Fader reports that the release of the long-awaited and proper follow up (i.e., not 2001’s MTV Unplugged 2.0) to The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill is imminent. According to Phil Nicolo (co-founder of Ruffhouse Records, and one of the producers she’s currently working with), Hill’s involvement with Netflix’s What Happened, Miss Simone?, and the corresponding soundtrack Nina Revisited: A Tribute To Nina Simone “pushed her hand in a way.”
Why doesn’t Instagram want you to #freethenipple?

While we’re on the subject, in case you didn’t hear, Miley Cyrus enjoys wearing as little as possible, as she expresses in the clip above. In anticipation for the upcoming Season 41 premiere of Saturday Night Live on October 3rd, NBC has uploaded the promos for Miley Cyrus, who will do double-duty as host and musical guest.

According to The Creators Project, Rwanda will host the Earth’s first airport for drones. The initiative behind the “droneport” comes from architect Norman Foster of Foster + Partners: “Just as mobile phones dispensed with landlines, cargo drones [containing medical and emergency supplies] can transcend geographical barriers such as mountains, lakes, and unnavigable rivers without the need for large-scale physical infrastructure.” Work on Rwanda’s droneport is scheduled to begin early next year, with the possibility of expanding to Congo.
