Chances are, you've heard quite a few things about the recent Sony email leak scandal. And while there were a lot of, err, unfavorable things discussed, one thing was revealed in those emails that's amazing, to say the least. Apparently, Kanye West and his team are currently working on a feature-length film. Oh, and West is teaming up with Seth Rogen (who he recently had a pretty insane limo rendezvous with), James Franco, and Anthony Mackie to reenact the FAO Schwartz floor piano dancing scene from Big. Yeah, we told you it was major.

+If it wasn't already obvious, we're huge fans of the #FreeTheNipple movement (see: our interviews with movement figureheads Lina Esco and Rumer Willis). But we have a sneaking suspicion that even if Miley Cyrus' newest song—a cover of "Look What They've Done to My Song, Ma"—wasn't attached to the newly-released film, we'd love it anyway. Listen here.

+ICYMI, our cover girl Charli XCX was Saturday Night Live's latest musical guest. Watch her slay "Break The Rules" and "Boom Clap"—but before you do, prepare yourself for some major outfit envy: her crop tops were on point.

+What's better than an iconic supermodel pairing up with one of the industry's freshest faces? Not much. Maybe that's why Burberry recruited Naomi Campbell and Jourdan Dunn as the faces of their SS '15 campaign. Then again, it could just be because the two are incredibly amazing and talented in their own right...
