Happy National Coloring Book day!

Life is but a series of trials and tribulations all bent on reclaiming our childhood sense of awe, wonder, and imagination. Jadedness comes with adulthood and learning how to combat it is essential. At some point in your adult life, the urge to color will come over you. It will be bizarre and have you questioning your sanity. You'll go quiet on Instagram Stories because your Sundays are no longer spent brunching, but coloring.

Do not be ashamed, dear adult friend! Coloring is therapeutic and the books out there these days are more than Hot Wheels, Barney, and Disney Princesses. Remember when your group of friends discovered how enjoyable it is to stay in on Friday night playing board games instead of waiting in line for some party? Extend that mentality to your me time. Hell, invite your friends over for a coloring book party! You're adults, after all, and can enjoy adult things while coloring adult coloring books. National Coloring Book Day, today, August 2, is not just for the kids; it's for you. Reclaim that joy with the following selection of tongue-in-cheek, sometimes NSFW selection of books to color in (or outside of). Then be a real adult, take your masterpiece out of the book, put it on a frame, and hang it. That's the grown-up version of sticking it to the fridge.

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.
