Sam Smith: The Thrill of it All review: A candid cry for help

Entertainment
Words: Stella Akinwumi | Subbing: Isabella Dawe His 2014 debut album ‘In the Lonely Hour’ expressed the pain of unrequited love, now English singer/songwriter Sam Smith proves that time really is a healer. https://twitter.com/samsmithworld/status/926358305584246784 Smith's second studio album ‘The Thrill of it All’ is about the breakdown of the first real romance in his life. In an attempt to stray from the mainstream material, you know the ones where you wait for the occasional drop, ‘Thrill of it All’ opens with Sam’s notorious tenor tone and basic yet strong piano chords.

It’s that time of the year again where a handful of ‘famous’ hooligans are thrown into a jungle to brag, nag and ultimately shag: welcome back I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! If Ant and Dec aren’t enough to tempt people over to the shameful entertainment and insect recipes that BBC Good Food leaves out, the consistently colourful line-up can lure even the most snobbish minds in - without fail. At times it feels like these figu

Film Review: ‘A Bad Moms Christmas’

Entertainment, Film & TV
Words: Tracey Popoola | Subbing: Claudia Jackson The second instalment of the ‘baddest mums in town’ gains some laughter- but not quite as much as the original The reckless mothers are back again with the sequel to Bad Moms, which received positive reviews after it was released in 2016. In case you haven’t seen it, Bad Moms follows a trio of overworked and underappreciated mothers (played by Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn and Mila Kunis) who decide to run away from their endless responsibilities to indulge in some inappropriate and hilarious fun- with the help of alcoholic beverages. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQPr0sCjau0 This time A Bad Moms Christmas shows these ladies having to put up with own mothers for the festive season, with Cheryl Hines stepping in as the clingy mother th
