram post below.

I was in this wardrobe fitting two days ago. And I am in the deepest gratitude. So profound, it is, I have decided to share. The brilliant costumer #Allisaswanson not only designs the pieces #harperglass will wear on this new #Netflix show , but she carefully gets my legs in my pants, pulls my tops over my head, buttons my coats and offers her shoulder to steady myself. I have #multiplesclerosis . I am in an exacerbation. By the grace of the lord, and will power and the understanding producers at Netflix , I have a job. A wonderful job. I am disabled. I fall sometimes. I drop things. My memory is foggy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken gps. But we are doing it . And I laugh and I don’t know exactly what I will do precisely but I will do my best. Since my diagnosis at ten thirty pm on The night of August 16, I have had love and support from my friends , especially @jaime_king @sarahmgellar @realfreddieprinze @tarasubkoff @noah.d.newman . My producers #noreenhalpern who assured me that everyone has something. #chrisregina #aaronmartin and every crew member… thank you. I am in the thick of it but I hope to give some hope to others. And even to myself. You can’t get help unless you ask. It can be overwhelming in the beginning. You want to sleep. You always want to sleep. So I don’t have answers. You see, I want to sleep. But I am a forthcoming person and I want my life to be full somehow. I want to play with my son again. I want to walk down the street and ride my horse. I have MS and I am ok. But if you see me , dropping crap all over the street, feel free to help me pick it up. It takes a whole day for me alone. Thank you and may we all know good days amongst the challenges. And the biggest thanks to @elizberkley who forced me to see her brother #drjasonberkley who gave me this diagnosis after finding lesions on that mri. I have had symptoms for years but was never taken seriously until I fell down in front of him trying to sort out what I thought was a pinched nerve. I have probably had this incurable disease for 15 years at least. And I am relieved to at least know. And share. — my instagram family… you know who you are.

Swedish House Mafia will reunite with brand new music for a special Stockholm show in 2019. The EDM stars – who underwent a farewell tour in 2012 – will be back in their hometown for the first time in over six years when they play the Tele2 Arena on May 4. The exciting announcement comes after the group – made up of Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello – appeared at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Florida earlier this year for a surprise performance, which got fans speculating about a comeback.

A statement said: ‘That dream of seeing Swedish House Mafia return has become reality as Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Steve Angello have now chosen to put the past behind them and come together, not just as Swedish House Mafia but as artists, and more importantly as three best friends with a message.’

Speaking earlier this year, Steve revealed: ‘During summer everyone is travelling a lot, but we’ve entered the studio. I can’t really say much more.’

Although they haven’t confirmed a release date, it was previously suggested the album could drop in time for a run on the road in 2019. He said of a tour next year: ‘It’s happening, obviously. Not all the details are set, but we will be back in 2019.’

The band’s decision to reunite comes just two years after they said they were happy doing their own thing but were adamant not to rule out a comeback in the future.Axwell explained: ‘I think we’re all in our happy places right now. Having said that it would be stupid of me to say never [to a reunion]. ‘Maybe one day something will happen inside of us that says “boom”. But it’s more [likely to be] coming from us than at a festival.’
