Robert Pattinson Hints At Designing Own Clothing Line

actor, vampire, clothing designer?

Vampire darling Robert Pattinson is certainly no stranger to high fashion. Indeed, he was recently named as the new face of Dior Homme's ready-to-wear collection, marking the very first time the brand has used a Hollywood star to be the face of the line. He was even shot by Karl Lagerfeld himself for the campaign. Be still, our tiny, Choupette-loving hearts. This might not be as much of a surprise as we all think, however, since it seems fashion has been brewing on Pattinson's mind for quite some time.

In an interview conducted with Numéro, that ran last week, Pattinson let it slip that's he working on clothing... in an answer to a completely unrelated question.

Numéro: Do you ever think about writing or directing?

Pattinson: I've started making clothes. For the last two years, I've been visiting producers and craftsmen. There's already quite a few pieces. I love doing it. My style is influenced by the cities I go to, sourcing fabrics and local skills. In Los Angeles it's really easy to work with denim and do workwear inspired clothes. In England I look more towards wool and knitwear. What I do is pretty multifaceted, clothes for men and for women, things that I make with friends... But I'm not going into too much detail, I don't want to jinx anything...

We totally get being so excited about something you just can't help but talk about it to someone. It seems Pattinson ignored the words "writing" and "directing" and somehow heard "designing" and "fashion." Okay, we'll bite. So from the above, we can gather that he's been on the hunt, working directly with fabric makers and artisans, and has already created a handful of pieces for both men and women. We're a touch taken aback, but maybe he became inspired back in 2013 when Dior initially brought him on board to be the face of their fragrance for men. Whatever the case may be, we're hoping Pattinson's tongue slips again so we can hear more about his conquest of Edwardian fashion (see what we did there)?

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.
