This week on Pop Culture Convos our host (and resident #FreeBritney supporter) David Kwiatkowski is joined by former entertainment editor and Miami grad, Will Gorman, managing editor, Briah Lumpkins, and our new EIC, Tim Carlin for a discussion on the recent New York Times documentary, "Framing Britney Spears."
Denzel Curry has been one of my favorite artists for the past three years. The dude is brilliant, funny and always on the cutting edge. He hasn’t released a single bad album, in my opinion — that’s hard to do these days.
During a time when nearly one in five Americans and three in 10 Black or Hispanic Americans report knowing a close friend or relative that has died from COVID-19, it’s safe to say there’s been some trauma acquired over the course of the pandemic.
“Borat: Subsequent MovieFilm” co-star Maria Bakalova earned the title of Hollywood’s “Breakout Star” this award season. Playing the part of Borat’s 15-year-old daughter, Tutar, the 24-year-old debuted in her first Hollywood film alongside Sacha Baron Cohen, turning many heads.

Last winter, I saw “Cats,” “Frozen II,” “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” “Emma” and “1917” in theaters. My goal for the year was to see a movie every other weekend in 2020, and for the first couple, I was well ahead of schedule.

“Anniversary” (stylized “A N N I V E R S A R Y”) may look like the spitting image of “Trapsoul” at first glance, swapping the red album artwork with blue. In a way, Tiller’s latest project is an anniversary of sorts.
