News of the Day:
+ Made in America is almost here and we're heartbroken we can't nab tickets. Lucky for us, though, TIDAL will be live streaming the whole shebang for members and non-members alike. The festival includes performances by Rihanna, Coldplay, Chance the Rapper, and more. We will, without a doubt, be glued to our computers the whole weekend.
+ Because the world isn't weird enough, a new website called the Emojibator has announced its debut product: the eggplant emoji vibrator. The company firmly believes "since the eggplant emoji has penetrated your texting conversations, it has been a definitive sex symbol." It's even knocked the hotdog out of its spot as the top phallic symbol. Nevertheless, the eggplant sex toy is much more than a fun gag—it's been given a sleek design, has 10 vibration settings, and, most importantly, provides "a healthy serving of vitamin D."
+ "There was a boy, a very strange, enchanted boy"—and he's coming to Broadway. That is, in a stage production of Moulin Rouge! For those who don't remember, Moulin Rouge! was the campy, cult film directed by Baz Luhrmann. It repurposed classic hits (like "Roxanne" by The Police) to narrate the tale of two star-crossed lovers (one a writer, one a famous courtesan) in the 1900s burlesque scene of Paris. So far, writer John Logan and director Alex Timbers have been granted golden tickets to work on the iconic show. It's unlikely that Nicole Kidman or Ewan McGregor will join the cast, but we'll still be waiting with anticipation for more details.
+ Almost a week after dropping his fire EP Prima Donna, Vince Staples is back at it again with a short film directed by Nabil. Enter the void, below.
