Whatever was “Unwritten”

While MTV may not have created the first reality show (that honor goes to HBO for An American Family Revisited: The Louds 10 Years Later), they certainly created the beast that it became. After putting seven strangers in a house, they documented high school life in the privileged-filled Laguna Beach. That, of course, spawned The Hills—and later The City—arguably the most influential reality show for teens at the time. When it came to an end in 2010, its closing scene catapulted social media into mayhem. Was it all just an elaborate, four-year long scripted fabrication, or was there some truth to the series? For those still plagued by this question, there may be an end in sight: The Hills is reuniting for a special in honor of the show's 10-year anniversary.

Led by Lauren Conrad, or as she was and still is so affectionately called L.C., The Hills: That Was Then, This Is Now promises to go through the show's first five seasons (before Conrad left the show and was replaced by Kristin Cavallari) and reveal what was really happening. As L.C. says in the teaser, "Often, we would say, 'If you knew the real story, you would understand.' And what I'd like to do is tell that story." It will also show what life is like for the cast at this moment in time. 

Will we find out what Heidi Montag "knew that she did"? Will we see the root of L.C.'s hatred for Justin Bobby? Only time will tell. The special airs August 7 at 8pm EST on MTV.

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.
