Taking Names: Richards, Jagger reflect on re-release of ‘Some Girls’
All Mr. Jagger would say is that “we have a lot of things planned. Who knows what will come to fruition?”
“He’s a brother, a best friend and probably the most contentious person I know. All collaborations are like that. Nothing goes totally smoothly, but we always patch it up. We patched it up now. The thing is we enjoy working with each other; it’s the idea of it that’s frightening,” Mr. Richards said with a laugh.
Beyonce worried fans would figure out baby secret
It’s tough to keep a pregnancy a secret when you’re in the public eye, and for a while, Beyonce thought the jig was up.
“The whole time I definitely was thinking, ‘Everyone knows, everyone can see,’ ” the singer said before the screening of her new concert DVD Sunday in New York.
According to the Associated Press, it became particularly difficult for the Grammy winner to hide her growing baby bump when she performed for four nights to sold-out crowds at New York’s Roseland Theater in August.
“When you’re pregnant, it’s a little bit harder to breathe, so it was hard doing all the choreography and singing at the same time,” the 30-year-old singer said in an onstage interview.
Fans who didn’t get a chance to catch “The Intimate Nights” shows - what Beyonce said was her last concert performance of the year - can get a behind-the-scenes look in her new “Live at Roseland” DVD, available exclusively at Wal-Mart this week. The deluxe two-DVD set will be available everywhere on Tuesday.
Along with classics from her Destiny’s Child days and major hits from her solo career, the DVD includes interviews with the singer, home footage of rehearsals and special family moments - even shots of Beyonce in a wedding gown.
She said she also hopes the film will serve as a time capsule for her unborn child, a chance for him or her to say, “I can’t believe I was in that belly,” she said.
‘The Help’s‘ Davis lends support to R.I. library
The public library in Central Falls, R.I., that was closed temporarily because of the city’s dire finances is expanding its hours again after receiving a donation from actress Viola Davis and a state grant.
The Adams Memorial Library said Monday that it received a $1,000 check from Miss Davis, who grew up in Central Falls. Miss Davis appeared recently in the movie “The Help” and was nominated for an Oscar for her role in 2008’s “Doubt.”
The library also received a $3,500 grant with the help of state Sen. Elizabeth Crowley.
