You Can Eat A Cheese Sandwich In A Box At This Fyre Festival "Experience" Pop-Up

A new pop-up is recreating the hell that was the Fyre Festival, making even more of a mockery of the original event than the Hulu and Netflix documentaries already have.

According to Insider, The Most Famous Artist (who also goes by Matty Mo) and his company SelfieCircus are behind what he dubbed "The Fyre Experience" which takes place in what appears to be a retail space in Los Angeles. Just like the original, attendees are offered a "luxurious experience" and can opt for "VIP packages," but, again, like the original, it's all a farce.

For example, the space is identified by a sign made out of recycled cardboard boxes:

The "experience" itself seems to be an assortment of photo opportunities for attendees, with the point being to look like you were at the actual festival. Several backdrops are positioned around the space, featuring figures like Bella Hadid, who promoted the event, and its ringleader Billy McFarland. You can get a cheese sandwich in a plastic container, or take a picture in a kiddie pool filled with Evian water bottles (dubbed a "beach-front hot tub").

Though Matty Mo told Insider that the event would be open until February 3 and that he had celebrities lined up to visit, Page Six notes that this pop-up seems to already be closed (but maybe not permanently). In a since-deleted Instagram post to his private account, Matty Mo announced the news: "Due to forces outside of our control #thefyreexperience has been canceled. No one will be issued a refund. I've already left the country. See ya next time."

Sounds about right.

While the song should serve as a reminder to your exes

Just a day after dropping new single "Nunya," featuring Dom Kennedy, Kehlani has released the winter-wonderland visuals to go along with. The singer, NYLON November cover star, and mother-to-be rocks some of the best winter 'fits I've seen in a while, including a glorious puffer jacket that could double as a down comforter that I absolutely need in my life right now.

Kehlani is clearly living her best life up in some snow-filled forest hideaway, vibing on the beach at sunset and sipping on something bubbly as she coolly reminds nosy exes that who she's with is "nunya business." There's not much of a story line (unlike her recent "Nights Like This" video); the main takeaway is that Kehlani is busy dancing through a forest, missing no one and chilling amongst people who are clearly not the subjects of the song.

Kehlani is only two short months away from bringing baby Adeya into the world, who she thanked for helping her get through the video process. "Shot that 7 months pregnant in da snow..." Kehlani wrote on Twitter, adding, "thank u baby for da motivation, mommy was FROZE."

Even from the womb, Adeya has been hustling hard alongside her momma. Twitter user @ODtheMC pointed out that this is already her second music video appearance, and she's not even been born.

Get some mulled wine ready and escape into Kehlani's winter getaway, below. Stay tuned for her forthcoming mixtape, While We Wait, out on February 22.

As in Black Panther Political Party leader

It's been a running joke that the Black parents/grandparents of millennials were really confused about all of the Black Panther hoopla ahead of its 2018 release. Many of them were anticipating a movie about members of the Black Panther Political Party and didn't know who the hell T'Challa was. Well, those people are about to have their moment, and we're about to have another one.

Variety is reporting that Fred Hampton, the Black Panther leader at the center of the upcoming biopic Jesus Was My Homeboy, could be played by none other than Daniel Kaluuya. Apparently, he is in negotiations for the role. And he's not the only Black Panther alum in the mix. The Warner Bros. project is being produced by Black Panther director, Ryan Coogler. The same article reports that the forever swoon-worthy Lakeith Stanfield—who appeared with Kaluuya in Jordan Peele's Get Out—is also in negotiations, to play William O'Neal, an FBI informant who infiltrated the Black Panther Party.

Coogler and Charles King are putting together a dream cast to tell a difficult story. Hampton was killed by the Chicago Police Department, while his pregnant girlfriend lay next to him, thanks in part to information they received from O'Neal. Whenever it's out, I strongly recommend having Black Panther queued up as a palate cleanser.
