This New Shop Has The Feminist Products You Didn’t Know You Needed


Including, but not limited to, totes and pins

Don’t know what to get your Hillary-adoring pantsuit-wearing friend this holiday? The Wing has you covered.

Let’s back up a bit. If you’re not familiar, the Wing is a women’s club in New York City that opened up in October with the goal of giving professional women a place to go that is like a halfway spot between office and home, one where they can hang out with other like-minded women in a constructive, collaborative environment. And use lots of Glossier products. Or, in the Wing's own words, it was founded “out of the belief that women need and deserve a multi-purpose space designed to make their lives easier, and the magic is created when women gather together.” Beyond its functional purpose, the Wing's highly coveted (and Instagram-friendly) aesthetic has been noted in each write-up of the Wing, meaning that the realization of a retail branch of the club was less a question of if, and more a question of when.

Well, the answer to that question is now: The Wing’s e-commerce site launched today and includes pieces like a baseball cap with “League of Unusual Women” written across it; pencils with names of inspiring women like Michelle Obama, Winona Ryder, and Fran Drescher on them; and a tote bag with "Bag Lady" in big blue print. Our personal favorite items have to be a pin designed by artist Marilyn Minter for Planned Parenthood that reads “Don’t Fuck With Us Don’t Fuck Without Us,” and the “Girls Doing Whatever The Fuck They Want in 2017” keychain. We might not be able to afford the annual membership fee (it runs $1,950 annually), but non-Wing members are free to add these to their shopping cart whenever they please. 

Scroll through to check out some more pieces and head over to the shop to see the rest.

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.
