Get ready for “more awkward situations.”

HBO's Girls came to an end this year, but show runners Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner are already working on another series. "We're back in business," Dunham told reporters. She didn't give away any specifics about the project, but said, “you’ll definitely see some more awkward situations and people showing their darker selves.”

Dunham and Konner broke the news while celebrating the two-year anniversary of their newsletter Lenny Letter in New York City. The newsletter has resulted in an imprint at Random House, which published its first book, Sour Heart by Jenny Zhang, this summer, a series of live variety shows, and will soon become an HBO documentary series

“We’re feeling lucky and busy,” Dunham told People.

“It has been weird and kind of hard to get out of bed," Konner said of wrapping Girls, "but Lenny helps us through that and we’re now working on a new show."

Konner and Dunham also produced a short film, Tokyo Project, which will air on HBO this fall. 

While they wouldn't give away a lot of information, Dunham said all of the projects are very different from each other. So we can only assume this next show won't be set in Brooklyn.

I'm cackling

Last year, Balenciaga released bright red square-toed mules which bore a striking resemblance to McDonald's french fry cartons. Now, the chain has fired back at the designer, threatening to release its own version of the shoes.

McDonald's Sweden posted a photo to its Instagram of a person wearing actual McDonald's fry cartons as shoes, and honestly, if there weren't yellow M's printed onto them, I'd have a hard time distinguishing them from the Balenciagas from a distance. Though the post doesn't directly reference the Balenciaga shoes, one can only assume that's who they are trolling.

McDonald's version actually makes for some pretty fly slip-ons, if you ask me. Good thing the Swedish branch of Mickey D's seems to be considering releasing the shoes if the post receives enough attention. The caption of the Instagram post translates to, "If we get 103042 likes we release these for real," though it only has about 17,000 as of publish time. These would likely cost much less than the Balenciaga shoes, which cost $545.

Internet, do your thing. I want a pair.

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.
