We believe survivors

Brett Kavanaugh really should have bought the domain for his own name—because now has been made into a resource center for survivors of sexual assault. The first thing you see when you go to the page is the phrase “We Believe Survivors,” which alludes to the fact that he has said that all of the allegations against him are false.

The website, which was bought and created by nonpartisan advocacy group Fix the Court, notes that “this past month, thousands of survivors came forward to tell their stories. We applaud your bravery. We believe you.” It continues to say that Kavanaugh’s confirmation has put a focus on the issue of sexual assault “and how we as a country can and should do more to prevent it and to support those who have experienced it.” Underneath this statement, are links to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, End Rape On Campus, and the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network.

The executive director of Fix the Court, Gabe Roth, said in a statement that he bought the domain, along with the .org and .net versions, three years ago in case they might “be useful in any forthcoming Supreme Court confirmation battles.” He is redirecting all three to this landing page with resources for survivors of sexual assault.

“I believe Dr. Ford,” Roth continued. “I believe Prof. Hill. I also believe that asking for forgiveness is a sign of maturity and strength, not weakness.”

The Cut also noticed that there’s another quality site being used to troll Kavanaugh:, which mocks his constant beer comments during his hearing last month.

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.
