The Lizzie Borden biopic will premiere at Sundance

Two years ago, we found out that Kristen Stewart and Chloë Sevigny were slated to star in a new biopic detailing the life of the infamous ax-wielding murderer Lizzie Borden. And in 2016, we got a first look at Sevigny as Borden and Stewart as Borden's maid and romantic partner, Bridget Sullivan. At the time, there was no word of when the film would premiere. Now it's been revealed that the biopic will see the light of day during the upcoming Sundance Film Festival.

The lineup for the festival, which includes The Miseducation of Cameron Post (starring Chloë Grace Moretz), I Think We’re Alone Now (Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning)and the highly-anticipated film adaptation of Walter Dean Myers' Monster, will premiere next January. 

Lizzie, which has been described as a “gothic psychological thriller with an indelible romance at its core,” will explore the notorious family murders through the lens of Borden's blossoming relationship with Sullivan. The announcement of the film's premiere came with a brand-new promotional photo of Stewart and Sevigny in character, sharing a deeply intimate moment. 

The Sundance Film Festival will take place from January 18 to 28. You can see the list in full here.

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.
