According to her 'Billboard' profile

There's a chance that, amongst the songs Ariana Grande is currently working on, one of them is about her late ex Mac Miller. Rumors about the track began after Grande's recent interview with Billboard, during which she played writer Natalie Weiner some new music.

"When we made 'The Way,'" Grande told the publication of her first track with Miller, "I was like, 'Oh, wow, I'm onto something here.'" Weiner noted Grande's shift in mood when mentioning her work with him, adding, "Her face dims slightly; just before this interview, she was working on a new song, which, when she plays it for me later, I realize is about Miller." Grande does not confirm this statement in the interview and has yet to make a statement on the matter anywhere else.

Miller and Grande worked on a handful of songs prior to his passing, including his track "My Favorite Part" and a remix of Dangerous Woman track "Into You." Grande mentioned the rapper in her latest single, "thank u, next," but left him out of the Mean Girls-inspired burn book in the music video, instead, having a photograph of him on her bedside table.

I'm cackling

Last year, Balenciaga released bright red square-toed mules which bore a striking resemblance to McDonald's french fry cartons. Now, the chain has fired back at the designer, threatening to release its own version of the shoes.

McDonald's Sweden posted a photo to its Instagram of a person wearing actual McDonald's fry cartons as shoes, and honestly, if there weren't yellow M's printed onto them, I'd have a hard time distinguishing them from the Balenciagas from a distance. Though the post doesn't directly reference the Balenciaga shoes, one can only assume that's who they are trolling.

McDonald's version actually makes for some pretty fly slip-ons, if you ask me. Good thing the Swedish branch of Mickey D's seems to be considering releasing the shoes if the post receives enough attention. The caption of the Instagram post translates to, "If we get 103042 likes we release these for real," though it only has about 17,000 as of publish time. These would likely cost much less than the Balenciaga shoes, which cost $545.

Internet, do your thing. I want a pair.

It marks her third duet with Nas

Here are some words that I never expected to read or hear again: There is a new song with Amy Winehouse. But here we are in 2019, and Salaam Remi has granted me a wish. On Valentine's Day, the Grammy-nominated producer and frequent Winehouse collaborator (also responsible for hits like Miguel's "Come Through & Chill") released "Find My Love" which features rapper Nas and that powerful and haunting voice that I have come to love and cherish so dearly.

Representatives for Remi said that the Winehouse vocals were from an old jam session the two had. Remi was a producer on both of Winehouse's albums, Frank and Back to Black. "Find My Love" marks the third time Winehouse and Nas have done duets under the direction of Remi. They were previously heard together on "Like Smoke," a single from her 2011 posthumous album Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures, and "Cherry Wine" from Nas' 2012 album Life Is Good. Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, before they could complete production on her third album. My heart is still broken about it as she is by far my favorite artist.

"Find My Love" is set to appear on Remi's Do It for the Culture 2, a collection of songs curated by him. Check it out, below.
