Iconic British spy James Bond's next literary adventure has a short, succinct title denoting his status within its pages: Solo.

 

Award-winning author William Boyd announced the snappy title of his forthcoming James Bond instalment at the London Book Fair on Monday.

 

"In my novel, events conspire to make Bond go off on a self-appointed mission of his own, unannounced and without any authorization — and he's fully prepared to take the consequences of his audacity," Boyd said.

 

"Titles are very important to me and as soon as I wrote down Solo on a sheet of paper I saw its potential. Not only did it fit the theme of the novel perfectly, it's also a great punchy word, instantly and internationally comprehensible, graphically alluring and, as an extra bonus, it's strangely Bondian in the sense that we might be subliminally aware of the 00 of 007 lurking just behind those juxtaposed o's of Solo."

 

Boyd, a British writer who grew up in Ghana, also shared that in Solo, the globe-trotting typical of any 007 tale includes stops in Africa.

 

"Ian Fleming had a great aptitude for naming his books and his Bond titles have become true classics. Solo is a simple yet striking title which fits perfectly alongside the other books in the Bond canon," said Corinne Turner, managing director of Ian Fleming Publications.

 

Boyd, who won the 2006 Costa Book Prize for his novel Restless, is the third novelist invited by Ian Fleming's estate to pen authorized James Bond sequels. He follows in the footsteps of Sebastian Faulks (2008's Devil May Care) and Jeffery Deaver (2011's Carte Blanche).

 

Solo will be published Sept. 26.

 

The most recent 007 movie was 2012's Skyfall, although the film — the 23rd instalment of the movie franchise — was not based on a James Bond novel.

Jamie Foxx shines spotlight on daughter

The actor is a father to Corinne and Annalise Bishop, with the former accompanying him to the MTV Movie Awards yesterday. Corinne stood out in a short black dress at the event and her famous dad caused a stir when he revealed on stage the pretty 19-year-old is single.

 

"You know I have to put her in the spotlight, that's what daddies do," he smiled to MTV News.

 

"I'm just so happy to have her here."

 

Jamie picked up the Generation Award at the bash last night, having impressed with his lead role in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained. The star joked Corinne didn't come along to celebrate his success, but rather to get an eyeful of all the celebrities in attendance.

 

"Yeah, it makes [me] a little cooler [to her]," he laughed when asked by Access Hollywood if winning MTV prizes made him look good in front of his teenage daughter.

 

"But she's here for the other stars. She's like, 'Dad, I need to get my Instagram on!’"

 

The 45-year-old next stars in White House Down and is also working on a project that will feature Kanye West. The star insists he still has a lot to offer when it comes to his career.

 

"I'm more like an athlete. I need an incentive. Sometimes you reach a plateau or someone says, 'You can't really do that,' that's motivated me," he explained.

 

"My thing has always been that I worry I won't be able to get all my creative ideas out before I leave this place so that's what it is."

The Beach Boys frontman will pen his memoirs for a new book titled I Am Brian Wilson, to be released in 2015.


His website states that the book "will describe for the first time the epic highs and lows of his life – from his tumultuous relationship with his father, the loss of his mother and brothers, his fears about live performance, the struggles he faced to lead the Beach Boys away from surf music into groundbreaking, experimental terrain, to his remarkable personal and professional comeback from drug addiction and mental illnesswith the support of his second wife Melinda".
 
Wilson previously released the biography Wouldn't It Be Nice in 1991, but his new book will delve into his life and career since his recovery and critical resurgence over the past decade. At the time, the previous book praised his treatment by therapist Eugene Landy. Wilson later stated in court that he had not written or read the final edit of the book, written by journalist Todd Gold. Landy was later given a restraining order against Wilson, after a long legal battle. The therapist had also labelled himself as co-writer, co-producer and financial partner in his years with Wilson. Coronet will publish I Am Brian Wilson in 2015, to be written with journalist Jason Fine. The Beach Boys released their latest album That's Why God Made the Radio last year, before Wilson, Al Jardine and David Marks left the group in September.

The singer sparked outrage at the weekend when it emerged that he wrote in the guestbook of an Amsterdam museum dedicated to Frank - who documented her experiences hiding from the Nazis during World War II in a diary - that she "hopefully... would have been a Belieber".


A spokeswoman for the Anne Frank House has since commented that she and her colleagues were "a bit overwhelmed" by the negative response to what they perceived to be a harmless remark.
 
"He's a 19-year-old boy taking the effort to come and see the museum," the representative told Reuters. "And we'd like to point that out, and I think it's quite innocent what he put down." The museum has also posted a short message to its official Facebook pagein which Bieber's visit is described as "very positive".

"The Anne Frank House was pleased to welcome Justin Bieber to the Anne Frank House last Friday," the note read. "We think it is very positive that he took the time and effort to visit our museum.
 
"He was very interested in the story of Anne Frank and stayed for over an hour. We hope that his visit will inspire his fans to learn more about her life and hopefully read the diary." Bieber was in the Netherlands to perform as part of his 'Believe' World Tour.

Rihanna has canceled another show on her "Diamonds World Tour" Monday.

 

The Grammy-winning singer was scheduled to perform at Houston's Toyota Center but has canceled the performance "as a result of illness," promoter Live Nation told the Associated Press.

 

Concert-goers were advised to hang on to their tickets for a rescheduled concert date to be announced. Refunds were also available at the Toyota Center.

 

Riri, who canceled shows in Baltimore and Boston last month during a bout with the flu and laryngitis, is still expected to perform as scheduled in Dallas on Tuesday, Live Nation said.

 

The avid Instagram and Twitter user did not acknowledge the cancellation on her accounts, though she did take to social media to send her condolences to victims of the Boston Marathon explosions, calling the tragedy "heartbreaking." She also wished her brother Rajad a happy birthday.

 

The "Stay" singer, who usually makes headlines with on-again-off-again boyfriend Chris Brown, is  promoting her seventh album, "Unapologetic." The fashionista kicked off her high-energy world tour in Buffalo on March 8, which featured several Givenchy couture costume changes. The tour touched down in Los Angeles on April 8, and she played up her various personas during the show at Staples Center.

 

On May 5, Fox will air the 25-year-old's documentary, "Rihanna 777."

Alicia Keys campaigns for HIV education

Alicia Keys says she wants to spark a global conversation about HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

 

The Grammy Award-winning singer met with women who are part of an HIV program at United Medical Center in the nation's capital Monday to discuss their experiences with the virus, including the fear and stigma associated with the disease.

 

Keys, who has also traveled to Africa and India to meet with women who have HIV, said she felt connected to the women there and here because "they looked like they could be my sister, or they could be my aunt, or they could be my cousin." And now, she said, she wants to "bridge" the gap between domestic and international conversations about the virus.

 

Keys is working with the Kaiser Family Foundation for "Empowered," a campaign launched last month to educate women about HIV and provide grants to community-based projects that will do that. According to Kaiser, one in four of the 1.1 million people living with HIV in the United States are women. Women of color account for about two-thirds of new HIV infections among women.

 

"Black women are disproportionally affected, making up for the majority of all new infections," Keys said. "That's a must-have conversation."

 

The campaign includes outreach through public service ads, social media and community programs. It encourages women to learn about HIV and AIDS, talk with family and friends, protect themselves and loved ones, get tested, prevent spreading the disease and stay on treatment.

 

Keys is also leading the Empowered Community Grants program with Kaiser and AIDS United that will give up to $25,000 grants to community-level projects that focus on women and HIV.

 

"To identify those community-based organizations is a very important part of the puzzle," Keys said.

 

Valerie Jarrett, a White House senior advisor who has worked with Keys in the past on women and health issues, said she supports "Empowered" because it is part of President Barack Obama's vision for comprehensive health.

 

"You really have to have a holistic and comprehensive approach to this and what's so special about what Alicia is doing now is that it will highlight how every single person can play a role in this," Jarrett said.

 

The campaign is scheduled to run for five years and publish a report annually on women's experiences with HIV and AIDS and examine cultural changes regarding education, misconceptions and the stigma associated with the disease.

 

Keys has been an advocate for lesser served countries for more than a decade. She is co-founder of Keep a Child Alive, which provides AIDS treatment, food and other support to children and families affected by HIV and AIDS in Africa and India.

The comic book superheroes of "The Avengers" and comedy romance "Silver Linings Playbook" ruled at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday on a night packed with irreverent jokes about body parts and sneak peeks of some of the year's biggest upcoming films.

 

"The Avengers" picked up three awards, including the top prize, movie of the year, along with best villain for Tom Hiddleston's turn as the evil Loki, and best fight.

 

"This is the award that means the most to me. I am so grateful and very excited for 2015 - we're going to bring you 'Avengers 2,'" director Joss Wheedon said, accepting the movie of the year award and confirming that a sequel was in the works.

 

Jennifer Lawrence added two popcorn-shaped trophies to her Oscar for her turn as an outspoken young widow in "Silver Linings Playbook."

 

She won for best female performance and shared the best kiss award with co-star Bradley Cooper, who was voted best male performance for his role as a bipolar man in the comedy romance.

 

Hosted by "Pitch Perfect" comedy star Rebel Wilson, the annual youth-oriented show brought out some of the most popular stars on television, movies and music.

 

The MTV Movie Awards, one of Hollywood's biggest youth-friendly ceremonies, rewards movie performances from the past year as well as promoting upcoming blockbusters and new music.

 

A heavily pregnant Kim Kardashian, dressed in a modest, long-sleeved black dress, and Brad Pitt whose new movie "World War Z" opens in June, were among the presenters while teen singer Selena Gomez debuted her new single "Come & Get It."

 

KEEPING IT EDGY

 

Wilson, who took home the breakthrough performance award for her role as Fat Amy in musical comedy "Pitch Perfect," kept up a stream of edgy jokes about male and female sexuality, appearing at one point with a fake extra nipple.

 

Seth Rogen and Danny McBride dropped their pants in a skit on male physiques and "Twilight" heartthrob Taylor Lautner turned up sporting a false beer gut to collect his trophy for best shirtless performance.

 

Fans, who vote online for the awards, chose "Django Unchained" actors Jamie Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson for best "WTF moment" for the scene in which Foxx's vengeful slave berates and unleashes a volley of gunshots at Jackson's servile black manservant.

 

Foxx was also honored with the MTV Generation Award.

 

Viewers for the more than two hour-show broadcast around the world live from Los Angeles were treated to sneak peeks of "Iron Man 3," and "Star Trek Into Darkness" ahead of their openings around in late April and May.

 

They also got a first exclusive look at "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" ahead of the release in November of the sequel to the young adult hit movie.

 

Emma Watson, 22, who found fame as brainy schoolgirl Hermione Granger in the first "Harry Potter" movie in 2001, was presented with the Trailblazer Award. She has gone on to make some 15 movies, including lead roles in all eight Potter films.

 

"I look back at all of the work I have done over the past 14 years and many things come to mind, notably how bad my hair was in the first Harry Potter film!" the British actress joked, accepting her award. "Becoming yourself is really hard and confusing," she added.

 

Will Ferrell won the Comedic Genius Award for his long career on film and television including "Elf," "Saturday Night Live" and "Anchorman."

 

Raunchy comedy "Ted," which went into Sunday's award show with seven nominations, ended the evening with just one win - best on-screen duo for Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane's crude, inappropriate talking teddy bear.

Charleston hip hop artist, Matt Monday (formerly Righchus), is happy to announce his partnership with BluRoc and DD172 media collective, owned and operated by hip hop mogul, Damon Dash.

Through his partnership with BluRoc, Monday will begin S.W.I.M Music Group LLC, giving him complete creative control over his brand and distribution provided by BluRoc/DD172.

"I'm excited about this move," says Matt Monday."This is good for the progression of our plan to rebrand me as an artist."

After being named ‘Best Local Hip Hop Artist’, by readers of the Charleston City Paper, for the fourth consecutive year, he felt the need to change his brand name.

 
Righchus represents a younger emecee, and according to the artist, he is no longer the kid sneaking out of church to participate in freestyle battles, or the college student rapping about “Sweetgrass & Supras."

 “I’m getting older and my music has grown with me,” he said. “It’s almost as if I’m a new artist.”

 Despite the name change, Monday maintains his management deal with Million Dollar Dreamz, and will continue to make good music for his loyal fans.

“I can't wait to expose my fans to everything we’ve been working on,” he added.

Following the release of his third LP “Black Cradles” in July 2012, Monday began working with Mckenize Eddy, co-founder and President of BluRoc and one of the co founders of DD172 media collective. He was also featured on her mixtape“El Presidente.”
"We are excited to work with Matt Monday," said Mckenize Eddy. "He's a pillar of the the Charleston Hip-Hop community...just music in general."
Monday plans to release two news singles during the month of May, followed by an official album in the summer.
"He has done a good job on making moves, and we are thrilled to help him move to another level.”

Royce Reed

Royce Reed doesn’t quite fit in with the drama filled theme of Basketball Wives.  She has some other things going for her (the dance studio, the book, the speaking engagements) and it has been months since Dwight tried to sue her for anything, so in that regard she is winning. 

 

Royce is the only one who uses some common sense and maybe that is the reason they don’t want her in the “circle”. One of the general knocks against the VH1 Reality Show Basketball Wives is that most of the women aren’t wives and even if they were or are wives either their husbands were journeymen (see: Meeka Claxton) or they haven’t been out of the league for YEARS.

 

Royce Reed faces a different dilemma since she is not allowed to speak about her past relationship with the father of her son Dwight Howard (a court order that she voluntarily signed) and her background of a NBA dancer has cast members and viewers questioning her relevance not just to show but her connection to the NBA in general.

 

She explains to J’Adore why she is relevant to the NBA.

 

I find it funny when some of my cast members question my relevance to the NBA. I laugh because I feel as if I hold more relevance than most of them due to the fact I actually held a job for 3 season, received a paycheck, and was constantly in the community as an ambassador for both teams I was a part of.

 

I was in a relationship also but that’s not what defines me so I’m actually happy that I didn’t have to tell my story pertaining to my ex. I was able to showcase who Royce is as a person, not someone’s ex. I like holding my own without having to piggy back or ride on someone else coat-tails. Also, I’m still active in my career. I have a book out now called College Girls (you can purchase at Roycelyndsay.com) that is part one of a 5 book series and I’m about to go on tour for a stage play called Cheaters.

 

My dance company is doing well and I’m using my college degree to further myself. The show is a stepping stone and also an outlet to show who Royce really is. Like it or not, its me.

 

Royce is a smart young lady, We wish her well on her next endeavors wherever they take her.
