IDRIS ELBA: BOND WRITER DISMISSES HIM AS "TOO STREET" FOR 007 ROLE

LONDON (AP) -- The man who wrote the new James Bond novel thinks people might be reading between the lines too much about his comments on casting for the movie based on the book. One of the candidates to be the new Bond is Idris Elba. But writer Anthony Horowitz says he feels Elba is "too street" to play 007 and that he isn't "suave" enough. Elba would be the first black in the history of the franchise to play the spy. That started an online firestorm, with people accusing Horowitz of suggesting Bond could only be a white guy. Horowitz says that isn't what he meant. In a Twitter post, he says: "I'm a writer not a casting director so what do I know?"

NEW YORK (AP) -- There is a temporary cease-fire between NBC and Donald Trump. The Republican presidential candidate will be a guest on "The Tonight Show" starring Jimmy Fallon. He will discuss his campaign and other issues. Other guests on the Sept. 11 show will be Terrence Howard and Pharrell Williams. Trump has been sniping at NBC since launching his bid for the White House. The network cut Trump loose as host of "Celebrity Apprentice" -- a move Trump said was an act of cowardice. NBC says it was because of his remarks about Mexican immigrants.

JIMMY FALLON - STEPHEN COLBERT

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Do you watch late night TV shows because of the host -- or because of the guests? NBC and CBS hope you'll be motivated to tune in by a combination of both -- and so they are loading up their late-night lineups with big names next week. That's when Stephen Colbert begins at the helm of "The Late Show" on CBS. He will have Vice President Joe Biden (BY'-dehn), George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson, Amy Schumer and Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush. NBC is countering with its lineup for "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon. Among those on with Fallon the week of Colbert's debut include Richard Gere, Jessica Simpson, Justin Timberlake, Andy Samberg, Carrie Underwood and the rap duo of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

VMA RATINGS IMPROVE

NEW YORK (AP) -- As the saying goes, there's strength in numbers. In the case of the ratings for the MTV Video Music Awards, the strength comes from the number of networks the show was on. Nielsen says just over 5 million people watched the VMAs on Sunday night. That would have been a sharp drop off from last year's show, which drew 8.3 million. But MTV's corporate parent simulcast the show on 10 separate networks -- including outlets like Comedy Central, BET, CMT, TV Land and Logo. When you add that up, the total is 9.8 million, enough to outpace last year's audience.

JOE BROWN RELEASED FORM JAIL

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- First he was out of options. Now, former TV judge Joe Brown is out of jail. The former Memphis judge has been released after serving a five-day sentence for contempt of court. Brown turned himself in last Thursday -- and was released yesterday. Brown got himself in trouble doing something more than a year ago that he usually didn't tolerate in his TV courtroom: mouthing off at a judge. Last month, the Tennessee Supreme Court declined a review of an appeals court ruling that said Brown had to do the time.

NEW YORK (AP) -- It's been a while since a summertime comedy has done this well. NBC says its "Carmichael Show" drew 4.8 million viewers for its debut on Sunday. That's the largest audience for any summertime comedy in eight years.

MOTORHEAD SAY LEMMY HAS BREATHING PROBLEMS AT HIGH ALTITUDE

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Motorhead promise that frontman Lemmy is fine and he really is affected by the altitude. Lemmy left the Motorhead show in Salt Lake City last Thursday after just four songs and blamed it on the thin air. Motorhead canceled their appearance Friday at Denver's Riot Fest. On Tuesday, he stopped the show after three songs in Austin. Motorhead say on their Facebook page Lemmy is still affected by altitude issues and he tried to get back on stage too quickly. Motorhead canceled last night's show in San Antonio and they promise they will be back when Lemmy is properly rested.

KEVIN GATES WANTED ON BATTERY CHARGE

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) -- Kevin Gates is accused of kicking a woman in the stomach during a rap show in Lakeland, Florida, on Friday. Police have filed a battery charge against Gates but have not been able to find him. Police say an 18-year-old woman touched Gates' leg while he was onstage and he kicked her.

DIRECTOR DEFENDS TAYLOR SWIFT VIDEO

NEW YORK (AP) -- The director of Taylor Swift's "Wildest Dreams" video says he chose to be historically accurate rather than politically correct. The video is set in 1950s Africa and shows Swift as an actress who falls in love with her co-star. Critics say black actors are seen only from a distance. Director Joseph Kahn says they collectively decided that putting more black actors in it would have been "rewriting history." He says the video was produced by a black woman and edited by a black man.

IRON MAIDEN'S BRUCE DICKINSON DISCUSSES HOW HE FOUND HIS CANCER

NEW YORK (AP) -- When Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson discovered a lump in his neck, he says he became "Doctor Google and Professor Wikipedia." Dickinson had been singing well for their "Book of Souls" record and he was hoping he only had strep throat. He concluded he either had tongue cancer or he was an Internet hypochondriac. He got it checked out and doctors determined he did have cancer. He has been treated and is doing much better now, so much so that he's gearing up for an Iron Maiden tour with himself as the pilot of the band's 747. Dickinson says it's technically not the biggest airplane anymore, but who cares because it's still the queen of the skies. "The Book of Souls" comes out tomorrow.

In 1940, Artie Shaw and his Gramercy Five recorded "Summit Ridge Drive" and "Special Delivery Stomp" for RCA Victor.

In 1951, the television soap opera "Search for Tomorrow" made its debut on CBS.

In 1967, the original version of the television game show "What's My Line?," hosted by John Charles Daly, broadcast its final episode after more than 17 years on CBS.

In 1976, America's Viking 2 lander touched down on Mars to take the first close-up, color photographs of the planet's surface.

In 1995, the online auction site eBay was founded in San Jose, California, by Pierre Omidyar under the name "AuctionWeb."

Ten years ago: President George W. Bush ordered more than 7,000 active duty forces to the Gulf Coast as his administration intensified efforts to rescue Katrina survivors and send aid to the hurricane-ravaged region in the face of criticism it did not act quickly enough. U.S. Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist died in Arlington, Virginia, at age 80, after more than three decades on the Supreme Court.

The Fox network announced that Kara DioGuardi was stepping down as one of the judges on "American Idol," following the departures of Simon Cowell and Ellen DeGeneres.

One year ago: President Barack Obama, during a visit to Estonia, harshly condemned Russian aggression in Ukraine as a threat to peace. President Obama also said the United States would not be intimidated by Islamic State militants after the beheading of American journalist Steven Satloff. A judge sentenced Theodore Wafer, a suburban Detroit man who'd killed an unarmed woman on his porch instead of calling police, to at least 17 years in prison after telling the family of 19-year-old Renisha McBride he would carry "guilt and sorrow forever."

RIHANNA: CONCERT SERIES STARTS WITH PARTY

MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Usually showing up late for a date will get you a less-than-warm reception. But Rihanna got cheers -- even though she was two hours behind schedule for her performance in Mexico City the other night. She started what's known as her "777" tour with an exclusive party for about 2,000 fans. She thanked fans for their patience, saying their hanging in there until she showed up Wednesday night really made her "feel loved." The concert swing will see Rihanna perform seven shows in seven days in seven different cities. Stops on the tour include Toronto, Paris, Berlin and London before ending up in New York City.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Nicki Minaj has already won a lot of awards during her career. But she says her career isn't about collecting hardware to put in her trophy case. She says the biggest draw for her being awards shows is performing before a live audience at the venue and on TV. She says that's what she will be looking forward to at the American Music Awards on Sunday. She says she has been at awards shows where she totally forgot she was up for a nomination -- until her name was read off as a winner. The way she sees it, if she keeps making good music, the awards will take care of herself. If you should happen to run into Nicki between now and Sunday, you can remind her she's up for four nominations at the AMAs.

Nicki Minaj says she's more excited about performing at award shows than she is at winning trophies.

THE SUPREMES: FORMER HOUSING PROJECT IN DETROIT TO BE RAZED

DETROIT (AP) -- They most recently were known as the Frederick Douglass Homes in Detroit. But back in the day they were known as the Brewster projects. And that was the place where Diana Ross and the Supremes grew up. Now, the housing project is about to become another memory. Detroit mayor Dave Bing says the demolition of the massive high rise apartment buildings could start early next year. The city has no set plans for redevelopment of the complex where Diana Ross, Florence Ballard and Mary Wilson lived before signing with Berry Gordy's Motown Records in the early 1960s. Bing says he knows the former Brewster projects have "a lot of history" -- but has since "become an eyesore."
