Because, of course, she does

Blue Ivy Carter is a Capricorn and, therefore, is superior (at least in her mind) to anyone she comes across. Add the fact that her parents are Beyoncé and Jay Z, and her superiority complex skyrockets. Which is why nobody should be surprised that, at just six years old, the young Carter has both a personal stylist and shopper.

Manuel A. Mendez has been documenting Blue’s outfits on his Instagram for some time now, but Women’s Wear Daily confirmed Thursday that he is, indeed, the man behind her killer style. According to the article, Mendez joined Parkwood Entertainment in 2009 and is also one of Beyoncé’s personal assistants. He, most recently, styled Blue for the Wearable Art Gala, the Grammy Awards, as well as Jay Z’s “Family Feud” video. Other than that, though, he's pretty cloaked in mystery.

And though the news isn’t necessarily shocking, we do have a ton of questions. Like, what’s it like to work with the six-year-old? Does she have a favorite designer? Has he been dressing her since she was born? How much bigger is her closet than ours?

We won’t hold our breath for answers.

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.

"In the midst of chaos there's opportunity"

Following the travesty that was Fyre Festival, Ja Rule wants to take another stab at creating a music festival. Good luck getting that off the ground.

On Thursday, the rapper spoke to TMZ, where he revealed that he was planning to relaunch Icon, an app used to book entertainers, which is similar to Billy McFarland's Fyre app. He told the outlet that he wanted to create a festival similar to Fyre to support it.

"[Fyre Festival] is heartbreaking to me. It was something that I really, really wanted to be special and amazing, and it just didn't turn out that way, but in the midst of chaos there's opportunity, so I'm working on a lot of new things," he says. He then gets into the fact that he wants to form a music festival. "[Fyre] is the most iconic festival that never was... I have plans to create the iconic music festival, but you didn't hear it from me."

Ja Rule actually doesn't seem to think he is at all responsible for what came from Fyre Fest, claiming in a Twitter post that he was "hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hood winked, led astray." Even if that's his feeling, he should realize that anyone involved with Fyre shouldn't ever try their hand at music festivals again.
