Arriving in 2017

In a panel run by Warner Bros. Animation at San Francisco's Comic-Con, the production company announced that one of this year’s most beloved characters will be returning to the screen in 2017: Batman and Harley Quinn will tell a completely new story.

Since the announcement was made by Warner Bros.’ animation team, the upcoming film may very well show Harley Quinn in a different form than her Suicide Squad outfit, made famous by Margot Robbie. While Harley Quinn has been a mainstay in DC Comics since her first appearance in 1993, her first titular movie appearance may help to clarify her backstory and give fans a deeper look at the character. The story will be written by Bruce Timm, who created the character of Harley Quinn, so comic fans can expect some compelling new insights come next summer.

Fans of Robbie’s portrayal need not stress, though, even if the coming Batman and Harley Quinn is slated to be animated. Back in May, Warner Bros. announced that it was working on a film focused on several of DC’s female superheroes and villains, including Robbie as Harley Quinn.

This news also comes after the reveal of Wonder Woman’s first trailer, as well as Marvel’s announcement that Brie Larson will be stepping into the role of Captain Marvel. This year’s Comic-Con is one that is definitely taking women into consideration.

The newly announced Harley Quinn films may be a while away, but fans can finally enjoy Robbie’s performance on August 4, when Suicide Squad premieres.

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.
