The film hits theaters October 19

The first trailer for Aubrey Plaza’s new film, An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn, has been released, and it looks like it will be just as hilariously absurd as some of her previous projects. In it, she falls out of love with her husband and into an affair with the hitman he’s hired to save his business.

Plaza plays Lulu Danger, who has just been fired from her café job by her husband and boss, Shane (Emile Hirsch). As one does when newly unemployed, Danger takes advantage of her free time and catches up on some TV, stumbling upon a commercial for an upcoming performance from a magician named Beverly Luff Linn (played by Craig Robinson) who wears a lot of plaid. She recognizes him as a figure from her past, but her memory is hazy. 

Meanwhile, Shane is taking unexpected risks to save his failing business, hiring a hitman to pull off the crimes he deems necessary. Unfortunately for him, the hitman he hired (played by Jemaine Clement) falls for his wife—obviously, because it’s Plaza—and the feelings are mutual. A series of botched crimes ensues, which includes a string of men, wearing very obvious wigs, trying and failing to rob a convenience store.

An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn hits theaters, On Demand, and Digital HD on October 19. Watch the trailer, below.

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.
