Our queen!

Lauren Jauregui is partnering with human rights foundation Amnesty International for its Write for Rights campaign and giving a performance at its annual event.

Write for Rights is held each year around the time of Human Rights Day in order to urge members of the public to write to their government officials on behalf of women human rights advocates who are being prosecuted or discriminated against as a result of their advocacy. This year, the foundation has partnered with Sofar Sounds to bring musicians who use their platform for social change.

"I am very excited to be working with Amnesty International USA and Sofar Sounds on the Write 4 Rights event and advocate for these 11 amazing women fighting for human rights across the globe," Jauregui told NYLON. "There is power in numbers, and I hope people will be inspired through this campaign to come together and use that power to affect change." She spoke with us about how she uses her voice for activism during her cover story, so we're not at all surprised by this partnership.

"Lauren has been an outspoken ally in the fight for human rights, and we're thrilled to work with her as part of Amnesty's longstanding tradition of inspiring people to take global action through the power of music and activism," said Robyn Shepherd, director of media relations at Amnesty International USA. "The wonderful thing about this evening is that it provides simple but meaningful ways to really make a difference, all while having a great night out. Everyone here tonight is having an impact by supporting women defending human rights around the world."

The event will be held next Saturday, December 8, in New York City. If you can't make it to the physical write-in, you can participate by visiting the Write for Rights website, here.

Showtime just ordered a pilot episode of Casallina "Cathy" Kisakye's comedy anthology series, which will be executive-produced by Lena Waithe. The show, called How to Make Love to a Black Woman (Who May Be Working Through Some Shit), sounds like it'll be... informative.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, though the series is a comedy, it will also touch on some vulnerable subjects as well. It described the show as being about "connection and rejection that explore our most harrowing—and harrowingly comic—sexual secrets." Waithe said in a statement about the news, "Cathy's script is haunting, funny, and extremely vulnerable—it's the kind of script that doesn't come around very often." She continues, showing her excitement for the project: "I'm honored that Cathy trusts me with such a special project. I can't wait for the world to see it."

Kisakye, who previously worked with Waithe on The Chi, says that the show is close to her heart, and that the series will portray three-dimensional, complex women. "With How to Make Love, I'm thrilled to tell stories about the women I know, who are complicated, passionate, resilient, and relatable," she said in a statement.

Kisakye is the creator of the show, and will be writing the pilot script. It's the latest project to come to Showtime through Waithe's first-look deal and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, should it go to series, this would be the first anthology for the network.

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.
