UK outlet OK! reports that the producers of the next James Bond flick have approached Rihanna for a cameo, and she’s strongly considering the chance to share screen time with Daniel Craig. “Rihanna is a big fan of the Bond films and has always loved the idea of appearing in one,” a source told The Sunday Mirror. “She didn’t even need to think about it, she knows she wants to do it… She’s really excited.” Could Ri Ri give former 007 flames Halle Berry or Grace Jones a run for their money?

Solange and Ray Rice Inspire Law & Order: SVU Episode
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is back to trolling for TV. In its latest tube bait, the crime drama plucks inspiration from both Solange’s assault on Jay Z and Ray Rice’s domestic abuse footage as fodder for an episode titled “American Disgrace.” In the trailer, a surveillance video depicts a woman wildly swinging and kicking at a man in an elevator, later accusing him of rape (Bonus: She says the word “thot.” (Ugh.)) Controversial former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling also gets the shaft in the sensationalized segment. Of course something’s gonna go down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator, but… too soon, SVU.
Wu-Tang Clan’s A Better Tomorrow LP Set for Black Friday Release
Attention Wu-Tang Clan fans: Interlock those thumbs, spread your palms and wave your hands high—the mighty rap crew has new music on the way! In an interview with Billboard, RZA said the Clan’s sixth proper LP, A Better Tomorrow, “should be available by Black Friday,” which falls on November 28. And get this: It’s a concept album.
RZA says: “Musically it travels from a guy who is going through difficulties, tries to find himself, gets involved with some violence, some troubles, but then realizes that it’s best sometimes to walk away from the past and all the bad times and maybe work on making his life better, and making a better tomorrow.”
Forever ahead of the game, Wu-Tang is also releasing a special-edition of the eight-song project on a small, portable Boombot Rex speaker, so you can bump Ghostface and Raekwon’s vivid lyricism without the struggle of your MacBook audio. The Bluetooth speaker, which sports the group’s iconic “W” logo, has a slim production run of 3,000.
