La La Land Review

Extraordinary

After storming awards season with Whiplash two years ago, writer-director Damien Chazelle returns with something even better: an original movie musical that is shamelessly enjoyable. It somehow manages to be a feel-good triumph as well as a darkly honest exploration of the quest for fame and romance in Los Angeles. And with fantastic songs, colourful choreography and already iconic performances from Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, this is pure cinematic joy.

It opens in a traffic jam on a warm winter's day, where aspiring actress Mia (Stone) first encounters struggling jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling). They meet a couple more times before they begin to share the troubles they are facing trying to make their dreams come true. As romance blossoms, Mia urges Sebastian to go for his passion project to create a proper jazz bar, while Sebastian supports Mia's attempt to write a one-woman show to display her talents. But there are huge pressures to endure and obstacles to overcome as this city pushes them to compromise.

Chazelle establishes the film's musical tone from the opening moment, a breathtaking single-take full-on musical number on a freeway flyover. And the movie only gets better from there, deepening the two central characters as every scene is packed with hilarious comedy, honest romance and wrenching drama. Gosling and especially Stone are perfect in these roles, drawing on their already established chemistry as they add singing and dancing to their repertoires.

Christine Teigen John Legend

Chrissy Teigen has admitted that part of the reason she wants to get pregnant is so that she has an excuse to put on weight. The 29 year old model, who is married to soul singer John Legend, has said that it would be a good reason to enjoy some of the food she mustn't eat if she wants to stay slim.

The star of ‘Lip Sync Battle’ spoke to the UK edition of Women’s Health, for whose cover photograph she also posed nude, and spoke about her ambitions to start a family. “I'd love to have an excuse to be bigger,” she revealed. “People will know as soon as I'm pregnant because I'll stop drinking.”
