50 Cent has gone on holiday on the Caribbean island where he was arrested for swearing at the weekend. On Saturday (June 25), 50 was arrested in St Kitts for swearing during his performance at St Kitts Festival. His management have blamed the swearing on “a mix-up” as the rapper was unaware of St Kitts’ laws relating to profanity. They were also unable to arrange clean versions of 50’s backing tracks to accompany his performance. He was arrested for saying “Motherfuckin’” during ‘P.I.M.P.’ What you in 4 MURDER all I said was motherfucker. LMAO #FRIGO A photo posted by 50 Cent (@50cent) on Jun 26, 2016 at 5:58pm PDT On Sunday, 50 and his bodyguard Bajar Walter each paid a fine of $1100 (£820). And 50’s spokeswoman Amanda Ruisi has said the rapper has now extended his stay in the Caribbean. Ruisi said: “We just want people to know we aren’t mad about this. We all had a good time. 50 enjoyed it so much that he’s decided to extend his stay longer. He’s going to Nevis, and we’d come back to perform in St Kitts anytime they’d like to have us back.” 50 had mocked his arrest, posting a picture of himself in prison uniform on Instagram with the caption “What are you are in for? Murder? ‘No, I only said “Motherfucker”.’ LMAO.”

The next season of The Walking Dead will introduce two new main characters, reports have claimed. The sixth season of the US show ended in April, with its seventh season expected to follow in October. According to TV Line, the sixth episode of the upcoming season will "introduce two new characters who don’t sound to me like anyone in particular from the comic-book series". The report lists the characters' names as Naomi and Jennie, describing Naomi as a "grandmotherly type who, having lost so many loved ones, is now willing to do whatever it takes not to have to bury any more", continuing: "Maybe she’s being introduced to counsel Carol about the awful necessities of the post-apocalyptic world". Jennie, meanwhile, is referred to as a "sunny-side-up kinda teenage... who sounds a lot like Beth 2.0, 'kind, with a world-weary toughness'." Many fans were left angered by season six's cliffhanger ending , later launched an online petition asking TV network AMC to reveal which character was killed by villain Negan. READ MORE: The Walking Dead Season Six Cliffhanger – Who Did Negan Kill? Norman Reedus - who plays Daryl Dixon in the show - has said that the new episodes will make up for the frustration. "Trust me," he said. "I think probably the planet is going to explode. That’s my feeling. It’s so good. Every time we go on a promotional tour talking about what’s going to come, we all say ‘Oh my God, it’s amazing. I can’t wait for you to see it.’ But it continually surprises me how this show grows and is put together and the execution of it – no pun intended." He went on to add: "It blows my mind. It just continually reaches a new plateau every single time, and this is the highest plateau we’ve ever been. So just wait. It’s worth the wait, trust me."

An early Bob Dylan interview recorded before he released his debut album has been turned into a cartoon. In 1962, a 20-year-old Dylan was interviewed by New York radio station WBAI for its Folksingers Choice series. The interview has now been turned into a cartoon by US TV service PBS as part of its animated series Blank On Blank. In the interview, Dylan is asked about the trademark beatnik hat he wore at the start of his career. Asked if he’d wear it “if you become rich and famous,” Dylan responds: “Oh, I’m never going to become rich and famous.” Dylan also gives an early example of his claims that he grew up working at a carnival. He claims he wrote a song called ‘Won’t Buy You A Postcard’ for a woman he met at the carnival whose “skin was all burned and she was a little baby, as she didn’t grow right.” He added that he couldn’t remember how his tribute song went. Of his early gigs, Dylan says his fee was “a dollar plus a cheeseburger”. At the time of the interview, Dylan was a month away from releasing his self-titled debut album, which featured self-written songs ‘Talkin’ New York’ and ‘Song To Woody’ among 11 covers. Dylan released covers album ‘Fallen Angels’ last month, which reached No 5.

"I'm in the studio - I never really left," he said. "I am working on things. I wouldn't like to say when it'll be finished." "It'd be nice to get something out a bit quicker than [the last album]," he continued. "So that's the next thing - recording and hopefully coming out with something sooner rather than later. Beating five years is all I can ask for."

Friends of a Star Wars fan killed in the Orlando nightclub shooting are petitioning Lucasfilm to introduce an LGBT character as a tribute. Drew Leinonen was one of 49 victims shot by a gunman at LGBT club Pulse in Orlando in June, along with his boyfriend Juan Ramon Guerrero. Leinonen’s friend Joshua Yehl, a fellow Star Wars fan, has set up the petition in Leinonen’s honour. Yehl’s open letter is addressed to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and Disney CEO Bob Iger. Make Orlando Victim Drew Leinonen the First LGBT Star Wars Movie Character from Joshua Yehl on Vimeo. In the letter, Yehl says: “Nothing would have made Drew happier than for all the gay little nerds out there to have their own Star Wars character to look up to.” Although Star Wars: The Force Awakens didn’t have any LGBT characters, its director JJ Abrams has previously spoken of the sense of having an LGBT character in the saga. In a comment quoted in Yehl’s letter, Abrams said: “The fun of Star Wars is the glory of possibility. So it seems insanely narrow-minded and counterintuitive to say that there wouldn’t be a homosexual character in that world.” Yehl added: “This is a universe with Wookies, Jawas, and Hutts, so why can’t there be a visible LGBT character on screen? It’s vitally important that LGBT people are included in mainstream media because it will show that we don’t need to be feared or hated or hidden. We can be part of the rebellion and we can fight evil, and we can do it while being who we are with pride.” Neither Disney or Lucasfilm have yet commented on Yehl’s petition. The eighth Star Wars film is due for release in December 2017.

The Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards is to host his own weekend of programmes on BBC Four. Details have yet to be finalised for Keith Richards’ Lost Weekend of shows in autumn, but BBC Four say it’s likely to include “documentaries, films and live performances”. Richards will introduce both night’s programmes in excerpts directed by Julien Temple. Temple has also directed a new documentary about Richards, Keith Richards – The Origin Of The Species. The hour-long show, which BBC2 will screen in July, sees Richards talk about his childhood in post-war Kent. A trailer for the documentary can be seen here. Temple’s film is the centrepiece of the BBC’s My Generation season, which also saw Tom Jones host The Decade That Made Me about his musical influences. Other films by Temple include The Sex Pistols documentary The Great Rock ‘N’ Roll Swindle and Glastonbury documentary Glastonbury as well as Absolute Beginners, the 1950s-set drama which starred David Bowie. The Rolling Stones’ memorabilia exhibition Exhibitionism is on at London’s Saatchi Gallery until September. The band have said they are recording their first album of covers, which is rumoured to be out in 2017. The band headline the first Desert Trip festival on October 7 and 14 in California, where they play with Bob Dylan on a bill which also includes Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Roger Waters and The Who. The Stones’ only other scheduled gig this year is at Las Vegas T-Mobile Arena on October 19. Richards released solo album 'Crosseyed Heart' last September.

Spoiler alert: Game Of Thrones actress Sophie Turner has dismissed a recent fan theory involving her character Sansa. In recent episode Battle of the Bastards, Sansa feeds Ramsay Bolton to his own dogs, but not before the character - who raped her in the previous season - tells her: "You can’t kill me, I’m part of you now". With many fans assuming this alludes to Sansa being pregnant, Turner has now told The Hollywood Reporter: "I think some people have taken it very literally, thinking that she might be pregnant. Personally, I think it's more figurative, especially because months and months have gone on and Sansa really hasn't developed a baby belly." Turner continued: "I think [Ramsay] means he's going to forever be imprinted on her in a way that he's done such a terrible thing to her. He's taken something of hers that's so precious. I think he believes that will always be a part of her, but I think he underestimates just how strong she is, and just how easily she can forget him. Now that she's killed him she can forget him, and she can move on with her life." Meanwhile, the Game Of Thrones showrunners have confirmed that the series will end after two more seasons and just 13 new episodes.

Bryan Cranston, who played Walter White in hit series Breaking Bad, has said that he would be open to starring in spin-off show Better Call Saul. Better Call Saul premiered in 2015, two years after the end of Breaking Bad. It follows the story of lawyer James Morgan "Jimmy" McGill, aka Saul Goodman, and is set six years before the start of the original show. Speaking about a possible cameo, Cranston said on the Rich Eisen Show this week: "I owe [Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul creator] Vince Gilligan so much. He was my champion to get this role. If they were to call me and say, ‘We have this idea, we’d like…’ I would say, ‘Yes, you don’t have to finish the pitch. I’m there, what do you want me to do?’ I’ll do whatever they want because I know how careful they are and proprietary they are with those characters and storylines and it wouldn’t be something, ‘Oh, isn’t that kind of a stunt casting kind of thing.’ It would be something kind of unique and obscure and creative, and I’m all in." "I have an opportunity to direct an episode of Saul and I’m debating whether I want to or not because I’m a fan of the show, and in order to direct I need to know what no fan knows,” he added. "I need to go back and they’ll tell me what’s going to happen leading up to the episode and there’s a part of me that says, ‘That would kind of kill it for me as a fan to peak behind the curtain.’ So, I don’t know if I am or not." Cranston was then asked whether he misses Breaking Bad, to which he answered: "Surprisingly, I don’t, and I think the reason is because Vince Gilligan crafted just what I think is the perfect beginning, middle, and end to a story. So because it was so complete I had a total completion." Breaking Bad co-star Aaron Paul has also confirmed that he has had "multiple conversations" about making a guest appearance in Better Call Saul. A third season was recently ordered to air in 2017.

Mack Rice, the songwriter whose tunes include Mustang Sally, has died at his home in Detroit. He was 82. Rice began as a singer in Detroit in the 1950s, with his band The Falcons also featuring future solo stars Wilson Pickett, Eddie Floyd and Joe Stubbs. While Rice carried on as a solo singer, his biggest success came as a songwriter. One of the few songwriters to pen songs for both the Motown and Stax soul record labels, Rice originally recorded ‘Mustang Sally’ himself in 1965. It wasn’t a hit, but his former Falcons bandmate Wilson Pickett asked Rice if he record it. ‘Mustang Sally’ eventually became a hit for Pickett in 1967, and has since been covered by the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Buddy Guy as well as featuring prominently in the film The Commitments. Rice’s other songs include ‘Respect Yourself’, a hit for The Staple Singers. Others to record Rice’s songs include Etta James, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Albert King and Ike And Tina Turner. After his musical inspiration began to fade, Rice ran an asphalt company in Detroit. He eventually released his first solo album ‘Right Now’ in 1992, which mixed his old hits with songs specially written for the album. Rice suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease for several years before his death.

The Strokes have shared the video for their recent EP track 'Threat Of You'. The song in question features on the band's latest EP 'Future Present Past', which was released in May. The surreal and self-referential clip makes reference to the band's blocked attempt to make a politicised video for their track 'OBLIVIUS'. The 'Threat Of You' video is set in the video shoot for that clip, with a group of mask-wearing suits attempting to steal the footage. Watch beneath. Julian Casablancas had previously claimed that The Strokes were forced to can a music video for 'OBLIVIUS' because of its political content. Speaking to Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 radio show, Casablancas said: “Well we were going to do 'OBLIVIUS’ first and we had all this kind of super heavy political content and then it kinda of through different indirect corridors got shutdown". Meanwhile, Casablancas stars in the video for Blood Orange’s new song ‘Augustine’.

Daniel Craig is in talks to star in Kings, a film about the race riots in Los Angeles in 1992. Halle Berry has already been cast in the movie, playing a tough mother who tries to track down children caught up in the violence. According to Deadline, Craig is in negotiations to play Ollie, a loner and one of the few white people living in South Central LA, who helps Berry’s character find the children. Kings is the first English-language film directed by Deniz Gamze Erguven, the French director whose film Mustang won the Europa Cinemas Label award at 2015’s Cannes Film Festival. There has been speculation for months that Craig wouldn’t play James Bond again. It was reported in May that Craig was ‘done’ portraying 007, but he said yesterday (June 28) that he “doesn’t know what the future holds” for the Bond franchise. As well as potentially starring in Kings, Craig has signed up to appear in Purity, a 20-part TV adaptation of Jonathan Franzen’s novel. It’s being made by Showtime, whose other shows include Ray Donovan and Homeland. The LA riots lasted six days in 1992, leading to 55 deaths after a policeman was acquitted over the killing of Rodney King, despite his death being captured on a home video camera.

Rapper Birdman has insisted he sleeps on a $1m pile of dollar bills strewn on top of his mattress. The co-founder of Cash Money Records says he felt “blessed” to have enough money to be able to sleep on a bed full of money. Birdman told ESPN: “I sleep on a million dollars cash. That’s just a fatuation for me in life. I do it and I’ll do it until I die. I was fortunate and blessed to be able to do it, and I sleep on it every night.” The rapper explained that he sleeps under a Versace bedspread with the pile of notes under the sheets on top of his mattress. Asked by host Bomani Jones if the bed is comfortable, Birdman replied that he didn’t notice the money because his mattress is the size of three king-size mattresses. Real name Bryan Williams, Birdman founded Cash Money in 1991 with his brother Ronald. It has since launched the careers of Drake, Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj. In April, Birdman launched a fashion line, Respek, whose clothes feature phrases from a radio interview Birdman gave in which he admitted he behaved embarrassingly. His most recent album was ‘Rich Gang’ in 2013.

Drake has revealed his gift for comedy in a previously-unseen Saturday Night Live sketch. The rapper hosted the sketch show for the second time in May, having previously been a host in 2014. Due to time constraints, a sketch with SNL regular comedians Beck Bennett and Bobby Moynihan was cut. It has now been placed on YouTube and sees Drake play a new employee at printing chain Kinko’s. The sketch sees Drake try and fail to join Bennett and Moynihan’s in-jokes, with the pair repeatedly telling him “You’re a peach, but you did it wrong.” In response, Drake begins inventing his own bizarre catchphrases. As well as his Saturday Night Live appearances, Drake is a regular attendee at comedy shows in Los Angeles. At Hollywood Comedy Store in 2015, he heckled comedian Red Grant for doing a Drake impersonation, telling Grant: “That was like some Omarion/Chris Brown together shit. That’s not me, man.” Mos Def is among other comedian rappers, having played a full stand-up show in 2015 at Montreal comedy club Phi, where he made jokes about Drake, Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa. Meanwhile, Drake is in competition with Kungs Vs Cookin’ On 3 Burners to be No 1 single. ‘One Dance’ is currently No 1 for an 11th week, the longest reign in the UK since Wet Wet Wet’s ‘Love Is All Around’ spent 15 weeks on top in 1994. Kungs Vs Cookin’ On 3 Burners’ ‘That Girl’ is at No 1 in midweek sales before the chart is officially announced on Friday, but it has been for the past fortnight before a late surge in sales for ‘One Dance’.
