“It’s insane”

Donald Trump's ascension to the presidency has loomed over this year's Sundance Film Festival like a dark cloud. Richard Lawson of Vanity Fair described in detail how the inauguration dominated the conversation on the festival's first night. That sentiment was made even more apparent during an interview Kristen Stewart conducted with Variety on Friday.

Stewart, who was in town to premiere her directorial debut, spoke about how Trump developed an odd fascination with her 2012 cheating scandal. "He was mad at me a couple years ago, really obsessed with me a couple years ago, which is fucking crazy,” Stewart said about Trump.

For those of you that don't remember, Stewart's relationship with her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson imploded when it was revealed that she'd had an affair with director Rupert Sanders. And while the gossip rags were relentless on the actress, it appears that our new president also had an opinion. 

"Everyone knows I am right that Robert Pattinson should dump Kristen Stewart,” he tweeted at the time. “In a couple of years, he will thank me. Be smart, Robert.”

So how does K-stew feel, knowing that the leader of the free world took a personal interest in her love life? Well, let's let her tell you. 

“I can’t even understand it. I literally cannot even understand it. It’s such far-out concept that I don’t want to believe that actually is happening. It’s insane.”

Yup, that about sums it up.

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.
