Spotlight: Annie Lennox's Charity Work

Annie Lennox has come a long way since fronting the Grammy Award-winning Eurythmics in the 1980s. Since then she has become a successful solo artist, sold more than 80 million records, and become renowned for her charity work with organizations such as Amnesty International, Greenpeace, and Nelson Mandela’s 46664 Foundation.

The singer, who received the British Red Cross' Services to Humanity Award in 2008, dedicates much of her time to raising awareness of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa.

Lennox released a special fundraising single called Sing, which featured a 23-member choir of female celebrities, including Madonna, Faith Hill, Pink, and many more. Proceeds from the single went to the Treatment Action Campaign (Tac), an organization that that provides much needed support in the continent’s struggle against the deadly virus.

Mel B Finalizes Divorce From Stephen Belafonte

Mel B is officially a single woman.

The America's Got Talent judge finalized her divorce from Stephen Belafonte on Friday.

According to court documents obtained by Et, Mel B (real name Melanie Brown) and Belafonte will share joint legal custody of their 6-year-old daughter, Madison, and have arranged a physical custody schedule. Neither party is paying child support at this time.

Mel B is required to pay $15,000 per month in spousal support to Belafonte until Dec. 1, 2020, or until further order from the court. Division of property still needs to be determined.

The court docs also require Belafonte to destroy "compromising videos" of his ex-wife, which he claims are only accessible through his iCloud and have not been uploaded or otherwise disseminated. Belafonte says that there are no thumb drives, discs or CD-roms that have these videos, to his knowledge.

Mel B married Belafonte in June 2007 and filed for divorce in March 2017. See more in the video below.

The fascinating prescience of Tomorrow Never Dies

Mark Allison Dec 12, 2017

It's 20 years today that Tomorrow Never DIes first landed in UK cinemas. But was it, in its own way, ahead of its time?

Imagine a world in which deceitful news reporters and mysterious computer hackers are conspiring to destabilise the geopolitical status quo. Meanwhile, the United Kingdom has developed delusions of grandeur about its place in the world, and begun to embark upon an effort to restore itself to former imperial greatness. All this might seem a little familiar to anyone who has glanced at a newspaper recently, but it’s not a summary of recent events – this is a synopsis for the seventeenth James Bond film, Roger Spottiswoode’s Tomorrow Never Dies, which has just turned 20 years old.

If this was the 1990’s I might not feel too secure in saying this but seeing as how it’s now and the Spice Girls have been over for about a half a decade I think I’ll take the chance. The popular girl band had their shot and they made a good accounting of it for a while but with only a few hit songs they didn’t stand much of a chance competing when they couldn’t come up with enough new material to really keep their fans entertained. They weren’t a flash in the pan, they did their part to become
