Joe Jonas ‘upset’ with Gigi Hadid

David Foster Steps Out in L.A. for the First Time Since Announcing Divorce from Yolanda.

Mom knows best! Since his split from the 20-year-old model, the 26-year-old singer doesn’t want to rush into a new relationship and is planning on focusing on his work, family and friends.David, a Grammy-winning songwriter and record producer, was among several celebrities who gathered to support Cindy Crawford and her new book Becoming.

The supermodel (20) and former One Direction singer (22) have been hailed as Young Hollywood’s hottest new couples since first hooking up last month, but her closest friends are said to be worried about the new relationship. Gigi is fresh from a split with on/off boyfriend Joe Jonas, while Zayn ended his engagement to Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards in August, reportedly via text message. The two were spotted getting cozy in West Hollywood on Sunday, Nov. 22, after Hadid, who split from Joe Jonas earlier last month, attended the 2015 American Music Awards on Sunday, Nov. 22. “He thinks she’s so hot,” the insider revealed. “He thinks she’s sweet, too. We’ve shared nine beautiful and joyous years together. “During that time we experienced love, friendship and the inevitable challenges that come with managing a marriage, careers, blended families and health issues.” “We’ve grown apart but my love & respect for @officialdfoster is still the same,” she tweeted a day later. “he’s been very good 2 me so pls don’t judge our journey!” At the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premiere party Thursday, she told PEOPLE that it was her children – Gigi, 20, Bella, 19 and Anwar Hadid, 16, – who were supporting her after the split.

Adding more fuel to the fire is the fact that Taylor Swift (Gigi’s squad leader) and her boyfriend Calvin Harris don’t get along with the British singer and have already exchanged words on Twitter. But Foster isn’t letting the divorce deter her from her goal of ridding herself of Lyme disease, and she’s also not anxious about her “RHOBH” cast mates who have doubted the state of her health. So, although the 2015 test turned into a sort of farewell tour, it seemed a timely coincidence to compare the current version with the new CX-9 that is yet to come.

But the CX-9, waiting for its replacement, deserves a little consideration as the biggest crossover in Mazda’s CUV lineup, the flagship, so to speak, even though it has never enjoyed the popularity or sales numbers of its smaller siblings. The CX-9 first debuted as a 2007 model and, although it has undergone several makeovers since, it has carried on with the same basic bones, starting with a CD3 platform and the MZI 3.7-litre V6 engine, both items originally sourced from Ford. Let’s begin with the bodywork, one of the first examples of Mazda’s KODO styling to actually roll off the assembly line, coming complete with all the requisite styling cues – a long hood, sleek greenhouse, short overhangs and big wheels. It’s still a handsome machine, especially in any kind of a silver shade, with the play of light and shadow emphasizing the CX-9’s muscularity and curvaceous contours. The accommodations are simple, upscale and kind of old school, with electro-mechanical gauges and old-fashioned radio knobs, just the right kind of classic, easy-to-operate instrumentation to comfort an old Luddite like me.

But even the 2015 version, available in front-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel-drive (AWD) and in GS or GT trim levels in Canada, offers choices of modern technologies including Bluetooth Hands-Free infotainment and communication systems, Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, a Rear View camera displayed on a 5.8-inch audio display touchscreen, a BOSE sound system and more. Under the hood, the 3.7-litre DOHC V6 makes an impressive 273 hp and 270 lb/ft of torque, enough to satisfactorily pull you up to speed, even offering a respectable tow rating of 1,588 kg (3,500 lb).

Mileage however is not so impressive, with a rating of 14.3/10.6L/100km (city/hwy) in my AWD test vehicle, with my real world results averaging out to 14.7L/100km (comb). I may be referring to the new, second generation model that debuted in L.A. as the 2016 CX-9 but, frankly, Mazda Canada is not sure whether it will officially be named a 2016 model or labelled as a 2017 version. The short overhangs have gotten even shorter with a 30 mm (1.2 in) reduction in overall length, even while the wheelbase has been stretched by 55 mm (2.2 in).

That weight loss allowed designers to add 24 kg (53 lb) of sound deadening floor treatment material, about ten times more than used in the current model, resulting in a 12 per cent decrease on overall cabin noise. And the reduction in weight also made Mazda designers think twice about the current panoramic glass roof trend, deciding against it and the corresponding negative effect on body rigidity. Regular crossover customers will probably happily trade off wheel-spinning hysteria for simple utility and more normalized fuel efficiency and performance.

Those same customers will also be able to choose from two different CX-9s over the coming months – the current V6-powered model or the new Skyactiv version coming next spring.
