Watch Elle Fanning And Nicole Kidman Transform Into Partying Punk Aliens


Teasers for ‘How To Talk To Girls At Parties’ have finally landed

Anything with Elle Fanning on the bill is worth watching to us. So, it goes without saying, that we are more than ready to see her shine in How to Talk to Girls at Parties. The John Cameron Mitchell-directed sci-fi rom-com is an adaptation of Neil Gaiman's original short story that follows a pair of aliens who get lost in the galaxy and stumble upon a bunch of Sex Pistols-obsessed teens from London.

As you'll see in the batch of newly released clips, Nicole Kidman and Elle Fanning co-star as the two extraterrestrials, while Alex Sharp plays one of the British punks who ultimately falls for the girl that is quite literally otherworldly. For a couple of weirdos, these aliens sure are adorable whether they're eating apples fresh off the branch, looking for the right words to describe genitalia, or wreaking havoc in a mosh pit. 

Whether you like it or not, the resurgence of punk is happening in full force right now, so pull up a chair, grab your darkest tube of black eyeliner, and break out those graphic band tees. Maybe 2017 is not so different from 1970 after all?

How to Talk to Girls at Parties is slated for a grand premiere at Cannes Film Festival on May 21 along with The Beguiled, another highly-anticipated film starring two of our leading ladies. Watch the teasers in the Instagram posts, 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.
