you’re invited to a ms mr sleepover


prank calls, onesies, and pizza included.

We miss sleepovers. We're talking real sleepovers, like the ones that meant prank calling, playing Truth or Dare, and wearing patterned fleece onesies. Ever since we left elementary school these things don't happen as much as we'd like–well, except for the onesie thing, because we still totally wear them–so isn't it about time they came back?

Luckily that's exactly what's happening on our new favorite web show– except this time, there's a musical twist. FKR.TV (the video offshoot of Frenchkiss Records) has just launched a new webseries called Slumber Party @emmieshouse, and yes, it's basically all of our indie pop dreams colliding at once.

Host Emmie Lichtenberg brings bands like MS MR, Charli XCX, Marina & the Diamonds, and Kitten into her bedroom for some girl (and guy) talk, plus all the amazing stuff you'd normally do on “big nights out” as a little kid. Lizzy Plapinger prank calling Lichtenberg's mom? Sure, why not! Sour Warhead challenges with Charli? Duh. More than one all-time crushes might revealed (hi, Taylor Kitsch…), plus serious '90s fashion overload.

But don't just take our word for it. Watch the exclusive premiere with MS MR here, and stay tuned for more episodes every other week. Dig up your old scrunchies and put the pizza delivery guy back on speed dial, because the new-and-improved sleepover has arrived.

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.
