Beyonce Knowles's little nephew is all set to follow his mum and aunt into showbusiness, he's an expert drummer and pianist at six. Proud mama Solange Knowles admits a passion for music runs through Julez's veins and he is fast developing a taste for the limelight.
"It's starting to seem inevitable," she tells WENN. "Naturally he wants to be involved in music in any way that he can. He's in drum lessons, piano lessons and he wants to take guitar lessons and, as much as I try to shield him from it, I don't know if that makes the curiosity even stronger."
However, Knowles insists she will support any career decision Julez makes and offer as much advice as possible from her own experiences growing up in the music industry. She says, "If it's something that he absolutely wants to do and he's really passionate about it and wants to make it into a career, I would totally encourage him to try to do it as independently as possible. I don't mean just with the label, the business side of things, but also just the creative process in general."
Beleaguered Broadway musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" has been marred by another accident, actress T.V. CARPIO has temporarily bowed out of the production after an onstage mishap. "Across the Universe" star Carpio replaced injured Natalie Mendoza as villainess Arachne in the musical earlier in 2011, but now she's had to take leave too.
Carpio was hurt during a stunt last week and has abandoned the role to allow herself time to recover. In a statement, spokesperson Rick Miramontez says, "T.V. Carpio sustained an injury on Wednesday, March 16 during an onstage battle scene with a fellow actor. On doctor's orders, she will be out of the show for the next two weeks."
Broadway World reports Carpio is nursing a whiplash injury. Actress America Olivo is now taking over the role until Carpio's return.
The show, which will temporarily close in April so producers can overhaul it before its official launch in June, has been plagued with onset accidents. Four other castmembers, including Mendoza, have been left injured after incidents in rehearsals and preview performances.
